After overseeing all those parades, it was just a matter of time before they made him Marshal

I guess when your co-military leader retires "due to health concerns," it just makes sense that you take over his duties and then declare yourself supreme leader.

And that's just what Kim Jong-un has done. It seems like Radiant Leader and the faction behind him (more of the latter than the former) is solidifying his position.

And maybe that's a good thing. I'm still holding out hope that the Swiss-educated, Michael Jordan-loving twentysomething is looking history straight in the eye and thinking he's rather stand up as a Gorbachev than lay down as a Ghadaffi.

More on this later...
