In North Korea, Kim Jong-un has been promoted to “marshal.”

If you were wondering what North Korea’s “major announcement” set for noon was, that was it. Sorry to disappoint.

If you need to attach meaning to this, Aidan Foster-Carter told the WSJ:

“I think the tide has turned,” said Aidan Foster-Carter, a North Korea watcher at Leeds University in England. “Under Kim Jong Il, possibly because his own military credentials weren’t so strong, the military rose significantly. But Kim Jong Eun’s arrival has been managed by the political party.”

Personally, I think this means KJU is really, really good at Call of Duty. Which reminds me, I need to go down to Yongsan and pick up a copy of Spec Ops: The Line, which I’ve read great things about.
