Nice theory, too bad it's nonsense. Seriously, do you have any evidence?
Isn't it much more logical that it was simply a struggle for control over Korea by the more powerful nations, that ended in a deadlock?
Korea had never been a potent independent economic player in history--I very much doubt the current status of the south, for example, was something anyone from outside Korea was expecting.
It's *not* that big a country, bro. Your argument doesn't make any sense, and you have no evidence, so please don't spread drivel. Bad enough we have Glen Beck conjecturing on camera...
