History

20th Century

In the early 1950's, North Korea attempted to unify the Korean Peninsula by invading South Korea, leading to the Korean War. However, the war ended in a stalemate after the U.S and its allies intervened in the war to aid South Korea while China and the Soviet Union backed support for North Korea.

21st Century

Olympus Has Fallen

In 2013, during the White House Siege, North Korea mobilized its military in response to U.S officials preparing to withdraw their troops from the DMZ and the the Seventh Fleet from the Sea of Japan. There were armies seen parading in the streets of Pyongyang.
