    Sad, but scary, since we have no clue about this guy or his advisers. We’re relying on 2nd,3rd and 4th hand reports.

    I would like to think that if all of those ancient men in military uniforms were to suddenly catch a particularly bad flu, this young man would be much more amiable to improving relations with SK and the USA.
    In our country, we say, Lead, Follow, or Get out of the Way. I think the oligarchy of military leaders who stand behind Kim Un are telling him, Pretend to lead, Follow our instructions, or die.
    I may well be wrong, however, I pity him.
    Respectfully,

    You hit the nail on the head! They probably even don’t have to threaten him, he is so brain-washed (like the rest of the population) that he thinks “This is how things always have been, this is how they should be!”. A “Heraldry Communist Leader” is an oxymoron that would have Marx and Engels rotate in their graves!

    -

    PS: Did I get “Heraldry” right in this context? I meant “from grandfather to father to son”…

    I think you mean hereditary? Heraldry usually applies to the coat of arms on armor, banners and shields. Like the coat of arms for German cities. I have several mugs with the colors of Heidelberg, Koln, Munich, etc given me by my uncle who served in Germany in the late 50s.
    hope that helps.

    they starve their people in order to develop bombs with which to threaten the rest of the world…

    I was looking at night pictures taken from orbit of that part of the world. Japan, China, and South Korea were lit up while North Korea was a black spot. For some reason it made me feel very sad.

    The only thing really keeping North Korea from collapsing under its own weight is China. Sometimes I wonder if it’s some sort of idealism thing, propping up one of the few Communist countries remaining in the area, trying to counterbalance the US-backed South Korea… or if China simply doesn’t want to deal with the flood of millions of refugees that would come flooding over their border if North Korea folded.

    I get the impression that whenever N. Korea starts to make these nonsensical claims, it is just a way for them to get the U.S. to the negotiation table so they can get more food aid or whatever without looking like they are begging.
    If they can claim through the Official News Agency that they have threatened the U.S., and that the “Imperialist Running-Dog Lackeys” are paying them bribes of food aid to NOT use their fearsome weapons, then it’s merely a face-saving ploy and propaganda for them to feed their
    people.
    Since N.Korea, and the rest of the world KNOWS that within about 3 seconds of a missile launch from ANYWHERE on the Korean Peninsula we would know it, be able to shoot down whatever missile they might actually be able to get to fly, and it would bring down swift, and very violent retribution, it’s all just a show for their people.

    Seems their Military Industrial complex is running the country. (hint hint)
    Is it crazy to act this way when feeling oppressed from every direction?
    Have we not seen this type of response/action in the past?
    {1930’s Germany?}
    Can we find some way to peacefully bring them into the world community or do we just pound them over the head and possibly make matters worse.
    [just spit-balling thoughts]

    Kim Jon Un was educated in Switzerland so it isn’t like he has never been any where other than the homeland.

    KIm does indeed have a significant education, and also exposure to “the western world”. North Korea is a tragedy, and still technically “at war”, as only a cease fire, never an armistice was ever signed. It gave the U.S. decades to spend trillions of dollars on “defense”, and gave us another enemy to “fear”, like what, Venezuela? Oh, wait, Chavez sells us oil!


    ALL dictatorships have a history of bravado, especially marginally “communist” ones. What the U.S. SHOULD take as a warning is the threat of feudalism here at home, driven in part by that “military industrial complex”, and the tenth of one percent who control so much of our economy. It isn’t JUSt the wealth they hold, but the power to manipulate “things”, like Congress.

    The ‘Sleeping Giant’ is Iran, they’re secretly building Nukes and a long range missile to deliver the payload to many USA Trargets

    Not so secretly. We don’t have assets on the ground to show us exactly where, and bunker busters only do so much damage to hardened and deeply shielded sites. And their program appears to be spread out so that damage to one facility doesn’t halt the program. The computer virus developed under Bush and kept by Obama worked great until the bug escaped and we learned about Stux-Net.
