Here's my theory about the North Korean bullshit . . .
Consider the current situation, N Korea 'names Kim's successor' (BBC) . . . and the missile nonsense.
Kim Jong-un is a NOBODY. Kim Jong-un is going to be the new big man in NK--but globally he's a NOBODY . . . see where I'm going with this?
NK is using the missile launches to force everyone to watch NK as they throw Kim Jong-un's coming out ball (not the gay kind, rather the 'entry into high society'--not that he'll be hobnobbing any time soon with the world's elite, rich, and famous) . . .
Once the USA and other countries are all watching the coming out ball and the NOBODY gets to have his 15 minutes of fame to establish himself (at least in NK's eyes) as a global playa . . . and to point out his 'gangsta cred' (I'm guessing they might try to paint the missile launches as his idea) the whole situation will die down as long as the US allows the NOBODY-boy to enter discussions about nukes and all that jazz . . .
That's my theory.
