I am pretty ignorant to the situation, but Has NK actually attacked anything or anyone yet?

Devils advocate: Sure they have something to gain. We're a thorn in Russia's side. What if NK will be "that guy" who is willing to go punch the obnoxious USA in the face? What if by aligning them with friends of Russia (Cuba) gets them a bit closer?

What if Putin is plain bored and is looking to mix things up and see some real fireworks?

I get where you're coming from, but other than starting a war to take down the USA, there are no other benefits.

Either Putin has a master poker face or I actually believe him when he says he has no interest in the USA or it's politics, or any other countries in fact.

Russia really has nothing to gain by risking it's very existence for two pieces of land that are essentially meaningless otherwise.

Already said no and disagree that its even a valid comparison. Because as you've already pointed out, its basically sort of legal for someone with true diplomatic immunity to do so. Sort of.

Yeah, except THAT one little detail. Taking down the USA. Want to take a shot at compiling a list of things that would change in the world if the US ceased holding its spot at #1?

Yeah, we need to stop being THE super power and start being A super power.

Which means taking care of our house and playing well with others.

Nuclear action is a last ditch desperation effort only IMO.

Whats going on right now is basically the equivalent of when I'm drunk, look over to my friends and say "you got my back if I start a fight right?". Then I point to the biggest guy in the bar and wait to see what my friends say.

Kim is just trying to keep his image in the country. Information is harder to contain so he has to show off to get his people to change subjects and believe the bullshit he sells. (Like the story of the NK guard who bolted for the border, NK is saying one story but the NK people hear the speakers from SK as they are broadcasting the true news over their borders to stir things up)

Personally I think we just ignore the fool like a child. He just cries wolf and isn't going to do shit because he would have SK and China on his ass instantly followed by the US close behind. It would be a short, losing fight and anyone with eyes can see that, even him.
