#1 N. Korea's Kim may have had stroke09-09-2008, 02:23 PM
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - North Korean leader Kim Jong-il may have had a stroke within the past couple of weeks, a U.S. intelligence official said on Tuesday.
"It does appear that Kim Jong-il has suffered a health setback, potentially a stroke," the official said, speaking on condition of anonymity.
She said there have been no signs of a change in governing power and that assessing whether Kim was still capable of governing would "call for a lot of speculation."
Kim failed to appear at a triumphal military parade on Tuesday celebrating North Korea's 60th birthday.
South Korea's largest daily, the Chosun Ilbo, said Kim, 66 and suspected of suffering from chronic illness, collapsed last month, citing a South Korean diplomatic source in Beijing.

You mean his look alike had a stroke. Japan believes that he died in 2003.I feel that once a black fella has referred to white foks as "honky paleface devil white-trash cracker redneck Caspers," he's abdicated the right to get upset about the "N" word. But that's just me. -- Jim Goad

Kim doesn't die, he gets elected President for life alongside his father. They'll be co-Presidents.
