US Imperialists' War Crimes Nothing New

The recent revelation that the so called "United States" is the worst human rights abuser in world history should come as a non-surprise to anybody who is both properly schooled and not insane. The American consumerists may all be brainwashed into believing the lies of the US capitalist corporate Pentagon-controlled Bush clique-owned so called "media", but even former US Attorney General Ramsay Clark knows that "U.S. Atrocities Are Not Things of the Past", proving that it is not impossible for an evil Yankee oppressor to be enlightened, provided one is progressive enough :
The Korean people were victims of atrocious crimes in the U.S.-launched Korean War from 1950 to 1953. In the three-year war, about 6 million Korean people were sacrificed, and 4 million of the total war dead were civilians, not combatants. Immoral massacres and indiscriminate napalm- or germ-bombing by the U.S. troops took their lives.

But the world knows only distorted facts about this, because mass media and major powers of the world have schemed to cover up the truth on a large scale for fear of the disclosure of facts about U.S. troops’ atrocities. So, we have an important duty to make public the truth of history.

Of course, the Korean people themselves, at the vanguard of the world's progressives' anti-US anti-imperialist revolutionary struggle, have known too well the barbarous blood-thisrty nature of US imperialism, as the wounds of US-inflicted war atrocities still leave lingering pain in their memory, reminds the Pyongyang Times :
War atrocities still lingering pain

US troops brutally killed the Koreans in Sinchon and other places of the country during the Fatherland Liberation War (June 25, 1950-July 27, 1953).

Giving vent to anger at the killing of his parents, relatives and villagers by the enemy troops at Kalma Village in Unyong-ri, Phyongwon County, South Phyongan Province during the temporary strategic retreat in the war, Ri Kyu Ho, working at the Junggu Public Building Construction Company, said:

“At that time I was nine years old. American troops seized my village and burnt it down. Gunshots and screams were heard here and there. The smell of blood filled the whole village. My village turned into a human slaughterhouse.”

From the first day when they stormed into the village, the US soldiers went on a killing spree, shooting and burning the inhabitants regardless of old and young. They broke into his house and dragged out his father, mother and even sick elder aunt.

The rest is too disturbingly atrocious to copy-paste here, so the faithful readers of Songun Blog are invited to continue reading the rest of the heart-breaking story on Naenara.

The thing to always remember though is this : US imperialists are the worst human rights abusers in human history. Never forget and never forgive. “We will take a thousand-fold vengeance for our parents’ deaths.”
