I just don’t get the situation in Korea.
OK there was a war there in the 1950s and the country ended up partitioned into the North Korean Democratic Republic and the Republic of South Korean, the democratic one being the one that’s clearly not. Why is is that non-democratic regimes always call themselves ‘Peoples Republic’ or ‘Democratic Republic’? Who are they kidding?
But I digress. The war is over. They built a bloody great big wide demilitarised zone between the two countries. End of, I’d have thought. Just get on with life.
But no. The South insist on building great big loudspeaker systems to broadcast propaganda into the North. So the North do the same. To be fair to the North, they stopped doing that but the South decided that they’d carry on. The North tells them to piss of or they’ll shell the speakers and when the South fail to piss off, they shell the speakers. So the South get pissed of. The North moves to a war footing. The Americans do what they always do – shoot off their mouth and sit on their arses. That’s what Yanks do. If it hadn’t been for Pearl Harbour, we’d still be waiting for them to join in.
The North then threaten to nuke the South and the Yanks with them. The South says this is unacceptable (!) but they haver no option but to carry on broadcasting their puerile shite into the North. Is it just me that thinks that both sides should stop behaving like three year olds in the playground and just pack it all in?
Then I look around and realise that everybody seems to have this KKS thing. The Israelis attack Gaza because the Gazans fire rockets at them. The whole thing escalates. Just stop shooting at Israel and the Israel will leave you alone. Just grow up.
And we’re no better. Look at the Falklands/Malvinas and Argentina. Give it up, Argies. You’re not going to get the Falklands. Both sides know that so just get on with your lives and live with it.
Look at Spain and Gibraltar. The Dagos want Gib. They ain’t getting it and they know it but that doesn’t stop them playing silly buggers. Spain and the UK are both in the EU FFS and even we can’t all get on together.
The world would be a better place if we just agreed to differ and stopped fucking about. But it’s never going to happen is it?
