8 Weeks until Korean War commemoration


The JoongAng Ilbo recently published an editorial titled ‘Why don’t we realize we’re at war?’, written by senior columnist Moon Chang-keuk.

The headline is followed by the hook: “If we, as victims, vacillate, who will come to our aid? The response of the world depends on our next move.” Despite the fact that South Korea is currently in a state of national mourning for those who lost their lives in the sinking of the Cheonan naval corvette, Moon has no problem using the rhetoric of victimization to frame the conflict as a blatant act of aggression from North Korea.

The JoongAng Ilbo is one of the “big three” newspapers circulated in South Korea – and also one of the most politically conservative as well.

    War in Korea: Sixty years On

    The Korean War has never ended. On June 25, 2010 a memorial was held at the Korean War Memorial in Washington DC. But remembering war is more than about flowers and heroes. It was the blood of almost 3 million people and a state of war that lingers to today with no peace treaty. This film is to honor our Vets and all who fought or were impacted by the War with the push for a Peace agreement and tips on what you can do to make a difference.

    I’m glad this website is dying just like the North Korean system and Communism in general.
