Kim's doing serious QA work on his missiles. Just guessing, financial incentives, based upon performance to be paid by the Russians - the big buyers.

Naturally, Iran & their proxies also want top notch missiles, Russia can surely 'broker' some missile transfers to these fine folks.

Lovely proxy world all thanks to US NATO Ukraine Proxy!

Still Putin's War and still a wretched starving regime in NK.

NICE!, exactly what Kishida wanted by teasing NK. just a propaganda routine.

We love you NK!

As I have mentioned before, Kim might be everything you can think of but I know for sure the guy IS NOT DUMB OR STUPID! He knows very well what he is doing.

US NATO Ukraine Proxy War's the WORLD's WAR, inflation, escalation to Mid-East, supply chain problems, weapons proliferation, economic damage, inflation, mass migration, weapons expenditures, high prices, etc.

But NK and Pres. Kim HUGE beneficiaries of above, NK economy expected to grow b/w 10 and 20% THIS YEAR, thanks to largely becoming massive weapons producer!

Naturally, Japan's security is one of the BIG LOSERS!

Sometimes I wonder if those kibds of country leaders are so bored or simply have lost the touch with reality. Just like puti.

One wonders how much seafood Kim has killed with all his missile tests - while his country's citizens starve...

It is the right of the North Koreans to conduct their life according to the socialist method, if this is their choice. It is not Japan's duty to prevent this. Japan should stay out of the Korean issue.

Kim-possible!!... but if his warmongering and invade SK, first of all War in Asia will unfortunately occur...

Also, we can call him from that point on "Invader Kim!!"

Kim is handsome. He showed everyone that he can withstand Western sanctions alone. And now, thanks to the West, he has more supporters. The motto of the West, “those who are not with us are against us” is no longer relevant. This is how to love and defend your country from the Western hegemon.

Yes, and hopefully someday soon Putin will achieve NK level poverty for his citizens as well.

IMF pegs Russian GDP at $35.3K/per capita, making Russia +5$Trillion economy, clearly #3 globally, though you won't read about their ranking in western media.

Russia also has essentially zero sovereign debt and massive amounts of resources, so a great balance sheet, unlike the west, So, yes, NK Kim's definitely interested in copying his mentor Putin, uplifting NK and joining BRICS!

Even if the claim that North Korea is impoverished were a true claim, this is not the business of Japan. Japan needs to conduct its own life, solve its own problems, and stay away from Korea.

hope hope. What were you hoping for when you attacked?

the whole crowd to North Korea even then a very long time ago and what now? You don't know where to run. Russia has everything to weather the storm, everything a person needs for life.

Lavrov in his ear again?

At least mass testing means his weapons aren't quite ready yet.

When mass testing stops that could be when real problem starts
