New “Hobbit” Film Gives Glimpse of North Korean History

There is another film out now with themes relating to North Korea.  The Hobbit – The Battle of the Five Armies offers a look at what the “holocaust from the air” that the US in the 1950s inflicted on almost every city in North Korea was like.  The US intentionally targeted defenseless civilians.  There was no escape.  See here for more details.

Director Peter Jackson captures WWI veteran Tolkien’s description of what it is like for a civilian population to be ravaged by a flying demon:


A demon that perhaps shares some other attributes with the US, as well:

History professor Bruce Cumings, who has closely studied North Korea, notes that it became a security state precisely “because of the holocaust the North experienced during the Korean War.”  This is one of those things the US conveniently doesn’t “look backwards” at.  Indeed, the USA’s attack on North Korea is referred to in the US as the “Forgotten War”!  But in North Korea, not so much…

However, and despite massive expertise saying that North Korea was probably not involved in the Sony Hack (see headlines from this and last week), Obama has found the inner strength to defy his own words (which were copied from Clinton and others) and “look backwards” at the hacking incident.  As in the case of the chemical attack in Ghouta, Syria, Obama is dishonestly blaming someone the US wants to target, and is saying a “proportional response” is justified.

This has dire implications for US civilians.  By saying proportional responses are now justified, Obama is telling North Korea that the US will not stop it from carrying out a proportional response to the US-inflicted North Korean holocaust.  That means Obama is going to have US forces stand down while North Korea kills a number of US citizens proportional to the number of Koreans killed by the US.  Thus, Obama will be allowing North Korea to kill approximately twenty-one-million-seven-hundred-sixty-thousand US citizens (21,760,000).

Well, it’s gonna be rough, but you can’t say it’s not fair.  As Obama says, proportional is proportional…

    Aren’t you stretching logic a bit too far to make your point?

      Point is US Wouldn’t want a proportional response to a holocaust it carried out. I think that’s correct. Is that the point you were talking about?


        It just seems that just because Obama declares ‘a proportional response’ (which
        we all know is just more bluster from this incompetent, even though he and his
        cohorts are doing all they can to precipitate a nuclear war with Russia with
        nothing but lies and regime changes both near Russia’s borders (Ukraine) and other
        non-compliant regimes around the Middle East), you have turned that utterance
        on its head by saying that the North Koreans (also lethal idiot tyrants) would
        attempt a similar ‘proportional response’ against the U.S. proper, or one, or some,
        of our sycophantic ‘allies’.

        North Korea doesn’t have the ability pull off a large enough attack even with their
        nukes unless they were able to smuggle in a suitcase nuke. They could do some damage, but not the magnitude that Russia will unleash on us if we continue to push them.

        The NKs prefer to nip at our ankles like a small dog all the while knowing we have
        screwed ourselves financially and will soon collapse on our own, something Bin Laden
        intended and succeeded in doing by baiting W. Bush and his cohorts who are
        belligerent, small minded psychopaths who fell right into his trap and destroyed us
        with debt that China can use to destroy us. Obama is just the patsy of TPTB who is there to continue the big plan to eliminate billions of us as the New World Order plan continues to unfold.

        Merry Christmas or Happy Hanukkah

          You made the same point I was making just in a different way. What you said was intended to be implied in what I said.

          • CEDRICWARD

            What we ‘imply’, without being clearly stated,
            is subject to not being communicated or understood.
            You’re the published author, so I assume you will
            defend your writing even if they are deficient in small ways.

            Words of wisdom! Thank you.

          • cyndyt

            I had no problem understanding your point and agreeing with it.

  • CB1138

    “it became a security state precisely “because of the holocaust the North experienced during the Korean War.” Wasn’t it a dictatorship that invaded the South to start the war in the first place?

    • Robert Barsocchini

      More complex than that. Check the sources in the article linked above.

  • So you’re saying that NK doesn’t hate us “for our freedom”?
