    Kim Jung Un is like a toddler playing with a handgun. We don't think it's loaded, but then, who can be sure? There must be a way to get it away from him before he pulls the trigger and we all find out.

    They've been trying for a while. They may not be connecting the dots as to why.
    Hussein tried to buy nukes for decades, never happened. Money even changed hands and no bombs. Not just bad luck.

    As aussie points out PRC won't tolerate that very well and if you off him they have more waiting in the wings.

    That's an issue for sure. I wonder how the PRC feels about that toddler playing with a handgun in their guest room?

    Maybe it's them who sees that his toys don't work. Only so many countries trade with NK.

    Let's hope they're right and that pistol really isn't real.

    I don't think the PRC care about Kim playing with his toys as long as they are not directed at them. THey are trying to keep the Norh Korean economy viable otherise their enemy South Korea will move in and be on their border.

    How by any reasonable definition can the North Korean economy be called "viable?"

    If that's their goal they're not doing so well.

    They do make money selling arms to muslims. I'd suggest replacing viable with on life support.

    Exactly. It's an economic basket case.

    I think he means that if they do actually perfect mushroom clouds they can divert resources to making mushrooms and stuff that's a bit more useful - the basic staples to sustain life food, clothes and wi-fi.... I think that's what the lads saying?
