I know the OP is pulling our legs. But this is where the fun in conspiracies for me. The random that throws logic out the window.

WOW, I guess I have never really been to Pammunjom, Korea or stood in North Korea, been to the killing tree in the DMZ or been in the cross border tunnels the north has dug.
Save your BS for those liberals who have never been 50 miles away from home and know everything...

part of the issue here is the syntax. The OP was trying to say, the state of NK was set up via the war, to be a future patsy of sorts and isn't really all that it seems. The isolation, the no access except via government sponsored reports, the comical NK press releases, are a perfect cover for a country that isn't what it seems, as no one of objective neutral measure can verify anything claimed about NK, not even those who live there. What the OP poster was trying to say is the entire country is a living atomic-bomb-city waiting to be blasted for a more elaborate end game. Argue that point, rather then the syntax of "fake" and then using your own interpretation of fake to mean illusion - which is not fake. Fake here was meant to convey the feeling of not a viable, UN included, official country. There is no way ever one who knows all about NK from MSM or even academia will be able to verify the OP notions - that would require a major insider.
North Korea doesn't exist, it never has. It's always been an illusion created by the US,

Where does Russia fit into this?
All these bots and naysayers showing up in the thread need to re-read the rules of Skunk Works Forum, and put on their big girl panties.

I mean come on. Every single year(multiple times each year!) there's a new threat by North Korea. And every single time the same mindless drones say this year they mean it.
We invaded a country because we thought they had WMDs, but haven't done anything about the country that has nukes and threatens to use them against us?
You don't see anything wrong with this picture?
You guys really don't see how what the OP said is a possibility?
Like I said, the brainwashing is damn effective.

Technically you are right...."North Korea" is actually the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) and by that standard "South Korea" does not exist either as it is the Republic of Korea (ROK). But my dad (who served in Korea during the war as a young LT; Chipyong-ni, May Massacre and Heartbreak Ridge) would laugh if I told him of your thesis.
