Oct. 10, 2010 Kim Jong Un’s appearance and unveiling as the new leader of North Korea and the son of Kim Jong Ill got a great send off in a military parade to celebrate the 65th anniversary of the Korean Workers’ Party. Missiles, army tanks, artillery and armored carriers were on display for the world to see and was televised live by the state’s media which included Western journalists who were allowed to broadcast live for the event.
The celebration was held in Kim Il-Sung Square in Pyongyang’s center with thousands of soldiers, foreign diplomats from China as guests. Kim Jong Ill and his son Un flanked by two military leaders showed his prominence and clapped along with his father as the ruler in waiting while making his debut.
Kim Jon Un is slated to take over as the dictator in chief is just as ruthless as his father Kim Jong Ill who has been threatening the world with nuclear attacks and is tyrant ruler of North Korea.
The North Korean regime as powerful as it is will have a new member to their club who will be a hamster in terms of power or effectiveness.
Kim Jong Un was schooled in Switzerland, speaks English and likes things that are of the West like his father who had a taste for Hennessy, plays golf and claims to have invented the hamburger. The cognac alone cost him
$ 850,000 a year as one of his favorite Western influenced imbibements.
For years Kim Jong Ill’s threatening nuclear pursuits have threatened South Korea and the United States while boasting of their military might which has increased negative results for their population and trade sanctions.
In the last several years Kim Jong Ill has been seen as struggling with ill health and some speculate he has diabetes or some other disease and is in failing health.
