This company owned banks and other legitimate businesses around the world including Ginseng Exporters Seafood Fisheries and gold mines. Second Darker structure was the illicit projects division which oversaw arms, dealing drug smuggling and massive counterfeiting operations. Division thirty nine was responsible for heroin and methamphetamine trafficking that netted five hundred million dollars a year for Kim Jong Il. Somewhere between ten and seventeen thousand acres of farmland in North, Korea is dedicated to poppy fields, the origin plant of opium and Heroin Time magazine estimated in two thousand, three, the street value of north. Korea's heroin in Japan alone was as high as three hundred million dollars. The evidence of this operation is the North Korean. Cells who have been arrested with wholesale quantities of drugs in over a dozen countries, one rumor even suggests that drug dealing is the primary source of the DPRK embassy budgets. The, division employed abundant supply of farmers who gathered mushrooms, poppies and ginger. They also mind gold and transported the products from each region to the North Korean ports shipping. One defector, a former truck driver who delivered refined heroin to the docks, spoke to Time magazine after his flight across the border, he said. We never asked questions. We thought we were showing our loyalty to Kim Jong Il. We thought he would use the money to improve our lives. But while his people were demonstrating their loyalty. Kim Jong Il was only concerned with augmenting his own fortunes, and only loyalty was to his father and himself. The illegal income from division thirty nine allowed him to continue his party's and lavish lifestyle, even while his people work hours in the fields and languished in the Gulags, though Kim Jong. Il was living the high life in a supposedly communist country by the late nineteen eighties. The rest of the communist experiment was in shambles. The guiding Red Star of Communism, the Soviet Union was in rapid decline and to make matters worse. Kim Il Sung's health was failing. With a weakened leader in the end of Soviet support. The, future of North Korea was in serious jeopardy. Coming up North Korea emerges alone after the global collapse of communism now back to the story. By nineteen ninety-one, North Korea's aging great leader Kim il-sung was preparing for chaos, his greatest ally. The Soviet Union was dissolving into a series of fractured violent revolutions. One of the Communist leaders Nikolai Ceaucescu Romania had even been executed by partisans. Like the Soviet Union, North Korea's brand of communism had been rooted in Stalinism. Now, the idea seem defunct after the Soviet collapse. To reaffirm the country's commitment to Stalinism, Kim Il soon called attention to his national ideology of self, reliance or Juche. And in Nineteen, ninety-one self reliance meant self-defense North Korea had lost its strongest ally in the US are now. They had no protection outside their own borders. Fearing his enemies would take the opportunity to strike. Kim Il Sung tasked his son Kim Jong Il with assembling the strongest army on the planet.

"At all. Radio and television we're still the primary sources of information and all broadcasts were government. Controlled radios were programmed to only receive the sanction frequencies, and just in case anyone got hold of their own radio scanner signal jammers played white noise on other frequencies to block any foreign transmissions with no news of the outside world North Koreans had no comparisons to judge their on circumstances. They only knew what Kim. Jong Il. Told them of course Kim Jong. Il once again exempted himself from this standard. He set for his own people. Foreign diplomats often commented on how knowledgeable he was about current affairs, foreign policies and global markets especially in South Korea. Rumors held that he received international newspapers and Internet as well as very frequent reports from north, Korea's few embassies overseas. The extent of his knowledge became evident during an almost month-long train tour through Russia in two thousand and one. Since the fall of the Soviet Union, the relationship between Russia and North Korea had weakened to build better ties with his now democratic ally Kim. Jong Il decided to make the long trans-siberian train ride to meet Vladimir Putin. The train was also necessary because he refused to travel by aircraft, which he claimed was due to security reasons, but in fact was rooted in deep seated fear of flying instead all of his international visits, which were almost exclusively to China and former, Soviet nations were taken on a personal armored train. or rather six of them with a total of ninety railcars South Korean intelligence reported that Kim Jong Il always traveled with a retinue of three complete. Even, within North Korea's borders. The first trains scope the tracks ahead for safety and clearance bringing up the rear was another train filled with security personnel and Kim Jong Il's entourage of generals and personal servants, the armored train carrying Kim Jong Il himself travelled between the other two. His rail cars were equipped with state of the art communications gear and lavish comforts, including a small movie theater worthy of the film aficionado during his Russian tour. Tour Kim Jong Il was accompanied by Constantin Pulikovsky a special representative of President Putin. Pool Kofsky said that Kim Jong Il had a powerful aura and his questions clearly indicated that he knew virtually everything about the situation in Russia when they reached Moscow Putin invited Kim Jong Il to his personal apartment in the Kremlin for lunch. It was a spur of the moment invitation that had lasting ramifications for their relationship. Pulikovsky said it was a simple home-cooked meal. Before then Kim had seemed reluctant to show emotion after lunch with Bhuttan he was more open, trusting and genial. Putin's supposedly liked Kim. Jong Il, a great deal and found him humorous and educated the to got along famously. Kim Jong Il even said if people act like diplomats are with me, I also become a diplomat Putin was honest with me, and I baird my soul to him. This was a strange development for such an idiot leader. His two thousand, one Russia visit revealed how lonely his life must have been as dictator. Even though he was surrounded by an enormous entourage, he was without any real emotional connection Kim Jong Il new. The adoration of his people was false Shin Sang Oak, the kidnapped South Korean movie director, told the story about visiting a North Korean movie studio one day with Kim Jong, Il, a group of screaming women emerged from one of the movie sets and waved at the Dear Leader. While waving back Kim Jong Il turned to Shin and said. It's fake. Shin remembered a distinct look of embarrassment on the dictator's face. He seemed to know the director could see through performance on another occasion Kim. Jong Il was watching television with his family. When a propaganda message appeared featuring smiling happy children, he lamented how artificial their smiles looked, he said if I tell them to tone down the artificiality, they will go completely in the opposite direction and find the most dirty children in rags. Kim Jong. Il was caught in a dilemma of his own creation between the truth of his country and the narrative. He'd written for it. Even he wasn't fooled by his own propaganda. The truth was that North Korea was slipping farther and farther behind the rest of the world, but while his country slowly rotted Kim Jong Il didn't miss an opportunity to enrich himself with outside investments. When the South Korean conglomerate Hyundai approached him about creating a free economic zone in North Korea's territory, he jumped at the chance the. Would bring more money into Kim Jong Il's treasury, which meant more cash at his disposal to that end the avowed communist dictator could work with a capitalist pigs. He vilified, but his people knew little of the southern economy, including the massive wealth of Hyundai, which meant they also didn't know the extent to which Kim. Jong Il was investing with his sworn enemy. Enemies are not Kim Jong Il still maintained relations with his neighbors. Despite all the national commitment to self reliance, the country couldn't survive without imports mostly from China and South Korea. Kim Jong Il's propaganda downplayed the national reliance on foreign trade. One example was the national power grid which was supplied by a series of generator plants. Most of the parts were manufactured and purchased overseas, but shipped into North Korea unassembled, so they could be completed with locally made materials this way. Kim Jong Il could claim North Korea's power was wholly self sufficient. The truth was North Korea even have the resources to keep the power plants running..

