Anyone remember when...
... the USA faced off against threats from the Soviet Union? Now it's worried about containing North Korea.
To put that in perspective: North Korea has a GDP of $12.4 billion. That's slightly smaller than Bristol (England), or in US terms it's less than the city budget of Washington, DC. That's right: Kim Jong-Un, even if he personally dictates how every one of his people spends every hour of their lives, still commands less resources than the mayor of Washington.
