In North Korea…
Eric Lindholm points out that there are reports of increasing dissent towards the North Korean dictator Kim Jong Il. They're also removing his photograph from important institutions in Pyongyang.
North Korea's official KCNA news has reported that the 62-year-old Stalinist has reviewed some troops. It did not say when he did this, just that this is something he has done.
Something is going on over there. I've often wondered if North Korea might be ripe for a coup without our CIA even noticing. The people in the north one way or another have kept in contact with family & friends in the south over the years. Some jealousy must have developed and from that a desire for freedom may have been born. Even if the desire is just materialistic it can be powerful.
