Motivation behind Kim Jong Il
When North Korea blew up the nuclear bomb the world was horrified and very upset with North Korea. But Kim Jong Il had to know that the world would respond negatively, so what was his motivation? I think that he is unable to fix his country by himself and is trying to get other contries to help him bring his to it's feet again. I think he is using the bomb as leverage to get what he needs to help his country which isn't good becasue he can continue to use this bomb to get what he needs and manipulate other powers. This could just be a far-fetched theory though.
