I agree with your statement. The DPRK could hand out a lot of havoc in the region with short range solutions. Or they could be working towards something very BIG. Bottom line, who are they trying to either force into a castle position or do they actually think they can maneuver into a mate position? The norks are hard to anticipate when hungry (compound too reports of the new kid not being received well, where does THAT leave “us”?).
My head is starting to hurt, just thinking about it.....time for bed.
