North Korea, things fall apart

Kim Jong Un just purged his uncle, the same uncle that many thought was the power behind the throne.  Now it seems like China was caught unaware of what was happening.  I personally would find it very interesting, gratifying to see what would happen if Kim Jong Un actually went to China.  I think it would be great if the Chinese leadership tried to keep him in line, but doubt that Kim Jong Un is willing to listen to much of anybody’s advice.  It might have been his Uncle giving advice too freely that started this.  Meet Kim Jong Un, the young dictator who spends time with Dennis Rodman, but when the Mongolian president visits doesn’t have time for him.  The same guy building Ski resorts and Amusement Parks while his people starve.  Can the center hold, and if it can’t, what kind of anarchy will we see.  It’s the curse of living in interesting times.
