    firing at a defector is business as usual, otherwise it would be an open border crossing?

    Once NK proved nuclear capability, it ensured Kim’s regime long term. The ICBM is just icing.

    taking out KIm via a seal team or a drone strike is no longer an option. Other than a full scale 200,000 US troop land force and naval air invasion with complete take over US can’t do anything politically to destabilise him, in fact they are impotent.

    Say US did take him out or caused coupedetat, does that t ensure West leaning moderates will take over, or another even more ardent potentially delusional crazy dictator itching to fire the missiles.

    Gaddafi didn’t have nukes and agreed to dismantle his nuclear program.
    More importantly, has it become democratic country?

    One must remember, Kim’s Nuclear ambition is ultimate survival weapon.
    Kim isn’t going to use it, just because simpleton Trump dares him on Twitter.

    The only time Kim will use it, if his power and rule or his life is threatened by internal/external political dissent or internal/external armed forces. Kim is survalist and he knows there is no scenario situation where he uses a nuclear bomb and he gets to live.

    Pyongyang announced in a statement read on North Korean state TV that the missile was the Hwasong 15, and is capable of hitting the US mainland. It went on to declare the country to be a full-fledged nuclear force.

    "North Korean leader Kim Jong-un announced that the country has realized the great historic cause of completing a state nuclear force," the statement said, as cited by Yonhap.

    But he wanted to trade oil in something other than US$ which is evidently considered much more dangerous.

    'FIRE WITH COURAGE'
    North Korea boasts it has become a full nuclear state after launching missile that can hit anywhere in the world…as Donald Trump says ‘we’ll handle it’


    Pyongyang said the new powerful missile reached an altitude of around 2,780 miles - more than 10 times the height of the international space station - and flew 600 miles during its 53 minute flight before splashing down in the Sea of Japan

    The other side of the story.
    This is how NK propoganda interprets the facts of Korean war.
    (as, I understand this is NK view on the war actions of US and SK
    in Incheon)

    Hence, the determination to have the means to defend themselves.

    Apparently the only one they need to defend against is Kim and his cronies. You know a country has great leadership and is a wonderful place to raise a family, when they shoot at you if you try to leave. Why do you suppose that is? Like the guard who defected recently with the previously unseen parasites in him.

    Lets be fair now Jim.
    If a USA army soldier was attempting to defect across enemy lines and his comrades saw him they would most likely shoot him as well.
