PYONGYANG, North Korea - Nervous and jittery, the North Korean dictator, who had managed to strike fear in the heart of America with constant nuclear threats is himself fearing for his life.> BNN
According to South Korea's intelligence agency, Kim Jong Un is "extremely nervous" about plots to assassinate him and uses a number of ruses to foil would-be assailants.
Yonhap News quoted officials of the National Intelligence Service as revealing to a restricted session of the South Korean parliament that Jong Un is fearful of an attack by gunmen on the vehicles that he uses to travel around the country.
Lee Cheol-woo, an opposition politician who attended the meeting was quoted as saying, “Kim is engrossed with collecting information about the 'decapitation operation' through his intelligence agencies.”
Further, Cheol-woo added that Jong Un has taken to travelling at dawn and switches between different subordinates' cars instead of always travelling in his own Mercedes-Benz.
The fearsome young dictator’s concerns for his safety have grown more after reports appeared confirming that the U.S. and South Korea are setting up a special forces unit that would be tasked with eliminating the North Korean leadership in the event of war breaking out on the peninsula.
Before that, during March 2013, intelligence sources in South Korea revealed that personal security around Jong Un’s family was dramatically stepped up with armoured vehicles deployed close to his personal residence in Pyongyang.
In more action, it was reported that troops armed with automatic rifles on the streets of the city and mobile phone signals jammed at public events that the North Korean leader attended.
The actions were apparently out of concern that they could be used to detonate a bomb.
Four months before that, there were reports of outbreaks of gunfire on the streets of the North Korean capital between factions within the military and heightened discontent in some quarters with the way in which Jong Un was managing the country.
Earlier this year, in March, members of the U.S. Navy's Seal Team Six were reported to have taken part in exercises with South Korean special forces, along with elements of the U.S. Army's Rangers, Delta Force and Green Berets units.
The U.S. Navy's Seal Team Six was credited with carrying out a raid that eventually led to the death of Osama Bin Laden.
America also made it clear that the units were training to carry out a "decapitation operation" designed to kill the North's leaders and destroy the regime's ability to continue fighting.
Then two months later, Pyongyang propagated its actions of toppling a CIA plot involving a North Korean man, who, Pyongyang said had been "ideologically corrupted and bribed" to assassinate Jong Un with a "biochemical substance" and accused the U.S. of conducting state-sponsored terrorism.
Further, officials from South Korea said that apart from external threats to Jong Un’s life, there are reports of a number of attempted coups against the dictator’s family, which has ruled the North since 1945.
