The DPRK has been like this for quite awhile. There's no reason to think it will fail now if it hasn't before. Famine in Bestest Korea is kinda like flooding in Bangladesh - it happens and will continue to happen.
On the other hand, Un Poco has been pretty damn quiet the last couple months, hasn't he? Curious. Perhaps he thought Trump was ready to pull the trigger.
Confirmation bias. The worst has not happened, ergo it will continue not to happen. Which worked fine for Libya,Persia, Iraq and the USSR until one day it turned out not to be true anymore. All authoritarian regimes fall over eventually, usually when they run out of lies and excuses to tell themselves.
That North Korea is going to fall over eventually I dont much doubt. What scares the hell out of me is what happens when it does,
Yeah, he has been quiet. Ive read they are supposedly trying to work out whether Trump is crazy or not. Im sure they have a lot of company on that one.
