US Imperialism’s Thrice-cursed Atrocities against Korean People- from the book "The US Imperialists Started the Korean War"

US Imperialism’s Thrice-cursed Atrocities against Korean People
1) Atrocity of Mass Murder Committed by US Imperialism against the Korean People

From the first days of their provocation of the Korean war, the US rulers used all the methods of war, coupling the numerical and technical superiority with American-style brutality and inhumanity. They had a delusion that they could frighten the Korean people and easily subdue them.
Speaking of the tactics to be employed by the US army right after the out­break of war by US imperialism, the US war maniac, Dens, raved: "I am in favour of the use of germ warfare, gas, atomic and hydrogen bombs. I cannot take a sympathetic attitude towards hospitals, churches, schools or any group of inhabitants. Charity toward any group will be nothing more than hypocrisy."*
*Pravda, August 6, 1950.
The US aggressors, as befitting such brutal nature of fascist hangmen, committed atrocities of mass slaughter against the Korean people from the first days of war.
While taking flight to the south in face of the heroic counteroffensive of the Korean People’s Army, they perpetrated all sorts of atrocities such as mur­der, incendiarism, plunder and destruction everywhere in south Korea.
Even according to the data confirmed by the initial investigation, the US aggressors murdered innumerable patriots and other people in large and small towns and villages of south Korea-1,146 in Suwon, over 2,060 in Chungju, more than 600 in Kongju and Phyongthaek respectively, over 2,000 in Puyo and Chongju respectively, 8,644 in Taejon, over 4,000 in Jonju, more than 500 in Ansong, over 400 in Kunsan and Anyang respectively, 158 in Jochiwon and
197
more than 800 in Thongyong, to cite some examples.*
*  "The Report of the Investigation Commission of the Democratic Front for the Reunifi­cation of the Fatherland on the Atrocities Committed by the US Armed Interventionists and Syngman Rhee Clique," No. 2, September 16, 1950. (Documents on the Atrocities of US Aggressors in Korea, Pyongyang, p. 38.)
Even according to a UP report, the number of inhabitants murdered in south Korea by the fleeing US imperialists and Syngman Rhee puppet clique ran into no less than one million.*
*  UP, September 15, 1951.
The US imperialists and the Syngman Rhee puppet clique thus murdered south Korean people en masse while fleeing southward, but they could neither subdue the Korean people nor escape the fate of defeat.
The US aggressors, who were faced with the danger of being plunged into the sea off Pusan, made desperate efforts to hold on to the bridgehead of Pusan at all costs, instead of learning a due lesson from the defeat.
With a view to saving the 8th Army from imminent annihilation and besieging reversely the Korean People’s Army’s main force on the Raktong-gang line, the US imperialists carried out a large-scale landing operation at Inchon in the middle of September 1950 by mobilizing over 50,000 troops, more than 300 warships and other vessels and over 1,000 planes.
To cope with the obtaining military and political situations, President Kim II Sung, the ever-victorious, iron-willed brilliant commander and gifted military strategist, put forward a new strategic policy for preparing a new, deci­sive blow at the enemy and turning the war situation in our favour, and orga­nized and directed the strategic retreat of the People’s Army. Thus the Korean war entered its second stage.
The US aggressors, again burning with the wild ambition of swallowing the whole of Korea at a gulp, perpetrated atrocities of mass murder which were beyond human imagination and unprecedented in world history in those areas which they had managed to occupy with the retreat of the People’s Army.
President Kim II Sung taught:
"Engels once called the British army the most brutal army. During World War II. the German fascist army outdid the British army in its savagery. The
198
human brain could not imagine more diabolical and horrible barbarities than those committed by the Hitlerite villains.
"But in Korea, the Yankees surpassed the Hitlerites by far."
In the Korean war the US imperialists, who had long been trained on mis­anthropy and racism, revealed their barbarity and brutality to the whole world far exceeding those of the preceding imperialists.
"Retake Seoul! There are girls and women. For three days the city will be yours. You will have girls and women in Seoul." This is the "special order" MacArthur, Commander of the "UN Forces", issued in September 1950 to US men and officers making a landing at Inchon.
