  2. It's amazing that China at that time was not even 1/10 th of what it is now but still went war with America who nuked Japan(one who invaded China) some year ago
    Have to say they have gut to fight

  3. The US were responsible for both the Korean and Vietnam war yet they named it civil wars lol. Sad reality is the soldiers fought and died in two useless wars.

  4. Why was it futile? South Korea exists today because of the intervention of American forces. You can't see a more distinct example of the fruits of American sacrifices in South Korea's incredible economic growth and standard of living today.

  5. My father went to Korea for this war as a volunteer.Many American war prisoners said they were misguided,they were told that they were UN peace keepers that didn't have to fight,just patrol was OK.And even if they had to fight,their Chinese enemies were very poorly equipped and easy to defeat.Actually this wasn't the case.In the end we Chinese didn't think it was a war,but a massacre.For most of the time American army and marines were slaughtered.they were not fighting in our standard.

  6. So I'm guessing you've never bothered to explore the Korean War from the NK side of the altercation.

    Washington saw a greater benefit in allying with the Japanese Empire after WW2 and the US signed the Taft-Katusra agreement. The Koreans quickly established a government with Communist learnings that was quickly and forcibly outlawed on December the 12th, 1945. It was under the USAMGIK. The Korean government established by it's citizens was promptly outlawed and the right to political assembly was brutally quashed.

    During the Korean War, 20 – 30% of the population was killed by bombings. The US government participated in a multitude of war crimes. They strafed Korean refugees, dropped at least 635,000 tons of bombs, and what about the serial rapes and killings commited by US soliders?

    "One woman, Kim Hwa Sil, defended herself against attempted rape and was put naked in the courtyard of a building where much of the population was being interned. The others were forced to watch her torture as a club one meter long was forced into her vagina. She immediately died and her body was hung on a telegraph pole. These scenes were photographed by American soldiers. Ten other women were then raped in succession by two or three soliders, beaten by clubs, kicked, and had clubs forced between their legs. Children were taken from their mothers and beatings, rapes and murders went on for 8 days. On October 26, the survivors were taken to the seashore and shot." -Immoveable Object, A. B. Abrams

  7. In the Netherlands we don’t talk about the Korean War much, that’s because our government is ultra liberal and as of late is starting to look more and more like a communist regime

  8. Korea is in many way the war that embodied the transition from WW2 to Cold War. But it also resembled WW1 as the front lines became static systems of trenches and other hard points with a few key locations constantly battled over and bloodied. Like the American Civil War and the Crimean War, the Korean War was fought at the junction in how wars were fought. After Korea truly grand offensives are over, now come search and destroy missions and other limited missions designed to capture strategic points; destroy the enemy with overwhelming firepower rather than seeking to outmaneuver and force a surrender.

  9. Can you talk about Indonesian invasion of east timor & the subsequent massacre committed there? It’s rarely talked about, the invasion is the result of american influence
