Video: U.S. Crimes of Genocide against Korea: “We Killed Off – What – 20% of the Population. We Burned Down every Town in North Korea…”

Preface by Washington’s Blog. As an American – I was born and raised, and lived my entire life in the United States – it’s easy to laugh at North Korea as an insanely backwards, laughable place … run by bozo-the-clown-crazy dictators wearing weird jumpsuits and sporting bad hairdos.

And given the incredible hardships faced by the North Korean people – and the corrupt luxury in which the “Dear Leader” and his family apparently live – it is easy to assume that regime change would be the best thing that could happen to this Godforsaken place.

But a little history shows that things are not so simple … and that the U.S. has been a big part of the problem.

By Dr. Michel Chossudovsky.  Originally published by Global Research.

The crimes committed by the US against the people of Korea in the course of the Korean War but also in its aftermath are unprecedented in modern history.

“We Killed Off – What – Twenty Percent of the Population. We Burned Down every Town in North Korea…”

The above quotation is from General Curtis Lemay, who coordinated the bombing campaign (1950-53)

Who is a Threat to Global Security? The US or the DPRK?

The public perception of the entire population of  North Korea is that the US is a threat to their national security.

During the Korean War, the DPRK lost more than 25% of its population.

The population of North Korea was of the order of 8-9 million in 1950 prior the Korean War. US sources acknowledge 1.55 million civilian deaths in North Korea, 215,000 combat deaths. MIA/POW 120,000, 300,000 combat troops wounded. What we are dealing with are crimes of genocide under international law. (Article 2 of the “Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide”(1948))

In contrast, during the Second World War, the United Kingdom lost 0.94% of its population, France lost 1.35%, China lost 1.89% and the US lost 0.32%.

Casually ignored by the Western media and the international community, the US has actively deployed nuclear weapons targeted at North Korea for more than half a century in violation of article 13b) of the 1953 Armistice agreement.

This is what Pyongyang looked like in 1953: the result of US carpet bombing of all major cities without exception. This is how it looks today.

And this is what Donald Trump wants to destroy. This urban infrastructure is largely residential ( Compare Pyongyang’s towers to the Trump Towers).

    I have said it before, and I will say it again … Who is on Wall Street? Raytheon, Haliburton, Goldman Sachs, Lockheed Martin, Boeing, BOA … Checkmate!

    Now, this is an IQ test, people, IF you Checkmate Wall Street ” what happens to the Military Industrial Complex?” Who Controls the World if Wall Street is Shorted by the People? Wall Street is the Gordian Knot.

    The American people are the only ones on the planet who can achieve this peacefully. However, if they do noting or are afraid of a little scuffle … eventually, they will all burn at 5,000-degrees. Nuclear war is Coming. This was all made easy for a reason, because the penalty for failure is very harsh, people!

    As shown in this article, the collapse of North Korea is not without significant geopolitical and economic risks:

    http://viableopposition.blogspot.ca/2017/03/the-impact-of-collapse-of-north-korea.html

    The Korean War which took three years and the lives of 2.5 million people, including more than a million combat casualties, ended up being a less than satisfying 60 year stalemate.

    Kim is a first grader with a pocket knife threatening the high school bully, a guy who’s beaten the snot out of Kim before. The high school bully is intent on putting the kid in the hospital again, not to take his pocket knife (that’s the pretense), but to force him into debt! Medical care is expensive and Kim will need a loan. You see, this bully works for the village loan sharks.

    All Kim wants is to stay out of the hospital and to stay out of debt, so now he’s yelling, “I’ve got a gun!”

    All the other kids on the playground gather around to see the fight. They’ll side with the bully because it makes them feel tough. None will ever recognize the magnitude of their own cowardice. They’ll later say, “Kim had it coming.” And they’ll fail to notice the shifty shadows at the edge of the playground — the agents provocateur who made it all happen: the loan sharks.

      Kim has Nuclear Weapons, and if things heat up, He can use them. Sooner, or Later, the Bully is going to get His Teeth Kicked in.

      • Diogenes Shrugged

        A fine sentiment and valid warning. Hopefully you feel the same about the loan sharks. The bully is merely their proxy. They’ll still benefit even if HIS teeth are kicked in.

        In my opinion, Oroville dam is a much larger threat to the U.S. than Kim, at least by an order of magnitude. Unless Kim somehow magically hits LA, DC or NYC, his impact, though momentarily sensational, will soon be forgotten. I say leave him to China and begin an orderly evacuation below the dam (2.5 million people at risk).

          Obviously, you would be caught “scared and ignorant” again, Just like on 9/11. You people never learn.

    The North Koreans are not a particularly serious existential threat to the United States. Their weapons tests are simply a way of saying, “Don’t tread on me!” They have noticed that countries with nuclear weapons are less likely to suffer attacks from the U.S. They do what they do for the same reason that a rattlesnake vibrates its tail.
    U.S. conservative neocons and liberal interventionists want missiles near the North Korean border not primarily for use against North Korea, but rather for possible preemptive strikes on China as the American Empire tries to attain full-spectrum dominance of the entire planet. In a similar vein the NATO missiles in eastern Europe are not what they claim to be – a defense against the nonexistent nuclear weapons and ICBMs of Iran – but in reality a preparation for a potential preemptive strike on Russia.

    • Villainess

      Shamefully true. But the mega-power of our deciding-billionaire-class and their wannabe ‘selected’ government officials have destroyed their ability to feel any shame, much less adjust their actions to be less shameful. They are accelerating us all (we humans and way too many of our co-evolved biosphere) into an early extinction.

  • Dr Mindbender

    You know, if I were Kim … I would be planning something very devious. I am confident with his arsenal that He can inflict a World of Pain upon the World, especially, the Chinese.

    There are many, many ways to bring Nuclear Weapons into US cities under the Radar. Missiles are not the only means of delivery!

    Now, your government has put you in danger, America, but You still do not see it, do you?

    Sad.

  • Magda Voigt

    Innocent Germany lost alone in WW2 a quarter of its population and a further quarter got mistreated and displaced; my regards to Juda-Rome-Tibet-Mekka and its evil agents.

  • Dr Mindbender

    You know, America, Missiles are the worst delivery system for atomic weapons, bar none! Kim does not need Missiles. Missiles only leave an immediate record of who launched. There are better delivery systems. Think Nuclear 9/11. You really should not go trying to start wars, America, because You just might get something you cannot even fathom.
