  1. It’s pretty amazing that the atrocities, US casualties and overall destruction of the Korean War meets or exceeds the devastation of the Vietnam War but very few Americans understand the consequenses of US involvement…it’s the “forgotten war” for Americans though the Koreans certainly don’t feel that way. I recall that the commander of the US Air Force bragged that American bombing killed 20% of the Korean population – talk about success!
