Little sister Kim and the Olympic delegation have returned home to a warm welcome from Big Brother Kim, confident in the knowledge that this is (thusfar) a job well done.Official portrait of Kim Jong-un greeting the North Korean Olympic delegation, arm-in-arm with Kim Yong-nam and Kim Yo-jong. pic.twitter.com/EA2gGtjV3P— Alistair Coleman (@alistaircoleman) February 12, 2018
Not only did they have the mainstream media giving them front page coverage (there's no such thing as bad publicity), they received an added bonus of Pence acting as a badly behaved and ill mannered guest towards his ROK hosts. as such, it is hardly surprising that Kim issued a personal thank you to ROK for hosting the delegation (thus drawing further attention to Pence's truculent behaviour and ill mannered demeanour).
Needless to say this "thaw" will not last, at some stage Kim will test something that will start the war clock ticking again. However, in the very short term, Kim can be confident that he has outmanoeuvred and outplayed the USA.
Hubris of course is a very dangerous cocktail!
