Regarding YOUR SNARKINESS
I don't really know that much about Norkia. What I know is that propaganda is not the exclusive privilege of commie tyrannies. Our plutocracies do that, too. So, not all we hear about Norkia might be the truth. It might even be that Mr Kimmo plays a very valuable role for our plutocrats by making noise when silence is not good for US.
Secondly, you can say lots of things about commies, but what they understand is the security business from spycraft to fighter planes. Kimmo owns quite a few Mig29s which can potentially outturn anything the Sorks and Merika can muster, including the F22. So if the Norks find a way to tun of Merikas electronic advantage, they could stand a real change to win dogfights.
Regarding commie intelligence and long-range, covert reconnaissance forces - they were beating the crap out of services such as Germany's BND. In virtually all ways, including signals and computers.
What did the commies was the sleazy capitalist businessman exploiting his workforce, churning out massively more stuff at much higher quality. It was NOT their military and security forces, but the rot resulting from economic weakness.
Maybe Mr Kim simply has a Military Computer Science Unit ? Complete with professors of Colonel rank ? Tyrants are very often very concerned about security and consequentially "move fast" in new security things.
