It looks as if Kim Jong Il has also snubbed the General he was supposedly talking about handing the succession to for his youngest son, Kim Jong-Un, who was educated in Switzerland.

I wonder about the sons demeanor.
He’s younger than I am, so I’m sure he’s not going to be prone to good descisions. 😉

Interesting, but not in a good way.

Prop –  From your response I’ll go and assume your previous comment is meant only as a joke and not declaration of a future (or past) questionable intent.  And yes, your later posts were generally much better in having a friendlier tone, staying on topic, and quality of content pertaining to the subject.  I think there’s a common understanding, and in the interest of better harmony will say no more on it

Oh I don’t know… at 25 I did pretty well with making decisions.  Don’t know if that makes me wise beyond my years back then, or just boring

I wonder what Kim’s other two sons think about the youngest being tapped to succeed him as leader? Maybe they have their own goals or ambitions separate from leadership of North Korea, but then again maybe not.  Or maybe the right hand man, Jang, will take a more active role in ‘guiding’ Kim’s son than the father intends.  Anyway, overall it seems like a relatively logical choice…. keep the family line of leadership unbroken (important in a nation that is told to see its leader as almost-divine) and combine it with an experienced old hand who can steer him in the right direction (if not just outright making many or all of the "real" decisions himself behind closed doors).  A pretty common occurrence back when monarchies were still the dominant political force in much of the world, and one can argue North Korea has some similarities to the monarchies of old.

My previous comment to you was certainly not meant as a joke.

I think I may have been too vague… by "previous comment" I was actually talking about post 148.
