The Korean War began 70 years ago, June 25, 1950. The coldest war in the Cold War never ended, settling into ceasefires and an armistice that never led to a peace treaty. This June 25, President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump went to the Korean War Memorial.
They laid a wreath, Taps was played, then they greeted the South Korean ambassador and his wife, the Secretary of Veterans Affairs, and a small group of Korean War veterans. While there were no handshakes, and distance was maintained in this outdoor setting, no one was covering their face and the old warriors sat and stood shoulder-to-shoulder.
This war, and its memorial, especially stick in the throats of the leftists who think their revolution is at hand in November. American men fought and died to halt Stalin and Mao’s vision of a solid Red Asia. We did stop the communists and we hold that ground to this day. Under our protection, South Korea became a free representative democracy with a flourishing people, in the starkest contrast to the vast slave kingdom to the north, one people under two systems of government side-by-side. That object lesson and the lesson of our moral goodness is poison to BLM, Antifa, and the “progressive” Democrats. Americans should be proud and should honor those who fought and those who died in our “Forgotten War.”Published in
