The Un-dictator?

Kim Jong-Un is in trouble.

A defector reports  that the ruling class is getting fed up with the North Korean dictator, and grumbling has broken out. Could the unthinkable happen, and the baby dictator be replaced?

Whoever comes next probably won't be any better. And having come up through the ranks in one of the most bloodthirsty regimes on the planet he might well end up being more of a problem.

Instability in what is already the most unstable nuclear power in the world isn't exactly good news. This is not the time to have Donald Trump in the White House. I wouldn't be very surprised if his "solution" to the problem of North Korea was to build a wall around Asia.
