    Just what exactly are they trying to prove? I don't think they can scare the World into submitting to all their demands when we all know that they are practically starving... Maybe they should put to good use the money spent on this super-duper weapons on more down-to-earth things like agriculture... :confused:

    The Fat Kims won't. In his frustration of having a failed launch, I am sure a couple of hundred thousand North Koreans would have been executed for "bringing ill luck to the great successor's plans".

    Tell me something, why doesn't the US attack NK? Because it wants the North Koreans to exist as a dispute. Why does US not finish off Palestinians? Because it doesn't want Israel to get all powerful in Middle East? Why does US not destroy Pakistan despite it being directly or indirectly responsible for killing dozens of American nationals? Because it doesn't want India to be the sole power in South Asia.

    The whole idea to remain superpower is to keep discord alive in different areas of the world.

    The same criticism can be said of almost every country - India, China, even the US, where there are huge discrepancies in the population (esp whites vs natives/blacks/latinos)

    It's a sad, but recurring theme occurring throughout the world and throughout history.

    The Philippines on the other hand is the extreme opposite of NoKor. It simply does not like to spend for defence. Vietnam which has a much smaller economy has more advanced weapons and are buying more weapons than the Philippines.
