In Russia it is said that chickens are milked, and cows carry eggs. (A mockery of those who believe ridiculous rumors.)

I’ll Be Back: Ri Yong-Gil

Just gotta get coffee…

Oh man, that is so wrong on so many ways. Once again the State Department of many countries is caught lying. Again. And again, and…it always comes out in the end…So many lies and so little time…

In 2016 we splashed the headlines with: THE NORTH KOREAN army’s chief of staff has been executed, South Korean media has reported , in what would amount to the latest in a series of purges and executions of top officials by leader Kim Jong-Un. Ri Yong-Gil, Chief of the Korean People’s Army (KPA)…

Then we kinda said it might not be true, but probably is true…and then dropped it like a hot potatoes and did not follow through much after that…

Then in May of 2016: Ri Yong Gil’s was reported to have been executed for “factionalism, misuse of authority and corruption,” based on the testimony of a North Korean defector, in February 2016. Then a report on May 10, 2016, by North Korean state media included a photograph of him very much alive and listed him as a member of the Workers’ Party central military commission. Government and military officials in Seoul had previously said Ri was killed but shortly updated the claim.

With that MSN ran away and decided to look for other lies and if no lies to be found, make them all up and pay good money for those lies….and this week…we find out that South Korea pays good money for lies…

As of 2017, it has been well known that Seoul’s rate for such stories was $860,000 in USD. It isn’t clear if or how much Thae Yong Ho, a North Korean diplomat who turned defector and expressed a magnanimous lie about Ri Yong Gil, who knows what he was paid for telling Yonhap News in 2016 that Ri was killed. But as CNN says

Seoul (CNN) South Korea is quadrupling its reward fee for defectors from North Korea who are willing to hand over classified information on the reclusive country’s military secrets. The Ministry of Unification announced Sunday that it would pay up to 1 billion won ($860,000) — eclipsing the previous maximum of 250 million won.

Now:

North Korea has reportedly overhauled the highest echelon of its military, replacing its three top military officials. One of the new appointees, Ri Yong Gil, must be particularly pleased at his promotion, as he was reported to have been executed in February 2016…

I guess Ri Yong Gil is Jesus and risen from the dead officially…

Time and time again this happens and while we extrapolate the happening and lies, we very rarely care to explain about why we accept the lies and ignore the true truth…
