Kim Jong Il's funeral a show of stability? CSIS's Victor Cha on what can be learned from the procession

North Korea is painting a picture of power and stability this morning as the world watches the funeral procession for Kim Jong Il.

Thousands of hysterical mourners lined the streets of the capital in the snow to say farewell to the former dictator. His son Kim Jong Un - the hand-picked successor to North Korea - walked alongside the hearse with thousands of soldiers marching in step right behind him.

This morning on American Morning, senior advisor and Korea Chair at the Center for Strategic and International Studies Victor Cha talks about whether today's events reveal anything about the leadership transition and why so many who study North Korea are pessimistic about the country's future.

Predicting 2012...with science: Michio Kaku on what to look out for in the new year

The world could end about a year from now on December 21, 2012...if the Mayan calendar is correct, that is. We here at American Morning aren't going to rely on some primitive astronomy.

If you want to make decisions based off what could actually happen next year – listen to Michio Kaku, a child prodigy who's become one of the greatest minds of our time. He's a top physicist at City University of New York who has picked up where Albert Einstein left off.

Kaku wrote the book "Physics of the Future: How Science Will Shape Human Destiny and Our Daily Lives by the Year 2100" and in the book he talks to hundreds of other scientists to piece together what our life will look like in the next century.

This morning on American Morning, Kaku joins Ali Velshi to share with us with a glimpse at what's possible in 2012.
