NK 4.0 ? KIM Jon-il's latest son is only 7

An ailing dictatorship, a corrupt regime artificially maintained by a military mafia, no respect of human rights whatsoever, and now a seventh kid from a fourth wife (Kim OK)*... KIM Jong-il seems to be competing with old style Arab dictators.

But North Korea is neither a Middle Eastern nation, nor even Tunisia or Egypt. And if the internet ban technically prevents a 2.0 revolution in Korea, any uprising would probably trigger a more direct intervention by China. Maybe not as radical as the 2009 repression in Iran, but pervasive containment would remain the general concept.
