Assassination! What Assassination?

For the last couple of months the news coming out of North Korea is anything but promising…..the rumor mill would have us believe that with the latest missile tests that thew US was in their sights…..

Then Trump and his minions have gone about chest thumping….threats and “promises”…..

It all made the news….and then I read a report about an assassination attempt of Li’l Kim recently……

The beginning of May 2017 was marked by a series of high-profile statements published by the DPRK media on the unmasking of an alleged attempt to topple the country’s top leadership. On May 5, the Ministry of State Security of the DPRK made official statements to this effect. Then on May 11, Deputy Foreign Minister Han Song-ryol stressed that the DPRK Prosecutor’s Office shall “seek the extradition of all criminals involved, including the organizers and instigators of this state terrorism act, based on the laws in force in the country.” The criminals referred to in this statement included former South Korean President Park Geun-hye and former Head of the Special Services of the Republic of Korea Lee Byoung Ho. A little later, the North Korean web portal Uriminzokkiri published a 23-minute YouTube video showing a man admitting to masterminding an assassination attempt on Kim Jong-un.

Sifting through the North Korean official narrative is difficult enough, but if we leave out the threats of the “Korean-style anti-terrorist attack aimed at wiping away the conspiracy plots of the intelligence organizations of the United States and South Korea from the face of the earth,” certain facts become more or less understandable. In June 2014, certain individuals, most likely agents of the CIA and South Korean Intelligence “bribed the ideologically unstable” citizen of the DPRK Kim Seoung-il, who at that time was working as a logger in the Khabarovsk Territory of the Russian Federation, and “turned him into a terrorist full of enmity and revenge against our (DPRK) top leadership,” providing him with USD 20,000 and a satellite phone. The rendezvous was facilitated by Director of the Citizens’ Coalition for the Human Rights of Abductees and North Korean Refugees Doe Hee-jun, who managed to get closer to Kim, bribing him with the money and other niceties.

Did I miss something?

Seems like this would be the headlines here in the West…….it is a report in a Russian leaning journal…..so maybe it was not confirmed….but when has that stopped the media from reporting on something?

Has anyone heard of this report before?

  1. This is ‘news’ to me, chuq. We get quite a few in-depth reports on the BBC from both the ROK and DPRK, but this is the first time I have heard mention of any attempted assassination.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. I know..I had not heard it either and that is why I posted it….maybe there will be further info out there….it is a pro-Russian site…..so consider the source I guess….chuq

  2. Seems to me that if some attempt were thwarted or messed up in some way the Dear Leader would have taken every opportunity to brag and propagandize about the failed attempt and blame the U.S. or Japan. Does make sense to me all this would have been kept quiet.

    1. What is more disturbing is y’day’s post “make it dirty” and not many bothered to read….that is the story of the day in my opinion….chuq
