KNOW THE FACTS: North Korea lost close to 30% of its population as a result of US bombings in the 1950s
KNOW THE FACTS: North Korea lost close to 30% of its population as a result of US bombings in the 1950s: "'After destroying North Korea's 78 cities and thousands of her villages, and killing countless numbers of her civilians, [General] LeMay remarked, 'Over a period of three years or so we killed off - what - twenty percent of the population.' It is now believed that the population north of the imposed 38th Parallel lost nearly a third its population of 8 - 9 million people during the 37-month long 'hot' war, 1950 - 1953, perhaps an unprecedented percentage of mortality suffered by one nation due to the belligerance of another.'"
