To the Editor:
Let me open with two quotes from Gen. Douglas MacArthur talking about the Korean War.
“Up to now I had been engaged in warfare as it had been conducted through the ages – to fight to win. But I could see that the Korean War was developing into something quite different.”
“In war there is no substitute for victory. A great nation which enters upon war and does not see it through to victory will ultimately suffer all the consequences of defeat.”
If Harry Truman had not prevented MacArthur from gaining total victory in the Korean War, there would not be a North Korea today.
So our worst president is not Donald Trump, not Barack Obama, not Bill Clinton, not George Bush. Our worst president was Harry Truman.
