    North Korean execution by dog?

    North Korean execution by dog?

    Reports sound too gruesome to be true, but in North Korea, anything is possible.

    When I saw this circulating on Twitter, I thought it had to be a hoax. And it still might be.

    But it’s being fairly widely reported, with a Singaporean newspaper the primary English language source.

    Via The Strait Times, Jang’s execution bodes ill for China:

    THE execution of Jang Song Thaek, the No. 2 man in North Korea, took Beijing by surprise and will adversely affect bilateral relations.

    Beijing’s displeasure is expressed through the publication of a detailed account of Jang’s brutal execution in Wen Wei Po, its official mouthpiece, in Hong Kong, on Dec 12.

    According to the report, unlike previous executions of political prisoners which were carried out by firing squads with machine guns, Jang was stripped naked and thrown into a cage, along with his five closest aides. Then 120 hounds, starved for three days, were allowed to prey on them until they were completely eaten up. This is called “quan jue”, or execution by dogs.

    The report said the entire process lasted for an hour, with Mr Kim Jong Un, the supreme leader in North Korea, supervising it along with 300 senior officials.

    The horrifying report vividly depicted the brutality of the young North Korean leader. The fact that it appeared in a Beijing- controlled newspaper showed that China no longer cares about its relations with the Kim regime.

    Here’s the official announcement of the uncle’s arrest with video of him being arrested:

    Update: Too bad to be true? No, Kim Jong Un probably didn’t feed his uncle to 120 hungry dogs:

    Still, the thing about this story and so many others like it from North Korea is that there is a chance, however remote, that it could still be true. Yes, there is an awful lot of evidence suggesting it’s probably false, but this being North Korea, there are also some reasons to allow for its plausibility.

    Baby Kimmy does ALL Communists proud. Lenin’s grinning with pleasure. Stalin is green with envy. Yezhov wishes he could’da done that. Pol Pot is joyful. Castro is ecstatic. Che is belly laughing….
