10 Most Rid*cul*us Lies North Koreans Are Made To Believe

10. The U.S. Started The Korean War

The Korean War is still to this day, a daily topic of conversation in North Korea and almost everything North Koreans have learned about the war is blatantly incorrect. They’re told that the U.S. started the war by occupying South Korea and then attacking the unsuspecting and peaceful country, North Korea. The U.S. then tried to take control of the North, but Kim Il-Sung heroically fought off the Americans and the Americans fell back in defeat. According to North Korean media, Americans continue to occupy South Korea to this day. Presently, North Koreans are constantly told that the U.S. is preparing to attack them and the press is constantly depicting South Korea as a suffering and American-occupied country that will shoot any North Koreans attempting to cross the border.
