As I'm lead to understand it there is just a cease fire so technically we are still in a state of war with North Korea?

It was never a "war" it was a police action. But yes the only thing in place is a cease fire.

Battleships, amphibious assaults, tanks, bombers, machine guns, artillery, air-to-air combat, etc, etc pretty much spells "war". A "police action" is when you get pulled over for speeding.

Technically WE (as in the U.S.) aren't and never were.

Technically South Korea still is.

Yes, and their ally Commie China, our banker.
Real life is great ain't it?

Considering Congress makes declarations of war and this hasn't happened since WWII we were never technically at war

there is an armistice.

No, Obama (has brought peace and understanding to the world).

Back in the seventies, I traveled to Panmunjom every few months with a
busload of other journalists to cover the "truce talks".

The place was surreal and the talks were all about bluff and bluster.

At a table inside a single story building were North Koreans and Chinese on one side
and the Americans and U.N. representative on the other.
Those of us in the media stood outside peering thru the window. There were North Korean guards on one side of us and
South Korean guards on the other.

The talks were were conducted in Korean, English, and Chinese; one after the other.
So, if the Chinese gave a forty minute tirade about something, it had to be translated into Korean, then into English.
Took hours for the give and take.....As I recall, the typical session would last four or five hours.....No breaks of any
kind for the participants.
