Nearly 70 years of sanctions, North Korea…

If someone put me into a box and tried to seal it? If someone locked the doors on my home from the outside?

Wouldn’t you be a bit angry at those people? I would…

While North and South Korea had issues and it looked as it North Korea was going to mope the ground up with the South. The issue started originally due to cold war crap between the USSR and USA. The USA had to get into the middle of all of it and came close themselves to getting their ass handed to them. My dad was in the Korean War and if the UN counter-offensive that was launched at Incheon, had failed. We with SK would have been in the ocean next…. Very possible my dad would never have made it home alive…

As it was we failed for the most part, because China swarmed over the border and handed us our asses again. But we bombed the hell out of everything in the North Korea and made sure that hardly any buildings were left standing… We dropped 635,000 tons of bombs and if it moved we tried to bomb it…. The war never ended and in NK’s eyes is still technically going on…

The armistice also established the Korean Demilitarized Zone (DMZ). The DMZ was decided to be a 2.5-mile (4.0 km)-wide fortified buffer zone between the two Korean nations. The Demilitarized Zone follows the Kansas Line where the two sides actually confronted each other at the time of the signed armistice. The DMZ is currently the most heavily defended national border in the world.

So instead of one Korea, we had as it was at the beginning of the whole mess, two Korea’s. Therefore we poured money into SK and boxed NK in tight as a sardine can…. We did not let the world properly intermingle with NK…

70 years of propaganda, financial destruction and literally just plain making up anything to demoralize the NK. On top of which America has a huge propaganda system at work in SK and this is all to keep fear of NK alive in SK’s eyes. Thus, they need our military bases there…

Once again, we Americans need to look in the mirror as we, talk trash about a country that has been abused beyond imagination verbally, morally, financially and socially. We are the catalyst to what NK became…

They fear the USA and that fear drives them to protect themselves at all costs… In their minds the war never ended. And it did not…

They are right to fear the USA! Ask Syria, Ukraine, Iran, Libya, Iraq, Venezuela, Serbia, Afghanistan, Yugoslavia, Somalia and there is many more… These are just off the top of my head…

How would you like it if someone tried to lock you in your room for 70 years?
