The Lyrics

Obama recently addressed a group of Korean War veterans and told them that the war was not a tie but a solid "win", comparing the prosperity of the South to the isolated North. This is nonsense. The US and Allies lost all territorial gains and were pushed back to the starting point, failed to use the A-bomb on the North as MacArthur (Supreme Commander) suggested, and failed to liberate the North from Communism- the primary objective. The first Cold War war ended in Communist victory and made the North's people suffer inhuman treatment for decades as N Korea is isolated. S Korea's democracy and economic prosperity is good but the two Koreas are still split and a state of war still exists not to mention the dreaded DMZ and threats of Kim Jong Un.
Korean War Vet’rans
“Died for a Tie” is discussed again
Forget about Pork Chop Hill, Heartbreak Ridge, Chosin
Pres Obama still thinks we achieved a “win”

Korean War Vet’rans
A loss of 36,000 men
All the gains lost to Communists- split nations
Pres Obama still thinks we achieved a “win”

Korean War Vet’rans
Kinda wish MacArthur had gotten his way
Nuked the North & friends (ChiComs)
But Truman insisted on another way
N Koreans paid, no liberation

“Died for a Tie” is discussed again
Forget about Pork Chop Hill, Heartbreak Ridge, Chosin
Pres Obama still thinks we achieved a “win”

Balances N Korean tyrant killings and imprisonment, starvation
To dynamic S Korean economic growth and democracy decision

But it still wasn’t a “win”*
* tell that to the S Korean people that have never heard of the fates of their family members trapped in the North and the hundreds of thousands that died in the war as Koreans.

Not possible to go for the big win once Red China intervened and especially once the stalemate started in September, 1951. The terrain was too favorable for the defense, The Chinese were too numerous and well trained and well armed with Soviet weapons. We couldn't have broken that stalemate if we were willing to sacrifice ten times the men

It's a bad sign when napalm fails to halt Chinese human wave attacks!!! The weather was bad and the terrain horrible. My dad was a US Marine before switching over to Govt Inspector and working with Intel. I get my encyclopedic military knowledge, 32 digit number memory, and semi-eidetic memory from my dad. I've known classified AND compartmentalized info as well as live walk-around aircraft knowledge for decades. Add blackcraft too and German Flugscheiben tech.
