    Agreed, NK's leadership is irrational, and many of its troops and citizens are brainwashed.

    Accidents, blunders, and unintentional consequences can spiral out of control, leading to a war no-one really wants or benefits from.  

    That said, war in Korea doesn't seem likely to me, I think they are bluffing, and their bluff needs to be called. The leadership of the army and govt know that if all-out war with South Korea breaks out, the US will enter in and they will lose power. I don't think China will not bail them out this time, (especially if the US is clever and offers control of the North to China). But it means things may get VERY tense there, with very high stakes. Not something to look forward to.

    I worry about NK spreading nuke and satellite technology to anyone who will pay for it.
