As someone that has lived in South Korea very close to the border, I know people who have family across that border. These sanctions give North Korea the narrative that America is the reason they are poor. If we take away sanctions the country will need to stand on its own. Also, these sanctions have clearly only hurt the lives of the average person while not changing the system. Sanctions starve the poor and hurt the average person while their leader lives a lavish lifestyle. Hopefully you change your mind. As democrats, I would hope you could see the danger this does to the average North Korean rather than how it might slightly effect their leaders.
