Korea

 © MMVIV V.1.1.7
by Morley Evans

What's with those crazy North Koreans?


The photo above which is still popular in North Korea might have something to do with it.

In The Korean War: A History, Bruce Cumings provides a collection of essays which shed light on the issue.  He tells us that the American war in Korea from 1950 to 1953 is well documented. What is not understood in the United States is that the Korean War started in 1931 and continues to this day — 83 years and counting! Why are those (North) Koreans crazy?

Whereas General Douglas MacArthur understood and respected the Japanese (Washington did not), this did not extend to the Koreans. MacArthur was not alone. Nobody in Washington or Tokyo understood and respected Koreans, Cummings instructs his readers. We need to look at the Empire of Japan and its colonial history to find the origins of the Korean War and what motivates North Korea today, Cummings says.

First of all, Koreans are a unique people with a distinct ethnicity that is 1,000 years old. Americans saw Korea at the lowest point in Korean history when the United States was involved in the civil war there. Koreans are as different from Chinese, Vietnamese and Japanese as French, Spanish and Italians are from each other and from Germans.

Second, the Empire of Japan was created by Japanese who wrestled power away from the Shogun and restored the Emperor after the civil war that followed the "friendly visits" of the American, Commodore Perry, between 1852 and 1854. These Japanese businessmen modeled the Empire of Japan along European and American lines for fun and profit. Japan was an ally of the United States until 1941.

Third, Washington's empire (that is not an empire) has been a serious problem since it was created. One can look at the history of the country that calls itself the United States of America. One will see unremitting expansion and aggression — cloaked as a policy of spreading liberty, "free enterprise" and democracy — undermining and destroying societies as if they have no value. The only good people from Washington's perspective are those who are under Washington's thumb. That includes Americans, themselves.

Fourth, Korean people populated the peninsula and were also a presence north of the Yalu River in Manchuria from where came the Ching Dynasty, AKA the Manchu Dynasty, China's last Imperial rulers. In 1931, Manchuria became Manchukuo, a Japanese colony with a terrible colonial record, not unlike the colonies of European countries and the United States..

Fifth, Koreans fighting alongside Chinese communists in Manchuria were a major part in the insurgency against the Japanese. Kim Il Sung was their leader. Some Koreans collaborated with the Japanese during the period when the Empire of Japan colonized Korea. They would go on to make fortunes and become the leaders of South Korea after 1945. The United States would become allied with them and with Japan, America's old friend that had to be atom bombed to bring it to heel.

Finally, The Koreans who fought for Korean independence from the Empire of Japan became the leaders of North Korea. The Korean communists never did take orders from Stalin or even from Mao. Kim Il Sung and his party were independent, like Tito of Yugoslavia. For them, the enemy is still Japan's leaders who are the sons and grandsons of the people who ran the Empire of Japan — along with the Korean traitors who are running dogs of the Americans. The North Korean leaders know their enemies by name, it is personal. For the North Korean leadership, the dead are not forgotten and the wounds are still open and bleeding. The war for Korean independence and unification continues unabated. Americans can reflect on their own civil war to see parallels. Meanwhile, Washington stokes the fires and fans the flames. War "games" regularly staged on North Korea's doorstep are a constant provocation. Uncle Sam never stops making trouble. What would Washington have thought if the USSR had regularly staged war "games" in Mexico or Canada right on the US border? What if the USSR had killed half the American population and bombed every American city and town flat?

Open your eyes and look around. You will see the truth. Washington is everywhere stirring up trouble and inciting "revolution" to bring peace and freedom to the world. The world is not peaceful and it gets less free every moment as friendly old Uncle Sam pushes the world toward WW III.

Japan has been apologizing for WW II since 1945. The United States has not apologized to anyone for anything it has ever done. Believing it is blameless, the United States never will. Read The Korean War: A History by Bruce Cumings and find out what happened and what continues to happen. You will have the answer to the question: What's with those crazy North Koreans?

Of course, a constant state of war is good business for the leaders of North Korea too.




We don't do things like this so the items below are probably just communist propaganda:

Novel:
Ha Jin’s novel War Trash rings true on every page: His protagonist’s unit crossed the Yalu to find empty land, “with at least four-fifths of the houses leveled to the ground.” The farther south they went, even fewer houses remained. The image of a blind woman “in a ruffly white dress” picking through a garbage dump, a toddler strapped to her back, remains with him forever as a sign of human resilience. Even amid the blasted landscape, Korean women sang songs, sometimes for hours in the evening, and remained so fond of cosmetics that most had a pouch of stuff to make up their faces (few Chinese women over forty bother with wearing skirts, let alone makeup). He came upon a prison camp holding hundreds of women guerrillas; women sang there, too; “their voices transported me into reveries.” He noticed that Chinese and North Korean soldiers paid for what they took from civilians, whereas South Korean troops just took. How is it that a Chinese foot soldier sees these things, but Americans apparently didn’t? Then after he was captured, he wondered why American doctors and nurses were so kind to him.