Today we're exploring the nearly twenty year reign of Kim Jong Il the second of the Kim Dynasty last week we followed Kim Jong Il's upbringing and development as a dictator before he officially succeeded his father. Next week we'll continue our series with a look at Kim Jong Il's successor. His son Kim Jong Hoon long before the attack on the Shonen in two thousand ten Kim Jong Il was flexing his military might to the world when he officially took control of North Korea after his father's death in Nineteen ninety-four Kim Jong Il's set out to build a completely militarized society to maintain the strength of his new dictatorship. He had to be seen as the powerful leader. He had been handed the keys to the kingdom so to speak by his father but Kim Il soon had been a hero who repelled the Japanese and held off the Americans during the Korean War. His son had no war to heroically command. And no foreign invader to repel so. He made one up his propaganda focused mainly on the constant fictional threat posed by South Korea and the US but beyond those two old enemies. Kim Jong Il portrayed the whole world enemy and to sell the narrative. He made some updates to his father's original concept of Jucci or National Self Reliance Kim Jong Il used his propaganda machine to convince the people that their self reliance started with self defense and at the time he took over. There were two key obstacles to achieving this. The first was the decline of communism in the region. North Korea for all its propaganda to the contrary had always relied on Soviet supplies from manufacturing materials to weapons. The USSR had been north. Korea's primary trade partner after the Soviet Union fell in Nineteen ninety-one North Korea was forced to turn China the only other communist friendly government in the region however China was not nearly as willing to trade by the early nineteen nineties. North Korea's infrastructure was crumbling from the lack of imported materials. The second obstacle to self reliance was a terrible famine that struck North Korea in Nineteen Ninety. Four right as Kim. Jong Il was taking power poor planning and farming tactics had led to massive soil erosion on the farms in the northern mountains. In nineteen ninety-five. The region was inundated with rain washing away. The soil and crops the communal farms missed several harvests and the entire country suffered from food shortages between the famine and the lack of trade Kim Jong Il had his hands full but he stubbornly refused to change the script. His family had been writing for decades instead. He ignored the hunger spreading through the country and doubled down on his plan. For militarization. Conscription was made mandatory for all teenage males. Kim Jong Il deployed nearly seventy percent of his army along the demilitarized zone bordering South Korea for the record South Korea had displayed no aggression in decades. Their military had been supported by the United States since the days of the Korean War but the American presence along the DMZ was in fact decreasing. South Korea was in no way preparing for war in an ironic similarity to its communist neighbour. South Korea had also turned inward in the decade since the war but the south had chosen to invest in structure and economic developments instead of a military buildup by the nineteen nineties. Their economy was booming. Thanks to technology exports and they had better things to do with their GDP than attack the north. But Kim Jong. Il's propaganda continued to paint a combined. American and South Korean invasion as the greatest danger to North Koreans that narrative fed into his policies of conscription and deployment to the southern border in effect Jong Il was pulling a simple sleight of hand distracting the people with a warmongering panic while he consolidated his power. This is a classic tactic of strong men and dictators. Keep the population afraid of out side threats and they'll avoid examining the massive domestic issues that the dictator is unable or unwilling to address like rampant starvation. The North Korean government sent out propaganda encouraging citizens to have only two meals a day then government. Food shipments to the mountain villages in. The North quietly stopped Kim Jong Il still publicly maintained that nothing was wrong with the food supply in North Korea. Meanwhile starved corpses were literally lying in the streets. But in September nineteen ninety-five Kim Jong Il swallowed his pride and made an international appeal for help. He told his diplomats to quietly inform other governments and aid organizations of the famine. This was an incredible move by the dictator who was staunchly isolationist. It went directly against the narrative of North Korea's self-reliance instead Kim Jong Il was turning to his enemies for help a risky bid that could be seen as weakness if his citizens found out which made many governments suspicious. He found few nations willing to send aid. Workers and food shipments without proof that the so called famine wasn't a scam. So United Nations commissioned a survey of the country's food supplies and what they found was shocking North Korean farms could only meet about half of the required demand for the population. North Korea was decidedly. Not Self reliant. In addition to the United Nations several non-government organizations or NGOs set up operations in Pyongyang to bring in emergency food supplies. It didn't take long for them to come up against Kim Jong Il's massive propaganda machine when NGO workers would drive into a city with food shipments they would find that only Communist Party officials were there to receive the handouts. The normal citizens were told to stay indoors. There was no evidence of the corpses in the streets the widespread begging or the emaciated children anywhere. They had all been removed while the foreign visitors were around. It was as though Kim Jong Il believed that. If the NGO workers didn't see them they wouldn't know the horrors existed. He was myopically trying to treat the international aid workers like he treated his own people. But it didn't have the same effect the aid workers saw through his hide and seek ruse and they were equally frustrated by the blatant lies. Kim Jong Il Schilling about them. The North Korean. He's present at all times alongside. The aid workers would tell citizens that the ultimate goal of the NGOs was to undermine their communist ideals they encourage the very people receiving food to be wary of the people providing it Kim Jong Il went one step further when Japan shipped four hundred fifty thousand tonnes of grain to North Korea instead of acknowledging the aid. Shipment for what it was. His propaganda claimed that Japan was sending food as an atonement for its past colonial rule over Korea. Meanwhile much of the grain that was coming in was siphoned directly into the army supply and never reached the general population at all. South Korea. Follow Japan's example by sending another one hundred and fifty thousand tonnes of rice and grain. Kim Jong Il claimed he had connived North Korea's enemies into refilling their supplies for them. Then he used the alleged weakness South Korea had shown to justify new espionage missions against them. He dispatched submarines to sit off the southern coast and monitor. South Korean radio and naval activities. It didn't take long for something to go wrong. In Nineteen ninety-six one of Kim Jong Il submarines ran aground off the coast of South Korea when the South Korean government discovered this they responded with a brutal.

"The Kim's in the village and bring their bodies back to young Yang as proof. The rebellious officers believed that the rest of the loyal government would do anything to cover up the assassination of the Kim's so in misguided effort to ensure everyone knew the truth the officers let the word out about their plan and then the Kim skipped their mountain visit altogether. The plan collapsed and the conspirators had already outed themselves. Kim Jong Il uncovered eight of the traders and had seven of them executed. The eighth managed to escape to South Korea and live to tell the story with the traders dead or else driven from the country. The Kim family's power was secure. And by December nineteen ninety-one Kim Jong Il's ascension was nearly complete that month. He was appointed Supreme Commander of the army a role that had belonged to his father until that moment then after the final collapse of the USSR. That Year Kim Jong Il issued a formal policy statement from the government under his own name. This was another i. Every official proclamation had previously been signed by Kim Il soon. The statement was a simple reaffirmation of North Korea's commitment to communism but more than anything it was a warning sign to the international community. Kim Jong Il was establishing himself as a communist strongman. Even if he would be leading the last Stalinist regime on earth he was also demonstrating to the world who would be in charge of his father's legacy just like his father. The mythology surrounding Kim Jong Il was enshrined official North Korean Lore Tales of his alleged abilities were published in official biographies engraved on public monuments and even inserted into textbooks the domestic cult of personality that kim-il-sung had founded was now being passed onto his son and made even more ceremonious.

