Pyongyang, January 30 (KCNA) — As was reported, a queer farce took place at a U.S. military base in South Korea.
According to the U.S. newspaper Stars and Stripes, hundreds of U.S. military policemen staged a training to put down a demonstration with the use of shields and clubs.
Mobilized in the training were some 40 katusas (Korean augmentation troops to the U.S. army), who played a role of “demonstrators,” chanting “U.S. forces, go home.”
The South Korean authorities are alleging that it is an “annual defence training.”
What is clear is that the U.S. troops present in South Korea have recently staged drills to suppress anti-American demonstrations of South Korean people and their scope is further expanding.
As is known, the withdrawal of the U.S. troops from South Korea is a prerequisite for peace on the Korean Peninsula.
Nevertheless, the United States has deceived the world opinion, claiming that its troops remain in South Korea because the South Korean people “want” it.
Particularly, it is these days trying to shelve the issue of withdrawing its troops from South Korea at the “four-way talks,” tenaciously resorting to its unwarrantable allegation.
The falsity and anachronistic nature of its allegation was fully revealed by the recent “training for putting down anti-American demonstration” staged by the U.S. troops.
Only a handful of flunkeyists and traitors want the continued presence of the U.S. troops in South Korea. But, an overwhelming majority of the South Korean people call for their immediate pullback from South Korea.
It would be reasonable for the United States to pull its fear-ridden troops out of south korea rather than bring ridicule upon itself by staging the “training to suppress anti-American demonstration” in defiance of calls of the times and the people.
It will also be a proper choice for its own prestige and interests.
