The article discusses issues related to North Korean leader Kim Jong-Il's effort to transfer power to his son. Andrew Scobell, a professor at the Strategic Studies Institute of the U.S. Army War College, said the succession issue would determine the fate of the communist regime. He predicted that it will fail due to exhaustion at all levels of society. Many analysts in Seoul say Kim's second son, Jong-Chol, is most likely to succeed his father in power. According to intelligence officials in Seoul last week, some North Korean officials were seen wearing lapel pins depicting Kim Jong-Chol.
