Skip to comments.Is Kim in Control of North Korea’s military?

North Koreas dictator, Kim Jung Un is playing a mean game of chicken with South Korea and the United States. This is how chubby little dictators behave to gain the attention of world leaders and garner supportgrudging or otherwise of their own populace. Most likely he is in a power play with older military leaders in a political battle royal to keep himself in power.
This week the tyrant-in-training authorized the North Korean military to use untested nukes against American bases in South Korea. In poker this is called a bluff. It is also a ploy mainly for domestic consumption, not for external interests. Kim is untested and basically an unknown entity whose erratic behavior is a sign of immaturity which may lead to an inadvertent war. In fact, the only adults keeping Kim in check in the rouge nation are members of Koreas military leadership. During the current Kim power play, western think tanks and military officials have been unsure whether Kim is actually in charge of his own military. And that is obviously dangerous.
The current Chinese leadership under Xi Jinping has shown signs of losing patience with the nuclear ambitions of Kim Jung Un. In fact, China agreed with United Nations sanctions against North Korea after its most recent nuclear test. The mobilization of Chinas military along the North Korean border is likely an effort to control the flow of refugees and defecting North Korean troops should Lil Kim do something particularly stupid in the near future.

This description has a very familiar ring to it...
Kim3 is likely a puppet
” the rouge nation”
I don’t know.
Do not underestimate him. Just saying.
I believe hunger rules their army. I believe if the DPRK army starts amassing on the border, everyone in South Korea should start cooking BBQ with fans blowing the smell north. All the DPRK army would surrender for a full belly.
I think that many are doing just that.
See this thread:
People who are capable of things like that are capable of anything. They are NOT logical to many try and use logic when dealing with people like this. There isn’t much difference between the way Kim thinks from the way these young boys minds work who go into schools and preform their murderous rampages.
If he wants this war to go happen, he’d better keep one in the chamber as his enenmy approaches. Despots way out you know.
You nailed it!
“If he wants this war to go happen, hed better keep one in the chamber as his enemy approaches.”
Not gonna help if the Norks provoke nuclear retaliation. Not enough time to make the decision, raise the gun, and pull the trigger, esp. considering how inept he appears to be with handguns.
Only a reckless fool or a Democrat would wave a weapon around like that. LOL
Great post! Obama has a head start on KJU.
I hope this is real and I live in Ca.
Gotta go sometime.
Bring it you little snot.
I’m so damned sick of obama’s America that we might as well have it out right now!
And the rest of you inside-out islamists, here’s your effin’ chance too.
Yellow bastards, all.
Dissension in the ranks will not prevent this war posture and is in fact most likely causing it. The generals are well fed but I bet everyone below them knows what it means to go to bed with an empty stomach.
There may be no open defiance but it appears to me that Lil’Kim feels some domestic pressure so he turned to the tin-pot dictator playbook and it says “rattle sabre.”
