Situation reminds me of the Balkans in July 1914. I can't help but feeling like the clock with a countdown to something horrific, is ticking down.

I posted this before somewhere, but you would learn a lot about N Korea you don't know by watching it. Funny, weird, terrifying with a grand finale.

Here's the little Nork gem that caught his attention between the front and back nine. The KN-08. It's a dandy little truck rollaroundable missile that has people in the know asking the question "If they stop blowing them up and figure out their sh#t (and they will figure out their sh#t, see NASA Project Vanguard) just how far can that little sumbitch carry a nuclear warhead?"



Remember how much fun it was back in the day to find SCUDS on trucks in Iraq and blow them up on the ground before they launched? Yeah. Good times man, good times.

I'd be more concerned about China, Japan, Taiwan and the Diaoyu/Senkaku Islands dispute if I were you.

If China does decide to go all Genghis Khan expansionist they'll start in the S China Sea.

The Philippines are a much softer target.

But don't for a minute think that NK acts without China's at least passive permission.

The Chinese don't really like North Korea.

They are generally seen as an annoyance.

And China is not expansionist, but they do have a very strong sense of what they feel belongs to them.

What do we actually know? The current leader was carefully chosen with older siblings being passed by as unacceptable. This means that the regime is concerned with it's political survival and continuance in power. Which of course means they are not suicidal. I doubt anyone runs a country by being truly insane. Generals or leaders.

Could they become suicidal if they were to have their system unravel? Perhaps. Suicidal actions would be unlikely even then if history shows us much.

This rules out full scale invasion of the south or the use of their primitive Nukes. Although an open air ocean test might be something they would do.

One would expect them to continue to find creative and outrageous new ways to give the world the finger like they have for decades.

This behavior seems to work well for their internal politics.

Call it Tantrum diplomacy. It has allowed them to gain carrots from the world for toning down from bizarre behavior to merely poor behavior. Although this may no longer be working so well. It also lets them show each other internally how ballsy and loyal they are. It give them the ability to have an outside boogeyman to unite their peasants with. Peasant they deliberately underfeed in order to keep them weak and docile.

Basically N Korea is very predictable. Being outrageous and slightly dangerous is what they do, their MO if you will. You can almost set your clock by it.

It's getting boring.

Yeah, that makes a lot of sense!

Cuz the only economic resource the Philippines has is a cheap labor pool, and China really needs more of that.

You guys just dream up any old sh#t as an excuse to borrow money to build more military stuff.

If China was to go "Genghis Khan expansionist" they'll do it for the same reason the US has gone "Genghis Khan expansionist": OIL

But they'll need to build a navy first, and they've got a long way to go...

Huge offshore oil and NG deposits.

China is building a navy as fast as they can.
