North Korea has a young dictator who apparently doesn’t know his country’s history. Kim Jong Un, North Korea’s communist dictator, is flirting with losing China as a friend and protector.

If he knew his country’s history, he then would recognize the fact that China, with some help from Russia, saved North Korea from total defeat during the Korean War (1950-53) by United Nations forces, chiefly the United States. Had China not entered the war after North Korea invaded South Korea, the United Nations surely would have taken over the North and that country would not exist as it does today. China supplied the ground forces while Russia provided guns, ammo and airplanes, for the North Korean military.
