Tension in the Koreas

What is the history of conflict?

After Japan's defeat in World War II, Korea became a divided nation, the capitalist South supported by the United States and its Western allies and the communist North an ally of the Soviet Union.

Cold War tensions erupted into war 1950, devastating the peninsula and taking the lives of as many as 2 million people. The fighting ended with a truce, not a treaty, and settled little.

Technically the two Koreas are still at war.

Besides the border skirmishes, other incidents also have occurred. In 1968, North Korea dispatched commandos in an unsuccessful attempt to assassinate South Korea's president. In 1983, a bombing linked to Pyongyang killed 17 high-level South Korean officials on a visit to Myanmar. In 1987, the North was accused of bombing a South Korean airliner.

All visitors to North Korea are expected to pay their respects to Kim Il Sung by bowing to the 65 foot bronze statue of him in Pyongyang, supposedly within 24 hours of entering the country. We were no exception, and there were many somber-looking North Koreans paying their respects that day as well. We were warned beforehand to make sure none of the photos we took of "The Great Leader" accidentally cut out the head, etc., as to do so is apparently illegal.

Critics maintain Kim Jong-il is the centre of an elaborate personality . Defectors have been quoted as saying that North Korean schools deify both father and son. His birthday is one of the most important public holidays in the country. Many North Koreans believe that he has the "magical" ability to "control the weather" based on his mood. The song No Motherland Without You, sung by the North Korean Army Choir, was created especially for Kim and is one of the most popular tunes in the country. Defectors claim that Kim has 17 different palaces and residences

A cult of personality arises when a country's leader uses mass media to create an idealized and heroic public image, often through unquestioning flattery and praise.[1] Cults of personality are often found in dictatorships
