Super patriot correspondents Sanger and Shanker bang the New York Times war promoting drum in their August 13th article, and would have their readers believe that the North Korean tail is wagging the U.S. dog.

U.S. Sees North Korea as Rattling Sabers for an Heir by David Sanger and Thom Shanker

Pentagon correspondent Shanker reports Bush-Obama Sec. of Defense, former CIA Director, Gates voicing suspicions "that it was the succession struggle ... that could explain the attack on a South Korean frigate ... the Cheonan sinking could turn out to be the first of several such attacks."

The Times goes on pushing the Obama administration's fantastic North Korean torpedo charge, as if China had not dismissed it as "not credible," as if the Russian Navy's own investigation had not determined it as caused by "friendly fire," as if a former foreign editor of the Japan Times had not, in a through investigative
report, given the information regarding a U.S. mine laying ship operating in joint maneuvers at the time, and as if the South Korean administration had not seen its candidate defeated in elections in Inchon soon after the sinking and blaming of the North. (The area of the sinking is within the territory of Inchon Prefecture)

The Times article goes on in tone as the voice of the Pentagon and investment bankers calculating their chances for further economic penetration and increased financial domination in the event of war:

"You hear all these theories about how Kim Jong-il is aggressively pressing for more attacks on South Korean targets, or maybe even striking out at its allies," said Jonathan Pollack, a professor at the Naval War College"

There never has been but one Korean nation! Ask any Korean.

It was one Korean nation when our colonialist President Wilson signed on to it being Japanese territory. It was one nation when the U.S. divided it after WW. II and set up an unpopular, undemocratic regime in the South, which set to murdering thousands of its citizens (recently thoroughly and extensively documented)

It was one nation when the members of the U.S. Congress posed for photo-opts in the trenches of the 38th parallel as proud anti-communists calling for an invasion of the North. It was one nation when the North surprise invaded, the U.S. trained Southern Army defecting or refusing to fight and the peninsula united in a couple of weeks, except for the city of Pusan protected by U.S. forces.

It was one nation when it was invaded by the United States and bombed to smithereens and again cut in half with the upper half protected at the cost of hundreds thousands of Chinese who gave their lives.

It was one nation during the economic boom under the long dictatorship of General Park in the South and the dire suffering in the North caused by the punishing world obeying economic sanctions on the North, under the dictatorship of Kim Il Sung, a former guerrilla leader against the Japanese.

It was one nation during the massacres of students in the South in the early 1980s for which the then General President would be later sentenced to death. And especially was it one nation when the people in the North suffered famine but kept themselves strong in the face of frightening superpower enmity.

For all the continuous efforts of Americans to punish the people of the North for their anti-imperialist, non-capitalist government, while applauding its huge communist party governed neighbor to the north for its cooperation, Korea remains one nation from the southern most island of Cheju to its border with China. A nation of people with a 4000 year history humiliated by nation with less than 250 years of cultural education, but lots and lots of guns and WMD.

Yours truly, who has lived in Korea, has authored previous OEN published articles seeking to defend us from the slings and arrows of outrageous imperialist propaganda about this vulnerable nation intentionally divided for the ultimate advantage of U.S investment bankers.

The previous OEN articles below contain some documented information that belies the New York Times projected caricature of monstrous Koreans in the north facing angelic American troops stationed in the south under the command of a Korea-loving government in Washington:

On the Need for Truth and Reconciliation Commissions in America, 4/17/09, synopsis:
In 2005, in keeping with its maturation as a constitutional democracy, the South Korean National Assembly established a Truth and Reconciliation Commission to seek to "reveal the truth behind civilian massacres during the Korean War and human rights abuses during the [South Korean] authoritarian period and recent evidence of U.S. and South Korean responsibility for the massacre of civilians before and during the Korean War."

U.S. Threat to Atom Bomb North Korea Never Forgotten, 5/27/09
On Nov. 30, 1950, President Truman at a press conference, remarked that the use of the atomic bomb was under active consideration. Koreans heard this as menacingly foreboding apocalypse, for U.S. forces were in retreat, and had suffered losses when China sent 'volunteer' forces to N. Korea 45 days earlier. North Korea going to great expense to acquire nuclear capability. Is memory of that U.S. threat to Nuke fueling paranoia?
