    A bloody purge in North Korea following the sudden death of leader Kim Jong-il late last year saw barbaric methods including mortar rounds used to execute high-ranking military officials, a South Korean government source said Wednesday.

    "When Kim Jong-un became North Korean leader following the mourning period for his father in late December, high-ranking military officers started disappearing," the source said. "From information compiled over the last month, we have concluded that dozens of military officers were purged." The source added Kim Jong-un ordered loyal officials to "get rid of" anyone caught misbehaving during the mourning period for Kim Jong-il.

    But contrary to reports that an assistant chief of the Ministry of the People's Armed Forces was put in front of a firing squad for being drunk during the mourning period, he was executed using a mortar round in line with Kim's orders to leave "no trace of him behind, down to his hair."

    The source said the official was placed on the spot where the round would hit, and the grisly execution obliterated him.

    Besides the assistant chief and an assistant chief of the General Staff Department, frontline commanders were also executed, the source said.

    Kim Jong-il also purged dissenters after the death of his father Kim Il-sung in 1994. Even those caught for minor infractions were executed by a firing squad.

    But Kim Jong-un's methods appear even more brutal. A source familiar with North Korea said, "It appears that the loyalty pledged by the military did not satisfy the young leader, who is sensitive about his age." Kim junior is 28 or 29.

    The source said the drastic measures may have been proposed by Kim's confidant Kim Jong-gak (62), the first deputy director of the General Political Bureau of the North Korean People's Army.

    This is Communism. This is what Communists do. The new one steps in and executes the old guard for whatever reason they can find. Anything will do. Communists are notorious for murdering their own once they have served their purpose. They don't let them retire. They murder them. Wait and see what Obama will do once this thing gets into full swing. Richard Wurmbrand was in both - a concentration camp and then a communist prison. He said the communists were worse. I think Communists and Nazis are neck and neck on which is worse. But he said the Communists were worse so there you have it. He was in a communist prison for over 17 years before he founded Voice of the Martyrs so I guess he knows what he is talking about, eh? I highly recommend Wurmbrands book Marx & Satan so you can learn about who Karl Marx REALLY was. Not the pseudo version you are fed from your marxist professors. Do your own research. It just might save your life. - Jeremiah

    This is what Obama wants America to look like. He has already adopted North Koreas economic plan. Use prison labor to manufacture and have govt export business. Now he can compete evenly with his Communist buddies. 1.40 an hour for prison pay and he is right in line with Chinese wages now... isn't he a genius????

    Is it any different that obama's decapitation of American military leadership? How many generals has obama fired?

    No wonder an American admiral said that the Navy's primary purpose was to fight climate change. He wants to keep his job.

    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GixKLkai6uA]Dennis Rodman 'This Week' Interview: NBA Basketball Star Discusses Kim Jong Un, North Korea Visit - YouTube[/ame]

    Maybe Obama should try the Rodman doctrine to open up North Korea and the Nixon administration's ping pong diplomacy in the 1970s pacified Communist China and the same diplomatic approach may turn North Korea into a benign Communist country which does not threaten its neighbours and ratcheting up the pressure on Pyongyang only rubs North Korea the wrong way.
