This was the news I woke up to this morning. It seemed to be an omen making my decision for me concerning what I was going to concentrate on.

I wanted to at least start this today.. I am still not 100% yet and need to conserve my energy to some degree. This will be a major undertaking. I fully believe this will be the hardest of any of my posts to make follow any kind of logical order. The problems of today and N. Korea can be traced back to the end of WW2 and the start of the Cold War. The struggle for territory and peoples minds was fought on many fronts. I will be back to edit more information into this as well as clean up the introduction.. please check back as this will enlarge quite a bit with more information. I wanted to get some information to you to at least start to understand the history of the issue.

Per Wikipedia-http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Korean_war

The Korean War (Korean: 한국전쟁 or 조선전쟁, Hanja韓國戰爭 or 朝鮮戰爭; 25 June 1950 – 27 July 1953)[23][a] was a war between the Republic of Korea (South Korea), supported by the United Nations, and the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (North Korea), supported by the People’s Republic of China. It was primarily the result of the political division of Korea by an agreement of the victorious Allies at the conclusion of the Pacific War at the end of World War II. The Korean Peninsula was ruled by the Empire of Japan from 1910 until the end of World War II. Following the surrender of the Empire of Japan in September 1945, American administrators divided the peninsula along the 38th parallel, with U.S. military forces occupying the southern half and Soviet military forces occupying the northern half.[25]
