A Despot Dies, oh dear

N Korean leader Kim Jong-il dies

The BBC's Lucy Williamson says news of the death has taken people by surprise

North Korean leader Kim Jong-il has died of a heart attack at the age of 69, state media have announced.

Millions of North Koreans were “engulfed in indescribable sadness”, the KCNA state news agency said, as people wept openly in Pyongyang.

I got as far as the second paragraph…

Of course, that has to be bullshit. Had it said that millions were cheering in the streets, I could have believed that.

Of course, it may well refer to the fact that the people know there is trouble ahead with his successor. That would be enough to make people weep.

North Korea has probably the most impoverished people on the planet, and they weep at the passing of the despot that made them suffer…

Get real.
