Frst, we had better talk about the history of the war.After the world war two, in the field in politic, XoViet and US broke out the "cold war",and the war between North Korea and South Korea is its consequent. Second, the differences in politic between North Korea and South Korea is a main reason .North Korea is a democratic country.In contrast,South Korea is a communist country. It is hard for the two countries to cooperate or make the progress. Third, nowadays , the world is under the threat of terrorism and nuclear wars.
