Video: Kim Jong-un visits N. Korea military units, receives predictable and mandatory over-reaction

The world saw the outpouring of state-mandated grief in North Korea after Kim Jong-il died last year. Now, ‘Lil Kim — the new NK leader who has threatened a “preemptive nuclear attack” on the United States — proved during a visit to military units that he inherited his father’s ability to elicit mandatory devotion like no other.

I haven’t seen a reception like this since Obama visited the set of Hardball:

If Jong-un ever figures out how to weaponize factitious devotion, his enemies are finished. It’s a welcoming committee worthy of the Sexiest Man Alive 2012™.

Here’s a still shot from the video of Kim Jong-un’s military greeting. What the hell is Rodman doing back over there?
