    This doco did give the full history of the Korean War. Kim Ill Sung was popular across all of Korea due to his efforts in fighting the Japanese. With the help of the USSR a state was established in the North, while the South was controlled by the US. The UN had decided for a nationwide election (North and South). The US knew that Kim Ill Sung would likely win, so they established a military dictatorship made up of Japanese collaborators. The military government began massacring communists in the South which forced the North to invade. South Korea was a military dictatorship until the 1980's.

    The reason China blatantly introduced the U-shaped line to dispute the sovereignty of Asian countries is because they think they conceal the BC history of the countries, China they say they are the ones who found the islands of BC. Because they know the Asian countries lost this part of history, it was Lac Long Quan and the Hung Kings who explored Asia and the ancestors of Asia, there were no Hoa Ha people, Asia had only Yellow skinned people with monolids and double eyelids, Qin Shihuang caused wars that lost some of their ancient history to their ancestors, China they knew so deliberately misrepresent the history of misappropriation. sovereignty over the sea and islands of the countries. Asian countries learn about the history of the Lac Long Kings Hung King Hung history of Ancient Greece will find their ancestors, receive the ancestors of everyone, they will protect you. This is the right to apply to the countries that are disputing China's South China Sea sovereignty. Learn about 5000 years history between Ancient Greece and Lac Long Quan Asia.

    If they had deigned to call themselves 'Oppressive, Brutal and Secretive Nation' I'd have a little more respect. Calling your country 'democratic' or 'peoples' is like Coca Cola marketing themselves as ' Premier Health Drink of Thin and Happy People' 😐 Also, f@cking Stalin, not enough to doom your own country's legacy for generations, him and Mao went and wrote the handbook on terror, oppression and sheer trauma for your subjects. Here's a novel idea (for ALL nations) : thorough psych tests before taking office.

    They knock that President Trump negotiated differently than what they did, yet their approach was totally ineffective through multiple administrations. The proof was in the fact that all ballistic missile tests stopped after Trump met with North Korea. The current administration has gone back to the old approach which will fail.

We're all pawns in a pointless chess match that shouldn't be played in the first place.

    1. America attacks North Korea's military parade. 2. Rome nukes New York City and it's blamed on Russia and China. America declares war on Russia and China. 3. Russia and China nukes all of America's airbases(there's about one in every city) and sinks half their naval fleet. 4. Iran pushes west. 5. Rome nukes London and Paris. 6. Iran pushes north and south. 7. Rome nukes Moscow and Beijing. 8. Iran pushes at Rome. 9. Rome nukes Iran. 10. Israel pushes at Rome and prevails. 11. Pope Francis gets sympathy from the nations of the north and causes them to surround and destroy Jerusalem. 12. God destroys all the statues in Rome. 13. The nations of the north surround and destroy Rome while at the same time God destroy's Rome with fire and brimstone from heaven; and Pope Francis falls with it. 14. The beast and false prophet rise to power and issue the mark of the beast. 15. God destroys all grass(herbs and vegetables) and fruit bearing trees, cows and chickens quickly become extinct. So there's no food except for fish and swine. 16. A third of the sea turns to blood. 17. A third of the fountains of fresh water go bitter. 18. A third of the day is shortened. (24 hours to 16 hours) 19. All the oceans turns to blood. 20. All the rivers and lakes turn to blood. 21. The sun gets extremely hot(7 times normal). 22. The sun goes out, and the moon turns to blood. 23. Saints are executed. 24. The great earthquake. 25. Remnant's executed. 26. The rest of the people left(which are those who has taken the mark of the beast) gather for Armageddon. 27. Christ resurrects his people and returns to Armageddon to destroy whoever's left. 28. Christ reigns on earth for a thousand years with his people(saints and remnant). 29. After the thousand years are up, the dead is brought back to life and judged. 30. The new city Holy Jerusalem(which has a transparent clear gold foundation) comes down from heaven and sits right on top of the lake of fire(which is actually a furnace). The saints move to Jerusalem and the remnant become kings and inherit the earth. /------------------

    Trump normalized and legitimized Kim. Kim got everything from that summit and we got nothing. Trump supporters will still parrot talking points that Trump achieved North Korea stopping missile testing during his Administration. Actually, there were several missile tests by North Korea during Trump's administration and they also restarted construction on some of their missile sites that had halted previously, confirmed by satellite imagery of the construction at known sites.