As seen in this "special order" of MacArthur, the US imperialists did not hesitate in the least to throw off their masks of the so-called "civilization" and "humanism" and reveal their wolfish nature in order to retrieve themselves from their defeat in the Korean war.
In the wake of MacArthur. the commander of the 8th Army instigated his mercenary troops participating in the Korean war to the mass slaughter of the inhabitants in the areas under their temporary occupation. He said: "The sol­diers of the UN Forces!... Don’t let your hands tremble even when those who appear before you are children or old people. Kill them! In doing so you will be saving yourselves from catastrophe and fulfilling your duty as the soldiers of the UN Forces."
The US murderous leaders, man haters and racists to the marrow, gave an order for human slaughter: "The Koreans are different from Americans. So, there should be no sympathy for them. Be merciless and merciless!" Acting upon this order, the US aggressors perpetrated genocidal atrocities from the moment they crossed the 38th parallel in early October 1950 and set their foot of aggression on the northern half of the Republic. Everywhere they set foot, not a single day passed without the cursed reports of their shooting Korean people.
At that time, the murder of Koreans was encouraged among the US sol­diers as a "merit" worthy of commendation.
In his diary, Edward Lich, officer of the US 3rd Infantry Division, who fell in the Korean war, wrote:
"On the eve of Christmas our company killed 18 Korean communists.... The divisional commander promised to award a prize...."
This diary is only a fragmentary record of numerous atrocities which lays bare as it is the cannibalistic brutality and barbarity committed in Korea by the
199
US aggressors, the ringleader of modern imperialism, that inherited the brutal traditions of their Yankee ancestors who from the first days of their birth set up a country of robbers on a sea of blood shed by the American natives, estab­lished a "special fund" for the skins of the heads of Indians, encouraged their brutal murder with "prizes" and thus exterminated their race.
From such a racial point of view and in the Yankee way of doing things, the US aggressors carried out mass slaughter of Koreans during their tempo­rary occupation of the areas of the northern half of the Republic.
Massacre of Korean people was committed, above all, by the US troops and, under the direction of the US army and the "CIC" (the counterintelligence corps), by the puppet gendarmerie and various reactionary terrorist organiza­tions such as the "Peace Maintenance Corps", "Destroy-Communists Corps", "Police Force", "Skull and Crossbones Unit", "Young Men’s Association from the Northwest" and "Taehan Young Men’s Association", which were orga­nized with pro-Japanese and pro-US elements, liquidated landlords, comprador capitalists, renegades and the like.
They perpetrated the largest-scale and most brutal slaughter of people ever known in human history in the temporarily occupied areas of the northern half of the Republic.
The atrocity of mass murder committed by the US aggressors in Sinchon County, Hwanghae Province, affords the most typical example of their innu­merable murderous atrocities in the areas of the northern half of the Republic.
This massacre in Sinchon County, Hwanghae Province, was committed under the direct command of Lieut. Harrison, commander of the US occupa-tionist troops in the county.
The US aggressive army occupied the district of Sinchon on October 17, 1950. On the first date of their occupation, Harrison declared: "My orders are the law and he who ever violates them shall be shot unconditionally." He assembled the overthrown reactionary landlords, wicked religious men, usurers, scamps and other human scum and egged them on to murderous atroc­ities. And an unheard-of atrocious massacre took place in Sinchon, and the area was soon turned into a shambles of horrible human slaughter.
On October 18, the following day of their occupation of Sinchon, the aggressors locked up over 900 people including 300 children and women in the air-raid shelter of the Sinchon County Party Committee and burned them to death by setting fire to it after pouring gasoline over them. On the 19th and the 23rd they buried alive or burned to death as many as 650 people in the trenches
200
near the above-mentioned air-raid shelter. The number of people massacred during those three times, in the air-raid shelter and the trenches nearby it, reached more than 1,550.
On October 20, on the order of Harrison they herded more than 500 inhabitants including over 150 women and children into the air-raid shelter of the former Sinchon County Militia Station, blocked its entrance and blew it up with a pre-installed explosive to murder them all.
When all the air-raid shelters were filled with the corpses of people, the cutthroats worked out a new plan for massacre. On October 21, they drove five US army trucks with a full load of people to the Nambu Reservoir (present Sowon Reservoir) and threw them into it to be drowned to death. Between the latter part of October and the end of November they mercilessly murdered more than 1,600 people in the Nambu Reservoir and the Ryongmun Reservoir (present Sinchon Reservoir).
