North Korea test fired their short-range missiles. All this managed to do is escalate an already tense situation. All of the saber-rattling that North Korea has done has put the world on edge. A Japanese newspaper said that North Korea could be ready to test a long-range missile by the 4th of July. Given the past situations, I could honestly see them test firing a missile on the 4th of July in order to thumb their noses at the United States.
As I had mentioned in an earlier blog post, Kim Jong-il wants to have military superiority in the region at all cost even if it means his people going hungry. With the average North Korean person earning an annual income of $900, Kim Jong-il drinks a certain Hennessey cognac that sells for $630 a bottle in Korea. According to those around him, Kim Jong-il purchases between $650,000 and $720,000 and has become Hennessey's best customer. People escaping from the tyranny of North Korea also report that he has 17 palaces. His own people do not know about all of this. If they did, I believe his days as leader would be numbered. However, his military would easily crush his opposition.
I feel for the North Koreans.
