On NK leader Kim Jong-un. How do you treat a mass murdering, sadistic, narcissist dictator when he decides to join “Crimes Against Humanity Anonymous”?
First you give him a Nobel Prize, to reward him for revealing the nice boy inside you always knew was there. Then he gets free lifetime counseling - and meetings - so he can cry out the pain that made him rage./s
That being said, if you jump him and throw a Criminal Court at him he'll stop with the friendliness and go back to nuke testing. You have to make him comfortable coming out more and more from his hovel. When he slack's off that's when you take him out (choose your own method). So long as you don't piss China off they could go along with a full merger of the 2 Korea's.
It really boils down to a matter of affordability~
Do they have their weaknesses? Certainly. Their governmental structure supports a black market instead of free markets which decreases tax revenue. They openly suppress and control the media. They are largely dependent on oil revenue. And they like to throw around their military weight in neighboring countries like the Ukraine and now Syria. Have they to some degree been overshadowed by the Chinese and the North Koreans in political circles? Sure. But I think Russia is far from a paper tiger.
This is why the USSR backed off from the Cuban Crisis that me dino and friends sweated though as kids. Those "duck and cover" Civil Defense films were scary back then.
Methinks Rocket Man came to realize that North Korea is by far a smaller target than Russia that the USA can obliterate with pinpoint accuracy with a lot more nukes.
