Are North Korean Statements-Sound And Fury?

Recent photographs which depict North Korean leader Kim Jong Il as seriously ill, reportedly with cancer, may explain the outpouring of threats and warnings about possible nuclear attacks that North Korea issues almost every day. The North has threatened a “thousand-fold” military retaliation if anyone attacks their nation. North Koreans can sleep peacefully at night because there is no plan to invade or bomb that nation. General Walter Sharp, the top US commander in Korea assures one and all there is sufficient military force to handle, “anything North Korea can throw at us.”

The world can expect turmoil and confusion once Kim dies and his son attempts to become leader of the country. It is almost certain there must be generals in the North Korean army ready to make a quick grab at power and send the young punk son off to China.

Of course, no one knows exactly what will happen. Who knows, maybe North Korea has a young George Bush who sees WMD in South Korea that must be destroyed.
