A guard in helmet carrying an assault rifle is seen in the background(circled in the photo.) Previously, an armed security guard had not been seen in the photo of his on-site tours as well as Kim Jong-il's. N. Korea recently conducted mass firing (purge) of high-ranking generals. Many top-ranking generals are either demoted or under house arrest (one-time top military man, Lee Yong-ho.) Besides, Kim Jong-eun took away military's lucrative hard currency earning enterprises. He must be mindful of backlash. His life expectancy is shrinking.
how does the little man assure the reliability of the security guard?
What the heck is the soldier with the notepad always writing about? He’s in a lot of photos.
“Dear Diary: today the great leader looked at me and smiled in his special way. I knew he was thinking about our night of passion last night. Will he propose? All the other girls would be so jealous. Have to go now. He needs me to show him how to use a spoon....again.”
He has 3 generations of their families in cages.
호위자 =guard, escort
폭군 = tyrant
I really like this hangul website: http://www.branah.com/korean
The guy circled in the photo is Joe. He’s always crashing photos. You can’t see it in the photo, but I bet he’s flipping the bird to the camera. That crazy Joe. What a knucklehead.
범ㅍ = that's not Korean but it "sounds" like BUMP!
Some day that sick, murderous, cult of a nation will come crashing down. How or when is the question.
He’s the guy who writes down the names of people that Kim makes the “kill him later” gesture towards.
lol. Might be true.
well, I thought it was a good post.
You see this in almost every photo of Jong-un. I wonder if these guys get together later to compare their notes to see if they all got the same “to-do” list from him but I doubt these guys are going to dispute Jong-un if he says he did or did not say or order something to be done. Actually, this is common in military units but here it is so obvious.
He might be taking down lunch orders.
“OK, I’ve got a Big Mac with fries and a Coke.....a Quarter pounder with cheese and two apple pies......twenty seven orders of fries and a small Diet Coke......a Whopper?......who’s the funny guy?......Bob?......just for that you get a salad.”
It would be so easily, relatively speaking, to flip one of these guys and pay him off and, if it made geopolitical sense, do the deed.
Say, have they got Kim Jong Eun lapel badges out yet? Have you heard?
I was also wondering if they are displaying is photo in large measure in buildings everywhere with dad and grand dad yet. I would imagine they would wait one full year (of mourning) from Kim Jong il Chia Head kicking the bucket before doing that, right? I recall we debated what the order would be on how they would display the dynastic photos, three of them, up simultaneously in the DPRK.
Is Kim the only fat person in North Korea?
I'm not so sure it would be easy in North Korea, but I do think the Kim dynasty has not forgotten what happened with the KCIA official who shot President Park, or the previous effort by a North Korean agent who shot Park's wife while trying to shoot President Park.
It only takes one well-placed person willing to die to topple a dictatorial regime focused on a personality cult.
Unfortunately, suicide bombers don't seem to be in fashion in North Korea. Where are the Muslim jihadists when we could actually use one?
I would love to have a North Korean-style lapel pin with Obama and Frank Marshall Davis side by side.
