US President Donald Trump seems quite taken with the controversial and erratic Asian leader. Although the American head of state may believe that North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un is a great guy who truly cares for his people, a large number of North Koreans will beg to differ. Although they dare not utter their views publicly. Especially after the latest cruelty exhibited by the unpredictable Asian leader. He reportedly ordered a high ranking army officer to be executed after he was accused of giving extra food and fuel rations to troops and their families.
According to a report by Daily NK, Hyon Ju Song, the lieutenant general of the Korean People’s Army in the country’s capital, Pyongyang, was unceremoniously executed by a firing squad for “charges of abusing authority and engaging in anti-Party acts.” The interpretation of these heinous sounding charges are that he handed out extra food and fuel rations without proper authorization.
Here is a statement made by the late Army officer before his demise; “While checking the oil supplies for the Sohae Satellite Launching Station during the comprehensive inspections of wartime supplies on April 10, Hyon stated, ‘We no longer have to suffer and tighten our belts to make rockets or nuclear weapons.’
Of course this was seen as an abuse of authority and a treasonous statement that opposed the Party’s military-first policy,” Not a good place to be especially if you are a high ranking and influential officer. North Korea isn't a place where you openly get too big for your shoes.
