TO HIS many victims, and to anyone with a sense of justice, it is deeply wrong that Kim Jong Il died at liberty and of natural causes. The despot ran his country as a gulag. He spread more misery and poverty than any dictator in modern times, killing more of his countrymen in the camps or through needless malnutrition and famine than anyone since Pol Pot. North Koreans are on average three inches shorter than their well-fed cousins in the South. One in 20 has passed through the gulags. Once somebody is deemed a political enemy, his whole family can be condemned to forced labour too. Now, Kim Jong Il will never be held to account.
