The cold hard reality is that everyone in the world realizes North Korea is a basket case nation run by a lunatic. Even the Chinese who supply them with all their fuel and half the food are now withdrawing. The Chinese had helped keep NK from total deterioration mostly because they don't want 10-20 Million starving people crossing their border to survive.
The whole world quietly waits for NK to collapse as it inevitably has to. Dissent has been murderously repressed, but one day the military will take control when their paychecks don't go through.

Actually, North Korea's dominant ideology is Songun which mean Military First. Songun means that the Military is the number one priority in the country. They [the military] run a separate budget. The country is effectively run by the Military with the Generalissimo Kim Jong Il at the helm.
