Kim Jong Un still in ‘full control’ of the North Korean Military

Kim had undergone a cardiovascular surgery and may be still under treatment, Pentagon Joint Chiefs Vice Chair General John Hyten said he has nothing in the intel to confirm or deny anything along those lines.

People termed his condition to be in a “grave situation” to still take “full control” over the Military. Clearly people are already betting on Kim’s knockout! A top US general covered up on Wednesday that the US military had no indication that North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is on the verge of losing control over military. “I assume that Kim Jong Un remains fully control of the Korean nuclear force and therefore the Korean military forces,” he said. “I have no reason not to assume that.”

U.S. is “very closely” examining the situation. The U.S. reportedly has extensive contingency plans in place were Kim were to die.
President Trump, on Tuesday at the White House wished the North Korean dictator good luck with a tinge of caution. “These are reports that came out, and that we don’t know,” Trump said. “I can only say this: I wish him well.”

While his condition is unclear, a defence intelligence source told Fox News on Tuesday that the U.S. government has set up plans for when Kim eventually is gone, taking into account all the complications that could arise from his eventual death. As the reports were of Trump persuading Kim in unprecedented summits to give up his nuclear weapons.

Speculation about Kim’s health first arose thanks to his absence from the anniversary of the birthday of North Korea’s founding father and Kim’s grandfather, Kim Il Sung, on April 15.
There is prediction of a huge humanitarian crisis within North Korea that could include millions of people facing starvation and a mass exodus of North Korean refugees into China.

As the reports from The Daily NK, an online news periodical based in Seoul, said Kim was recovering from his surgery at a villa. The report also interpreted Kim has been in bad health due to heavy smoking, obesity and overwork. Though the reasons mentioned are believable but specifics on Kim’s condition remain unclear, as North Korea has been loyal to its boundaries by keeping all the news to themselves. South Korea’s Yonhap press agency , in response to the reports, said “it’s not true”.

So, who would take over should he actually pass away? Considering North Korea has been ruled by the same family for seven decades, chances are good a Kim will be involved.

The possibility of his sister, Kim Yo Jong, inheriting power is “more than 90%,” said Cheong Seong-chang, an analyst at the Sejong Institute in South Korea. She has “royal blood,” he noted, and “North Korea is like a dynasty.” As the photo us the proof with more sources, she also accompanied her brother on high-profile meetings with world leaders including US president Donald Trump, prompting some observers to consider her North Korea’s No. 2 official.

According to KCNA, Kim presided over a gathering on April 11, discussing coronavirus prevention and electing his sister as an alternate member of the political bureau of the ruling Workers’ Party.
