  • North Korea and South Korea existence securities and freedom in this 21st century world international order are secured under Southern Countries Union- SCU. At no time would have America want peace between North Korea and South Korea, so as to keep American occupation of South Korea. This is 21st century world international order. 20th century world international order is dead and gone forever. Anglo-America has fallen and gone forever with their fraudulent criminal UN of 20th century world international order. America military, police must vacate Southern Countries Union- SCU territorial sovereign states dead or alive. God Is With Us!!!
