Over there, “shooting schedule” means something very different.
Hyon Song-wol, a singer, rumoured to be a former lover of [Kim Jong-un], is said to have been arrested on Aug 17 with 11 others for violating laws against pornography.
The reports in South Korea’s Chosun Ilbo newspaper indicate that Hyon, a singer with the Unhasu Orchestra, was among those arrested on August 17 for violating domestic laws on pornography.
All 12 were machine-gunned three days later, with other members of North Korea’s most famous pop groups and their immediate families forced to watch…
Hyon’s band was responsible for a string of patriotic hits in North Korea, including “Footsteps of Soldiers,” “I Love Pyongyang,” “She is a Discharged Soldier” and “We are Troops of the Party.” Her popularity reportedly peaked in 2005 with the song “Excellent Horse-Like Lady.”
It would be funny if it weren’t absolutely horrible.
Incidentally… Ten years ago, I vaguely recall our friends on the left demanding to know why we were invading Iraq and not North Korea. “Are we the world’s policeman now? Then why pick one evil dictator over another?” If they have similar questions about the relative merits of military action in Syria vs. North Korea, I do hope they keep it to themselves. The NSA is listening, and the IRS is ready and willing to discourage dissent.
The Obama administration is doing everything the left falsely accused Bush of doing, and more. And now you’ll listen to his lies and excuses, and you’ll shut up, and you’ll like it. No jokes about his Nobel Peace Prize, you peasants.
Welcome to Utopia, libs. You won. Enjoy it.
