No guarantee that things will change, but it could at least maintain the relative stability of the regime.

1. Can't think of any nation ruled by three successive dictators/strong men. Could this Swiss educated young man pull it off? We hear the real strong man is the late Kim II's sister's husband. But he would have set up a system supported by the Marshals of the state to ensure his blood line continues.

2. Although young Kim III has had some concentrated dose of training and briefing. N Korean are a brain-washed people who will believe anything put out by the state media. That can work for Kim III, and can also work against him if he looses grip.

3. If any external source can have any say in affairs of DPRK, it is PRC. But this is a truly hermit kingdom, a forbidden land of shadows only. We have to wait. Wait till the funeral at least. Interestingly, that too has been kept off limit to outsiders.

I am not sure that any one makes platform shoes big enough to turn a 3 foot megalomaniac into a 6 foot procrastinator.

I guess that nothing would happen, Its just a propaganda show done by the NK army just to freak out the South koreans ...many people speak of Northkorean military power and the fact that the possess nuclear weapons but they cant use it coz it it will mean thier annihilation as well ( they nuke some1 some1 nukes em we r both dead...) and having the fact that NK is a poor country with poor people means that it cannot stand war for long periods ( and i dont mean the NK army by that i mean the nation as a whole...they will suffer alot of casualities )

As with western policy towards the North Korean Regiem was in the past, it is all once again, a waiting game.
