Did he do it again or did he do it again?

If you didn’t see this coming, you weren’t paying attention. Talk shit on Kim Jong-un, be prepared to get got. It’s a way of life, and no border will save you. Oh you think he can’t kill you just because you live in a different country? Think again, asshole. Family or not, he will poison you, and you will die.

Look, I don’t mean to make light of the cold-blooded murder of a seemingly innocent person, but just like the guy who saunters into a tiger cage expecting to come out unscathed, you have to see it coming if you fall out of favor with the Supreme Leader. It’s a mess with the bull, get the horns scenario.

From Bloomberg:

The oldest half-brother of North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un was murdered in Malaysia on Monday, according to a South Korean government official.

Kim Jong Nam, the eldest son of former leader Kim Jong Il, had lived outside the country for years. The official, who asked not to be identified due to government policy, said poison was involved in his death, but provided no other details.

Two unidentified women killed Kim Jong Nam at Kuala Lumpur’s airport with a poison needle before fleeing in a taxi, YTN television station reported, citing a government source. Malaysia’s police didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.

Kim Jong Nam, aged in his mid 40s, fell out of favor with his father after he was caught trying to enter Japan using a fake Dominican Republic passport in 2001, according to Japanese reporter Yoji Gomi, who wrote a book about him. Kim Jong Nam had been critical of Kim Jong Un, reportedly saying in 2012 that he “won’t last long” because of his youth and inexperience.

Say what you want about how wrong it is to take the life of someone just for speaking their mind, blah blah blah, but this is why Kim Jong is the greatest dictator in the game. You keep your people in line by reminding them that stepping out of it means they die a horrible and tragic death.

You keep your mouth shut except to praise the regime or you get strapped to a rocket and shot into outer space. Or poisoned via Malaysian death squad if you flee the homeland.
