BREAKING : KIM JONG IL'S SON ordered the attack!
[link to www.express.co.uk]

THE order to attack and sink a South Korean warship was given directly by the youngest son of North Korean dictator Kim Jong-il, according to a secret MI6 report.
The news emerged as Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao and Japanese Prime Minister Yukio Hatoyama met South Korean President Lee Myung-bak yesterday in a bid to contain mounting tension between the two countries. It is being seen as further proof that Kim Jong-il is grooming his youngest son to take over, as he fights the effects of a cerebral haemorrhage.

Succession Issues Driving North Korea, Experts Say
Quote

SEOUL, South Korea — Over the years, South Korean officials and analysts have grown accustomed to the North Korean habit of stirring up trouble, whether through missile launches or nuclear tests, and when faced with international censure lashing out with threats of retaliation and even war. Typically, it is an attention getting tactic, they say, used to win diplomatic and economic concessions.

But this time the motivation may be different.

Experts on North Korea say the latest act of belligerence from the Pyongyang regime — the apparent sinking of the South Korean warship Cheonan in March, one of the worst military provocations since the end of the 1950-53 Korean War — reflects a new force at play: the effort of the North Korean leader, Kim Jong-il, to establish his 27-year-old son as a legitimate heir to carry on the family dynasty.

“His succession to power is the factor that links all other factors when we try to explain why the North is doing what it does these days,” said Choi Jin-wook, a senior analyst at the Korea Institute for National Unification, the Seoul government’s top research organization on North Korea. “Without it, no explanation is complete or convincing.”

On the surface, the North’s ever-intensifying policy of confrontation can appear self-defeating. But it all makes sense to Mr. Kim, in his effort to groom Kim Jong-un, the youngest of his three known sons, as his successor. To do that, officials and analysts here said, the sinking of the Cheonan creates an atmosphere of crisis that serves his purposes both by rallying public support and winning the crucial backing of the military.

“Kim Jong-il needs to create a warlike atmosphere at home to push through with the succession of power to his son. To do that, he needs tensions and an external enemy,” said Cheon Seong-whun, another senior analyst at the Korea Institute for National Unification.

Mr. Kim himself was carefully groomed for years to succeed his late father, President Kim Il-sung, who died in 1994. In the years he was consolidating his power base, he was credited with masterminding a 1968 commando attack on the South Korean presidential palace in Seoul and the 1976 “axe murder” of two American military officers at the border village of Panmunjom, Mr. Baek said.

Also in 1968, North Korea captured an American naval intelligence ship, the Pueblo, holding 82 hostages for nearly a year, while its commandos attacked remote South Korean villages and fought a guerrilla war with the South Korean military for two months.

But this latest succession has been thrust upon the Kim’s prematurely, following the Kim Jong-il’s reported stroke in 2008 and subsequent health problems, which have been said to include kidney disease. While he was healthy enough to visit China earlier this month, questions persist over how long the 68-year-old leader can remain in power.

The next step for Kim Jong-un is to make his official public debut, but that has been complicated by his lack of major achievements, analysts said.

“Planning and ordering a successful naval attack in a disputed sea border with the South boosts Kim Jong-un’s credentials as a ruthless leader who can command the military,” said Baek Seung-joo, a top North Korea specialist at the Korea Institute for Defense Analyses. “Pulling off a daring provocation to win a military charisma was the rite of passage Kim Jong-il himself went through as he was consolidating power as his father’s heir.”

Of course, the succession issue is not the only problem facing Kim Jong-il. His trademark policy of building a “strong and prosperous nation” was called into question when his navy lost a humiliating skirmish against the South last November. His government’s recent attempt to arrest inflation and drive out the black market through a drastic revaluation of the North Korean currency triggered more inflation and a broad wave of popular discontent.

Meanwhile, Seoul refused to offer economic incentives until North Korea gave up its nuclear weapons program.

Facing the succession issue and the rising internal and external pressures, it is not all that surprising that Mr. Kim would resort to his usual tactic and ratchet up confrontation with the outside world, Mr. Cheon said. Its propaganda machine uses international condemnation to strengthen internal solidarity, whip up a war fever, and justify Mr. Kim’s near-absolute grip on power.

The Pyongyang regime is now telling its people that the United States and South Korea fabricated the Cheonan incident as a Korean version of the “Gulf of Tonkin,” a battle that Washington vastly overstated to justify expanding the Vietnam War. Huge outdoor rallies are being mobilized in the North, according to North Korea Intellectuals Solidarity, a Web site run by defectors from the North, which sited sources inside the isolated country.

Last week, O Kuk-ryol, a top military general, delivered Mr. Kim’s order to the military and reserve forces to be ready for combat through a cable radio network that reaches every North Korean house, said the defectors’ Web site.

But Mr. Kim’s most concerted efforts seem to be directed to the military, the critical power base for his son. Despite United Nations sanctions that ban exports of luxury goods to the North, Mr. Kim is belived to have smuggled in fancy foreign cars to hand out to loyal military generals, and in April 100 senior officers received promotions. The regime secretly awarded a “hero’s title” to six crewmen of the mini-submarine that sank the Cheonan, said Ha Tae-keung, head of Open Radio for North Korea, a Web site based in Seoul that collects news from informants inside the North.

Korean experts say his tactics seems to be succeeding. “There seems to be a vicious, almost self-destructive, competition going on among the North Korean military elite to pledge allegiance to the young leader,” he said. “I think the son is firmly in place. He was in charge in Pyongyang when his father and his top aides were all in China.”
