Their situations weren't as long-standing. Germany was not a world threat until WW1 and then right after WW2, we carved them up, and took over the place, and put our military bases there to keep them in check. And Japan wasn't even an issue until WW2, and then, well, we stopped their antics pretty abruptly and they haven't misbehaved since. With North Korea, the resentment has been going on and on and on and on and on and on for more than half a century, and at least three generations. Many people have been born since and since died between the start of the Korean War and now. My grandfather is over 90 now, and he was over there when he was just a young spry boy, and I don't think he ever thought this day would come, especially after all these years. I mean, it's been about 70 years. That's a long time, so, it's pretty amazing when you think about it.

Well, millions of people died and we had to occupy their nations for years before we became friends. Lets not do that again.

Good point !
Also, not so long ago having England as a close ally was unthinkable !
Still angry at those dirty redcoats!

80 years IS kinda long ago .

The USA devastated Japan and then when they surrendered, spent fortunes rebuilding their government.

I'm not sure what you are getting at. Are you suggesting we should do the same to North Korea? How do you propose we will afford this? The US right now is spending about as much as it did on the military as it did during the height of World War 2. And you want to add another World War 2 level war on top of that? How will we afford it?

We can't even rebuild Afghanistan, and Iraq is only just barely starting to recover, and Libya is still in turmoil. Why not let the US finish rebuilding all the nations it has destroyed first?

The US doesn't take the World War 2 route anymore, of destroying nations then rebuilding their governments. Instead, we just destroy nations and somehow expect democracy will just materialize without putting any effort into reconstruction. (Or in Iraq's case, actively trying to prevent them from rebuilding through intense sanctions.)

Amazing what a few years of occupation can accomplish. Think Kim would go for that?

None. Japan was an ally in WWI and the Boxer Rebellion prior to that. In fact the committed the largest contingent of ground troops in the latter.
The Soviet Union was an ally in WWII, and about 10 minutes after it ended, we were sworn enemies.
Germany and Russia were enemies in WWI, then erstwhile allies at the beginning of WWII, then enemies for the remainder.

Alliances are forged of convenience, not friendship and most are shallow at best .

not so long ago ?
like 1945 ?

smh.

times change
