Kim Jong-Il Insane?

http://today.reuters.com/news/newsArticle.aspx?type=worldNews&storyID=2005-06-14T004449Z_01_N13119212_RTRIDST_0_INTERNATIONAL-KOREA-NORTH-RICE-DC.XML

Good article dealing with the Secretary Rice's comments about how she does not know if Mr. Kim is sane as she has never met the man. It also disscusses the recent news of a possible North Korean re-entry to the Six Party Talks. The end of the article explains how President Bush read a new book titled, "The Aquariums of Pyongang: Ten Years in The North Korean Gulag" by Kang Chol-Hwan. I have started reading it and it is very interesting and offers insight into the NK repressive regime. Definately recommend.

There is a strong difference between sanity and egoism, though if you believe the supposed social life and other actions of Kim, he does seem similar to the early Roman emperors like Caligula, who was certainly insane.
