MayoSlather: Duke_leto_Atredes: I would like to care, but i just dont. In the end all governments are democratic, enough people need to rise up and wipe this turd out. it is their proplem we have our own aand need to stop being the world police/911

Democratic? hmm. You get caught conspiring against NK and they kill you and everyone you know. The NK people are poor, hungry, and powerless to fight back against a ruthless army. There is literally nothing they won't do to the people if there was an uprising. They also currently have the world's largest forced labor camp, it's a giant melange of human rights violations.

I mean don't care if you don't want to, but it's hard not to have empathy for a people that are suffering that kind of oppression.


Bears repeating.

I'm still waiting for Rodman to say the wrong thing, or have the wrong reaction or even just be in the wrong place at the wrong time on one of his diplomatic excursions.  It's got to be like hanging out with one of Joe Pesci's characters.

EJ25T: FTA: "Among those allegedly executed from Thaek's family are his brother-in-law and the country's ambassador to Cuba Jon Yong-jin and Thaek's nephew and ambassador to Malaysia Jang Yong-chol. The two diplomats were both recalled from their positions back to North Korea earlier this month. "

You know, if I had learned that a high-ranking family member had been executed recently, I might just not go home and disappear permanently. Just sayin'


I remember when that thread about them being recalled came up I commented about how they'd probably end up being executed... but I wonder how many future diplomats will bother with recall orders in the future after this.

show me: Good. He should kill everyone even remotely related to his uncle.


Remember the study that found that almost everyone in the US was separated from each other by less than 5 or so degrees of separation? I think to be safe, the Norks need to execute the entire country.

gshepnyc: Two16: wxboy: Probably was the type of uncle that would give lil' Un socks for Christmas.

If he keeps killing everyone related to him, there will be nobody left to hand the country over to when he dies.

There's your problem; all of the "Dear Leader"s (or whatever the current THUG calls himself) will "Live Forever" because of "I'm-God-On-Earth" reasons.

I highly doubt he thinks of himself as an immortal. It's not even likely that the Roman emperors ever believed that of themselves despite it being part of their styling. More likely, he simply doesn't care what happens to NK after his own death. That is a common dictator trait. Or, he may have a sense that the party is almost over and he is just trying to hang on as long as he can.


Oh, I know *HE* knows that; the rest of his population... not so much, or too scared to want to know. :(

If we miss or even if we get him, his lieutenants will open fire with all that artillery permanently pointing south and within minutes 5 million South Koreans in and around Seoul will die.  Korea is the worlds longest hostage situation.

Magorn: Wires must have gotten crossed about who exactly gave the order because when the Army arrived to take possession of the Port, forces loyal to Un's Uncle resisted-violently. Worse yet, they basically completely routed the Army forces until massive reinforcements where brought up for a combined sea-air-land assault. Un was a little shook to realize he didn't control the best trained soldiers in his own country and execution-a-palooza ensued


Well, that and they likely weren't expecting any sort of fight/riot/resistance.

For historical perspective, there was a similar incident in China during the Civil War.

Although the Japanese had invaded China and occupied a large area, Mao and Chiang Kai-shek were fighting each other.  Temporarily headquartered in Xian,  Chiang Kai-shek's generals wanted to establish a truce with the communists and join forces to fight the foreign invader, but their opinion was overruled.  The generals then basically held hostage Chiang and forced him to agree to a truce.

However, at least according to the tour guide, Chiang had at least some of the conspiring generals assassinated after the war along with their families.

If this actually does turn out to be true, the people around him will be so on edge until one of them snaps and shoots him point blank.

Then the remaining military has the choice of celebrating this or (more likely, unfortunately) continue the farce.

Which is why we only get national brouhaha when the school shootings happen at schools afflicted with affluenza.

I agree the US has been too intrusive in the past, and we need to get out the way. However there is a level of abuse where it seems necessary to step in, and I think NK is right about there. We should use every diplomatic channel first though, but real pressure needs to be applied to get China to step in, who seems to have the most clout in the situation.

They're not dead.  This little guy's just trying to get attention in a new way.

He simply retired them to the Bahamas; Uncle had to go first to set the living arrangements up.  The entire family is probably laughing their asses off at the entire world thinking what a "bad ass" his little nephew is.  Heh.  Good show, old chap!  Good show!

Although Un was probably holding their wives and children hostage inside NK. Evil bastard.


IIRC, I thought some diplomatic staff were allowed to bring their family (spouse, children) along with them. At least, that is my understanding in US diplomatic service.

But, you would think that in the back of their minds, they had to know that being related to a guy that close to the top has/had its perks and drawbacks. (Not condoning what happened, just making observation.)

Either way, this shiat is farked up.

The ideal scenario for China is for someone to nuclear carpetbomb NK border to border and leave nothing in its wake.  The logistical and economic fallout of a post-regime NK is something no one, not even China, wants to entertain.
