THAT TOP KILL WOULD WORK:

Inside the mind of North Korea's Kim Jong-il: North Korea's dictator Kim Jong-il has provoked a dangerous international crisis, yet again. Our correspondent examines the weird and worrying mind of the Dear Leader (Aidan Foster-Carter, 30 May 2010, Daily Telegraph)

In the state newspapers there is hysteria about "traitors". In Pyongyang's markets, prices have rocketed - especially for tinned meat, sugar, portable gas stoves and other goods needed to survive a war.

Last week Kim Jong-Il used an extraordinary cabinet meeting to order North Korean ministries to prepare for "all possible unforeseen circumstances, including the worst-case scenario", while the army's combat readiness was raised to the highest level.


One nuke delivered during a Politburo meeting and North Korea would be free of the bondage we've left it in for 60 years.
