If it does lead to unrest, I just hope people will take this opportunity to leave that godforsaken place.
I thought his son would've gotten a change of heart by now and not make the same mistakes his father made? Anyway, the only possible way for WWIII to actually begin is if Germany started the whole mess yet again just like in the first two World Wars. It sorta feels like a tradition for that country to cause a war.
The North-South Korean border is overrun with land mines and a lethal electric fence - and the other border is heavily patrolled by Chinese troops who will be happy to send you straight back to a concentration camp in the Worker's Paradise.
If you're so inclined, check out a National Geographic documentary called "Inside North Korea", and hear what one of the few North Koreans who managed to escape had to go through to cross the DMZ. It's on Netflix instant stream, I believe.
This is more intense than when FDR died.
Not pictured: The gunmen threatening to shoot them if they don't weep.
So, South Korea and Japan have gone on alert as no one knows that the hell North Korea's going to do now. I heard on the news that some analysts think that there is a possibly that Kim Jong-un won't be taken as seriously as Kim Jong-il, so will have to prove himself. How he will do this is anyone's guess, but Japan and South Korea are obviously preparing for a worst case scenario. As Kim Jong-un is inexperienced, some also expect that his uncle, Chang Sung-taek will act as a regent.
Government benefits are waiting for them in South Korea, where defectors are rewarded with a resettlement sum, a place to live, a monthly payment and body guards to protect them from pesky North Korean agents. Once they leave, all that's waiting for them back in North Korea is a possibility of death and a certainty of torture.
As far as the new leader, I don't think anything will change, and I don't think there will be any immediate military action.
North Korea is no longer the Best Korea :(
“And as to you life, I reckon you are the leavings of many deaths, No doubt I have died myself ten thousand times before.”
- Kin Jong Un decides that what his father and grandfather (and Soviet Russia) did was wrong on so many levels, so he decides to take down the demilitarization zone and reunifies Korea under the South Korean government, with a little help from the United States and Europe
- He declares war on South Korea (and possibly China), and only the United States and Europe can stop his wrath (in other words, he becomes just like Adolf Hitler and Saddam Hussein)
- The people of North Korea decide that he is an idiot and decide to overthrow him

You know I think that the weeping is real, these people have become so psychologically traumatized that they truly do believe the man is some kind of God.
Anyway, apparently U.S. intel thinks the new guy may be even more psychologically disturbed than his father, like torturing small animals as a kid psychologically disturbed. The new leader of a nuclear armed nation could be as nuts as Uday Hussein.
And to the person who said people go through the DMZ, most defect through the China border, as it's less patrolled.
