North Korea Defense Minister Executed Via Anti-Aircraft Gun For Sleeping
They say “sleep is the cousin of death”, but cotdamn…
MPs were told Mr Hyon was killed on 30 April by anti-aircraft fire in front of an audience of hundreds, the Yonhap news agency reports.
It said Mr Hyon had fallen asleep during an event attended by Kim Jong-un and had not carried out instructions.
South Korea said a senior military officer was also killed.
The news comes weeks after the reported execution of 15 senior officials.
Among them were two vice-ministers who had challenged Mr Kim over his policies and members of an orchestra, the South’s National Intelligence Agency (NIS) said at the time.
Have you ever seen an anti-aircraft gun? No? Here ya go…
No exactly the type of weapon you would use to kill one solitary man.
Hyon Yong-chol, as defence minister, was as close to Kim Jong-un as it is possible to get.
Such a public and brutal method of execution as obliteration by anti-aircraft gun would emphasise the cost of disloyalty.
Kim Jong-un, like the Wu-Tang Clan, ain’t nuthin’ to f*** with. Unless you’re Dennis Rodman…
