Kim Jong-un's uncle Jang Song Thaek executed

There will be one less relative at Kim Jong-un’s dinner table this Christmas.

North Korean media announced today (December 12) that the country has executed Jang Song Thaek, a former state official and Kim Jong-un’s uncle, calling Jang “worse than a dog”.

According to the CBC, this announcement comes days after Jang had been removed from his post—as North Korea’s second-most powerful person—due to allegations of corruption, drug use, gambling, womanizing, and “generally leading a ‘dissolute and depraved life.’”

When Stalin put on the Moscow Trials there were plenty of lefties in the media and general public who believed the charges against the old Bolsheviks and supported the executions. Naturally the left doesn't like to be reminded of such things, just as they are upset when reminded of their love for Mao throughout the 60's. Are there are die hards left who believe the DPRK propaganda machine?
