What Western media calls 'Communist China,' is a China governed by its Communist Party since 1949, and lying just across the Yalu River from a Korea, which between 1950 and 1953, was merciless bombed by the US, both north and south, all cities and towns of any appreciable size (except Pusan a US occupied port city), flattened into rubble to prevent Koreans from having a government of their beloved country chosen by themselves and governed by a Korean Communist Party. During the time of the 1950-1953 US announced 'police action,' later to be dubbed by criminal media 'The Korean War,' the phase "Better dead than red!" was promoted on US fake news generating media. No one ever asked Koreans, being murdered from the air, if they would rather be 'dead than red.' [1]

(By the way, fake news generating Western (capitalist) media never refers to the US, Canada, New Zealand, Australia or the nations of Europe as 'Capitalist USA,' 'Capitalist Canada,' 'Capitalist Australia,' 'Capitalist New Zealand,''Capitalist England,''Capitalist France,''Capitalist Italy,' etc, but does refer to Cuba as 'Communist Cuba,' and the part of Korea now free of US control (but not free of US brutal sanctions and threats), as 'Communist North Korea,' the US dominated part being referred to as only South Korea, not 'Capitalist South Korea.')

China is on the threshold of replacing the US as the world's most influential nation perhaps as early as in twenty years from now. During the Cold War, the ruling US 1% had its US corporate conglomerate media generating fake news that heralded European and American capitalism as 'freedom,' ignoring and avoiding mention of any comparison with the genocidal centuries of European capitalist imperialist colonial plunder, exploitation and enslavement of all the indigenous peoples of Africa, the Americas and most of Asia and the savage conquering and destroying of their, for the most part more, more scientifically, socially and culturally advanced civilizations and cultures.

The shift of world economic power to the East and South will bring about the end of the ability of Western monopolized sources of information to criminally mis-inform, dis-inform and instill the fraudulent fears that have built an infantile acceptance of continual neocolonial genocide as necessary. In a multipolar world, the absurdities, illogic and insanity that justifies US NATO UN genocide will no longer be successfully propagated. These outrageous fabrications just wont wash when exposed to the light of day by new major sources of information in Asia, Africa and Latin America that will appear as economic power shifts Eastward and Southward

With the astounding 2016 US presidential election theater threw up a Republican outsider candidate denouncing this long long time fake news generating US media, calling eighty percent of its reporters and commentators liars, we should now look back and understand that to produce fake news successfully it is necessary to block all real news that would cause the fake news to be heard, read and seen as the fake that it is and always has been, causing Americans to believe bombing and invading smaller nations is necessary and good for everyone.
Below, some real US Korean history that is well known by all Koreans, and remember, for Koreans, wherever they may be, there is only one Korea.

1871, June 10 -- Adm. Rodgers, commanding five warships and a landing party of over 1,230 men armed with Remington carbines and Springfield muskets attack Choji Fortress of Kanghwa-do, and proceed to occupy the whole island (116.8 sq mi), killing 350 Korean defenders of the island while losing only three of their own, withdrawing to China when the Korean army sends in reinforcement armed with modern weapons. This war known in Korea as Sinmi-yangyo and as the 1871 US Korea Campaign in America.[2]

1905 -- US President Theodore Roosevelt cuts all relations with Koreans, turns the American legation in Seoul over to the Japanese military, deletes the word "Korea" from the State Department's Record of Foreign Relations and places it under the heading of "Japan," approving of what will be a brutal, too often murderous, forty year occupation, during much of which, Koreans are forbidden even to speak their language; an unconstitutional act of the US president, said to have been in exchange for acceptance of the continuing US occupation of the Philippines by Japan, recognized as a half-brother empire of the European colonial powers.[3]

1918 -- President Woodrow Wilson officially recognizes Korea as territory of the Japanese Empire, refuses to receive delegations from Korea and Vietnam demanding restoration of sovereignty, delegations mistakenly hopeful for Wilson having proclaimed before both houses of Congress, as an addendum to his 'Fourteen Points" of a day earlier, "National aspirations must be respected; people may now be dominated and governed only by their own consent. Self determination is not a mere phrase; it is an imperative principle of action". that peoples and provinces are not to be bartered about from sovereignty to sovereignty as if they were mere chattels and pawns in a game, even the great game, now forever discredited, of the balance of power; but that all well-defined national aspirations shall be accorded the utmost satisfaction that can be accorded them;" a promise become known in the third world as an infamous, cruel and preposterous lie (the Japanese occupiers were deadly in punishing all those involved in the country-wide March 1st Korean Independence Movement).

1945, September 8 -- US State Department officials, arrive in Korea with the US Army, disband the government of the Korean People's Republic created September 6, in Seoul, by delegates from local peoples' offices from all provinces throughout the peninsula formed when Japan announced intention to surrender (August 10). The US proceeds without any Korean authorization whatsoever to immediately cut Korea into two parts to be occupied by US and Soviet troops, establishing a military government, flying in from Washington DC (in General MacArthur's private plane), Singman Rhee, to head it; eventually installing him as president of a separate South Korea Government that will include collaborators, and will outlaw all strikes, declare the KPR and all its activities illegal and begin a deadly terror of persecution of members of the disallowed Korean Peoples Republic, communists, socialists, unionists and anyone against the the partition and demanding an independent Korea.4

1946-1949 -- The US in effect declares war on the popular movement of Korea south of the 38th Parallel and sets in motion a repressive campaign dismantling the Peoples' Committees and their supporters throughout the south, becoming massively homicidal as Rhee's special forces and secret police take the lives of some 100,000 men, women and children as documented recently by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission set up by the National Assembly of the Republic of (South) Korea in 2001. On the Island of Cheju alone, within a year, as many as 60,000 of its 300,000 residents are murdered, while another 40,000 fled by sea to nearby Japan some two years before the Koreans from the north invade the South.

1950, June 28 -- The US attacks by, air, sea and land, aiming at the southward invading army of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (North), which nevertheless unifies the peninsula in five short weeks (except for the US defended port city of Pusan); with little resistance from South Korea's ROK military as most of its soldiers either defect or go home; over the next three years US will commit dozens of high death toll documented atrocities (some recently apologized for) as American planes level to the ground almost every city and town of any appreciable size in the entire peninsula, north and south, in the end threatening to drop the atomic bomb, and be charged with germ warfare by some not easily dismissed sources.

1953-2013 -- The US using its control over international financial institutions and its power over the financial policies of most of the nations on Earth, keeps in place economy crippling sanctions and trade blockades (only loosening them slightly from time to time in attempts to halt the Democratic People's Republic of Korea production of nuclear weapons as it faces a US, constantly condemning it in intense belligerency, massively armed with ever new nuclear weapons. (US sanctions obviously violate Principle VI of the Nuremberg Principles of International Law, c. Crimes Against Humanity: "inhuman acts done against any civilian population.")