Kim Jong Il was supposedly a Gulf prodigy claiming that he was shot eleven holes in one on North Korea's only golf course before giving up the sport permanently the average North Korean citizen new more alleged facts about Kim Jong Il than some of their own family members. Of course a citizen wasn't likely to be thrown in a labor camp for not honoring the distant cousins birthday the Jong Il Legends. Were like a security blanket for the population. Giving them blind loyalty to a hero in anticipation of the moment when he would lead them then in July of nineteen ninety four. The moment arrived on July eighth. Kim Il Sung was staying at a villa in the mountains. Not far from one of the nation's many nuclear silos that afternoon he collapsed from a massive heart attack. Kim Jong Il who was never far from his father's side ordered an emergency. Medical team brought by helicopter. But it was too late. The Great Leader was dead. Kim Jong Il was now the de facto leader of North Korea and the last follower of Stalin's communist ideals. His mysterious rain had finally begun but so had a horrific famine as young. Il was promising to for his people just like his father. Did domestic food supplies were running out and the country was isolated from any imports by ECCONOMIC sanctions. North Korea could no longer feed itself and no amount of military might could keep the people from starvation. All Kim Jong Il had was his persona and propaganda to keep his nation from ruin. He was about to face his first true test of power..

"Released from the Labor camp after his three year sentence. Kim Jong Il watched the formerly married couples reunion with delight. Imploring them well go ahead and hug each other. Why are you just standing there? The couple hugged and the room broke into applause. Then Jong Il said all right. Stop hugging and come over here. The diminutive dictator then announced that Shin had agreed to be his official film adviser. He also announced that the former couple would have a wedding ceremony on April fifteenth. Birthday of Great Leader il-soon Choi and Shin were stunned. This was the first they heard of their remarriage then to appease Shin came assured him Mr Shin. Please forgive the dramatics. No one ever laid a hand on Madame Choi Now. I send her back to you exactly as she was we. Communists are Pure Chin. Was Alarmed at the turn of events but in that moment he had an insight into Kim. Jong Il's motivations he later explained that Jong Il thinks that anyone who lives in a capitalist country can be satisfied if they have enough money. He believed that with all the material support he was providing US. We would be happy. In North Korea the Communist Revolution Justified. Everything even kidnapping but the prevalence of this belief and of Kim Jong Il's own propaganda left. Him shockingly naive about the actual appeal of Communism Jong Il was so certain that the two captive filmmakers would embrace their noble task that he granted them up shit levels of freedom. He gave them a film budget of two Million Dollars. The freedom to travel and official. Dprk passports while they did produce the movies. Kim Jong Il wanted Choi and Shin were constantly plotting their escape finally eight years after choice kidnapping they got their chance on a trip to Europe in one thousand nine hundred eighty six. The couple slipped away from their communist bodyguards and fled to the. Us Embassy in Vienna. Kim Jong Il's grand cinematic ambition had been robbed of its to prime architects in the coming years. The escaped filmmakers revelations about the communist state brought the world more questions than answers. One of the most significant question marks surrounded their film budget and Kim Jong Il's expensive tastes. The budding director made no secret of his family's staggering wealth. But how did they amass such wealth in an ardently communist country? The source of that money went by a simple name division thirty nine. This was the section of the Communist Party that was devoted to capitalism. Nobody is certain when it was founded or the specifics of its inner workings but division thirty nine is essentially a slush fund created to support Kim Jong Il's ambitions and frivolities and he oversaw many of the operations. Personally Division thirty nine was divided into two financial structures. The I was fronted by a corporation called the day. Song Group this company owned banks and other legitimate businesses around the world including Jin Sing. Exporters Seafood Fisheries and gold minds. The second darker structure was the illicit projects. Division which oversaw arms dealing drugs smuggling and massive counterfeiting operations division thirty nine was responsible for heroin and methamphetamine trafficking. That netted five hundred million dollars a year for Kim Jong. Il somewhere between ten and seventeen thousand acres of farmland in North Korea is dedicated to poppy fields the origin plant of opium and heroin. Time magazine estimated in two thousand and three that the street value of North Korea's heroin in Japan alone was as high as three hundred million dollars. The evidence of this operation is the North Korean diplomats themselves who have been arrested with wholesale quantities of drugs in over a dozen countries. One rumor even suggests that drug dealing is the primary source of the DPRK Embassy budgets division employed an abundant supply of farmers who gathered mushrooms poppies and ginger. They also mind gold and transport the products from each region to the North Korean ports for shipping one defector a former truck driver who delivered refined heroin to the docks spoke to. Time magazine after his flight across the border. He said we never asked questions. We thought we were showing our loyalty to Kim Jong Il. We thought he would use the money to improve our lives but while his people were demonstrating their loyalty Kim Jong Il was only concerned with augmenting his own fortunes and his only loyalty was to his father and himself the illegal income from division. Thirty nine allowed him to continue his party's and lavish lifestyle even while his people work. Long hours in the fields and languished in Gulags Kim Jong Il was living the high life in a supposedly communist country by the late nineteen eighties. The rest of the communist experiment was in shambles. The guiding Red Star of Communism. The Soviet Union was in rapid decline and to make matters worse. Kim Il Sung was failing with a weakened leader in the end of Soviet support. The future of North Korea was in serious jeopardy coming up North Korea emerges alone after the global collapse of communism now back to the story by Nineteen ninety-one North Korea's aging Great Leader Kim. Il-sung was preparing chaos. His greatest ally the Soviet Union was dissolving into a series of fractured violent revolutions. One of the Communist leaders Nikolai Ceaucescu. Romania had even been executed by partisans like the Soviet Union North Korea's brand of communism had been rooted in Stalinism. Now the idea seemed defunct after the Soviet collapse to reaffirm the country's commitment to Stalinism Kim Il soon called attention to his national ideology of self reliance or Juche and in nineteen ninety. One self-reliance meant self-defense. North Korea had lost its strongest ally in the USSR. Now they had no protection outside their own borders fearing his enemies would take the opportunity to strike. Kim Il Sung task his son. Kim Jong Il with assembling the strongest army on the planet conscription became mandatory for all North Korean males between the ages of seventeen and twenty five and girls were drafted for support and maintenance positions draft. Registration took place at age. Fourteen and the next three years were devoted to basic training. Each conscript received three hundred hours of military training annually as part of the Red Guard youth program including a week long training camp in the summer. Approximately six hundred fifty thousand teenagers were in the program at any given time. Deferment from the draft was possible for medical reasons social standing college attendance or technical skills. The children of influential party members were also often excluded from the draft. Once enlisted. The young soldiers served a minimum of eleven years for men and seven years for women. North Korea quickly developed the most militarized population and the fourth largest standing army on earth. One in three North Koreans was serving as a regular or reserve member of the military and the million army reservists were supported by another five million peasant. Workers Classified as reserve red guards beyond their exorbitant manpower. The collapse of the Soviet military machine also provided plenty of weaponry and military vehicles for Kim Jong. Il's growing forces the numbers were staggering the DPRK had more than one thousand seven hundred aircraft in its air force seven hundred vessels in its navy