    The killing of his uncle was unprecedented even by N. Korean standards.

    The New York Times reports that the Jang’s death was the end result of a brutal gun battle between Jang supporters and those of the regime over who controlled key land.

    As the Times tells it, Kim’s forces were ordered to take back control over important fishing grounds that Jang had previously seized, but Jang wouldn’t give it up without a fight. The battle ended in the death of many of Kim’s soldiers. Kim was furious and ordered that Jang’s top aides be executed.

    According to the Times, the two men were killed with antiaircraft machine guns rather than regular guns or rifles.

    Yomiuri Shimbun, a Japanese newspaper, reported that Kim was “very drunk” when he ordered the death of Jang’s men.

    Earlier this month, Jang was executed for allegedly committing treason. Jang’s death came as a shock to many who believed he was a close confidant to Kim. Jang was accused of corruption and substance abuse, among other crimes that could not be verified by Western media.

    It is not in China’s best interest to make him go away.

    Yes those are 2 of the reasons China likes having NK around. They also have having common enemies in S Korea and Japan and we know how that saying goes.
    As for NK and communism, they always were(are) communist in that the collectivist government owns and controls manufacturing, housing, agriculture etc.
    Of course now the crazy Kim’s have created their own version of communism (which is very similar to Stalins), but they call it “Juche” version of socialism.
    Anyways, the point is that neither country’s people are free and in that, N Korea and China have a kinship.

    I think it’s frustrating to you that such an evil regime was built upon communism, but it’s true.
    Communism leads to all kinds of oppressive forms of government.

    Confidant???
    Dictators have only two type of people in their regimes.

    Followers and Competitors

    The Competitors usually wind up more often than not in an unmarked grave.

    Sorry, I must’ve had you mixed up with one of the dozens of communist supporters here.
    I also use logic and reality to back up my Conservative “partisanship”.
