There is the possibility that there will be conflict with South Korea, but it's a small risk to take. The nations of the world don't want Kim Jong Il out of power, they just want him to stop building nuclear bombs and stop trying to aggravate things.
Kill Kim Jong Il = his son takes over, economic freedom for foreign countries is halted, Songun (focus on military) policy is increased, more shelling of the South and sinking their shit.
Yeah. I was telling my flatmates this smacks of China. If shit starts to go down, the US has other priorities, and that's not even mentioning the fact that there are already two other bullshit wars this country's involved in. There are plenty of terrible people we rely on that we wouldn't want to piss off.
And I was totally suggesting CIA assassins. It worked in Cuba, right?