and over six thousand six hundred tanks and armored vehicles. In terms of weaponry North Korea had eighteen thousand pieces of artillery and one thousand eight hundred cruise missiles along with countless supplies of rifles and machine guns Kim Jong Il believed the greatest threat to North Korean security was South Korea and more specifically the desire for reunification and if he believed it so did his people. The cult of personality surrounding the Kim Dynasty was stronger than ever after decades of propaganda. Kim Jong Il convince the citizens that South Korea was poised to invade along the demarcation line at any given moment he deployed over seventy percent of his forces to the DMZ although there was almost no evidence of southern aggression. While North Korea's four billion dollar annual defence budget was less than half of what South Korea spent on their military. It represented a full third of North Korea's GDP. Kim Il soon was committing every resource to national defense. Kim Jong Il was the head of that defense. The terror of the looming war reached all the way up to the highest levels of the Communist Party. But it was their own commander in chief they were most afraid of several. High ranking officers. Were worried that Kim Jong Il was itching to use the forces at his command. They believed that reunification of the peninsula. A deeply held goal for many Koreans on both sides of the demarcation line would be impossible under the trigger. Happy Kim family so in nineteen ninety one. They hatched a plan to assassinate both Kim Il. Soon and Kim Jong Il some of Kim il-sung personal guards informed the conspirators that Kim's were planning to visit their ancestors graves in a mountain village. The plan was to kill.

"Now back to the story by the Early Nineteen Seventies Kim Jong Il was experiencing a meteoric rise within the Communist Party ranks while his father was busy. Touring his Communist. Utopia on propaganda campaigns Jong Il was trusted to run the administrative side of the government on the side. Kim Jong Il still had time for other pursuits like filmmaking. A lifelong movie buff. He opened up studios to make propaganda films. He personally oversaw the production of epic Revolutionary Operas that glorified the Juche Ideology to young Il. This was more than propaganda. It was art. He even published a treatise on film. Theory called on the art of the cinema and his love for movies would morph into a different kind of love sometime in the late sixties. Kim Met a young actress named Song. Hey ream she was already famous on both sides of the Korean demarcation line but she was trapped in an unhappy marriage seeing an opportunity to improve her fortunes. She divorced her husband and started dating. Kim Jong Il Jong Il kept the affair a strict secret. The two lovers spent clandestine nights together and Jong Il began visiting the studios where. Hey Rim was filming. Almost every other day as the affair grew so did Jong Il contribution to the film world. He wrote songs in scenes for several propaganda musicals. Like a Communist. Billy wilder his love for cinema melded beautifully with his love for Song. Hey ream and a deep sensitivity was revealed in the young dictator to be soon. The affair also produced a son. Kim Jong Nam was born in Nineteen seventy-one but his existence was largely kept secret including from Kim Il soon amid the few family members who knew about the birth it once again raised questions about succession was a budding monarchy growing in North Korea as Communist revolutionaries dedicated to returning power to the workers the idea of hereditary succession was anti to their cause. Even the Soviets and Chinese communists aboard the idea for years the North Korean dictionary of political terminologies unequivocally stated that dynastic succession was a product of slave societies adopted by feudal lords. As a means to perpetuate dictatorial rule however that definition was removed in the nineteen. Seventy two edition of the North Korean dictionary. The tide was shifting among the party as kim-il-sung grew more amenable to the idea of a dynasty. He might been a Stalinist at heart but he claimed. This shift was inspired by the chaotic line of succession. In the Soviet Union after Stalin's death the power vacuum in Soviet politics led to the rise of Nikita Khrushchev. A harsh critic of Stalin. Kim Il soon had routed North Korea's formation in Stalinism and in his memoirs he noted that Khrushchev's criticisms of the former dictator. Were the moment things began to go astray. Jimmy il-sung Song believed that if a new leader did not support the legacy of his predecessor. The Revolutionary Party would weaken and collapse whoever succeeded him would need to be loyal. Not only to the Communist ideology but to him and in the early nineteen seventies there appeared to be no better candidate than Kim. Il soons loyal and active son by Nineteen seventy-three Kim Jong Il was a secretary in the Central Committee of the Communist Party. He was referred to by the North Korean media. As the party's center as though he had become the embodiment of communist ideals in the DPRK. Kim Jong Il had also fully committed to his bothers concept of giudice or national self reliance in nineteen seventy-three speech. He even went so far as to brand. The country's national ideology as Kim Il Soon Ism to honor his father as the nation's Guiding Star Jong Il ordered the construction of lavish monuments and buildings named for the Great Leader. He cemented his loyalty with constant affection and care for Kim Il. Some who is still remarkably healthy but Kim Jong Il was taking no chances with his future. He was slyly positioning himself. As his father's right-hand man and his tactics were Working Jong Il was now firmly entrenched as his father's natural successor. It was only a matter of time before the decision would be made official and announced publicly. In the meantime this secure position gave Jong Il even more freedom to pursue his favourite pastime filmmaking throughout the nineteen seventies. He tries to define himself as not just a propaganda master but as an autour. He grew so obsessed with cinematic art. That in nineteen seventy seven. He ordered the kidnapping of one of South Korea's most lauded film directors Shin Sang Oak at the time Shinn's reputation in South Korea was in tatters. He had openly complained about censorship and bribery in the government and they had retaliated by forcing the closure of his film. Studio Shins Open dissent against the cell lead Kim Jong Il to believe the director might be willing to defect to the north. But he couldn't just ask. Shins Sang Oak directly. Instead he planned to kidnap ex wife Choi and he choi was a star of South Korean cinema and having an actress like her among North Korean stable of talent would be a boon to the industry on its own and it might coerce shinto cooperate. The plan was initiated in the fall of nineteen seventy seven. When a North Korean agent visited Choi and offered her the chance of a lifetime he claimed to run a movie studio in Hong Kong and inquired of Choi would be interested in producing films. There he went one step further and offered her a script to direct which came with a hefty paycheck. Unable to resist Choi agreed to visit the studio in January nineteen seventy eight when she arrived in Hong Kong. The agent took her on a whirlwind tour of the city and introduced her to several so-called fans. It was only when the tour ended on a desolate beach that Choi realized something was wrong. A small motorboat with four men was waiting for her. They grabbed her threw her into the boat and stuck a needle in her. When Choi awoke she found herself aboard a freighter headed for the North Korean port of Nampo in her small padlocked state room. An enormous portrait of Kim il-sung stared down at her eight days. Later the freighter pulled into port and Choi was mad at the DOC by none. Other than the Great Leader's son himself Kim Jong Il the short future dictator who stood only five foot three looked up at her and offered his hand then. He invited her to join him in the long black limousine waiting nearby for the ride. Pyongyang when they reached the City Jong Il relished pointing out the notable sites and monuments choice said later Kim Jong Il was as happy as a general making triumphant entrance into the capital Jong. Il's delusions of grandeur. We're encouraged by the cult of personality prevalent in the monuments portraits and flags that adorned the buildings. Everything was about Kim Il Sung and as the leaders son Kim Jong. Il clearly had the power to do anything he wanted. Without fear of reprisal this included kidnapping Shin Sang six months later in a similar fashion to choice kidnapping agents nabbed him in Hong Kong and brought him to North Korea but unlike his ex wife Choi who had accepted her situation with sadness. Resignation Shin fought back. Kim Jong Il was forced