Posted on 11/07/2012 7:39:35 AM PST by IbJensen
In a bizarre act of barbaric execution, North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un has purged one of his countrys top generals for an unauthorized activity having a drink. For his punishment, the vice minister of the North Korean Army Gen. Kim Chol, has been executed by mortar round. This extremely cruel act to obliterate any remains of Chol happened because he was not perceived as being sufficiently sad during the mandatory period of mourning of the death of the late communist dictator Kim Jong Il.
Whatever the real reason for Chols execution, it serves as an example of communisms complete failure to convince the world of its legitimacy, authenticity and power. When an individual or government resorts to such bombastic tactics to make an example of one who do not agree with them, it is a demonstration of weakness caused by the lack of truth.
For all of the bluff of Kim Jong Uns sword rattling, he is incapable of keeping his own military in line and must resort to terrorism against his own officers in a cowardly act devoid of logic and reason. So why all the drama? This was done solely to instill fear in those unable to escape the horrors of communism. By making an example of some; those remaining are more easily controlled. This, of course includes the civilian sector and for that matter, one might suppose that he hoped the whole world would sit up and take notice of his false bravado. Everyone seems to have noticed and the act revealed Kim Jong Un for what he is an impulsive, uncivilized tyrant unworthy to be dealt with as the legitimate leader of a country.
North Korea persists in maintaining a Soviet-style gulag for those in need of re-education. How else can communism conquer the hearts and souls of its people? Sound arguments have never worked, nor have the non-existent heroic self-abnegated virtues of its leaders.
The most notorious of these concentration camps is Camp 22. It is the worst offender in the countrys abysmal human rights record. Many details of the ongoing horrors are documented in the book Escape from Camp 14, written by former Washington Post correspondent Blaine Harden, which profiles Shin Dong-hyuk who was born in the prison.
Nazi-style torture and human experimentation are conducted in Camp 22, using human beings as guinea pigs for the development of chemical warfare. This was first documented in a nine-part series by the BBC, titled Access To Evil in 2004. One must wonder why there is no media uproar exposing these human rights violations and other atrocities.
What is most troubling is the complicity South Korea has with communist North Korea. According to a Unification Minister from the South, North Korea is stable and is under control of the leadership, so it is best for us to negotiate with North Korean leadership to resolve things. Are a failed economy, a starving population and concentration camps using prisoners as guinea pigs, considered stable?
The worlds twelfth largest economy does not want the tide of 22 million destitute country cousins coming to stay. It prefers a more comfortable financial stability to a fight based on principles against a tyrant. South Korea has preferred to send substantial sums of financial aid, legally and illegally, directly to the Norths communist leader to maintain the status quo for both sides. The South wants stable pleasure through economic success by paying the North to stably maintain its people in misery.
It does not seem to matter to the officials in the South that they are keeping their Northern cousins in abject poverty and subject to unspeakable atrocities imposed by communism. It appears the only ones interested in a serious change of regime of the North are the defectors. One wonders what hope they have in any real assistance from this world; because with friends like South Korea, who needs enemies?
Kim Jong Un, just like his father. Everyone wants to think he’ll be more modern because he’s young. ha!
Same thing with Assad in Syria.
It’s only a matter of time before the U.S. stops defending South Korea and all other countries. The U.S. will continue to become more and more like communist countries, each and everyday, until and unless a total collapse of “everything leftist”, actually, happens.
We can do all the SK protecting we need to do from Guam.
By mortar round???? I thought that was only for woodchucks
ROK Marines would not be amused to hear you say that.
I wonder if they actually fired the mortar round and tried to aim for the spot where he was standing.
That's exactly what happened.
Obummer will stop defending S.Korea because he WANTS socialism to take over the entire country (and world)
Once they get the nod from him they will simply march south and he will do nothing
If they marched en masse tomorrow they could take over with little effort
A couple of tactical nukes in the ‘demilitarized zone’ and they can walk right through
I can just picture him running around a field doging mortars....
One account I read said they zeroed the mortar on a spot on the field, then took him out and tied him to a stake located at that spot and obliterated him.
One drink CAN kill you.
I heard they fired the mortar, then put the guy on the spot where it hit, then fired another.
