    What to expect? Kim Jong Il was also his father's successor.

    Unless he was promoted to being something other than North Korean, it really isn't much of a promotion.

    His first act was to establish physical security nationwide by having fireguards check wall lockers everyhour after lights out.

    Did this kook ever look better than in that puppet movie, World Police? No! If this guy walked down a street in anyplace other than North Korea, he would be a laughing stock. You can't take him seriously - until you realize he has his finger on the trigger of too many weapons.

    I wonder if he will do a cameo appearance in "Team America 2" like his father did in the original "Team America".