to keep him under perpetual guard when he tried to escape. The dictator threw him in a Labor camp with Shins. Sang Oke refusing to Work Jong. Il's plan to bolster the North Korean film. Industry was failing still the DPRK film studios cranked out plenty of mediocre propaganda films which had jong-ils position in the eyes of his father and the citizens in nineteen eighty kim-il-sung finally decided to make his son's inheritance official a short announcement was made at a congress of the entire DPRK leadership. Kim Jong Il was to be promoted to the Central Committee and the Military Commission even with this announcement the dynamics within the newly established dynasty or largely unchanged. Kimmel soon was still healthy and completely involved with the day to day concerns of his government. Kim Jong Il still had a long wait before he took the communist thrown so he's simply continued with life as he knew it. Jong Il had all the resources of the nation at his disposal. He threw lavish parties complete with endless. Cognac his personal favourite during his peak years of Consumption Jong Il was spending seven hundred thousand British pounds. A year on the liquor another extravagance that other North Koreans were prohibited from enjoying nearly every Friday night in the early nineteen eighties. There was a party in Pyongyang organized by Jong Il complete with live music movies and Mahjong at one of his many villas.

Il was next in line as early as nineteen seventy four but Jong. Il himself refused to speak of succession. There was to be no talk of replacing Kim Il. Soom ever one specific. Violent example demonstrated this unspoken rule of North Korean politics. The unconfirmed narratives suggests that in the early nineteen seventies Kim Jong Il met with a high ranking Communist Party official in Pyongyang the official took the chance to flatter the Great Leader's son and suggested that he should be declared the successor for whenever his father passed on Jong. Il Sat for a moment in stunned. Silence the Party official probably believed his compliment was so flattering. It had left him speechless instead. Jong Il pulled his pistol and shot the official dead on the spot even if. This story is Apocryphal. The moral is obvious. Jong Il no discussion of anyone. Taking his father's place including himself at the time Jong Il really had no desire to take over for his father. He was already a senior government official living a spoiled life. He had endless supplies of wine and Cognac. As well as a massive collection of Western films all of which were prohibited to ordinary citizens. He was living a life of hypocrisy under his father's protection. If you're ill wanted to maintain his position and his lifestyle he needed to support his father no matter what besides Kim Jong Il was to focused on other tasks to worry about succession like building movie studios throwing lavish parties and plotting a kidnapping coming up.

After the two disagreed on Strategy Truman believed MacArthur's actions could lead to a larger conflict between the US and Soviet Union.

"Kim Il soons rise from anti-japanese freedom fighter to the leader of North Korea seems almost scripted. It's the story of practically every modern dictator as a member of the Soviet army during world. War Two Kim had taken more than a page from. Joseph Stalin's playbook and when Kim returned to Korea in one thousand nine hundred forty five. He consolidated power and support the same way. Stalin did in the Soviet Union by nationalizing resources and industry organizing an enormous national army and propagating his own cult of personality by mid nineteen forty nine. Kim Il soon had fortified North Korea into a self sufficient country with strong industrial and agricultural sectors through wide ranging reforms of the health and education systems. He'd also grown immensely popular but he wouldn't be satisfied until the entire country including South Korea was united under his rule so with the support of his counterparts in the Soviet Union and China Kim and his massive army invaded South Korea on June twenty-fifth Nineteen fifty. They stormed through the peninsula facing little resistance from the haphazard South Korean Army. At first it appeared that Kim's plan might come to fruition but after their collective victory in world war two the Soviets had snatched up territory all over Europe and the US government was not eager to see communism spread any further not a moment too late. They decided to intervene. The US mobilized a small division of around five hundred troops that had remained in Japan after World War Two on July fifth. One thousand nine hundred fifty. They attacked the North Korean forces in Osan just outside of Seoul. Unfortunately this small division was no match for the North Korean army. The American suffered one hundred and eighty casualties. Nearly half their force was killed or severely injured though the United States was able to activate additional troops. No amount of manpower could stem the march of Kim il-sung army and by September U S and South Korean forces were cornered in the small coastal city of Pusan. Kim-il-sung believed. He was on the verge of decisive victory and that within days all of the Korean Peninsula would be his but a steady flow of incoming. Us troops derailed those plans in the ensuing battle of Pusan perimeter the US Air Force was able to bomb strategic North Korean locations. Mainly Transportation Hubs Halting Kim's ability to advance supplies to the front lines and as the US began winning. Its share of small-scale battles more and more American troops arrived until US forces outnumbered the North Koreans finally by mid-september US forces had turned the tide of the war and North Korea to retreat. As their retreat began in earnest. It became clear that North Korea had only prepared for a quick victory. Not a sustained battle for one thing. They were virtually defenseless against. Us Air attacks which wiped out their heavy artillery and they didn't bother to maintain outposts behind them in case of a retreat so when they were pushed back. North Kim's troops had nowhere to rest or resupply. This lack of cashed resources left the North Korean ranks in chaos and with heavy casualties. Nearly half of Kim's forces were killed or taken as prisoners of war the few units that remained were able to retreat safely but posed absolutely no threat to the rapidly advancing. Us forces within weeks. The North Korean army had retreated far past the thirty eighth parallel all the way to a small area in the northernmost border of the country in order to survive let alone continue the fight. They would need a miracle. Luckily China's leader Mouth Zedong was ready to Throw Kim. Il Soon a lifeline on October. Eighteenth nineteen fifty mouse and two hundred and fifty thousand of his own troops into North Korea. Meanwhile Joseph Stalin sent Soviet pilots to provide air cover from our troops as they crossed the border into North Korea the battle of on Jong the first between. Us and Chinese forces occurred on October. Twenty Fifth Nineteen fifty. The hilly brush covered terrain to their advantage. Chinese forces ambushed US and South Korean troops from all sides and easily defeated an entire battalion of South Korean soldiers. The Battle of Anjan not only saved kim-il-sung from certain defeat but at once again shifted the momentum in favor of North Korea. The operation was so significant that to this day October. Twenty fifth is commemorated as war to resist America and Aid Korea Memorial Day throughout China. Now it was clear that the US would have to formulate a new strategy and while the one they chose to pursue wasn't exactly knew it was definitely effective in November. Nineteen fifty they began a large scale scorched earth bombing campaign across North Korea but unlike the previous campaign which targeted North Korean military out posts and transportation hubs. This one was designed to inflict as much damage across the region as possible. It was a strategy almost identical to the one used by. Us pilots in Japan during World War. Two they made no distinction between military and civilian targets often going after schools and hospitals. The goal was to bomb a population into submission throughout the three-year carpet bombing campaign the. Us dropped more bombs on North Korea than they did in Japan and the Pacific during World War Two. Almost every major. North Korean city was completely destroyed. U. S. forces even considered detonating atomic bombs in North Korea. But when it became clear that their scorched earth campaign was producing the desired results already. They decided nukes weren't necessary. During this time smaller scale battles continued being fought on land in and around the thirty eighth parallel the dividing line between the two Korean territories and while both sides could claim victory in certain battles non were decisive enough to shift the overall outcome.

