COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE IN CHECKPOINT ASIA

 

“Is Kim Jong Un the Absolute Ruler of North Korea or Just a Hostage to the Shadowy OGD?

“Who really runs the place? Quite likely Kim is just one player of many, and not necessarily more powerful than the country’s all-pervasive surveillance apparatus”

A picture is worth a thousand words.

Do we ever see a picture of Kim at a public function without a group of high-ranking military men around him?

The one that accompanies this article is only one of scores we’ve seen.

They officers often pretend to take notes of what KIm says in little notebooks, an act which seems to testify to his absolute authority, but I am sure they are there as a reminder that he is never free to say what just pops into his head.
