Hecker's last paragraph implies a belief that there is some chance that the owners/rulers of NK might make a choice--the welfare of the people over the needs of the regime--that it has never made in the entire history of the DPRK. Naive seems like far too weak of a word to apply to that.

Probably a minor quibble, I know. But it seems obvious to me that only the forcible removal of that regime can ever lead to better days for that pathetic nation.

Yes I take your point, though I'm not sure that Hecker meant to imply that "normalisation" was ever a realistic option under the Kims.
