I just donít see it happening, it all looks like a front to me. The Kims have had their iron grip on NK for three generations why would Jong Un take a new direction now?

We shall see

It's a valid point and the fall of Rome has little to do with it.

Why WOULD rocket boy change direction?
Because he wants to be remembered as bringing peace to the region?
He wants to be known as the one that brought about the end of the Korean war?
He wants to bring prosperity to his people and reunify Korea?

Based on his history, including killing his brother, those reasons seem unlikely.

What are more likely reasons?

Because his back is against the wall?
He has little choice?
He hopes to twist this so he can run the whole show if the 2 are unified?

I'm sure y'all can add some more reasons that are more likely than what his public statements convey.

You missed the point that Rome was in power for at least 1,000 years. The "Kims iron grip" doesn't mean in comparison. Nothing is forever. Rome killed Jesus, just sayin'

I got your point. You made your point.
We are following along. The audience isn't as stupid as you seem to think.
Thank you for unnecessarily clarifying.

Now let's let the discussion continue, shall we?
