Pyongyang, October 14 (KCNA) -- Indian scholar Kumar Gupta posted an article titled "The U.S. in agony on two histories" on the 4th Media, a website of China, on Oct. 10.
The article said:
The United States is seriously agonized by two histories. One is its
failure in the Korean War (25.6.1950 – 27.7.1953) and another is north
Korea's manufacture and possession of nuclear. In an attempt to
alleviate the said agony, the U.S. is describing its defeat in the
Korean War as victory and the north Korean nuclear as illegal. But, such
behavior of the U.S. is causing deterioration of the agony and greater
Is it "National Humiliation Day" or "Victory Day"?
It was none other than the U.S., the loser of the Korean War, who
most actively recognized the victory of north Korea and the defeat of
the U.S. and south Korea in the Korean War.
The U.S. had declared that they would "complete the Korean War" in
72 hours and then would invade China. But, they were terribly defeated
in the War and crystal clearly admitted their defeat after suffering
such huge amounts of losses that were more than 2 times the total losses
made in their 5 Great Wars --- Independence War, War in 1812, Mexican
War, U.S.-Spanish War and Philippine War (the "US News and World
On 27.7.1953, Mr Clark, Commander-in-Chief of the U.S. Far East Army
and UN Army, signed the Armistice Agreement, the surrender document,
and officially declared defeat and surrender of the U.S. and south
Korean side saying "A war without victory - this is the first misfortune
ever in history of the United States."
The U.S. and the south Korean "government" were allowed to sign the
surrender document after cession to north Korea of the huge granary
areas in Kaesong, Ongjin, Paechon and Yonan that had been located in the
south from the pre-War Military Demarcation Line at 38°line. This
serves as another evidence of the surrender of the U.S. in the War.
Upon return home, Mr Clark shed tears in two streams over the cheeks
at the airport (his mother's remembrance) and in 1954 he was dismissed
from office on responsibility for the defeat in the Korean War.
The U.S. magazine "Time" described the defeat of the U.S. in the War
as the "worst defeat." Other U.S. publications, too, reported, "The
United States has fallen to lamentation because the U.S. has been
defeated in the War."
There is another evidence that shows the U.S. admittance of the
terrible defeat in the Korean War: the U.S. Government dismissed or
changed all the political and military leaders on charges of incessant
defeats during the War. During this War, the United States changed its
President from Truman to Eisenhower; changed the Commander-in-Chief of
the U.S. Far East Army and UN Army, from MacOther to Ridgeway and from
Ridgeway to Clark; and changed the commander of the U.S. 8th army corps,
too, for 5 times.
A U.S. Congressman said, "In the 1950s and 1960s, members of the
House of Representatives and the Senate often said 'In order to restore
the defeat of the U.S. in the Korean War…' in their speeches. But it is
regret that nowadays the word 'defeat' is changed to 'victory'."
After the War, the south Korean "government" officially proclaimed
nomination of the date of surrender (27.7.1953) as National Humiliation
Day, meaning the day when the nation was humiliated by defeat in the
Korean War. For tens of years thereafter, the National Humiliation Day
has been met every year as an occasion to learn a "lesson" from their
defeat in the Korean War. This was so much official and loud that the
word "National Humiliation Day" is exhibited as such in many south
By the way, after some decades from close of the War, to the
surprise of the world the U.S. and south Korean "government" suddenly
mutated and saying that it is a "forgotten victory", started to
commemorate the National Humiliation Day as a "victory day". This year,
for example, south Korea conducted such strange processions as "Ceremony
of victory of operation of disembarkation to Inchon" and "Commemoration
of the battle in the region of the River Rakdong".
As everybody knows, in many museums and all archives of the world,
there are tremendous piles of evidences of the defeat of the U.S. in the
Korean War. Even in the event that they had all been burnt out, nobody
would dare convert the self-proclaimed National Humiliation Day to a
"victory day" because it would be a humiliation to the defeated, too.
But, the United States is doing so surpassing whatever imaginations of
As a USA proverb goes, "Losing money is losing small, losing friends
is losing great and losing people is losing all." By frauding the
world-known and self-proclaimed history of their own, the United States
is losing all of the three: money, friends and people.
