    After reading this article, I have a few questions for the "smarter" FK members, who know what they are talking about.


    1)Why do North Korea and South Korea hate each other? We were talking about this in school a few days ago, but I was talking to a girl the whole time ( ) guess I should have payed attention

    2)It seems to me that only people in the UN are "allowed" to have nukes, is this true, and why?


    3)Why dont we just send some seals, spies, or something in there to find out whats going on?

    Korea was occupied by Japan until the end of World War II.

    After World War II, Korea was divided. North Korea became communist, meaning the government controlled land, wealth and industry. In 1950 North Korea invaded South Korea, which was allied with several democratic countries. Fearing the spread of communism, the U.S. helped South Korea fight the North.

    Other countries were also involved. British, Australian, and Philippine soldiers fought alongside the South Korean army.

    After three years of brutal war, the two sides worked out an armistice-- a temporary cease-fire agreement-- on July 27, 1953. The front line was accepted as the boundary between North and South Korea.

    The armistice called for an international conference to find a political solution to the problem of Korea's division. This conference met in Geneva, Switzerland in April 1954 but, after seven weeks of futile debate, ended without agreement or progress.

    A peace treaty has never been agreed upon.

    2)It seems to me that only people in the UN are "allowed" to have nukes, is this true, and why?
    I think anyone can technically have nuclear weapons but it's not a cheap or easy thing to do. It's not limited to members of NATO/UN. They do make efforts to regulate use/stockpiling but countries such as North Korea are perfectly able to tell them to sod off.


    3)Why dont we just send some seals, spies, or something in there to find out whats going on?
    I don't think it's quite as easy as that, especially in a country like North Korea. It's effectively closed off to the outside world so a US Navy Seal (I assume you don't mean a sea dwelling seal) would stick out like a sore thumb.

    There are defectors from the country who escape to China and South Korea who provide information but the country is truly sealed to all intents and purposes making any sort of ground level spying nearly impossible.

    1) I believe there are complex cultural reasons for this divide but a large factor is simply that the North is Communist and the South is Democratic.

    2) Not true. The IAEA mandates that countries that do not currently possess nuclear weapons are not "allowed" to develop them. North Korea appears to be acting in violation of this mandate.

    3) It's not really necessary when they are declaring what they are doing. But I am sure we have eyes on it as well.

    Ummmm, someone else wanna help out here?

    Doesn't the UN not include every country including Iraq and North Korea?

    3)Why dont we just send some seals, spies, or something in there to find out whats going on?
    I really doubt there isn't spies already in there for a whole lot of different countries including america. I think North Korea will be a slighty tougher opponent than Iraq.

    The UN is the UnitedNations... you have to meet certain criteria to be a member.. not causing pain and suffering to your own people... etc...

    Didn't America "tool up" North Korea with all their old equiptment? Or was that the Russians?

    we're neck deep in Blair's war mongering whether we like it or not.

    North Korea should really be top of "the list" I would have thought but the simple fact that they have a highly trained and well equiped army negates the possibility of a US/UK led attack on them.

    As an aside, since there are plenty of these threads, did anyone see that program last week on BBC4 where a bloke took a holiday in the axis of evil countries? It was absolutely brilliant, he went to North Korea, Iran, Iraq, Libya, Syria and Cuba and met locals etc

    I heart Iraq

    Not a massively detailled account but the programme was actually 3 hours long, I suspect they will end up showing it again on BBC4 in which case I'd recommend watching it.

    Sounds like an interesting program!

    All four programmes in the Holiday in the Axis of Evil series will be screened in the UK on BBC Four on 31 January from 2250 GMT; and will be repeated on BBC Two on 10, 11, 17, 18 February at 2320 GMT.
    And this poor lad... well it made me laugh

    Can you please show these on BBC America? I can't take much more Changing Rooms, Home Invaders and Ground Force. We already have plenty of home decorating channels on cable & satellite. Please give us British documentaries.

    I agree for once. The North Korea situation is more directly threatening to the world than the Iraq one.
