Kim Jong IL's son on fast track to leader

North Korea –  On Monday, Kim Jong Il’s son was declared the head of the ruling Worker’s Party Committee – one of the most powerful committees within the communist nation.

Last week Kim Jong Un was being hailed as the “great successor” and “great leader” of North Korea’s  massive military. Now the 20 year old Kim is expected to become the general secretary of the Worker’s party as a final step to him taking the reigns of the impoverished nation.

What is not yet known is whether Kim Jong Un will rule as his father did or be under pressure from the leaders of Korea’s massive and powerful army.
