Latest News From Norkiland (Updated)

| February 15, 2017

It seems that Kim Jong-Nam, the half-brother of Fatty Kim da T’ird, has been killed by two Norkish women assassins at an airport  in Malaysia. One of those women is currently being held for questioning by the local polizei.

The Norks have a long history off attempts to assassinate people they perceive as targets, including Park Chung-Hee, the then-president of South Korea in 1968. In fact, more than 90 South Koreans were killed in that attempt, showing us that such diplomacy is not exactly a recipient-friendly style.

There are several other incidents  related in this story about this most recent attempt, including an attempted assassination of Pres. Chun Doo-Hwan during a visit to Burma in1983. His vehicle was delayed in traffic, which saved his life, but seventeen South Korean officials and 7 Burmese nationals were killed in this attempt.

The Norks will also engage in revenge killings if some important Nork decides to defect, as happened in 1997.  When Hwang Jang-yop, a senior politician, defected to South Korea in 1997, another prominent defector, Yi Han-yong, was shot in the head by suspected North Korean assassins. He was the nephew of Song Hye-rim, who is Kim Jong-nam’s mother.  Loose connection? I think not!

It appears that this recent murder of one of Fatty Kim da T’ird’s many half-brothers is simply following in the footsteps of Daddy Kim Jong-Il and Grandpa Kim Il-Sung.

Do we have anything to worry about over here? Kind of.

Norkiland successfully launched a ballistic missile last week. The Pukguksong-2 missile (oh, quit laughing!) is analysed to have a range of 750 to 1,800 miles, not quite far enough to get to California where it might improve the real estate somewhat, but enough to be a nuisance. I did try to translate that name and the computer started snorting with laughter at me.

But it does have enough range to reach South Korea and Japan, and U.S. bases in both locations where 80,000++ US troops are stationed. Also, it’s a solid-fuel rocket, not a liquid fuel, which means that it doesn’t require fueling on the launch pad.

Joking aside, picking a quarrel with any country that already has the technology in place that you are seeking, any country that can flatten yours into oblivion, is a bad idea. That’s why the Cold War worked.  It was a Mexican standoff.

I said a while back that the Norks are learning as they go. So are the Iranians, who also launched a missile successfully last week. Their favorite target is Israel, but the Israelis have reasonably good aim and can shoot down incoming Scuds. (Do we still have those Scud-killers?)

The Chinese are not particularly happy about Fatty Kim da T’ird’s adventures in rocket science, and like us, the Israelis, the Russians and the French, Pakistanis and Indians, the Chinese have nuclear capability.

If Fatty Kim da T’ird and Iran want a war, they should be careful what they wish for.

UPDATE: This becomes more and more odd.

A third person has been apprehended in the death of Fatty Kim da T’ird’s half-brother Kim Jong-nam. The article says that the person detained is a boyfriend of the Korean woman involved in the murder of Kim Jong-nam.  One of the two female assailants was a Vietnamese woman from Nam Dinh, VN.

North Korea denies any involvement in the matter.  There was no report related to Kim Jong-nam’s death on Nork News yesterday.

N.B.:  For anyone who thinks a nuclear explosion produces a glass parking lot, it does not. Soil from the impact site is drawn up into the explosion cloud and vaporized, and falls as liquid droplets called trinitite or Almogordo glass. They solidify as rocklike or dumbbell shapes. They are mildly radioactive, but safe to handle, and you can find some on e-bay if you want to waste money. The original Trinity site has been bulldozed over and the stuff is buried now.  Trinitite is similar to Libyan desert glass, which is thought to be the soil liquefied by a meteoric impact and scattered into the desert as liquid, solidifying in chunks as it was expelled from the impact.

    Korea – the never-ending Klown Zhow tzaring FatBoy Kim Numnutz and his Karkas Krew.

    At the risk of beating a dead horse – Flattening the US with nukes takes hundreds if not thousands of bombs. Ruining the civilian infrastructure with EMP bombs takes very few nukes and does not require precision targeting, the sort of asymmetric strike a smaller country can carry out. Used to be the government said that cars would restart after a nuke strike – with all the computerized electronics now,kiss your cars goodbye.

