      Exactly. Anyone in their right mind doesn't want war, whether they're politically bent one way or another doesn't matter one whit.

      You're overthinking it.

      So little traffic in N Korea. It's like Utopia.
      I want to live there!

      This thread disappointed me... every dictator should have at least one Mercedes 600 pullman
      per wiki

      quote-------------

      Kim is thought to have been born in 1983 or early 1984.[5] North Korean officials currently gave his date of birth as 8 January 1984.[10]
      He attended the English-language International School of Berne, Switzerland until 1998 under a pseudonym.[11][12][13][14][15] Former classmates have asserted that he attended Gümlingen International School or Liebefeld public school. His pseudonym at Gümlingen was "Pak Chol" and he pretended to be the son of a driver, although in Liebefeld, the teacher told the class that he was from North Korea. An older student chaperoned him all the time. In Liebefeld, he told his friend Joao Micaelo that he was the son of the heir to the North Korea leader, though Micaelo said he didn't believe him at the time. He was described as a shy child who was uncommunicative with unfamiliar people and was only distinguished for his competitive nature, particularly in sports, and a fascination with the NBA and Michael Jordan. Allegedly, one friend claimed that he had met and even had pictures taken with Kobe Bryant and Toni Kukoc, but was unsure where.[16] He reportedly stayed in Switzerland until late 1999 or early 2000 when former classmates claimed he "disappeared." The ambassador of North Korea in Switzerland, Ri Tcheul, had a close relationship with him and acted as a mentor while there. Switzerland has always stayed neutral in the conflict between North and South Korea. The Kim clan is said to organise family meetings at Lake Geneva and Interlaken.[17]
      For many years, only one confirmed photograph of him was known outside North Korea, apparently taken in the mid-1990s, when he was eleven.[18] Occasional other supposed images of him surfaced but were often disputed.[19][20][21][22] It was only in June 2010, shortly before he was given official posts and publicly introduced to the North Korean people, that more pictures were released of Kim, taken when he was attending school in Switzerland.[23][24] The first official image of him as an adult was a group photograph released on 30 September 2010 at the end of the party conference that effectively anointed him, in which he is seated in the front row, two places from his father. This was followed by newsreel footage of him attending the conference.[25]

      ---------------


      This guy is rather worldly... which means he may see things differently.
      Though I am not sure if N. Korea is willing to lose its danger image, as that does give it some power.

      North Korea is truly fascinating for me. It is something to be completely cut off from the world in this day and age.

      Very interesting to see how this unfolds in the coming months

      Hey, TCL is faster than light speed when it comes to news. I don't pay much attention to important events, but TCL always manages to incorporate them into some sort of entertaining car related thread within milliseconds of such occurrence.

      No better time for the USA to invade another country during leadership transition for the "good of democracy."

      Oh, does this count as me hotlinking your photobucket picture since I'm quoting it?

      I hope you're right.

      So, how do North Koreans immortalize their fair leaders? Is he getting pickled or what?

      If they treat him like Kim Il-Sung, then yep. Lenin-style embalming and glass coffin for your viewing pleasure.
