Re: The Hidden History of the Korean War
Okay, I'm feeling brave here, so you can beat me up if necessary.
But that is a real question. How did they pull that off with no one
knowing? Well, how 'bout the news the last couple of days about the
terrorist of 9/11?
From what I have read Truman was giving the Joint Chief's of Staff a hard
time and stone walling them about everything. He didn't like them, he was
jealous of them, etc. MacArthur was having a good time being Emporer in
Japan and knew that Truman was beating up the military and stonewalling it's
With all of that going on, it is not hard to believe that they just
missed it because they were invovled in their own agenda, or MacArthur got
wind but figured Truman would stone wall him - sort of like McCoy in Under
Okay, starting beating me up.

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
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
were afraid NK wouldn't stop at SK but would invaded Japan and start WWIII.
