Why Is North Korea Building ICBMs? Ask Michael Corleone

North Korea seems obsessed with building missiles that can threaten the U.S. homeland—and showing off its developments to the world. But the bigger story seems simple: why are we still so shocked?

To be clear, anytime a rogue regime does something like displaying increasingly advanced long-range missiles we should be concerned. And North Korea is the most rogue of regimes out there. It has killed, according to some reports, over one million people in its gulags, has large sections of its population in prison camps—one camp is three times the size of Washington DC—and can’t even feed its own people most of the time.
