    He probably did it to appease his blood aunt. The wife of the executed uncle. Cheaper than a divorce.

    I read the title as: "Kim Jong Un-executes his Uncle" and looked in to see how he managed it.....

    Prag: Hmm...that does make sense.

    Troy: Hard to undo something like that.

    What's next for the hermit kingdom?

    bangaladesh and NK where bright enough to execute at the same time as Mandela was main news. A good time to bury bad news. Mandela only survived the same fate years ago because of a soft government he lived under. The Current USA would have buried him at sea.

    Why? If they don't want the world to know of the execution, they don't report it on TV or otherwise. Wrote quite an obituary to honour him in the news, ..."despicable human scum Jang, who was worse than a dog, perpetrated thrice-cursed acts of treachery in betrayal of such profound trust and warmest paternal love shown by the party and the leader for him." Does leemo write for them?
    Boon Mee: 'Israel is the 51st State. De facto - but none the less, essentially part & parcel of the USA.'

    That's....a bit....hypothetical, no?
