Abstract

The Korean war shows that our rulers are leading us along the road to national defeat and disaster. It was a series of blunders by the United States government which set the stage for the war in the first place. On various occasions high-placed officials indicated that the United States did not consider Korea to be a strategically important or defensible area; but at the very same time our government established, and allowed its own prestige to become tied up with, an incredibly weak and corrupt regime in South Korea.
