Re: On Korean War anniversary, North says U.S. started it and was beaten
That's what I was talking about!
The History Channel said on Fire and Ice that the Eighth Army used Scorched
(soviet technique) in their retreat.
What I was trying to say was that the North Koreans tend to use reports from
other country's news reports and then they exagerrate them to create
This agitprop only works well in the third world countries North Korea likes
to have picnics with. I'm glad you discovered kcna (you'll see where
Ohmynews, Tongil News, and JHK tend to be partially coming from).
Another source is www.dprkorea.com - but if your internet
connection gets slower the North Koreans are just having a friendly peak.
How do you think their software explosion they brag about came about?
I love the absolute hypocrisy of North Korea condemning Japan from
a Japanese server while criticising their US aid-givers of stealing money
from the South.
Heh heh, and what kind of a commie symphathizer brings up Japanese
ODA funds as having made enough reparations nationally through providing
capital to promote a highly competitive and successful free-market economy?
I'm preaching the virtues of capitalism as a way to avenge the comfort
Have you noticed historically alleged American war crimes are usually
We can say that Dresden and the Tokyo firebombings were directed at
Does anyone notice that Americans are the first to acknowledge their war
Everybody does, some countries just don't want to admit it!
Anyway, I'll go do some research and see if the history channel was wrong
the scorched-earth policy. If it was right I'll see if Korean civilians
(I bet they were).
Another thing on Japan - around 1/10 of the population of Hiroshima at the
time of the a-bombing was made
up of - what non-japanese ethnic group?