Around mid-November, to vent their anger on the inhabitants after losing a battle in a "punitive" operation against the Kuwolsan People’s Guerillas, the US aggressors arrested all the inhabitants of a village at the foot of the moun­tain and massacred over 500 people collectively at Minchon-ri on their way to Sinchon.
The desperation of the aggressors reached its zenith towards the end of November 1950, when they were compelled to flee from the northern half of the Republic in the face of the counteroffensive of the heroic Korean People’s Army.
On December 7, just before they were driven out of Sinchon, the US imperialists murdered several hundred women and children in a mass in the powder magazine in Wonam-ri, Sinchon Sub-County. Harrison, commander of the US troops occupying the area, appeared in front of the powder magazine.
Looking at the babies nestling at their mothers’ bosoms, he roared: "It is too happy for the mothers and babies to be together. Tear the babies off at once and lock them separately! Let the mothers die in their anxiety about their babies, and let the babies die while crying for their mothers!"
This was the order for a human butchery which fully revealed the canni­balistic nature of the US mercenary troops who had been thoroughly trained in fascist misanthropy by the US ruling circles and who rejoiced over manslaugh­ter.
The US mercenary troops, on the order of Harrison, tore the babies away from the bosoms of their desperately resisting mothers and locked them up in
201
another warehouse. The hills and air of Sinchon reverberated with the babies’ cries for their mothers and the screams of the mothers calling their darlings. The US cutthroats gave gasoline to those innocent babies crying for water to burn their hearts to death. They starved and froze them to death. They threw rice straw over the heads of the mothers and children, poured gasoline over it and set fire to it. Not satisfied with this, they threw more than 100 hand grenades into the warehouse through the window to murder the detainees cold­bloodedly. As a result, over 910 people including 400 mothers and 102 child­ren were killed together in the two warehouses.*
* Immediately after Sinchon County was liberated from the temporary occupation of US imperialism, the person who took part in the exhumation of corpses in this "warehouse of death" told about the horrible scene of that time as follows: "Opening the door of the warehouse we first saw piles of children’s corpses right behind it, which evidenced their struggling to get out. There were many bodies of people who had been frozen, starved or burned to death. Nails of most of the children were missing and their fingertips were smeared with blood, a clear evidence of the desperate efforts they had made to get out of the place to the moment of their lives." (Documents on the Atrocities of the US Aggres­sors in Korea. Pyongyang, p. 94.)
The Sinchon Museum and the graves for 400 mothers and 102 children in Sinchon Coun­ty, South Hwanghae Province can today be seen. They show the real facts of the thrice-cursed atrocities of mass murder committed by the US aggressors during the war.
In addition to mass murder of innocent people in Sinchon, the US aggres­sors killed numerous people individually. In this case, the methods of murder were so cruel to make even beasts turn away the sight.
On October 18, 1950, in Wolsan-ri, Chori Sub-County, Sinchon County, the US mercenaries killed a model peasant after dragging him round the village with his nose and ears run through with wire, his hands pierced through with bayonets and the letter of commendation nailed on his forehead, which he had been awarded as a model peasant.
These facts are nothing more than extremely fragmentary examples of the bestial atrocities of murder committed by US imperialism in Sinchon County.
The number of people murdered collectively and individually during the temporary occupation of Sinchon County by the US aggressors reached 35,383 or a quarter of the total population of the county. Among them, 16,234 were children, old people and women.
202
Eighty-seven per cent of the population of Mangung-ri, Kunghung Sub-County, Sinchon County, and 68 per cent of the population of Ryongdang-ri, Onchon Sub-County of the same county, were murdered mercilessly at the blood-stained hands of the US murderers. In Ryangjang-ri, Sinchon County, 100 per cent of the male inhabitants were slaughtered.
All this was the misery caused in a single county with a population of 142,788 (as of October 10, 1950), and the atrocity was committed in a little over one month of occupation by the US aggressor troops.
