Just how much POL does "Dear Leader" have on hand assuming he's stupid
enough to start a war.

He doesn't want a war.

He just wants to be left alone to oppress his people and try and blackmail
tribute from Japan and China.

He'd like to rule the South as well, but he's prepared to pass on that one.

I've seen things you people wouldn't believe.
Barbeques on fire by the chalets past the castle headland
I watched the gift shops glitter in the darkness off the Newborough gate
All these moments will be lost in time, like icecream on the beach
Time for tea.

As often as I disagree with Wm, here he's on the right track. "Dear
Leader", ruling a country with no viable capability to become economically
self-supporting, has no real alternative but to come up with schemes by
which others can be forced, cajoled or convinced to provide subsidies.

The "we'll quit playing with nukes" ploy during the Clinton years was
certainly a successful scheme which brought substantial fulfillment of needs
from food to POL (without lessening development ofa nuclear program).

The latest chapter is simply a logical next step....almost as was SH's
"nuclear program", the "I'm packing a big hawgleg into the saloon, and
those *******s better buy my drinks." approach to international economics.

Judging by the number of people in DPRK that are not able to heat their
homes because of no heating oil, I would say that he has very little.

Or you could say he has enough for himself, his military and his
buddies and doesn't care to share with the rest of the country.

Bad judgement, I'd lay odds that the military has more than enough
POL squirelled away for a war.

Yes, but you'd not be a good socialist if you said that...

He doesn't need much, he'll get everything he wants and more from China just
like in '50.

I rather doubt that, China has been giving the DPRK
just enough fuel and food to prevent collapse. The
China of today needs access to world markets,
ultimately they value that more highly than any links
with the DPRK.

Are you saying North Korea is a social disease? A few million doses
of penicillin will cure that. Come to think of it tertiary syphilis
could explain Fearless Leader's behaviour.
