Kim Kyong Hu, sister of the late Kim Jong Il and of course aunt to Kim Jong Un has not been removed from the picture entirely after her husband's purging late last year. The most recent sign that Kim Kyong Hu is still a significant player is her appearing in a documentary recently broadcast on KCNA.
Is that your analysis or simply what most of the news outlets have been posting in the past days?

Whatever one thinks of John Hill, he's clearly not the one toeing the party line. Which appears to upset some people.

No labour camps or political prisoners.

It all depends on whose "party" we are talking about. It seems to me that he has partied with his minders at the Mongolian bar more than once.

Seems to me that Ambassador Hyon Hak Bong has been a little too intimate with a bong.

Life imitates art.

Reading the comments coming from North Korea, I am reminded of the famous "Dead Parrot" sketch by Monty Python. Li'l Kim is very healthy; it's just that he's all shagged out and having a kip. It's not that he's somewhat indisposed, no not at all!

Come on now! Chubby Cheeks suddenly vanishes after having been all over the news from North Korea like a rash, but that shouldn't hint at illness or even house arrest? Well, not to anyone who cannot figure out who started the Korean War, no, but the rest of us must have some reasonable doubts.

Anyone want to bet that a certain someone, a martyr to overwork on behalf of his people, might be getting a ride atop a vintage Lincoln Continental sometime soon, down a Pyongyang boulevard thronged with weeping multitudes?

Or maybe they'll just stuff him and have him seated at the Pyongyang Bowling Lanes overlooking the players as they come and go. Didn't the Ruskies do that to Lenin; left hime lying there observing the masses as they come and go.

How are the North Koreans able to make such an obvious wank a demigod? Are they thick?

Please do. Your contributions are always a good source of further commentary; not that we knew you were around.

Please do send those updates from the Mongolian Bar and the Glorious Bowling Lanes, while away.

It's not like the people have any say on what goes on there, contrary to our esteemed correspondent's reports. Seems to me a few members of the "inner circle" let the little twit do what he wants while they too do whatever they want. Win/win, except when the little wonk eats too much Emmenthaler and starts to keel over. Time to get a new useful idiot/wonk.

Apparently NK is one of the very few countries still using leaded petrol.
Could that perhaps explain the strange aberrations of its leaders?

I don't think that too many people in NK are affected by lead in the gas. However lead at about 1,600 fps may be a different story.

Whew, I was sooooooooooooooooo worried.




I mean if he had gone away, I would have not been able to make so many jokes about the little turd.

"Hey little Un, where did your uncle go?"

"Out to feed the dogs."

Ah, that was a quick trip, now then, back to the DPRK..

The remains of thousands of American soldiers killed in North Korea during the Korean War are in danger of getting lost after being moved from their burial sites because of various construction work, the North said Monday.

The troops’ remains were neglected and “carried away en masse due to construction projects of hydropower stations, land rezoning and other gigantic nature-remaking projects, flood damage, etc.,” a spokesman for the North Korean military said in a statement carried by the official Korean Central News Agency.

I guess this must be Obama's fault.

Nature-remaking? Seriously? Has the little fat one assumed the role of the Creator?

As for whose fault? Lemme see? Could it be the fault if those who enclose themselves in the hermit kingdom and won't allow anyone in or out? But then again if you can't figure out who started the Korean War, how are you expected to figure this one out.
