"Crisis in the Koreas" - "Truman & MacArthur" Author Explores Parallels to Korean War

East Northport, NY, December 08, 2010 --(PR.com)-- In an article to be published soon by the American History Club of America and the Korean War Veterans of America, Donald J. Farinacci, author of "Truman & MacArthur, Adversaries For A Common Cause," (Merriam Press, April 2010; merriam-press.com) finds stark parallels between the circumstances leading up to the beginning of the Korean War on June 25, 1950 and the recent provocations by North Korea directed at South Korea. In "Crisis in the Koreas: Chilling Parallels Between 2010 and 1950," Mr. Farinacci writes that "The killing by North Korea of 46 South Korean sailors in its March 2010 torpedo attack upon the Cheonan and four more South Koreans in its recent artillery attack upon Yeonpyeong Island evokes a sense of deja vu. Among many parallels, Mr. Farinacci traces the history of North Korea's aggressive actions against the South in the three years leading up to the 1950 invasion, including its commencement of a guerrilla war in South Korea in 1948, and compares them to similar hostilities by North Korea over the last several years, consisting of naval attacks, missiles fired over the Sea of Japan, nuclear testing and the outright attacks of 2010 upon a South Korean naval vessel and most recently, upon innocent civilians. The article is also being published by Mr. Farinacci's company, Scrivener Literary Productions.
