NK’s Kim Jong-Il Has Pancreatic Cancer

From the Agence France-Pressee:

N.Korea’s Kim Jong-Il has pancreatic cancer: report

SEOUL (AFP) — North Korean leader Kim Jong-Il has cancer and may not live more than five years, a South Korean cable news channel has reported.

Seoul’s unification ministry said it had no information on the YTN report, which came days after Kim, 67, appeared on television looking gaunt.

The TV news channel said the leader of the isolated nuclear-armed nation was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer around the time of his suspected stroke last August.

It cited intelligence sources in Seoul and Washington.

YTN, quoting medical sources in Beijing, said Kim may not live more than five years given the high mortality rate for such a cancer and his advanced age.

Seoul’s National Intelligence Service said it could not confirm the report, which came three days after Japanese TV network TBS reported Kim is suffering from a "serious disorder" of the pancreas.

TBS reported that Kim has been resting and is being treated at his villa in the southeastern area of Wonsan by a team of specialists…

Of course the problem with this report is that Mr. Kim may feel that he has nothing to lose.

    Kaum samida and “DIE” already!!
    I hope they make a stew out of your worthless commie arse and feed it to the people you starved!!

    Excellent news! Pancreatic cancer = 95% chance dead in one year.

    Bad news = 100% chance he’ll try immortalizing himself by “hitting” the U.S. on his way out.

      My first thought—five years?
      Nope, not the way he looks now. He will be lucky to live until Christmas.
      Unless of course he dies in secret and it’s not announced for five years …

    Lucky for the wee dictator that he has socialized medicine in his country. Even if it doesn’t help him survive longer, it will be cheap and efficient.

    No chance he will seek help elsewhere….unless, of course, Cuba can free up a bed for the tiny tyrant.

  4. Gladius et Scutum says:

    Of course, the belligerent midget has named his 26 year old son, Kim Jong Un, as his successor. Just as Kim Jong Il’s father named him. When a dictaorship is handed from father to son, isn’t that called a monarchy? (Like Syria) Sounds like their trying to re-establish the old kingdom of Goguryeo.

  5. katmeredith says:

    According to the CIA World Factbook, North Korea’s life expectancy was 63.8 years in 2009.
    He’s 67 and may manage to live another 5 years with pancreatic cancer.

  6. Right of the People says:

    If he does, it’s five years too long. We can only hope like in a true monarchy the longer it goes on, the more ineffective the new rulers become. I’m sure his son is used to partying and having a good time and probably isn’t ready to assume the role with the same vigor as his demented dad.

  7. Rusty Shackleford says:

    Glad he’s sick. What? Is he still here?

  8. BatK says:

    Autopsy reports may as yet confirm he really IS a giant cockroach from the planet Jairon

  9. Reality Bytes says:

    “Jesus Christ?!” – Kim Jong Il upon arriving at Heaven’s Gate. (actually more like “Kliest”. He has trouble pronouncing “R’s” so I hear). See? Look!


    • Rusty Shackleford says:

      The path before us is vewwy qweer.

    • jobeth says:

      ummm, with that accent is there any chance ol’ Kim is related to Mr Fwrank?

      It might explain a lot of Mr Fwranks positions…(NO not THAT kind of

      And they ARE both short with little round heads.

  10. BatK says:

    I can’t help but think he sounds eerily like Eric Cartman doing a really bad “Asian” accent

  11. BatK says:

    It’s from Team America World Police

  12. canary says:

    Let’s hope Kim Jong Un doesn’t tick him off. Hopefully, his son will have a big shot of whatever MJ took to ease his pain.
