After a night of heavy drinking, North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un reportedly awakened to see several of his top military veterans crying. The dictator allegedly reprimanded the officers all night in a drunken rage, leading the military men to fear for their lives.
An anonymous source in North Korea tells UPI that Kim was blackout drunk one night in September and ordered elderly military veterans to write letters of apology or of self-criticism.
"That none of you were able to produce not even one military satellite is a misconduct that is commensurate to treason," he allegedly said.
The drunken dictator forced the veterans to stay up all night and subjected them to heavy scolding. He eventually fell asleep and woke up the next morning with no recollection of the night before.
"Why are you gathered here?" Kim asked, confused as to why top military veterans were gathered in his home. "Be careful about your health because you are all old."
The group reportedly burst into tears at that statement, UPI reports, as they were worried Kim was going to execute them.
"They were relieved because they thought they were going to be purged," the anonymous source told UPI.
Kim is reportedly a heavy drinker, and a Japanese sushi chef stated that Kim previously claimed to have drank 10 bottles of Bordeaux wine in one night.
The Telegraph reports that in 2013, Kim drunkenly ordered the death of two of his uncle's top aides. After the aides did not immediately respond to Kim's request to acquiesce a profitable business venture to the military, the dictator ordered their immediate execution, a decision he made while "very drunk."
Kim gained control of the country in 2011, after the death of his father. According to the New York Daily News, North Korea currently has medium-range missiles capable of hitting U.S. air bases in Japan. By 2020, the country could have the capability to hit the western United States.
