"Only Corporations Want War"

Is Hezbollah a corporation? Syria? Iran? More blameshifting from Hezbollah to capitalism, of all things. Islamic imperialism started this war, not corporation, not capitalism, not Bush, not the Easter bunny.

Hyuk Kyo Suh, representative from "Korean Americans Against War & Liberalization," complained from the podium that the US is threatening a new war against North Korea. "Peace in the Middle East and North Korea!" he shouted. "US out of Middle East and Korea!"

So what does Korea have to do with the Middle East? Nothing. However, ANSWER has to show something to Kim Jong Il to justify bankrolling them. And you can never have too many speakers castigating America. Of course, it goes without saying he turns the truth on its head by painting the US as the belligerent party in Korea, where North Korea refuses to agree to an end to the Korean War half a century after major hostilities ceased.

MISLEADING MISQUOTE:
A quote attributed to H.K. Suh is misquoted. He did not say "Peace in the Middle East and NORTH Korea" -- he said "Peace in the Middle East and KOREA." He pointed out a possibility of an outbreak of war in the Korean peninsula due to the ongoging tension there.
This misquote by this blogger seems intentional to misguide readers with his flawed reasoning.
You only have to watch C-SPAN clip to find out the exact phrase mentioned in this quote.

It is no intentional misquote. This is what I thought I heard and wrote down at the time in my notebook, though I admit note-taking does not document a speech perfectly. It's possible I'm wrong.