"I like to shoot straight at the face.... I feel a real sense of self-confidence when pointing my gun at the wounded looking up at me .... I come to know I am a matchless crack shot when the skull is broken to pieces, the eyeballs dropping out of the eyeholes, as a result of my correct aiming and shooting at the temple...." This is a US aggressor soldier’s "narrative of experiences" in the Korean war published in Daily Advocate. To the US cutthroats, human-slaugh­ter was an amusement and a kind of hunting.
The tragic scene of human butchery took place not only in Sinchon County but also in all other places where the US mercenary army had set foot on.
On October 23, 1950, the US aggressor troops came to the Unryul Mine, ran a wire through the bellies of every ten of over 2,000 workers and their fam­ily members in the mine, threw them into the pits and covered them with ore to die there. They also murdered more than 300 inhabitants by cutting their bod­ies to pieces with a fodder-cutter. In November that year, the US aggressor troops who had landed on Jang Island in Rimpho Sub-County, Jongju County, North Phyongan Province, slaughtered all the population or more than 580 inhabitants of the island. In mid-November, in Pongmyong-ri, Sangjoyang Sub-County, Hamju County, South Hamgyong Province, the enemy arrested over 20 family members of Workers’ Party members, chopped them with an ax and burned their bodies. On November 23, at Haksong Sub-County, Haksong County, North Hamgyong Province, they dragged 28 people to a mountain, poured gasoline over them and burned them to death.
The blood-thirsty US aggressors committed such brutal atrocities of murder in many other large and small towns and villages under their occu­pation.
The following table shows part of the bestial atrocities of murder committed by the US aggressors in the areas under their temporary occu­pation.

The US aggressors killed these hundreds of thousands of innocent people by shooting, hanging, beating, and burying alive. Not only that. They resorted to the most horrible, brutal methods: they killed people after dragging them with their noses and ears run through with wire, scooping out their eyeballs and cutting off nipples, skinning off their heads and bodies, cutting off their lips and tongues, dismembering their limbs, cutting their bodies to pieces with saws, burning them to death on heaps of chopped firewood, boiling them in hot water, crucifying them and rolling tanks over them. The US homicides had no scruples even of committing such an atrocity as skinning the heads of patriots and taking them away as "souvenirs", following the examples of their Yankee ancestors.
These are the real facts of the so-called "police action" committed in the Korean war in the name of the "UN Forces" by the US aggressors who had
204
grown fat on the graves of the American Indians. They are the pride of soldiers of the "civilized country" in the fifties of the 20th century which advocates "democracy" and "humanism" and poses as their "defender".
The brutality and cruelty of the US aggressors gained great notoriety in the world as their hereditary traditions, and they reached their zenith during the Korean war.
As the US aggressor troops were taking to flight from their temporarily occupied areas when the heroic Korean People’s Army went over to counterof-fensive, Truman was very flurried. On November 30, 1950, he declared: "The use of any kinds of weapons including atomic bombs on Korea is under con­sideration." By this atomic blackmail policy he wanted to retrieve their defeat.
Acting upon the instruction of their master, the US aggressors in flight threatened many peaceful inhabitants with the "dropping of atomic bombs". They took them away and murdered them en masse on the way to commit dia­bolical atrocities.
On December 4 and 5, 1950, fleeing from Pyongyang, the US aggressors forced citizens, by threats, to cross the bridge over the Taedong River. When the people were in the middle of the bridge, they blew it up to kill more than 4,000 innocent people in cold blood. According to an eyewitness of the scene, on December 4 the Taedong River was covered with a mass of people and its water was dyed with the blood of the people killed by the explosion. In January 1951 when they were again driven out of Seoul, the US aggressors took over 30,000 patriots from Seoul prisons to the south on the pretext of "transfer" and killed more than 10,000 of them en masse on the way. Besides, they committed atrocities of mass murder in Yangyang of Kangwon Province and many other districts.
The brutal atrocities of murder perpetrated by the US aggressors in the areas under their temporary occupation and at the time of their southward flight were without precedent, as the Report of the Commission of the International Association of Democratic Lawyers says: "The evidence of mass murders, individual murders and bestialities committed by the military forces of the USA against Korean civilians including women and children is overwhelming both in quantity of the crimes committed and in the variety of methods employed."*
* "Report of the Commission of the International Association of Democratic Lawyers on US Crimes in Korea." (March 31,1952.) (Documents on the Atrocities of the US Aggres-
205
sors in Korea , Pyongyang, p. 369.)
The report of the Investigation Commission of the International Demo­cratic Women’s Federation dated May 28, 1951, says: "In the areas under the temporary occupation of the US and Syngman Rhee troops, hundreds of thou­sands of peaceful inhabitants, together with their families, were tortured, burned to death and buried alive, irrespective of the old and young. Thousands of other people were dying with cold and hunger in narrow prisons without any reason, trial and sentence.
"These mass tortures and mass murders...surpass the crimes committed by Hitler Nazis in temporarily occupied Europe."*
*Jbid., p. 357.
During the Korean war the United States also committed dreadful atroci­ties against the Republic’s POWs.
In flagrant violation of the international agreement on the POWs, the United States murdered the Republic’s POWs by medieval methods. It even slaughtered them, using them as objects of experiment for bacteriological weapons and chemical warfare, as targets of ball firing and objects of the effi­ciency test of arms.
The bestial atrocities of murder committed by the US army against the Republic’s POWs at the camps in the islands of Koje, Jeju and Pongam have already been widely known to the world.
On June 15, 1951, at Compound No. 62 in Koje Island more than one hundred POWs were killed in cold blood as targets of the machine-gun ball fir­ing of the US troops, and 80 per cent of the entire POWs were used as objects for bacteriological weapon tests and their lives were threatened with various germ-diseases. As the Egyptian paper Al Jumhuria Vyisuri laid bare, over 1,400 POWs from camps in different places in south Korea were taken to the Pacific and killed en masse as objects of A-bomb tests of the United States.
In particular, in order to break up the armistice negotiations, the US impe­rialists tried hard to enforce their nonsensical claim for the so-called "voluntary repatriation" of POWs which they had fabricated for the purpose. They perpe­trated unprecedented bestial atrocities against the Republic’s POWs. The mur­derous atrocities committed by US imperialism at the camp in Koje Island in February and May 1952 are one of such examples.*
206
*The appeal signed by more than 6,200 of the Republic’s POWs in the Kojedo Camp on May 23, 1952, reads in part: "On May 19. 1952, in POW Compound No. 66, the Ameri­can devils ... falsely announced that all the POWs willing to return to north Korea should assemble before their own barracks by 7 p.m. ready to embark.... While we were getting into line, American soldiers opened fire with machine guns and flamethrowers and used even tanks, killing 127 of our comrades and wounding many more. On two successive days. May 20 and 21, in the four divisions of our camp, more than 1,000 of our comrades were summoned to the offices of the American military police and the POW Camp Com­mandant to be subjected to the so-called ‘voluntary repatriation’ questionings. 422 of our comrades have not returned till now, while more than 100 returned bleeding all over with fractured arms and dagger wounds in their breasts, with their backs, wrists and breasts branded with disgraceful characters.... There is no limit to the brutality of the American murderers.... They ... have beaten us with iron rods and leather whips. They have kicked us and set their fierce dogs on us. In steam chambers they have suffocated our comrades to death. They have strangled them and quartered them. The cannibals in American mili­tary uniforms are using our patriots barbarously in the bacteriological, chemical and atom­ic weapon tests." (Korean Central Yearbook, 1953, Pyongyang, p. 174.)
As this account of POWs smuggled out of the Kojedo POW Camp tells, the US troops perpetrated brutal massacre beyond human imagination: they shot gas shells and machine guns to murder en masse those empty-handed pris-oners-of-war who refused to obey their demand to reject the repatriation to the Republic, buried them alive, burned, starved and froze them to death, or set dogs on them to tear them to death. They exhausted every means of atrocity against the women prisoners of war before killing them.
Due to such bestial atrocities of murder committed by the US imperialists, during the war a large number of Republic’s POWs were mercilessly slaugh­tered. Many were wounded or maimed for life.
No period throughout human history, in all ages and countries, be it a period of the worse despotic rule or a period of darkness overridden by fascist • hangmen, and no bloody war of aggression, has ever seen such a record of bar­barities that could surpass, in brutality and bestiality, the atrocities of murder committed by the US murderers in the Korean war.
