Excuse me but since the Korean War, what "aggression" has NK undertaken?

I confess, I don't know much about NK but I don't remember them invading another country since then.

6. So exactly like us?

And the South Koreans? Except they’ve actually killed far fewer civilians?

4. Constant low level and high profile

incidents between the north & South. I was stationed there in the late 80s and we actually drew weapons and ammo due to infiltration of nk agents and I was 30 miles south of Seoul.

A couple of years ago, it's alleged a nk submarine torpedoed a South Korean naval vessel. The incidents go on and on.

8. Shooting missiles over S. Korea and Japan qualifies.

Not to mention human rights abuses on an industrial scale.

14. Yes, let us just forget about the Korean War.

According to the data from the U.S. Department of Defense, the United States suffered 33,686 battle deaths, along with 2,830 non-battle deaths, during the Korean War.[271] U.S. battle deaths were 8,516 up to their first engagement with the Chinese on 1 November 1950.[272] South Korea reported some 373,599 civilian and 137,899 military deaths.[16] Western sources estimate the PVA suffered about 400,000 killed and 486,000 wounded, while the KPA suffered 215,000 killed and 303,000 wounded.[32]

Data from official Chinese sources, on the other hand, reported that the Chinese PVA had suffered 114,000 battle deaths, 34,000 non-battle deaths, 340,000 wounded, 7,600 missing and during the war. 7,110 Chinese POWs were repatriated to China.[273] Chinese sources also reported that North Korea had suffered 290,000 casualties, 90,000 captured and a large number of civilian deaths.[273]

CNN reported, citing Enciclopedia Britannica that North Korean civilian casualties were 600,000, while South Korean civilian casualties reached one million.[274]

The Chinese and North Koreans estimated that about 390,000 soldiers from the United States, 660,000 soldiers from South Korea and 29,000 other UN soldiers were "eliminated" from the battlefield.[273]

Recent scholarship puts the full battle death toll on all sides at just over 1.2 million.[275]

The Blue House raid (also known in South Korea as the January 21 Incident) was an unsuccessful attempt by North Korean commandos to assassinate the South Korean president, Park Chung-hee in his residence at the Blue House, on January 21, 1968.

...

During the course of this assassination attempt, South Korean casualties totaled 26 killed and 66 wounded, including about 24 civilians. Four Americans also were killed in attempts to block the escaping infiltrators from crossing the DMZ.[5] Of the 31 members of Unit 124, 29 were killed; one, Kim Shin-Jo, was captured,[6] and the other one, Park Jae-kyung escaped to North Korea.[7] The bodies of the members of Unit 124 killed in the raid were subsequently buried in the Cemetery for North Korean and Chinese Soldiers.[8]
