    Did people own that much land in the North?
    It appears the Northerners all had land and they have more land in the South of the Country as well.
    Southerners are the landless.

      Are you not ashamed to make this comment?

      You thing they are beggars. Your southerners are thieves who are stealing their properties.

      Look at Syriya and other countries, Your grandchild will go through a war again if your thinking is crooked.
