Naturally President Barack Obama gave the usually clap-trap speech of how the south of Korea has democracy and a “vibrant economy” while the north lives in poverty and tyranny. Obama even claims we “won” the war. What he doesn’t say is that the south is a puppet completely created by the US and that economy does not include all South Koreans. The democracy (as phony as in the US) has only been there about 15 years after decades of military dictatorship.
Here is what the North says about all of this:
