It's blatantly obvious that none of you know the first thing about North Korea or its history. Kim Jong-Il wasn't a nice guy by a long run, but anyone who thinks that he was actually running the show is a complete idiot. The council of generals is really in charge. His father, Kim Il-Sung was the only one who was actually a one-man dictatoriship, and to be quite honest, in the 1950s, he was a significantly better choice than Syngman Rhee, the US-backed dictator of South Korea, who still ranks as one of the most brutal dictators in the history of the 20th century.

Anything you can say about the repressive North Korean regime also applied to the repressive South Korean regime, but they don't teach you that in school, because the U.S. backed Rhee. Today, South Korea is no longer a real dictatorship, but they use the menacing presence of North Korea (which appears to be far less potent than it is painted to be) to maintain a degree of military repression comparable to the way Likud runs Israel.

Actually, "they" said Kim died of "overwork" while "dedicating his life to the people." And the official news agency KCNA said Kim suffered "great mental and physical strain" while on a train.

Now ALL OF YOU!!!! Stop posting on Queenzone immediately and learn the History of North Korea and It's Leader so that we can have a much more intense conversation.  Sorry TQ, we should all be ready by about 4:00pm today.

You would have known this if you had just read about the Second World War in the Pacific and the Korean War, or watched the news in or prior to 1994.

"Vaclav Havel died too"

=====================

How sad it is that a war-mongering bully gets so much more press than a truly good man of peace.  But it's the human condition - we are more attracted to war than peace.  Weapons and destruction are more exciting to most than taking care of one another.

Havel's death made the news here, and judging by the comments, many Canadians greatly respect him.

http://www.cbc.ca/news/world/story/2011/12/18/czech-havel.html

I just can't believe he didn't receive a Nobel Peace prize.  Obama has done many great things, but was not deserving of this prestigious honour, especially when people like Havel were on the shortlist.

=================

Obviously I see your sarcasm, but did I even imply he fixed everything?

He repealed DADT, he pushed for universal health care (and it was recently reported that 1.5 million additional young people now have health insurance), and ... for all you war-mongers.. bin Laden was killed on his watch.

Considering what he's been up against, I'd say he's done pretty well.

I would not claim it as a credit to him - it was pure luck for him that it happened in his watch.  Any of the previous presidents would have killed bin Laden if he was caught in their time in office.

Sure - if they had put a bit more effort in.  It was very fortuitous that he was tracked down the way that he was, but it only turned out that way because they'd decided to make him a priority again.  I guess blowing up opium farmers can only be fun for so long.  (Although I'd like to test that theory).

Bob:

Havel may have been a "man of peace", but he was never too big a man to crudely abuse his friends and acquaintances in his plays. He actually seemed to enjoy shaming them in front of the world, and apparently regarded that as fitting protest to communism.
