Cuba & North Korea: Generals behind failed arms smuggling attempt purged, one confirmed dead

It is not so unusual to be demoted or even lose one's job when a major mistake with monumental consequences has been committed. However, in Cuba and North Korea, two of the last remaining murderous and vile totalitarian dictatorships left in the world, the consequences for making a mistake go way beyond getting fired. In these two countries, which are actually run more like mafias than governments, a major mistake will cost you your life.

Via Capitol Hill Cubans:

Cuban General Dead, North Korean General Purged -- Coincidence?

Is investigative reporting dead?

Earlier this week, the head of the Cuban Air Force, General Pedro Mendiondo Gomez, died in a mysterious car wreck.

And today, North Korea's Army Chief, General Kim Kyok-sik, was mysteriously purged and disappeared.

General Mendiondo was the chief of Cuba's air force and air-defense systems. U.N. inspectors had just sought permission to travel to Havana to interview him regarding the shipment of Cuban fighter jets and anti-missile defense systems caught being smuggled to North Korea.

Meanwhile, General Kyok-sik led the North Korean delegation to Havana earlier this summer, where this illegal smuggling deal was negotiated.

Obviously, Castro and Kim wanted these two Generals to take the fall and be silenced.

Yet, not one news story has noted this strange "coincidence."

Below is a picture of Generals Castro and Kyok-sik this summer.

    Talk about American mainstream media collusion with the castro regime. Normally vicious and rabid, they're as as docile as a newborn babe when it comes to castro. This is fascinating and has the potential to become a runaway story, and yet no one is reporting on it. Mums the word. You can hear the crickets.

    Well, there's aways the enthralling stories about gigantic bicycles, and men with 12 fingers.
