North Korean leader fed uncle to starving dogs, report says

The execution of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un's uncle was more brutal than initially reported, according to a Beijing-controlled newspaper, which said the country's second-most-powerful figure was thrown into a cage filled with starving dogs and eaten alive.

The Singaporean Straits Times cited a report from Wen Wei Po, a Beijing-control newspaper, that said Jang Song Thaek and five close associates were stripped and fed to 120 dogs that had not eaten for three days. The entire process, witnessed by 300 senior officials, lasted for about an hour, the report said. Fox News could not immediately verify the report.

Sounds like a moral building event.

As long as none of them are sociopathic communist dickhead, I'm sure you'll be fine. Besides, I'm sure something this savage had little if anything to do with anything they did. It's not like he killed them for being communist, after all.

According to reliable reports, at the start of the ceremony Kim Jong Un was heard saying to the throng of dogs: “Here are the Men from U.N.C.L.E.!”

Communism killed somewhere in the neighborhood of 100 million plus in the 20th century, carrying on that tradition in the 21st.

The families of those eaten have probably ended up in labor camps. Another tradition.

Dear American university professors: How’s this little experiment in socialism working out for you? Maybe you can get him to add to humanity’s knowledge by conducting more experiments? Maybe you could get him to see if he could reduce the consumption time by adding more dogs? There’s a theory out there at Harvard that says that starving the dogs for seven days would reduce the consumption time by 17%. Maybe Harvard could fund the research?

The Un has gone all Caligula. I wonder what his Patrons the Chinese think about being associated with him. He had better be certain not to turn his back on anyone.

If the uncle was in the regime, he probably did far worse to persons who did far less.

They presumably sick such dogs on prisoners in their “re-education camps”, so if this is true, it wouldn’t be surprising...

I question this story. A dog that has not eaten for three days would look to a human for food initially. I think they would be more likely to try to consume the smaller dogs than attack a human.

I question this story.

It did apparently come from Red China. In any case, it certainly isn't out of the realm of possibility.

Kind of my impression, as well.

The second generation preserves,
The third generation squanders.

Drop in food in crates with rifles and a message: “Kill the guy at the top and there is more food”

See how long he lasts.

Even the Chinese are not liking this. Kim is making Communism look bad! If this really happened, I don’t think he’ll be around very long, at least not in a position of full authority. That sounds like a punishment that Alexander The Great of Genghis Khan would have made up. Absolutely nutzo. Hey, John McCain, THIS is what a real whacko bird looks like. Dennis Rodman!! Still want to Pal Around with Kim?

Oh, uh, I fogot, he said we have the same prisoner camps.

Dropping the food probably would have helped, but I doubt the dogs would have read the note.

You think the dogs were pets? Think again. They didn’t starve the dogs to get them to attack. They starved them to ensure that they continued to rip the bodies apart for effect. To impress the audience with something they’d never forget.

I’m not sure what you’re saying. I’m not for doing business with the ChiComs, helping them boost their economy to where it is now, putting large chunks of the money into their military.

I think we agree.

I just was responding to the post is all.

China is going to be a huge problem in a not to distant future.

America needs to bring back American jobs.

For real.

The problem is so far, nobody is for bringing back American jobs.

Nobody. In either party.

Apparently correct, except that Auntie appears to have survived. A cautionary tale for our own would-be ruling class. It ain't easy at the top for fun-loving totalitarians.
