North Korea and the US by Loretto on 23 June 2012 7:06pm
 
I just read this article on the AP website. Just imagine what other countries tell their young people about countries they perceive as being the enemy?

Nearly every country does it or has done it, or example these WW1 propaganda posters from the USA and Australia:

Hey ev, yes, you are right about every country spinning propaganda. My mother's first cousin was in the navy in WW2 and was off the coast of Hiroshima when the bomb dropped, suffered from skin cancer in later years too. The officers went into the city when they believed the radiation levels were safe enough to do so. Frank, my mom's first cousin, said that in school classrooms he saw world maps that made Japan look massive and America look small. Brainwashing the kids that Japan was the super power, and not the US. I heard this song from WW2 called Praise the Lord and Pass the Ammunition. Talk about proaganda!

Here's what 'The Lord' has to say on the topic:

“Do not take revenge on someone who wrongs you. If someone strikes you on the right cheek, turn to him the other also.”

“Love your enemies, and pray for those who persecute you.”
