  2. There were rumors of a coup but that clearly hasnt happened yet. As for the sign and leaflet business it may or may not be true. For a person/group to begin such an open campaign means that they are highly placed and not fearful of being arrested. This type of campgn was common in Soviet Russia and after Mao's death when a leader was on the way out or it signaled a power struggle.
  3. Current rumours say that he is trying to stop his cult status from over-shadowing his fathers. In reality, it may well signal the start of a power struggle between him and the military. It did take him a few years to take total control of the country, perhaps the senior Generals view him as a liability to the military's control on the country.

    However, as the country is so shut to outsiders, we may only learn of this once its all over and the dust has settled.

    If you want a really good laugh at the propaganda machine at work in North Korea, go to this site. Don't load the Japanese characters!

    You have to feel sorry for these people :(

    Perhaps the end really is nigh :?
