Who was it that famously said, "Fasten your seatbelts, it's going to be a bumpy night"? That comment would seem to apply to the unexpected death of DPRK (North Korea) Dear Leader Kim Jong-il. Here is the news from The International Herald Tribune.
We need to think about who will be the new leader and what he (unlikely she) will have to do to establish legitimacy.
We need to think about what happens if there is regime collapse and people start starving by the millions.
We need to think about "loose nucs" scenarios.
But, most of all we could pray for a soft landing.
