In few words: What you, and greenglassdoor are saying, is that flice's perspective is not understanding that the us has not accepted the full peace
treaties, because nk doesn't want justice for sk - it just wants to take them in and rule over them unjustly?
eta: Or is it just all a game of puppets, and the puppeteers are us and rus?

IMHO your right on both accounts.
NK doesn't want peace as we view the word, they simply want control over SK. Yes, they do want to bring north and south back together... under the
rule of the north. The view themselves as the only legitimate korean government, with the south simply being a puppet state. which is true, but not
the whole story. Both north and south are puppet states.
puppets calling other puppets out for being puppets, pot calling the kettle black and all that. While i'm no fan of the US government at least SK's
citizens are treated like actual humans, unlike NK's citizens. When you have to keep your own people inside your country with electric fences so they
don't escape you know something is messed up. When you are forced to believe your leader is bascially a god or else face death or worse, you know
something is screwed up.
it's funny that people blame the US for all this trouble when russia and china are just as responsible. the US, china, and russia have/had their own
interests at heart and care nothing of the korean people. they are/were simply using korea as a pawn, all sides are guilty, with the only victims and
only innocent being the citizens of korea.
a 100% independent, united, prosperous, happy korea is not something ANYBODY wants to see, because it doesn't serve their interests, it's good for
korea, bad for everyone else, and because everyone else is more powerful they are stopping korea from being united, prosperous, and independant.
i'm not taking any responsibility away from the USA, i'm simply looking at the bigger picture, the US, china, and russia are all just big bullies
playing games with smaller/weaker nations, and to single out the US, or single out china is dishonest at best, they are all acting badly and hurting
the korean peoples for their own purposes.
