Kim Jong Un Orders All Defectors Shot

Kim Jong Un Orders All Defectors Shot

Kim Jong Un, who seized power in North Korea following the death of his father Kim Jong Il, recently demonstrated that the regime will not be softening under his rule.

This week, sources reported Kim Jong Un ordered that defectors attempting to flee the country be shot.

A Japanese paper called Sankei Shimbun reported last week that Kim Jong Un issued an order not to let a single defector get away around Dec. 19, when the North announced the death of Kim Jong Il, citing a source supposedly knowledgeable about the North Korea-China border areas.

“Kim Jong-un has ordered intensified control in border areas in recent years since he emerged as successor to his father Kim Jong-il,” a defector-turned-reporter at Open Radio for North Korea, a Seoul-based media organization specializing in the North, told the Korean JoongAng Daily. “And now Kim Jong-un is ordering immediate executions when people are caught trying to cross the borders [without permission].”

Kim Jong Un has reportedly also ordered that three generations of relatives of any defectors are also to be killed — an act that is said to have never been carried out under his father.

The number of North Korean defectors has increased sharply over the past several years as people in the country have suffered food shortages and learned more about other parts of the world.

    Just keep believing all this crap. Next we will hear how Kim personally is shooting random people on the streets. And the readers will believe it all. “sources” claim = reporter didnt want to work, so he made it up

      Tyrants tend to kill messengers too. Thus a lot of stuff ends up being “reliable sources” or “sources”. When those evil republicans get back control and they start using the NDAA to make American Citizens disappear you will find it difficult to get a source to identify themselves. Of course the nice sweet democrats would NEVER use such an ability. That is why ALL of them voted AGAINST the provisions stuck into the NDAA. NOT.

      Demopublicans. Republicrats. The difference is the speed at which they carry us in their hand basket.

    Interesting photo. The head of the person does not seem to be in proportion to the coat. Is that coat somehow special? Like the Kings robes or something?

    • libertytrain

      looks like an older photo to me – like I’d seen it before. Can you interpret the words underneath – I can’t – perhaps Google translate could if I could read the words to type in the translate section – :)

    A word if WARNING: My norton antivirus just detected a web based intrusion in the javascript of the page at the given link “Korean JoongAng Daily.” in the article.

    As I recall, the first ruler of North Korea was looked at as a god. By logical extension, the last ruler was probably seen that way, too. If the current ruler of North Korea is seen as a god, then I don’t understand why ‘defectors’ would be shot.
    Any ruler who is seen as a god [if he IS a god] can kill people without firing a shot. Ergo, if ‘defectors’ will be shot, then it sounds like someone has admitted that ‘God’ no longer rules North Korea. Is it possible that North Korea relies on vacillating, waffling definitions the same way Washington does?
