KCNA Commentary on Attempted Military Coup of Conservatives in S. Korea

Pyongyang, July 18 (KCNA) -- It was recently revealed in south Korea that the Defense Security Command planned a military coup in March last year with the impeachment of Park Geun Hye just ahead, arousing anger among people from all walks of life.

A document, worked out by the command at the instruction of Chongwadae at that time, deals with the action program for the military coup such as declaration of "garrison law" and "martial law" and the phased dispatch of troops and even a person to seize administrative and judicial system to cope with the massive struggle to be escalated in case of the rejection of the bill on the impeachment of Park Geun Hye.

This was an attempt at the barbarous armed suppression of peaceful candlelight demonstrators, a scheme for military coup. It fully betrays the reactionary nature of the Park Geun Hye group of traitors who left no stone unturned to keep the dictatorial rule and power.

In particular, the plan contained a proposal to justify their military coup under the pretext of "threat from the north", which shocks the public at home and abroad.

It is not a secret that all the successive conservative regimes found a way out in the fiction of "threat from the north" and resorted to a reckless campaign of "eliminating the forces following the north" whenever they were driven into a tight corner.

Typical of such examples are the May 16 Military Coup by traitor Park Chung-Hee who suppressed the just struggle of the people for independence, democracy and reunification at the point of bayonet, spreading the fiction of "threat of southward invasion" and "the north's involvement" and the Kwangju bloodbath by the Chun Doo Hwan military gangsters.

The south Korean people are shocked to think that had the plot of the Park Geun Hye group come true, the dark era of "yusin" dictatorship and the bloodbath would have been repeated and there would have been no such climate of peace and unity as today.

The reality clearly proves that the ghost of military coup and military dictatorship is never thrown into the grave of history but still hovers over the south Korean people, watching for a chance.

The conservatives, now at the deathbed, openly betray their ambition to come back to power so as to ruthlessly suppress the progressive forces.

The "Liberal Korea Party" riffraff are zealously defending the attempted military coup, claiming that "there is no trace of the coup" and it is the bounden duty of the military authorities to cope with possible contingency". Their last ditch-efforts bring to light their dirty colors as accomplice.

The military coup failed in the attempt but the conservative traitors never give it up.

South Koreans from all walks of life should fight it out for the liquidation of the deep-seated evils so as to ostracize the conservative group of traitors including the LKP at their last gasp.

They should preserve peace on the Korean peninsula by the concerted efforts of the nation. -
