Now Kim Jong II has suffered a stroke?

After a Japanese "expert" announced Monday that Kim Jong II was dead, there was a news article yesterday stating that in August Kim Jong II had a stroke and my be permanently affected by it. I am not really into politics, but Kim Jong II looks about the right age to have something like that happen to him (I assume he is at least in his 70s). Today North Korea is stating that he did not have a stroke. I asked the other day if people believe he was alive. Do you think he is alive and well, alive and had a stroke, or really dead like the Japanese believe? If you believe he is dead - or at least unable to run his country - do you think that the government is just running itself and has a false figure head (sort of like the US) or that the person replacing the real Kim Jong II is making his own decisions and happens to have the same bad attitude?

Its really hard to tell if that is really true. The thing is that North Korea is good at hiding the truth and tries to bend things to hide the truth. Well it is just sad that many of the poepl there suffer unneccessarily because of his reign and tight grip in power. If those rumors are true then I think the next in line would be his family members. That is how it is in that country.
