Update: Hey guys wanted you all to know I contacted Kim Jong Un and he assured me that "Yodok" is an unsubstantiated conspiracy theory and does not exist; so all is fine. Please do some research before posting alarmist propaganda like this.

Sorry, my friend. I can't believe you.

Sorry, my friend. I can't believe you.

I will believe you when I see and hear you and him both making this statement during you guys' public press conference, with live broadcast.

On North Korea's SINGLE TV channel.

(which makes it so much easier to access "the news", there)

Not forgetting. Never will.

Be reassured, I'm not forgetting about those, either.

Never will.

Let's make sure ObaMARX's posterity (and Bush's) will never miss to be properly associated with it, and emphasized, in History.

I caught that

Amerika also tortures people. :C.

America has BEEN a country of my surprise

This was "News" to me


Amish history of World War I was another story. Americans were surprised when their country joined in the fray. President Wilson had promised that America would remain neutral “in name and in practice.”

Once America was in the war, the government started a propaganda campaign to whip up support for the war. Though it was generally successful, the campaign had little influence on the Amish.

Conscription was unpopular so there was no draft when America joined the war. But within months a conscription act was passed. The government recognized religious conscientious objectors but had no formal guidelines for handling them.

Amish pacifists were placed in with the regular ranks, given uniforms and expected to participate in drills. Unofficially, the military hoped that peer pressure and separation from their culture would cause the Amish to give up their non-violent ways and become fighters.

To be sure, this strategy was successful in some cases. But most Amish refused to participate. Many were jailed, beaten and subjected to verbal abuse. When they refused to wear the uniform, they might be placed naked in a cell for days at time.

Though there is no record of anyone being killed, this treatment must surly have reminded the men of the Amish history of martyred forefathers.

At home the Amish also had to deal with war fever. The Amish and Mennonites were labeled German sympathizers. Many thought that since they spoke German and would not fight or buy war bonds, it followed that they must want Germany to win the war.

This attitude was not to be tolerated by their war fevered neighbors. Two Mennonite meetinghouses were burned down and many others were vandalized. Since the Amish did not have meetinghouses, they avoided this fate.

Patriotic groups hounded the Mennonites and Amish for their lack of participation in the war effort. The government placed all German speaking pacifist sects on a watch list.

The Amish were difficult to watch since they had no centralized organization. Their tradition of home meetings thwarted the government much as it had done in Europe during early Amish history.

After World War I the Amish were looked on with suspicion by the outside world. Their image would not change until mid century.

thank you for that info.

I have a lot of respect for the Amish people but never knew about what you wrote. Thanks for sharing it.
