31. These things tend to happen

when you go around the world installing right wing nationalists as your 'safe guard' against those darn commies.

the south Korean government has been corrupt since its conception.

I do support our being in South Korea tho.. and I do support protecting the people of South Korea from their neighbor to the north...

this was part of the deal we agreed to after WW2 after all... and the Korean peninsula being taken from the Japanese who had oppressed them since the 1910's.

if the Chinese and north Koreans hadn't invaded shortly after the end of WW2, no telling what relations may have been by now...
not that I don't blame the Chinese for taking their civil war victory (with the help of north Koreans) and reciprocating it to their struggling party members to the south... would seem like a pretty good strategic thing to do I suppose...
tho im sure the Russians made it sound way easier than it ended up being.. the UN barely had any forces there after all...
