ABSTRACT
This article discusses the North Korean nuclear weapons conflict and the political role of South Korea. Since 1998, 1.3 million southerners have crossed the 38th parallel to tour Mount Kumgang's slopes and steal a glimpse at the North. U.S. politicians view the project as a $500 million dollar cash cow for North Korean dictator Kim Jong II and his regime. U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice met with South Korean leaders but failed to win their agreement to block the flow of tourist buses.