Such was the very showcase of "democracy" and "humanism" of the United States which poses as a "civilized nation" of the 20th century and such was part of the cold-blooded murder committed by the advocates of "peace". In the Korean war the United States fully revealed to the whole world its true
207
colour as a "civilized nation".
The US imperialists had dreamed of bringing the Korean people to their knees by means of horrible bestial atrocities, but could never subjugate the Korean people who were determined to defend the freedom and happiness of their fatherland at the cost of their lives. On the contrary, the murderous atroci­ties they had committed in Korea stirred up the Korean people’s national resentment and strong feeling of hostility all the more. The Korean people fought with increasing persistency in order to avenge the massacre of their par­ents, brothers and sisters on the US aggressors, to wreak vengeance upon the enemy a thousand and one times.

UK KFA slams covert surveillance of Picket

UK KOREAN FRIENDSHIP ASSOCIATION
                   London 29th of June 2015
As reported the UK KFA Picket of the US embassy on the 25th of June was a great success , everyone that was there agrees . However the picket was subjected to a very hamfisted attempt at covert surveillance by the creepy characters pictured . These were not innocent bystanders or journalists as they quickly moved away and were apparently seen to get into a car with a number plate ending in kkk . We leave it to you to decide how they are and who they were working for !
UK KFA strongly condemns this attempt at covert surveillance of our picket which was a legitimate protest which had been cleared in advance with the authorities .

In normal circumstances we would have ignored this action without commenting and just got on with the business of defending the DPRK .However it is is one of several hostile actions against both KFA and UK KFA . These have included DOS attacks on the main KFA website , the actual blocking of the KFA website on the orders of the US authorities and last years victimization of a UK KFA Offficial his workplace.





KCNA Commentary Accuses U.S. of Its Moves to Launch Nuclear War


    Pyongyang, June 29 (KCNA) -- The U.S. military moves to launch a nuclear war on the Korean peninsula at any cost have reached an ever more undisguised and full-fledged phase.
    Recently, latest missile cruiser Chancellorsville of the U.S. Navy equipped with Aegis system anchored at the U.S. military base in Yokosuka, Japan.
    Belonging to carrier flotilla, it has the mission to strike naval and underwater targets while performing missile defense and anti-air defense duties. Military experts are unanimous in commenting that it is the first time for the U.S. to deploy overseas the warship with such striking-capability.
    Two cruisers equipped with similar missile defense system will be deployed in Yokosuka late in 2017.
    If the above-said warships are deployed, the number of the warships in the U.S. Navy base in Yokosuka will reach 14 including the U.S. nuclear carrier Ronald Reagan to be deployed at the end of this year, the appearance of the largest-ever warship fleet in Japan since World War II, foreign press reports said.
    As regards the deployment of three warships equipped with Aegis system, the U.S. Navy base command in Yokosuka claimed it is part of the U.S. "strategy for making a switchover to Asia-Pacific" in a bid to "contain" the DPRK and China.
    It was also reported that the U.S. is mulling temporarily deploying four Global Hawks at the Misawa airfield of Japan from July.
    All these military moves under the pretext of "containing the DPRK and China" are aimed to kick up an overall nuclear war racket against the DPRK in the ground, air and seas.
    This fully revealed once again the aggressive nature of the U.S. imperialists who are making no scruple of periodically disturbing peace and stability in the region to attain their strategic and avaricious purposes.
    Through a statement of the National Defence Commission the DPRK declared before the whole world that its army and people would launch a nationwide action of a new high level against the robber-like U.S. imperialists.
    As clarified in the statement, the frantic moves the U.S. has stepped up for a nuclear war by introducing Chancellorsville, Global Hawk and the like would face stronger counter-actions of the DPRK.
    The U.S. would be well advised to bear in mind that the DPRK has already put in place powerful strike group equipped with strategic and tactical rockets to cope with its missile threat.
    The U.S. is required to pay heed to the DPRK's warning that it is ready for conventional or nuclear or cyber wars.
    The world people still remember and will never forget such crime committed by the U.S. against humanity 70 years ago as dropping atomic bombs over Hiroshima and Nagasaki to achieve its strategic aim.
