A Boy Named Kim

By Mahons On February 17th, 2017

All the poor guy wanted to do was go to Disneyland in Tokyo.  The half-lunatic half-brother of the full-lunatic leader of North Korea was murdered in a Malaysian Airport by two female agents.  Details are somewhat fuzzy.  CSI Malaysia is having its pilot episode, and it looks like the poor bastard (no pun intended) was poisoned somehow.  A quicker death than many North Koreans who simply starve to death.

Back in 2001 he was caught trying to visit Tokyo’s Disneyland under a false passport, bringing shame to his Dad who was otherwise shameless about running a crackpot nuclear military dictatorship.  It appears to have removed him from consideration for the Dear Leader succession when his pop finally kicked the bucket and his demented brother took over the role.

The only crazier family reunion would be the Manson Family.  As a child his father is said to have been devoted to him, but grew disenchanted when the son displayed signs of capitalist influence while schooled abroad in Switzerland.

I would think one would be more on guard if one’s half-brother was the raving bad hair life leader of a nation of racist dwarfs who is known for executing rivals, including family.  When a blood relative wants to make you a bloody relative it is time to make other plans for Thanksgiving Dinner (the North Korean version, catering by the Borgias instead of Martha Stewart).

I hope it turns out that he made it to Tokyo Disney before his bucket was kicked.  Even a boy named Kim deserves some happiness before he goes.

  1. I think that he was on guard.

    I believe that he sent a note to the communist monarch saying that he wished to be left alone and that he was no threat to either the leader or the regime.

    Communists don’t leave you alone.

  2. At least it wasn’t an ice-pick.

    Superb, Mahons.

  3. Trotsky, yes

  4. LOL – As usual, top quality stuff, Mahons.

  5. Marvellous.

  6. that family should perform the last scene of Hamlet

  7. Hitchens was a rat.

  8. Christopher Hitchens was one of the loudest and most consistent voices for war in Iraq and Afghanistan and wherever someone called Abdul could be found.

    His brother, who opposed the wars, is apparently the demented one.

  9. He was right on Afghanistan, wrong on Iraq.

    Some are wrong all the time, and they don’t have his deep eloquence either.

  10. he was right on both

  11. “deep eloquence”

    Is this a piss take? He was a foul-mouthed oaf.

  12. I thought that the man was a brilliant iconoclast, so very interesting to listen to.

  13. I went to a ‘debate’ he appeared in in Dublin years back. All I saw was misplaced intellectual snobbery, petulance, and foul language.

  14. I see that China will be halting imports of coal from North Korea.

    This trade represents 40% of N Korea’s exports.

    This is significant

  15. Very significant. I wonder what’s behind this move.

  16. I think that they have long been unhappy with North Korean antics, but that they have held back due to a fear of regional instability

    The last straw here might be the murder of the half brother of Kim Jong Un.

    The NYT reports that China is unhappy with this murder, that they looked on the victim with favor

  17. thought that the man was a brilliant iconoclast, so very interesting to listen to.

    I thought Hitchens was interesting to listen to as well. Wasn’t he a reformed Trot?

  18. Petr, I’ll be seeing some of your friends tonight. The “Coalition of the Revolution” i.e. university kids, will be protesting at a Republican dinner I’m going to. The Governor of Texas is speaking, and he has a multitude of policies that they don’t like.

    He was a savage opponent of religion, who spoke truth to Islam

  20. That’s what I mean Phantom. C. Hitchens could speak off the cuff in the most entertaining way. He got his point across that monotheism is bollocks, and I was laughing!

  21. Roe vs Wade post anyone : keflicks or vangelics carismatiks ??

  22. Jude,

    Interesting. The piece does mention that she turned against abortion in her later years, but does not mention she was converted to Catholicism by the late Rev. Father Edward Robinson, O.P. a high school teacher of mine. He was known as the father of the pro-life movement in Dallas.

    University kids 🙂

    http://www.foxnews.com/us/2017/02/17/wisconsin-students-group-demands-free-tuition-for-black-students.html

    The student government at the University of Wisconsin-Madison said on Wednesday that black students should be offered free tuition and housing because blacks were legally barred from education during slavery and university remains out of reach for black students today.

    But the Chinese just don’t get it……

    Chinese graduate student Yuhong Zhu said the resolution is awkward and he’d rather see more scholarships than a blanket offer of free access.

    “I wouldn’t appreciate if the school offered me free tuition just because I’m a minority,” he said. “We should at least have to work hard for it.”

    Not just hard work – brains are needed too, and that’s why no matter how much money is poured into ‘black education’, there will never be results from IQs south of 80

    And of course he was a mortal enemy of both Clintons as well

    I saw him as a true intellectual – he did not adhere to any political or other doctrine -his opinion was his own, and reach only after a real internal debate
