Listen carefully and soon you shall be able to snatch the pebble from my hand. In 1947, the UN General Assembly adopted a resolution that called for the elected representatives from each country to establish the conditions and hold an election for unifying Korea. The UN would oversee the voting. The North refused to allow the vote to unify the country and strengthend their border defenses. In May 1948, elections were held in the South. It is interesting also to note that the US looked at the 38th parallel as a temporary coordinating line with the Russians at the end of WWII. The Russians did not, tore up railroad tracks and closed the border. Damned unfriendly of them, don't you think?
