Park Geun-hye going to stay in hospital until February.

Park Geun-hye going to be discharged this week, will apparently give "brief remarks" to the media. Suffering from a chronic illness, but well enough to receive treatment at home.

 

Kuwait has lost a few old politicos this month. "National symbol" Ahmad Muhammad Al-Khatib died two weeks ago at 95 as well as Ghanam Al-Jumhur at 90/91 and now another national symbol, Abdullah Al-Nibari, has died at 85, two days before his birthday.

And wrote an article only last month. 
 

The cause of death was cancer according to the official announcement.

Was her cancer ever announced? if not, no surprised it came out of nowhere - similar (lack of prior cancer announcement) happened with the Black Panther actor whose name I'm blanking on

She looked slightly frail in October when Blinken met his predecessors as I mentioned in the Kissinger thread.

James Baker, 91 and Madeleine Albright, 84 in one of the photos.

However still very unexpected, I would not have thought she'd go during the next few years as she looked pretty great in some later pictures.

Michael Armacost (acting, 1989), James Baker (1989-1992) and Frank G. Wisner (acting, 1993) remain. And Powell's successors. They better watch out...

Gen. Colin Powell had his funeral service today. Quite a few notable people there and some not.

 

Neither Carter showed up, nor did Bill Clinton (or the Trumps....but that was obvious).

Madeleine Albright showed up and looked fairly good. Gave a speech.

Neither Henry Kissinger nor James Baker showed up.

 

His wife, Alma Powell, did not look good at all in a wheelchair. She is 84 years old and I'm not sure how long she'll last.

 

Link if anyone cares to watch more closely:

How quickly times change. Madeleine Albright did not seem close to death. Kissinger marches on...

 

I'd be interested to know what she officially died of, I realize cancer seems to be the culprit. It would just be a rapid descent from cancer in 4ish months.

Good riddance. If this isn't a hoax.

 

Edit: Sadly it was as mentioned below.

RIA's Twitter reported him as dead as well for a bit, but that seems have been taken down as well.

The state duma speaker has apparently said that he's in "grave condition"

I'm inclined to believe that this is right in that he's on his deathbed - or that he's already dead, and they're holding back announcing it for some reason, and one person jumped ship.

Claudette Bradshaw, a Canadian MP from 1997 to 2006 representing the Moncton-Riverview-Dieppe riding, who served as a Cabinet member, has died. She was 72. Bradshaw was a parliamentary secretary to the minister for international cooperation, minister responsible for the Francophonie, minister of labour, minister of state and minister responsible for homelessness.
