, what if this:
(I can't see your 'what if working')
Japan already has a few nukes but not a really good delivery system. They can't test as much as they need because of international scrutiny
(I'm on a red-herring crusade at the moment and kind of hung-up on disinfo so I apologize upfront for any craziness)
The Japanese assuredly want to get back what citizenry they can. The NKs don't want to be embarrassed anymore than they have over the entire
affair. This leaves me with the question as to why this (kidnapping) was made public in the first place. Surely the Japanese could have dealt with
this under the radar and achieved at least the same results?
So, what are they (NK or Japan) really after?
Was this kidnapping becoming a Japanese scandal that couldn't otherwise be dealt with?
From a rather cursory inspection of Google this kidnapping by the NK has been japanese news for at least two years- therefor it must be dealt with
Military- non issue
Political- been tried and didn't get results that worked well enough domestically (to Japanese politicians)
Economics- all that is left to bargain with.
Given that NK is publicly likened to dealing with a rabid dog why would the Japanese demand something they knew they wouldn't get and that they knew
would bring a threatening rebuke?
This is where I'm at on this.
. . . the US is happy about the NK denuking, and NK walks away with all the US economic incentives and a no-attack guarantee from the US and
Japan, on the condition it will address its population's hunger problems with the money...China would appreciate less NK's coming across its border,
cause now the NK population is being fed.
Hmm, this may be a player.
Kim doesn't act alone. Behind him, in the shadows, are others with interests that will not be thrown away in some irrational act. I have never
known a NK citizen- do they play chess?
Isn't it strange that 'Krazy Kim' may just get U.S., SK and Japanese aid and economic assistance in one fell swoop?
