A reminder of North Korea’s brutality: Jang Song-thaek, the uncle of Kim Jong-Un, has been executed by the country’s leadership over issues related to corruption. The country’s official Korean Central News Agency, which first reported the news, described the situation as thus: ”Despicable human scum Jang, who was worse than a dog, perpetrated thrice-cursed acts of treachery in betrayal of such profound trust and warmest paternal love shown by the party and the leader for him.” Jang’s top aide recently escaped to South Korea, where he is seeking asylum.
Above: A still from a video showing Jang being dragged away at a government meeting, first discovered earlier this week.

Stuff you may have missed: December 3, 2013

Detroit can go ahead with the largest municipal bankruptcy in U.S. history ($18 billion in debt, for those playing at home), which is bad news for retired city workers, who now find their pensions facing a sudden threat.

Earlier this year, a Nigerian man spent three days trapped at the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean, surviving thanks to an air bubble on his sunken ship. He thinks the rescue was divine deliverance.

Kim Jong-Un apparently fired his uncle, who was a powerful deal-broker in the country. Couldn’t negotiate that one, it seems.

Good news for Obama’s Kenya-born uncle: He won’t be forced out of the U.S., after a judge threw out a deportation notice.

Two companies that nobody likes can officially get married.

Guess who’s back in Pyongyang? Former NBA player Dennis Rodman is back in North Korea for the second time this year, though he’s shot down speculation that he might be in the country to help negotiate the release of American citizen Kenneth Bae. Bae was arrested late last year, and sentenced to 15 years in prison for allegedy trying to overthrow the North Korean government. Rodman says his trip has nothing to do with the sentence, but will instead be another “basketball diplomacy tour.” (Photo via The Mirror) source

We’re in deep doo-doo.
Dick Cheney, in a closed-door meeting with congressional Republicans, on the situation in North Korea. Cheney may be right, but his credibility is undermined both by his own record of assessing foreign threats and, perhaps more significantly, the fact that he used the word “doo-doo” to describe the prospect of nuclear war. He gets points, however, for reportedly wearing a cowboy hat to the meeting. source

I don’t condone what he does, but he’s my friend.
Former NBA superstar Dennis Rodman • Discussing his plans to visit North Korea again in August to vacation with Kim Jong-un. Rodman made the comments to what clearly is the most prominent media outlet in the country, Fargo, North Dakota’s KXJB. Rodman was reportedly giddy throughout the interview.
