I'm getting a little perturbed by this article though. If there are elements both within South Korea and outside who seek to assassinate Kim Il Sung and then later Kim Jong Il, wouldn't that fact alone would hamper diplomatic talks and the peace process towards unification?
Yeah, I think so. Some people of the right wing in south korea still claim to kill or assasinate Kim Jung Il. I think that is very dangerous idea. Eliminating Kim Jung Il can cause a really tremendous disorder in both of korea and east of asia. Rapid collapse of north korea is NOT a solution of the unification. Every aspects of north korea (including economy, politics, social state and etc) can't catch up with south korea's. The cost and effort of the unification in this way would be more than 20 times than Germany's case.
well...i think my post is not suitable in this thread and related with IYSS. Sorry for that. I think moderators(always thank you for your care.. can move this to more suitable board. suitable board.

I agree with kinoeugene on this one.
A power struggle with disastrous implications may result if Kim Jong Il were to be assassinated. Particularly if N. Korea's nuclear (or NUCULAR - as our president would say) capability is more advanced than we are currently aware.
