This week, a report like this surfaced and it claims that Kim Jong Un, a man who just recently committed to denuclearizing his country and possibly reuniting with the other half of it, ordered a General to be executed for giving his troops and their families extra food.
The leader was infuriated on discovering the fact that 56-year-old Hyon Ju Song, a Lieutenant General of the Korean People’s Army, had been giving extra rice and corn rations to his troop and their families.
The officer, who was found guilty of profiting the enemy, engaging in anti-Party acts and abusing authority, was shot with 90 bullets by nine military death-row convicts at the firing range of the Kang Kon Military Academy, located in the capital, Pyongyang….
The officer sent out 900 kilograms of fuel, 590 kilograms of rice and 730 kilograms of corn to soldiers at the Launching Station which Kim did not approve of.
“This was considered an anti-Party act violating the Ten Principles for the Establishment of the Party’s One-Ideology System,” a source said, Fox News reported.
“The ideological poisoning that is personal idolization is corrupting the chief personnel in the People’s Army. We must nip the bud of ideological poisoning,” another source quoted Kim as saying.
Note that there are sources, but no photographs or video. All we have is the word of these unknown individuals.
These reports make eye-catching headlines and paint a picture of Kim being an evil dictator. In the west, we have seen them for years. If they are true, it is troubling considering Kim’s recent agreement with President Trump to clean things up in the regime. Executing generals is not really a great way to instill trust with the west.
