Last quote by Michael Madden

It shows that her portfolio and writ is far more substantive than previously believed and it is a further consolidation of the Kim family's power. Ri can now be safely identified as one of North Korea's top policy makers. Even if he has informal or off the record meetings, Ri's interlocutors can be assured that whatever proposals they proffer will be taken directly to the top.feedback

Kim Jong Il was a very good father to his kids when they were young. Not when they were teenagers. She took interest in the palace intrigue and the games that went on with the elite.

He's not so nice to the leaders around him.feedback

The SPA gatherings completely undercut any analysis or prognostications that the country is going to collapse. If they failed to convene an SPA session, that would be an indication that there is a fundamental problem among DPRK elites.

If he didn't feel secure, then he wouldn't allow these images to be disseminated - he would need to appear distant and cold.feedback
