Why is this article important (in my view)? First, it illustrates some of the points Preston James has described in many of his articles (see this recent one, and this one) about how countries and people are “taken over” under the disguise of “niceness”, or the “this country is good because we supported it”. As THE USA CORP has so often done, “divide and conquer (and keep ’em divided), suppress opposition, obfuscate facts, brainwash to remove any desire for opposition”, has been a core operating principle (well, “principles”).
Second, what has been done in Korea by THE USA CORP is in some ways similar to what was done over here in the Kingdom of Hawai’i. How many people in the US (and the planet) know what was done over here? How many people know that the Hawaiian Kingdom never gave consent to being annexed by the US? How many people know about the Ku’e petitions of 1897 opposing annexation? How many people know that the “Hawaii is a state” election was completely illegal?
Yes, just like with the DPRK and Korean history, I’m sure, the suppression, obfuscation, and brainwashing has been thorough and extensive.
So read on about Korea. If Caleb’s facts are correct, you will learn a lot. More apocalypse, baby!! Keep it coming!
“…there is a great deal of confusion about issues involving the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) and its history. Each time there is an escalation of tensions on the Korean Peninsula, the level of confusion seems to get worse. The US media makes no effort to educate the public about why Korea is divided — and often blatantly distorts and lies about it.
“When the Second World War ended in 1945, the northern half of the Korean Peninsula had been liberated by Soviet troops. The southern half of the Korean Peninsula soon became occupied by US troops… The understanding at the war’s conclusion was that there would be a nationwide election, in which every political party, including the very popular Korean Workers Party, would be allowed to participate in writing a new constitution.
“However, in the southern half of the Peninsula, a military dictatorship was established. Syngman Rhee seized power and violently suppressed all opposition. The Rhee dictatorship was openly supported by the United States. Thousands of US troops poured into the country to prop up the military regime.
“When democratic and labor activists living on Jeju Island rose up against Syngman Rhee to demand the free elections promised at the end of the war, US troops joined Rhee’s forces in slaughtering thousands of innocent civilians. Thirty thousand people… were killed…
“In response to US military occupation of the southern half of Korea, the canceling of free elections, and the slaughter of innocent Korean civilians by US troops, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) based in the northern territories of the peninsula, sent forces into the south, hoping to reunify the country and drive out US troops.
“During the majority of the years between 1945 and today, the southern half of the Korean Peninsula has been ruled by unapologetic military dictators. Syngman Rhee and Park Chung Hee made no pretense of being democratic. They were violent, repressive military autocrats who were fully supported by the United States. Tens of thousands of US troops have been in southern Korea since the end of the Second World War,
“The National Security Laws in the southern part of the Korean peninsula violate any notion of “human rights” and “free speech.” In southern Korea, making any statement in support of the DPRK, or even vaguely in support of Marxism or socialism, is a very serious crime. Koreans live in fear of openly speaking about the history of their country, the continued presence of US troops, or commonly discussed political concepts like class struggle.
