"Forgotten War" Hasn't Been Forgotten!
By Don E. Porter
Has anyone remembered the “Forgotten War” or Korea 1950-53 in which over 35,000 Americans lost their lives in additions to millions of others?And who propped up the North Koreans in order to continue a war that should have been over in the first year. China and Russia provided all the weapons, manpower and airpower.So the Chinese and Russian are not our friends irrespective of what you hear from either. The North Koreans were brutal, massacring millions of civilians and murdering POWs (prisoner of wars).Korea should have been united decades ago but, again the Chinese and Russians did not want it and kept it from happening. I was in North Korea three times, first in 1952 and again in 1994 and 2004 for sports exchanges.I attended the memorial for the “Dear Leader” Kim Il-Sung,” the founder of North Korea, in 1994 with a MSYA (Make Sure You Attend) and each time viewed a country in complete disarray and suffering internally. An MOAB or a nuclear would not change things, only make matters worse for those already suffering there.MOAB stands for Massive Ordnance Air Blast or Mother of All Bombs including most powerful non-nuclear bomb. The North will not come easily to the table and will make strong demands, as their economy is in ruins, and only held up by China and Russia. Choke them off with tougher sanctions.The above writer, Don E. Porter, American veteran of the Korean War, lives in Oklahoma City, OK, the United States.
