Speculations over Kim Jong Il's health

Fox News got a whiff of a rumor here:

North Korea will make an "important announcement" on Monday amid speculation over the health of its leader Kim Jong Il, a Japanese newspaper reported Sunday.
Whatever it means, one could hope that it would be good tidings. Hopefully, the creepy little man that resembles a toad in a toupee has gone to join his creepy dad in that mausoleum in the sky. Or, rather, down there.
Quoting unidentified sources at Japan's defense ministry, the Sankei said Tokyo had information that "there will be an important announcement on (Oct.) 20th."
Still, there could be a bit of a problem: even down there the folks who manage the hell's business may be reluctant to receive one of the biggest murderers of the century. So the stiff stinks up the surface, while the soul shuttles back and forth between the hell's bureaucrats.

Anyhow, this is not our problem, as long as we could be sure there is a stiff. Out of sheer curiosity I have looked up the Korean New site, but there was nothing worth noticing. Aside of this maybe:
The Songun politics pursued by leader Kim Jong Il is a new political mode for firmly defending the destiny of the country and the nation and socialism and successfully realizing the human cause of independence in the world in which the high-handed policy of the U.S. imperialists prevails, he said, adding that the Korean people are dynamically advancing along the road of socialism and independence holding aloft the banner of Juche, the banner of Songun true to the leadership of Kim Jong Il.
I don't have a slightest inkling of a direction to look at for an idea about what the heck the above quote means. Which gives me as good a reason to hope that it means the creep has croaked as that it means something entirely different.

Still, I pity the poor worms who'll have to... 'nuf said.
