You have a point there...and I eluded to a chem test.. Maybe that is what they're carrying? Back when things were heating up and I was deep in research to make my triple thread set on Korea, I'd come across defector debriefing reports and summaries. One of the defectors..late 90's vintage I believe.. described a test run by the DPRK Military for a Chemical warfare agent. It didn't do what most do... No nerve spasms to break your own spine from. No hacking out what is suppose to stay inside. Nothing ugly like that..and that made it chilling, somehow.
All the reports indicated it did was remove/displace oxygen in open air. Like what Co2 does in a mine shaft, moving to lower levels. W/o Oxygen, literally, you're likely dead before you know you needed to run, since the first effects aren't alarming.
The reason I mention this..and why it trips for me is that the first (not second multi-site incident) chemical attack in Syria was been debated as even BEING a chem attack for lack of residue on clothing and skin, smell or visible damage. The air just wasn't breathable ...and then, it was again ..with a bunch of dead people in it's wake. Who knows.... Connections can be odd sometimes, and perhaps these runners DO have something worth sharing, aside from personal embarrassments for Dear Kim.edit on 12-12-2013 by Wrabbit2000 because: (no reason given)
I'm not sure what damaging information is defined as when the nation is run by a little madman, from a line of madmen who simply shoots what pisses him off.
He was suspected of nukes..laughed and tested one to remove all doubt. Defectors have described chem weapons testing (and some with some interesting signatures, similar to use in other areas, BTW). He and his father have laughed at that. He DOES run the largest and most brutal prison system on this planet for population size...with the worst grinding poverty mankind has to show in a nation with a functional Government.
What could they possibly be carrying worse than what reality is inside the DPRK and for those watching it from the outside? I suppose if old Kim has a limp noodle or something, he might have an Ego meltdown moment to have such a thing get out..and maybe that IS it. Who knows...
I just can't imagine what embarasses a leader who uses torture, murder and open repression of basic public life as daily and routine solutions.

I saw. I was just explaining that many common chemicals kill you in a matter of seconds with no symptoms. I sont know why they would create a complicated novelversion of a common chemical that has the same effect as something simple.
The chemical weapon used in Syria was rebel made "kitchen sarin." That's pretty much agreed upon by most of the people the worldbut the white house. Of course the W.H. had an agenda. That was a painfully transparent embarrassment, but common sense prevailed for once.edit on 13-12-2013 by GogoVicMorrow because: (no reason given)
Jong Un from my understanding, from a very credible source, has been nothing but try to bring his country to be more urbanized, while also trying to satisfy his army. He can't be all that bad.
A source, who is familiar with internal affairs in the North and who recently visited the country, told the paper that about 10 people were killed in each city.
Eight people — their heads covered with white bags — were tied to stakes at a local stadium in the city of Wonsan, before authorities shot them with a machine gun, according to the source.
Wonsan authorities gathered a crowd of 10,000 people, including children, at Shinpoong Stadium and forced them to watch the killings.
What were those executed charged with? The regime claims they were killed for watching illicit South Korean TV dramas, and some with prostitution.
Kim Jong-un’s regime, like his father’s before him, is notorious for its persecution of Christians. Merely possessing a Bible can be a cause for execution, and this appears to be the case in this instance. Having the Bible in one’s possession is an unforgivable offensive.

By the way, Taiwanese friend said today, that Chinese/Taiwanese news agencies spread the news tha Kim Jong Un got arrested...
But apparently it was false news. I wonder what would happen if this really happens one time
