Fear and Loathing in North Korea
The riddle of North Korea is easier to understand if you study not just the country’s missiles, but its history.

North Korea is led by Kim Jong-un, whose propaganda uses the specter of American menace to bolster his dictatorship. Reporter Mattathias Schwartz reports that Kim’s aim of instilling global fear gets an unexpected helping hand from President Donald Trump, whose political standing is also bolstered by exaggerating the threat of a nuclear attack from Pyongyang.
