18. Actually, it has nothing to do with supporting N. Korea.

That is a good point. Obviously this soldier would have made no attempt to assess the desire of the officers to defect - doing so would certainly have resulted in arrest. But is it moral to kill them to flee? One could argue that because they were officers (if true), that makes them fair game. But it's also arguable that this would essentially justify killing anyone in order to flee.
