    who was accused of having attempted to overthrow the state "by all sorts of intrigues and despicable methods."

    well there you have it, a clear indictment/trial, and execution all nicely rolled out as a 'package'

    wonder how kangaroos survive in N. Korea?

    I wonder whether or not US intelligence had attempted to stage a last-minute rescue of Song-thaek, or even considered the possibility of doing so. He would have been a valuable asset in terms of gaining a fuller understanding of the North Korean nuclear program, as well as expanding our knowledge of North Korean politics and life in general.

    Having said that, it's actually refreshing to hear of a national leader holding his uncle to account when he breaks the law rather than looking the other way and lying about it, the way our president does.
    Ignorance at its best. KJU is no sociopath. I suspect that you don't even know the difference between sociopath and psychopath.
    As for the highlight: Jang was purged as part of a power struggle and consolidation. While some of his charges may have been true, he was not executed for them.
    For the final flavor, add the usual partisan attack.

    After reading a diverse range of theories, yours is the first to actually suggest that Jang was executed due to his charges, or that KJU had actually done something good.
