Nothing suggests that Kim is suicidal. To the contrast, by all accounts he follows in seeking his bounty in this world. Should Kim hope to use nuclear weapons, he can be deterred - just as he hopes to deter America. Pyongyang should know that to start a war means the defeat and destruction of its regime and Kim dynasty. For Washington, the most satisfactory solution to the North Korea Problem would be Kim's surrender. Complete and abject. Abandon nuclear weapons.
