The US realises that the Korean war was 56 years ago, and in a remarkable and hitherto (for some reason) unthinkable act of foregin policy, makes a decent attempt to normalise relations with North Korea - instead of sitting 21000 troops on its border, backed with the unoriginal premise of the might of the US nuclear arsenal to "defend" a country that has the worlds 6th largest army against "communism" when the Cold War ended in 1991.
Then UN releases a statement praising the NK's for making such a huge technological achievement in the face of such adversity, and praises the spirit and tenacity of a nation that has been under sanctions for so long, and pledges food aid and technological aid in order to bring North Korea in "from the cold", stops treating them like the naughty kid on the block and actually starts talking to them.
Now....wouldn't that take the wind out of the sails of all that bombastic chest beating and rhetoric?
Imagine that. Imagine a world where something different happens for a change.
Nah. Never going to happen.