General Douglas MacArthur

© MMXIV V.1.0.4
by Morley Evans


Manila cica 1945

General of the Army

The memory of General Douglas MacArthur  has been taken over by people who have recast his image into a form that suits their war-mongering. MacArthur was on the outs before WW II. That's why he was a "military advisor" in the Philippines and why Washington ignored his requests for support before the Japanese attacked on December 7, 1941 — and also throughout the war. The reason MacArthur was ignored is that Washington knew all about what was going to happen. FDR was engineering it. MacArthur was critical of the unnecessary loss of life that typified the campaign waged by the Navy and Marines and was appalled by the atom bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki when the Japanese were looking for a way to surrender with some honour. Like most top dogs, MacArthur may have been an egomaniac, but he had a gift for accurate pithy statements too:

Our country is now geared to an arms economy which was bred in an artificially induced psychosis of war hysteria and nurtured upon an incessant propaganda of fear. 
- General Douglas MacArthur

The reconstruction of Japan was the high point of MacArthur's career — not the successful landing at Inchon. MacArthur understood and respected the Japanese and he was wise enough to know that no one is smart enough to design a human society from scratch.

A Kiss to Build a Dream On

Louis Armstrong – A Kiss To Build A Dream On
Songwriters: Bert Kalmar / Harry Ruby / Oscar Hammerstein, II



Give me a kiss to build a dream on
And my imagination will thrive upon that kiss
Sweetheart, I ask no more than this
A kiss to build a dream on

Give me a kiss before you leave me
And my imagination will feed my hungry heart
Leave me one thing before we part
A kiss to build a dream on

When I'm alone with my fancies...I'll be with you
Weaving romancies...making believe they are true

Give me your lips for just a moment
And my imagination will make that moment live
Give me what you alone can give
A kiss to build a dream on

(instrumental break)

When I'm alone with my fancies...I'll be with you
Weaving romancies...making believe they are true

Give me a kiss to build a dream on
And my imagination will thrive upon that kiss
Ah sweetheart, I ask no more than this
A kiss to build a dream on

A Kiss To Build A Dream On lyrics © EMI Music Publishing
composed by Bert Kalmar, Harry Ruby and Oscar Hammerstein II in 1935.

Why don't they don't make songs like that anymore?

Ariel Sharon

© MMXIV V.1.2.3
by Morley Evans

Ariel Sharon
I do not mourn the passing of Ariel Sharon ( who was born Ariel Scheinermann).

Ariel Sharon was a monster. Sharon typifies the people who run the Zionist project in Palestine that they call "Israel" the "Jewish" state. By contrast, Yitzhak Rabin was an anomaly who proved that all Israelis are not like Ben-Gurion, Meir, Begin, Shamir, Sharon and Netanyahu. Rabin belied the founding myth of Israel. Though born a Zionist, Rabin was becoming a member of the human race, so they had to kill him. General Peled is another example of an Israeli human being and so is his son. There are more. In fact, Jews have always been among the leaders in the peace, human rights, justice, anti-war and anti-Israel movements. Those Jews don't control the US Congress, or own the world's propaganda industries. Those Jews do not have billions, they have to scrounge for funds to fight Goliath.

Sharon believed he was different from other people. Sharon's mind was afflicted with a paranoiac racist ideology wrapped in a crack-pot theory. Sharon saw himself as a member of a noble and blameless race — "the children of God" — who are endowed with extraordinary gifts. These Christ-like people have suffered unwarranted, unjust, irrational and inexplicable, persecution throughout history, Zionists believe. After the Nazis attempted to exterminate them, they say, the survivors resolved to unite in a fortress defended by a powerful military armed with the most advanced weapons. As The Bible foretells, they think, God will gather His people from the corners of the earth and forge them into a mighty nation in the Promised Land (Palestine). The Nations will bow and pay homage to Him and His people who will rule over all.

How crazy is that?

In 1948, humanity was put on notice by the Zionists: "No more mister nice guy." Doubtful that the bagmen who fund the Zionist project with US taxpayer dollars, or the politicians who provide US military, diplomatic and intelligence assets, believe the Zionist ideology themselves. But the people who do believe it are good for business — if one's business is war. American politicians, like all politicians, believe lies of their own. Trillions of dollars have been made in the last hundred years waging war. War is a very profitable business. Who can argue with that if one's god is money? If one looks, money is behind everything they do. If one looks, none of the Zionist leaders, like Sharon and Avigdor Lieberman, can claim extraordinary achievements for themselves. They are not like Gershwin, Irving Berlin, or Einstein in whose reflected glory they bathe. They are not like your Jewish doctor, dentist or tailor either. Sharon was not a hero or a military genius. Sharon was merely a deluded common thug, a liar, pervert, mass murderer and thief.

