I think the problem here is that many people can not for the life of them see the true underlying picture that is the Korean Peninsular.
North Korea sees Korea, split in two by America. They see South Korea as a decadent puppet government of the West constantly armed and upgraded by
the West. This is an arms race between the two Koreas.
It is all very well to say Un is mouthing off! He is not the one running high stakes war games on the border year after year after year. He is not
he one placing the most modern weapon systems on the border and he is not the one applying sanction after sanction.
There are two sides to this problem. Some can only see a single side. This latest round of rhetoric started with the application of some brand new
stifling sanctions designed to prevent NK from being able to keep weapons parody with SK and by extension, the US.
Just one question, why can NK not have Nukes if they want them. The only answer you can possibly give is because we don't want them to have them.
They are very likely to feel the same way, except you have thousands and thousands of the damn things and quite frankly, NK does not trust you not to
use them. Any sane person, looking at the MAD principal would feel the same.
Two school yard bullies come to blows, but instead of a winner and a loser, they take the whole school with them. That is insane! Possibly, other
people see the insanity as well.
When all is lost, when the sanctions are starving your people, you have only two choices and surrender is not the one you are prepared to take.
'You can have my gun when you pry it from my cold dead hands."
That could just as easily be NK's attitude, but then, you don't agree with that do you?
ETA Not directed at you, you rascally Wrabbit!
