        But the South Koreans were not asked whether they want to be in the American zone of influence or not. Korea was divided by 38 parallels between the USSR and the USA.

            Korea was a Japanese colony. After the defeat of fascist Japan, the USSR and the USA took it from the Japanese and divided it among themselves, putting their people in power - Kim Il Sung and Lee Son Man, respectively. This division was supposed to be temporary, but no, Korah is still two.

      The times were already over when the American submarines caused shock and awe among the Aboriginal people, and the North Korean comrades would not cause too much concern with the American saber-rattling. They scare, scare the Yankees with their military presence, and everything will end, as always, that is, nothing.

      Do not forget that the "great sun-faced marshal" Kim Jong-un periodically threatens to launch a nuclear missile at South Korea when food runs out. There is no need to demonize the South Caucasus and whitewash the DPRK. Although to whom I explain, here the majority are fans of the North Korean "leaders" fool

    Looking at this fact is not worth relaxing. The range of cruise missiles indicates something.

    “The North Carolina attack nuclear submarine develops speeds up to 46 km / h and is capable of carrying Tomahawk cruise missiles (BGM-109, maximum range of target destruction 2,4 thousand km)as well as torpedoes Mark-48 (MK-48, 533 km). The length of the boat is 115 m, displacement - 7,8 thousand tons, a crew of 130 people can be on board. The submarine was put into service with the US Armed Forces in May 2007. "

    This is our Far East and Primorsky Territory. They wanted to sneeze on the Juche idea, the main goal of our ship base. The fact that an atomic charge explodes in North Korea is not visible from under the water, and it is not hot under water. To the states there’s an extra mess in the world, like a balm for wounds. Something like this.

      2,4 thousand km is a nuclear warhead, with the usual not more than 1,6 thousand km.

    This is exactly who provoked whom .. Who included the DPRK in a "rogue country" 2 and before that violated the obligations to build two light water nuclear reactors to generate electricity .. Who constantly conducts exercises involving up to 200 thousand military exercises at the very border between the two Koreas ..? Who is threatening to overthrow the DPRK regime or the United States by force ..? Who released the scandalous film "Interview" where two American journalists allegedly kill Eun, and which caused a storm of indignation in the DPRK .. Do you have enough of the above or else to add ..?
    will be. And what, he does not give a reason? As there, I mean, in diplomatic slang is called "it's not me, he started first!" ?

    For reasons, read the quote above ..

Stalin agreed unfortunately. And since then, Korea has remained divided in two ..

      South Koreans, on the other hand, live like people. The United States did at least something good - it protected the South Caucasus from the "great sun-like" family of inadequacies. I'm not a fan of US politics, but they helped South Korea to survive.
      Juche fans, remember that Stalin was not enthusiastic about the fact that Kim Il Sung attacked South Korea! The Soviet Union didn’t need a Korean war, the Soviet MiG-15 pilots had the task of only protecting North Korean cities from American bombing.

    Better economically. And then only due to the fact that its allies China and the USSR / Russia turned away from the DPRK, and the States and Europe are helping the South Korea + imposed sanctions on the DPRK, in fact, this country lives in an economic blockade. But as for the prohibitions, you are mistaken .. I have repeatedly cited in other topics that South Korea also has enough prohibitions. And it is not necessary to expose it as a kind of "showcase of democracy" .. By and large, democracy in the classical sense does not even smell there ..
    It’s good for you to admire the poverty of the North Koreans living in prosperous Kazakhstan, having everything that is impossible in the DPRK

    I don’t admire, I’m just trying to convey to some that the DPRK is not at all such a terrible monster as it is drawn by Western and Russian media as well. It is enough to say that there is free medicine, free education, including a higher, highly developed social security system, and in this country, citizens, by the way, do not pay taxes at all, no .. This is even written in their Constitution.
    Kim Il Sung was the first to attack, which Soviet propaganda did not say. The US defended its ally.

    After that war, the North Korean army has never fought anywhere outside of its country, unlike the South Korean army, which was also "noted" in the Vietnam war, in the war in Afghanistan in 2001 and in Iraq in 2003 .. so who is the aggressor for us .. ? and at the same time, in all these wars, the South Korean army was marked by exceptional cruelty even towards the civilian population ..
    Lee Son Man would be the first to attack - the USSR would defend the DPRK just like that.

    Whether the son of man himself was already preparing for an attack. Kim Il Sung just got a little ahead of him .. in addition, the war actually did not even begin in 1950, but even earlier. since by that time quite large skirmishes were going on at the border, including artillery, etc. And far from always, the northerners were the initiators .. so there it’s so unambiguous to call any one party guilty, at least not correctly. There essentially was a civil war between one people. And external interference in a civil war is always fraught .. As an example of today's Syria ..
    What did I turn the story over? Enlighten me.

    Read the quote above ..
