i'm happy that God has you focused on North Korea...one day the "pharaohs" tormenting those dear souls will be gone, my prayer is that happens with none to minimal bloodshed, and that saints will flood in, preaching and teachings the whole Counsel of God.
This bit of savage palaber, fire breathing threats issued from the DPRK, its a regular occurence, a pattern of behavior,i call doing the "mad dog".
ie....test a nuclear weapon, or test launch a missile, maybe some maritime border incursions, then follow that with blood curdling rhetoric....."tensions rise"....and then you'll see 200,000 metric tons of wheat offered, 100,000 mt's of oil offered...wash, rinse, repeat.
because the sad facts are this, nobody REALLY wants reunification OR war...reunification?...the South Koreans for all their rhetoric dont want it, because they dont want to foot the bill, which would be 100 to 200 bln USD plus, the Chinese dont want it, because they dont want an American ally and possibly American troops, parked along their northern border on the Yalu and Tumen rivers....and nobody really WANTS war...the South Koreans dont, they've built that country into a gleaming jewel, the Americans dont, NK is built for defense, and the price in blood would shattering, the Chinese dont, because the NK's would use chemical weapons, that COULD invoke a nuclear US response.
the DMZ in Korea, arguably has to be one of, if not the most tense real estate in the world.
of course, heed these threats, but what has changed in the last 25 years, is that the north koreans do not have any chance at "air parity"...that means we own the 'air', and in modern warfare, set piece, if you cant control the air, all your above ground forces, armor, infantry, artillery are just sitting ducks...they know it and we know it.
Which is why this "mad dog" rhetoric is the only card the north koreans have left...meanwhile millions of souls in the north, are left in the dark...not even having a hope of hearing the Good News.
