    Evidently he wasn't as immune as you say and he collapsed and had to be taken to hospital.

    A shot to the head or the heart or some other area that would be immediately fatal and would have killed him. He was apparently not shot in the head or the heart or spine.

    Your opinion isn't based on any knowledge or facts. There are historical accounts of people continuing moving after being shot multiple times.

    As far as is known, the defector was shot multiple times, survived and was taken to hospital where he was operated on for these injuries.

    Good propaganda is always based on some element of truth. Some of the footage is probably genuine, but the bit about this guy crossing the border is tagged on. Totally fake and unbelievable. Particularly when the real buildings don't match the supposed location of the alleged incident.

    That's where they say they found 3 foot long worms in his stomach from eating human faeces

    How honest of you...admitting Fat Un puts his soldiers up against a wall...
    North Korea removed all border security guards after they failed to prevent a soldier's defection

    Do you realise what you're saying? You claim is that this supposed defector ran about 15 to 20 meters, with two men firing on him from less than five meters behind him. Does it not strike you as strange that the video does not include this miraculous event - but stops after the first burst of gunfire?

    Yes, yes, all the usual propaganda bullshit. It's a wonder they didn't say the worms are from eating babies.

    The real buildings do match the location if you care to look at google Earth and watch the video at the same time, you dummy !

    News channels generally don't run footage of people being shot.

    Allegedly yes, but after running 20-30 metres after allegedly being shot five times. As I keep saying; I have trouble accepting someone could do this. If he staggered a bit, or even broke his stride, but if you look at the vid he literally sprints away.

    Please see above.

    Why do you keep saying this when I'm agreeing with you?

    Are there any of people sprinting like the chap in the vid did after taking at least five gunshots?

    I'd like to see/read them.

    As far as we're being told, you mean.

    It may be true.

    Then we have to consider the camera angle from which the footage of the alleged defector abandoning the jeep was taken. It could only have been taken from the North Korean buidings, as it is from 90 degrees to the road. Are we to believe that the North Koreans handed over this footage?

    Really? This is from the New York Times - notice that he shows quite a lot of reaction when he is shot - unlike our miraculous defector....

    Tadgh you really should take up the challenge laid down by Mr Rehn. He's making a compelling case with visual evidence to back it up.

    Nope- it was taken from the South. Ever noticed how curved the border is at that point ? You can see the front of the buildings and the road in NK if you move to the east !

    You are wrong again. The area your man escaped is to the RIGHT of the picture. You see all those trees there,dummy ?
    Don't you see that you are flogging a dead horse ?

    That must have frightened him because he has since deleted it.

    You really look ridiculous. A cop here uses a 40 caliber glock firing a hollow point round, designed to stop a horse. A rifle bullet is designed to hit a target. If it takes the target an hour to die, it does not matter. You are beyond clueless in this natter
