TV: “Korea: A History of U.S. Intervention”

Although Korea is in the news, most Americans do not know the real history.

In the early 1950s the U.S. fought a bloody war in Korea.  No peace treaty was ever signed — just a ceasefire.

The U.S. military has been based in South Korea ever since the early 1950s, and the U.S. has been persistently threatening war — including nuclear war — against North Korea.

What history led us up to the Korean War? What has been happening since?  Neither our politicians nor our mainstream news media have told the truth to the American people, so the Olympia Fellowship of Reconciliation’s November 2007 TV program rose to the challenge.

Our guest is Larry Kerschner.  Larry served in the U.S. army in Vietnam. He is active in Veterans for Peace and in the Fellowship of Reconciliation. At the time of our interview he was self-employed as a medical professional in Lewis County WA.

Larry and other members of Veterans for Peace went to Korea to learn more and to support peace activists there, including farmers who are trying to protect their farm land from being swallowed up by yet another expansion of U.S. military bases.

This fascinating interview shares information that almost no Americans know.
