What North Korea probably isn't doing

What famous person stated "we've got to stand with our North Korean allies"? I'd say it was Jimmy Carter.
Pyongyang has sent a consistent message that during direct talks with the United States, it is ready to conclude an agreement to end its nuclear programs, put them all under IAEA inspection and conclude a permanent peace treaty to replace the "temporary" cease-fire of 1953.
In other words, North Korea is being more self-isolating and militaristic because it really wants to be less isolated and militaristic. I don't think so. I think North Korea is being true to what it proclaims daily is its guiding philosophy. I don't have any glib suggestions for what to do about it.