"When we return. We'll learn how Kim's invasion of South Korea led to the Korean War and cemented his rise to authoritarian dictator. Now back to the story. By mid Nineteen forty-nine kim-il-sung had fortified North Korea into a self sufficient country with strong industrial and agricultural sectors through wide ranging reforms of health and education systems. He'd also grown immensely popular but he wouldn't be satisfied until the entire peninsula including south. Korea was united under his rule but syngman Rhee the leader of South. Korea was just as adamant about securing North Korea for himself. As a result there were many small scale. Military operations launched around the thirty eighth parallel. Ten thousand troops from the North and south died before the Korean War officially began before Kim could invade the south. He needed permission from the Soviets and the Chinese by nineteen forty nine. The Cold War between the United States and the Soviet Union was growing increasingly serious and Kim knew that one misstep could trigger world war three in March nineteen forty nine. Kim visited Moscow under the auspices of strengthening the relationship between the Soviets in North Korea which was odd considering. They were already on perfectly good terms. Kim's real agenda was gaining not only Stalin's blessing but his military support however Stalin was preoccupied with a conflict in Germany and refuse to consider Kim's invasion of the south but only a few months later to developments would cause Stalin to shift course in August nineteen forty nine the Soviet successfully detonated their first atomic bomb putting them on equal footing with their new enemy the United States meanwhile in what was now the People's Republic of China the Communist Revolution had drawn to a close and revolutionary fighter. Mounsey Dong to control the country. Naturally his communist regime had the full backing of the Soviet Union. This alliance created an enormous Communist Confederation in Eastern Europe China and North Korea and with this enormous confederation so far from the US mainland. Stalin felt confident that they could add South Korea to their ranks without much interference. Stalin knew that the US was more concerned about the spread of Communism in Europe than in Asia and was less likely to view South Korea as a priority with these auspicious factors shaping his decision in April nineteen fifty. Joseph Stalin gave Kim Il soon his support to invade South Korea. Kim then traveled to China and met with Malaysia. Deng who pledged not only moral support but thousands of troops for the invasion on June twenty-fifth nineteen fifty. The North Korean army launched. Its first assault across the thirty eighth parallel. It was a surprise attack. That sent seventy five thousand troops into South Korean territory. In addition to outnumbering South Korea almost two to one the north also boasted vastly superior firepower. This included Soviet made tanks machine guns and an air force consisting of one hundred and eighty planes South Korea. Meanwhile was in Dire Straits. They no longer had. Us FINANCIAL OR MILITARY SUPPORT. And what troops they did possess. Were poorly trained. Needless to say the North Korean army advanced with very little opposition. One day later Kim Il soon declared the war which we are forced to wage is a just war for the unification and independence of the motherland and for freedom and democracy but Kim Stalin and Mao all vastly underestimated the resolve of the United States to stop the spread of communism especially after the revolution in China. And although Harry Truman was far more concerned about losing Japan to a communist takeover then he was about Korea he knew that having a foothold next door would give the communist an insurmountable advantage. If they ever chose to invade Japan on June twenty-sixth only a day. After Kim's invasion Truman appealed to the United Nations assistance. The day after that the United Nations Security Council recommended that member states provide military and financial assistance to South Korea and wasting no time president. Truman dispatched the US. Navy and air force to engage but while the US military had emission it lacked a strategy. It also lacked bases and outposts from which to wage war acquiring. These things would take months months that they didn't have because within three days of launching his offensive. Kim Il soons army managed to advance across nearly the entire length of South Korea. The North Koreans in the South Korean army in the tiny city of Pusan on the country's southern border him held every advantage and he knew it even if the US did intervene he had the backing of the Soviet Union and as many Chinese troops as he needed. He was days away from accomplishing his lifelong goal. Creating a Single Unified Korea under his control..

"After World War. Two North Korea was far more industrial and cosmopolitan than the more rural south. It also had a much smaller population so it was not nearly as difficult to create jobs for everyone or spread the wealth under Kim. Each family was given a small parcel of land. But just enough to remain self sufficient and for people who had been at the mercy of a foreign government that forced them into hard labour. This was a monumental achievement. Now they could choose what to grow. And how much of it they wanted to consume in all. Kim gave over two point. Four million acres of land to more than seven hundred thousand farmers and their families. Not only did this give them a renewed sense of purpose. It went so far as to instill a sense of national pride it also resulted in enthusiastic support for kim-il-sung and while he united and rebuilt the country he quietly began purging. His perceived enemies anyone. He deemed a threat from intellectuals to hold overs from the Japanese occupation were either imprisoned or exiled to South Korea for the next two years as his reforms to cold. Kim followed another one of Stalin's directives assembling and training of vast army. Many of the troops were former guerrilla fighters. From Kim's days in Manchuria. But many more joined out of a sense of loyalty and duty to the country and by Nineteen Forty Eight. The ranks swelled to almost sixty thousand men by this time. It was clear to the Soviets that Kim was the right man to lead North Korea. And on September Ninth Nineteen Forty Eight. He was put in charge of what was now. The Democratic People's Republic of Korea Soviet forces left the country in his hands. This marked the first time since the Japanese occupation that part of Korea was actually under Korean rule. But for Kim. This wasn't enough. He wouldn't be satisfied until the entire country. Land below the thirty eighth parallel included was under his control and all foreign troops had been eradicated for. Kim. The timing was fortuitous. Soviet troops had already left North Korea and by June of nineteen forty nine. American troops withdrew from the south within six months the US lost virtually all connection to the country deeming it non vital to its defense interests in the Pacific at the same time in his own effort to consolidate power. The South Korean president initiated a campaign to purge the country of Communists. These developments gave him the impetus he needed for his most audacious maneuver yet. A full scale invasion of South Korea..

