US Forces in S. Korea Urged to Withdraw from It
| Pyongyang, July 9 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the North Headquarters of the Nationwide Special Committee for Probing the Truth behind the GIs' Crimes released a statement Saturday on the lapse of 45 years since the south Korean puppet forces signed the humiliating "Status of Forces Agreement" (SOFA) with the United States.
The agreement concluded on July 9, 1966 is a document of slavery of modern version as it legalizes the presence of the U.S. imperialist forces for aggression in south Korea and connives at their arbitrary practices and crimes and grants limitless privilege and status to them in trial of criminals, use of land and facilities, taxes, immigration control, etc., the statement said, and went on:
On the strength of this humiliating and unequal agreement the U.S. forces have committed all sorts of crimes including violence, plunder, murder and rape almost every day and lorded it over south Korea as a real ruler and extraterritorial entity for the last 45 years.
Still vivid in the memories of people are innumerable shuddering atrocities committed by the U.S. imperialist aggressor forces. Among them are the incident in Tongduchon where a woman's hair was shaved, stunning the world, murder of Yun Kum I, the drop of bombs over Maehyang-ri and their killing of two middle schoolgirls by driving an armored car over them.
The recently disclosed burial of defoliant by the U.S. imperialist forces is another tragic product of their presence in south Korea.
They have committed all sorts of crimes, occupying south Korea for several decades but have not been punished at all under SOFA. On the contrary, they have become more arrogant.
They are free from punishment even after south Koreans are killed with their grudge unsettled, looting their properties and devastating their land. There is nowhere to complain even when people are killed by GIs, the brutes. This is the reality of south Korea.
SOFA is an unprecedented document proving that south Korea is a colony of the U.S.
Its existence is a shame not only on the south Koreans but on all other Koreans as it is a slave document of modern version.
However, the Lee group of traitors is asking for the U.S. forces' permanent presence in south Korea while actively defending the agreement. It is offering the money collected from the people as taxes for the U.S. forces' upkeep while escalating confrontation with fellow countrymen as an executor of the U.S. aggression and war moves.
The Lee Myung Bak group's hideous sycophancy and treachery to serve the U.S. have lashed the nation into great fury.
The reality proves that the nation, to say nothing of the south Koreans, cannot escape pain and sufferings as long as SOFA and the U.S. imperialist aggression troops are allowed to remain in south Korea.
The shackling SOFA should be immediately abolished and the U.S. troops pulled out of south Korea as early as possible.
The south Koreans who value the dignity and sovereignty of the nation should turn out in the patriotic and sacred war to sweep away die-hard pro-U.S. traitor Lee and drive the U.S. forces out of south Korea.
