Kim Jong-un 'erases his father and grandfather' from new mandatory national oath

Kim Jong-un 'erases his father and grandfather' from new mandatory national oathKim Jong-un, the North Korean leader, has introduced a new national oath playing down the achievements of his father and grandfather and instead praising his own ideology and leadership. The oath, which must be recited by all citizens, was originally introduced in the 1970s, when Kim Il-sung, the founder of the nation and the grandfather of the present dictator, exercised control over the nation. The oath was made up of 10 articles that extolled the wisdom and greatness of Mr Kim and, after his death in July 1994, his son, Kim Jong-il. Declared by workers, students and members of the armed forces on national holidays and key anniversaries of the Workers’ Party, citizens have been required to swear to “arm themselves with the ideals” of the nation’s first two leaders, the Seoul-based DailyNK news site reported. Citizens were then required to commit themselves to applying those ideals to every facet of their lives – in the workplace, school and family – and “to forever dedicate their lives as if they were worth nothing but for the great achievements of Kim Il-sung, Kim Jong-il and the Workers’ Party of Korea”.

The oath has not been changed for more than 40 years, the sources said, although the present hereditary ruler of North Korea has apparently decided that it needed to be revised. The new version of the oath reduces the number of articles from 10 to five, shortening the time required to recite the full text. The revised oaths have effectively edited out Kim Il-sung and Kim Jong-il, leaving only a brief comment on their “will and spirit”, DailyNK reported. Kim Jong-un’s family tree Instead, a passage has been inserted that is a declaration of loyalty to the ideology and leadership of Kim Jong-un. The complete white-washing of past leaders has never been attempted before in North Korea and runs counter to the concept of the Kim family being benevolent parent-figures to the population through the generations. Mr Kim’s efforts to eclipse his forefathers is likely to be another attempt to shore up his own domestic support base at the same time as reinvigorating his subjects’ revolutionary spirit.  North Korean soldiers carry flags and a photo of late leader Kim Il Sung during a military parade  Credit: AP Photo/Wong Maye-E It has also been suggested that it may be part of a manoeuvre to weaken the “old guard” in political and military circles who may have been more loyal to previous regimes. In Washington, meanwhile, President Donald Trump on Friday extended US sanctions on North Korea for another year, citing the “unusual and extraordinary” threat posed by the regime’s nuclear weapons programme. The announcement came 10 days after Mr Trump’s summit in Singapore with Mr Kim, during which the North Korean leader committed himself to the “complete denuclearisation” of the Korean Peninsula in return for US security guarantees.

Grandfather planned Australia family murder-suicide according to grieving father

Grandfather planned Australia family murder-suicide according to grieving fatherThe grieving father of four children who were killed in a family mass murder and suicide case that rocked Australia said on Sunday their grandfather was to blame for what he called a planned shooting. Aaron Cockman’s children – three boys and a girl aged eight to 13 – were among the seven people found dead by police on a rural property in the small town of Osmington near the Margaret River wine region of Western Australia. The bodies of their mother Katrina Miles, 35, and grandparents Peter and Cynda Miles were also found at the property. Cockman, who told reporters in Margaret River he was estranged from Katrina, said “Peter didn’t snap”. “I think he’s thought this through. I think he’s been thinking this through for a long time,” Cockman added in his first public comments since the shootings. Katrina Miles with her four children Credit:  Facebook Police have yet to confirm which family member was the shooter but said they were not searching for any suspects. Three firearms licensed to Peter Miles were found by investigators. Cockman said that after feeling “so much anger” during legal struggles over custody of his children, such feelings had vanished. “I don’t feel angry. I feel tremendous sadness for my kids. Angry will destroy you. I’m tremendously sad but I’ll get through this.” Investigators have not revealed the motive behind the shootings, with Cockman only saying he previously enjoyed a close relationship with Katrina’s parents. “He (Peter) was like my best friend and I still love who he was, but his mental attitude… there are some people you just don’t get on the wrong side of… and that’s Peter and Cynda,” Cockman added. Mass shootings are rare in Australia, which has strict gun laws introduced after 35 people were killed in 1996 at Port Arthur in Tasmania. The Osmington deaths are the worst mass shooting since then. Western Australia state Premier Mark McGowan, who travelled to Margaret River on Sunday, said he did not think gun laws could be further tightened but he would await recommendations from a coronial inquiry into the shootings.
