A Study on Apology: No Gun Ri
A Study on Apology: No Gun Ri

In 1950, U.S. troops fighting the Korean War committed a gruesome war crime against 400 South Korean civilians. The residents of No Gun Ri, a small town in South Korea, were accused of housing Communist infiltrators and were thus forced to evacuate their town. The U.S. soldiers then fired on the unsuspecting civilians without permission or evidence. The case has been covered up by American military intelligence, but the families of the victims have brought the case to light and now demand an official apology from the U.S. government. This paper explores the intricacies of official state apologies and how they relate to this particular crime at No Gun Ri.
