One man with evident integrity and unwilling to let the truth be buried is Dave Chaddock. His book is a superb exercise in historical rebuttal. The falsifications and lies and secrets propounded by the U.S. on the issue of its crimes has been going on for decades now. For instance, the U.S. populace did not learn of its government's post-war deal with Nazis, or its amnesty of the Japanese Imperial Army's Unit 731, until nearly 40 years had passed from the time of these events. If the book seems partisan at times, it is understandably the passion of someone outraged at what he has discovered -- just as many who have served in America's imperial wars returned home outraged, and too often broken, by what they had seen and endured.Read more ›
Here in our little U.S. bubble we've heard of a couple versions of a film called The Manchurian Candidate. We've heard of the general concept of "brainwashing" and may even associate it with something evil that the Chinese supposedly did to U.S. prisoners during the Korean War. And I'd be willing to bet that the majority of people who've heard of these things have at least a vague sense that they're bulls***.
If you didn't know, I'll break it to you right now: people cannot actually be programed like the Manchurian candidate, which was a work of fiction. There was never the slightest evidence that China or North Korea had done any such thing. And the CIA spent decades trying to do such a thing, and finally gave up.
I'd also be willing to bet that very few people know what it was that the U.S. government promoted the myth of "brainwashing" to cover up. During the Korean War, the United States bombed virtually all of North Korea and a good bit of the South, killing millions of people. It dropped massive quantities of Napalm. It bombed dams, bridges, villages, houses. This was all-out mass-slaughter. But there was something the U.S. government didn't want known, something deemed unethical in this genocidal madness.
It is well documented that the United States dropped on China and North Korea insects and feathers carrying anthrax, cholera, encephalitis, and bubonic plague. This was supposed to be a secret at the time, and the Chinese response of mass vaccinations and insect eradication probably contributed to the project's general failure (hundreds were killed, but not millions).Read more ›
Like Endicott and Hagerman, the author tributes the lack of concrete documentary evidence to the cover up by the U. S. government. They all fail to see that there is another possibility: what if there was really not a germ war in 1952?
In January 1998, a journalist from Japanese newspaper Sankei Shimbun published 12 documents acquired from Russian Presidential Archives that showed the alleged use of U. S. biological weapons in the Korean war was fabricated and fraudulent. Endicott and Hagerman replied that there was no proof of the authenticity of the documents since they were copied manually without any reference or index number, although several researchers considered them real after close examinations.
Fine. Those Russian documents were not perfect. Let's table them. But, how about Chinese documents?
In The Summary of Experiences about Logistics in the War of Resisting America and Assisting Korea: Health Service published by PLA in 1986, pp. 319 - 405, several telegrams, if looked closely, hinted that the Chinese medical experts and military authorities in the Korea front line could not even confirm the alleged cases and the political pressure forced them to keep quiet.
In late January 1952, some CPVA (Chinese People's Volunteer Army) front line units reported the discovery of flies and fleas in the snow. It was duly reported to CPVA headquarter, then all the way to Mao, Zedong in Beijing.Read more ›
