S. Korea's Moves to Tighten Military Nexus with Japan Assailed
| Pyongyang, August 2 (KCNA) -- South Korea's moves to tighten the military nexus with Japan come under fire by bylined commentaries of papers here Thursday.
The Lee Myung Bak group rushed the GSOMIA through "a Cabinet meeting" behind closed doors only to trigger off strong domestic and foreign criticism and popular resistance. It was, therefore, compelled to declare that its signing would be put off. It is now busy running the whole gamut of absurd pretexts, claiming it was to "cope with the threat of the north's nukes and missiles" and "the agreement was good in its contents but there were only procedural matters."
Rodong Sinmun observes in this regard:
What the Lee group is doing represents the treachery of the pro-Japanese lackeys in the 21st century as it was nothing but a revelation of its black-hearted intention to calm down the angry south Koreans and ink the agreement at any cost, watching for a chance.
Any military nexus with foreign forces amounts to a grave challenge and an act of aggression against the DPRK.
Japan's ambition to stage a comeback to Korea has gone beyond the tolerance limit since Lee came to power.
The Japanese imperialists invaded Korea under the plea of "rescuing" Japanese residents a century ago. Japan seeks to repeat the same crime under the same pretext.
The Lee group is set to conclude the agreement with the Japanese reactionaries keen to reinvade Korea, shamelessly justifying its history of colonial domination woven with all sorts of unethical crimes and working hard to grab Tok Islets. This treachery is little short of paving the way for Japan's comeback to Korea.
What merits a more serious attention is that the south Korean regime's moves are being pushed forward as part of the scenario for knocking into shape the "triangular military alliance" aimed at invading the north under the backstage manipulation of the U.S.
If Lee and the "Saenuri Party", the most faithful pro-U.S. and pro-Japanese lackeys, are allowed to sign the agreement, it will be clear that the Korean Peninsula is bound to turn into a theatre of scramble for influence among foreign forces and the Korean nation will fall victim to them just as what happened early in the 20th century.
The conclusion of the agreement should be cancelled at once.
Minju Joson calls upon all fellow countrymen to turn out as one in the struggle to wipe out the pro-Japanese lackeys keen to hurt the dignity of the nation and turn the peninsula into a war theater of foreign forces.
