    I think that it is time to do away with, on Free Republic, the idea that French Soldiers aren’t very brave. I am a retired American Soldier so I don’t owe the French anything. I am currently reading a book about the Korean War (1950-1953). It is titled IN MORTAL COMBAT. I am at the point where China has entered the war. The Chinese have sent hundreds of thousands of Soldiers into Korea. The UN forces have been rocked. The South Koreans are falling back. The US troops are falling back. The English are falling back. The Turks are falling...

    South Korea's parliament has passed a bill to ban the launching of propaganda leaflets into North Korea, a move that was condemned by rights activists as a violation of freedom of speech. The new law carries a three-year prison term and fines of 30 million won ($36,000) for anyone found guilty Groups run by North Korean defectors and other campaigners have for decades sent anti-Pyongyang leaflets — alongside food, medicine, US$1 bills, mini radios and USB sticks containing South Korean news and dramas — into the North, usually by balloon or in bottles on border rivers. North Korea has long...
  • Ideas Behind Anti-Korean Prejudice Unchanged in 100 yrs: Japanese Author

    12/08/2020 9:50:31 PM PST · by nickcarraway · 11 replies
    The 1923 Great Kanto Earthquake that hit eastern Japan triggered massacres of Korean people, and it's clearly established that false claims were behind the acts. But in recent years, hate speech that outright rejects clear historical facts has become more widespread. For nonfiction author Naoki Kato, 53, the situation shows that "the same ideas of discrimination that existed 100 years ago remain today." The Mainichi Shimbun interviewed him to find out more about his view of the current situation. Mainichi Shimbun: As the author of "Trick: The people who want to deny the massacres of Korean people," (rough translation) what's...

    After Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-NY) got away with ignoring the US Supreme Court's rebuke of his violation of religious liberty, Gov. Gavin Newsom (D-Calif) has decided he, too, will ignore the Court. "I understand that the Court thinks they are doing the right thing, but let me point out that our Constitution is set up to protect life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness," the Governor recalled. "In this list life comes before liberty. In fact, without life there is no chance for liberty. By cracking down on church attendance I am saving the lives of millions of Californians. The sacrifice...

    By rejecting the RCEP membership, we have given China a free hand to integrate its economy with Asian nations. Maybe India should look West now The "Act East" policy, with a focus on an extended neighbourhood in the Asia-Pacific Region, has been the cornerstone of India's diplomacy in the current decade. While it was originally conceived as an economic initiative, in recent years, it has gained political, strategic and cultural dimensions, including the establishment of institutional mechanisms for dialogue and cooperation. India has upgraded its relations to a strategic partnership with Indonesia, Vietnam, Malaysia, Japan, the Republic of Korea, Australia,...

    IB Times ^ | 10/23/20
    Democratic candidate Joe Biden on Thursday denounced President Donald Trump for befriending North Korea's "thug" leader, likening his diplomacy to working with Hitler. In a sharp clash in their final presidential debate, Biden attacked Trump's insistence that he has avoided war through his summits with Kim Jong Un. "He's talked about his good buddy, who's a thug," Biden said of the young North Korean leader. "That's like saying we had a good relationship with Hitler before he invaded Europe -- the rest of Europe. Come on." But Biden indicated he was also willing to meet with Kim, saying his condition...

    Following the end on the 18th of October of the 13-year United Nations’ embargo on Iran buying or selling weapons, the roll-out of the military component of the 25-year deal between China and Iran will begin in November, as exclusively revealed by Oil Price.com.

    North Korea has warned its citizens to stay indoors over fears that "yellow dust" which blows in from China could bring coronavirus with it. The streets of the capital Pyongyang were reported to be virtually empty on Thursday following the warning. The secretive state claims to be coronavirus-free but has been on high alert since January with strict border closures and restrictions on movement. There is no known link between the seasonal dust clouds and Covid-19. However, they are not the only country to suggest a link. The BBC's Disinformation Team notes Turkmenistan also alleged virus-laden dust was the reason...

    SEOUL (Reuters) - North Korean leader Kim Jong Un appeared to shed tears at the weekend as he thanked citizens for their sacrifices, in the most striking demonstration yet of how he is relying on his "man of the people" persona to tackle his country's deepening crises. Though the young leader has consolidated his rule over the isolated nation with ruthless purges, North Korea watchers say he has also sought to portray himself as a more traditional political leader than his eccentric father, Kim Jong Il.

    Trump has reduced the U.S. military footprint abroad, choosing to punch hard while pulling back. The Islamic State’s so-called caliphate in the Middle East has been destroyed. Syria and Iran are on notice. The two biggest terrorist leaders alive when Trump took office, the Islamic State’s Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi and Iranian military commander Qasem Soleimani, are now dead. The United Arab Emirates and Bahrain have recently signed major diplomatic agreements with Israel, a breakthrough engineered by the Trump administration and the first such pact between the Jewish state and its Arab neighbors in 25 years. The president has focused the...

In a letter sent to South Korea's Blue House Friday morning, North Korea said units responded to a call that an unidentified male was found floating on an object in the sea. The letter claims about 10 rounds were fired at the man after he did not comply with a soldier's demand to identify himself and subsequent warning shots. North Korea says only a pool of...
