I've been to S. Korea three times before and remember a medium-large sized city in the South named Kwang Jue. Maybe this whole thing was sloppy reporting but I have to believe that the 31 year old wouldn't engage in a diplomatic head-fake of that immensity.
Still, there is Arraratt, the N. Korean version of the Olympics on steroids. The Korean peninsula is tricky, acid-glazed kind of place.
Al-Qaeda is having a busy weekend in Iraq.
> Kim Jong-Un's uncle was stripped naked and fed to 120 starving dogs as the tyrant watched on, a shocking report has claimed...The human race is better than this and will eventually evolve.
I wish I could agree with you, Anna, but there seems to be no evidence for your claim.
That's incredibly hideous Anna. Couldn't believe it until I googled it.
Kim Jong-Un's uncle was stripped naked and fed to 120 starving dogs as the tyrant watched on, a shocking report has claimed.
An official report in China says Jang was stripped naked and thrown into a cage, along with his five closest aides.
Then 120 dogs, who had been deprived of food for three days, were allowed to eat them in a process called "quan jue", or execution by dogs.
The report added the entire process lasted for an hour, with Kim, 30, supervising it along with 300 senior North Korea officials.
The things that go on on this planet are simply amazing -- from the sublimely beautiful to the most utterly grotesque it seems as if human beings are capable of anything.
This is the worst thing I've heard since reports of political prisoners being buried in the Eritrean dessert in shipping containers where they are tortured to death.
The human race is better than this and will eventually evolve.
just listening to Squaw Valley, Grateful Dawg; was there, and still there when I listen. Wishing you all peace, joy and hope in this new year ... 'once in a while you get shown the light in the strangest of places if you look at it right'.
Sending love to you all.
I watched the webcast from TXR last night, where we got to see Bill Walton, who played Father Time, shaking his bones after midnight. Happy New Year all...
Two points for the Leafs at the Winter Classic would be a great way to start the year.
Go Leafs Go!!!!!
I was asleep by 10!
here's to a great 2014 for all of us.
