Except no one has been machine gunned at Guantanamo. At least as far as you know.

Well apart from the nine deaths by various means to date there I guess the rest are cursed to die of old age in captivity never having been tried or convicted of anything.

Kim Jong Un’s prolonged absence from public view, including skipping a session of parliament, has raised questions as to whether his disappearance has less to do with his health and more to do with his grip on power in nuclear-armed North Korea.

Kim has not been seen in public since Sept. 3, an unusual stretch in a country where media provide a steady stream of propaganda images featuring the Supreme Leader overseeing everything from missile launches to grain harvests. While official media reports say Kim is suffering “discomfort,” his seclusion has sparked discussion about who is in charge of a country that boasts 1.2 million troops and has threatened to turn Seoul into a sea of fire.

I have it via a very reliable source, that this was done after extensive practice time on MSFS, with no other training!

Kim Jong Golf game makes it impossible not to score a hole-in-one

A golfing video game where you get to play North Korean leader Kim Jong-un is fixed so that no matter what you do, you always score a hole-in-one.

The game seems to be making reference to Kim's father Kim Jong-Il, who famously picked up a golf club in the 1990s for the first time in his life and scored an INCREDIBLE 11 holes-in-one in an 18-hole golf course.

At least, that's what the North Korean state news agency would have you believe.

This record-breaking achievement was witnessed by 17 security guards.
Satisfied with the round, Kim immediately retired from the game - leaving the likes of Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy and Sergio Garcia trailing behind forever more.

Now you can step into his son's shoes to play a round of golf as the Glorious Leader. Try it for yourself here.

The handsome haircut sent me back to the internet where I found this discussion about the Great One's shiny IL-62:


It’s Air Force Un! North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un gets his own private jet – and officials say leader ‘likes steering aircraft’ despite not being a qualified pilot

A photo, published in the official North Korean daily newspaper Rodong Sinmun, shows for the first time the luxury Russian IL-62 jetliner that carries Kim and his wife Ri Sol-ju on official engagements around the secretive country.

At first glance, the aircraft bears some similarity to the US President's personal jet, bearing as it does North Korea's official name and flag and a star symbolising Kim on its tail, South Korea's Chosun Ilbo newspaper reported today, quoting the North's paper.

North Korea modified submarine missile launch photos, says U.S. official

Image
Photographs showing a North Korean missile launched from a submarine were manipulated by state propagandists and the country may be years away from developing such technology, analysts and a top U.S. military official said on Tuesday.

North Korea, sanctioned by the United States and United Nations for its missile and nuclear tests, said on May 9 it had successfully conducted an underwater test-fire of a submarine-launched ballistic missile which, if true, would indicate progress in its pursuit of missile-equipped submarines.
* * *
“They have not gotten as far as their clever video editors and spinmeisters would have us believe,” said Winnefeld, who is vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

Analysis seen by Reuters from German aerospace engineers Markus Schiller and Robert Schmucker of Schmucker Technologie appeared to support Winnefeld’s statement.

The Munich-based pair said photos of the launch were “strongly modified”, including reflections of the missile exhaust flame in the water which did not line up with the missile itself.

North Korea, which regularly threatens to destroy the United States, had a record of offering faked proof to claim advances in missile technology, Schiller and Schmucker said, such as poorly built mockups of missiles on display at military parades in 2012 and 2013.

Where's the check-un desk? North Korean leader opens Pyongyang's shiny new international airport terminal (an important building in the world's least visited country)

Image
Excerpt:
North Korea's gleaming new airport terminal is set to open July 1, state media announced on Thursday.

It's said to have been partly demolished and rebuilt at the request of leader Kim Jong-un in 2012 as he believed that the existing terminal was considered too small and shabby compared with foreign rivals.

But the facility, reserved for international civilian flights, risks being virtually empty after it opens as Pyongyang has just a trickle of scheduled foreign flights.

Kim Jong Un is upset by loudspeakers.....

A war between North and South Korea 'could go nuclear,' experts warn
[excerpt]
Kim Jong-un has ordered North Korea's troops to be on a war footing as tensions with South Korea escalate following an exchange of shells - follow the latest updates

14.55
These are the loudspeakers which are at the centre of the bitter row between North and South Korea which today risks escalating to a state of war. They were installed by South Korean authorities at an unidentified site on the western frontline bordering North Korea. They have been blaring out propaganda since August 11.


14.23
"Business as usual" for British man based in Pyongyang as North Korea threatens war

"The situation has been on the news here this evening and everybody knows about it, but I can't say that anyone is acting any differently", a British national who is presently in Pyongyang told The Telegraph's Julian Ryall.

"I was at a schoolboy football match this afternoon between a North Korean team and a South Korean team and there did not seem to be any sort of tension in the 20,000-strong crowd," he said.

"Nobody that I have encountered appears to be acting with any added sense of urgency and it does appear to be business as usual", he added. "We have to bear in mind that tensions between the North and South are not uncommon, although this situation does appear to be a bit more serious".

14.01
Korean Central News Agency says it has mobilised troops who are "ready to attack" South Korea.

It said in a statement: "The Korean People's Army (KPA) front-line large combined units entered into a wartime state all at once, fully armed to launch surprise operations, and wound up their preparedness for action.""


13.40
The United Nations has spoken of its "serious concern" about North Korea in a statement released this afternoon. US State Department spokeswoman Katrina Adams said:

Quote
The United States remains steadfast in its commitments to the defense and its allies, and we will continue to coordinate closely with the ROK (Republic of Korea).


13.10
If North Korea launches fresh provocation, it will face "searing" consequences, Han Minkoo, South Korean defence minister has said.

AP report that he said: "This time, we'll cut off a vicious circle of North Korean provocation."

Mr Han said his country was working with the US to deter any further aggression by North Korea after describing the shelling earlier as "mean criminal acts that reveal the bellicosity" of North Korea.


12.35
North Korea v South Korea: What we know so far
1 Last night South Korea was told to stop playing propaganda through loudspeakers
2 South Korea refused, prompting threats of an artillery strike from North Korea
3 South Korea reacted by firing around 30 rounds across the border
4 On Friday morning North Korea threatened to reduce Seoul to a "sea of fire" and has mobilied forces at the border
5 Kim Jong-un has threatened open warfare if Seoul does not back down by 5pm local time on Saturday

1. Bump.

2. I note some interesting and relevant ironing in the previous post, some years ago.

3. Should Monchavo try to figure out how to merge this with the thread in the political forum named "Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton"?

4. We certainly live in interesting times...and there may be something to be said for procedures and fundamentals here.
