    —On this, the once again ‘mysteriously overlooked’ 60th Anniversary
    of the epically relevant Korean War —Hollywood’s rolling out yet another
    seen-to-death, anachronistic, PC WWII retread. A nifty moral alibi
    for an industry that’s made BILLIONS upon BILLIONS these past decades
    outsourcing cheap labor, and unflinchingly catering to the franhise-slum
    denial needs of history’s –MOST– awesomely genocidal regime —ACROSS
    the Pacific ( 70 million downed in ‘peacetime —decades AFTER WWII -unoutted
    and utterly unanswered for -FACT- ).

    Even as we’re trying to enjoy the set-up —a South Korean navy ship is
    blown up in international waters in the China Sea -near the Korean coast
    —killing 45 on board.

    The story was very marginally and deceptively reported, when it was reported
    at all, in our Red China suck-up ‘press’. It’s dropped altogether within
    a single day —even as authorities are now telling us it’s looking ‘likely’
    that it was, in fact, a torpedo!

    The Korean War –‘staggeringly’ relevant, —and STILL unfolding…

    NOW, back to your smoke n’ mirrors WWII side show entertainments.
