We will never know what a united Korea could have been ...........  

The Cold War politics of those ...
The US could easily have forced that signature but didn't, and now the US profits from massive arms sales to S. Korea, Japan and Taiwan because of the 'bogey-man'

To say nothing of the advantage of having 30,000 troops and military bases close to Beijing in real terms and also within easy reach of Vladivostok where the Russian Navy (Pacific Fleet) is based.
It has never been about the people of Korea, but rather geopolitical advantage  ...........


May those warmongers rot in hell  .............



It does however take two to tango and the fact that the Kim family and their bent regime are for all purposes and old school Stalinist Regime does not help matters. They are hardly lily-white themselves as its estimated that 150,000 to 200,000 North Korean's (approx 0.85%) of the population are in labor camps, many of them until death along with their families and 3 generations of that to boot.

If ever there was a corrupt and perverted state then North Korea would honestly be the major contender for 1st place as even Eritrea or Malawi seen quiet sensible and liberal states in comparison.

Absolutely  ...................     

I am personally hoping that the new Kim will start a move towards normalizing the country ..........

But  ............

When will the US stop threatening N. Korea? Last year there were 49 pointless and provocative military exercises right next to disputed territory ..........

And the US they call the N. Koreans mad  ............

Absolute power corrupts absolutely ... rather appropriate when discussing two States with equally horrific records of abuse.

If the North "normalises" itself to the extent that its armies can be disbanded, the industry be t ...

I think if the occupying force in the south allow the 'Peace Treaty' to be signed by S. Korea and leave then all manner of things might change including the wall across Korea that keeps these people apart  ..........

I very much doubt that will happen as the N. Korean 'bogey-man' is far too lucrative to the US  .........

And the almost weekly exercises in disputed waters keep this going  ..........

Arms sales to S. Korea, Japan and Taiwan are above 30 billion dollars a year AFAIK  ........

Hardly an incentive to leave  ..............

And I doubt China gets anything like any benefits by having the US army in S. Korea, Taiwan and Japan  ...........

Just the threat of further containment  ...........
