What a silly little country.  Tragic yes, but silly.

At some point, they are going to fold and the humanitarian crisis is going to be staggering.

They should start launching these to the West, at least they could hit the ground and not the water.

Yeah. And China, which is the only country that supports them, is growing quite tired of their shenanigans. Without China, NK is nothing. It isn't much with them. Certainly nothing to be scared about unless you are SK or Japan.

Wasn't there a time when Caligula declared war on Neptune, and had Roman soldiers actually "attacking" the water?

/ gee, dunno what would've made me think of that
// John Hurt was priceless as Caligula in "I, Claudius"
/// But then, the rest of the cast included Brian Blessed, Derek Jacobi, John Rhys-Davies, and Patrick Stewart, to name a few

FTA: "Analysts say the tests were a protest against Xi becoming Beijing's first leader to come to the South before the North."

I'm not too well-informed on international politics. But there has got to be some sort of plan behind such a glaring slight.

Poseidon, the self-proclaimed god of the sea, is an imperialist tool against the People of Korea! In the names of Dear Leader and the Great General, we reject all gods. Therefore, Poseidon and his realm must be destroyed! Long Live the Glorious Democratic Peoples Republic of Korea! Long Live the Juche Ideal!

God god. Don't you people realize that the ocean is mostly made up of hydrogen and oxygen and that when combined that mixture is highly explosive? This madman is trying to blow up the world!!!

Well, we tried starving them out.
That didn't work.
We'll just wait for them to run out of ammo.

Classic western strategy.

Or Un actually turns the country around.  Nobody bothers reporting on the good changes happening now in DPRK but things there are changing very quickly.  Mostly for the better.  More cars on the road, privatization is sneaking into common life via the black market (which actually operates quite openly), increased tourism is bringing in dollars which are used for further development, etc.

DPRK is positioning themselves as the Cancun/Denver vacation destination for people living in Beijing.  The air is mostly clean, its a quick 2 hour flight away, and you can do outdoor activities without coughing up a lung.  Skiing, waterparks, etc, all at low cost.  And weed is legal (outside of Pyongyang City).

what's easier to believe

kim jong whatever is 3rd of a family of lunatics
 with millions of brainwashed people in a country almost no one can visit
but they get massive aid and food from civilized countries
and continuously lauch their missiles into the ocean...

or that this is a self sacrificing group of people
 supported by all other countries
 who's job it is to keep dread Cthulhu sleeping in the abyss

Un ain't doing shiat to turn the country around!  Tech (DVDs, cel phones, radios that can receive more than 1 station) is being smuggled in by folks from SK and China, and people are learning the truth about the rest of the world.

The best analogy would be what happened in East Germany in the mid-80s.  VCRs and camcorders were quite portable, so many made it into the country.  People would pirate videos and distribute them widely.  When the East Germans cracked down rather harshly on some dissidents, the violence was videotaped and obviously contradicted the official party line.  When people saw the truth, they began to look for ways to get out.  East German citizens began taking "vacations" to Hungary (IIRC), which had pretty lax border security, and crossed over into the West.  The trickle became a flood, Hungary did nothing, and we know the rest of the story.

Un and the party elite will end up like Ceausescu: up against the wall.  Some enterprising Army General will see the writing on the wall and take out as many as he can.

BTW, I call the effects of mobile tech on society the "Little Brother" Effect.  Our public behavior won't be shaped by a singular, all-encompassing power (i.e., "Big Brother"), but by the knowledge that there's probably a camera out there that WILL catch you doing the deed.  That's not to say Big Brother doesn't exist; it does in the form of the NSA and Big Business.  However, Little Brother will clearly be more pervasive and ready to video something at a moment's notice.  The Police State won't need cameras on every corner if the average citizen is willing to vid and upload to Youtube!

Maybe these are actually executions....they put people they don't agree with in the fuselage and launch them to the bottom of the sea.

I guess North Korea is campaigning against oceans because Kim Jong Whatshisface saw a manatee
and thought it was mocking him...actually, he was mocking the manatee.

I'd say Best Korea's attacks on the sea have been more effective than the USA's War on Drugs.   Still have to evaluate if The War Against Terror's effectiveness
