If bombs start falling in North Korea, and if Kim Jong-Un is foolish enough to retaliate, it won’t be hard to convince the American public that war was unavoidable, and that the president should be given broad leeway to do “what needs to be done”.
After all Kim Jong Un is crazy. He’s an evil buffoon with delusions of grandeur (he’s not about to be out-done by Mr. Trump). Mr. Trump has threatened preemptive strikes if North Korea tests a weapon and now he’s warning that a “major, major conflict” is on the table.

They’re both thin skinned, manicured, bullies, who mask their insecurities with pretense and bluster; tiny minds who make themselves feel bigger by putting others down.

Non-DPRK Hackers, or Another Scandal in the Korean Intelligence Service.
Some time ago, the author of this article and some of his colleagues, including foreign ones, began receiving strange letters, with attachments representing rather clumsy attempts to hack mailboxes or to access computer files. Some of these colleagues, who had no particular sympathy for North Korea, assumed Pyongyang had a hand in this, but a big scandal unfolding today in Seoul indicates that these hacking attempts most likely came from a completely different side of the 38th parallel.
