The K-blogs are all abuzz with the release of new old pictures of Dear Leader Kim Jong-il. Are these pictures real? Were they taken recently or several months ago? What clues do they give us about KJI's health?
Frankly, I think there's a whole Department of Messing With People's Heads somewhere in the North Korea politburo. They release these pictures out of chronological order, taken in random places, with people who are completely unknown to the West, and then they watch the media and "experts" go apesh¡t over figuring out what it means.
