Official news is breaking the story; KCNA has no word on successors.
Holy fucking shit.

Yikes. Well, at least "who said something stupid in the latest Republican debate" will not be on the news in the morning.

I know stuff like this is what reporters "live" for, but they are probably going crazy right now to pull up old stories, find people to talk to, etc. Would not want to be in the researchers' shoes right now.

This year is unbelievable. I thought his health was improving?

Where will I get stories of megalomania now?

I doubt war will happen. In fact, peaceful unification is jsut as likely as continued iron fist.

Wasn't he making moves to set up his son as his successor? Otherwise, I imagine it'll go to one of his advisers. But damn, that's some big news.

There's still Mugabe and the Iranian President.
After Bin Laden and Gadaffi were killed this year, I was half expecting Kim Jong Il to be next in line. Called it.

Kim Jong-Un, his youngest son, is the one slated for the throne, I think. He's largely a question mark and a lot of North Koreans don't know much about him, which means that for the first time in years NK is facing a leadership crisis. When Kim Jong-il landed himself the heir-presumptive position in the late 1960s, he started building up his own cult of personality in conjunction with his father's, and the handoff of power was gradual throughout the 1980s and early 1990s.

The thing is, there's been no evidence that anything of the sort has been at work recently, meaning that Jong-Un may face competition from generals and other officials.
omg!!!! this has been a bad year for dicatators hasnt it???

Looking forward to see his funeral. It gonna be fabolous!

On a more serious note lets hope the Korean War doesnt re-start.
I will always cherish the chance of a new beggining.
@Baff: It won't. The North Korean leadership isn't stupid.

EDIT: Dear Lord, what happened to the post boxes? What is this hideously festive mess concealing my words?
