I have no doubt about the horrors and savagery of past (and/or present) wars. What I do doubt is how much every North Korean knows. They have access only to propaganda. Only one state-sponsored TV channel, no Internet and, if we are to believe what former residents tell us, extreme amounts of indoctrination/brainwashing. People killed for expressing opinions. Whole families killed for saying something bad about the Kims. Not a nice place.

But I can't think of any type of war that would help those people. I hope our leaders are interested in what's good for people, more than they care about what's good for the military-industrial complex, and the size of our President's dick.
