North Korea’s Kim Jong-un made starving dogs eat naked uncle alive in cage

published on January 4, 2014
Kim Jong-un’s uncle was killed after being stripped naked and fed to a pack of hungry dogs, according to reports in a Chinese state-backed newspaper.

North Korea have already described Jang Song-thaek as “despicable human scum, worse than a dog,” but these reports, appearing in Hong Kong’s Wen Wei Po newspaper, suggest he may have met his end in the jaws of dogs.

The account describes how Jang Song-thaek and five of his aides were stripped naked and fed to 120 hungry hounds, who had been starved for three days. The whole process lasted an hour, and as they were eaten hundreds of officials watched.

The Singaporean Straits Times claims that the brutal account listed alongside a number of other criticisms in the report shows how Beijing is displeased with the changing regime, but currently there is no consistent editorial line in Chinese state media. The method of execution by dogs has also not been confirmed by North Korea.

Previously it had been reported that a number of Jang Song-thaek’s aides were executed with anti-aircraft machine guns.

Aidan Foster-Carter, a senior research fellow in Sociology and Modern Korea at Leeds University, told The Independent: “I put no cruelty past the North Korean regime, but it does sound extreme even for them. In the recent past, they did have an effigy of the South Korean president mauled by dogs.

“However the killing of Jang Song-thaek has been an episode of state terrorism and the fact they did purge him and it was done so publicly shows that the military and Kim Jong-un is trying to warn people not to revolt and how savage punishments can been.

“Although China clearly allows its media and social media to be ruder than in the past this doesn’t mean they are going to stop supporting North Korea.”

Kim Jong-un described the execution of his 67-year-old uncle as the removal of “factionalist filth”, in his New Year message, adding that his purge left North Korea in a much stronger position.

Jang Song-thaek was a key member of North Korea’s first family, a man widely seen as regent to leader Kim Jong-un, In all, at least eight people from Jang’s circle were executed in the purge – alongside the director himself.

    They put Jihadis to shame
    I could not even imagine Koreans indulging in this kind of brutality putting even Jihadis to shame. In the annals oh history, Jihadi terrorists stand out for unimaginable brutality on enemies like Paki army & their leaders do. They mutilated our Jawans part by part torturing the person over a period of weeks before mercifully killing them & making Allah happy. Maun Mohan as usual kept his tail between his legs like his other secular party men did .

    In tune with the demonic ideologoy
    I had been to South Korea and even had the opportunity to visit their border with North Korea. It was a scary scene to see soldiers keeping their fingers on triggers and keeping a constant vigil. One of my South Korean friend said they wish their country become one as before. He said, on both sides people speak the same language, eat same kind of food, no difference in the appearance etc. But the damned politics keeps them divided and fighting each other.

    Political ideologies which appear like religions, namely, Islam, Christianity and Communism compete each other to grab the crown of cruelty. These three dispensations flourish and sustain only by fear psychosis, worst kind of oppressions and the support of blind followers.

    No significance to Hindus/Hinduism
    I wonder what significance this news holds to Hindus/Hinduism which HK stands for. The only parallel I can draw from this news to Hinduism is that of Lord Krishna’s act of killing his uncle Kamsa. But there is a big difference. The killing Mr. Thaek by his nephew represents destruction of evil by the devil while the other represents the triumph of good over evil.
