While the US military was invading and terrorizing the people of Korea in the early 1950s, the Korean and Chinese People’s Armies reached out to Black soldiers in the invading army: 

“Did you ever stop to think why you should be in Korea, fighting other colored people, while lynchings, murders and insults pile up against the Negro people at home?”

Half of Korea was already occupied by the US. And in the other half, carpet bombing campaigns killed millions of people, including Korean civilians and children. The Koreans however, under the leadership of comrade Kim Il Sung, never wavered in their commitment to revolutionary socialist internationalism. 

They spoke TO the Black soldiers, whom they understood were also oppressed by the white supremacist US invading force: “We are not trying to turn you against the white soldiers. They are in the same boat as you. They are sent here to be killed for the Big Money, for Big Business profits like you are. We think that you, having been oppressed, can understand this more quickly than they do. But many of them are beginning to understand it too. […] Americans, black and white, unite and fight for peace!

"The Chinese and Koreans are fighting for their own homes and borders. We didn’t come five thousand miles across the sea to fight. We didn’t come to America with guns and bombs and we never will. Don’t risk your lives here. Ask to go home where you can fight for your own rights as a human being. Leave us at peace in our homes here. 

“Your friends, The Korean People’s Army; The Chinese People’s Volunteers”

anonymous asked:

is this a weird question to ask?? but honestly, what are YOUR favorite types of fics? not your favorite actual fics since we already have a list for that, but the type? :)

Hmm… I really read anything and everything that captures my attention! I guess tend to gravitate to more contemporary works (“real life”) and canon divergence fics, but I also really like the royalty, fantasy, and action genres too! 

My favourite AUs are the different occupation (so anywhere from musicians to CEOs to florists… basically having any other job but skating!) and college/university AUs, but I also like a ton of other AUs, too! (Basically every list I’ve done is a AU that I like!) 

I am a sucker for domestic fluff, angst, and humor! Anything with cuddly victuuri living together melts me omg

Amoneki Followup

I really rushed this and I couldn’t make it work I’m so sorry @merry-the-cookie

Enjoy this anyways?

Kaneki’s apartment was cozy. Not big like Amon’s apartment, but it’s not cramped either. When kicking his shoes off at the door, he noticed a few pairs of woman’s shoes, and some tennis shoes that were to brightly colored for Kaneki’s personality.

Probably his roommates’.

Looking around the entry way into what looked like a living room Amon could see a somewhat cluttered living room. Though the scattered textbooks and art supplies suggested one of the occupants, Amon still couldn’t see the source of the loud crash before there was some yelling and hysterical laughter in the next room over.

Most of it was Kaneki’s voice sounding a little exasperated and two others laughing. Now, Amon liked to boast he wasn’t nosy, raised in a church and all, but in this instance he thought he might have to back up Kaneki on whatever his roommates were arguing with him about.

He has to earn brownie points somehow.

Walking in to the kitchen Amon was immediately surprised by two people, a) the department’s mailman, Hideyoshi Nagachika and b) Akira’s girlfriend Rize Kamishiro. Well that answers the earlier crash and the laughing hysterics and the messy apartment.

Individually Hide and Rise were both charming, easy to talk to, laid back and generally sociable. Together on the other hand they acted like frat boys causing both him and Shinohara headaches during office work hours.

“You guys! We were talking! Why’d you do that?” Kaneki was currently shaking Hide who was just laughing in response. Probably to the point he wouldn’t be able to respond in a few minutes.

Rize, who was still giggling behind her hand, gently stopped the shaking of Hide and pointed to Amon. Who, by the way, was still processing Kaneki’s roommates.

“Well we wanted to find out who you were crushing on so bad,” she stopped to collect herself a bit. “We just didn’t know you were dating the choir boy.”

Amon sputters almost indignantly, “I was only raised in a church!” His face is heating up at Mach speed.

This sends both of them into another laughing fit.

This causes Kaneki to huff, probably completely given up on them, and drag Amon out of the kitchen.

“Hey, I’m sorry about them,” he doesn’t meet Amon’s eyes. “They’re usually better behaved.”

Amon chuckled and nodded. “They both drop by around the office from time to time. I understand.”

God he was bad at diffusing situations.

“So… uh.”

A beat of silence passed.

“Do you wanna join us for movie night?” Kaneki was smiling now, which relieved Amon. “We’re watching Ghibli movies.”

“Sounds great.”

Do you like Doukyuusei?

If so, then here’s a PSA I needed and no one ever gave me.

There are TWO sequels, a spin-off and a film. I had no idea, and came across it by accident. So even though maybe everyone else in the world knows, I thought I’d tell you all.

Here are the links to Mangago, including the original story and a couple of other things starring these two. Reading all of them gives the full story, and it’s all just wonderful I’d recommend reading them in this order.

US has dropped what has been described as the largest non-nuclear bomb in the country’s arsenal on an area of eastern Afghanistan

The Pentagon said the strike was the first time the 21,000lb weapon had been used in combat operations.

A spokesperson for the US Department of Defence confirmed to The Independent that a MC-130 aircraft dropped a GBU-43 bomb at 7pm local time.

The weapon is known in the US Air Force by its nickname MOAB, or “mother of all bombs”. MOAB stands for massive ordinance air blast.
