It is better that they stay friends. Can enemies talk to each other? If Bush hadn't rock the boat by imposing sanctions over North Korea, the 6 nation talks would have taken place and maybe some positive results could have happened by now. Threats, sanctions, strong-arming, only moves the parties further apart. Look at North Korea now. Have they been hurt by the US sanctions? Are they any afraid of what USA can do or might do?? They'd even tested the missiles against any protest. They become more defiant. Bush has to learn one thing --- his cowboy attitude doesn't work in international political arena. Look at South America, they are swinging towards the left as ever. This shows that only friends can sit together and talk over things.

Remember the Great Wall of China begins from Korea.
It makes no sense to solve the North Korean issue before the reunification of Taiwan with the Central government on the mainland. What is holding up the reunification of Taiwan is because there are still some people on the Island that feels the nostalgic rule of Japanese colonialism. Wait until these people die and reunification will happen and so will the North Korean issue vanish.

Well the Taiwanese do want reunification eventually, but under their iwn terms. And you can't blame them. And I don't think the North Korean issue is so easily dismissd either.

Yes, the Taiwanese government was formed from the Chinese government which fled after the civil war. They would love reunification, as well as regaining control of the country.

The KMT's who FLED, a precise word, some 50 years ago are mostly dead and buried. The Hakka people and the Min Nan people, or to say the natives, of course would love reunification. Controling the country they are already. They are already in Beijing. Reunification is just a matter of signing some papers and start with the festivity.

And, and the North Korean issue will vanish.

North Korean issue wouldn't just disappear-by being the worlds last true Communist regime and generating so much hostility and unrest in the region, the North Korean issue won't settle till around 15-20 year after reunification-and that is going to be a dificult process.

I agree with u, fellow. But the counterpart of Korea will be more hard. Because, East-Aisa is quite chaos. Russia, Korea, America, Japan and Chian, They all have their own profit in Korean peninsular, and Both North and South Korea are not powerful adequatedly to get rid of external force, so..... A old story.

The reason North Korea is the way it is is because the Kim family wants to hold onto their power and keep the average North Korean poor and uninformed so they don't learn the truth about things.
Eventually the people will learn the truth and the government will be overthrown. It's just a matter of time. Shame on china for supporting that.

China supports North Korea to keep a buffer between them and America. But eventually when the north falls, china will have blood on their hands and everyone will know about their dirty tricks..

Chalmers Johnson

Blowback, p133

Even though it remains a small, failed Communist regime whose people are starving and have no petroleum, North Korea is a useful whipping boy for any number of interests in Washington. If the military needs a post-Cold War opponent to justify its existence, North Korea is less risky than China. Politicians seek partisan advantage by claiming that others are "soft" on defending the country from "rogue regimes." And the arms lobby had a direct interest in selling its products to each and every nation in East Asia, regardless of its political orientation.

John Stockwell, former CIA official (from his books, speeches...)

Coming to grips with ... U.S./CIA activities in broad numbers and figuring out how many people have been killed in the jungles of Laos or the hills of Nicaragua is very difficult. But, adding them up as best we can, we come up with a figure of six million people killed-and this is a minimum figure. Included are: one million killed in the Korean War, two million killed in the Vietnam War, 800,000 killed in Indonesia, one million in Cambodia, 20,000 killed in Angola ... and 22,000 killed in Nicaragua. These people would not have died if U.S. tax dollars had not been spent by the CIA to inflame tensions, finance covert political and military activities and destabilize societies.

True.

As usual, China's inept CCP dictatorship, trapped by its own crimes and incapable of reform is only storing up trouble for the future in order to "cling to power" a bit longer.

The similarities between North Korea's government and the CCP are actually astounding. The CCP just makes out they are better

This is all because the Chinese! they are no good people, they destroy peoples future! just look like North Korea because of them, they did that because they know if the Koreans were under America they'd have advanced much more faster than the medieval Chinese. MacArthur should have nuked Peking when they still could and this never would have happened!
Korean people are highly creative, hardworking and reilient. With that kind of history they've founded great brands such as Samsung, KIA, Hyundai (founded by a North Korean). Just imagine of those North Koreans had they been ruled under SK rule, many more inventions would have been made by them. Now lost by supression from both China and the China puppet, the Kims.
