N.Korea's Ex-Railways Minister Executed

A nationwide campaign is underway recently in North Korea to get rid of photos and publications of executed former senior officials, Radio Free Asia claimed Tuesday.

This campaign was ordered by leader Kim Jong-il on July 2. The North's Press Censorship Bureau is reportedly destroying documents and materials collected from across the country.

According to RFA, the campaign's targets include Pak Nam-gi, the former director of the North Korean Workers Party's Planning and Finance Department who was executed in March over the disastrous currency reform, and former railways minister Kim Yong-sam.

So, let me get this straight:

If a North Korean government official performs poorly in his job, such as an inability to recover from a collapsing economy, he might be executed and all traces of him removed.

Too bad that idea hasn’t caught on in this country - yet.

Ya know, maybe killin’ the government incompetents has some merit after all.

Note to self: be sure and check printer paper supply for future list of candidates.

Can you imagine being finance minister of that basketcase country.I feel sorry for the next guy that gets stuck with that job. You might as well just hang yourself upon getting that promotion.

So - as I perceive it - in the North Korean manifestation of Socialism, you’re either the people eating grass or an official living the life of Riley until they’re through with you, and then you get excuted.

"Press Censorship Bureau"? You mean they didn't name it the "Ministry of Truth"?

I’s a lot like being promoted to next in command after Darth Vader strangles your predecessor.