Is it nuclear non-proliferation or nuclear non-manufacture?
The United States is persisting that north Korea's manufacture of
nuclear weapons is a violation of Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty
(NPT). The contradictory character of this insistence gets bare clearer
as time goes by.
This Treaty is exactly a nuclear non-proliferation treaty as its
linguistic meaning goes, but not a nuclear non-manufacturing treaty.
Therefore, the main clauses thereof read that the nuclear powers should
refrain from nuclear proliferation and nuclear threatening.
Of course, this Treaty also prohibits the non-nuclear nations from
receipt of nuclear technology and from manufacture and possession of
nuclear weapons. But these clauses are subsidiary to the said main
Therefore, if a nuclear power stubbornly threatened another nation
by nuclear in violation of the main clauses of NPT and simultaneously
sued the victim for violation of the subsidiary clauses of NPT, it would
be an excessively ridiculous phenomenon both legally and logically.
Anyway, what is more important is that there is no law in the world
which reads that even in case a non-nuclear nation is kept under
constant nuclear threats by a nuclear power, the nation should still
remain without nuclear.
The Unites States, the greatest nuclear power, has been for tens of
years incessantly imposing nuclear threats on north Korea in terrible
violation of the NPT. Under such exclusive situation, north Korea
quitted the NPT adoring the international laws and then developed the
nuclear weapons, thereby deterring war and safeguarding the world peace.
But, the United States demands north Korea's "nuclear abandonment
first", and north Korea demands the U.S. abandonment of its antagonistic
policy against north Korea.
Who is right?
The north Korea's "nuclear abandonment first" demanded by the U.S.
means break of war of Iraqi war type, while the U.S. quit from the
antagonistic policy demanded by north Korea is clearly peace-oriented.
The behavior of the U.S. reminds us of an imagined story: There were a
gangster at the door and the host in the house, each of them possessing a
sword. The gangster at the door waving his sword demanded that the host
should throw the sword. The demand of the U.S. being similar to the
demand of the gangster at the door, nobody would say that the U.S. is
right, if he were free to speak from the bottom of his heart.
The United States is ceaselessly performing in south Korea the
world-largest nuclear war exercises aimed at the Eurasian continent
meaning China and Russia. In response thereto, north Korea has taken
self-defensive measures of performing experimental launches of the
tactical missiles, thereby deterring war.
Thereupon, like a thief crying "Stop thief!", the U.S. influenced an
international organ to denounce north Korea for the said self-defensive
This international organ denounced only north Korea, the victim, but
connived the nuclear threats of the U.S., the offender. This
constitutes a terrible violation of the UN Charter and all the
international laws without justice and fairness. If an international
organ lost justice and fairness, it would lose as much the prestige as
an international organ.
Among the members of this organ, there is a strange member country,
who closed their eyes at the U.S. nuclear war exercises aimed at their
own country and participated in the denunciation of north Korea, who had
defended their country at the forward front line. By the way, the
United States has taken no concessionary measure to this member country
in compensation of the latter's "sacrificial favor". On the contrary,
having witnessed the cowardice of this country, the U.S. is upgrading
the military pressure on this country.
The U.S. has not accepted the peace proposals of north Korea and has
been incessantly inflicting various sanctions and nuclear threats to
this country, whereupon the U.S. has fallen to a status that the U.S.
main territory would suffer showers of missiles upon any minor
preemptive ignition against north Korea.
Owing to the agony and anguish caused by the failures in every step
of the sanctions and the military pressures on north Korea, the
psychology of the U.S. politicians must be in serious complication.
Moreover, they could not take into consideration the fact that they had
recognized their defeat in the Korean War too much clearly and for too
long before their attempt to change the defeat to victory, which
resulted in their great losses before the world. They also failed in
outlawing the north Korean nuclear. Therefore, their agony ever grows.
The present generation in the U.S. must correctly assess and judge the failures of the elders.
The memory of the history is never erasable.
If they want to alleviate their fast growing agony and anguish, they
should be wise enough to take a new way starting with acceptance of the
peace proposals of north Korea. -0
