  Halting S.Korea-US drills risks weakening N.Korea deterrence U.S. and South Korean officials are hoping the suspension of a major joint military exercise helps advance nuclear negotiations with North Korea. The cancellation, abruptly decided by President Donald Trump at his summit last week with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, was formally announced by the Pentagon on Monday. South Korea's Defense Ministry simultaneously confirmed the suspension of the Ulchi Freedom Guardian exercises, consisting largely of computer-simulated war games.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un reportedly publicly executed a high-ranking military officer for giving out extra food and fuel to colleagues at the Sohae Satellite Launching Station in April.

The leader was infuriated on discovering the fact that 56-year-old Hyon Ju Song, a lieutenant general of the Korean People’s Army, had been giving extra rice and corn rations to his troop and their families.

The officer, who was found guilty of profiting the enemy, engaging in anti-Party acts and abusing authority, was shot with 90 bullets by nine military death-row convicts at the firing range of the Kang Kon Military Academy, located in the capital, Pyongyang.

Kim Jong Un looks to the East for economic inspiration

  Kim Jong Un looks to the East for economic inspiration Touring Singaporean shipyards one day, visiting Chinese agricultural exhibitions and traffic control centers the next, Kim Jong Un's engagement with the region has had a decidedly economic air of late. The North Korean dictator returned to Pyongyang late Wednesday after his third visit with Chinese President Xi Jinping. The two discussed Kim's meeting with US President Donald Trump, but also focused on how North Korea can move forward economically now too. That is as much a priority for China, its greatest ally, as it is for North Korea.

“We no longer have to suffer and tighten our belts to make rockets or nuclear weapons,” the officer had reportedly said while checking oil supplies for the launching station.

The officer sent out 900 kilograms of fuel, 590 kilograms of rice and 730 kilograms of corn to soldiers at the Launching Station which Kim did not approve of.

“This was considered an anti-Party act violating the Ten Principles for the Establishment of the Party’s One-Ideology System,” a source said, Fox News reported.

“The ideological poisoning that is personal idolization is corrupting the chief personnel in the People’s Army. We must nip the bud of ideological poisoning,” another source quoted Kim as saying.

Kim has a history of ordering executions.

How foreign companies have lost a bundle in North Korea

  How foreign companies have lost a bundle in North Korea Months before the first summit between leaders of two Koreas in 2000, South Korean tech giant Samsung Electronics invested $730,000 in Pyongyang's top computer lab. North Korean programmers there would develop online chess games and food recipes for Samsung to sell outside the North.Samsung quit the business as inter-Korea relations later deteriorated and the lab, Korea Computer Centre, was blacklisted last year for its alleged contribution to the North's weapons program.

In February 2016, North Korea's military Chief Ri Yong Gil was executed on charges of corruption and for forming a political faction, Reuters reported.

In April 2016, the then Defense Minister Hyon Yong Chol was executed in front of an audience of hundreds for reportedly showing disloyalty to Kim and falling asleep during an event attended by the leader, BBC reported.

In December 2013, Kim executed his uncle Jang Song Thaek for being a counter-revolutionary and on charges of corruption. He was reportedly killed after being stripped naked and fed to a pack of hungry dogs .

“I put no cruelty past the North Korean regime, but it does sound extreme even for them. In the recent past, they did have an effigy of the South Korean president mauled by dogs,” Aidan Foster-Carter, a senior research fellow in Sociology told the Independent, at the time.

“However the killing of Jang Song Thaek has been an episode of state terrorism and the fact they did purge him and it was done so publicly shows that the military and Kim Jong Un is trying to warn people not to revolt and how savage punishments can been,” he added.

In May 2015, a senior official revealed to CNN that Kim had ordered the execution of his aunt and Jang’s wife Kim Kyong Hui for complaining about her husband's execution .

 "Kim Jong Un ordered his aunt, Kim Kyong Hui, to be killed. Only his bodyguard unit, Unit 974, knew this — now senior officials also know she was poisoned,” the official said.

Experts see risks in US plan to dismantle NKorea's nukes .
Experts are warning that the Trump administration's plan to dismantle North Korea's nuclear weapons and missiles in just a year is both unrealistic and risky. The State Department said Pompeo would arrive Friday on his third visit to Pyongyang in three months. It will be the first visit by a senior U.S. official since President Donald Trump's historic meeting with Kim Jong Un on June 12 in Singapore, where the North Korean leader committed to "complete denuclearization" of the Korean Peninsula.
