No leader ever lives forever. But when a leader of a country is considered to be dangerous and hostile great interest is taken into their health and who would replace them if they were to die. The United States intelligence group has been watching Kim Jong Un for some time and it looks like he is in critical danger after his last surgery. The North Koreans would never admit that he is ill, but people with good information report that he is not as healthy as he seems.
The little dictator has been absent from important events lately and has been absent from the public’s eye if there is no need to have him present. He even missed his grandfather’s birthday party. The North Koreans are silent on his health, but inside sources are hinting that it is not good.
The communist leader thinks that he can eat, drink, and be merry without consequences. But life catches up with even the cruelest of men. His overweight body, constant smoking, and other things have finally caught up with him. He went to surgery to have some cardiovascular work done. His recovery appears to be rough as he is having more treatments that some people are keeping quiet about. Kim has portrayed himself in god-like qualities to his people. He wants them to worship him. But life is showing that he is just a man.
There is a lot of speculation as to the dictator’s health. People that are protecting his image would report that all is well. Even sources in South Korea are trying to pass off that his health is just fine. But inside sources are telling a different story. Information is closely monitored in the rogue nation. People that speak out and tell stories are silenced. So, people have learned to stay quiet or risk death.
Given all the rumors of his failing health the United States as reached out to their experts hoping to find some truth, but there has been only silence. Kim has been absent of late from the public spotlight. Actions speak louder than words. Kim is one that boasts about being in front of the camera. For him to stay away only brings speculation. News reporters have to rely on cunning observation to tell a story in North Korea.
Their people are kept from sharing and reporting on the truth. They have no free press, and they are basically told what to publish. His last appearance was April 11. And since then he has not been seen or heard from. For him to miss the birthday of his grandfather, who is said to be the founder of North Korea, is a political nightmare. The self-proclaimed god would not miss an important event if there wasn’t something wrong with him.
Bruce Klingner who is with Heritage Foundation and a former CIA chief over North Korea has stated that “There have been a number of recent rumors about Kim’s health (smoking, heart, and brain). If Kim is hospitalized, it would explain why he wasn’t present on the important April 15th celebrations. But, over the years, there have been several false health rumors about Kim Jong-un or his father. We’ll have to wait and see.” The rumor is that he is really sick.
His family line is filled with health issues. Kim Jong II missed a parade in 2008 and it was later revealed that he had a stroke. He would die three years later. So, it is not unlikely that this same kind of thing has happened to this fake god.
The death of Kim would cause some concern for other nations. There is no telling what kind of psychopath would rise to power in crazy land. President Trump has stated that both countries have a “great relationship.” President Trump has been working with Kim to bring about a better North Korea. But his health is delaying the efforts. The coronavirus certainly has kept them from being able to meet. And now it looks like North Korea may have a new leader soon.
