The driving force of North Korea can only be Fear which is the mother of all other derivitive thoughts and actions of hostility.

If North Korea is thinking with its Isolated Mentality, which it is–it will continue to do what it has always done which is what is being done now.

Perhaps, a way to prevent Escalation of the Perennial Hostility would be to lessen the Perennial Fear.

The Scales weighing these things one against the other are ever seemingly out of Balance.

Has Human Intellect ever been able to fully prevent the Miasma produced by the kind of Emotions which are derived from warzones and graveyards of Fear?
