"The Korean Crisis of 2013: A Missed Opportunity To Free A Nation and Unite Asia.
Do you think that this crisis is THE test? Has Humanity mutured enough this time to handle it and avoid nuclear war? "
The TRUE question that you are seeking to ask is - "Has Humanity matured enough to handle and avoid nuclear war?"
The answer is YES. We know the dangers and fears over nuke toys, the logic and reasons for non-proliferation, BUT unfortunately, there are still a
dangerous FEW whom are totally stupid and irrational, and presume nukes are a solution to everything in life, which is a fallacy, but nevertheless,
what can one expect from the insane?
As for the second question of the korean crisis of 2013 and opportunity to free a nation, I believe that the answer will have to begin after world war
Russia and USA had agreed to boot out imperial japan from Korea, russia from the north and US from the south. They succeeded and meet in between at
the 38th parallel.
US was willing to concede the lands to koreans for self determination and even organized an election whereby a president was elected, but
unfortunately, Stalin did not, renaged upon UN ideals to end all conquest, and supported a trouble-maker street kid bully masquerading as
anti-japanese freedom fighter - Kim Ill Sung to become the ruler of communist north korea.
This bully then blitzkrieg upon the unarmed and pacifists all koreans in the peninsula down to the south. Fortunately, US and UN came in to protect
the korean people and drove the streetpunk back to the Yalu River.
Unfortunately, China supported that streetpunk and warned it will not tolerate any incursions across the border.
China then was led by the devil Mao. General MacArther, then the commanding officer, was prepared to teach devil Mao a lesson he would never forget
for supporting that streetpunk and interfering in Korean affairs. China under Mao was not recognized by UN then, as only Chiang Kai Shek was the
legitimate China ally in WW2 and its affairs, whom was booted out of China by Mao who reserved his forces in fighting Japan, then with a weakened
Chiang, seized power.
Unfortunately, the petty public official known as Truman got cold feet with a war with China,let alone use atomic bombs, and refused to supply
MacArther with even conventional arms, resulting in him having to retreat 35 miles south of Seoul and being sacked.
General Ridgeway was tasked to take over, and managed to lead the american and UN forces across back the 38 parallel and into striking distance of
Pyongyang, but he stop short, as he obeyed his orders and oath to the coward Truman, and negotiated for peace, which resulted in the streetpunk
returning to Pyongyong, supported by Mao.
Mao refused peace and stalled negotiations for 2 years. Finally, the then President Eisenhower had enough and did what MacArther recommended then -
atomic weapons will be used if Mao does not back off. True enough, within months, in 1953, a truce was declared, as Mao then did not have nukes.
The point is this - General MacArthur had been proven right in his strategy towards NK and China - using atomic bombs if need be although not
necesarry as conventional artillery barrages would do.
Grandpop Kim - Kim Ill Sung - had stuck his middle finger to UN and went on a conquest - that itself was an act of war against UN that had sworned
never again to wars of conquest by any nations after WW2 and are prepared to defend it militarily, and proven when MacArther pushed him back.
Although the terror of atom bombs cannot be disputed, but then, it would have put enough fear into rogue China then, to play ball to UN. If they don't
and the attack into China occurred with arti, thousands would die.
But the thing is - If MacArthur had done that, it would have freed the Chinese People from the devil Mao, and politics would have changed. The
original commies were not of the Stalin mould, but more towards socialism, and market orientated policies to upliff the lives of the Chinese masses,
such as the reformist Deng Xio Peng whom Mao jailed for decades out of petty jealousy.
But Mao was spared by the stupid and yellow Truman, allowed Mao to rule, and within decades, MILLIONS of our fellow chinese brothers and sisters were
slaughtered or led to their deaths thanks to the cult and policies of Mao for decades, and today, the NK streetpunk's descendent is threatening
We mankind failed the first test over Korean War 1. The result of the Korean War 2 is still...awaiting and need not fail if we know what to do with
NK-the true culprit, when the war is won. It is now a different China today, more keen on economic uplift than failed idealogies of the past. One
thing for sure is that US,SK and China will not need to use nukes to deal with Fatboy Kim . Only the insane will - NK.
