Why I Don't Think We Have To Worry About Korea Post-Kim
Our experience in warfare for the past 16 years has been that every place we attack only gets worse.
This experience is all we need to know to understand that we ought not take Assad out. But that's a topic for another post.
North Korea is not the same. The "North Koreans" are the same people who live in South Korea. They are of the same family in many cases. The South Koreans can live at peace with the world. So I think we do not have to worry about whether the North Koreans can do the same.
Now it is true that the North Koreans have been led, and enslaved by a madman many years. And this may have made them sick in the head.
But if you are wondering whether they have lost all grip on reality, I don't think we really have to worry about that too much.
