The notice of withdrawal in 2014 of Afghanistan or talks with the Taliban make vague the eventual results of this armed intervention. In the midst of this process remains slow, not to say paralyzed, the construction of an alternative world order. China and Russia, meanwhile, have achieved a modus vivendi with demilitarization of borders and a share of influence in Central Asia. India and Japan are close to the Chinese emergence. They are all rearrangements in search for better positions against the new global order. Source: Campbell Soup Company. We can even annotate inter-Korean crisis in this context.
Korea of the North, with serious problems including hunger, is ruled by a kind of religious sect, but if we get some peoples like the Kurds could generalize to say that it is the only nation sitting on two States, i.e. legally is the only nation that remains divided after the reunification of Germany and Yemen. That division remains a legacy of the cold war and an anomaly by resolve, although the origins lie clearly in the Japanese invasion of China, source that remains in the current crisis, given that the North Koreans heirs of those facts are still in power in a sort of hereditary monarchy. And because they see to the South as a U.S. appendage. There are no foreign troops in North Korea, but thousands of U.S. soldiers in South Korea.
While continue watching North as simply a development problem of nuclear weapons there will be no settlement. Of course that its regime is a dictatorship of the worst and its record on human rights includes all kinds of violations. However, most scholars of the subject believe that a process of detente the regime could evolve towards a process similar to the Chinese. We do not believe in the possibility of an inter-Korean war and much less a repetition of the previous conflict, but the Korean issue is a clear example of how it should change paradigms in an analysis of agonizing geopolitics.
