Kim Jong-un's Aunt Now Missing From Photo
ABC News ^ | 12/17/2013 | Joohee Cho

Posted on 12/17/2013 10:48:51 AM PST by mojito

North Korea's military and political elite lined up in formation to swear fealty to its leader Kim Jong-un today as observers studied the position of top aides to see who survived the recent purge of Kim's uncle.

Kim's paternal aunt Kim Kyong-hui was not present at any of the events after her husband Jang Song-thaek, known to have been North Korea's second most powerful man, was suddenly purged and executed last week.

The aunt was reportedly in favor of her husband's ouster from the government. Jang has been charged of alleged drug abuse, womanizing, and treason by attempting to create his own powerbase within the regime.

"With Jang now out of the picture, North Korea is ready and set to go to start assembling people behind Kim Jong-un's sole and only leadership," said Park Chang-kwon, senior research fellow at Korea Institute for Defense Analyses in Seoul.

The occasion for the state photograph was commemoration ceremonies to mark the second anniversary of the death of Kim's father, Kim Jong-il.

Top officials sat with Kim on a wide stage at the Pyongyang Indoor Gymnasium with a huge portrait of Kim Jong-il behind them, heads bowed as the traditional North Korean funeral dirge played.

At several points during the speeches, all rose to applaud the "immortal and glorious exploits" of the late leader. Kim Jong-un, wearing a gray Mao suit, did not speak at the ceremony.

Wasn’t it the aunt who set the uncle (her husband) up?

What goes around....

Hope she’s made her will.

This, in the Orwellian Newspeak, is what is known as becoming an “unperson”.

Extensively used in the Stalinist regime of the old Soviet Union.

He can just crook one finger and have every one of them - and their parents and grandparents - sent to a labor camp for life. Or killed.

He literally owns them, and he owns every person and every object in North Korea.

Kim Jung Un better watch out. He who lives by the sword often dies by it. Yes, Bashar is still there in Syria, but that country has nearby support from it’s evil big brother Iran. North Korea may have China to pay it’s bills, or maybe not. Krazy-Kim could now have become such a dangerous nuisance, that the Chinese will allow him to be ‘permanently re-assigned’ without their intervention.
