UN Sanctions and a "Brilliant Comrade"...

Just found this article that talks about the UN sanctions now imposed upon North Korea. The article says that North Korea's weapons exports and financial dealings will have a higher level of scrutiny, and to top the cake off the UN has decided to allow searches of suspect cargo ships. This last sanction is probably the most controversial as North Korea has previously threatened to retaliate if any of their ships are searched. It will be interesting to see what happens. Hopefully, they respond rationally.

In the same article it talks about how Kim Jong Il's youngest son has been given the title "Brilliant Comrade" as a means to help prepare the people for his succession. Interesting title, huh?!
