For Cass, Tripwire, other Korea War veteran of SOCNET especially

A fascinating analysis, now unclassified. Written by US Intelligence man.

Respectfully,
Very interesting stuff, Johan. I knew that Tito had always been a thorn in Stalin's side but didn't realize how close it came to all out war.

Well, I am not sure. Even up to today I am not convinced that we saved South Korea.

I did 3 combat tours during that time zone and to me at the time the "Bravado" of war masked out the actual cost in American lives that a "Draw" with an enemy required. I still miss the fervor and passion of a wartime Team, but offering up American lives to keep the fires of war alive is far too costly.

And my total career(s) experience has magnified my stance against wars where American lives are to be sacrificed in the name of being the Savior of all peoples whether the saved ones offer appreciation or no recognition what so ever. All wars that America has participated in within current years has cost American lives and followed thereto with a Marshal Plan like WWII where America supported and aided rebuilding the nations/countries that were at one time bound to destroy America.

Yes, but he watches over us.

And I am certain he still reads SOCNET.
