    Kim Jong Un purges his Uncle

    Won’t it be wonderful when our own Great Leaders can freely remove all political incorrectness to make our government more efficient?

    North Korea announced Monday it had sacked leader Kim Jong Un’s uncle, long considered the country’s No. 2 power, saying corruption, drug use, gambling, womanizing and generally leading a “dissolute and depraved life” had caused Pyongyang’s highest-profile fall from grace since Kim took power two years ago.

    The removal of Jang Song Thaek, once seen as Kim’s mentor, is the most significant in a series of purges the young leader has conducted in an apparent effort to bolster his power since his father’s 2011 death. But worries remained over whether the expulsion of such a senior figure could instead lead to less stability and open up the possibility of a power struggle.

    The confirmation that Pyongyang had “eliminated Jang and purged his group,” carried in an unusually detailed and lengthy dispatch by the North’s official Korean Central News Agency, was seen by some analysts as a warning against dissent. It came about a week after South Korea’s spy agency said that two of Jang’s closest assistants had been executed for corruption.


    North Korean state TV showed a still image of two uniformed guards holding Jang by the arms at a meeting of the country’s Political Bureau as dozens of dark-suited officials seated behind rows of long desks looked on.

    With tensions on the Korean Peninsula still high following a torrent of threats in March and April by Kim’s government against Washington, Seoul and Tokyo, there were fears in Seoul that confusion in the North could lead to a miscalculation or attack. Experts believe Pyongyang has a handful of crude nuclear bombs. South Korea’s defense ministry said there have been no suspicious military movements, however.

    Re: Kim Jong Un purges his Uncle

    Bye-Bye Uncle Jang! Wouldn't it be great if we could also clean out all the bureaucrats who spent $600 million on a website that is exactly like a Rube Goldberg invention?

    NORTH Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un has had his uncle executed after declaring the former second-most powerful man in his regime was "worse than a dog".
    In a move which commentators suggests indicates a behind-the-scenes power struggle, the move follows the execution of two of his uncle's "close confidantes" late last month.

    North Korean news agency KCNA announced the execution of "traitor Jang Song-Thaek" in a statement early this morning.

    "The service personnel and people throughout the country broke into angry shouts that a stern judgment of the revolution should be meted out to the anti-party, counter-revolutionary factional elements," the statement reads.

    It states Jong-Un's uncle "committed such hideous crime as attempting to overthrow the state by all sorts of intrigues and despicable methods with a wild ambition to grab the supreme power of our party and state."

    The North Korean state media later went so far as to call the leader's former mentor "despicable human scum, worse than a dog."

    Jang Song-Thaek had been removed from all posts, including vice chairman of the communist country's top military body, the National Defence Commission, earlier this month.

    He was accused of corruption, drug use, gambling, womanising and generally leading a "dissolute and depraved life.''

    Two of his close confidantes - Ri Yong-Ha and Jang Soo-Kil - were publicly executed in mid-November".

    "Behind every great man is a great woman."

    The Great Leader's darling wife and wise old aunt are apparently influencing his ideological purges.

    Uncle Jang has been swiftly wiped from history, removed from the official photos and videos, and denounced as "despicable human scum". Tried for an attempted coup and a catalogue of "thrice-cursed acts of treachery", he was last photographed as a broken man - stooped, stumbling and bearing signs of torture.

    As Western observers try to unlock the riddle that is North Korea, the question is: who’s next?