    More related to the original topic – yesterday it was an attack by two women with “poisoned needles” – today’s TV says one woman was arrested, and that she threw a cloth (presumably poisoned) over Kim’s face. Journalistic consistency….where did it go?

    • Ex-PH2 says:

      What???? That’s not what they showed in the Terminator movies!!! How can you justify destroying that illusion???

      Now, the US could ‘flatten’ Norkiland, except that it’s so hilly it’s most likely that the shockwave would roll up hills surrounding a drop site and then back down, as they did at Nagasaki. So you should understand my use of a metaphor about ‘flattening a country’.

      I’m more concerned about the ego trip Fatty Kim da T’ird is following than his bombshell nukes. I thought that ‘two women’ and now ‘one woman’ was kind of odd, myself. Maybe there’s more info to come. Also, Faty Li’l Kim has several other half-siblings who may also be targets. Kim Jong-Nam was a vocal critic of the Norks, even though he and his half-brother have never met.

    • Silentium Est Aureum says:

      Actually, an EMP burst that would take out a seriously large area would in fact require pretty specific targeting, both in terms of location and altitude at detonation.

      Miss by much, and you’d have a pretty light show, and not a whole lot else.

      • 11b-mailclerk says:

        A single-warhead EMP strike on the USA, that would actually get the majority of stuff would require

        A multi-stage multi megaton warhead they do not yet have

        A very large launcher that could get to very high altitude over the USA, that they are nowhere near building.

        Early- evolution warhead would need something like a saturn 1. A wel developed light weight BIG weapon takes a Titan II.

        With what they have now, the would need to launch IN Kansan to zorch ….Kansas.

        They can destroy small cities, or zorch medium metro areas. Messy, hugely costly, and no more crippling that a broken nose.

        Payback is extinction-level for a nation that does such a thing.

        High warhead count to clean out NK due to mountains ans decades of tunneling. But the end result is erasing all the police state physical structure, and extinction-famine from the loss of what little farming there that works.

          Now,, if some idiot, say a mush-headed liberal head of state, gives a couple hundred billion dolars to a rouge state, say Iran, and those mad mullas -fund- and -assist- the Norks to upgrade, say in exchange for built copies of weapons and launchers….

          Five years, tops, before both are sufficiently gunned up to be a lethal threat. More like two, if no one -actively- counters the obvious launch and weapon tests.

          Then the risk is “the western third of the USA”, from home-soil launchers.

          Eastern third from ships or subs.

          Now what moron would fund the mad mullahs……..

    Been back to Korea several times with Miss Dustoff. Somethings change, somethings never change…like the Norks always bumping off anyone that gets in the way of the fat guy in charge. And there have been fat guys in charge since the late 1940s. One side note the Republic of Korea’s 707 Special Missions Battalion based just outside of Seoul (Seongnam) keeps a platoon of female operators for just this type of hit. I’m not saying it was agents from the South…..Im just sayin.

  4. The Other Whitey says:

    So when does ND:tBF’s hot sister decide she’s had enough of fat boy’s shit and has one of her nork boyfriends clip his ass?

  5. A Proud Infidel®™ says:

    LIFE IS VERY CHEAP when you live in the la-la-land of a despotic dictator.

  6. Doc Savage says:

    “A cloth over his face”?

    Sounds like the “ether bunny” has gone down a dark road……

  7. Sorensen25 says:

    Well, the detained one might be Vietnamese, actually.

  8. Fjardeson says:

    North Korea. Insane Disneyland with the safety protocols disabled.

  9. AW1Ed says:

    If you haven’t been to Pohang,

    Shut the fuck up.

  10. Martinjmpr says:

    Humorist P.J. O’Rourke once described the Koreans as “The Irish of Asia. They’re hard-headed, hard-drinking, tough little bastards. They don’t like anyone who’s not Korean and they don’t like each other that much, either.”
