  1. DPRK’s action is a little trick learnt from Mao Zedong in 1958 when he started Taiwan Strait Crisis. At that time, Mao’s purposes are (1) to split the U.S. and Taiwan’s strategy regarding defending forward positions near China mainland’s coast; (2) to test the U.S. bottom line in its reactions and determination of defending Taiwan; (3) to drag Soviet into a conflict that it did not want. In today’s world, South Korea is in Taiwan’s shoes, and China is in the position of the former Soviet Union. What a similarity in designs. Kim is a good student here. We should not be overly alarmed.
