North Korea: mourning for a dead God-King

When you’re told every hour of every day of your existence that only one brilliant man stands between you and disaster, this kind of reaction to news of his death is expected:

Kim, his father, and their cronies made these people’s lives a Hell on Earth since 1945, a nightmare existence perhaps second only to being stuck in Zimbabwe, and yet they weep and beat their fists on the ground for him. Some of it may be genuine fear for the future, and I’m sure some of it is also fear of what happens if they don’t perform on cue.

And some fools think Orwell wrote fiction.

    I would not be surprised if Kim Jong’s last act was to sign an order to kill all political prisoners so that he would have crowds of crying people who the state run media could lie to the rest of the country about people mourning his death. – Lorica

    After decades of being a little Il, the NK people may find this to be their Un doing.

  3. Drew the Infidel says:

    You never saw anyone so happy they cried?

    Wow! This year has been a fantastic year for ridding the Earth of genocidal maniacs! Gaddafi, bin Laden, and now Kim. Too bad Kim couldn’t have suffered the same miserable death his other two pals did. But then, the good people of the Earth have to take the removal of mass murderers anyway they can. Lets hope this trend continues in 2012.

    I was stationed in South Korea in the ’70s

    North Korea was a very scary place. Children watched puppet shows where American G.I’s killed babies with knives. I remember reports of human cannibalism, about the same time they found this pos on vacation at Tokyo Disneyland.
