Did Kim Jung Un throw Jong Song Thaek to the dogs?

“Quan Jue,”execution by dogs. 

Stories like this are hard to verify. The author, Dan Miller, writes “.                                                     As I dozed off, it occurred to me that we in the West are no more familiar ….  with North Korea, than we would be were we trying to understand and analyze goings on at Verne’s center of the Earth. We have never been to the center of the Earth, know very little about it and what we would encounter there would be very different from what we have experienced at home. We probably recognize this. Yet we try to analyze what happens and is likely to happen in North Korea as though we knew as much as there is to know about it                               Please take the accounts of the method of execution used with Jang Song-thaek for what, if anything, they are worth. They seem credible to me. ……It’d be wrong to discount this story completely. Many foreign observers expressed doubt when rumors of Jang’s purge and trial began to circulate and were surprised when the North Korean state news agency published a story not only confirming the purge and adding that Jang had been executed. There are also the widely accepted stories of the horrors from the North Korean prison camp system, some of which are just as horrific and brutal as the story of Jang’s execution.

The Straits Times reports.* that  Jang Song-thaek, Unlcle to the current dear leader and the second in command after Kim Jung Un, was stripped naked and thrown into a cage, along with his five closest aides, They were joined by 120 hounds who had been “starved for three days.” The dogs had their way until the men were “completely eaten up”.

Wen Wei Po says Jong-un and 300 officials attended the execution which lasted more than an hour.

This seems to be happening because Xi Jinping “no longer cares about its relations with the Kim regime,” the Straits Times says. It is an impression enforced by a sternly-worded editorial in

Jang Song-thaek was a leading figure in the government of North Korea. He was married to Kim Kyong-hui, the only daughter of North Korean President Kim Il-sung, and only sister of North Korean General Secretary Kim Jong-il. He was therefore the uncle of current leader of North Korea, Kim Jong-un.

the Global Times – an organ associated with the Chinese Communist Party‘s People’s Daily – that discussed the “backwardness” of North Korea’s political system.  The editorial warned the Chinese government believes the majority of Chinese are disgusted with the Kim regime.

Ultimately, North Korea is a strange place — and sometimes truth is stranger than fiction.

“We’re serious about working with you for what we think is your real ambition — to be a wealthy East Asian country.”
