FRENCH DOCTOR confirms that Kim Jong-il was really il:
The North Korean leader Kim Jong-il had a stroke in August but appears to be better, according to a French doctor who has treated him.

The doctor, François-Xavier Roux, told Le Figaro, the French daily: “Kim Jong-il suffered a stroke but did not undergo an operation. He is now better.”

Dr. Roux, a Paris-based neurosurgeon, added: “The photos that have just been published seem recent and authentic to me. I have the impression that he is in charge in North Korea. I can’t say more because of medical confidentiality and state secrecy.”
