Mini-Mao preparing for succession?

Fox News reports:

North Korean dictator Kim Jong Il has begun shifting power away from the communist party apparatus and strengthened the authority of his country’s military, veteran watchers of the Stalinist regime have told FOX News.

The 67-year-old Kim, who appeared frail but engaged at a gathering of the Supreme People’s Assembly in Pyongyang on April 9, has wielded ultimate power in his country since 1994, but is now said to be making his first serious moves to establish a clear line of succession. The April gathering was his first public appearance before a large audience since the stroke he is believed to have suffered last August.
