But North Korea knows it would be incinerated if it initiated any such first strike even using conventional weapons. Therefore it's highly improbable committing national suicide is on North Korea's political agenda. No the North will only retaliate if it is attacked first.

Let's put it this way. If there's a bully in the neighborhood the thing to do is take appropriate measures to defend yourself and that's what North Korea has been doing.

Self preservation has a way of doing that.
