Confused malcontents swilling Chardonnay while awaiting the Zombie Apocalypse.
Perhaps KJU's health is not too good.
She needs to be seen as powerful before the fateful day...
She cant threaten the US if she did and it was taken seriously there would be no North Korea
NK is not looking for war and as far as I know also the US , NK has to move and decide to lay down their nuclear weapons if they are to obtain US support and aid , for the moment the decision of the leaders in NK is to continue down the same path - so be it
They will continue to hold power until such times as elements of the army revolt , without the Army they have no power at all .
"When you see a rattlesnake poised to strike, you do not wait until he has struck to crush him". -Franklin D. Roosevelt
if it was as simple as a Rattle Snake then I am sure NK would have fallen some time ago , the reality is that NK has possibly 2nd maybe 3rd strike capability and it would only take 1 ICBM to take out NYC or LA or anywhere with a gigantic toll on life and resources .
As the World economy falters so does the NK falter even further , the leadership is FAR from stupid , they know that unless something happens they are sooner or later going to hit the fan , it is always possible that way behind the scene the US and NK are talking - the same with Iran
