This decision to continue nuclear proliferation in order to maintain power This decision to continue nuclear proliferation in order to maintain power is unstable balance for the North Korean dictator. is unstable balance for the North Korean dictator. In an analysis by a think-tank of instability in North Korea suggests that In an analysis by a think-tank of instability in North Korea suggests that in the absence of a singular leader factions among political elites would likely form, and lead to a deadlocked, non-functioning government, and lead to a deadlocked, non-functioning government, and most importantly, food rations would stop, and that creates a massive problem for a population that is already closed to starvation. Problematically, a desperate, starving and divided population is incredibly dangerous for what is technically the largest military force in the world. Former soldiers would have nothing to rely on, leading to high rate of criminal activities to replace government assistance. leading to high rate of criminal activities to replace government assistance. as we have seen in other countries whose regime has fallen, as we have seen in other countries whose regime has fallen, this pattern of low resources and high crime by former military members this pattern of low resources and high crime by former military members has led to violent insurgencies. ISIS was largely founded by former Iraqi soldiers have the deposition of Saddam Hussein Additionally, North Koreans are brainwashed from a early age to view the United States and South Korea as aggressors. to view the United States and South Korea as aggressors. In the light of facts that these two countries along with China would likely to be the first to respond an invade The local populations may find back assuming the invaders are there to hurt and not to help Another major issue would be dealing with the humanitarian disaster as 25 million North Koreans suddenly lose what little foods stored they have. Food Consumption Country-Wide is estimated around 15 000 tons per day. By comparison, in 2017, the US offers the country about 5% of that to help sure the available resources. So 15,000 tons a day is an astronomical amount of food, and would be incredibly difficult to deliver while the country undergoes an insurgency or even a civil war. It’s been predicted that if the North Korean government falls It’s been predicted that if the North Korean government falls millions would rush into China and South Korea, neither which have the infrastructure necessary to handle a massive influx of refugees. This could create a situation when North Korea is partitioned by these two countries when North Korea is partitioned by these two countries like the Germany in 1940s The former nation would be split along ideological and political lines The former nation would be split along ideological and political lines since South Korea and China are not necessarily allies. since South Korea and China are not necessarily allies. Should North Korea fall it would create a massive humanitarian crisis, a refugee crisis, a civil war it would create a massive humanitarian crisis, a refugee crisis, a civil war an insurgency that might have nuclear weapons and an ideological divide in the Korea peninsula between China and an ideological divide in the Korea peninsula between China and US-back South Korea Hundreds of thousands if not millions of deaths could occur Hundreds of thousands if not millions of deaths could occur from just one of these crises and that scenario is the biggest reason that nobody has done more than sanctions to North Korean leader and that scenario is the biggest reason that nobody has done more than sanctions to North Korean leader It is also by Kim-jong-un is unlikely to end his reign of power It is also by Kim-jong-un is unlikely to end his reign of power by using nuclear weapons as it’s been the case for nearly 70 years The uneasy balance has kept the region from collapsing and chaos The uneasy balance has kept the region from collapsing and chaos But how long that continues is totally unknown But even if the government does not collapse But even if the government does not collapse day-to-day life for the North Korean population reflects one of the worst standard of living in the world.

  2. north korea will fall in 50 or so years the farms that were everywhere there are destroyed or mostly destroyed by series of famines and natural weather and arent facing any progress in being restored and the rations they have are going to government officials and their families and friends with no food the citizens will starve population decreases and human labor decreases to make weapons and cloths which will catch the attention of the brain washed citizens and the entire world the UN will force an order for the secret state to get humanitarian assistance N. korea will be rebelious and decline and this wont be taken lightly more and more people die and the UN is frustrated by this they send troops in to hand out food and aid and then North korea will attack all the officials there creating a war with the world and North korea and then you can guess what happens

  3. This is a misleading video. Except the few thousands of hard core members of the Labor(Communist) Party members, there is no "ideological" divide in North Korea. Most people just hope to enjoy a similar life style of South Korea. It is the Chinese wish to devour some chunk of the North Korean land.

  4. 1- I would celebrate
    2-South Korea is likely to conquer it but, the huge gap can take South Korea in to a debt [I meant a bit into the poverty line] (if you think about the infrastructures and etc)
    3-People have to cope up with things they’ve missed
    4-A country might go for an invasion before the South Korea would and cause war or WWIII?

Iraq, Yemen, and lot of other African nations and so many. more being added to the list….. etc..) As a child, I am reminded of a nursery rhyme "Ringa Ringa Roses , A pocket full of Poises, , Ashes ! Ashes we all fall down" …… it is not just the 10 countries you mention… I stopped (paused the video) …. at North Korea or the official name is "Democratic Peoples' Republic of North Korea ..(DPRK)…..

    Democratic…???? Really?….. Pakistan Democratic??? Really? … I certainly like my childhood, nursery poem… Ringa Ringa Roses..listen to it… carefully, before anyone falls.. (Watch out for Pakistan as well) … Seriously! Just standby and watch… See also the Triangle of Iran, Turkey, Russia.. (recent news)… and facts..China is behind all of them….Watch. Sir!!

  19. the usa is as brutal as north korea. should we forget the 2 million koreans that died because of US bombing? democracy wasn’t an excuse at the time since north and south korea were both under dictators, and fun fact: north korea was at that time more developed than the south. i don’t like north korea, i’m just trying to prove that the US doesn’t really care about democracy as it’s allied to brutal dictatorships such as ethiopia where people are starving too, plus the fact that the war in iraq and afghanistan didin’t restore democracy, they only killed and starved people

  23. The only ones who don't want reunification are us Americans.

    -North Korea only wants reunification if its the North who is annexing the south. (Which is never going to happen)

    -South Korea doesn't want reunification because since a unified Korea would just be an enlarged version of South Korea, It would be absolutely and unbelievably expensive to not only modernize and connect the North's infrastructure to the South,but also to educate the 24 million brainwashed people.

    -China doesn't want reunification,because they don't want US troops right on their border and like having a socialist buffer ally keeping them away.

    -Russia doesn't want reunification,because it will spread American influence in the region.

    -Japan doesn't want reunification because they fear the economic might of a unified Korea.
