I Don't Recall Hearing any Exploits of His, Apart from Killing his Brothers.

The half-brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, Kim Jong-nam, has been killed in an attack in the Malaysian capital, Kuala Lumpur.
The suspect pool as to who commissioned this hit is very, very small.

Update: North Korean diplomats have apparently unsuccessfully tried to prevent the Malaysians from autopsying Kim Jong-nam.

Very informative post.

I'm fairly surprised he affected to *have* a half-brother at this stage.

What is sad is that Kim Jong-nam had no desire to challenge Kim Jong-un in any way for leadership of North Korea. He spent most of his life outside of Korea as his father's illegitimate son (said illegitimacy being why Kim Jong-un became leader of Korea after daddy's death) and just wanted to be free to live a playboy life well outside of North Korea. He didn't even *like* North Korea, nevermind want to return to it and oust his half-brother.

But yeah, hereditary dictators just can't stand that half-brother out there having fun while they're busy with the tedium of running a dictatorship... Sigh. Why can't people just let each other live their lives in peace? People suck. :(.
