America's War on North Korea
by Stephen Lendman
China is America's target. North Korea is the punching bag.
On July 27, 1953, the Korean War ended. An uneasy armistice persists. The heavily fortified 2.5 mile Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) separates North and South. Occasional incidents occur.
Truman's war never ended. Its origin was misreported. IF Stone's " Hidden History of the Korean War " explained.
Monthly Review co-founders Leo Huberman and Paul Sweezy wrote in the preface:
"This book....paints a very different picture of the Korean War - one, in fact, which is at variance with the official version at almost every point."
Stone's investigative research presented a "full-scale reassessment of the whole" war. French publisher Claude Bourdet added:
"If Stone's thesis corresponds to reality, we are in the presence of the greatest swindle in the whole of military history....not a question of a harmless fraud but of a terrible maneuver in which deception is being consciously utilized to block peace at a time when it is possible."
