I read a monograph by Henry Mark Holzer the other night, forty-nine pages which served to further focus my understanding of global strategy in the last century.
THE JUNE 25, 1950, NORTH KOREAN INVASION OF SOUTH KOREA
The Rest of the Story
I invite you to read a thoughtful look back at the history and maneuvers behind the invasion. I shall attempt a brief summary:
Stalin was implored to open a second front against Japan. Agreed with territorial inducements. Became proconsul of North Korea. Saw Mao as a possible ex-Marxist/anti-Marxist co-existing with America.
Kim Il-sung sought Stalin's help in attacking the South, reuniting the country. Simultaneously, Mao expelled Chiang and sought Stalin's assistance in attacking and taking Formosa.
Truman continued the exclusion of Korea stated by Acheson and predecessors, yet saw an opportunity for pressuring Congress into a large defense authorization.
Stalin provides thousands of tons of heavy weapons, T-34 tanks, heavy artillery, heavy mortars. Kim uses Stalin-trained Koreans and Mao-trained Koreans, hardened veterans.
The invasion pushes the skeletal South Korean force and its 500 US advisors to the Southeastern tip. McArthur lands at Inchon and pushes to the Yalu.
China sends volunteers and the stalemate at the 38th persists.
Stalin got his buffer. Truman got his large defense authorization.
Acheson's Press Club omission was policy and figured into the equation. Washington intelligence knew of the large buildup, knew invasion was coming. McArthur was out of the loop, preoccupied in Japan.
This cynical sacrifice of some 40,000 US lives by the Truman-Marshall-Hillenkoetter group typifies the calculations and manipulations we see in Pearl Harbor, Tonkin Gulf, 9/11.
Forrestal was not down with the large defense authorization and was jettisoned. http://www.dcdave.co...le4/021110.html
Just as Patton was planning on going to California to run for U.S. Senate, then the presidency, to finish the job, go to Moscow. Robert Wilcox, Target: Patton. http://militarycorru...com/patton1.htm
We see in Stephen Kinzer, The Brothers, John Foster Dulles and Allen W. Dulles were raised by secretaries of state, interned at Versailles, served hidden clients for Sullivan & Cromwell and the overt client Germany, then subverted countries (Colby & Dennett, Thy Will Be Done).
Preparata (Conjuring Hitler) showed Bank of England director (1922-1944) Montagu Norman created nationalist Germany like an orchid. It tied up the Soviet bear until the Eagle was allowed to land.
Intrepid called Donovan "one of ours" indicating the Revolution was not as complete as advertised.
Now the Arab Spring sweeping the rest of the secular rulers (after OIF hit Saddam) is preface for rapid withdrawal and arming of "moderate Syrian forces" to create a very useful menace, ISIS.
Just as Putin came to power in '99 creating a Chechan villain to cover his KGB veterans blowing up Moscow.
An homage to OKBomb and John Doe Number Two that Unknown Soldier of the Shadow Government.
9/11--Kevin Ryan, Another Nineteen: Investigating Legitimate Suspects in 9/11 together with the engineering papers of Tony Szamboti show Ace Elevator likely installing nanothermite with wireless igniters, Raytheon-type autopilot override allowing complete novices to fly sophisticated craft in precise patterns.
Now Iran is given the Bomb. Kerry insists. "Here, please, take it. They promised me a Nobel and a pony."
When the EMP reduces the population of CONUS by 90% the really good wine will be drunk.
Korea, like Pearl (and 9/11), was not a surprise. Not a surprise, at all.
Do we see a preparation for the tripartite world of 1984?
We need to macerate the U.S. through rapid unassimilated immigration and an EMP-induced battlefield.
We need to make an example of Greece to enforce growing centralization of authoritarian power.
In parallel fashion, Putin eliminates critical journalists and opposition parties.
Xi re-educates bureaucrats and miltitary in political correctness.
The Supreme Court is one pincer, the other, sharia law.
Blair-Orwell envisioned ISOC English Socialism while the Leftist-Islamist reality is ISOC Islamic Socialism.
And of course the three superstates contend in the nonaligned quadrilateral.
