N.Korea 'to Execute 200 Jang Song-taek Loyalists'
North Korea is poised to execute 200 high-ranking officials loyal to ousted eminence grise Jang Song-taek, a source said Tuesday. Some 1,000 members of their families could be sent to concentration camps under the North's barbaric system of guilt by association.
The source said the State Security Department has conducted a sweep to ferret out Jang's supporters after his execution in December last year and identified 200 core supporters and another 1,000 followers.
The department has authorization from the North's highest court to hold closed-door trials to deliver death sentences, the source added. This apparently aims to make it look as if proper procedure, to the extent that it exists at all, has been followed.
The families of those who have been sentenced to death are likely to be sent to concentration camps without trial.
The source said, "Among those who have been sentenced to death are 200 officials in the Workers Party, the government and military who received orders directly from Jang Song-taek. The executions will take place at the shooting range at Kang Kon Military Academy under the eyes of high-ranking party, government and military officials."
The public executions are designed to set an example to waverers what will happen to them if they fail to show blind obedience to Kim Jong-un, who marks his third year in power this year.

This is one young adult who is already skilled in methodical purging.
This is the reason removing any of the Kims will be something that could only be done by an act of God; he’s been very well trained and brought up to be very cunning in dealing with people who he somehow manages to figure out as plotting against him.
He must be able to read minds since he apparently hammered out a very good contract with his Lord and Master Lucifer.
Obey the Dear Leader or sleep with the fishes.
We solemnly repeat “never again”, build holocaust memorials, write books about the NKVD and the Gulags. We hunt down 90 year old Nazis who have only hidden since 1945.
We act deeply concerned.
And this afternoon, a death camp is functioning in a backwards country. And we actually pay them money. Its utterly insane.
North Korea is a fascist dictatorship in the trappings of a Confucian family dynasty.
Primacy of obedience to one’s elders is of primary importance. In a such a world, the individual is insignificant.
WHY do we allow this monster to live ?
We can’t kill him; we’re not dealing with someone like Saddam or Ghaddafi, we’re dealing first with a regime that is fully loyal and brainwashed and a population with no connection at all to the outside world. This is a population kept effectively cut off from the rest of the world.
Second, he’s almost satanically cunning. He’s someone who knows precisely who to target in a purge and has managed to outfox very real adversaries to take and maintain power. He’s a product of pure Eastern Asian culture and this is not a culture that is based on being obvious.
Third, removing him would require an insane amount of delicacy. The Chinese are direct neighbors and any military moves near them could cause a horrific outbreak of world war if anything went wrong. The Chinese might not like him, but he is their burden and they know how to contain the demon.
Fourth, North Korea has nukes. Kim Jong-Il perfected it and tested it. There is no way we can even make any maneuvers without that demon in power using those nukes. The Chinese would absorb the fallout. They would be used against the United States and yes, Kim Jong-Un is likely just that ruthless to do it. He’s not crazy either, but a sadist.
There are so many more variables. We would also have to deprogram an entire nation and end up acclimatize them to the modern world, something that would be a HUGE adjustment and a traumatized population would require a huge amount of specialized handling. Humanitarian project for at least a decade.
well Kimmy shore was not respectful of his uncle
blasting him to Kingdom Come would do the Chinese a favar as well
The kid is really weeding the garden. His daddy taught him well
Why does God allow such atrocity to continue but all things and souls find their appointed place in eternity at the end.
Someone should inform North Korea that there’s no need for pretense - the world has long since noted that these homicidal psychotics need no excuse to wallow in murder.
Including children being sent to concentration camps
So long as they live, kim is in danger.
America will live with crap from obama for 40 more years, even after he is gone from office. He will continue to be a danger for a very long time
Are these N. Korean elites only getting what they meted out to others when they were top dog?
How much compassion should I have felt for Stalin’s comrades in arms—when they supported him when he was executing other people?
Is there “justice” in all of this, anyway (even though that’s not necessarily Kim’s motive for his actions)?
He’s just Alinsky on steroids. I’m sure Obama is green with envy.
