Always Another Hot Spot

How much do we know about North Korea, besides making assumptions about its skewed priorities and that it’s basically a munitions depot?

We’ve probably seen the pictures of the Koreas at night—South all lit up, North practically dark in its entirety because, as the explanation goes, the government of North Korea has decided to invest whatever money it has in military hardware, including nuclear weapons.

So, to hell with utilities and other infrastructure, and its citizens?

The recent rumblings in that part of the world, with China flaunting fighter jets and ships, makes me think that North Korea’s chest pounding from time to time is always in the service of China– that they’ll do their best to have China’s back, in case things go south with Taiwan.
