North Korea’s Kim apologizes over shooting death of S. Korean

| September 27, 2020

I talked about the Norks shooting and then burning the body of a South Korean official the other day. In an exceptionally unusual move, Kim Jong-Un has apologized for the incident.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un apologized Friday over the killing of a South Korea official near the rivals’ disputed sea boundary, saying he’s “very sorry” about the incident he called unexpected and unfortunate, South Korean officials said.

It’s extremely unusual for a North Korean leader to apologize to South Korea on any issue. Kim’s move could de-escalate tensions between the Koreas as it’s expected to ease anti-North sentiments in South Korea over the man’s death as well as mounting criticism of its liberal President Moon Jae-in.

“Comrade Kim Jong Un, the State Affairs Commission chairman, feels very sorry to give big disappointment to President Moon Jae-in and South Korean citizens because an unexpected, unfortunate incident happened” at a time when South Korea grapples with the coronavirus pandemic, Moon adviser Suh Hoon cited the North Korean message as saying.

On Thursday, South Korea accused North Korea of fatally shooting one of its public servants who was likely trying to defect and burning his body after finding him on a floating object in North Korean waters on Tuesday. South Korean officials condemned North Korea for what they called an “atrocious act” and pressed to punish those responsible.

According to the North Korean message, North Korean troops first fired blanks after the man found in the North’s waters refused to answer other than saying he’s from South Korea a couple of times. Then, as he made moves to flee, the North Korean troops fired 10 rounds. When they came near the floating object, they only found lots of blood but no sign of him.

The troops determined he was dead and burned the floating object in line with anti-coronavirus rules, according to the North Korean message read by Suh.

    Still scratching my watch and winding my azz over this one. And we all thought that KimCheese was in a semi coma? And Sis was running things? And why would anybody want to defect to the Norks, unless they were doing things that would make the ROKs be a trifle perturbed at them? Is that why the ROKs are mad at the Norks? They wanted to punish this guy themselves? Oh, well, to my way of thinking, one less possible crooked official and one less mouth for the Norks to have to feed. That alone may save the life of another dog.

    Attempted to defect to North Korea? Well, when you are president of the Dennis Rodman Fan Club, and you promised that he would appear at your homecoming dance, you will go to extreme measures to make it happen.
