The purpose of this thread is to attempt one technique of conflict resolution, pretend Korea is in a state of peace and help describe what it is like

peace talks have stalled due to this nuclear issue so with a large international diplomatic community showing up and leading the way it is looking
like this roadblock can be finally put to rest. Basically, Korea has been fighting for so long that everyone who started it is dead and it is more
continuing out of cultural tradition. To help define the situation:

North Korea is communist, population of 24 Million and average annual wage of $1 800
There are indications that North Korea is willing to submit to South Korean rule. There is still some uncertainty as to if North and South should

up and pull down this wall like what was done between East and West Germany? Any ideas, comments, stories or experience?
