South Koreans Should 'Rise Up' and End U.S. Alliance


Today is the 60th anniversary of the Korean War, which was triggered, as all American and South Korean schoolchildren are taught, by a North Korean invasion. But according to this article from the Korean Central News Agency of North Korea, it was the North that was attacked. According to the government mouthpiece, it's time for South Koreans to rise up and end the alliance with the 'U.S. imperialists.'

Pyongyang: The Central Committee of the Democratic Front for the Reunification of Korea, the National Peace Committee of Korea and the North Headquarters of the Nationwide Special Committee for Probing the Truth behind the Crimes of U.S. GIs, has issued a joint public statement in regard to the passing of six decades since U.S. imperialists provoked the Korean War.


The statement said that the last Korean War was a conflict of aggression ignited by the U.S., its satellite countries and south Korea, in order to stifle the young DPRK in its cradle and realize its wild ambition for global domination. This statement also noted that it was a war of massacre against the Korean nation that was unprecedented in the history of war, and went on:


[Editor's Note: Pyongyang refers to South Korea as "south Korea" - implying that South Korea is not the proper name of a nation.]


During the war, in wanton violation of international law, the U.S. imperialist ogres even used germ and chemical weapons on the Korean people and hatched a plot to drop an atomic bomb.


Due to the shuddering brutality of the U.S. imperialists and south Korean puppet forces, millions of innocent people met their deaths and the entire territory of the northern half of Korea was ruined to such an extent that not a single home or even intact brick could be found.


Branding the U.S. imperialists blood-thirsty murderers, heinous war fanatics and aggressors without parallel, the statement further said:



More than half a century has passed since the U.S. imperialists, with their knees bent before the army and people of the DPRK, signed the Korean Armistice Agreement. But since then, the U.S. has not only committed vicious moves to provoke a new war, it has stood in the way of inter-Korean relations and reunification. Furthermore, it has interfered with the internal affairs of the Korean nation and disturbed the process for improving relations.


Driven into a tight corner after being censured both inside and outside the country and pursuant to the hostile policy of the U.S., the Lee Myung Bak group of south Korea is working with bloodshot eyes to escalate the confrontation and provoke a war. It is, indeed, at the top of the class for being servant to war and a nuclear war accomplice to the United States.

There is only one way to foil the U.S. and the pro-American conservative group's scheme to escalate the confrontation and launch a war against the DPRK: the launching of a nationwide patriotic struggle. All Koreans with the blood and spirit of the nation should turn out with dignity and honor to make our enemies pay dearly for the blood that was shed by their fellow countrymen.


With determination, the entire Korean nation should foil the reckless and hostile policy of the U.S. toward the DPRK, holding high the banner of peace against the U.S. and war.


People in south Korea from all walks of life should rise up to put an end to the U.S. occupation and decisively break the shackles of the "alliance" with the U.S., an "alliance" for war that is leading the nation to ruin.


South Koreans should wage a resolute and merciless struggle to force the puppet conservative group to pay dearly for its treachery and once and for all bury these traitors in the graveyard of history.


Whoever stands for peace should opt for defending and implementing the June 15th North-South Joint Declaration.


All Koreans in the north, south and abroad should deeply cherish the mission they assumed and thus force the U.S. and Lee Myung Bak traitors to pay for the suffering and disaster brought upon the Korean nation. It is time for a turning point in achieving the patriotic cause of justice, peace and reunification.
