This issue came up concerning peace with North Korea. Some pundits and some experts (there’s a difference between the two) are suggesting that North Korea disband its army in exchange for a peace treaty with South Korea.
While this idea has merit, it is unwise. North Korea’s military is a huge employer — perhaps the largest employer in the country. How would these men earn a living otherwise? Disbanding North Korea’s army would disrupt their society, and who needs that?
