#1 Puppet leader, eh? What say we all chip in and send him the dvd of "Team America: World Police"? We got your puppet leader right here. America, *bleep* yeah!

#2 A young puppet strikes me as a really poor prospect for short-term stability. There'll be blood on the walls the first time somebody tugs on one string & his worst enemy tugs on the string controlling the opposite limb.

Also? Asian gerontological political traditions aside, twentysomething supreme rulers don't make for the most tractable of puppets. There was a reason that the fathers and grandfathers of Japanese emperors and shoguns made sure to retire their lieges into monasteries prior to pubescence - it's easier to play puppetmaster with someone whose pubes haven't popped yet.

#3 It sounds like young "-un" has much to learn and a poor longterm survival prospect.
