has been executed by anti-aircraft fire

Because it is more graphic?

-1 ( +0 / -1 )

That's terrifying how they make hundreds of other officials witness brutal executions. What thugs!

Anti-aircraft fire? That's way extreme.

Collapse of the power structure could lead to anything there.

Is there anything left to a human body after being shot with anti-aircraft guns? Aren't they huge?

theres actually been many executions of NK top officials during the past month. Kim Jong-Un is killing off anybody whos seen against him. this is the type of crazy Japan is dealing with. do you really think theyll get any closure on the abducted Japanese ... i doubt it. oh and this loon has a couple of A-bombs at his disposal

Maybe his evilness will become so apparent to the people that they will be united and put an end to him.

It's a bit hard to feel sorry for him.

This psychopath has access to nuclear weapons. How long more until the world can be rid of this stain?

Heads are rolling in NK since Kim Jong Un came to power. The use of AA-guns to execute a human show the particularly sadistic side of that nutjob. On the positive side: In the near future nobody wants to enrol for being in an important leading position anymore in NK.

They probably don't have any other ammo.

He was obviously flying too high for L'il Kim's liking. How he could possibly disrespect the dear leader is a mystery http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/picturegalleries/worldnews/10521123/Kim-Jong-un-in-pictures-The-bizarre-photoshoots-of-North-Koreas-leader.html#?frame=3225890

if they are executing an innocent man, I will feel bad... but this guy was also responsible for the suffering of North Korean people, he should be skinned alive then throw in a pool of squeezed lemon... so I dont feel any sympathy at all... it just a matter of time till Kim Jong Un faces the same faith! and I pray he will!

The guy was a dead man whether they used anti-aircraft guns or regular guns -- it's just the idea that's horrifying. Extreme overkill. But, one the other hand, you can pretty much guarantee that one shot and you're out of your misery, unlike a regular hand gun or rifle, which might require more and not be instant.

Of course this is only a report from the South Korean intelligence agency.

Maybe his evilness will become so apparent to the people that they will be united and put an end to him.** yep and that uprising will make Tiananmen square masacre look like a picnic.

So when they mean Anti Aircraft guns are they on about the MGs fitted to AFV commander cupolas, or flak? Either way it's brutal and vicious. Kim really is a monster.

-2 ( +0 / -2 )

Anti-aircraft fire, or flamethrower? Decisions, decisions.

1 ( +1 / -0 )

I hope that one day Lil Kim meets the same fate.

-1 ( +0 / -1 )

Do they launch the guy with a catapult and shoot him in the air? PULL! Well, the North Koreans have always made a habit of cracking eggs with a sledge hammer.

the MGs fitted to AFV commander cupolas

what's that in English?

1 ( +1 / -0 )

North Korea is currently a state of a one free man and that man is no one other than Kim Jong Un himself. Even with good intentions, his actions are simply a sabotage towards his own people.

Sense.

The Machine Guns(MG) fitted to Armored Fighting Vehicles(AFV) commanders Copulas(hatches).

Not really anti aircraft weapons but they could shoot one down if lucky.

This act highlights how insecure Kim Jong Un and his cronies are. It is also a telling sign that a power struggle is gaining strength. Just like we saw from Daddy, we can expect belligerent actions and tantrums aplenty in the near future. It is the people of North Korea who continue and will continue to suffer, many going hungry while the ball-of-fat desperately clings to power to feed his unsightly belly and all that goes with it. As the world is growing increasingly impatient, incoming U.S. Republicans will all but lose patience. History is our best guide and so an ending is become increasingly on the agenda.

What a bizarre way to kill someone! This North Korea regime wont be around for to long. Most likely by the end of the this decade there wont be a North Korea.

1 ( +1 / -0 )

Kim gives a new meaning of getting fired. A wretched regime that will benefit the world by collapsing.

1 ( +1 / -0 )

Stalin Jong Un probably didn't order the execution. The real people in charge did, and Un,the apprentice czar, as usual, just went along for the ride. Whoever becomes the next USA president will not do anything about him.

@JapanGalMAY. 13, 2015 - 11:38AM JST Is there anything left to a human body after being shot with anti-aircraft guns? Aren't they huge?

==========================================================================

Probably his body was put in a huge cage wtrh hungry dogs waiting. Remind you, after he gained power, his uncle became a dog food.
