    Re: Shocking North Korea Development!

    IMO it is inconceivable that this initiative could have been made without KJU taking credit for it with a full blast of publicity IF KJU is still in power. Therefore KJU has been removed from power.

    He is a homicidal maniac (even his father and grandfather are not known to have murdered any family members) and everyone else was probably afraid he would kill them all before too long.

    BTW Proud South Korean, you ought to know more about what
    might be going on in Korea than the rest of us- do you have any
    thoughts to share?
    I've lost interest in Korean news (mostly the same claptrap anyways like any other news) so I'm a bit off. I've also been very busy and haven't got any time for news. Plus I'm now living in Connecticut so . From what I've seen, this could either be meaningful or another false hope. Honestly there's been countless incidents like this numerous times, it's impossible to guess which one is which. It's like trying to guess which side the coin flip will land on. To be honest though, this does seem promising, but there's no way to tell now.

    I have been following and studying North Korea ever since I was stationed there back in 2006. There have been several reports of power struggles within the North Korean regime. Most of the time its just a byproduct of the media just trying to gain ratings and print headlines. I have also been following the rise of the new leader, Kim Jong Un, and have noticed several interesting things. While watching video of him, I notice an uneasiness about him as if he is not comfortable in his shoes. He does seem, unlike his father, more like a puppet. Kind of like a blind dog being guided by some outside entity. I feel, that Kim Jong Un may not actually be running the show. That is why there was a recent and shockingly public struggle for power between him and his uncle who was executed. It was a battle that Kim Jong Un won, even with the little experience he has as the new leader. Which to me shows the position itself has a lot of clout, no matter who posseses the title. But I feel that may be coming to an end. The current unexpected outreach by Military leaders from North Korea seems to be out of step with the traditional way North Korea deals with the outside world. You would suspect some type of announcement by Kim Jong Un for a meeting, rather then a surprise visit by Military Leaders. It seems to me, this may be a move by the powerful military arm of North Korea to gain some type of credibility and status from under Kim Jong Un. I feel they are taking advantage of his current state of health to gain influence with the south and the international community. Its way to early to tell, but I wonder if Kim Jong Un has fallen deathly ill, has been assassinated or has already died from whatever he was stricken with. I suspect we will know more very soon.
    North Korea should be liberated and the Chinese wouldn't do a damn thing about it.

    The DMZ and "Hamburger Hill" should be destroyed and we should invade North Korea..... Yes they have a huge army - consisting of what tho? most probably don't have guns.... China may get "pissed" but they will do nothing..... North Korea is currently holding innocent people in "camps" and their lack of due process is about as bat**** crazy as the Salem Witch Trials.....Yet we give them food they sell to invest in their nuclear programs?

    Out of all the bat**** crazy totalitarian nations out there and even ISIS North Korea would be the easiest target to take out....

    Destroy the DMZ and they have nothing.

    The weapon systems they have would be more likely to blow themselves up than hit targets but I suppose that is what you hit first.

    Someone once said underestimate your enemy at your own peril.

    You seem to forget Seoul is so close to the DMZ that NK could release a firestorm on that city in a matter of a few minutes that would make any military superiorty moot.

    Well, he was reportedly executed. The story was he and his five closest aids were put in a cage in front of Kim and three hundred other people and completely devoured by 120 ravenous dogs who'd been starved for five days. Sounds a bit over the top, even for Kim. Remember the girlfriend who was supposedly executed? She later resurfaced publicly on state television. And, whatever you think of Dennis Rodman, I put more credibility in him than South Korea's sensationalist media. There's a lot of disinformation fed through it.
