Korean War History Lesson



On two trips to South Korea I met a survivor of this US Army slaughter and he took our group to this bridge.

The orders came down from Washington to the US Army commanders during the Korean War to "kill everything that moves."

US war planes bombed the long line of civilians running for safety and many ran inside of the bridge tunnel at No Gun Ri.  US Army units from the 7th Cavalry used small and heavy arms fire to shoot people inside the tunnels as they crawled out trying to find water.  It was a slaughter.

Few in America know these stories about the Korean War.

"an unfortunate accident" would be like somebody losing control of his vehicle and striking something or somebody as a result and usually the accidental part takes about a second. Backing the car up and ramming it into the victim or object, repeatedly, that pretty much negates any claim of "accidental"

Of course it was the 7th cavalry. Criticize them here (Colorado) and some fanatics will give you death threats. Doesn't matter to me.
"they" have cute little nicknames for Natives, like wagon-burners, Prairie-N#####rs, and from there they can get nasty and disrespectful.
