Ousting Kim Jong-un would be like getting 'rid of Allah', says retired South Korean Army general
On Thursday, while addressing an audience at the Policy Exchange think-tank in London, In-Bum Chun, former deputy commander of South Korean Army said that invading North Korea in a bid to overthrow Kim Jong-un would be "like trying to get rid of Allah" in Iraq than Saddam Hussein.

The former general said that although a military option of dealing with North Korea did exist, it should only be the last option.

Chun strongly believes that the North Korean dictator could use ramshackled Soviet era warplanes as kamikaze jets, as reported by The Times.

According to him, these aircraft which are relics of the Korean War that ended in 1953, could be loaded with bombs and fuel and used as weapons.

He said, "The entire country is a barracks. I try to explain to America that if we have to go into North Korea it's not going to be like Iraq or Afghanistan. It's not like trying to get rid of Hussein. It's more like trying to get rid of Allah. Kim Jong-un and the Kim family is like a cult."

Chun revealed that the brainwashed, starving and uneducated North Korean people worship their tyrant leader Kim Jong-un like a god and that recruitments to the country's army have soared amid rising tension with the United States.

Chun said, "It's like having to pull out all of your teeth and putting them back again." He said that the Kim regime has been building a formidable military after "being bombed into the Stone Age" by the US during the Korean War.

In another startling revelation, Chun said that a 14-year-old child in North Korea probably receives at least 100 hours of military training in a year. He also said that at least a third of the one-million strong North Korean Army comprises of women soldiers.

He said, "By age 14 a child knows how to fire an AK-47, fire an RPG, throw a grenade, pitch a tent and march 24 hours."

Tensions have been escalating in the Korean peninsula since last year, with the Kim regime conducting numerous missile tests in the region. In response, the US President Donald Trump sent three B2 bombers to the Pacific Island of Guam.

For the first time in two years, North and South Korea have engaged in dialogue in order to avert the possibility of a nuclear war breaking out in the divided Korean peninsula.
