VP Mike Pence Receives Remains of Korean War Dead in Hawaii
— Open Blogger

The North Koreans do seem to be attempting a show of respect, if not the genuine article.



This is not everything, but it's also not nothing.

11 Negotiations as a series of improving measures obtained at low cost, as opposed to a single over-sold deal that dramatically underdelivers. Feeling good about the Trump negotiations at almost all points internationally. If the Iranians and Palis aren't very worried... they bloody should be.

Posted by: trev006 at July 27, 2018 11:34 AM (jji54)

12 But that does make it kind of glaring that Trump is about the only President to get the NorK's to give us back the bodies. 

Must be a fluke.  They were GOING to do that, but Obama was soooo busy saving everyone from everything he just didn't have time to take their calls offering to do it.

19 It looks like the GOP warmonger fuckholes passed a bill that prohibits military to military cooperation with Russia. Trump had signaled he wanted to work with Russia to solve the Syria crisis. You know the GOP sure likes to see Americans killed in pointless wars. Assholes.

25 Will the remains be verified and identified? Yes. There will be real forensics done in Hawaii.

26 I wonder if the military's MIA program has already taken DNA samples of all the families of missing soldiers. That could prove useful hundreds of years in the future when further remains are uncovered. Alos, maybe it should be standard practice to take DNA of new recruits for this same purpose.

35 Cavuto interviewed the daughter of one of our MIA.  Her dad was a pilot whose plane went down, and there were stories of the Soviets taking some of our POW's back to the USSR. 


She just wants to know if her dad died....or worse.

56 "This is not everything, but it's also not nothing." It actually is just about everything to a very large number of people. There are over 80,000 service members still listed as "Missing" since (and including) World War II. That's 80,000 families who received the worst news possible but have received closure. Even decades after a death in the military the identification of remains and their repatriation can finally allow a family to heal. Trump does this because he can and not for praise. It is something that will resonate with a huge number of people in America.

58 From the side bar about Lincoln: "Historically, Boritt shows that America had tariffs from Hamilton's time through the end of the 19th century, and it was during this period that America grew most rapidly and became the largest economy in the world, surpassing Great Britain." This is what I keep bringing up. The gilded era had an America funded by tariffs. If they are so evil and corrosive, why did it work so well in the past?

75 If trump gets impeached. pence becomes president. Does pence get to name a VP? I don't think he has to, though. And Ford was a pretty squishy Republican, very moderate, so he picked a similar VP. Although all things considered, he'd have been a better choice than Jimmy "stagflation, give away the Panama Canal, lose Iran, chased by bunnies" Carter in 1976.

86 What have we given the North Koreans so far in this?

So other than suspending what seems to now be mostly pointless military exercises have we given them anything?

I think you get voted on by house and senate. That is the impeachment process. I think its foggy on what some people mean when they say you have been impeached. Its a process, but it may not also mean you are convicted. I think Clinton went through the process on one charge. All the way to senate but the senate did not convict. If they convict they have another vote to see if the punishment should be that you are barred from holding office. Its not automatic. The other charges against Clinton never made it out of the house. I think. Its pretty confusing and people throw the term around meaning different stuff. I meant in the sense of him being kicked out of office. Sorry.

120 DanMan, Japan used Koreans in lots of roles, construction workers on their Pacific installations (as you mentioned, what became Henderson Field on Guadalcanal).   I think some of the very few survivors at Tarawa were Korean construction workers.


Also, in low-level military roles - camp guards, for example.  Many POWs dealt with Korean guards.  And the famous guy who was impressed into the Kwangtung Army (Manchukuo), who was captured by the Soviets and used in the Red Army, then captured by the Germans and ..... well, let's say he's probably the only legit case of someone serving in 3 separate armies, on different sides, in the war.

And for anyone wondering "wait, why would we ever be in a war with North Korea?", you're on the right track.  We've taken/are taking big steps to reduce our commitment to a true trip-wire sort, but in context the question is a good one.  NATO's a little bit more obvious (i.e. today's arrangement reflects almost entirely ancient history + inertia), but the burden in Korea as well is on the side of explaining "why?".

It's interesting in the redactions in it ("we left Base X ...") for security reasons, but also, from a personal perspective: my father read it before landing on Iwo Jima the following year.

So there are a few moving parts right now, not just Trump's influence. It is a rare moment in history.

244 Eromero, as I noted here once not long ago, think it was at Utah beach where all sorts of non-German "German" prisoners were being taken (surrendering quickly), German-speaking intel officers couldn't communicate with them, and finally a young soldier went to a more senior officer and asked "just who are we fighting here, sir??"  Koreans, some Central Asian former Red Army guys, probably accounted for the Asians.  But there was a smorgasbord of European non-German guys as well.  The Reich had a fair number of volunteers in their uniform, but lots of impressed people too.

246 223 I seem to remember orientals of dubious origin captured by the Allies at Normandy. They were finally identified by a Korean-American soldier as Korean slaves of the Japanese who somehow ended up captured by Russians, then Germans. They were in German uniform when captured by us. And boy, were they relieved. Posted by: Eromero at July 27, 2018 05:19 PM (zLDYs) True story: Mother's brother was a doctor stuck behind the Iron Curtain in Hungary. He actually trained NorK medics and doctors during the Korean war. Afterwards, he came back th Hungary and was about to leave when the Hungarian Revolution was crushed and he stayed there until 1961 when after literally being forced to leave all his possessions except the clothes on his back (much like California, Illinois and New York are plotting), he made it to the States. And he had to go through American medical school for several years to get retrained/certified. He was the last family member to be reunited with my mom and the rest. They were all deported in '44 to various camps. At least they all miraculously survived so 17 years apart is not so bad all things considered.

A plan to get laid, or listen to a new album, or eat some really tasty junk food and get really fat. ---- First time I tried it I was in High School (no pun intended).

In the Seattle area, there are licensed growers, who are the only legal growers.   They have a large list of state requirements.   Warehouse, with fencing, security cameras, etc.      You can be a few blocks away driving, with the window down, and it hits you.    If you have ever driven by a large commercial bakery when they are baking bread, and the fresh bread smell for blocks, it is like that.   

 

Except it is that overwhelming smell of growing MJ.     It isn't faint, instead it knocks one over with its intensity.

366 The remains of 55 American soldiers from North Korea is not a lot---but it's also not nothing. US troops got chased all the way south to the tip of the Korean Peninsual at Pusan in the first few months of the war. Things got better and we went almost all the way to the Yalu that winter. Then the ChiComs came. Thee were a lot of dead US soldiers and Marines littering the fields of North Korea. The Corps made it a point of honor to bring their dead back with them. The Army not so much. So 55 is a start, but there's a lot more where they came from. A late friend of mine managed to be both at Guadalcanal in the fall of 1942 and Chosin Reservoir in the winter of 1950 with a few island assaults sprinkled in between.
