North Korea's motive

Here is an alternate view of what makes Lil Kimmy play the way he does. I'll just quote a couple of excerpts, but it is worth a read IMO.

Kim Jong-un views nuclear weapons as a way to escape fate of Saddam and Gadhafi

But Tobey and most experts agree that North Korean leader Kim Jong-un's No. 1 goal is self-preservation. For Kim, the pursuit of nuclear weapons and a missile program is a rational way to stave off attempts by the U.S. to overthrow his regime.

"I think most people ascribe a motivation of regime preservation to their nuclear programs," Tobey said. "So it would be used to deter any attacks that would be aimed at dislodging the government."

Philip Yun, a former senior adviser to two U.S. co-ordinators for North Korea at the Department of State, said that he has been in hundreds of hours of negotiations with the North Koreans. "Every single time during that period, they talked about [Slobodan] Milosevic and they talked about Saddam Hussein and subsequently talked about Gadhafi if they had nuclear weapons they'd still be there."

Could' a, would' a, should' a. The only relevant argument is, little Kim does have them and is threatening the U.S.. What his personal objective is, is secondary. His next overt action should be his last.

North Korea is doing nothing new. Every new us president gets some escalation from them at the beginning of his term. Tensions rise, talks are held, and then the US gives them more money. It's happened several times.

Or maybe he would like a cool billion or two to stave off his madness for the month? You know feed his people line, while actually padding his pockets and pouring more money into his wmd research. Wouldn't be a bit surprised if their bio weapons are far more advanced then we really know.
