To remind readers: this was a comparison of the Korean and internal German
borders before elimination of the latter.

Here in Germany. I even visited the DDR several times during the early 1970s.
But I don't confuse issues. When was a west German shot trying to cross into
east Germany? And when was a border like in Korea ever made as airtight as in
Germany? Did east Germany have a habit of shooting down any aircraft over its
territory?

The situations were and are not comparable.

Cheers, Bob
