In the sad dictator state that is North Korea, the word of leader Kim Jong-un is law.
The supreme leader has a history of making sweeping purges and executions of his top leadership staff (he once had a security minister executed by flamethrower), as well as keeping the inhabitants of his nation in a state of supreme poverty and hardship. On top of making sure his subjects have limited access to wealth or outside influences, his authorities make sure that nobody says anything untoward about the man labelled, “Outstanding Leader” by state media.
Obviously, looking like he does, Kim Jong-un has been the butt of many a joke and meme since he took over from his father, Kim Jong-il. While it might be funny for Western media agencies, websites and magazines to poke fun at North Korea’s top dog, it seems that some of his own soldiers are now in hot water.
Reports today suggest that a number of military personnel have been arrested, after mocking the controversial dictator. A source told Radio Free Asia that the men involved are set to face severe punishments for their actions: “News of cadres of the second army corps slandering Kim Jong-un reached all the way to the People’s Army’s General Political Bureau, and the arrested cadres are to be severely punished”.
