The JoongAng Ilbo said the two men were executed by anti-aircraft gun at a military academy in Pyongyang.

(With all sarcasm here...) Probably need to use a weapon with that large of a caliber, probably miss with something smaller.

Yubari.

I understand the desire to poke fun at the Democratic Republic's military ability And realize that it came with a heavy dose of sarcasm.

Either way, the guys who got exercuted (can we really use that word in this case) are very dead.

Not so bad when compared to Joe Stalin's purges. We hope young Kim don't try to copycat Stalin's purges to solve the food shortages in north Korea.

I think if I was some official over there, I'd purposely fall down some stairs to bow out of government service. Harder to hit with antiaircraft weapons when you're lying down.

A true sign of a fragile system. Execution by anti-aircraft fire of a man who felt sleepy while meeting with the Supreme Botchan.

What puzzles me is how long are the people of the World going to allow this "creep" to stay in power?

If China hadn't signed a treaty to prorect them in 1961 I doubt the Kims would be be in power today.

And what do you suggest, invasion of a sovereign nation, to execute its leader?

Look how well that worked with Iraq.
