North Korea: Playing the lunatic card
Though it’s one of the world’s most isolated, impovershed nations in the world, North Korea continues to make broad statements about sparking war, increasingly threatening the U.S. and South Korea with its nuclear weaponry.
From reporter Barbara Demick, who runs down just how North Korea can get away with all of its antagonistic remarks.

North Korea deploys the craziness card to its advantage. The colorful bombast of its infamous propaganda mouthpiece, the Korean Central News Agency (threatening to “break the waists of the crazy enemies, totally cut their windpipes and thus clearly show them what a real war is like”) is designed not merely to intimidate but to convince the outside world that it is dealing with lunatics.
