Today’s brief mind puzzle…. Why did North Korea build a thermonuclear bomb?

September 7, 2017

On Sunday September 3rd Kim Jong Un detonated North Korea’s first thermonuclear bomb. The explosion was a quantum leap five times more powerful than any previously detonated by North Korea, but one should ask why. Why does North Korea need such a powerful weapon and why does North Korea continue to provoke the worlds most powerful nations including their ally China?

For years North Korea has poked a stick at the world and the United States in particular in an attempt to get concessions that would help its stagnating economy. Previous administrations in the United States have traded enormous amounts of food and financial support in exchange for promises from North Korea that were never fulfilled. But lately North Korea is for some reason deliberately provoking the US and the world to take some direct military action. One can say as many do that Kim is psychotic but could there be an ulterior motive?

Could Kim’s nation be on the verge of collapse
and he sees as many leaders from around the world realized
that war would take his peoples focus off of him?

    Perhaps we’ll see a coup within the military… some must realize he must be stopped!

      Mike,

      I’m sure many within Hitler’s ranks realized the same thing; many may have tried & if so, they were no doubt dealt with in a swift manner. I think Jong Un has the same control & runs his regime identical to Hitler’s. His troops even march in the same manner. It would take an overwhelming effort both within & outside his regime to overthrow this lunatic.
