More like: Regime change and/or subsidies drying up...li'l Kim blusters and threatens.  Everyone worries, goes to DefCon 1 (locally).  Bluster dies down, new shipments of grain, li'l Kim is a hero to his people.

As someone currently stationed in South Korea and taking part in said drills let me be the first to say "Meh"

The idea that Kim Jong Un is identical to Kim Jong Il is absurd. But it's like people have no other framework with which to understand what's going on in North Korea, except "short, petulant dictator". It's way easier than trying to grasp a complex and mufti-faceted system.

For those of us who remember the USSR(though briefly), these baby games just don't cut it. The fear meter needle doesn't even bounce off of zero.

This time of year again already?  Why is this even news anymore?  At some point it has to become not news, just like the Palestine/Israel stuff.  I hear nothing about that anymore.

After listening to Dennis Rodman explain it, I'm still confused, so I'll just stick with jeering at the psychotic, drunk butterball.

So Rodman's diplomatic mission is actually bearing fruit? Sending an a-hole to deal with an a-hole may be the greatest bit of strategic thinking the Bureau of Diplomatic Security has ever devised. I wouldn't be a bit surprised to find out that rehab bit is just a cover for an extensive CIA debriefing session.

I think Glasnost and Perestroika were the less flashy version of the same thing. Either way, the injection of Western 'culture' will eventually eat away at their core ideology same as it did for us.

What's the story behind that one?

Ever notice how the generals or whatever who are standing with the Little Despot carry pen & notepad to write down his brilliant advice?

Rather that complain about how dumb and ignorant we are, how about you try explaining it to us?

I don't know, specifically. Probably the generals form a de facto oligarchy. But my only point is, none of you know either, and the fact that this weird phenomenon of two DIFFERENT people being regarded as the EXACT same is the level of analysis and discourse should be a wake-up call about, frankly, the entire American media, political, and educational system. And before you all dismiss me as crazy, remember that I'm the one NOT using the exact same jokes and characterizations to describe two different, again, DIFFERENT, people.

I hope NK goes full retard.  Yes, it will cost a lot of lives and most will be civilians, I am well aware of that.  However, the absolute ball busting curb stomping dished out by China will sort the entire damn situation out once and for all.

For all that China is considered oppressive (it is) and it's track record on human rights North Korea is far worse.

How are we doing that?  Other than 'dur hurr short guy with bad haircut' jokes?

We all acknowledge that Kim J-U went to boarding school in Switzerland, had a farked up family life, went from "who" to designated heir very quickly, etc.
Whereas his father was raised exclusively in NK, took trains because he was afraid to fly, had years as the designated successor to Kim Il-Sung, etc.

The things that are scary for the rest of the world are the things that they happen to be most similar. Raised in a cult of personality, unclear/fractious relationship with military cliques, flighty decision-making re: rapprochement with SK and USA, use of nuclear weapons program as bargaining chips.
