The brutality of the Korean War made General MacArthur “vomit” (Video)

It is often called the forgotten war…

Having just been fired as commander of allied forces in Korea, a defiant Douglas MacArthur went before the US Congress and spoke of human suffering so horrifying that it caused the US General to vomit.

The general told members of the Senate Armed Services and Foreign Relations committees, “I have never seen such devastation.”

When MacArthur spoke those words in May 1951, the Korean War was less than a year old.

Casualties, he estimated, were already surpassing 1 million.

“I have seen, I guess, as much blood and disaster as any living man” he added, “and it just curdled my stomach.”

At that time, the General MacArthur was not yet six years removed from having presided over the atomic bomb strikes on Japan’s during World War II.

After three years of constant bombing at a rate of 50.000 tons of
Phosphorus (Napalm) a day three million civilians were immolated,
Millions more were injured maimed or disfigured for Life,every
Village town and city was destroyed. The bridges and reservoir
dams were destroyed drowning thousands. Americans know
Nothing of this slaughter,totally ignorant of the history and what
War crimes were committed in their name!!!.

Yep… and now we have the audacity as a nation to ‘stand by our allies’ as they threaten to do it again. Malcolm Turnbull be forced to stand before an Judicial Inquiry and justify his statement. We have been in Afghanistan for 15 FUCKING years; and Howard (Australian Prime Minister at the time) promised it was only going to be temporary. We are ‘accidentally’ bombing people fighting terrorists, and providing material support and assistance to terrorists in Syria at the behest of our ‘coalition partners’ because we are “Allies” … spending taxpayer money on attacking and destroying a nation that… Read more »

Napalm and phosphorous are two different incendiaries.

In it’s simplest form, napalm is jellified petrol – or even kerosene.

“US Defense Department brags about killing 1 million Koreans.” Not only them and not only Koreans. Whole of USAdistia and most of its citizens are proud of their sons and fathers killing and organizing the killing of 3d world ragheads. Even today it is very rare occurrence to encounter someone from US who understand evil his country did and is still doing in his name. But you know what, it is impossible for any man not to see it. So they devised a trick. Accuse whoever else but never ever themselves. It is deep state, it is banks, it is… Read more »
