小编摘要:希望金正日可以带领朝鲜脱离目前这种被孤立的状态吧~

 

WHAT happens next in North Korea (or more properly, if dishonestly, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea) following the death of its “dear leader”, Kim Jong Il? Frankly, Cassandra has no idea—a state of ignorance, such is the isolation of the country, which is virtually universal.

在朝鲜“亲爱领袖”金正日身后,朝鲜(或者更恰当地,但名不副实的说法——朝鲜民主主义共和国)将会出现什么局面?坦白地说,卡珊多拉专栏并不知道——由于朝鲜与世隔绝,这种茫然无知的感觉实际上相当普遍。

We should, I suppose, be alarmed. The “hermit kingdom” must surely be one of the world’s most awful countries: stricken with frequent famine and ruled by a dictatorial regime with a history of nastiness both at home and abroad (remember, for example, the 1983 attempt in Rangoon to assassinate the president of South Korea and the 1987 bomb that downed a South Korean airliner). It also, of course, has long-range missiles and nuclear bombs, though not yet, apparently, the ability to marry the two. In other words, no one—not even their Chinese allies—is anxious to mess with the North Koreans.

窃以为,我们应当有所警觉。朝鲜这一“隐士之国”是当之无愧的世界最为可怕的国家之一:常年遭受饥荒,被一个无论在国内还是国外以邪恶一以贯之的政权统治。(比方说,回想下1983年试图在仰光暗杀韩国总统,1987年韩国飞机爆炸)当然,朝鲜还拥有远程导弹和核弹,尽管到目前为止,朝鲜似乎还没有能力将这二者结合起来。换句话说,没有国家——甚至包括朝鲜的盟友中国——愿意招惹它。

Yet the paradox is that it is hard to take the North seriously. As The World in 2012 points out, Kim Il Sung, the  “great leader” who was the North’s founding father, is, in fact, immortal and will in 2012 celebrate his 100th birthday. And, as The World in 2011 pointed out, his grandson, Kim Jong Un (pictured), is a podgy, Swiss-educated lover of basketball—just the sort of man to be the North’s new dictator, and even perhaps a villain in a new James Bond movie. Whether he is the sort of man to bring his country in from the cold is, of course, far from certain.

然而认真对待朝鲜这个国家却很难,这是个悖论。正如2012世界展望指出,朝鲜缔造者——“伟大领袖”金日成实际上是永生的,将在2012年庆祝其第100个生日。并且,2011年世界展望指出,金日成的孙子金正恩(见图)是个五短身材的,有瑞士教育背景的篮球爱好者——他正是那种或将成为朝鲜新任独裁者的人选,甚至可能成为最新詹姆斯·邦德电影里的反派人物。金正恩能否将朝鲜带离目前这种被孤立的状态,远未可知。
