Étant en convalescence, j’ai eu à subir le flux itératif et formaté des médias mainstream et c’est à ce moment que je tombe sur une information délirante concernant une supposée exécution du ministre nord-coréen de La Défense.

D’après les médias mainstream, Hyol Yong Chol, ministre nord-coréen et l’un des faucons du régime de Pyongyang, aurait été exécuté le 30 avril 2015 par un obus de canon antiaérien pour « Haute Trahison ». L’information a subi une légère modification puisque initialement certains médias ont évoqué une exécution au missile antiaérien…un peu mieux ou pire qu’une exécution au mortier (comme cela fut évoqué lors d’un canular précédant)

Pour épicer un peu l’histoire, l’on apprend que ce pauvre ministre aurait été mis à mort pour s’être assoupi lors d’un discours ou encore d’avoir répondu à Kim Jung Un…Dans le genre hilare, ils pouvaient nettement mieux faire.

Les journalistes qui répètent de telles inepties n’ont probablement…

Je ne sais strictement rien de la Corée du Nord si ce n’est et c’est déjà beaucoup l’atrocité de la guerre qu’ils ont subie et qui laisse loin derrière elle les atrocités de la guerre du Vietnam… Mais je n’ai aucune confiance dans les nouvelles qui périodiquement nous parviennent de ce pays et qui toutes sont destinées à nous montrer un dictateur puéril et grotesque… Je n’ai pas plus confiance dans le système politique du sud, ses dictatures sanglantes et aujourd’hui un régime oppressif que dans le régime de la Corée du Nord. De surcroit les nouvelles qui nous parviennent le plus souvent relayées par l’empire Murdoch viennent toutes d’une presse sud-coréenne qui bidouille sans état d’âme toute l’information.

JOINT BASE LEWIS-McCHORD, Wash. (AP) – Two Americans released from captivity in North Korea returned to the United States Saturday night, landing at a Washington state military base after their departure was secured through a secret mission to the reclusive Communist country by the top U.S. intelligence official.

Matthew Miller of Bakersfield, California, and Kenneth Bae of Lynnwood, Washington, arrived at Joint Base Lewis-McChord around 9 p.m. PST. U.S. officials said the pair flew back with James Clapper, the director of national intelligence.

Bae, surrounded by family members, spoke briefly to the media after the plane carrying him and Miller landed.

« I just want to say thank you all for supporting me and standing by me, » he said.

He thanked President Barack Obama and the many people who supported him and his family. He also thanked the North Korean government for releasing him.

« It’s been an amazing…

Des travailleurs nord coréens travaillent 18 heures par jour, au Qatar, pour construire la ville de la Coupe du monde 2022, et ils ne voient jamais l’argent de leur salaire : il est envoyé à Kim Jong-Un.

Beaucoup s’imaginent qu’ils toucheront un gros magot quand ils retourneront au pays.

North Korea: Deploying new nuclear-capable vessel would significantly increase threat to South Korea and US

North Korea has launched a domestically built submarine that is designed to fire ballistic missiles, raising new concerns about the growing threat posed by Pyongyang’s missile and nuclear programmes.

Military sources in South Korea say the vessel is based on a Golf II-class Soviet submarine that the North acquired in 1993, ostensibly for scrapping. The 3,500-ton Golf II was equipped with submarine-launched ballistic missiles that could carry a 2,600 lb warhead more than 880 miles.

And although the Soviet-era vessel is obsolete and the Russian Navy insisted it could never return to service, North Korea is believed to have spent the last 20 years examining and replicating its missile launch system, which included the launch tubes…

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un

Charges of bribery and watching TV are used to justify North Korea’s continued purge of senior officials

Ten officials of North Korea’s Workers Party have been shot dead for charges ranging from graft to watching South Korean soap operas.

According to Lim Dae Sung, an aide to ruling South Korean Saenuri Party lawmaker Lee Cheol Woo, the latest deaths are part of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un’s round of purges to erase his dead uncle’s influence.

It was in December that Kim had his uncle Jang Song Thaek killed over charges of factionalism, graft and sexual misconduct, reports Bloomberg.

Kim recently put in an appearance after many weeks following surgery to remove a cyst, amidstspeculations on his long absence.

The leader has consolidated his power through purges, including the removal, two years ago, of Vice Marshall Staff Ri Yong Ho who guided him in the succession process.

Kim exercises control over North Korea’s 1.2 million troops and a nuclear arms programme, after taking over the 24-million-strong nation from his father Kim Jong-il who died in 2011.

He has recently replaced many army commanders and demoted some for poor performance of artillery.

Kim, who is a fan of western cartoon shows and characters like Winnie the Pooh, Tigger and Minnie Mouse, has not taken kindly to a Western action-comedy movie that depicts an attempt to assassinate him. He has pledged to “mercilessly destroy” anyone associated with the movie.

Meanwhile, a thawing of relations between North and South Koreas was offset by anti-Kim leaflets sent over the border, to which South Korea responded by saying it has no control over public opinion.

Kim had recently threatened to strengthen the country’s nuclear programme following the memoirs of a former CIA director which takes a strong line against Pyongyang.

PYONGYANG, North Korea (AP) — Japanese and North Korean officials held talks in Pyongyang for the first time in 10 years Tuesday, meeting to assess progress into North Korea’s investigation into the fates of Japanese citizens who were abducted in the 1970s and ’80s.

The abduction issue has long been a major obstacle in the frosty ties between the two nations, which have no formal diplomatic relations.

WATCH: Relatives of Japan abductees see probe as ‘last chance’ to rescue loved ones

The Japanese delegation, led by Junichi Ihara, head of the Asia and Oceania affairs bureau at Japan’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, is to stay in North Korea for four days.

After years of denial, North Korea acknowledged in an unprecedented 2002 summit between Kim Jong Il and then-Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi that its agents had kidnapped 13 Japanese, mainly to train spies in Japanese language and culture. It allowed…