"Soon. Kim became a high value. Target for the Japanese appearing on wanted lists and even earning the colorful and fearsome nickname tiger a special unit of Japanese troops called the mighty unit was even assembled to kill him and while they were ultimately unsuccessful in that regard by nineteen forty. They had killed or imprisoned nearly every other Korean leader besides Kim figuring that his chances of survival were slim and that his efforts could be best utilized elsewhere he fled to the Soviet Union as a result of his communist ideology and battlefield heroics. He was welcomed into the country with open arms. Kim's flight to the Soviet Union coincided not only with the advent of World War Two in Europe but the height of the Second. Sino Japanese war almost ten years earlier in one thousand nine hundred eighty one. The Japanese invaded and seized the portion of Manchuria. And for the next decade small skirmishes erupted between the two countries around nineteen forty. The Japanese government initiated a series of far more aggressive measures than any it had previously undertaken measures that exacted a heavy toll on Korea from nineteen thirty nine to nineteen forty a Japanese enslaved millions of Native Koreans. The majority were forced into hard labor. And almost four hundred thousand of these men and women died. Meanwhile thousands of those men were forcibly conscripted into the Japanese military and hundreds of thousands of women became sex slaves or comfort women for men serving in the Japanese military. Japan DIDN'T OFFICIALLY ENTER WORLD WAR. Two until its attack on Pearl Harbor in late. Nineteen forty one but in the immediate aftermath. The Japanese army made rapid and significant gains in the Pacific theater. They were shaping up to be a formidable enemy for the allied powers including the Soviet Union. During this time Kim and his fellow surviving guerrilla fighters were being trained at a Soviet Army Camp. And just as he had as a freedom fighter. Kim thrived only two years later. He was made a captain in the army and put in charge of over one hundred troops. Though Kim and his men had hoped to do battle against their former Japanese oppressors they were instead forced to defend the Soviet Union from the German army who invaded in mid nineteen forty one during his time in the Red Army. Kim developed a keen fascination with the Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin. He particularly revered the way Stalin portrayed himself as a savior of the Soviet Union and used fear intimidation and violence to gain the loyalty of his subjects methods. That would fuel Kim's own ascendance in the future from nineteen forty one to nineteen forty. Two Japan made significant advances in China and the Pacific theater but the tide of the war quickly turned as the United States. Australia and New Zealand pushed back against the Japanese forces. Their luck finally ran out in nineteen forty five when the US dropped the atomic bomb on Hiroshima the US employed a scorched earth tactic. They decimated a major Japanese city and killed tens of thousands of civilians while simultaneously forcing the Japanese to retreat completely. Even so the Japanese refused to capitulate. It wasn't until the Soviet Army invaded Manchuria. And the allies dropped a second bomb on Nagasaki. That they finally surrendered. No one was happier to see the Japanese surrender than Kim. Il Sung not only have the US decimated and humiliated the country that had in slaved his own. It was his ideological allies. The Soviets who helped push Japan out of Korea once and for all this included many of the Japanese ex patriots who had settled in Korea throughout the early twentieth century and stolen land from Korean citizens. Meaning that for many farmers not only did their country once again belong to them. So did the land beneath their feet. However the United States and Soviet Union the two countries instrumental in driving Japan out of career would soon lay their own respective claims to the peninsula further dividing a country in desperate. Need of unity though. They didn't subjugated citizens in the manner of the Japanese. The Soviets and Americans still occupied Korea. They agreed to divide the country at the thirty eighth parallel. More or less the geographic middle and install their own. Korean led governments in each of their respective halves. The Soviets needed a native Corinne but they also needed someone they could trust and who was familiar with Soviet customs because of his years spent in the Soviet Union and his military credentials. As a freedom fighter. Kim Il Sung was the perfect choice. So the Soviets installed Kim as the chairman of the Korean Communist Party a provisional government completely under Soviet Authority chairman was more of an empty title than an actual indication of authority. Since Kim's real job was simply to carry out orders from his Soviet bosses but Kim wasn't satisfied being anyone's lackey his entire life had been devoted to ridding career of occupying forces and returning the country to his fellow citizens he began plotting away to seize power from the Americans and retake South Korea not only Koreans but for himself during his time in the Soviet Union he'd also seen firsthand the cult of personality that developed around its leader Joseph Stalin. He believed he could use those same methods. Not only as the leader of North Korea but as the leader of the entire reunified country. He had one thing working in his favor from day one. Neither the Soviets nor Americans proved very popular with Koreans in either half of the country. Many felt as though they were still living under the tyranny of the Japanese for one thing the United States failed to establish a coalition government and actually kept several of the old Japanese governors in power. Once they did. Install a leader. They chose Syngman Rhee. Who'd been living in exile in the United States on and off for the past forty years the Soviets didn't fare much better. They attempted to install a communist government which spurred a great deal of resentment from citizens who are not only anti-communist but resented not being allowed to choose their own elected officials on November twenty third nineteen forty-five in synergy North Korea. This resentment boiled over and students took to the streets to protest. The communist government much like the Japanese before the Soviets sent in their own men along with Korean forces to quell the uprising. In the process over twenty students were killed but rather than being cowed into submission others students across North Korea began their own protests fearing a full-scale revolt. The Soviets sent Kim Il Sung to synergy to repair the situation. Kim took full advantage of the opportunity to prove his skill as a mediator. Not only to Soviet bosses but to the citizens of North Korea at a citizens assembly in sinner. Ju Kim criticized the students conduct but also acknowledged that the communist party was far from perfect. He placed the blame on rogue's lurking in the Communist Party and government. Kim implored the students to trust the government and himself to further. Endear himself to the students. He cited his own past as an anti-japanese guerrilla fighter an ardent communist by all accounts. Kim Was a natural liaison diplomatic empathetic and respectful the fact that he was tall. Handsome and charming didn't hurt either. He was able to alleviate the students concerns and more than that he convinced them to work with their government toward a collective goal of unifying Korea. It was the first time he used his cult of personality to gain support. It wouldn't be the last. It was also his first test as a politician and he'd performed admirably for doing so. Kim was given a promotion. In February. Nineteen forty-six the Soviets chose him to lead the new slightly more independent government known as the Provisional People's Committee for North Korea although he was granted wide ranging authority by the Soviets. He's still had to answer to them a situation. That was becoming less and less appealing. So Kim began his own effort to consolidate power and gain the trust in support of everyone. He could not only. Would this prove to the Soviets that he could run the country himself it would also make it easier for him to gain a foothold in South Korea. When the opportunity inevitably presented itself Korea had suffered a vast amount of damage during the Japanese occupation in World War. Two Kim knew that the quickest way to his constituents hearts would be by rebuilding the country and improving the standard of living as such him barked on a campaign of building schools and hospitals and fortifying infrastructure. He also nationalized industries and legally granted complete equality to women it was a noble pursuit but hardly selfless in fact. It was straight out of the playbook of many modern dictators including Kim's hero Joseph Stalin. Kim knew this was the quickest way to gain people's trust. He also knew that these privileges could be taken away just as quickly as they were given. But Kim's most significant move was redistributing land that had been seized by the Japanese back to North Korean peasants and farmers ironically.

