Anyone who enters North Korea who doesn't have to is an idiot.
Dropping nuclear bombs on major North Korean cities was also LeMayâ€™s idea to force an end to the Korean War at its inception. His superiors demurred; such an attack would be too bloody, and cost too many civilian lives. In later years, LeMay recalled this with bitter irony. After China entered the war in late 1950, McArthur ordered strategic firebombing of North Korean industrial targets, most of which were located in heavily-populated cities. American aircraft dropped high explosives and napalm on North Korean urban areas, burning hundreds of thousands of Koreans. They also bombed irrigation dams, destroying North Korean agriculture, which resulted in widespread famine and massive civilian casualties.
"We went over there and fought the war and eventually burned down every town in North Korea anyway, someway or another, and some in South Korea too.â€¦ Over a period of three years or so, we killed off â€” what â€” twenty percent of the population of Korea as direct casualties of war, or from starvation and exposure?"
