N.Korea Shuts Down Jang Song-taek's Department

The North Korean regime has shut down the Workers Party department once headed by purged eminence grise Jang Song-taek and executed or interned 11 high-ranking officials, sources said Sunday.

One of them was burned alive.

A source said the regime is preparing a third purge of officials who supported Jang. The first purge involved his family, relatives and high-ranking party officials, while the second purge underway. The third will target his supporters in provincial chapters of the Workers Party.

The source said Jang's elder sister Kye-sun and her husband and ambassador to Cuba Jon Yong-jin, as well as their son-in-law Kim Yong-ho, who was head of a trading company, were executed. But ambassador to Malaysia Jang Yong-chol, Jang's nephew, escaped with his life.

He was sent to a concentration camp shortly after Jang Song-taek's execution but was ordered to return to Pyongyang without a job after South Korean media reported rumors of his execution, the source added.

Jang's closest confidants Ri Yong-ha and Jang Su-gil as well as nine other high-ranking party officials were purged, while around 100 lower-ranking party officials loyal to Jang were sacked.

O Sang-hon, a deputy minister at the Ministry of Public Security, was "executed by flamethrower," the source said.

The reason for the horrific method that he had turned the ministry into Jang's personal protection squad, the source added.

From the movie, “Stalin”:

Kamenev: We were promised our lives.
Beria: Comrade Stalin has revoked his promise.

At some point his agents will figure it is better to kill the little satan rather than the little satan kill them.

I’m surprised he hasn’t actually crucified anyone yet.

This is a Confucian monarchy. It dispensed with Communist ideology after the end of the Cold War.

All that matters is absolute loyalty to the Dear Leader. If you do not grasp the principle, you stand to lose your head.

North Korea isn’t called the “Hermit Kingdom” for nothing.

Can you think of a benevolent dictatorship?
Isn't a dictatorship, by definition, BRUTAL? I would think so.

Yep, once they see that he's completely insane, and they can't count on him respecting their loyalty.

He's a fool - he thinks he's Hillary.

Which nicely illustrates that Communism is a foretaste of Hell.
