Kim Jong Il dead.

So I guess that whole, north korea will start world war three thing was just a silly media scare like 2ky, african bumble bees and global warming...
Hmm what did you guys think of him?

"Millions of North Koreans had been "engulfed in indescribable sadness", the KCNA news agency said. People were seen weeping in the capital Pyongyang.

His son Kim Jong-un was described by KCNA as the "great successor" who North Koreans should unite behind.

Pyongyang's neighbours are on alert. Unconfirmed South Korean reports say the North tested a missile on Monday.

Yonhap news agency in Seoul said a short-range missile was fired off the eastern coast of the poor and isolated nuclear-armed nation, but it was not clear if the test was connected to the announcement of Kim Jong-il's death.

“This could be a turning point for North Korea”

World reaction
Death triggers swift reaction
South Korea put its armed forces on alert after the death was announced, saying the country was on a crisis footing. Japan's government convened a special security meeting.

China - North Korea's closest ally and biggest trading partner - expressed shock at the news of his death and pledged to continue making "active contributions to peace and stability on the Korean peninsula and in this region".

Asian stock markets fell after the news was announced."

It will be interesting whether his son, if he assumes leadership, will take the country in a different direction.

He's gone. Wow.
The local news for my area got the news from the source who claimed "He died from fatigue. He over-used his powers".

And, just to clear it up, here is a picture of the new leader:

Mhm, his son.
According to nation news in korea it was a heart attack, which considering his age and job is kinda reasonable.

Whoever made that needs a funny award. Something titled "I am BEAST jabberwocky (sic)!" ... or something along those lines.

O.k. I need to point out Global Warming is still a huge problem, and I don't know what to think about North Korea's new leader but we(we being USA) are still keeping an eye on them for South Korea.
