#ActualServant of the Lord

Posted 28 March 2013 - 10:44 AM

I don't think Kim Jong Un is delusional - he wasn't entirely raised in isolation and told he was a god, as far as we know, and we do know that he was educated in western colleges. The western colleges and his college peers certainly didn't worship him. (Edit: Whoops, European colleges. Switzerland, to be precise. Thought it was in London)

He might be underestimating how much of a response he'd get from pretending to almost go to war, but my guess is that this is a "We're going to go to war!" -> Bill Clinton heroically rides in as an ambassador to save the day -> North Korea agrees to slow down nuclear development, and scale back military buildup (which the North Korean civilians never hear about), United States sends aid and reduces trade embargoes (which North Korea tells its civilians are plunder or tribute or gifts because the world recognizes Kim Jong Un's greatness), and Kim Jong Un is made out to be a hero of peace and a amazing diplomat and someone the US is scared to fight in North Korea's media.
