The South Korean Chosun Ilbo newspaper says that O Sang-hon was burned alive for his close ties to Kim’s uncle, Jang Song-taek, who was himself executed in December after being accused of using the ministry he headed to plot a coup.
A source inside the North Korean Workers Party told the paper that Mr O was executed in such a horrific way because he had “turned the ministry into Jang’s personal protection squad.”
Just after the death of his father, Kim Jong-il, the new leader also ordered that a defence minister be executed by mortar round after he was seen enjoying himself during the official mourning period.
Communist Dictator must be a fun job – no constitution of limitations on power, no complaining congress, no media, subjects with no natural rights to even live. Government is god and there is no sin for Kim – apparently.
All President Obama can do is shoot a drone missile, use the NSA to spy or turn the IRS on American citizens, but maybe Obama will be more creative in the future.
