Kim Jong-Un’s ‘cartoonish image’ should not fool the international community into thinking he is not clever and rational, North Korea experts warn.

They claim Kim’s obsession with building nuclear missiles that can reach the U.S. is not an indication that he is looking to start a war – but to prevent one.

The North Korean dictator, whose most recent nuclear missile test is claimed to have proven that his warheads can soon reach U.S. shores, was branded a ‘chubby-faced maniac playing with dangerous toys’ by Filipino President Rodrigo Duterte yesterday.

However, experts say this could not be further from the truth, explaining that the North Korean nuclear missile program is Kim’s ‘insurance policy’ against being ousted from power like Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein.

The late Iraqi dictator was deposed by U.S.-led international coalition forces following an invasion dubbed ‘Operation Iraqi Freedom’ in 2003 that preceded the Iraq War.

Kim Jong-Un is allegedly hoping that by developing nuclear weapons that can threaten the U.S., he can prevent himself suffering the same fate.

North Korea last week conducted its second intercontinental ballistic missile test, which led Kim to boast he could strike any target in the United States.

A nuclear weapons program is ‘the most powerful bargaining chip that North Korea has,’ Joo Seong-ha, a North Korean defector told USA Today.

Jenny Town, assistant director of the U.S.-Korea Institute at Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies, also disputed the view that the nuclear program is simply caused by Kim’s obsession with weapons and power.

‘The idea that Kim Jong Un’s decisions, particularly about his nuclear weapons program, are irrational is a myth,’ Ms Town told the news website.

‘The caricature, cartoonish image of him is easy for people to believe.’

This came after speech by Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte on Wendesday in which he warned that Kim could destroy Asia by triggering a nuclear war, branding him a ‘son-of-a-w**** maniac’.

Duterte said the tyrant is ‘playing with dangerous toys’ and that people should ‘not be fooled by that chubby face that looks nice.’

The Philippines leader teed off against ‘crazy man’ Kim ahead of a regional security meeting in his capital Manila this weekend, where the hermit state’s ballistic missile tests will be a hot agenda item.