    It is a serious miscalculation and daydream for the U.S. to think it can employ the same method on the Korean peninsula as what it did to attain its purpose.
    It is as clear as a pikestaff that if the U.S. nuclear maniacs ignite a nuclear war on the peninsula at any cost, they will perish in the flames kindled by themselves.
    After all, the U.S. styling itself "the world's only superpower" will precipitate its final ruin. -

FROM THE BOOK "DISTORTION OF US PROVOCATION OF KOREAN WAR"


The divulgence of the secret before the outbreak of the Korean War was also made public.
A Japanese book, The Korean War (by Hora Tomio, pp. 24-25), said, “Chinese capitalists in the United States in those days seem to have known the relatively correct time of the
outbreak of the Korean War” and pointed out two facts as proofs. One is that P. M. Sweezy, editor of Monthly Review
, which published The Hidden History of the Korean War
, said in the publisher’s foreword, “Immediately before the outbreak of the Korean War at least 51 Chinese who are associated with the Nationalist Party and living in the United States and other parts of the world bought up large amounts
of soya beans in the bean market of the United States and profited more than $30,000,000. This suggests that the Chinese in the United States were informed of Syngman Rhee’s plan beforehand and tried to profit from the information.” The other is that a special issue of
China Lobby carried an article which said, “Two to three w
eeks before the outbreak of the Korean War the Chinese bought $ 6,886,000 bushels of soya beans for $ 2.34 a
bushel. ... After the invasion of the ROK the price jumped up to $ 34.5.”
This book also quoted The Story of Korea, coauthored by Coldwell and Prost, staff members of the US embassy in Seoul, which said, “Britain knew late at night on the day when the war started that there had been a warning that English people should escape three weeks before as far as possible. There were only six persons in the British embassy and theysensed that a war might break out.”
This proves that the secret of the Korean War leaked out
US book, The Modern History of the United States , (Japanese ed., p. 153) pointed out that Dulles’s Interna tional Nickel, which occupied 85% of nickel production in the capitalist world in those days, had raised its nickel price by 25% two months before June 25, 1950, linked the fact that the rubber price in the United States jumped up 50% between March and May 1950 to reach the postwar record in
the United States’ rubber export during the second quarter of 1950, with the evident danger of rubber supply because of the war in the Far East, and exposed that “people other than
Dulles’s International Nickel and soya bean speculators knew of the war in advance.”
A Japanese book, The Korean War , Sinjimbutsu Shuraisha, 1973, pp. 22-23, commented that the full-scale landing exercise with landing ship tanks by the 16th Regiment of the US 24th Infantry Division in Japan from June 20, 1950, and the noisy purchase of the dictionaries of the Korean language by US occupation troops in Japanese showed unusual
movements, foreboding among the Japanese the approach of a war. The June 1966 issue of the Japanese journal,
Study of Korea , analyzed as a premonition of war the new painting of US army signs on the US jeeps in mid-June 1950 by mobilizing all the painters in Kogura city, Kyushu, Japan, where the 24th US Infantry Division was stationed

Crushing Defeat Suffered by the United States



The Korean war (1950-1953) was the first war in which the United States, having boasted of its being the “strongest” in the world, suffered an ignominious defeat.
While starting a war in Korea, the US had reckoned that it could easily occupy the country by means of its numerical and technical superiorities. The then US military brasshats bragged to the press that the war would be finished within 72 hours.
The US hurled into it a huge armed force over two million strong, including the one-third of its ground force, one-fifth of its air force, and most of its Pacific Fleet, troops of 15 vassal states, the south Korean puppet army, state-of-the-art combat and technical equipment, including B-29 strategic bomber, called as “air fortress,” and enormous amounts of war supplies worth over 73 million tons.
However, the US suffered in the Korean war tremendous loss nearly 2.3 times as much as that it had suffered in the Pacific war: 1 567 128 men including 405 498 US soldiers were killed, wounded or captured, and over 12 220 aircraft, 3 250 tanks and armoured vehicles, 13 350 trucks, 560 warships, 7 690 artillery guns, and 925 150 small arms were lost.
