And this event is probably one of the lesser, shocking episodes of the Kims’ reign.
They bomb airlines. They run commercial-grade counterfeiting operations. They kidnap. They torture. They assassinate. They are a country of Bond villains. And what we know only scrapes the surface.
What is going to be revealed when the regime finally collapses (in 100 years) and all the secrets pour out?
