US Intelligence sources are indicating that North Korea's Kim Jong Un is "near death and in grave danger" following a cardiovascular surgery earlier this month. He was notably absent from a ceremony marking the birthday of NK's founding father and Kim’s grandfather, Kim Il Sung (which is a national holiday) on April 15th

The US is monitoring intelligence that North Korea's leader, Kim Jong Un, is in grave danger after surgery, according to a US official with direct knowledge. Kim recently missed the celebration of his grandfather's birthday on April 15, which raised speculation about his well-being. He had been seen four days before that at a government meeting.

Kim last appeared in North Korean state media on April 11. April 15 -- North Korea's most important holiday, the anniversary of the birth of the country's founding father, Kim Il Sung -- came and went without any official mention of Kim Jong Un's movements.

NBC is reporting that he is brain dead

I think his sister is next in line
Yup. Some say she would not be as um.. crazy. However, if the military leaders fear that she isn't up for the task they could stage a coup. Another group seems to think she is the mastermind of his image. A lot of what-if scenarios out there.

The NBC News reporter who tweeted the news that Kim Jong Un was brain dead has since deleted her tweet and posted a statement that they are waiting on more info.
