Those who claim US success in the K.W.
forget about this immense loss of human lives.
N.Koreans could probably argue that, if the US
didn't intervene in the civil war, Koreans could
have quickly united as a one nation, avoided all
those destructions and deaths, and achieved a
more rapid economic development, avoiding all
those billions of dollars on military spending.

on the issue...fully knowing what Maury will cry about this)
...so instead of 29 million people suffering under the most autocratic dicatorship in the world today we could have had 60 million people suffering. Gee, that sure makes a lot of sense.
Im sure the 20 million Soviet citizens who died during WWII due to their own government and the 10 million killed in the purges of the 1930s are glad we didn't intervene, too.
