North Korea’s pot-bellied communist leader Kim Jong-il failed to appear at a parade on Tuesday to mark the 60th anniversary of the country’s founding.
UPDATE: Kim Jon Il fired his two-stage rocket on April 5. Look out California.
Slight of hand. What does President Obama say about it? The U.S. and Russia will work on reducing each others nuclear stockpiles. So? The issue is Kim Jon-iL’s rocket and nuclear weapons program.
North Korean leader Kim Jong Il is more impaired from the stroke he apparently suffered last month than reports from the region suggest, and the United States and China are holding talks about what to do if the government in Pyongyang collapses, FOX News has reported.
A senior Bush administration official says that although Kim may not be close to death, the U.S. does not accept reports from South Korea that he’s on his way to a rapid recovery.
The official told FOX News the United States is naturally engaging the Chinese about what to do if there is ensuing instability in North Korea.

Friends of Kim, including pot-bellied Hugo Chavez, hate-filled President Ahmadinejad of Iran, and the Castro brothers are on the phone with North Korea’s embassy, I’m sure.
Now is the time for first George Bush, then John McCain and Sarah Palin to help North Korea become free. Another wall comes down. What does Obama have to say?
Here is my stab at Obama’s quote to come.
“Let me say that I am not going to speculate on the health of a world leader… Yes, in my campaign statements, I said I would meet with President Kim Jong-iL, Hugo Chavez and Ahmadinejad. I’m staying by that promise…”
