From the Paper:

"It should certainly be seen as scarcely surprising that the Korean Peninsula remains steeped in conflict. Indeed, it is a region that was outfitted according to its current model by a state of brutal war. The Korean War was, like so many conditions set in motion on the world stage in the latter part of the 20th century, a repercussion of the events leading up to and occurring during World War II. Occupied by the Japanese at this juncture, the peninsula exited the war in a diminished economic, infrastructural and educational state, leaving it subject to the interests of outside forces. The 38th Parallel became the logistical dividing line, north of which became a Soviet occupied territory and south of which became an American occupied territory. In the years to immediately follow the war, this dividing line would become a flashpoint in the emergent Cold War."
