KCNA Commentary Urges S. Korean Regime Not to Depend on Outsiders

Pyongyang, June 26 (KCNA) — The south Korean authorities are now noisily trumpeting about “strengthened alliance with the U.S.”

They talked about “solid south Korea-U.S. alliance”, “establishment of foundation for further boosting the alliance” and the like, when meeting the U.S. undersecretary of State for Political Affairs who visited south Korea recently.
Even the chief executive of south Korea appeared at an interview with U.S. media, where he called for “strengthening the south Korea-U.S. cooperation in key issues like policy toward the north and the bilateral friendly and cooperative relations.” The Foreign Ministry of south Korea is busy flattering the U.S., asserting “south Korea-U.S. alliance is the keynote of south Korea’s diplomacy and security.”
The south Korea-U.S. alliance is just disgraceful master-servant relations characterized by domination and subjugation, arbitrariness and servility.
“Boosting south Korea-U.S. alliance” just means deepening south Korea’s dependence on the U.S. and the structure of subjugation.
In actuality, the U.S. is forcing south Korea to introduce trouble-making THAAD and even pay for its operation under the pretext of “enhancing the missile defense capability of the U.S.-south Korea alliance” and “decision made between allies.” It is also pressurizing south Korea to pay more for “the upkeep of the GIs” present in south Korea, even threatening to “break alliance.”
The U.S. is getting frantic with north-targeted nuclear war drills under the pretext of “defending its ally”, only to bring a nuclear disaster to the Korean people.
The strengthening of alliance where south Korea should be further subordinated to the U.S. as its colony means sacrificing not only politics and economy of south Korea but also vital rights of its people for the U.S. imperialists’ scenario for a nuclear war and leaving the issue of national reunification, the cherished desire of all Koreans, to tender mercy of outsiders.
It is just a betrayal against the candlelight demonstrators aspiring after independence, democracy and reunification that the present regime of south Korea persistently resorts to “alliance with the U.S.”
If the regime fails to drop the anachronistic policy of depending on outsiders, it will never be able to avoid the miserable end like the Park Geun Hye group of traitors which was thrown into the garbage ground of history after being forsaken by the public.
“Boosting alliance with the U.S.” will only boomerang on the regime.
