The "problem" with NK is the potential refugee problem into SK when the regime implodes

I don't think either China or SK really wants to deal with that

Whether they want to deal with it or not, you yourself admit that the regime will implode at some point. It is a matter of when.

It is always good to have a plan.

It's pretty obvious North Korea going to fall to pieces at some point. No one wants it to happen because it likely to end explosively violently with a massive refuge crises..... but no one want a nutjob with nukes and the mindset to fire them either.

I think the "One China" stuff and other disputes in the region highlight exactly why none of those countries are really wanting to do anything about North Korea.

Kim Jong-nam killing: Senior N Korea diplomat named as suspect

I wonder if this will cause a strain between Malaysia and North Korea if the former is force to take action to find the suspects?

According to Wikipedia, after the split of North and South there was a rush from North Korea to obtain recognition as the "True Korea" by putting Embassies where it can. This includes most of Asia. But in the end most nations just accepted both Koreas separately.

North Korea wasn't strong enough to be able to demand that South Korea be not existing, unlike with Chinas policies.

North Korea condemns Malaysia: North Korea has said Malaysia is responsible for the death of one of its citizens and is attempting to politicise the return of his body.

North Korea is just asking for trouble in they're treating Malaysia like that. Not only are they lying on how Kim Jong-nam died but also accusing Malaysia of killing him?

North Korea probably can't publicly admit they ordered the assassination. Killing one's brother looks bad in any century for a ruler. But everyone knows that no one else on Earth wanted the guy dead. The outrage is just for looks.

North Korea still need to keep up appearances, they can't actually truly throw it all away and admit they are in a monarchy.

That's what they are. Only a person with no concept about how monarchy works would not get this fact. It's also the reason why I believe anyone who wants to get rid of a vital part of the regime would have to make sure the Kims' direct bloodline dies, almost in the same way some countries have destroyed their own monarchies in the past.

Well I know that Sultans had been expected to kill their siblings to prevent civil war. But a surprising many cultures still looked down on killing rival family members. In Ancient China and much of Medieval Europe, it had been more common to just imprison one's relatives instead of killing them.

No, that's not how it works. If you just want to remove a dynasty you just had to de-legitimise them. That was how the German Royal Family got removed. They didn't die, they just lost their titles. You only needed to kill the dynasty if you want to replace them as king.

Only NK would have wanted and needed the brother dead. Anyone who wanted NK government to change would have prefer the brother around for symbolic transition.

LOOOLLLOLL


Either her main role was to recruit south koreans and got shoehorned into assassination because reasons....or she seriously got tricked into participating in a "prank"



Actually checking out the actual links....I kind of incline to the latter.... at the very least if her FB page is meant as a honeypot....it sucks. It's far more a personal page than honeypot

Kim Jong-nam killing: 'VX nerve agent' found on his face

Ok that is scary. This gives a new light on why North Korea is demanding Malaysia to return the body to them. North Korea used an illegal chemical weapon to assassinate Kim Jong-nam and were trying to cover it up. Malaysia is not gonna be please by this.

That's almost overkill. But it also makes it more likely that the assassins didn't know they were killing him. Because they were not skilled agents, NK were forced to use a toxin that doesn't take skill to administer.

VX doesn't take skill to administer?


If the thing touches your bare skin in even minute amounts, you are dead...



Then again, it's not like they would care about their agents and the best way of killing is still to get someone else to do it for you. I wonder what they would have done had Ms LOL accidentally poisoned herself though..

My understanding was that they had two girls precisely because the VX was split into two safer components that was deadly when combined. They each sprayed him once with different bottles.

And the two girls were foreigners and likely prostitutes. They were also not paid very much for it. If they were real assassins they would have demanded to be paid more.
