Although North Korea is a “sick” country, its regime will last longer than many other governments. Its political stability is at least better than Thailand which can be considered as "the sick man of Asia".

Thailand in perpetual political crisis and turmoil

Extortion and counterfeiting are there export industries...don't think otherwise. It's Iran that doesn't care if Armageddon arrives...

Only people who have never left this country or only listen to the pre-chewed US MSM believe that any country would start a war with the US first. Washington perpetuates the fear to keep the people willing to fund the war machine and not interfere with their hegemony quest.

The globe has become to small with the internet for them to hide. They don't want to die either.

Lindsey Graham has a Tea Party challenger. The MSM has not advanced a North Korea fear at all. Opinions of Republicans dealing with a Tea nuts challenger are best ignored.

Curiosity, maybe? If I had the wherewithal to do so, I'd like to go to Iran. Isn't it considered as part of the "Holy Land"?

Anybody who wants to go to North Korea should think long and hard. They may get in, but will they get out?

Analysts say North Korea's new missiles are fakes

TOKYO (AP) Analysts who have studied photos of a half-dozen ominous new North Korean missiles showcased recently at a lavish military parade say they were fakes, and not very convincing ones, casting further doubt on the country's claims of military prowess.

Since its recent rocket launch failure, Pyongyang's top military leaders have made several boastful statements about its weapons capabilities. On Wednesday, Vice Marshal Ri Yong Ho claimed his country is capable of defeating the United States "at a single blow." And on Monday, North Korea promised "special actions" that would reduce Seoul's government to ashes within minutes.

But the weapons displayed April 15 appear to be a mishmash of liquid-fuel and solid-fuel components that could never fly together. Undulating casings on the missiles suggest the metal is too thin to withstand flight. Each missile was slightly different from the others, even though all were supposedly the same make. They don't even fit the launchers they were carried on.

"There is no doubt that these missiles were mock-ups," Markus Schiller and Robert Schmucker, of Germany's Schmucker Technologie, wrote in a paper posted recently on the website Armscontrolwonk.com that listed those discrepancies. "It remains unknown if they were designed this way to confuse foreign analysts, or if the designers simply did some sloppy work."
More.
Thanks from RNG

Want to see what Iran was like before the US got involved.
Iran Before 1979 - YouTube

What a beautiful country.
