The Democratic People's Republic of Korea is the constant target of US Imperialism. After the Second World War the lower part of the Korean peninsula was occupied by the United States, who were the cause of the Korean War were the military Forces of the DPRK nearly managed to drive the US occupiers out and liberate the whole of the country from foreign domination. The intrusion of the newly formed UN who even then had a policy of two weights two measures, ordered the DPRK to retreat back to the position they had, prior to the war a cease fire was declared by the UN but an Armistice was never signed.
The US installed puppet military dictatorial regimes which lasted up to the 1980's, up to this day Korea remains split into two countries. The US which still controls the border between the two parts of Korea have nuclear armaments on the korean mainland yet they complain because the DPRK now have similar armaments. The DPRK is a country that is still at war and is often the victim of US backed provocations from the South. The living conditions in the DPRK are the result of the economic embargo and having to spend more then it could afford on defense. US imperialism should be blamed for the shortcomings in the DPRK. Every country has the right to choose its path even if this does not suite the US policy of World domination.
