Re: The Hidden History of the Korean War
Over 100 pages into the book now and Stone is still confused as to how a
major invasion by NK could have taken place as a complete surprise by
America, Russia, South Korea and China. He says it takes 30 days or more of
troop movements, etc. to prepare for an invasion of this magnitude and no one
was expecting it. As a matter of fact there were papers circulating that it
could not happen.
One the other hand he suspects conspiracies which include Chiang, Rhee,
MacArthur, Willowby, Dulles, Truman and a few others. My question is that
with such a widespead conspiracy, with everyone in on it, how in the world
could it have been hushed up so much. He makes the point that the invasion
was on a Sunday, same as Pearl Harbor. Stone raises a lot of good questions.
He makes the point that Russia didn't really want to help Nk because they
were afraid NK wouldn't stop at SK but would invaded Japan and start WWIII.
