Jang’s execution bodes ill for China

THE execution of Jang Song Thaek, the No. 2 man in North Korea, took Beijing by surprise and will adversely affect bilateral relations.

Beijing’s displeasure is expressed through the publication of a detailed account of Jang’s brutal execution in Wen Wei Po, its official mouthpiece, in Hong Kong, on Dec 12.

According to the report, unlike previous executions of political prisoners which were carried out by firing squads with machine guns, Jang was stripped naked and thrown into a cage, along with his five closest aides. Then 120 hounds, starved for three days, were allowed to prey on them until they were completely eaten up. This is called “quan jue”, or execution by dogs.

We deal with these bloodthirsty barbarians, and similar Muslim savages, as if they were something other than rabid animals walking on two legs.

We should stop doing that.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.

  1. This is called “quan jue”, or execution by dogs.

    I’m still wrapping my brain around this concept, but I’m not having much success. Horrific doesn’t begin to describe it.

    I’m also trying to imagine what it would be like to live in a country whose northern border was nothing but a line of mine fields and razor wire, manned by such people armed to the teeth and dedicated to my obliteration.
