What The U.S. Wants You To Forget About North Korea

Did you know that the United States dropped more bombs on North Korea in the 1950s than it did on the entire Pacific Theater during World War II?

Did you know that the carpet bombing carried out by the United States deliberately targeted civilians, and it included at least 32,000 tons of napalm?

Over the course of just three years, the United States killed thousands of innocent civilians, and destroyed entire cities, utterly devastating a country that is smaller than the state of Florida.

Did you know that the U.S. did so much damage in North Korea, the Air Force estimated that the destruction was proportionately greater than what the U.S. did to Japan in World War II, which included completely destroying nearly 70 cities, two of which were demolished using atomic bombs.

Former Secretary of State Dean Rusk said the U.S. bombed everything that moved in North Korea,” and when it ran out of urban targets, it began bombing irrigation damns, which flooded farmlands and destroyed crops.

When you look at what the U.S. did less than 70 years ago, is it any wonder that North Korea would want to isolate itself from the world? Are you surprised that a sovereign nation would want to develop nuclear weapons, in order to have a chance at defending itself from a future attack?

The U.S. overthrows governments, destroys cities, and kills innocent civilians with no remorse, and Americans let it happen believing the lies and propaganda that are created to justify the war crimes.

If you truly want to understand the current state of affairs between the U.S. and North Korea, then you have to take into account everything the U.S. has done to devastate and to isolate North Korea in the past—and that is something everyone should be talking about.

    We knew the US was at war with Korea and very many other countries since WW11. We knew it (the US) wiped out Hiroshima and Nagasaki at the end of WW11 and devastated Vietnam and inflicted it’s population horrible crime for power politics but never knew it has done so much destruction in Korea. One has to read “Confessions of an Economic Hit Man” to understand how and why the US interferes in the affairs of third countries all over the world. Vile and destructive it’s tactics may have been though the US has changed the world so much. What puzzles me is; how it (the US) survives as a democracy.

    Who says America has democracy. They have democracy if it is only to elect a president. What is more important is what happens to him once in the White House. This one can see readily in what has happened to Donald Trump within the first one hundred days in office. He is now a meek mouse in the hands of the Military Industrial Complex and Wall Street.

    No one person is bigger than the American establishment. Everybody who comes to occupy the White House succumbs to its wiles and end up Yes Men. Some do it willingly, some are forced and some acquiesce as in the case of Donald Trump.
    If there is a great difference between the two major parties – the Democratic and Republican one could say there is a semblance of democracy. There is hardly any difference. This is what is called the Washington Establishment made of Robber Barons and their descendants the Neo Cons.

    Their modus operandi is to prey on and exploit the rest of the world for the welfare of the one percent in the US who owns the 99%. America’s poor suffer happily in the joy that America is the Greatest Country in the world – when they hardly know what is there in the rest of the world or even for that matter where it is?

    They hardly care for and are immune to the suffering of millions of innocents who suffer Americas inhumanity towards the rest of the world. As for everything for America the sun is already setting with the end of globalisation and return to an inward looking world that will be dominated by Nationalistic sentiments.
