No one is really sure about all the area to the direct north of the DMZ.
>From the vicinity of "T-Bone" and "Pork Chop Hill", I have seen rice
paddies near the MDL, well within the North side of the DMZ. There was a
rather large white Christian Cross on a low hill on the North Korean side
(also within the DMZ).
Near Panmunjon the North Koreans have a "Propaganda village", a pretty
good size town from the distance, that is sort of occupied. There are a
large number of farmers in the vicinity of Panmunjon (and you can see
them in the fields doing all the things you would expect a farmer to do).
BTW, farmers aren't out everyday playing on the tractor, mechanical ox,
We do know that the North Koreans who are allowed to farm in areas within
the DMZ, they need all the rice paddies they can get.
If you will read my statement about who is allowed near the DMZ, perhaps
you will be able to understand what I was saying. When you have read it
a couple of times, think about it. If you know anything about East
Germany before the Wall came down, think of it as a kind, liberal, caring
place, then consider North Korea.
After you make those comparisons, consider the implied restrictions that
occur when one lives in a Dictatorship.
