So, continuing the Our-Man-Solves-the-Korea-Question-Series - he has just remembered that apparently there are two Koreas - one, an unstable military-dominated state led by a clique of loons and an unstable military-dominated state led by a clique of loons on the other. Clear? Well now, Our Man understands that the higher ups in the US who worry about such things are really worried this time because the clique of loons in the South (henceforth to be referred to as The Goodies) are worried about what to do about the mass hysteria surrounding the death of the last leader who jumped off a cliff rather than face uncomfortable questions about where he got his money from. Allow Our Man to offer some free advice: Don't worry about it!
- Sure, 500,000 folk attended his funeral
- Sure, everybody reckons it was a conspiracy by the powers that be
- Sure, everybody can hardly think of anything else (including immanent Nork attack...)
But, the same was true of the mass hysteria surrounding Princess Di's death. Did it change anything? Nope. Hanky sales went up for a while, but Charlie's still in line to the throne and shagging his mistress.
Our Man just prays that Elton John doesn't re-release Candle in the Wind. Dear God, no!
