Military action won’t prevail
Korea 1950 to 1953:
“After World War II, the ambitious plans of the U.S. State Department for Asia and the Pacific were upset completely by revolution and anti-colonial wars from China to Malaysia. A major confrontation developed in Korea. Washington decided to show that Western military technology could defeat any Asian army.
“U.S. warships, bombers and artillery reduced much of Korea to rubble. Over 4,500,000 Koreans died, three out of four were civilians. 54,000 U.S. soldiers returned home in coffins. But the military, for all its technological superiority, did not prevail. After three years of intense warfare, a cease-fire was negotiated. Korea is still divided and some 40,000 U.S. troops remain in southern Korea to this day.
“Waiting for another war.”

“As a veteran of three wars, World War II, through Vietnam, with 33 years of Army service, I find this book to be the most truthful recitation of our government’s policies anywhere.” — Col. James Burkholder, U.S. Army retired.
Ignore these truths and advice from a loyal American at your peril.
