I concur with the core of Philip W. Yun’s view in his Op-Ed on North Korea. But his “in short” paragraph is a great leap.

Freezing North Korea’s nuke activity is more than a longshot. President Donald Trump’s warnings are a recipe for disaster. Then there is the biggest risk, that the growth of the consumer economy will threaten Kim Jong Un’s “national myth of the regime’s historic destiny.”

Shaky leadership increases the risk of irrational behavior.
