North and South Korean conflict - Sad and tragic
November 24, 2010 7:08am CST
Who started the present crisis? Was it really North Korea or was it South Korea? The newspapers say that North Korea started it all by firing missiles or shots into South Korean Territory and that south korea just retaliated. However it is also reported that north Korea indeed fired into South korean territotry in retaliation for those military exercises or firings being done by south Korea near its territory. Well whoever and however it all started again the tragic and sad news is that we now see a people of the same race, culture and traditions separated and hostile to one another just like in Germany when the Berlin Wall was still. I wonder if some south joreans have relatives in the North and vice versa. i really wonder if they all are happy with the situation. Is there no hope indeed that they will ever be reunified and reunited?

WEell i don't thnk it's fair to blame the USA for the conflict between the two Koreas. i believe the reason for the conflict is the fact that there are two Koreas instead of only a united Korea and we should remember that one side is supported by the USA while the other side has China so are we suppose to blame these two big powers? We hope both Koreas will find a peaceful solution with the help of these two super powers.

Definitely north Korea wont voluntarily share any information to the world except to its allies while South Korea would rather share minimal information and even give out the impression that the national security is unaffected. But considering that we have a lot of OFWs there we hope they will be open about the real situation in order to allow the government to take measures to protect the filipinos working or living there.

Wars are always bad for anyone, the small instinct can lead to a massive thing worldwide, now we are living in a global society so a problem anywhere in world can affect all over the world. for example all stock market crash after the instinct you mention. we all have to sort out some solution to live peacefully.

Yes indeed. The ripples and repercussions can affect people and countries all over the world and it is not a good thing when there are such disturbances which could escalate from a minor conflict to a world wide conflagration. We do hope people and copuntries with influence can and will do something to help the antagonists resolve the problem.
