Biological war

Full article: Korean_War/Biological_warfare

In December 1951, the then US Secretary of Defense ordered early readiness for offensive use of biological weapons. [1]

The official consensus in China is that biological weapons created from an American-Japanese collaboration were used in the Korean war. The International Association of Democratic Lawyers (IADL) publicized these claims in its 1952 "Report on U.S. Crimes in Korea",[24] as did US journalist John W. Powell.[25] [2]

Moreover, US soldiers were publicly confessing to involvement in projects to use bioweapons.

The U.S. military and government laid charges of brainwashing in an effort to undermine confessions made by POWs to war crimes, including biological warfare. Scientific research into the topic of "brainwashing" that followed is tilted toward wartime propaganda to this day (2021).


The active war was concluded by a temporary cease fire, albeit one which lasted over 60 years. In 2018, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and South Korean President Moon Jae-in agreed to formally end the Korean war by the end of the year.[3]


Statistics vary widely about the number of killed and injured by the Korean War, but it is agreed to be in the millions.[4]

Bilderberg/1954“Americans saw that firm Western action in Persia, Berlin, and Korea had produced successful results and they therefore believed in continuing a firm policy.”1954
Bruce Cumings“The Korean War did not begin on June 25, 1950, much special pleading and argument to the contrary. If it did not begin then, Kim II Sung could not have "started" it then, either, but only at some earlier point. As we search backward for that point, we slowly grope toward the truth that civil wars do not start: they come. They originate in multiple causes, with blame enough to go around for everyone—and blame enough to include Americans who thoughtlessly divided Korea and then reestablished the colonial government machinery and the Koreans who served it. How many Koreans might still be alive had not that happened? Blame enough to include a Soviet Union likewise unconcerned with Korea's ancient integrity and determined to "build socialism" whether Koreans wanted their kind of system or not. How many Koreans might still be alive had that not happened? And then, as we peer inside Korea to inquire about Korean actions that might have avoided national division and fratricidal conflict, we get a long list indeed.”Bruce Cumings2005
