The Real Culprit of the Kwangju Massacre !-special article

35 year ago the south Korean puppet army killed 5,000 people and injured 14,000 in the south Korean city of Kwangju . Here the residents had organised protests against the military fascist dictatorship of Chun Du Hwan . These protests quickly turned into an uprising against the military dictatorship and were forcibly put down by the south Korean military .
Now the question is who was behind the south Korean military fascists ? Official histories do not deny the Kwangju massacre but attempt to put the blame on extreme elements within the south Korean miitary and also downplay the casualty figures . Some try to pretend that the US had no role in the Kwangju massacre . Nothing could be further from the truth .
At the time the US held peacetime operational command over the south Korean puppet army , it could not move without the say so of the US commander in south Korea . Moreover the then south Korean miliary ruler Chun Do Hwan had been trained in the US and had also fought in the Vietnam war . He was a special agent of the US CIA.
A special meeting was held at the White House on the 22nd of May 1980 attended by Edmund Muskie, Warren Christopher ,Zbigniew Brzezinski and Donald Gregg amongst others . It was decided here that the Kwangju uprising should be suppressed.
On the 22nd of May 1980 US commander in south Korea general Wickham gave the green light for the south Korean armed forces to suppress the Kwangju uprising by force. US president Jimmy Carter said that security concerns must override human rights .
The US also sent the warship USS Coral Sea to south Korea to be on standby to assist the south Korean armed forces in the suppression of the Kwangju massacre.
Thus the US imperialists are the true author of the Kwangju massacre. US imperialism has the blood of 5,000 south Koreans on its hands!
