I’m sick of having to post videos like this. But it’s all I know to do in response to what little the world knows about the miserable torture and abuse of North Korea’s people by their own government. These outrages call out for a solution, for justice, and for these people to be liberated from the living hell they are experiencing. How bad will it have to get before the world forms a coalition and does something to end the suffering of the North Korean people? We risk losing our own humanity by not taking action to put an end to the wickedness and sadism of the regime of the Kim family, the latest preposterous installment being that of Kim Jong Un. Please: for God’s sake – do something to end this hideous cruelty. Let’s find a way to bring this monstrous evil to an end.

“Although high-ranking leaders, including members of the Kim family, have been deposed before, we haven’t seen anything this public or dramatic since Kim Jong-un’s grandfather Kim Il-sung purged his last major rivals in the late 1950s,” said Prof. Charles K. Armstrong, a North Korea expert at Columbia University and the author of “Tyranny of the Weak: North Korea and the World, 1950-1992.”
Charges were announced by top North Korean officials in the DRNK that Thaek had been planning a military coup against the Un regime, which is doubtful at best. A long laundry list of allegations were made by the DRNK against Thaek to justify his execution to the general populace, including the bizarre allegation that Thaek often “failed to applaud with enough enthusiasm” when in the presence of North Korean leadership.
The blitzkrieg-style execution shows the North is determined to wipe out any potential source of dissidence,” Koh Yu Hwan, a professor of North Korean Studies at Dongguk University in Seoul, said by phone. “More purges are expected.”
Jang has now been airbrushed out of all existing photos and videos, another sign of old school “Josef Stalin style” hardline purges, indicating renewed brutality and the strict over-control of all historical record keeping and official documentation of the new regime of Un.
Cited from the NYT news website: “If Kim Jong-un was sure of his control of power, he would not have needed to execute his uncle,” said Lee Byong-chul, a senior fellow at the Institute for Peace and Cooperation in Seoul. “There will be big and small bloody purges, and at a time like this, desperate extremists may lash out. Pyongyang is no longer safe.”
There is not enough news being broadcast about North Korea in the United States which informs the American people of the truth about the horrific conditions which are taking place in that nation. The horrors of Hitler only went on for a few years. This nightmare of abject human suffering, starvation and death has gone on for decades and the entire world MUST address this situation. This cannot be allowed to continue for another decade while the world turns a blind eye. I found this report today on a UK news website. I want others to know about this. I know this is not a pleasant topic but the magnitude of the human suffering which is going on in North Korea calls out for help from every citizen reporter who has a pulse and gives a damn about human life.
A nurse who defected from leader Kim Jong-un’s regime just three months ago speaks to our reporter. She kneels in prayer below.
The sickening routine was heralded by the loud horns of North Korean Army trucks, followed by the hammering of fists and boots on nearby neighbours’ doors.
Pistol-wielding security thugs would line up villagers, insisting their children stood still and waited for the most obscene street show on Earth.
They would then watch in horror as a soldier dragged out a weeping suspect, who would then be shot in the back of the head at point-blank range.
Choi Eun-Ok, a nurse who defected to the South from leader Kim Jong-un’s regime just three months ago, recalls the horror with a blank expression.
Our translator can barely hear her as she is so used to whispering through fear of eavesdropping spies misinterpreting her conversations.
She says: “I saw hundreds of executions between 1998 and 2005, perhaps as many as three in one week and all of them in the street in front of me and my family.
“This period was when we saw the most regular executions, between 1998 and 2005, when it became really bad.
“Everyone in the village – children and adults – were forced to watch.”
Mrs Choi, 54, fires us a stern look that emphasises the importance of what she is about to say and continues: “Both of my children saw the executions because the soldiers insisted.
“They want to convince everyone at a very early age that they have to obey and they have to witness what will happen if they do not obey.
“I had no choice – each time they came to our home and ordered us all to bring out our children to watch people getting executed.”
What she then tells us exposes the level of cruelty the security forces will descend to as they create a climate of fear.
She says: “The soldiers would shoot the people whilst the victims were wearing thick clothes to keep out the cold.
“At least this meant we would not have to see too much blood.
“But after 1998 they wanted to make the killings more horrifying for us and scare us into not disobeying the system so they forced victims to come out in thinner clothing.
“We could see so much blood. It made us much more fearful.”
