Kim Jong Un has hardly the,resources to reach “military equilibrium” with the, U.S.
Having said that he is demonstrating that by starving his people he is endeavoring to punch way above his geo political weight class with rapid progress in both nukes and mobile missile successes.
If you watched the eye opener CNN “Secret State” hour long report last night on what life is like inside the Democratic Peoples Republic of Korea the starving population is beholden to thought control by their dear leader with the threat of torture and death in the gulags for any opposition.

A North Korean Lieutenant Colonel interviewed believes that the DMZ is on a war footing. That is reflected even among North Koreans living less than 3 miles from a dynamic South Korea who believe they are better off. Bizarre.

That is what the U.S. and the West are up against.
