Now's not the best time to have a potential succession crisis in N. Korea.

Huh. Now that I think about it, I guess I dont know what the fallout really would be and was just assuming it wouldn't be worse.

I would expect China to intervene in propping up or imposing some kind of friendly government if such a crisis became too chaotic. They don't like the possibility of a collapse because it might lead to either a flood of refugees or a united Korea that puts a U.S. ally directly on their borders.
It's the lack of stabbing that makes NoCrimesVille the kind of city I'm proud to live in.

You guys probably don't remember, but I had Kim Jong Un in my dead pool several years ago. If he dies, I think I'm entitled to 64 points.

Also, Chinese and South Korean officals, as well as American Intelligence, are all downplaying this. Most likely, he had some surgery, it went fine, and he's just recuperating.

Bingo. He'll probably end up being fine in the end. These dictators, they live forever.

I've seen articles reference the family having a history of cardiac issues. I'm wondering what type of issues, because, man, chain smoking and being obese can easily send you to an early grave, the dude was/is still just 36.  That seems well ahead of when that shit usually starts being lethal (at least to my lay-person eye).

We taking bets on this? I want to put my chips on "he's gonna be Ok" or as Ok as an obese, chain-smoking dictator of a fascist police state can be.

If he dies, I want to place a side prop-bet that the 'rona got him.
