Lee Myung Bak Group's Treachery under Fire
Pyongyang, July 7 (KCNA) -- The conservative authorities of south Korea recently agreed with the U.S. to extend the "transfer of wartime operation control (OPCON)" by the end of 2015. This is a product of conspiracy between the U.S., which seeks to carry into practice its strategy for domination over Korea by holding south Korea as its colonial military base for an indefinite period, and the Lee Myung Bak group, which is scheming to realize its design for invasion of the DPRK with the help of the U.S. while maintaining its power in return for selling out the dignity and interests of the south Korean people.

Rodong Sinmun says this in a signed article Wednesday.

The extension of OPCON has made it possible for the U.S. to intensify its political domination and subjugation over south Korea, and the south Korean people can not but undergo bitterer sufferings and sacrifice, being reduced to slaves and playthings of aggressor forces without any hope for restoration of the sovereignty, the article notes, and goes on to say:

The south Korean conservative group persistently begged for the extension of OPCON of their own accord and, accordingly, the U.S. has got justification to strengthen its policy for military occupation and colonial rule over south Korea. Needless to say, the U.S., which pretended to reluctantly accept such request, will demand the high price for it. This resulted in putting the people of south Korea under heavier yoke of domination and subjugation by the U.S.

Through the extension of OPCON the Lee group more clearly revealed its true colors as vile traitor and despicable pro-American stooge as it did not feel the pricks of conscience even in the least though selling out the dignity and sovereignty of the south Korean people to its U.S. master lock, stock and barrel.
