I hereby nominate North Korean dictator/lunatic Kim Jong Un as the world’s craziest man.
Will I get in trouble for calling him such names?
One of his formerly trusted aides had the bad taste to fall asleep during an event in which Kim was present.
Hyon Yong Chol’s punishment? He was executed — using an anti-aircraft gun to shoot him to death.
South Korean intelligence officials reported the execution that reportedly was witnessed by hundreds of spectators. The official charges leveled against the defense chief were treason and disobeying Kim.
The world is full of loons. Some of them actually sit in places of power. Can there be anyone loonier than the young North Korean dictator who took over upon the death of his father, Kim Jong Il — who himself was no slouch when it came to dictatorial madness.
State Department flack Jeff Rathke said this about reports of the execution: “If they are true, (they) describe another extremely brutal act by the North Korean regime. These reports, sadly, are not the first in this regard.”
Allow me to offer this bit of advice to the State Department: While you are seeking rapprochement with many of our adversaries around the world — and that’s generally a good thing if it’s pursued with care and with hyper-vigilance — do not under any circumstances deal at all with Kim Jong Un. This young man is insane.
