NORTH KOREA WANTS TO URGENTLY RESTART MULTILATERAL NUKE TALKS

BREAKING NEWS FROM "REUTERS" -

"By Jack Kim / SEOUL (Reuters) - North Korea wants urgently to restart six-party talks on its nuclear programs... [...] North and South Korea, the United States, Japan, Russia and China have met for three inconclusive rounds of the talks but a fourth round set for September did not materialize. Analysts said Pyongyang wanted to see the outcome of the U.S. election before resuming talks. [...] ...reports surfaced last week that some portraits of North Korean leader Kim Jong-il had been removed in the secretive communist state, triggering speculation that his grip on power may be slipping. North Korea experts said the move was likely Kim's own attempt to project a more rounded image of his leadership. Rumors circulated in currency and stock markets in Seoul and Tokyo early on Thursday that Kim had been shot dead."

Maybe Kim Jong Il is not dead; maybe he's only "RONERY!"? STAY TUNED...

UPDATE: YAHOO / AFP - North Koreans are no longer wearing Kim Jong Il badges, but only badges with his father's likeness (the late Kim Il Sung). This might be as significant as the disappearing pictures... [Hmm... when confronted about this, will the North Koreans reply, "Badges!? We don't need no steenking badges!" Heh.]
