Well placed sources from the Korean Friendship Association are saying that it is unlikely that Kim Jong Il is unwell.
As Algerian delegate Mr Skander Belouizdad points out:
"We must show our greatest respect for the Dear Leader who went as far as to not attend the 60th anniversary of the DPRK just to take care of the people, unlike other corrupt leaders who still manage to enjoy themselves when the people suffer. The Dear Leader comrade Kim Jong Il has always been a healthy man as can be seen in the video documentaries 'Kim Jong Il The Great Athlete' and 'Kim Jong Il The Great Dietician.'"
Watch and weep, imperialist scum!
