Counting on rationality of a communist dictatorial regimes may not be so sound ...these regimes are potentially unstable: there is always a danger of somebody to decide to take advantage by proclamiming to be even more orthodox than the current leadership which either results in a coup or the leadership being pushed even more into the lalaland, this escalation of "holiness" may be unchecked if the controlling group is small enough ... My hope would be rather on a well placed group of Chinese operatives, then again they are themselves a communist regime ...

The fact is that there does exist a saber-rattling nut-job dictator who may wind up doing some damage if he slips or trips even just once. It does not take a rocket to deliver an atomic warhead, DHL can do it in just two days. So while we understand that a rational individual would not launch anything, that is not what we see in North Korea. So while we hope that nothing happens, and most believe that nothing will happen, the fact is that wishing something does not make it so. We all need to understand that.

Hilarious. Kim-Jon is apparently a sports fan and used to follow US sports given Dennis Rodman's visit there. Maybe he is an Aggie's fan.

North Korea will never launch an attack on the south or for that matter anybody. The reason for this is very simple. The top priority of the Kim-Jon Un and his henchmen is to stay alive and in power. Everything they do is to sustain their status-quo. All the bluster of attacking a few boats and launching missiles is for their own propaganda and to rally their impoverished nation against the enemy. They do this periodically and this usually results in the concerned world power giving them a bunch of money in the form of aid to go away. Just a simple shake-down at the global level.

"Sixty-five percent of the world’s DRAM and 55 percent of its flash memory is made within 85 miles of Korea’s demilitarized zone." That's the standout fact from this article for me. How is that not a big worry? Comparisons with Taiwan are ridiculous. There isn't a lunatic threatening to incinerate Taiwan.

I just had to laugh "attack plans that included Austin, TX". Now I know they are completely nut-so crazy. They obviously don't know their Texas history. Just ask any Texan how the removal of a humble little cannon in Gonzales, TX worked out in the 1830's. "Come and Take It!"

You also have to wonder, who most likely (say, ~60% probability) supplies N. Korea's memory chips?
