Kim II Sung: Appendix. 3

Kim Il Sung was the president of North Korea during the Korean War, he was elected September 5, 1948 to "the country's Eternal President". It is said that he was educated in the Soviet Union, he participated in World War II and saw it as a war of liberation from Japan. He first became politically engaged in a Communist Party that later merged with the Peasant Party and became the Korean Labour Party. Kim II Sung became a cult of personality, that is, he was worshiped as a god by many people, probably because he stood in the forefront of the North Korea's liberation from Japanese occupation. For Koreans, he is a sort of father of the nation much like the Gustav Vasa of Sweden and is called "the great leader". His political views are gathered in the Juche-sheer topology, in which it said that it should be independent of the outside world and that it is the masses who should decide. The Westerners who have met him have described him as an intellectual and likeable man. Though there are other opinions about him too, it is said that North Korea's situation was similar to the Nazi camps (such as Auschwitz) during World War II.

North Korea, whose real name is the Democratic People's Republic of Korea is a state located in the Korean peninsula in Asia and is bordered by South Korea, China and Russia. The capital is Pyongyang. The Head of State Kim Il Sung died in 1994 but is still the country's president. His son Kim Jong Il is the supreme commander of North Korea now, and thereby the country's highest political leaders. Being in different batches is very profitable in North Korea. The active party members often get an apartment in the capital, which makes it very attractive. The city was split from the province of South Pyongan in 1946 and became an independent small province.

Korean War: Appendix. 4

"The war could have started World War III" from 25 June 1950 until 27 July 1953. The conflict continues today. The war began when North Korea walked toward the attack on the 38th parallel north (latitude that crosses the United States, the Mediterranean and Asia). North Korea took the help of China.

Around New Year so did the Chinese of Seoul.

During the war, it is estimated that it killed 300,000 South Koreans, 140,000 Americans and 10,000 of other UN forces. North Korea and China's losses are unknown, but it is assumed that they are greater than the remaining countries. In total it is believed that the dead about 5 million people in the war.

Why did the Korean War?

Like most developing countries that had DPRK companies and industries, which was good, but that they did not have was the labor that was needed and they had not the educated people that would be needed to get the country to get back on their feet. South Korea, was well on its way to becoming a developed country with the help of the US, which had well-trained staff and labor, but not so much industries or companies. There you can see a reason, the large economic disparities. Moscow had approved the North Korean attack.
