News Analyst Sheds Light on U.S. Involvement in Successive "Presidential Elections" in S. Korea
Pyongyang, November 27 (KCNA) -- The U.S. was behind all the past "presidential elections" in south Korea.

The U.S. is now stretching out its dark tentacles to the 18th-term "presidential election" due in south Korea in coming December.

In the first half of this year experts on the Korean Peninsula issue and former high-ranking officials of the U.S. Center for Strategic and International Studies flew to south Korea where they met "presidential" candidates by turns and sounded their "outlook on the north".

On October 26 U.S. high-ranking diplomatic and security officials also flew to Seoul and examined "north Korea policy" pursued by the "presidential" candidates and their view on south Korea-U.S. relations and diplomatic policies with neighboring countries.

It is not secret that the U.S. was deeply involved in the fabrication of the Lee Myung Bak regime in 2007.

There were 17 "presidential elections" in south Korea so far but there was no single election in which the U.S. had not been involved.

It is a well known fact that after occupying south Korea after Korea's liberation in 1945, the U.S. orchestrated the "May 10 separate election" and let traitor Syngman Rhee hold the first puppet presidential post.

In the "presidential election" in May 1956 the U.S. prodded Syngman Rhee to poison Democratic Party candidate Sin Ik Hui as there was a sign of his winning in the election.

When Progressive Party leader Jo Pong Am won approval in over two million votes by committing himself to working for reunification against imperialists and fascists, the U.S. instigated the puppet forces to forcibly disband the Progressive Party and cruelly killed party officials including Jo Pong Am.

When right-wing politician Jo Pyong Ok ran for "presidential election" due on March 15, 1960 from the Democratic Party, the U.S. proposed to give him surgical "operation" for his illness at the U.S. army hospital and assassinated him.

When Syngman Rhee assumed power again under the backstage manipulation of the U.S., the south Koreans rose up in the massive anti-U.S. and anti-fascist resistance on April 19 the same year.

As the resistance toppled the Syngman Rhee puppet regime, the U.S. cried out for "democratic policy" by putting forward Jang Myon puppet Cabinet. But Jang was also a pro-U.S. element who followed the political career in the conservative opposition field under the active patronage of the CIA. The first item of the plan of eliminating Syngman Rhee worked out by the U.S. in May 1952 was to "promote Jang Myon to become next-term president", clear evidence proving what a great deal of importance the U.S. attached to Jang.

But Jang Myon "Cabinet" was just a bumper-like transitional regime that was faked up to benumb the fighting spirit against the U.S. and fascism that swept south Korea.

At that time the U.S. adopted it as its policy to introduce switchover from "civilian politics" to military politics in south Korea and induce it to make close adhesion with Japan.

The U.S. had in mind pro-Japanese traitor Park Chung Hee who turned into a die-hard pro-U.S. element under the control of the master.

The resultant May 16, 1961 military coup in south Korea helped Park to hold power as designed by the U.S.

The then Director of the CIA Dulles in his BBC appearance later described the "May 16 coup" as the biggest success during his office service overseas, an indication that the U.S. had been deeply involved in the military coup that promoted Park to the post of power.

It was again the U.S. which promoted traitor Chun Doo Hwan after Park was shot to death.

The actions against "yusin" dictatorship mounted in south Korea and serious discord and contradiction surfaced within the puppet regime. These forced the U.S. to plot the change of a new stooge for the stabilization of the colonial fascist rule.

According to the U.S. design, Park was shot to death by Director of the south Korean Central Intelligence Agency Kim Jae Gyu at a CIA restaurant on October 26, 1979. After the successful operation of eliminating Park, the U.S. engineered the "December 12 army purge coup" aimed at fabricating new Chun Doo Hwan military dictatorial regime. At night on December 12, 1979 under the field command of the U.S. forces commander in south Korea, Chun Doo Hwan, Roh Tae Woo and other military hooligans purged "yusin" dissident elements from the puppet army. The U.S. forced Choe Kyu Ha who was during his tenure of office to leave the post as "president" in August 1980 and provided back-stage manipulation to let the long legally defunct "people's congress for driving force of unification" worked out by Park appoint traitor Chun as "president".

The U.S. orchestrated the deceptive "presidential election" in February 1981, legitimizing the Chun Doo Hwan military fascist dictatorial regime.

The U.S. ran the whole gamut of intrigues for the election of traitor and murderer Roh Tae Woo who was identical to Chun Doo Hwan in the puppet presidential election in 1987.

When the south Koreans turned out in the massive actions for the democracy of the society in June 1987, the U.S. made Chun draft 8-point "measures for saving the situation" aimed at the "democratization" and let "presidential candidate" from Democratic Justice Party Roh Tae Woo make it public.

In the meantime, the U.S. put up the signboard of "democracy" and actively prodded several opposition party politicians to run for "presidency", claiming that anyone can run for "presidency". This was aimed to disperse the south Koreans' approval votes for the candidates from the opposition parties and ensure the upper-hand of ruling Democratic Justice Party in the "election".

With the help of this machination, traitor Roh Tae Woo could assume power with only 36 percent approval votes.

It was similarly unthinkable without the U.S. involvement that traitor Kim Young Sam won in the "presidential election" in 1992. Political prostitute Kim Young Sam evaded prison service under the patronage of the U.S. even though he had the career of years of involvement in "democratization" movement.

All facts prove that the U.S. was a master hand at machinations which mocked at the south Koreans' desire for independence and reunification while holding it sway over the south Korean political field throughout years.

South Korea turned into a colony totally dependent on the master and a political barren land without parallel due to the U.S. persistent machinations.

South Korean society's independent and democratic development and reunification of the country can never come as long as there is the U.S. intervention aimed to prolong the conservative regimes in south Korea.
