"Well... Looks like he was a lot more il..."

"Than anyone thought."

Anyone can have mentally ill children. Prick.

The US has oppressed much more people than North Korea ever has. Wake up.

Why are you taking him seriously? XD

Anyway, I hope good comes out of his death, and the world can be a little more at peace.

It may not actually all be staged. I'm sure it's encouraged, but there is a strong belief amongst many DPRK residents that Kim is some kind of benevolent leader. It's screwed up, but hey, you'd probably believe it somewhat too if it's all you were ever taught.

Very much this. For example, I don't think there's a single American(Western?)-born and raised citizen, for instance, that doesn't consider Mao ZeDong a villain, outside of maybe some very history-literate people, and even then. Yet among Chinese and even amongst some Taiwanese he is very often seen as a mixed-bag figure or even a heroic one. We're pretty quick to label this as some sort of cultural brainwashing without taking into consideration that we are capable of being subject to the very same thing.

thoren's statement is still a bunch of doodoo though

Regardless of what anyone says, being "happy" that Kim Jong-il is dead is silly as hell.

What's silly as hell is that you have access to the internet, video games to play, food to eat, and thus have a much more privileged life than most of the world, thus allowing you the elbow room for your self-righteousness.  I know cartoons and JRPGs have taught you that death is terrible and stuff, but when victims have had their entire extended family put into concentration camps and/or executed for the slightest infraction and a few have beaten the odds and escaped from that shithole of a country where stealing food isn't even an option because there's barely any food to steal as just another result of Kim Jong Il's failed leadership, to say that being happy he is dead is silly as hell is utterly ridiculous.

How bad the USA has been in the past or is currently in the present has no bearing on the matter.  His successor could be just as bad and nothing may change there, but the world has one less toolbag and there's plenty of reasons some may be happy about it.

I read that as "Really?  I find that's more me after finishing the game on the math page," and I laughed.

It's a good thing Kim's son had a western education, or else he might not love the USA.

We better hope that Kim Jong Un isn't as competent as someone else who did, way back when.

His uncle and the military is likely going to take over and make him a figurehead or puppet of sorts.  Not saying they're better, but that its likely.
