Well, we live in interesting times.
No sooner have the Americans withdrawn (most of) their forces from Iraq than another leader of an axis of evil country kicks the bucket.
North Korean leader Kim Jong-il has died at the age of 69, state-run television has announced.
Mr Kim, who has led the communist nation since the death of his father in 1994, died on a train while visiting an area outside the capital, the announcement said.
He suffered a stroke in 2008 and was absent from public view for months.
His designated successor is believed to be his third son, Kim Jong-un, who is thought to be in his late 20s.
I’m sure conspiracy theorists will have fun with that coincidence.
Seems timely that Anti-Dismal posted this.
