Out of the blue, I’m hearing a lot of chatter about the DPRK doing something against ROK. What it could possibly be, I have no idea. In fact, it’s not so much them doing something at this point but WHY would they do something against their brothers to the south?
Kim Yo-jong may, somehow, in an unexpected position of power. The DPRK is a blackbox, so the idea that Kim Jung-Un is actually secretly dead is not a weird as you might think.
It’s possible the DPRK can see what we all see — that Emperor Trump I is an invalid moron — and they may feel it’s now or never. If they don’t strike the ROK now and try to get some sort of border adjustment, it’s just never happening.
Maybe things are a lot worse in the DPRK with Covid19 than we know and this is kind of a deathrattle freakout.
But there are some problems.
All of them involve the U-S-A.
Trump is just too both moronic and bonkers. If he felt he might be able to win re-election as part of a Rally Around The Flag war against the DPRK, he would likely go at it with great gusto.
And, then, well, things escalate and NYC, or LA are vaporized in a limited nuclear exchange between the two nations.
I just don’t see any of that happening.
It’s just another time where the DPRK wants some attention.
