Who else thinks that Kim Jong Il is an idiot?
What the heck is that guy doing? He's crazy! He's testing missiles (long range too) without the UN giving them permission and everyone is telling him not too yet he does it anyway. Don't you think it's a little crazy to go against the UN when one- you're country has no friends and no one understands you and two- your saying your going to attack the U.S if they attack you! YA! And I can run a Ferrari into a brick wall at full speed and survive ;). SSSSUUUUUUUUUURRRRRRRRREEEEEEE. War is a retarted excuse and people die for no good reason. They shouldn't be firing missiles, especially when the rest of the world hates them.

Let's REALLY be clear. Unless you have met Kim Jong Il, have travelled in North Korea, work for an intelligence agency on the Korea desk, or have other REAL experience, any opinion you have on KJI is based on propaganda. Learn to think clearly.
Your average "Fox News Poll" on any topic is not measuring TRUTH, it is simply a way of measuring the success rate of a particular propaganda campaign. Do you want to win the war on your mind?
Judging by many of the responses here, I'd say most of you are mindless sheep. I know it's easier to let your government, media, and educational establishment do the thinking for you. But for those FEW who crave true knowledge of the world we live in, you must come to understand that The Matrix (as a concept), is not far from the truth.
Here's an example illustrating that the questioner is a weak-thinker:
"They shouldn't be firing missiles, especially when the rest of the world hates them."
This statement is illogical on several fronts:
1) IF the rest of the world hates you, test firing missles and developing a national defense is something a SANE leader would do. Ever heard of self-preservation?
2) IF you shouldn't test-fire missles when the "rest of the world hates you", then I suppose by that logic the US should stop test-firing missles.
"The Matrix is a system, Neo. That system is our enemy. But when you're inside, you look around, what do you see? Businessmen, teachers, lawyers, carpenters. The very minds of the people we are trying to save. But until we do, these people are still a part of that system and that makes them our enemy. You have to understand, most of these people are not ready to be unplugged. And many of them are so inured, so hopelessly dependent on the system, that they will fight to protect it." -Morpheus

He is probably smarter than you think. His country is in economic ruin. It cannot get any worse for his people. Meanwhile the economy of South Korea flourishes with trade with the US. Now he does this (the missles) to get everyone's attention. He's got it. Now the countries of the world come together and give him money and technology if he agrees to stop. To him in a Worst Case Scenario the US invades, wins, and builds him a new country. It's a win, win, win situation for him. Think about it!

lets be clear, I think he's a 2 bit thug that needs to be taught a lesson in getting along in this world.
with that said the UN can kiss my a_ss they have no authority to tell any country what they can or can not do!
The un is a useless bunch that has not achieved a single Good result in their 60 years of existence!

It is sad but true that most of the world is populated by morons, and the UN mirrors that truth.
Kim Jong Il has what is called a Napoleon complex, because he is so short and his country (and penis) so tiny.

Unfortunately, I do not believe he is an idiot
I do believe he is incredibly dangerous and he is mentally ill
I think he has a huge inferiority complex that drives him near insanity
This man might launch a nuke at the USA!!!!

Nope, he desires to kill the U. S. and take over the global, in simple terms by using actuality he's so lots extra useful. Or so he thinks. situation is, there's a pair million Koreans who've been brainwashed into believing him, which makes him an truly deadly probability to global Peace.......:-(

Everyone thinks he is an idiot except one person... Kim Jong himself... the problem is all those around him that think he is an idiot are also idiots, thus nothing happens and he stays in power...

Their missiles are junk and couldn't hit us if they wanted to. Not even close. Is he an idiot? Who cares.

And as David Letterman reminds us, don't forget about his brother, Menta Lee Il.
