North Korea shoots off another ballistic missile. Taunting Trump further.

They keep pushing the envelope. Can’t say North Korea is too concerned about a US attack. Which appears to be bound to happen.

Then again, this may be North Korea’s end game – start a war, lose the war, get forcibly reunified with South Korea. PROFIT!!

Not that I think the leader (either NK’s or the US’s) is smart enough to plan that way – but his generals might be. The leader will be held responsible. The generals and all the other military men will benefit from losing such a war.

I’m not sure if anyone ever considered that angle.

  1. Well, so far NK has proven to no longer be beholden to, or listen, to China – so letting the US bust NK would just let them save face.

    China might insist on maintain NK as a separate neutral ‘buffer Zone’ though – then again, they only have themselves to blame.

  2. Also, to be quite honest – ANY other US administration, I,would be confident of being able to pull off a swift victory. The current guys in charge, not so much.
