...my superior intellect.
You mean he wants to deter anyone from preventing him from inflicting fear/terror, starvation and murder etc etc etc on his own people! This is not only about deterrence but ego and a psychotic and paranoia complex! Come on, he wacked his own brother and uncle and so many more including whole families because one of them did something he didn't like! His people are prisoners in the largest poorly funded jail on earth. Starve the people to feed an ego! The guys a fruit and nut just like his father and grand father!!

Well perhaps. But Kim Jong-un isn't a bond villain.
He doesn't have any of these grand master plans. His nuclear program is purely for deterrence.

So which part of the op do you find false?
Do you believe that the kessler effect is real?
Do you believe that NK fired a missile high enough to start it?
What if they start it by accident? Do they know where ALL of the space debris is located now that they will be shooting stuff up there?
So you're saying that NK could detonate a nuclear warhead a couple hundred miles up, which would cause an increasing number of collisions, after frying quite a few satellite electronics immediately after the explosion?
North Korea would probably have better success with this, than attempting the Electro Magnetic Pulse (EMP) explosion over the U.S..
If our intelligence and military are on the ball, they should destroy the next missile before its launched. But I said the same thing before yesterday's launch. I wonder why we don't do this?
