Why aren’t ruthless dictators assassinated?

How long will it be before North Korea’s Kim Jong Un is assassinated? Given the threat he poses to the world — and especially the United States — after the latest nuclear test by his country, you would think there are a lot of people in high places in many nations who want him dead.

And no doubt there are a lot of people in North Korea who would like to see the last of Kim Jong Un.

No, I am not encouraging anyone to kill the North Korean leader. But you gotta think his days are seriously numbered, yes?

Or maybe not. While thinking about this, I remembered how Hitler was able to carry on his with his Holocaust regime, being directly responsible for the deaths of millions upon millions of people. Why wasn’t he assassinated long before he got to that point? Why didn’t someone in his own country kill him?

The same can be be said for many ruthless dictators over the course of man’s history: why were they allowed to carry on their murderous ways?

In the case of Kim Jong Un, will it get to the point that he will cause millions of people, perhaps in the United States, to die?

I’m guessing there are all sorts of politics at play, and that it just wouldn’t do for a foreign power to be killing the leader of a legitimate nation. But what of the citizens of North Korea, or Nazi Germany? Why didn’t some anti-Nazi citizen in Germany kill Hitler — for the good of mankind?

Why hasn’t someone in North Korea killed Kim Jong Un for the good of mankind? I mean, if so many radicalized young people are willing to blow themselves up for the insane ideology of primitive lunatics like ISIS, you would think someone would take out Kim Jong Un before he does the unthinkable and strikes some nation with a bomb far more powerful than those used on Nagasaki and Hiroshima.

If you were standing beside this guy and you knew he was going to kill millions of people, would you wring his neck?

  1. You first have to realize the mindset and utter control the dictators have.
    But, since you specified, Kim jung.

    You are looking at a nation of people with absolutely no concept of basic human rights, let alone freedom. Generations of North Koreans have grown up knowing nothing else. The military and people close to the Great Trump (er Kim Jung) serve under a death threat. Not just themselves, but their families. If someone does something that Kim doesn’t like, not only is the perpetrator killed, so are his wife, kids and parents. That tends to keep people in line. So, how about someone from outside? How would anyone even get close to him? He is surrounded by people who have been trained since birth that the Great Trump (darn, I mean Leader) is almost a god. Their whole mindset since birth is that to protect the Great Leader with their own lives is their purpose to live. They only know total allegiance to him. There is simply no way an external assassin could get near him.

    If the assassin fails, then retaliation is certain to be quite bloody. It only works in the movies.

    Ever wonder why the Great Leader never leaves North Korea?

    1. All so very true, Steve. So it might ultimately take a war to remove this guy — after he has done something so horrible that everyone will agree there is no other choice. So, the U.S. or China or some other country will drop all sorts of bombs on North Korea and kill thousands upon thousands of innocent people to get at one madman.

      But we do live in a new age, of suicide bombings and drone warfare. Perhaps a drone will do the job . . .?
