    I'm just patiently waiting for the day a random airplane flies by and starts dropping bombs on the U.S.

    North Korea needs to understand they can't take on the entire world.

    North Korea knows that the other countries aren't gonna all gang up on them at once if at all.

    North Korea knows its place pretty well. It pushes the U.S. around, and Americans never do anything about it.

    Why can't North Korea, which has never waged war against any other country in its existence, have nuclear weapons to defend itself against numerous aggressors, who are lining up carrier ships on its borders and threatening to flatten it?

    They don't plan on doing that. Neither do they plan to take on the US. The NK regime is not made up of a bunch of retards, otherwise it wouldn't have lasted. They are playing smart and hard. They have actually created a hostage situation, making it clear that if they get attacked, South Korea and possibly Japan will pay a heavy price in casualties. One that they or their western allies are not prepared to pay. At the same time, while they are holding off an attack on their mainland with that strategy, they are building up their nuclear arsenal, so that they will create a de facto acceptance of NK as a nuclear power and whatever negotiation advantages stem from that fact.

    The crucial point which doesn't seem to be that far off is when they will have the ability to actually reach the US mainland with a nuclear missile. It's very, very unlikely that the US will accept such a situation and that's why a real danger of war exists. The US would try to stop that before it happened. On the other hand, NK is not as stupid as to provoke an attack on their mainland if they can avoid it. Add to the equation China, which despite being the only ally of some sorts, has realized that NK has grown to be a major problem for them too. The fact that Beijing is inside the range of NK's missiles is probably not something that makes them happy either and they would definitely want to avoid a US intervention on the Korean Peninsula. China does have leverage over North Korea. That's why we also have intense negotiations between China and the US atm to reach some kind of deal on the issue and it seems that China is willing to help in that direction.

    It's a really complex situation.
