North Korea and South Korea have been at odds for many, many, many, many years. Okay, to say “at odds” would be an understatement of mass proportion. The two ends of the same spectrum can’t stand one another and it dates back to the separation of the country into separate governments. Both provinces sought independence 60 years ago when North Korea thought it would punk South Korea and try to dominate it, but as you can see the U.S. stepped in as an ally and we fought the Korean war and we’ve been friends with South Korea ever since. So when one of S. Korea’s “military installation” were taken out by N. Korea on Tuesday, it was time to go to blows.
According to the New York Times, the nation’s new security advisor, Thomas E. Donilon, woke the President up at 3:55am to alert him to the attack. President Obama has agreed with S. Korea’s President, Lee Myung-bak, to hold joint military exercises, which only means we’re sending aircraft carriers and other ships into N. Korean waters to simmer them down because N. Korea seems to be out of control again. They are threatening military force by doing this, but the question remains, “Where are we getting the money from to go into yet another war?” A disastrous result of these “exercises” could land us in a fight with a formidable opponent and ally of N. Korea… China. And we really don’t wanna go there with as much money as we owe them.
The war we could be getting ourselves involved in will definitely hit our pockets even harder. How can we survive TWO WARS at the same time? Get a bird’s eye view here into a powerful alliance that may lead us down a very dark corridor in our nation’s history.
