If Korea should ever reunite, do you think it will rather be under communist rule like Vietnam, or capitalist rule like Germany?

If you think North Korea or China are truly communist, you are delusional. They are the most neocolonial people on this planet.

South Korea has a more powerful military plus American backing so there's no way North Korea could ever win in a war.

If North Korea decides to invade the South then they're fucked. China would basically say "fuck that shit" because they wouldn't want to get into conflict with the United States. I can't see the South doing anything to provoke a war. The North will

Capitalist. South Korea has more firepower and a more appealing lifestyle. I mean, all you'd need to be more appealing is to have food at this point, but SK far surpasses that and actually lives in luxury. I can't see Juche taking over the peninsula

More than likely collapse but who will oversee their recovery efforts? China or the United States?

North Korea isn't communist, they aren't even Marxist-Leninist, they follow an idea called Juche that in practice mixes autarky and totalitarianism.

Even Vietnam is now becoming quite capitalist.

A quick comparison showed the South is militarily stronger which actually surprised me. They'd probably win an open war.

I imagine it will eventually be as is happening in Cuba.

Capitalist considering neither nation is communist, North Korea operates under Juche socialism though

That's like asking if there will be another war (technically continuation of the existing because they never ended the first) and that North Korea will win. That's the only way they would be communist in my opinion.

Capitalist. Its the only way they'd benefit anything worthwhile to the world other than just cheap labor.

It will be capitalist. Even North Korea itself is gradually stepping away from Communism by removing a prohibition against sharecropping.

Well, I doubt any conflict there would be strictly north vs south.

The South has our support and we will never lose because we seem to always get our way in foreign affairs.
