All the direct relatives, including children, of Jang Song Thaek, the late uncle of Kim Jong-un who was put to death on December 12 2013, have been executed in North Korea, according to South Korea’s Yonhap News Agency.

“Multiple sources” told Yonhap, a publicly funded news agency, that entire families related to Thaek have been executed.

Thaek was convicted of plotting to overthrow North Korean leader Kim Jong-un and the whole North Korean government, and was sentenced to death by firing squad at the end of last year. The North Korean regime issued photos of his arrest.

If there still is a President (or otherwise) Obama in charge here after January 20, 2017, you’ll hear of similar stories - although not from the media dogs.

It is amazing how absolutely brainwashed the North Koreans are. Much like welfare in the US, servitude in North Korea is generational at this point. They no longer understand the concept of free will or freedom.

I’ve been reading a few WW2 books.
One of them mentioned that the 18-20 yr old German soldiers had never really experienced any government other than Hitler and were totally devoted to his cause.

Probably initiated the executions using that “executive order” thing that is so popular with tyrants these days.

I don’t believe Don Corleone executed relatives unless they were in the business too.

Wonder if the nephew will eventually be executed.

If this were an adventure story, a prophecy would fortell the child of an enemy becoming Kim Jong-Un’s undoing. Unbeknownst to him, one of the baby sons would have been spirited away, raised in secret and trained to eventually fulfill the prophecy.

But this isn’t an adventure story. In the real world, brutal dictators kill everyone.

“One of them mentioned that the 18-20 yr old German soldiers had never really experienced any government other than Hitler and were totally devoted to his cause”

That would be the 12 SS Panzer division, the Hitler Jugend division. They were particularly vicious and the perpetrators of the massacre of captured prisoners in the Normandy campaign. Ironically they displayed more zeal than sense and sustained heavy casualties.

My mother had related to me, during my youth, that two brothers of her neighbor’s family had enlisted in the Canadian army and one of them was captured just after D-Day.
He was executed along with other Canadian soldiers in the courtyard of a church.

My mother said the remaining brother spent the rest of the war delivering payback when the opportunity arose.

They have an excuse. We, as a once, free people do not. We have allowed ourselves to slouch into slavery again I fear.

From Orwell's 1984: "He gazed up at the enormous face. Forty years it had taken him to learn what kind of smile was hidden beneath the dark moustache. O cruel, needless misunderstanding! O stubborn, self-willed exile from the loving breast! Two gin-scented tears trickled down the sides of his nose. But it was all right, everything was all right, the struggle was finished. He had won the victory over himself. He loved Big Brother."

What an evil, inbred f*ck.

And the sad part is... 99.9% of that country’s population have no clue of what happened.

Getting rid of the family members eliminates those who might want revenge.
