"What if Kim Jong-Un is not a madman, and has a legitimate strategy in mind amidst this crisis?

Matt_ADMIN_Matt_ADMIN_ Administrator

Katie Stallard, Asia Correspondent, in Seoul

Let me be very clear - Kim Jong-Un is a despot who runs a totalitarian regime which is accused of committing crimes against humanity on a scale without parallel in the contemporary world.

This is not a fan note.

He is also not an idiot.

There has been a tendency to portray Kim Jong-Un as a cartoon villain - a caricature of a petty madman, with a bad haircut.

But what if he knows exactly what he is doing - and his logic is perfectly sound?

Look at this from his perspective, and just go with me on this.

Let's assume that Kim Jong-Un is not pursuing nuclear weapons because he wants to take over the world - this is not Team America World Police.

He wants a viable nuclear warhead, capable of hitting the US mainland, to ensure that a) no-one attacks him, and b) the major powers have to negotiate with him on an equal basis, as a fellow member of the nuclear club.

    Ya, ok.... 

    10 Most Ridiculous Lies North Koreans Are Made To Believe

    5. Kim Jong-Il Is The Best Natural Golfer & Bowler In The World

    As stated by the North Korean media, in 1994, Kim Jong-Il shot a round of golf that was record breaking, 38 under par on a regulation 18-hole golf course. Additionally, five of those shots were a hole-in-one and that was his first time playing the sport. Wow, incredible! His score was 25 shots better than the best round of golf in all of history. Golf wasn’t his only talent, though, North Korean media also stated that the first time Kim Jong-Il bowled, he scored a perfect 300! No other media organizations reported these news stories, however…

    4. Kim Jong-Il Is Magical

    Kim Jong-Il was reportedly a magical or supernatural or some other-worldly person. His official biography states that he did not use a toilet, because he did not need to – meaning he did not defecate or urinate. As insane and unbelievable as that sounds, it is a widely known ‘fact’ in North Korea. The lie was told to make Kim Jong-Il appear more “God-like”. Now, if a man that did not go to the bathroom wasn’t godly enough for you, Kim Jon-Il also claimed to be able to control the weather based on the mood he was feeling.

    3. Kim Jong-Il Cured Dwarfism

    In 1989, North Korea held an event known as the World Festival of Youth and Students. Astonishingly, Kim Jong-Il discovered a miracle drug that cured “shortness” and handed out pamphlets to recruit short North Koreans to receive treatment prior to the event. However, the dwarfism drug turned out to be a healing dose of deportation. All of the short people that showed up for treatment were rounded up and deported to uninhabited islands, so their defective short genes would no longer infect the population. Sadly, at least 1/3 of North Koreans are stunted due to malnourishment and in a predictable twist of irony, Kim Jong-Il was only 5’3″.

    2. Kim Jong-Il Was Extraordinarily Gifted

    According to ‘official’ North Korean records, Kim Jong-Il was extraordinarily gifted – as he learned to walk at the age of three weeks, and was able to talk a few short weeks later, at eight weeks. While attending Sung University, Kim Jong-Il wrote 1,500 books over a period of three years (more than one book a day) and six full-length operas. His official biography notes that all of his operas are “better than any in the history of music.” Between his sports skills and writing skills, Kim Jon-Il was one of the most talented men to ever live.

    Ephesians 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
  • To be fair, those are all about Kim Jong-Il or alleged propaganda policies that have been in place for a long time.

    Even if Un continues those myths about his dad or hijacked them for himself I think it shows intelligence, because he's making his people believe outlandish claims so they revere/fear and obey him. 

    The North Korean people have yet to rise up and overthrow the Kims in spite of having numerous apparent reasons to do so.  Would people incapable of rational thought (which is what a madman is) be able to maintain the situation over there?  I doubt that very much.

    I wonder how many of those things are actually the product of the North Korean propaganda machine, and how many are the product of the imaginations of quota-shacked writers at the BBC
