Michael Malice appeared on Tucker Carlson Tonight to talk about North Korea’s recent threats. Malice, unlike most of the people you’ll see on television talking at length about the tiny totalitarian country, Malice has actually been there and studied its history extensively.

The picture that Malice paints ain’t a pretty one, but it’s an honest assessment from someone who knows the subject matter inside and out. Bravo to Tucker for bringing in Malice instead of some rando Fox News contributor who just learned all about North Korea from wikipedia while waiting for their hit in the greenroom.

If you’d like to know as much about North Korea as Malice does, you visit the country and read the 60+ books he did. Or, you could learn a small fraction of what he knows by reading his hilariously entertaining and informative book Dear Read: The Unauthorized Autobiography of Kim Jong Il.
