In our travels, we recently came across a Korean War veteran. He talked at length about his war expreiences there and was concerned about the mounting tension there now as well. It’s a complex situation geo-politcally. While doing some research, I learned that the arbitrary drafting of the “North Limit Line” gave the best fishing grounds in the Yellow Sea to South Korea, and that has been an ongoing point of contention. It’s also been a flashpoint. Two years ago, North Korea fired a deadly salvo into Yeonpyeong Island over the disputed boundary. However… In 1950, the U.N. Security Council designated the U.S. as the executive agent over establishment of where the line would be placed. In an op/ed piece for the New York Times, Selig Harrison proposes the U.S. help Seol and Pyongyang come to an equitable ‘meeting of the minds’ about where to re-establish the boundary line in the Yellow Sea. This makes sense. Common sense. Note: The farmers in North Korea are currently experiencing an extreme drought and I believe we would do well to help them.