"To expand our supply. A lot of other equipment is badly needed right now in hospitals and clinics all over the country. You think it's time Dr Burks to start actually mandating production of these critical supplies time to start converting factories to the to the production to meet these kinds of demands. We're so fortunate with the legislation that just came out that we just on locked ninety percent more than mass than we had just two days ago. So I think we're looking and see how much of the need is met by that. And then of course honeywell has also volunteered. I've also seen reports of Construction. Workers taking their current stock to their local clinics. We put out a call to the manufacturers and to the construction workers to do that and people are responding. Others have donated mass. And so we're really looking at. What is the need now as we do all of these innovations on lock further potential Italy Saw more than six hundred deaths in the last twenty four hours alone they actually have more hospital beds per person than we do here in the United States. Are you seeing enough is enough being done right to increase hospital capacity ca? Certainly that is the potentially. Well certainly we're responding with all the resources of the federal government and I think you know the Army Corps of Engineers have been out talking to the individuals and the governor of New York. You know we're moving the Dod mercy and comfort to be available. We're looking of course at mash units we're looking at Vail ability of Va is. We're also looking at the availability of ambulatory surgical centers. Because now that we ask people to give up elective surgeries that opens up a large number of beds that are already fitted with ventilators. That can be utilized. I I have every confidence in the American people to come up with even more innovations to be able to serve individuals but in Italy. It's really important to look very specifically at the geography. They may have lots of hospital beds but the outbreak is very much concentrated in Lombardy region. That makes it then. It's only relevant. How many beds they have in that region. And that's why we're tracking this epidemic on a county by county city by city manner. Because we really have to know where the search capacity will be needed. Not only where it is. Data coming in from. Italy is really amazing because it shows and correct me. If I'm wrong Dr Burks that the viruses actually twice is deadly for men as it is for women are the cases here in the United States following that trend. Yeah we talked about that too smarting and the briefing and I'm really glad the information is getting out from those press briefings and I really WanNa thank all the ministers of health who had been providing US data from around the world and so we've been watching mortality very carefully we wanNA really understand how to prevent mortality in the United States. We've been tracking and we've talked about. How important prior medical conditions and in Italy again? Most of the individuals who succumb to this disease had three medical can other prior existing medical conditions. So we've been tracking very hard and putting out. Those warnings warnings about age. People really understood but this new data about the male female ratio is really quite striking. And you're absolutely right from age fifty on it. Almost twice as many men are dying as women and so that really makes us really have to look into that and understand that and really just having the knowledge of that helps us in the United States. So we can be very specific and talking to the American people about who to protect and how to protect the really striking indeed. You've also Dr Ray. Some serious concerns about younger people. You're in the United States becoming seriously. Ill a CDC report just out. On five hundred hospitalized patients actually find that nearly forty percent were between the ages of twenty and fifty four. So what are you actually learning about these younger patients? And what's your message to them. Well thank you wolf but you know the day that we say up to age fifty five is younger is addition of twenty twenty twenty. Bet It's if you look at twenty two forty four it's only twenty percent and if you look in that age group unlike twelve percent were in the ICU. And of course the numbers then get so small. And that's why we've been working very hard with Italy and Europe and South Korea to really understand what they saw so that we can send out really important guidance to our physicians and nurses were on the front line and I really WanNa thank the hospitals in Seattle who have also been providing US information about what they're seeing how they're confronting it. That said we know young people can get sick reassuring pieces at least so far only one individual under nineteen has come to this illness and that was in China but those numbers can change particularly of a young person has a preexisting medical condition. And that's why we're saying to everyone we know. A lot of the cases will be mild. But you can't predict who is going to get the severe illness because you don't know when you walk across the street if that person has a preexisting condition and that's why we've really been appealing to the American people to really attack one another and follow the guidelines. The president put out yesterday President Trump said a drug called caloric wine could be made available and he said quote almost immediately. That's what he said to treat corona virus but today doctor Fauci said there's only anecdotal evidence that this could potentially have any effected preventing or treating the virus. How close are you to approving any drug at all? That could treat this virus because we know vaccine is according to the doctor Fauci at least a year a year and a half away. You know. That's a really great question. And you know Dr Foul she and I both were on the front lines of the HIV AIDS response. And I think you know from nineteen eighty one to one thousand nine hundred ninety eight. When we didn't have effective drugs. We tried a lot of things and some of them did help some and so I think it's very reasonable to try particularly an off the shelf drug which chloroquine hydroxy caloric are and if they're available and they were making them available to physicians in the United States. I think it's important to study them. But when you have an epidemic like this within virus that's new you do WanNa try whatever you have. As long as they can't harm the patients and so being very clear about the side effects making sure that the patients fit the profile and giving the physicians the ability to make those decisions for those patients with those patients and really having dialogue so making these drugs available makes it available to physicians to have that dialogue with their patients and provide that as an option. And I think you know they're also Rendez. Severe Studies ongoing. There's also monoclonal. Antibodies plasma for reese's Hyper Immune Globulin. All of these things. We're working on simultaneously. They will all go into trials but if we can make some drugs available early just to make sure that there's an option for people to try them. I think it's really critical really effectively. Treat these corona virus patients that would be enormously important even if we have to wait much longer for an actual vaccine. I know the administration has been working on a way to report the total number of tests being done in public and private labs around the country. Where does that stand? Can you give us an estimate of the total number of tests? That have been already done nationwide. Well you know I'm data triangulate. Or so all I can tell you is I know that. In general positivity rate is between nine and eleven percent and we have I think your latest numbers fifteen sixteen thousand. I'm not I haven't seen the latest numbers go up because I should just so. If if ninety percent or negative you can do the calculation of how many tasks we have done. But you're going to spend the press conference tomorrow talking about our approach to testing and really I just WanNa make it clear you know the pandemic flu preparedness. I really relied on us. Being our first big plan DEMOC being flu or a flu pandemic so we did have testing available for flu. But when you have a completely new virus you have to come up with a brand new test. I think we started on the flu. Platform quickly realized it had to go into a commercial platform and that's why the president called in the manufacturers
