Read about this at the other board I go to. I'll simply paste the text and link here instead of explaining it.


"‘No trace’ left after extreme executions in North Korea


SEOUL — North Korea’s young new leader, Kim Jong-un, has instituted a novel method of executing military officers - mortar firing squad, South Korea’s leading daily newspaper reported Tuesday.

The 20-something Mr. Kim ordered a military officer to be executed in a way that would leave “no trace of him behind, down to his hair,” the daily Chosun Ilbo reported, quoting a South Korean government source.

The officer was placed at the aiming point of a mortar range, where an artillery shell exploded and blew him to pieces, the newspaper reported. His crime: being caught drunk during the mourning period for Kim Jong-il, Mr. Kim’s father and predecessor who died in December.

The execution was part of a purge of “unsound” military officers that took place under the control of the new supreme leader, the paper reported.

“When Kim Jong-un became North Korean leader following the mourning period for his father in late December, high-ranking military officers started disappearing,” the South Korean government source told Chosun Ilbo. “From information compiled over the last month, we have concluded that dozens of military officers were purged.”

Mr. Kim also ordered loyal officials to “get rid of” anyone caught misbehaving during the mourning period for his father, the source added.

The North Korean People's Army uses Warsaw Pact 82 mm mortars that fire artillery shells that weigh as much as 7 pounds and produce a killing radius of about 17 yards on impact.

The Chosun Ilbo report is the first to note such an explosive method of execution used in Korea, but there are historical precedents in other countries. For example, during the 1857 Indian Mutiny, vengeful British forces earned notoriety for blasting captured mutineers from a cannon.

Those familiar with the secretive North Korean regime say its authorities are not shy about using the grisliest execution techniques.

“I have not heard of mortar executions, but it is possible, as the North Korean government uses the most horrible methods,” Shin Ju-hyun of the Daily NK, a South Korean nonprofit group with intelligence about North Korea, told Britain’s Daily Telegraph newspaper.

“One defector told me of an execution in which 90 bullets were fired. Afterwards, the victim’s body was so torn apart, it was impossible to identify,” Mr. Shin said.
Some regional analysts were hesitant to grant full credibility to the report in Chosun Ilbo, a conservative paper.

“In recent years, South Korea media and authorities have been far more skeptical of the weird and wonderful stories coming out of North Korea, such as cannibalism,” said Michael Breen, a biographer of Kim Jong-il.

“This is the first juicy story about Kim Jong-un, and it is almost certainly from low-grade intelligence that got distorted in the telling. But there is a constituency that wants to believe it.”

Still, Mr. Breen did not dismiss the report entirely. “Who knows?” he said. “It may be true.”

Wow. After reading that, my mind was blown away.
I knew it had to suck to live in N. Korea, but now I know it can really suck if you're in the military. But really, drunk on a mourning period?? That's why? That's a ridiculous reason to execute somebody, let a lone by a mortar team. Something tells me Mr. Kim threw a b**** fit JUST BECAUSE it was his dad. C'mon, man. What a douche. Still, I'd rather have that than a firing squad. At least you won't live long enough to feel any pain when you're blown to bits. Still, that sucks. And I like one of the comment puns from where I got this:

"When that officer found out he was going to be executed I hear he fell to pieces." (last edited by Cyro Xero on 03-23-12 11:00 PM)

That's pretty intense yo. But I guess that's North Korea for ya. They're pretty crazy up there. I'll bet it was more because he wanted to show is might than because it was his father though. In a dictatorship like that, you have to prove that you mean business, you know?

yeah, I'm not surprised by actions like this.

First off, the guy is 20. 20 year old's aren't exactly the most logical or rational or nice if they can wield nearly unlimited power.

Second, the move was brilliant considering his situation. He's a dictator in a country and would probably have slipped into a civil war if he hadn't started ruling like this right away. Whether it was his idea or an adviser telling him to it should solidify him as ruler for a while.

If this move, as Geeo states, was for Kim Jong-un to solidify his position after his father, I can understand that. But what is the reaction of North Korea citizens? I cannot be the norm for them, can it? I guess my problem is an inability to understand the thoughts of someone who has grown up in a Communist country --and quite frankly I do not think I ever want to understand. If this is how Kim Jong-un will treat people within his country, then we definitely have a treat to our own safety.

This is why no one should join the military, keep your power to yourself don't give it away to evil dictator suitmen.

Sigh... another day another overpowered tyrant named the Korean Military.

Yeah.

I'm really not interested in the Korean Military, nor will I ever be. Good thing I'm not Korean. Eh?
