    Korean DMZ Conflict

    The Korean DMZ Conflict, also referred informally as the "Second Korean War" by some, is an ongoing series of low-level military clashes between South Korea-icon.png South Koreaball and its brother, North Korea-icon.png North Koreaball.

    Background

    Both countryballs were recently devastated by the Korean War, which had displaced millions of Koreans and left much of the Korean peninsula completely razed. For much of the following year, neither countryball was in a position to incite another unification attempt by sheer force.

    Hostilities can be traced back to the 1960s, as North Korea-icon.png North Koreaball began to increasingly fear South Korea-icon.png South Koreaball's rapid industrial growth, USA-icon.png USAball's increasing commitment in the Vietnam War, and the renormalization of relations between South Korea-icon.png South Koreaball and Japan-icon.png Japanball. North Korea-icon.png North Koreaball began to place increasing emphasis on practicing irregular warfare, agitation, and propaganda.

    Timeline

    Blue House Raid (1968)

    On the 17th of January 1968, 31 soldiers from North Korea-icon.png Unit 124, a North Korea-icon.png North Korean special operations force, cut through a section of the DMZ barbed wire under the cover of night. Their mission was specifically to infiltrate South Korea-icon.png South Koreaball's clay and assassinate the then-dictator of South Korea-icon.png South Korea, Park Chung-Hee.

    2 days later, the soldiers came across 4 woodcutters. Rather than killing them, the soldiers decided to inform the woodcutters about the glories of North Korea-icon.png North Koreaball and Juche-icon.png Juche. The woodcutters were released after being warned not to alert South Korea-icon.png South Koreaball's authorities, but they notified the police as soon as possible. By the next morning, the police and military were on full alert. The soldiers from North Korea-icon.png Unit 124 disguised themselves as South Korea-icon.png South Korean infantrymen and began to march the last 2 km to the Blue House (South Korea-icon.png South Koreaball's Presidential Palace). After passing several police units, the soldiers were stopped just a mere 800 meters from the Blue House by a police unit. They were questioned by the suspicious South Korea-icon.png South Korean officers, and one began to draw his pistol before one of the men from North Korea-icon.png Unit 124 shot him preemptively.

    A gunbattle immediately ensued as North Korea-icon.png Unit 124 attempted to flee, resulting in the deaths of 2 men from North Korea-icon.png Unit 124. An extensive hunt also followed, and a further 26 men from Unit 124 were killed. 26 South Korea-icon.png South Korean.

    Axe Murder Incident (1976)

    On the 18th of August 1976, a group of South Korea-icon.png South Korean and USA-icon.png American servicemen traveled to the Joint Security Area (JSA) to trim a poplar tree that was obstructing the watchtowers' view. Suddenly, 15 North Korea-icon.png North Korean soldiers appeared and warned the detachment to stop trimming immediately. The detachment ignored their demands.

    After being ignored by the request to halt, North Korea-icon.png North Korean Lieutenant Pak dispatched a truck carrying North Korea-icon.png North Korean troops armed with clubs and crowbars. Pak once again demanded the South Korea-icon.png South Koreans and USA-icon.png Americans to halt the trimming but was ignored once again. Pak then removed his watch, wrapped it with his handkerchief, placed it in his pocket, then shouted: "Kill those bastards!"

    The ensuing attack fatally wounded 2 men and left all but 1 injured.
