    End of an era. Good. But what will the next one bring?

    Alright. Time to face facts. NK's leadership is not the way it is because it likes to be mean and closed and starve its people

    It's just that other govts don't want to help it; they instead want to just exploit its desperate position to their advantage, and the US govt is notorious for doing that. The aid packages offered by nations (including the US) always come w/exploitative conditions. So for NK to surrender its nukes means surrendering its sovereignty and of course, it doesn't want that.

    What NK should do is follow the China model of reforms--making a slow gradual transition to a more efficient market economy. It should try to establish closer relations w/China, if possible.

    It also wouldn't hurt NK to allow the UN to inspect its nukes, assuming it has any that are functional. Once a nuclear deterrent is present and working, there's no reason for secrecy.

    NK can reform itself w/the right leadership. We can only hope that the son rises to the challenge and makes it happen.

    I watched quite a few documentaries on North Korea when i was procrastinating from a presentation on their nuclear policy and what struck me after a while is that every foreign journalist who goes into NK to make a foreign documentary ends up in the exact same hotel room.

    North Korea's film industry can now hopefully move past this...

    it's possible. every one of those rooms is probably bugged like crazy.

    they probably don't need too many of them. not a tourist hot spot.

    MEMORANDUM FROM SON OF FEARLESS LEADER - Your fearless leader is dead. The world must see you cry from grief. If the world does not see you cry from grief, then all of North Korea will see your family cry from grief. So put a cry on your face, and you will be happy, because you will not be dead.

    Signed,
