I heard on NPR this morning about how North Korea had “ignored warnings” about testing its missiles. I laughed out loud, because why wouldn’t the DPRK ignore warnings? When has ignoring warnings ever turned out badly for the DPRK? South Korea didn’t stop food shipments, they just announced that maybe they would think about maybe stopping them. The DPRK is now stealing trains from China. The Chinese send in aid shipments on trains, and the DPRK sends back just the crew. I suspect in that case the train stealing will be stopped, but I will bet a chunk of cash that the DPRK gets to keep the already stolen trains, which would seem to be a win for an apparently crazy policy.
