The First Korean War In Photos: Chinese And US Make Ready

NORTH Korea has fires upon South Korea’s Yeonpyeong island. The talk is of “massive retaliation”. Two South Korean marines are dead. Are we on the verge of war a repeat of the 1950s? Will the US fight the Chinese? The nuclear-powered USS George Washington is heading to the region.

Before pictures from that bloody time – and the images are evocative and emotive – a look at what the North Korean news service is saying about matters:

THE Supreme Command of the Korean People’s Army Tuesday released the following communique: The south Korean puppet group perpetrated such reckless military provocation as firing dozens of shells inside the territorial waters of the DPRK side around Yonphyong Islet in the West Sea of Korea from 13:00 on Nov. 23 despite the repeated warnings of the DPRK while staging the war maneuvers for a war of aggression on it codenamed Hoguk, escalating the tension on the Korean Peninsula.

The above-said military provocation is part of its sinister attempt to defend the brigandish “northern limit line,” while frequently infiltrating its naval warships into the territorial waters of the DPRK side under the pretext of “intercepting fishing boats.” The revolutionary armed forces of the DPRK standing guard over the inviolable territorial waters of the country took such decisive military step as reacting to the military provocation of the puppet group with a prompt powerful physical strike. It is a traditional mode of counter-action of the army of the DPRK to counter the firing of the provocateurs with merciless strikes.

Should the south Korean puppet group dare intrude into the territorial waters of the DPRK even 0.001 mm, the revolutionary armed forces of the DPRK will unhesitatingly continue taking merciless military counter-actions against it. It should bear in mind the solemn warning of the revolutionary armed forces of the DPRK that they do not make an empty talk.

There is in the West Sea of Korea only the maritime military demarcation line set by the DPRK.

Remember when..? Around 100,000 British servicemen and women served in the Japan-Korea theatre during the war. British casualties: 1,078 killed; 2,674 wounded; 1,060 missing or taken prisoner.
