    Why are you lot discussing China pulling the rug out from under NK. It's literally the last thing they would want to do. Then they would have to deal with all the starving NK people that will just travel north.. No. Better to leave the devil you know in charge of that cluster fuck and use it to improve your political position in the region by telling them of when they do something bad (like they just did).

    Should've opted for asylum in a safer area, p. sure NK would have had a much harder time getting at him if he went to Yurop or the states and didn't tour Asias' casinos like an imbecile.

    In any case, a movie script waiting to be written? A tale of two sons.

    NK shows of power (or attempts at it) always come in droves and more serve as a signal to the internal ruling elite. Kind of not surprised they're doing it now; Trump situation, alleged (fake?) nuclear test and killing off your brother; fits the usual pattern imo.
    I doubt that Europe would have been any safer. North Korea has operations in Europe as well.

    Just search for North Korean restaurant (I think one was in Amsterdam, Vice did a short episode about that a while ago).

    Seems like the North Korean's are trying out meme-warfare, or it might be other actors trying to frame them with out-of-date memes.

    Rumor has it that Kim-Jong Nam laughed his ass off, and first responders were unable to re-attach it before he died.

    An Indonesian woman arrested for her suspected involvement in the assassination of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un's half brother in Malaysia was tricked into thinking she was part of a comedy show prank, Indonesia's police chief said Friday.
    http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/w...-kim/98039356/

    Ok... this no longer looks like a North Korean assassination, it's too well executed with elements that would require pretty deep understanding of contemporary media and how people react to the chance of 15... errr... 3 minutes of fame.

    From what I know the North Korean's would rather expend one of their own assets than put trust into such a convoluted scheme. So the question is who had him killed?

    This coming from the North Korea that flooded the US with so much fake currency that they changed the artwork. Pumped it full of meth. And you're suggesting a 'prank show' take out is beyond them.

    Based on my astute knowledge of international mystery - what I developed from reading them le Carré novels and chatting to a bloke in the pub what said he were once in the SAS - I can tell you that getting someone else (such as a gormless civilian) to do your dirty work for you :for reasons: isn't exactly unheard of ...

    The only confirmed source for the $100 supernote scandal was a UK crime syndicate who printed $500 000 a day o0f the stuff. North Korea was suspected but never proven, for obvious reasons
