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

 

http://www.henrymark...north_korea.pdf

 

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: Pattonhttp://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.

 

Too far?

 

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.

Thanks for the education Phil. At the end of every war monuments are built to honor the fallen. Lengthy lists of casualties are compiled. I've yet to see a list of how many millionaires the conflict created. Imagine the US at the outbreak of WWII. The economy was slowly recovering from the ravages of the great depression. Then as if a light switch was thrown, millions of dollars worth of government contracts suddenly appear in order gear up our industrial base  for wartime production. Factories that poked along making minimal profits on low demand consumer goods, suddenly were getting huge contracts to make everything imaginable.

 

We seem to focus on the production of ships, planes, tanks, bombs, rifles and bullets, but actually with the hundreds of new military bases that were being built, virtually everything became in high demand. Typewriters,desks, chairs, filing cabinets, dishes and flatware, you name it, because each base was in essence its own self contained small town. I imagine there were many thousands of newly prosperous owners and managers of companies who produces all of this stuff who were truly sorry to see the war come to and end. 

 

Gee wouldn't it be great if we could have a perpetual war... or maybe a cold war where no one was actually being killed, just the constant threat of everyone being killed!! Hey, there's an idea for our times. We could spend gazillions on the development of weapons systems and have small tightly controlled conflicts far from home to keep the production lines moving.

 

I remember back in the early 70's when I was in the Air Force, there was a small scandal when a congressman who hadn't gotten the memo to keep his mouth shut, wondered aloud how an ashtray for a military version of a Lear jet that shuffled general officers around the country could cost $327.00 dollars each. The congressman's remarks were passed on by a reporter, who's editor was obviously asleep at the wheel and didn't squash the story. So there were 3 days of feigned shock and outrage at this grievous affront to the American taxpayer.

 

A few years ago it was reported that some contractor in Afghanistan (Halliburton perhaps) provided meals for our troops at the princely cost of over $20.00/ meal/troop. Even when the cash cow is dry, we just print up some more monopoly money to keep the illusion going until the day it all just collapses.

Great stuff, Chuck.

 

From the movie, JFK, Colonel Prouty's character (played by Donald Sutherland), says:

 

"The organizing principle of any society, Mr. Garrison, is for war. The authority of the state over its people resides in its war powers. Kennedy wanted to end the Cold War in his second term. He wanted to call off the moon race and cooperate with the Soviets. He signed a treaty to ban nuclear testing. He refused to invade Cuba in 1962. He set out to withdraw from Vietnam. But all that ended on the 22nd of November, 1963."

Our military organization today bears little relation to that known by any of my predecessors in peacetime, or indeed by the fighting men of World War II or Korea.

 

Until the latest of our world conflicts, the United States had no armaments industry. American makers of plowshares could, with time and as required, make swords as well. But now we can no longer risk emergency improvisation of national defense; we have been compelled to create a permanent armaments industry of vast proportions. Added to this, three and a half million men and women are directly engaged in the defense establishment. We annually spend on military security more than the net income of all United States corporations.

 

This conjunction of an immense military establishment and a large arms industry is new in the American experience. The total influence -- economic, political, even spiritual -- is felt in every city, every State house, every office of the Federal government. We recognize the imperative need for this development. Yet we must not fail to comprehend its grave implications. Our toil, resources and livelihood are all involved; so is the very structure of our society.

 

In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the militaryindustrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist.

 

We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes. We should take nothing for granted. Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals, so that security and liberty may prosper together.
