Earlier today, North Korea conducted its fifth and most successful nuclear test, with an estimated yield close to that of the bomb that destroyed Hiroshima. This dangerous and deplorable situation was predictable as noted on page 197 of the book my wife and I just finished, A New Map for Relationships: Creating True Love at Home & Peace on the Planet:

It’s a matter of self-preservation for them. Regime change probably would result in their being killed.
The book is now available from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and many other booksellers. It has received praise from several knowledgable individuals including former Secretary of Defense William Perry who called it “a truly unique book that tells an engaging and persuasive story relating domestic peace to world peace.” He goes on to recommend that, “This book should be read by married couples seeking peace at home, as well as by diplomats seeking peace in the world.”
