Ailing North Korea leader sends message to China
Seoul (AFP) - North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un, who has not been seen for nearly a month due to apparent health problems, sent a congratulatory message to China on its national day Wednesday, state media said.
Kim was last seen in public on September 3. A rare admission from North Korea that he was suffering "discomfort" has triggered frenzied speculation about his health and close scrutiny of any mention of the young leader in state media.
The three-paragraph message sent to Chinese President Xi Jinping marked the 65th anniversary of the founding of the People's Republic of China, the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) reported.
Kim voiced his hopes for China's future prosperity and the happiness of the Chinese people, KCNA said.
Kim took over the reins of power in North Korea following the death of his father Kim Jong-Il in December 2011.
He sent similar national day messages to the Chinese head of state in 2012 and 2013.
Recent state TV footage of Kim had shown him looking overweight and walking with a pronounced limp, which some analysts took to be a symptom of chronic gout.
Rumours about his health multiplied after Kim failed to attend a meeting of the North's rubber-stamp parliament last week.
From what I've heard and read his problem appears seem to be his ankles which are suffering due to weight and the elevator shoes he wears to make himself look taller. He appears to be afraid of appearing on "Big World Little People" which I think is on the oompa loompa channel. Let's all hope that his problems swiftly travel from his ankles to his knees and from there on to his hips. And then his people can compose more poems on how much he is missed and how they yearn for his company. I would like to personally volunteer to attend a state funeral in his honor. They can bury the terrible tiny turd in a shoe box. Next my prose to the glorious leader.As I think of your discomfort
My tears flow like dysentery on a scorching hot day
I am but one of many who hope that your #$%$ burns like mine
For you great leader are exalted and beyond the pain of the masses
We grieve when we think that the eighth dwarf, Crazy, suffers and that we
The most humble of creatures are not able to increase your pain
We wish you rest. We wish you peace. We wish you rest in peace

There's a possibility someone has slipped this guy a 'mickey' so to speak with an exotic state sponsored poison, slow acting, but assuredly fatal. This all sounds good, but sometimes its better to deal with the devil you know than the devil you don't. If a more progressive leader were to replace him, changing N. Korea's national fate, then it would be for the better, but seemingly only another evil,strongman type of persona will replace him and continue their perennial saber rattling. The world is so so tired of N. Korea and their schtick...no? : |

Whatever happens to NK - happens. The government cuts them off from international society so they can get away with what ever they want to. The aftermath is all we can expect to deal with. What trips me out is how NK civilians allow the regime to get away with this. I would be on edge if I were on a list of possible dissidents but I would be terrified if my country was cut off from the International Community. It's like a prison within a nation and keeping everyone ignorant so as to control them is just another form of slavery...
I wonder if the camera crew who videoed him limping are dead now. Or worse...
I could be wrong, obviously, however, I don't believe for a minute that he is 'just' in bad health. This puke's days are numbered as a leader. Too young and too many enemy's within his own leadership. Some in the military and the population see what is going on in the Arab countries (good or bad) along with, now, Hong Kong and are just waiting for the chance to rid themselves of this family of butchers. The military may split, change is coming, but it won't be priceless.
As you can notice from the pic, there are not 1 but 2 cronies with notepads. One on his right and one on his left. That way, they can write down everything he says regardless of which side of his mouth he's puking out of
Kim No Slim; Maybe diabetic? Maybe Cancer? Maybe Mental? Maybe the military or China is trying to poison him slowly? Maybe he eats like a pig getting gout (people know how to eat; pigs don't)? Who knows! All I know; his older brother defected to China when his father was alive. He IS slim and a probable diplomat.
I have seen this all along; N Korean has always been China's bitch. China wants him out! If China and N. Korea got together there would be a huge global issue!
Peoples hopes for the demise of lil kim' might just fall under the category of be careful what you ask for. There is no guarantee that a more moderate regime might take his place (he killed most of the moderates already)! Imagine a Russian/Chinese backed communist regime controlling N Korea... Most people do not know/ realize that the Korean war of the 50's is as close as we have come to ww3. Joseph Stalin and chairman Mao agreed to both commit troops to support N Korea in fighting US/ South korea, and China snuck 150K troops into the N Korean lines. Thankfully Stalin renieged on his promise to Mao; which resulted in an icy relationship between the 2 communist giants. A united USSR/Chinese block would have possibly resulted in a different end to the cold war! Currently China and Russia are in expansionist mode and the Korean peninsula is a lynch pin.
Ailing North Korean leader? Why, it couldn't happen to a nicer person. Unless he is already dead and they want to keep it a secret until they figure out how to break it to the brainwashed masses
Image when fat boy meets his commie God, the cremation will last a month burning all that cheese...
