"Kim Jong Un had focused on producing results in the economic sector but after failing to turn out any significant results ..."

Significant economic results could have been had more easily and at less expense than a nuke test. But of course, loosening the reins on your people is an ideological bridge too far.


Kim's doing something so that he has some sort of "accomplishment" for which to take credit uncomfortably reminds me of another national leader on the other side of the Pacific. Particularly the latter's deal with Iran, which he seems to view as an end in itself.
