North and South Korea will march under a single flag at the Winter Olympics



The BBC is reporting that "North and South Korea have agreed to march together under a single 'unified Korea' flag at next month's Winter Olympics in the South. They also agreed to field a joint women's ice hockey team in rare talks at the truce village of Panmunjom. These are the first high-level talks between the countries in more than two years. It marks a thaw in relations that began in the new year when North Korea offered to send a team to the games. The games will take place between 9 and 25 February in Pyeongchang in South Korea."

The New York Times posted a picture of North and South Korean athletes marching together during the opening ceremony of the 2006 Winter Olympics in Turin, Italy. J'imagine yo.

Like I said before, provoking war in a time of peace is not noble. If Canada and the US want to boycott North Korea they are free to do so. If China and Russia are willing to sell North Korea oil, they are free to do so. Canada and the United States do not have the right to ban other countries from doing business with North Korea nor do they have the right to board their vessels.

Canada needs to stop selling China nuclear reactors and needs to take back it's oil rights. We are the ones supporting North Korea's nuclear expansion through China. SNC-Lavalin is the most corrupt construction company on the planet. Word.

  1. And somehow, people will be able to ignore exactly why this has happened. Even though the South Korean President has already said why.

    1. The real reason is because he told Trump to back off:

      "The president of South Korea has a strong message for Trump: Only the Republic of Korea can make the decision for military action on the Korean Peninsula.”

      "South Korean President Moon Jae-in must keep up a delicate balancing act between two unpredictable leaders: the one with nukes in the North, and the one in Washington who leads his country’s closest ally."

      Hillary Clinton is a CIA drug dealer but Donald Trump is a raging lunatic.

  2. As long as the peace holds and Trump stays distracted, all will be well. Trump is becoming more and more irrelevant, so in another few months who knows what will keep him occupied.
