Udall statement on death of Kim Jong Il

Senator Mark Udall released this statement today, on the death of North Korean leader Kim Jong Il: "Kim Jong Il was a tyrant who severely oppressed his own people and threatened the world with his pursuit of nuclear weapons. North Korea was never going to change radically under his rule, and so the isolated country now has an opportunity to re-engage with the world. However, we're entering a dangerous phase, in which one tyrant may well be replaced by another.
