The tiny cracks inside North Korea

Adapted from an article published in The Christian Science Monitor, July 5, 2017.

With conspicuous ceremony on the Fourth of July, North Korea launched a missile that had more than a technological purpose. It aimed to promote fear. With each new test, North Korea is clearly trying to send a message: With each passing day, its circles of destruction widen.

Yet earlier this year, a different kind of message was sent—this time to North Korea. It came from the highest-level North Korean defector in years, and he offered an assessment perhaps as frightening as a missile test to Kim Jong-un’s regime. “Kim Jong-un’s days are numbered,” said the diplomat, Thae Yong-ho.
