As you probably know by now, North Korea's communist dictator, Kim Jong Il, is dead. In addition to being dead, the "Dear Leader" is also in a "warm corner of hell" with the likes of Adolf Hitler and Osama bin Laden.

That's according to Arizona Senator John McCain, who reacted to the North Korean dictator's death with a sense of jubilation.

From the Associated Press:

"I can only express satisfaction that the Dear Leader is joining the likes of Qaddafi, Bin Laden, Hitler, and Stalin in a warm corner of hell," McCain said

North Koreans aren't nearly as thrilled about the death of their leader (according to the isolationist country's propaganda department, that is).

Watch video below -- released by North Korean state TV -- of North Koreans hysterically mourning the late leader.
