Here's a theory on why this event is being made public.

Suppose that the North Korean Army, being a professional and pragmatic bunch of people (this is a hypothesis) are not, in fact, the militaristic element in North Korean society.
Suppose all the recent militaristic posturing has actually been coming from the family, who don't understand military matters, and so don't understand how dangerous their behaviour is.
Suppose that this move against the uncle is part of a move by the Army to restrain the power of the family.

Then this publicity could be a way for the Army to send a message to the West; "Look, we're getting rid of the madmen and their missile obsession, so perhaps we can now talk business?"

When news broke about him being removed from office, I figured this was the uncle's fate.

He was executed so other dissidents would fear the consequences. No doubt about that in my mind.

Yeah that's true, and his friends as well. But I'm sure they all watched his execution because isn't that also the law?

Golly NoKo is literally crazy land.

This means HARDENING of North Korea stance. Even if they released one American old POW that might be a diversion move. Apparently the uncle did not approve the continuation of the course or its greater assertiveness. there is nothing else he couldn't approve, to bring to his execution. Those are close members and they know each other perfectly. Only a big "crime" in the eyes of the establishment may bring the harshest punishment. Notice he might have been executed days or weeks prior its public announcement.

Possible scenario: NK establishment has decided to go on war with the South. The uncle disagreed to a degree considered too far. He might have warned to leak the plan, he might have sought collaborators for a coup, or God knows what. He is mercilessly eliminated for the sake of "motherland's interests". Notice how they call him "worse than a dog" (dog is despicable animal in Asia that is also eaten).

Expect not only new tests, but also an actual attack, conventional or even nuclear.

Ed Dames the major who projected future events, said a North Korean nuclear device will be exploded right before the arrival of planet X. Preceded by grounding of a space ship. ISS just reported they have problems with the pump of the air.

This event is not showing dissent among the army. This is showing hardening of positions of those who call the shots. They are not just "the family", they are the establishment. Young Kim has virtually no say. If they can just get rid of his powerful uncle.

A "conversion" course of the North would not include execution. They just restarted the common production facility with the south. What you say might be true for a better country. For the North, the opposite is true. The hardliners took full control if they can take the control of a family member. If young Kim doesn't follow them he will be eliminated as well. He has older brothers who could take the rule. Consider North Korea a much more cruel enemy now, when they sacrificed one of their top leaders, for the "benefits of the nation". Their benefits differ from the very idea of what a nation may benefit, that most of us have.

In pre-war situations such as pre-WW2 hardening of interior lines means imminent attack. Fear the dog that does not bark. North Korea is relatively quiet for a couple of months and that is strange.

He was earlier described by state media as "abusing his power," being "engrossed in irregularities and corruption," and taking drugs and squandering money at casinos while undergoing medical treatment in a foreign country


You know on second thought. I wonder if this manchild running that fiasco ever considered what his pops did?

Now the stirctly controlled propaganda machine will make him darker than the devil, sparing no accusation true or false.
The boy knows what he must do and that is to play the role of a leader while following "advises" of generals who just smile at him on photos as if they see 16 years old who trains how to look at binoculars, not their supreme leader and military command in chief. Or he will not remain in the position of the man who hits the red button and will follow his uncle. They need him, but only to a certain degree. The brute elimination of the uncle for whatever real reason (I listed one very likely), shows they will have no restraint to keep the status quo. Sorry it is not vice versus. This is North Korea, not even China. Moreover, they have two possible substitues for the role of supreme leader, his two older brothers. If Kim behaves not as directed, he will be just exchanged. May be not "executed" but he might caught incurable illness and got a state funeral.

the idea the young educated and pro-western culture Kim will change anything in the hierarchy, fades away with that execution. It is better the US-Korea-Japan allies prepare for the worst scenario, not for the best. Moreover, we have an assertive China that just enlarged its maritime territory unilaterally. Provocations more usual for the Cold War. So you count North Korea plus China even if Russia stays aside.

And Putin does not stay aside. He is busy restarting Arctic bases in the ice in the Winter. He doesn't have time or need to pay the last respect to Mandela when all the world leaders went to pay respect to the man so often associated with the Left in the political spectrum. Wasn't Mandela an ally of USSR? Why si Putin missing then? Castro was!

Prepare for the worst! That is a sneak nuclear attack plus EM and laser weapons of unknown type, that will be announced on the survival CNN stations only after it is a done fact. It will take 10-30 min at most. SHould USA consider pre-preemptive strike then?

Not forgetting of course how a Lunatic Bunch of what nots run the so called Country - NK - each well fed, and pretty Fat, while thousands of NK Citizens are nigh on Starved to Death, or eliminated for trying to Break Free. A Daily North Korean Practice.

Are you really that ignorant that your calling the north korean goverment leftists... i feel sorry for you... but with that avatar i guess nothing less could be expected


What exactly do you think the North Korean government is?
You do understand that they are leftists, right?
The last hardcore communist country left as I understand.
Communism is the extreme left of the political spectrum.
Kim Il Sung created his government based on Marxist-Leninist Ideology.
Even the old Russian and Chinese communists thought North Korea was too extremely left.

Wishful thinking at best. I doubt even China really has any of the Generals in their pocket. The psycho dynasty of NK has made sure for generations that it wipes out anyone that could be a threat to it. Any "reformers" have long since been eradicated.

Here's hoping that someone in the NK Military has the guts to end the "Supreme Leader's" reign of insanity.

Israel is a socialist country, so by your standard it must be moving closer to these kind of crazy acts.
