North Korea is attempting to come up with powerful defensive weapons in order to keep from being invaded by the U.S. Their alarm is quite evident since the U.S. is provoking them with a great surrounding military. They certainly have every right to be feeling intimidated.

They certainly understand that attacking the U.S. would be suicide, and result in the death of thousands of poor innocent North Koreans, not to mention our U.S. troops lined up on their border. So their weapons acquirement has to be defensive, no matter what our continuing propaganda declares.

Our military is seeking weaknesses in their defense even as I write. I am afraid we’re going to start a war and blame it on them, saying that we could not wait for them to act first, when they actually had no plan to act at all. We will be falling for our own propaganda.
