Thanks to Chris, American friend who gave me this link. Go there and read captions attached. War is full of horror, innocent suffer along with troops from all armies. Both sides killed prisoners, civilians were caught in ‘crossfires’ between the fighting. Some say ‘just stop fighting don’t make war’ but that is a stupid and ignorant thing to say. Warfare cannot be ‘just stopped’, and as long as mankind has existed they have fought. Unfortunately the only way to stop an army is to defeat it. Freedom must be fought for, it is not just given.
People must be killed that are taking away YOUR freedom, but many will never understand. Those in the Republic of Korea in their early 50’s and under, have absolutely NO IDEA of what happened here. Just look at the present day conditions of North Korea, that would be the same here, if THEY had won. Thank God that 22 United Nations sent troops and aid to help the South stay free. These are the facts.

Communists killed 400 Southerners. Many civilians died, caught in crossfires and 'friendly fire'. War is hell.
To remember the war, one must see the pictures and get a small idea of what happened. Even movies can NOT bring the total reality, there is nothing that can do that. These are only a sample of those posted on this site. Go and educate yourself.
