Kim Jong-il Fears U.S. Sanctions Could Topple Regime (Chosun ilbo, 2/12/06)

North Korean leader Kim Jong-il is worried that prolonged U.S. financial sanctions on the Stalinist country could lead to the regime’s collapse, Japan’s Kyodo News agency reported on Saturday. It said Kim expressed his concern during his meeting with Chinese President Hu Jintao in Beijing last month.

Sanctions can only be a first step though, else you punish his victims.

I take it, the most current sanction, is the straw that's breaking his back (ie. the stop printing our money sanction!).

Tell him to follow Fidel's lead and snuggle up to Hugo. At least close enough to get his hand in Hugo's pocket.
Sheesh! How hard could that be?
