Pyongyang, March 16 (KCNA) — It entirely conforms with the desire of the people for progress, reform and independent reunification and the trend of the times to investigate and judge the criminal atrocities of the past dictatorial regimes from fresh angle and set right history in south Korea.
Rodong Sinmun says this in a signed article Thursday.
In order to put an end to the history of the foreign forcesf occupation and domination over south Korea, pave the way for independent development and step up progress, reform and the cause of national reunification, it is imperative, first of all, to settle the past crimes committed by the ancestors of the Grand National Party, the article notes, and goes on:
The successive fascist dictators of south Korea concealed behind the dark curtain of history their unethical crimes of having bestially killed and punished those patriotic youths and students and people who turned out in the struggle for independence against foreign forces, for democracy against dictatorship and for national reunification and turned the whole land of south Korea into a ground of strangulating patriotism with the active support and backing of the United States. The gentries of the GNP, descendants of the successive fascist dictators, are getting frantic in their moves to revive the period of the past fascist dictatorship with a lust for power, far from apologizing to the nation and quitting the political arena.
If the past history of treacheries is left intact and the criminals remain unpunished, it would be impossible to prevent the repetition of the crime-woven history, to say nothing of the advance of the times.
The pro-U.S. conservative forces including the GNP are the main target of the struggle to “liquidate the past history” in south Korea. The GNP group and conservative media in conspiracy with them are dead set against the struggle of the progressives for reform and other people to “liquidate the past history”.
The reality shows that only when the south Korean people spearhead their struggle to the GNP and smash the challenges and obstructive moves of the pro-U.S. conservative forces can they clearly liquidate the past history of crimes and realize their desire for independence, democracy and reunification.
The south Korean people from all walks of life should continue to wage a dynamic struggle to “liquidate the past history” to the end in order to deal a sledge-hammer blow at the GNP, a mass of crimes, build an independent and democratic new society and put spurs to the movement for national reunification.
