"We are ready to fight for our independence! Please give generously!"

North Korea considers UN sanctions to be an act of war and is warning that it is ready to fight for its independence.

Independence is very nice, of course, but what exactly does it mean for a state that does not even have enough food to feed its citizens? I mean, isn't North Korea afraid that its neighbors will actually decide to grant it full independence and will stop feeding it?

"We are a fiercely independent nuclear state! Please send us 1 000 000 tons of rice or else we'll starve. Independently."
