UPDATE: Why the U.S. Military failed to finish the job in North Korea the during the first Korean War

 

According to Politico, all 100 members of the Senate chamber have been summoned to meet at the WH for a private briefing with Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Secretary of Defense James Mattis, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Joe Dunford, and Director of National Intelligence, Dan Coats on the situation involving North Korea.

 

 

To some, war looks inevitable with North Korea.

It would not be conventional requiring boots on the ground, it would use stealth bombers instead of conventional bombers, to deliver as many MOAB’s as it would take to wipe them off the map.

This job should have been completed during the original Korean War.

President Truman’s statement of June 27 illustrates his concern with communist aggression and expansion. In it, Truman argues that “communism has passed beyond the use of subversion to conquer independent nations and will now use armed invasion and war.”

Truman’s statement suggests that he believed the attack by North Korea had been part of a larger plan by communist China and, by extension, the Soviet Union.

 

The President believed that the Korean situation was like that of Greece in 1947.

He informed his advisors that he believed the invasion was “very obviously inspired by the Soviet Union.”

This gave America a moral imperative to act.

“If we don’t put up a fight now,” Truman observed to his staff, there was “no telling what they’ll do.”

His concern over the future of anticommunist governments in Asia showed in his public statement.

Truman pledged to defend Formosa (Taiwan) from attack and to support French forces in Indochina, a conflict that would eventually escalate into the Vietnam War.

Yet Truman had no wish to provoke a full-scale war with the Soviets. By blaming “communism” in the statement, as opposed to the Soviet Union, Dean Acheson later explained, the administration sought to give the Soviets a “graceful exit” and not provoke

In it, Truman argues that “communism has passed beyond the use of subversion to conquer independent nations and will now use armed invasion and war.”

Truman’s statement suggests that he believed the attack by North Korea had been part of a larger plan by communist China and, by extension, the Soviet Union.

The President believed that the Korean situation was similar to that of Greece in 1947.

Truman’s statement also reflected a new military order.

Although the United States took the lead in the Korean action, it did so under the rubric of the United Nations.

Truman made it clear that his actions fell within the measures recommended by the United Nations, and reminded “all members of the United Nations” to “consider carefully the consequences of this latest aggression in Korea” and that America “will continue to uphold the rule of law.”(Source)

It would have had the Chinese not sent in an overwhelming number of troops.

They came out of the hills near Unsan, North Korea, blowing bugles in the dying light of day on 1 November 1950, throwing grenades and firing their “burp” guns at the surprised American soldiers of the 8th Cavalry Regiment, 1st Cavalry Division.

Those who survived the initial assaults reported how shaken the spectacle of massed Chinese infantry had left them.

Thousands of Chinese had attacked from the north, northwest, and west against scattered U.S. and South Korean (Republic of Korea or ROK) units moving deep into North Korea.

The Chinese seemed to come out of nowhere as they swarmed around the flanks and over the defensive positions of the surprised United Nations (UN) troops.

Within hours the ROK 15th Regiment on the 8th Cavalry’s right flank collapsed, while the 1st and 2d Battalions of the 8th Cavalry fell back in disarray into the city of Unsan.

By morning, with their positions being overrun and their guns falling silent, the men of the 8th Cavalry tried to withdraw, but a Chinese roadblock to their rear forced them to abandon their artillery, and the men took to the hills in small groups.

Only a few scattered survivors made it back to tell their story.

The remaining battalion of the 8th Cavalry, the 3d, was hit early in the morning of 2 November with the same “human wave” assaults of bugle-blowing Chinese.

In the confusion, one company-size Chinese element was mistaken for South Koreans and allowed to pass a critical bridge near the battalion command post (CP).

Once over the bridge, the enemy commander blew his bugle, and the Chinese, throwing satchel charges and grenades, overran the Korean peninsula. (Source)

Whether or not for security reasons, no congressional staffers will be allowed in the members’ briefing.

 

Thus, we were left with the 38th parallel, the dividing line between North and South Korea as a participation trophy for another failed effort in another failed interventional adventure.

According to Politico, U.S. commercial satellite images indicated increased activity around North Korea’s nuclear test site, while Kim Jong-un has said that the country’s preparation for an ICBM launch is in its “final stage.”

 

Even a North Korean dog eater would crap in his pants one he found  James Mattis was on to his game. 

 

The USS Carl Vinson carrier strike group has been ordered to sail to waters off the Korean peninsula in response to mounting concern over the North’s nuclear activity.

In its usual bluster, North Korea said on Sunday it was ready to sink a U.S. aircraft carrier to demonstrate its military might.

WATERS SURROUNDING THE KOREAN PENINSULA, Republic of Korea

(March. 19, 2017)- U.S. Navy ships assigned to Commander, Task Force (CTF) 30 and CTF 70 are scheduled to begin a series of exercises with the Republic of Korea (ROK) Navy March 21, 2017 to strengthen maritime interoperability and tactics, techniques and procedures.

The U.S. routinely conducts CSG operations in the waters around the Republic of Korea to exercise maritime maneuvers, strengthen the U.S.-ROK alliance, and improve regional security.

Additional surface, subsurface, and air assets joining the bilateral exercise include  The USS Carl Vinson, Carrier Air Wing 2, Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyers USS Barry (DDG 52), USS Wayne E Meyer (DDG 108), USS McCampbell (DDG 85), USS Stethem (DDG 63), Los Angeles-class nuclear fast attack submarine USS Columbus (SSN 762), and P-3/P-8 Maritime Patrol and Reconnaissance Aircraft from Commander, Task Force 72.

Vinson deployed to the region under U.S. 3rd Fleet command and control, including beyond the international dateline, which previously divided operational areas of responsibility for 3rd and 7th Fleets.

Third Fleet operating forward offers additional options to the Pacific Fleet commander by leveraging the capabilities of 3rd and 7th Fleets.

This operational concept allows both numbered fleets to complement one another and provide the foundation of stability in the Indo-Asia-Pacific region.

The U.S. Navy maintains a presence in the Indo-Asia-Pacific to help preserve peace and security and further our partnerships with friends and allies.

Our forward presence contributes to freedom of navigation and lawful use of the sea, as well as furthers operational training and enables an exchange of culture, skills, and tactical knowledge.

 

I think this meeting may be a clear signal to Little Kim he’s pushed his luck, and about to find out he’s not dealing with appeasing push-overs like Bill Clinton or Barry Sortero.

THE END

I am firmly devoted to bringing you the truth and the stories that the mainstream media ignores. Together we can restore our constitutional republic to what the founding fathers envisioned and fight back against the progressive movement. Obama nearly destroyed our country economically, militarily coupled with his racism he set us further on the march to becoming a Socialist State. Now it's up to President Trump to restore America to prominence. Republicans who refuse to go along with most of his agenda RINOs must be forced to walk the plank, they are RINOs and little else.
