DFRK Exposes True Colors of U.S.-S. Korea Alliance

 Pyongyang, March 31 (KCNA) -- The Central Committee of the Democratic Front for the Reunification of Korea (DFRK) Tuesday released a memorandum showing the history and true colors of the U.S.-south Korea alliance as regards the fact that the south Korean puppet regime has gotten more hell-bent on sycophancy and treachery, confrontation with the fellow countrymen and anti-DPRK war moves while crying out for strengthened alliance with the U.S.
    Terming the U.S.-south Korea alliance a master-servant tie-up, an inequitable alliance based on subjugation and submission and a war alliance for carrying out the U.S. policy of aggression, the memorandum said:
    The U.S. imperialists landed in south Korea on September 8, 1945 to replace the Japanese imperialist aggressors defeated in the Second World War and then proclaimed their military administration, enforcing the colonial government-general rule through it.
    They staged the ruinous "separate elections" in May of 1948 and set up the Syngman Rhee puppet regime in August that year.
    After the emergence of the puppet regime, various "agreements" and "treaties" were concluded under the coercion and wire-pulling of the U.S., and they all were no more than nooses to colonialize south Korea as a whole in political, economic and military aspects.
    On August 24, 1948, the U.S. egged traitor Syngman Rhee on to sign the "status of forces agreement on tentative military affair and security in transitional period" in a bid to justify its military occupation system.
    Under this "agreement" the U.S. offered the puppet army huge munitions enough to arm tens of thousands of troops, many weapons seized from the defeated Japanese imperialists and U.S.-made warplanes and warships so as to make preparations for an aggression on the northern half of Korea.
    The U.S., which ignited the Korean War on June 25, 1950, cooked up an "agreement on jurisdiction over the U.S. forces in south Korea" in July to put the prerogative of the puppet army, including the right to command operation, under its control.
    Due to this "agreement" the south Korean puppet army was enrolled into the "UN forces" and the commander of the "UN forces" exercised full command over the puppet army.
    The U.S.-south Korea "mutual defense treaty" was officially signed in Washington on October 1, 1953. The "treaty" in its article 4 calls for conferring on the U.S. the right to deploy its three services in any part of south Korea. The article 6 stipulates the "treaty" as "indefinitely valid" so as to "justify" the U.S. forces' permanent presence in south Korea.
    The "treaty" is the worst unequal and shackling one, quite different from similar treaties the U.S. concluded with other countries, as it gives no restriction to the U.S. in reducing south Korea to its military bases, allowing its military presence for an indefinite period.
    The U.S. fabricated the U.S.-south Korea "agreed minutes", a supplementary agreement of the "mutual defense treaty", in November of 1954 and reaffirmed its permanent presence in south Korea.
    The U.S.-south Korea alliance has recorded the history of aggression, war, plunder and subjugation for the last seven decades since the U.S. imperialist aggressors' occupation of south Korea.
    After issuing the "joint statement" of the puppet regime and the "UN Command" in May, 1961, the U.S. stepped up the preparations for war of aggression against the DPRK by continuing to seize the right to command operations of the commander of the "UN forces" over the puppet army, investing a huge amount of funds for beefing up armed forces for aggression and intensifying war drills.
    On the strength of the alliance, the U.S. imperialists hurled troops of the south Korean puppet army, colonial mercenaries, as cannon fodder into shambles of wars of aggression, large and small, ignited by them in different parts of the world.
    On July 9, 1966 the U.S. faked up the SOFA, giving the U.S. imperialist aggressor forces in south Korea privileged position rare to be found in the world.
    On the strength of the humiliating SOFA the U.S. imperialist aggressors have made no scruple of perpetrating murder, rape, plunder, destruction and all other crimes in south Korea.
    In December, 1994 the U.S. staged a farce of transferring the peacetime operation control to the puppet forces but it was a crafty artifice to quell the people's anti-American sentiment and desire for independence and calm down the criticism at home and abroad of the U.S. military presence in south Korea and colonial domination over it.
    It declared transfer of OPECON in April, 2012 but installed a pro-U.S. conservative regime, instigating it to repeatedly extend the transfer.
    Through deceptive "aid" it strengthened the system of neo-colonialist domination over south Korean economy.
    In the mid-1960s the U.S. put the bulk of financial budget and banking funds of south Korea under its control and monopolized 70-80 percent of supply of raw materials and 80 percent of trade.
    The U.S. forced south Korea open its market, deepening economic infiltration into the latter and its dependence on the former.
    It cooked up the humiliating FTA, putting south Korea deep into colonial yoke.
    The south Korean puppet conservative group is making last-ditch efforts to prolong its despicable remaining days in reliance on the alliance with the U.S.
    What the present puppet regime has done so far since it came to power was the acts of making south Korea increasingly dependent on the U.S., crying out for tightened alliance with the U.S., and the ones of putting the inter-Korean relations into the worst catastrophe through cooperation in confrontation with the DPRK and moves to invade it.
    No matter how loudly the puppet group may advertise the U.S.-south Korea alliance, regarding it as its lifeline and kowtowing to the U.S., the U.S. considers the puppet forces as nothing but a colonial servant.
    As long as there exists the U.S.-south Korea alliance, the south Korean people can never free a miserable fate, the danger of a war can hardly be defused on the Korean peninsula and it is hard to expect either peace or the reunification of the country.
    The U.S.-south Korea alliance, shame on the nation and obstacle to peace and reunification, should be dissolved without delay, the memorandum demanded. -0
