  1. The civil war in Korea is complicated by the fact the U.S.-led coalition which tried to invade North Korea in the 1950's, the army which killed thousands of civilians, and bombed much more than most realize....has never signed a peace treaty with North Korea - which was saved from 'Western' Occupation by the Chinese Army.
    Regardless, and I do have recent posts on Korea, the 'Axis of Evil' stories by the US and UK are a farce about making people who try to limit nuclear weapons proliferation - signatories to the NPT - the supposed 'danger' to peace when they use nuclear power technology.
    Also look up 'The Third Pillar of the NPT'.
    To view the Korean story properly is hard for an English speaker...media 'history' being a lie promoting the wishes and interests of nuclear armed countries and telling a 'story' which does not properly show their actions.
    Search 'North Korea' in my blog and see Notable Posts in the Topical Index for more information.
    Iran's mischaracterization as covered by CASMII gives an interesting view of how the lying never stops.
