For what its worth a few things to note -
* - There is no non agression treaty between the 2 Koreas. The Korean war never ended... There is and always has been a truce / cease fire in
effect. The 2 nations remain, technically, at war.
* - The current leader of N. Korea has a lot to prove. He has gone on a spree of firing top military officals who were loyal to his father. He has
also had minister pose for rifle fire. He was born into the myth that his family are descendents of Gods (yes, they ruling family actually beleives
this, in addition to creating golf and the internet). Take that mentality, factor in his age, and we have a very unstable situation. In most cases
the old leaders were verbal however they knew how international affairs worked. This new leader, by virtue of his age, does in fact have soemthing to
prove, which means I could see him starting a war.
* - China, always the wild card, introduced an unstable element when it signed onto the UN sanctions this go around. I say this because China has
always been the stalwart ally in the eyes of the N. Koreans. China has been the one to propr up their economy and military while also keeping the
The scary part -
With the Chinese latest move to support the sanctions, the N. Korean leader could very well think China has abandoned them. Without their main ally,
their source of food, energey, military etc etc etc, the N. Korean leadership may very well feel they have nothing to lose anymore by acting on their
own. Again this goes back to the age and experience of the N. Korean leader. Something to prove... In this part of the scenario its they dont need
China.. they can go it on their own.
