Stone called it international aggression. So did Huberman and Sweezy, saying:

"....we have come to the conclusion that (South Korean president) Syngman Rhee deliberately provoked the North Koreans in the hope that they would retaliate by crossing the parallel in force. The northerners fell neatly into the trap."

Beating up on North Korea persists. It's done for geopolitical reasons. Washington needs enemies. When none exist they're created. North Korea comes straight from central casting.

Pyongyang's wanted normalized relations for decades. US administrations refuse. Tensions remain. Occasionally they escalate. It's unsure what's next. Waging war on the Korean peninsula assures losers, not winners.

On March 11, North Korea cut its hotline with the South. It abrogated the 1953 armistice. It did so as US and South Korean forces began joint exercises. They're provocative when held.

Days earlier, the Security Council voted new sanctions. They followed Pyongyang's mid-February nuclear test. They targeted its banking and finance system. They froze normal international transactions.

They involved other restrictions. North Korea said "the US is set to light a fuse for nuclear war." Its military "exercise(s) the right to a (defensive) preemptive nuclear attack."

Its state-run Rodong Sinmun said "the armistice agreement has been nullified. (N)o one can expect what will happen next."
