Bareefer Obonghit: The UN should step in and handle this Un v. Uncle dispute.
KarmicDisaster: Bareefer Obonghit: The UN should step in and handle this Un v. Uncle dispute.I'm sure that Napoleon Solo is already on the case.
Arkanaut: My, isn't he shaping up to be quite the little Joffrey?
m00: Arkanaut: My, isn't he shaping up to be quite the little Joffrey?That would only be a proper comparison if NK wasn't horribly screwed up before he took power.Can you imagine the situation of coming to power in NK? The people have been brainwashed for two generations, the generals are the aristocracy, random aunts and uncles have their own power base (and none of them want reform), the legal system is primarily used to execute political enemies... or people who don't "cry enough" when a public figure dies, there are concentration camps for dissenters where whole families go to die, everybody is starving, and the whole world hates you.It would take a very smart and clever person to bring NK out of that pit, someone devious to manipulate the internal politics and eliminate roadblocks to reform, but also decent enough not to just sit back and accept his own divine mythology. Maybe Kim Jong Un is that person, maybe not. But if he is, we won't know until he's ready to make his move.
houginator: Publically executing people via mortar is far more of an indicator of Joffrey-ism than some guy heroically scheming to bring NK out of the dark ages.
