Even China Threatened by North Korean Kim’s Uncle Assassination

Jang Song-Thank-execution        More comes out on Kim Jong-un’s execution of his uncle, Jang Song-Thank.  Apparently Kim also eliminated several of Jang’s associates.  At the same time, two North Korean vice-premiers escaped to China.  By executing his uncle, Kim broke major adhesions of Korean culture, that is the family. It may be unforgivable.

The only legitimacy of Kim’s reign is inheritance from his father.  Moreover, his uncle spent years mentoring Kim, preparing him for the position. Jang was second in command for Kim’s father, just as he was for Kim.

Such betrayals threaten the legitimacy of rule in one of the three Communists countries left in the world. Further, as Matt of Intel 1913 explains: “The problem of succession in North Korea suggests that China may have a succession problem too. The problem being that more and more people feel the succession in each country is less legitimate. It really gets down to a function of time and succession method.”

Kim’s recklessness also impinges on China’s government.  Matt asserts:  “However, as of now, most Chinese china_nkoreathink that inheritance is not a legitimate system, regardless whether it is a true inheritance system or a disguised one in the form of inter-generational appointments. Both inevitably will be unsuccessful.”

joshuastantonsr@gmail.com of ‘One Free Korea’ says China has called Kim to China to discuss North Korea’s “long-term stability and bilateral relations.” Chinese leaders are very “displeased with Jang’s ouster, and in case that message was too subtle, China also staged a 5,000-man night landing exercise on the Yellow Sea coast near North Korea.”

Joshua further explains that China thought it had veto power of Kim’s major decisions.  And assassinating the well-powered Jang was indeed major.  ‘One Free Korea’ also posits:  1) Chinese investors fear, because they are heavily involved in North Korea’s mines, and Kim’s spokesmen had denounced Jang for selling the tiny nation’s resources for cheap prices;

China must be worried that Kim’s actions mean a “destabilizing a nuclear-armed client state on its own border,” especially since that ruler keeps testing nuclear capabilities, although China asks him not to.

For Point 3) Wei Jingsheng of Epoch Times argues in ‘Execution of North Korean Regent Hints at Problems in Chinese Regime’ goes even deeper to say that Kim’s actions also suggest the illegitimacy of China’s reign:

“On the issue of transferring power, the one-party dictatorship preserves neither a relatively stable lineage inheritance, nor an electoral system . . .  Instead, it leads to an even more unstable state . . between elections among small cliques . . . the awareness level of the Chinese people has not declined to . . . thus a direct lineage inheritance of power already has no legitimacy in China.”

Ultimately, these rulers do not understand power’s source.  As Christian non-fiction prophecy books promise: “God hath spoken once; twice have I heard this; that power belongeth unto God (Psalm 62: 11).” But when the heads of China and North Korea face their end, they will comprehend that their power was dangerous, temporary and without meaning among eternal values.