I am glad Ariel Sharon is gone. Hopefully he will have departed for his just reward in the flaming abyss. Hopefully, the US dollar — that has been in the toilet for decades — will get flushed. Hopefully, "Israel" will lose its big US bully-boy protector and the world will be saved from a fate worse than death, incinerated by WWIII.

You won't hear the words above spoken in "Israel" at Sharon's funeral or on our Zionist-pandering media — which will eulogize Sharon and thus condemn itself — but someone has to say them.

There was a fitting end for the unrepentant monster:
http://mondoweiss.net/2014/01/showing-funeral-sharon.html
Ariel Sharon, "the bulldozer," can be pitied for what he was and for what he did.

EPILOGUE:

Jews, Christians and Muslims believe that God created everything: He created sweet and sour; dark and light; high and low; truth and lies; good and evil; nothing and something. Life is a test. What we choose matters. Judas Iscariot betrayed Jesus for thirty pieces of silver. Judas was part of God's plan and Jesus was aware of his treachery long before the night when Judas betrayed him. From the cross, Jesus forgave Judas — along with those who crucified him — saying, "Forgive them, they know not what they do."

Like Judas Iscariot, Ariel Sharon died alone, unmourned and unloved. Unlike Nelson Mandala, whom millions loved, few speak well of Sharon. The settlers ignored Sharon's funeral. They were Sharon's most-recent instruments of conquest. They are stealing what is left of Palestine from behind the walls that Sharon inspired. None of the settlers remembered their benefactor. None shed a tear because Sharon's followers' hearts are made of stone. Israelis think they are reclaiming something that was stolen from them or their ancestors millennia ago, if they think about it at all. Thieves have no time to waste on reflection and sentimentality. They have to get down to business. Their business is stealing and killing when that is required. Sharon can do nothing for them now. As far as his beneficiaries in their outlaw state are concerned, Sharon, like Judas, can rot.


1 Samuel 8:7
And the Lord said unto Samuel, Hearken unto the voice of the people in all that they say unto thee: for they have not rejected thee, but they have rejected me, that I should not reign over them.

The "children of God" are here to serve God, not to rule men and satisfy themselves. The very concept of the "State of Israel" is antithetical to the Jewish religion according to those Rabbis who are true to the Torah. They believe God regularly destroyed the kingdom of Israel whenever His people forgot, which happened whenever some of them got their hands on power.

Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely. - Lord Acton

What do you think is going to happen to "the world's only remaining superpower" and the people for whom the POTUS is god on earth? I think they are doomed, myself.

Whack a Mole

© MMXIV V.1.0.3
by Morley Evans

Dear Robert,

Doctors here are not "the best" but people here in Tommy Douglas Land believe they are. 

A friend learned this morning that his building designer had an accident while bicycling with a group in Hawaii last week. He applied the brake to avoid running into the bike in front of him. He told my friend this morning that he fell and broke both hips, a shoulder and other bones. Saskatchewan medicare rescued him by sending air ambulance to Hawaii. He is now recovering in the Pasqua Hospital. They have good hospitals in Hawaii, lots of them.

When I observed that the Pasqua Hospital is the last place in the world where I would go if injured, he flew off the handle, as always. People will defend whatever circumstance they have found that sustains them. "I'm okay, so let's not rock the boat." People will support things that are bad when they fear punishment but more importantly, they will defend things that are bad when they have been rewarded. It doesn't take much to buy them off. 

A soldier will kill and destroy — putting his soul in jeopardy — for the approval of his buddies and for a bauble pinned on his chest. He will feel great even when his legs have been blown off if he is called a hero. Slaves will help capture other slaves who have escaped. People in Regina play "Whack a Mole" to make sure everyone is dragged down to the level they are at. 

The Grant Devine Tories decided the best political strategy was to pour money onto Medicare because everyone in Tommyland loves Medicare. (The people who don't love it here, move away if they can. Saskatchewan's biggest export since 1930 has been people.) "Look what happened to Ross Thatcher," the Tories used to say. The current Tory clowns are the same. They are making "historic investments" in Medicare. It doesn't matter if Medicare needs fixing. Denying the truth and pouring money down the rathole keeps the rats happy and the Tories in power. They stole the Medicare issue from Tommy's successors which solved the Tories political problem but not the health care problem, which we don't have according to everybody here.

Why would anyone suffer such injuries falling off a bicycle? Were they going down a mountain at 90 miles an hour? Did he have a problem with his bones?

Cold?

© MMXIV V.1.0.1
by Morley Evans

How cold is it? It is colder today in Regina and Winnipeg than it is in Antarctica. Of course it is summer there. It is -35° C here and there it is -23° C. The "wind chill" here gives a subjective temperature of -50° C and the "comfort level" in Antarctica is - 33° C.

It is too cold to be outside. Period.  Stay warm.
