The Kim dynasty has ruled over North Korea with a powerful and punishing fist for the last 60 years. Making sure to keep their reign, Kim Jong has recently made an example out of his own uncle, Jang Song-Thaek, by literally feeding him to the dogs, and is now, erasing his bloodline from existence.
Not too long ago we reported that Kim Jong’s own uncle attempted a coup, and after finding out about Jang Song-Thaek’s intentions, he made sure to make example out of his own family member. Jong was reported to have ordered that his uncle be torn apart by a pack of ravaging dogs.
Since then, the brutal dictator has taken to purging his uncle’s relatives from the world. Apparently, Jong has ordered that Jang’s family be rounded up and either killed or banished.
According to reports, he has executed, “Jang’s sister Jang Kye-Sun, her husband and Ambassador to Cuba Jon Yong-Jin and Jang’s nephew and Ambassador to Malaysia Jang Yong-Chol, as well as his two sons.”
The Daily Mail also reports, “The children and grandchildren of Jang’s two brothers are also said to have been killed.” Apparently he is saving banishment for those who actually married into the family and do not directly share the bloodline.
Jong is acting in true, “guilt by association” fashion where he is punishing anyone that crosses him as well as their families. Apparently killing the widespread family is just a public demonstration that is more of a warning for other’s perhaps thinking of doing something similar.
Too bad for the innocent family members that must dies to ensure a ruthless dictator remain in power.
South Korean reporters—keep in mind here that they are strongly anti-North Korea—explain, “All relatives of Jang have been put to death, including even children.” They go on to reveal that sources have told them, “The executions of Jang’s relatives mean that no traces of him should be left.”
One final source conveys, “The purge of the Jang Song-thaek people is under way on an extensive scale from relatives and low-level officials.”
As the dictator’s minions carried out his commands, anyone being torn from their house that resisted, was immediately shot on the spot. A witness told reporters, “Some relatives were shot to death by pistol in front of other people if they resisted while being dragged out of their apartment homes.”
On a different note, a newspaper has revealed that, “Chosun Ilbo, Ri Yong-ho, Kim Yong-chun, U Tong-chuk, and Kim Jong-gak, all part of his father Kim Jong-il’s inner circle, were handpicked to groom the 31-year-old leader, but have since disappeared or been demoted.”
It appears as if the threatening man is sick of being told what to do and feels ready to act in a way he deems appropriate. It’s really a shame as when he first came to power there was hope that foreign relations between America and North Korea may just actually change.

Unfortunately his father’s henchmen were able to brainwash him soon enough. This, in hand with the limitless power proved to be too much for the young “leader” to handle as he, just like his father, have taken to empty threats against the U.S.
