So as an Australian, what the hell is going on over there? Why after 60 or so years is this place still fighting? Is this wall destined to come down one day like in Germany or is this just the start of a greater fractures in global relations?
what is it going to take for these sides to finally shake hands and find some common ground?
Help me ATS to deny my ignorance. I know this subject can raise a lot of passion, but please try and keep the discussion civil.

It also doesn't help to sanction/punish North Korea and help/reward South Korea.
I mean since those two country's are like brothers, 1 gets everything and have good lifes, the others the opposite (isolated & and they don't got much too loose).
I do think N-Korea is mostly if not always bluffing, they want attention, and this is the only way to get some..
Maybe, they go in a suicide mode, if possible though.
Since the west is basicly afraid and we isolate them, so far we should know? that this doesn't work.
And sure, N-Korea leaders are a bit old fashioned, still obsessed with military might. I don't see a real easy sollution right now..
Cite history correctly: KOREA WAS a repressive FASCIST DICTATORSHIP UNTIL 1960 UNDER Syngman Ree, then followed by repressive military junta which executed 40,000 people who protested for more democracy, governments in SOUTH korea are toppled by the US govt if they displease Washington. ROK IS A US VASSAL STATE. usa constantly interferes in the politcal development of other nations

North and South Korea do not want to unite. 50 or 60 years ago it would have been thought of positively by the south at least.
North Korea is a dictatorship the people are dirt poor except for a select few. They have been brainwashed to think their leaders are saving them from the horrible south and cannibalistic Americans.
The South doesn't want the ignorant uneducated poor masses flooding into the south destroying their economy. The North are power-hungry assholes that are also afraid of being killed with a rocket launcher by dear leader like he killed his family.
Probably another reason he hates being called Rocket Man.
