While there may be a few high ranking military officers who know the folly of provoking a war with the US or South Korea, they would face immediate execution if they showed any wavering from Dear Leader's orders. Given the frequent purges of the military leadership their loyalty is almost assured. Since at least two generations of North Koreans know little or nothing about the outside world and have been brainwashed since childhood to firmly believe the propaganda being fed to them, it makes one wonder if there are any rational people left in the country's leadership.

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.”
