North Korea appears to have suddenly changed its tune, but this is only part of its longstanding survival strategy.

You missed out a key point. He threatened to use the big button on the USA, and Trump threatened to use his bigger button. The sheer threat of M.A.D from Trump is what made Kim change strategy. It was not “suddenly out of nowhere”. Do not attempt to rewrite history, I know hatred of Trump is trendy.
Amazing commentary and you definitely got some of Kim Jong Un to a T. But you're missing a lot. The truth is we don't really know what Kim Jong Un wants. You say it's purely to remain in power, and that is 100% part of it but we don't know what he's saying behind closed doors with Chinese and even South Korean leaders. You talk as if his main source of income is denuclearization deals with the United States. Well, then aren't we funding North Korea's nuclear program? Now that I think about it Kim Jong Un and the US are definitely discussing topics beyond nuclear weapons. Perhaps selling Chinese secrets? Hard to say. The US would obviously want a unified Korea under South Korean (US-allied) leadership that borders China. And China obviously would not want that. The US could provide Kim wealth and safety in exchange for this deal and this would be an attractive prospect because North Korean citizens are becoming increasingly doubtful of their own government. At the same time China is trying to revamp their image and are abandoning North Korea. Kim Jong Un definitely knows that his country cannot continue to survive as an isolationist country and needs to begin opening up. The politics of the area are immensely complex and what goes on behind closed doors is definitely far beyond what is made available to us as people.
+Tiago H. Ya like... a dick person hits there partner. is abusive they keep acting like that, when they say they want to break up they suddenly act like that changed. When they get what they want they are abusive again.
This is why I say the human race is dumb as a stupid they fall for that trick from North Korea over and over again and they'll keep falling for that same trick same reason why America is in decline in China is on the way up if this continues China will arrive in America in the Roman Empire part 2 of the 21st century will fall
will there be another Korean war? even if there was is dis boi dumb cause if he looks at history on what happened in every war the US and the Allies always win! Except for the Vietnam war, I don't know why we entered that in this first place.
I heard kids fight over mice to eat, and two kids were fighting over a kernel of corn from cow shit, this was from a defector that worked in the camps, idk why they just can't snipe him, hire a Hitman or something, he likes the young girls to, when he has a son next asshole in power, that's why he got rid of any family left so his son can take over maybe idk.
Such a bad inaccurate analysis. Lankov is very pessimistic. If you actually understand Korean and listen to various analyses done by Koreans who negotiated w NK for decades, they would disagree with an assertion NK sees nuclear weapons as a way to extract dollars to support the regime. In fact they keep saying they do not need a penny from the US. A similar suggestion by Pompeo got the talk stalled earlier. According to the best of Koreans involved in the past talk, Washington has NO North Korean expert. Read listen anything in English by American experts with skeptism.
Similar cycle happened with a terrorist organisation named LTTE in Sri Lanka. An organisation banned in EU, USA, India and UK. They get their asses whooped, peace talks begin. This give them time to rearm themselves, they commit another suicide bombing run, usually involving women and child soldiers and break peace talks. This happened about 4 times till a president finally grew a pair and wiped them out in 2009.
Funny thing is, as I am watching this, he's threatening with a nuclear attack. If America wanted to destroy NK, then they could. But it's a bad idea due to another world war. I hope this leader isn't willing to sacrifice his whole country over a world war just because he can't get what he wants.

Hello, guys. A bit out of this topic, but I'd like to take your attention regarding the fact that "Sea of Japan" is incorrect, but "East sea"is right. I know Japan insists that this is ridiculous Korean propaganda which is just confusing the world, because the term "Sea of Japan" has been used for 100 years internationally. However, from 16C to 19C, various kinds of terms had been used and the most frequent one was "Sea of Korea". In fact, "East sea"/"Sea of Japan" had gone down in history as "East Sea" for 2000 years. The first trace that "East Sea" was found dates back to when 동명왕 governed Goguryeo dynastay(One of the Korean dynasties. BEFORE CHRISTIAN). Also, 광개토대왕기념비 (monument memorial) in Ji'an, China, can prove it. Also, old maps of other countries, including China and Russia, and those in main European libraries say "East Sea". However, since late 19C and 20C, since Japan turned to be a successful modernized country and it colonized my country, currently many countries usually choose "Sea of Japan". Some people might think this is just blunt and boring issue, but for Korean, nothing can be more important, because it implies the rein of this area. I have a lot more things to write here, but let me terminate it. If you read whole of this, I really appreciate it.
why is war in three different colors . Did you mean this
W: is red and mean blood or death and it is for war versus south korea
A: is white so it means not much and is for time when the war stopped but they were every single second ready to attack
R: is blue and means something like peace
sorry for the bad english i come from germany and this is my first year
Full banana strategy will work leave them alone, we will soon come to conclusion of 1 united people from earth; then reach space. But first we got the rule those who don't want to for the best of all others. (english not my main language suck it)
This video is so extremely bias and misleading. Its honestly people who eat this garbage up w/o even questioning it that are keeping things from being fixed. The narrator acknowledges the facts but then perverts them with his anti-Trump bias, he literally even says “there’s a chance this all may go well with flying coolers” (aka I have no solid proof of evidence my theory isn’t bullshit but let me still tell you about it with a fancy flash animation) tf. You literally have to be next level stupid to actually eat this video up. The fact is, North Korea has NEVER gone this far EVER towards SK or USA, by the logic behind that he’s presenting they’d have way too pride to even get this far. Do your own research people and stop eating up every anti-Trump piece, I bet most of y’all can’t even imagine Trump being right about anything, that’s how far off the edge y’all have fallen smh..
your right about the past, but now is when that story falls apart. i predict N-Korea will be in peace mode from early 2018 and forward. Kim was given an ultimatum he believed, do this and that according to this timetable or you will be removed. And his reward for following this plan will be he will be in power until North and South is reunited, and will go down in history as a man who brought peace to his country, and retire with wealth in another part of the world. not up for debate, ill come back in a couple of years and write either, i told u so, or im sorry, i was very wrong.
Yawn. If the A-holes running the U.S. want Kim gone he'd be gone, U.S. population be damned. This is like watching two evil puppet masters(China and U.S.) scheming for power, resources, and control. Money and power, same old shit.
There is a pretty fundamental flaw with your analysis: He isn't fooling anyone. Nobody in a position of power is under any illusions over North Korean military capabilities, namely that they don't have any.
Simultaneously just about the worst thing Kim could do would be to make threats to the US that he actually has the ability to follow through on because at the end of day if it's clear that it's just talk you'll get a slap on the wrist and a stern finger wagged in your face but the US won't go to the expense of doing anything really threatening because A) we don't think it's worth the effort and B) we don't want to be seen as the aggressor. If on the other hand Kim started dropping nukes off the coast of California you can bet the US would destroy them pretty much immediately.
That's US foreign policy in a nut shell, we'll make noise and push for change but not really do anything if there isn't anything to be gained by us in that reform but we'll overreact and destroy anything that looks like a genuine threat. It's why even our biggest rivals don't make overt threats against us: because they know if we take them seriously it's a death sentence.
