New University of Edinburgh-Based Study Provides Another Significant Rebuttal

The explanatory Commentary and Editorial published in Cortex on October 9 and 13, 2018, is timely, given that the U.S. has, for quite some time, been ratcheting up its rhetoric against Cuba.

The U.S. has desperately attempted to find pretexts to provide a basis for the alleged sonic attacks, for which the U.S. State Department directly or indirectly blames Cuba.

Imagine a country where a royal family spends billions of dollars on US and UK weaponry in order to increase their domestic and regional hegemony, engaging in a brutal regime change wars by force by bombing its neighbors, as well as funding and arming radical Wahhabi terrorists throughout the Middle East, particularly in Syria, along with killing and beheading hundreds of its own citizens and activists.

However, these military setbacks are not the sole reason to forget the Korean War. There is a much darker denial at work in forgetting the specifics of history, and this unwillingness to honestly examine the Korean War is at the root of our ongoing conflict with North Korea.
