    Lol, yes in his stampede to deflect his criticism away from North Korea and over to the US I don't believe he really thought about if his statement actually made any sense.
    Blind dissent is as foolish as blind patriotism.

    I wonder if Jang was killed for "liberal" policies he was trying to push through and for his "hate" of North Korea.

    However if a country is going to have one, it seems more humane to do it in a timely manner, than to drag it out decades like we do.



    From what I have read about this the North Koreans didn't waste any time on appeals, last meals on anything else.

    They had a quick trial, found the guy guilty and put a bullet in his head.

    No fuss, no muss.

    It does seem to have a few flaws.

    We'll never know but it's nice to think that there are still those who could possibly value Liberty over authority in the North Korean government.



    You can think whatever you want to think but there are no indications that what you say is correct.

    I agree, the person who is about to be executed might not be in a big hurry for it to happen.

    Some people don't see being locked up for the rest of their lives as a reward.

    But some don't worship the things that they didn't do.

    Like freeing the slaves or giving women the vote for a couple of examples.

    I don't agree that the enlightened course is to reward serial rapist/murderers for rape and murder with a carefree assured life of free housing, free food, free medical care, and safety for the rest of their lives. That isn't punishment to some people, it is a better way of life and rewarding them.
