If giving The Kid Dick-Tator the green light to be recognized as nuclear power will tone him down, I say why not. That is if acknowledgment is the only thing he is looking for.
What is the difference? Giving him a title or recognition he wants so desperately can be just a formality. if that formality keeps this guy in check, Possibly he will quit rattling his Saber so loudly.
Whether it is acknowledgment or not, the boy is gonna do exactly what he pleases. Like Larry Holmes, all he wants is respect.
In my opinion, I think he would be less of a threat if he gets the pat on his back that he is so obsessed with.
Let’s face it, the hardline approach that is being used on him currently is getting the world nowhere. By giving him a Gold Star for his effort or not, he is going to continue to develop weapons of mass destruction.
As my theory has been for many years, it is much safer and beneficial for everyone concerned, even enemies should have an open line of communication. On all sides, this should not be an ego thing, but unfortunately, it is.
It is of the utmost importance to be smarter and two steps ahead of the adversaries.
Keep your eye on the hog and your finger on the trigger. Kill them with kindness.
