  1. problem is china and usa. it will just intensify. korea was a victim of cold war and will be again in the new cold war. usa doesn't want leave and china will not want united korea under us influence.

  2. The only way to reunited korea is to disrupt the peace between the two or disrupt the peace to their neighbors around them that will shift power ties in the region or the regions around them and their neighbors. If someone attacks either side of korea and the other side swipes in and saves the other side at the same time take control while the other side is weaken. If America and China went to war. This will also affect the power struggle and they might all switch sides or fight the existing opposing sides. War is the only way. If America's economy were to collapse in the future or were to lose a war from another country. There would be a huge shift of off balance powers in the region and countries will attack the smaller weaker countries to take over. If China were to also lose or weaken than there will also be a shift in power ties and influences. Although northkorea will still have Russia to back it up

  3. A united Korea is what needed. Going from 13th economy to 7th world economy so not a bad outcome!!. They would be a barometer of the surrounding economies. North Korea has the wealth of minerals etc and a cheaper labour force. South Korea can afford to lose 5% to 10% of their income in the short term to support the North quality of life. The North has land and labour and is able to supply food if the South support their agricultural infrastructure and manufacturing plants and housing. The North Koreans would want to keep their family homes and increase way of life. The exporting of products around the world would be far cheaper to developing and developing economies and reachable for undeveloped economies. There are plenty of trade that is possible. There is no reason not to have a template plan in place.

  4. One answer could be a Korean isolation from the two governments themselves, a confederation, a cooperation between the companies from the south putting factories with godd conditions at the north, it's possible, but there need to be a korean isolation

  5. The reunification of Germany has happened because East Germany was about collapse and being replaced by the western style government. So, in this case, reunification requires one side to become collapsed or weaker. As a result, probably this side would be North Korea but also they have some external powers which support them like China and Russia. This situation exceeds the Korean people and only the superpowers can decide what will happen.

  6. In fact, North Korea has offered to give up their nuclear programme to several US presidents (including Bush, Obama, and Trump) under the condition that the US and the South stop their regular joint military exercises as North Korea feels threatened by them (no wonder given they had about 1 million casualties in the Korean War). However, every single US president has rejected this offer because the threat of war enables the US to justify their military budget and their presence in the region, showing that they value war more than diplomacy despite claiming the opposite.

  7. A much more probable scenario is a military fall of the us continued by pulling out of south korea and a marxist coup in south korea that would make it a chinese puppet state… even then politicians on both sides might prefer to keep whatever local power they have…

  8. The consequences of what happened to the people of East Germany would be the same consequences of every communist country in the world – if their walls came down.
    Communism and socialism would crumble overnight as people would flock outwards immediately.
    N.Korea would cease to exist as fast as E.Germany collapsed – yes.
    You are correct for bringing that up, as it is appropriate to do so.

    People often forget the lessons that past communist countries show. That when a people are oppressed for a long enough time, they want to throw off the bonds of communism.

    Too bad American college students didn't learn what they should have.
    They have been lied to.

  9. Actually, in an economic point of view and according to the korean economist Byung-Yeon KIM in his book "Unveiling the North Korean economy" (2017, Cambridge University Press), despite a huge cost in short/middle-term, "A strong consensus exists among researchers and policy-makers in South Korea.
    They agree that the economic benefits accrued from the unification will be larger than the costs associated with it mainly because the benefits will last far longer than the costs will."

  10. My Japanese friends have always felt great shame in the way Japan has treated Korea throughout history, in their words there is no border or military dispute them, but they fight because of pompous Japanese politicians looking to gain political capital at the expense of another. Meanwhile Communist China is outmaneuvering them both.
