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
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
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
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
