There's -- Fox News -- I'm Geraldo Rivera Kim Jong-Il that North Korean dictator as you have been hearing on Fox News is dead.
What that says about North Korea where it goes the secession and all the rest of -- -- really problematic North Korea.
-- gentlemen as you know -- nuclear armed country we're fortunate that my colleague Greg Palkot.
Was in North Korea and was now far away from the dictator and -- I'd say about fifty yards last year her own dough and this is this is big stuff -- junk -- has been running back Mike.
We know with an iron -- -- people are -- the country is is dying and all all the same time they're developing a nuclear programs nuclear missile programs what have you it's a pariah nation and the people are struggling.
A year ago we were there we were a rare western media out of the parade grounds seeing up close Kim Jong -- And his -- the error proud again.
-- there on the reviewing stand it was clear that because of the illnesses because of that the real problems that Kim -- -- has within -- -- he was getting his -- ready and step by step he was moving up but but his son is young and so it is not just the sun it is everybody that is around him minister very important.
We thought it was going to be years in the grooming process for the for the -- it could still be because -- supported by the by the Politburo there but it's a significant move and the west taxes see this as a a possibility either for.
More problems more chaos more pulling back by the military that holds all believers there.
Or perhaps some kind of -- opportunity for a new start with North Korea which -- the Obama administration has been struggling with right now -- although.
Well it's a country that's been extremely difficult to deal with.
You know I made reference to Malick is government -- Iraq this is there's a piece a cake compared to to North Korea KT McFarland our.
Our wonderful security analyst is with Harris Faulkner in New York.
-- do you think that it is possible that this son to prove he is a -- show to prove that he is up to the task of taking over that dictatorship.
Will do something like shell.
The North Korean islands that he's been doing try to capture more the South -- -- captures some of those South Korean vessels really start some real trouble case.
I think it's very likely in fact he.
To the military leaders of North Korea he went along with what they wanted to do they've -- about South Korean thought they shelled an island.
The South Koreans didn't respond to that now the submarines have said since that if there is another -- They will respond and they have to do so politically they -- under a lot of criticism.
In south -- for not doing it but I think you're actually right Harada it is very likely at this young man.
He's inexperienced he didn't have years to be groomed for the job.
He doesn't have a military background.
And then and the North Korean military has run the place for generations.
And decades so he's gonna have to do something to show he's up to the job my guess is.
He might precipitate a crisis.
You know along those lines -- rolled out it'll just allow me this is just crossing now the Associated Press wires the South Korean military is declaring an emergency alert.
Following the death of Kim Jong -- so this is right along the lines of we're viewing -- -- talking about a reaction there in South Korea.
Yeah I think it's very likely that and that the tensions there will escalate.
As this man's -- -- -- as the heir parent tries to solidify his position with the military or.
Some of the people in the military some of the generals decide.
That they don't growing need this young man to run things.
General Jeffrey Buchanan narrow our spokesman of US forces here in -- -- has been with some exercises.
-- South Koreans.
How problematic is the death of this dictator general do you believe.
Well certainly it as Greg mentioned a couple minutes ago me it's a it's a series of opportunities -- can go one way or the other.
But lots of concern.
And understand why why everybody is is concerned about what might happen good or bad right now.
We fought a bloody and inconclusive conflict there are wouldn't it be bitter irony if we had to move.
All of this gear.
Into the Pacific well you know.
Military we sandbox for what we need to do these these troops on this have been doing an incredible job -- last eight and a half years.
That's what we do we we serve our country.
Well you know we take solace in that although this situation because it is a nuclear armed country.
You know we cannot understate the significance of that and unstable North Korea.
We know that they are starving we know the chaos of the people of North Korea.
But the fact that you have a young.
And energetic leader is.
Is something that we worry he jumps the wrong way rather than -- prudence to something that is up provocative.
