Obviously North Korean leader Kim Jong Un isn’t the brightest egg in the omelet, but he is smart enough to know that if he launched an attack on America he would only have a few minutes left to write his will.
He must have seen the movie “The Mouse That Roared” and decided to try something similar; if he didn’t have the capacity to throw the world into turmoil the whole situation would be comical.
No one knows for sure what has caused him to become so angry, but my guess is that he looked in the mirror when he got home from the barbershop and flew into a fit of rage.
Fortunately we have two things in our favor: We could send Dennis Rodman over to calm him down by shooting a few hoops with him, and if that didn’t work out we could scare the Chinese into reining him in by threatening to stop borrowing any more money from them.
Now that would be hardball diplomacy.
