Could History Explain North Korea?

When North Korea is mentioned most Americans just roll their eyes and say under their breath “crazy bastard”…..but the whole situation with the country could be explained by history…

The U.S. and North Korea are on the brink of hostilities that if begun would almost certainly lead to a nuclear exchange. This is the expressed judgment of most competent observers. They differ over the causes of this confrontation and over the size, range and impact of the weapons that would be fired, but no one can doubt that even a “limited” nuclear exchange would have horrifying effects throughout much of the world including North America.

So how did we get to this point, what are we now doing and what could be done to avoid what would almost certainly be the disastrous consequences of even a “limited” nuclear war?

    Peaceful Dialogue. Peace talks often start without preconditions and preconceived notions.
    Not seeing that in regard to the USA.

  2. We can never have any understanding of the DPRK using only what information is supplied by our own media, and government propaganda. There was a similar fear and suspicion about the Soviet Union, when I first visited there in the mid 1970s. Then I went to East Germany, and discovered a place very different from what I had been led to believe.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. I know what you mean I was in Russia in the early 80’s as well as several eastern European countries and they were nothing like the picture the news painted……chuq
