Something to think about – the afterlife of a nation

Kim is not ill, he is dead. So what happens now? With plenty nuclear bombs and warheads stuffed safely away from public view, North Korea is locked and loaded and it has a new leader.  Actually we don’t know if it does, we only know the last one is dead. His 30-year old son may or may not be taking over. Or the army may or may not be taking over; in the meantime the rest of us can only sit by and watch – and of course think about North Korea and war.  Is there life after death for North Korea? Weapons of mass destruction and the possibility of a world war started by a 30 year old man eager to prove he is up to the task of filling his father and grandfather’s shoes, that is something worthy of our creative thinking.

    Just hope that Kim Un does not watch the GOP debates, Fox, or listen to Rush: the war cries from those chicken-hawks will scare Little Kim into letting loose some missiles they have, some with nuclear weapons attached. “Nukes” that were, by the way, built during the last Bush regime, a process that some would argue was escalated after Bush recklessly made his “axis-of-evil” remark.

    Or we could use Newt’s advice and shine lasers into their eyes (or whatever it was his “brilliant intellect” envisioned using lasers for)…

    Luckily, dead daddy made sure most of his generals were very old (several 80 years or older) and unless there is a coup while they are taking their afternoon nap, most of the million plus soldiers, and weapons Duncan Hunter and John McCain get goosebumps seeing, will march in unison beneath Little Kim’s balcony, while crumbs of bread are paid to professional mourners who always have something to cry about…
