    If North Korea didn’t export so much rhetoric the world wouldn’t even be aware that North Korea existed. Without that rhetoric they would truly deserve the Hermit Kingdom moniker that’s been hung on them..

    Agree that the whole thing is for domestic NK consumer,potion. There’s a power play going on in there. Only problem is that someone might screw up and start something they didn’t intend. One of those matches might actually light.

    17 lit, 9 did not. It was not hard to count.

    Maybe if he burns his finger he will stop…or throw the match the wrong way.
    Maybe some drone should just shoot him.

    The problem is ingrained in the North Korean culture. The ruling class is extremely corrupt, and the people are beaten into submission. They all exist in a false world view that perpetuates its miserable self. The only way to break the terrible cycle is to educate the people and encourage them to overthrow their sadistic leaders. But the first rule of communism is to lie to the people and keep them ignorant and submissive. With all the pain that the North Korean people have felt daily for over sixty years, I wonder when they will finally revolt. For their sakes, I hope it is soon, and I would even support a joint South Korean / American initiative to reinforce the revolution. Too bad the current administration is too afraid of China to interfere.

    Interesting that the “righties” in the most powerful military country in the world, with so much of the economy dedicated to waging wars around the world, and looking for more, can drum up so much fear of a kid playing with matches.

    Interesting nobody notes what SOUTH Korea has available at their disposal, or on immediate “loan”. Also interesting how all the joint “training exercises” conducted by the U.S. and Seoul are always just “defense” , and never “inflaming” local tensions.

    tigger: Washington and Oregon still face more “nuclear” problems from Hanford, and the development of the first bombs, than Kim.

    I’m not (yet) so worried about North Korea, but someday — if we don’t manage to get control of this problem — someone is going to let one blow. Maybe not in the next week, or the next month, or the next year — but can you be sure about the next decade? The next century? We are short term thinkers with a long term problem.
