Actually, just read an article the other day saying that it was a dangerous myth that they were crazy.

You have to look waaay back from before WWI, WWII, and the times between and after to understand how the Koreans were screwed over by everyone. The transfer of Korea from Japanese colonial rule and its split at the 38th parallel to USSR (N) and the US (S) all but guaranteed that Korea's many attempts at democratization would go nowhere. Keep in mind that under Japanese control, heavy industry was concentrate in the north and agriculture in the south. This helps explain one reason why there's not enough food to properly feed the people in the north today.

The US couldn't allow the Koreans a true democracy because they were afraid the people might decide to go with communism, so it seemed to be in everyone's interest to divide the country among the victors.

Anyway, not to hold the leaders of North Korea blameless, isn't it interesting to note that we've had our hands in the internal affairs of most of the countries that are out to get us??

Now that's the thing about being Canadians. We are not big enough to ever fancy ourselves an empire that needs to go about messing up countries in the name of, well, whatever.

We can just hang out, drink beer and make Timmies jokes while you guys piss off the rest of the world.

P.S. Don't tell our current leader. For some odd reason, he fancies us a warrior nation.

I want to move south of the Mexican Nixon line. At least that's what they called it back in the early 1970's. Texas was south of the line.

My, people were culturally insensitive in the early 1970s.

I think NK is smart enough to know that if they act crazy they will get concessions (free stuff) from SK and the US. Real crazy would be if they actually did something.

Maybe they are pulling a "Mouse that roared" thing. You know. Go to war with the U.S. Lose. Get gazillions of dollars. Get your economy rebuilt so you can build better products than the U.S. Everybody gets rich. wink

First paragraph is false, bud. And he ain't my leader!
