Sorry Jim but that is going too far.

Let us not forget that Stalin, Chairman Mao and Kim Jong-un have or had more than a few victims too.

If 118 members of Kim Jong-un's "government" had voted against him, he would simply lined up 118 anti aircraft cannons in the same manner he dispensed with a few of his relatives who fell out of favour.
