There is another film out now with themes relating to North Korea. The Hobbit – The Battle of the Five Armies offers a look at what the “holocaust from the air” that the US in the 1950s inflicted on almost every city in North Korea was like. The US intentionally targeted defenseless civilians. There was no escape. See here for more details.
Director Peter Jackson captures WWI veteran Tolkien’s description of what it is like for a civilian population to be ravaged by a flying demon:
A demon that perhaps shares some other attributes with the US, as well:
History professor Bruce Cumings, who has closely studied North Korea, notes that it became a security state precisely “because of the holocaust the North experienced during the Korean War.” This is one of those things the US conveniently doesn’t “look backwards” at. Indeed, the USA’s attack on North Korea is referred to in the US as the “Forgotten War”! But in North Korea, not so much…
However, and despite massive expertise saying that North Korea was probably not involved in the Sony Hack (see headlines from this and last week), Obama has found the inner strength to defy his own words (which were copied from Clinton and others) and “look backwards” at the hacking incident. As in the case of the chemical attack in Ghouta, Syria, Obama is dishonestly blaming someone the US wants to target, and is saying a “proportional response” is justified.
This has dire implications for US civilians. By saying proportional responses are now justified, Obama is telling North Korea that the US will not stop it from carrying out a proportional response to the US-inflicted North Korean holocaust. That means Obama is going to have US forces stand down while North Korea kills a number of US citizens proportional to the number of Koreans killed by the US. Thus, Obama will be allowing North Korea to kill approximately twenty-one-million-seven-hundred-sixty-thousand US citizens (21,760,000).
Well, it’s gonna be rough, but you can’t say it’s not fair. As Obama says, proportional is proportional…
