My comments : The guy was here since 2013. It is a sad fate for him. He had a conscience and did not agree with his family’s dictatorial control of North Korea.It looks like he was killed by the North Koreans. The people who killed him are possibly hiding in an unassailable location or they have been spirited out of Malaysia already.
I wrote about North Korea just a few days ago. There are other things going on about North Korea.
Get this folks, Donald Trump is making some outreach to China.
US Defense Secretary James Mattis has recently visited Japan and South Korea. Very quickly and quietly.
I think they are going to take out Kim Jung Un and it will happen this year. I believe North Korea will be in the news.
The young fellow Kim Jung Un appears to be personally irrational.
His irritating behaviour of shooting really dangerous rockets over the sea and even over the Japanese islands is simply not 21st century at all.
Imagine what will happen to the world’s financial markets (especially Tokyo, New York etc) if just one missile falls on Japan or there is fighting along the Korean DMZ? There will be total chaos.
And there has not been any imminent threat from anyone towards North Korea for a long time. They are still fighting the Korean War which came to an end 63 years ago in 1954.

Here is something more relevant:
- Trump up to something ‘big’ in Asia Pacific region
- Defense Secretary James Mattis’ visits to South Korea, Japan
- prelude to Trump’s real foreign strategy
- Trump planning “big game” in Asia-Pacific
- political maneuvers toward Asia largely unnoticed
- James Mattis’ trip to Asia failed to catch headlines
- routine journey marks beginning of Trump’s Realpolitik
- “Mattis’ trip beginning of complex, winning diplomatic combination
- the starting point in Trump’s foreign policy
