Wow. I'm of two minds on this.
| Survivors said U.S. soldiers first forced them from nearby villages on July 25, 1950, and then stopped them in front of U.S. lines the next day, when they were attacked without warning by aircraft as hundreds sat atop a railroad embankment. Troops of the 7th Cavalry followed with ground fire as survivors took shelter under a railroad bridge. |
This passage makes it sound like troops deliberately forced these people into the open where they could be shot. Sounds pretty heinous to me. On the other hand, if there are masses of people rushing your line from the direction of the enemy, what recourse do you have? Can't exactly stop everyone and check passports. If it was, indeed, a deliberate massacre, then there should be some recourse for the aggrieved parties. If it is as it sounds, an unfortunate tragedy of war, let the dead rest in peace and the survivors move on and heal.
