I don't think we should lose sight of the fact that technically the north & south have been at war for 60 years. Only an Armistice agreement is stopping them launching missiles on each other. The US/South Korean war-games are not going to help the situation, specifically because Kim Jong-Il is completely irrational about everything. It's just escalating the situation as is.. To have this sorted out is going to require either a conflict or a social and economic collapse in DPRK.
At this stage, i don't understand why people are bringing WW2 into this.. It may have been relevant, giving context as to the current situation, however it can no longer be considered a causative factor.

Well actually the first world war was, until the second world war, known as the great war.
