Some in the world and here on ATS have been trying to point out that there are alliances here that are deadly serious and very real. Just because our
National Leadership chooses to make light and humor of them, doesn't mean they aren't as serious as a heart attack.
Now I was fully aware of the DPRK/Iran Alliance and mutual aid. Syria is a bit of a surprise, but since Iran has formal mutual aid and military treaty
commitments to Syria. I imagine the ally of my ally is also my ally for the DPRK's thinking and why not?
Aside from that, North Korea is HARD core communist in the old school style. In other words, military men in North Korea didn't volunteer and they
didn't get asked. They got told, young, this is what you will be for xx number of years, or for life ..depending on how good the Pyonyang Government
figures each individual is at it. So...I wouldn't sell them short. Not even a little bit. Their idea of an easy day back home would break most
Jihadis in short order for hardships taken as routine parts of life, IMO.
