CNN reported late last year in 2013, Kim Jong Un, Dictator and son of the late Kim Jong II, brutally executed his uncle Jang Song Thaek, second in command and leader of the NK military, in front of a crowd of people. United States officials believe the strength of North Korean hierarchy is murky and unclear. North Korean official news reported, Jang Song Thaek was accused of trying to overthrow the current regime. Many believe this act of violence by Kim Jong Un, was in attempt to take back control of his country and rid the country of any thoughts or actions of rebellion.
Many questions about countries like this have risen for most people, who ask, “How could anyone want to live in that environment,” or “why are not civilized western governments stepping in and freeing the people from the brutality and control?” Actually, history has shown us by observation, the present leader of any nation is a reflection of the people and should remain there until the people change their leader them self. Anytime a leader has been removed by another entity, it has disrupted the entire system. For example, Dictator Saddam Hussein was removed from his position of power in Iraq, then the economy took a downward spiral and has not returned to its previous state since. When the people are ready to change they will revolt like the French revolution, American revolution, Indian revolution, and currently the Egyptian revolution. The difficulty is not the observation of the brutality and control in another nation, but remaining at peace by accepting what is being observing.
