HUMAN first, then a proud IRANIAN

This blog represents the way I see some of the most significant events impacting the world and its citizens. This blog also represents how I react to the events as a member of humanity with a voice, a determined voice that insists to be heard. The voice of an Iranian who loves his country but his priority is humanity; humanity without border. I will say what I want to say, when I want to say it, and how I want to say it, but I will never lie. I will also listen; I promise.

Korean war: One more chapter of US's dark track record

Six years after declaring the U.S. killing of Korean War refugees at No Gun Ri was "not deliberate," the U.S. Army has acknowledged it found – but did not divulge –that a high-level document said the U.S. military had a policy of shooting approaching civilians in South Korea.

The document, a letter from the U.S. ambassador in South Korea to the State Department in Washington, is dated the same day in 1950 when U.S. troops began the No Gun Ri shootings, in which survivors say hundreds, mostly women and children, were killed.

Exclusion of the embassy letter from the army's 2001 investigative report is the most significant among numerous omissions of documents and testimony pointing to a policy of firing on refugee groups – according to undisclosed evidence uncovered by Associated Press.

South Korean petitioners say hundreds more refugees died later in 1950 as a result of the U.S. practice. The Seoul government is investigating one such large-scale killing, of refugees stranded on a beach, newly confirmed via U.S. archives

Iran, Chili, Vietnam, Cuba, Korea, Granada and... you name it... and now, Iraq. What part of the world has been ammuned from US's aggressions? These may be things of the past and present but let's hope for the end of it and not repeat of them in the future.