It is a measure of how the barbaric system made civilians grateful for small mercies when she holds her head in her hands and says quietly: “It seems awful but somehow killing people in thick clothes seemed less cruel. When they started shooting people in thin clothes sometimes my children would not be able to eat for days they were so disturbed by the executions.
“It was terrible. In recent years there has hardly been any food anyway.”
Slightly-built Mrs Choi is sitting in the home of Pastor Kim Seung-Eun, 48, whose church The Caleb Mission has helped more than 1,000 defectors and refugees escape the hell of North Korea.
Now she lives in a bustling South Korean town outside the capital Seoul but even now she has not escaped the immense cruelty of the place she fled.
She had spent most of her adult life with her husband and latterly their two children, a boy and a girl in the poor town of Gyung Seong, north east of Pyongyang, close to the Chinese border.
Some years ago her son died in a fishing accident, she tells me.
But she fled North Korea to find her daughter, who recently crossed the border to China.
Sadly she learned her daughter had fallen into the hands of Chinese gangsters who sold her on. She has heard nothing about her since.
Over half a million people viewed the exclusive footage on our website exposing the truth that rogue leader Kim Jong-un wants to hide from the outside world.
Our front page story uncovering the appalling existence inflicted on his people was picked up by Daybreak on ITV and was the lead story on Sky News – as well as featuring on ITN, Channel 4 News, Channel 5 News, ABC news in the US and other stations from Denmark to Japan.
Several major newspapers in France and Germany followed up our story which had six million page views on mirror.co.uk.
The chilling video shows a child of around 10 dying of starvation in a gutter while soldiers close by load enough rice on to trucks to feed families for weeks.
As the boy slumps on the grimy curb in his filthy, over-sized army jacket, locals stroll by without a glance.
What could possibly be worse than a nuclear North Korea with Kim Jong Un at the helm? A nuclear North Korea with his goofy older brother, gambling addict Kim Jong Nam, at the helm.
Kim Jong Nam
North Korean refugee Joo Il-Kim bought his freedom from the horrors of North Korea by swimming across a treacherous river in the dead of night to escape into the remote wilds of China back in 2005. He had lived in constant fear of being arrested and either executed in public or sent for the remainder of his natural life to work in the dreaded NK gulags, which it’s estimated more than 200,000 prisoners are slowly being worked and / or beaten to death in North Korea.
Kim Jong Un did not do well in school in Switzerland, had very poor grades and most days did not show up for class until after 12 noon, if he showed up at all. He was absent 40% of the time classes were held. Technically he should have been given a failing grade, and / or expelled for non-attendance, but due to his family’s name he was allowed to remain “theoretically” enrolled in the Swiss Academy. He attended this school under the pseudonym “Pak Un.” Below is a rare photo of the [ much slimmer ] teenage Pak Un in school.
Kim Jong Un’s older half brother and the oldest of the 3 males in the Kim family line of descent is gambling addict Kim Jong Nam.
Jong Nam’s lifestyle habits are so questionable and his spend-a-holic lifestyle so entrenched that the Kim father overlooked him as the next in line to rule the nation, choosing the youngest child, Kim Jong Un instead.
There is yet another mysterious brother between these two, who it is said was too effeminate to rule, preferring wild parties and rock concerts to any interest in governing North Korea. I am looking for photos and more references to the mysterious “middle Kim brother.”
China is purported to be financially supporting the older Kim brother, Kim Jong Nam, with a posh apartment in China for him and suitable quarters for his wife and family. It is rumored that there is now a contingency plan to place this older brother into power in North Korea by China.
Cited: “The financial difficulties started, however, after Kim told Japanese newspaperTokyo Shimbun in an e-mail last month that he has “doubts about how a young successor with some two years (of training as heir) can retain the 37 years of absolute power” wielded by his father who died on Dec. 17.
Kim’s youngest brother, Jong-un, has taken the helm of Pyongyang in line with their father’s plans to continue the hereditary power transition in the communist North.
Pyongyang cut off its funds to Kim Jong-nam as a punishment for his remarks, while China likely followed suit to avoid any conflict with the new Kim Jong-un regime, the Russian paper said.
The paper also offered an explanation for China’s support of Kim Jong-nam so far, saying Beijing was apparently making contingency plans to seat him in power.”
“Kim Jong-un accepted an order from his father to break up with Hyun ahead graduating from the Kim Il-sung Military University. At that time, Hyun married her current husband,” the defector said. “I believe that she has continued her relationship with Kim at the request of the latter although she is married.” The defector said that Hyun’s husband is an officer of the Guard Command.”
