Letters | Korean War revisited

Wars can only end when people everywhere are free

I faithfully follow James Carroll’s column, and admire his determined quest for a world free of war. However, I sadly note that in his noble endeavor, his own political zealotry tends to undercut much of the message. His March 25 op-ed column “B-52s should remain historic relics” is a case in point.

He calls the American intervention to halt the 1950 Communist invasion of South Korea a “deadly mistake.” This claim will undoubtedly astound the millions of South Koreans now living in prosperity and freedom instead of a grim, militarized, and isolated prison camp.