The US military celebrities, known as famous generals of the Pacific War, were either killed or sacked from their posts, being responsible for defeat in the war. The “General Christmas Offensive” at the end of November 1950 so vaunted by the US resulted in the “December general retreat.” Anti-war protests gained momentum within the US mainland, arousing the impeachment of the US President and the replacement of the State Secretary. Douglas MacArthur and Matthew Ridgway, who served as commander of the UN Forces, were ousted from their posts, and those in command of US 1st, 2nd, 7th and 25th Divisions fired. “Smith’s special attack unit” which was the first American unit that engaged in ground operation was smashed to bits, and the US 24th Division, which had boasted of being “ever-victorious,” was encircled and completely routed, and many US army units were destroyed in succession. General Walker, commander of the US 8th Army, was killed in a military operation of the Korean People’s Army, and Dean, US 24th Division commander, was captured by a KPA soldier.
The myth of US “mightiness” was shattered in the sky and on the sea, as well.
On October 30, 1951, US B-29s under the aegis of 90 fighter-bombers made sorties to the Korean front. But three B-29s were shot down and five damaged. That day was listed as “Black Tuesday” in the US Air Force. In the following week alone, 20 “air fortress B-29s” were destroyed. Since the breakout of the Korean war 2 200 US pilots were seized with war phobia and evaded their flying service.
On July 2, 1950, four torpedo boats of the KPA navy attacked on the sea off Jumunjin the US heavy cruiser Baltimore of 17 000 tons with an escort of a light cruiser and destroyer, sinking it deep in the sea, and damaging the light cruiser.
Omar Bradley, chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff, confessed at a Congressional hearing in May 1951 that the US waged the wrong war at the wrong place and with the wrong enemy. It proved that the US already recognized its defeat in the Korean war when the war was at its height.
The US News and World Report wrote that the loss in the Korean war was over two times of the total of those the US had suffered in five great wars, the War of Independence, the War of 1812, the Mexican War, the Spanish-American War and the Philippine War.
After the Korean war the former US Defense Secretary George Marshall deplored, “The myth exploded to atoms, and it became clear to everyone that the United States was not so strong as others thought her to be.” Mark Clark, commander of the US Far East forces and concurrently commander of the UN forces in Korea, recalled the time when he signed the Korean Armistice Agreement, saying: In carrying out the instructions of my government I gained the unenviable distinction of being the first United States Army Commander in history to sign an armistice agreement without victory. I suffered a sense of frustration…”
The ignominious defeat suffered by the US was the first of its kind in American history. It can neither be retrievable nor removed, no matter how long time passes.
The US should never forget the loss in the past Korean war.
If it becomes oblivious of the lesson from it and starts another war in the Korean peninsula, it will suffer its complete doom beyond comparison with the past.

London 28th of June (Juche 104) 2015
 The Association for the Study of Songun Politics UK and the Juche Idea Study Group of England issued the following joint statement in remembrance of the great leader President KIM IL SUNG to mark the 21st anniversary of his passing away ;
We Juche Idea and Songun Idea followers of the UK recall the revolutionary activities and the teachings of the great leader  President KIM IL SUNG on the 21st anniversary of his passing away. Our delegation was in the DPRK in June 1994 and remember the image of the great leader President KIM IL SUNG on the socialist co-operative fields
 The great leader President KIM IL SUNG authored the Juche Idea based on the core principle that man is the master of everything and decides everything. The Juche Idea has become the great banner of independence , its light blazing across the world inspired the oppressed toiling millions in their struggle. The Juche idea captivated the anti-imperialists and revolutionaries throughout the world . Thousands of seminars on the Juche idea have been held all over the world.
    The Songun idea initiated by the great leader generalissimo KIM IL SUNG  in  the fiery days of the anti-Japanese armed struggle  is based on the concept that independence is achieved by arms and the victorious revolution is defended by arms . The Songun idea , which has been implemented by the worthy successors of the great leader generalissimo KIM IL SUNG, eternal general secretary KIM JONG IL and dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN , is the treasured sword that defends the independence and dignity of People's Korea the bastion of world socialism.
                                                   The great leader comrade KIM IL SUNG's creed was independence . He took up arms at an early age to drive out the ferocious Japanese imperialist invaders. The great leader comrade KIM IL SUNG defeated two aggressive imperialisms , Japanese and US in one generation . He liberated Korea from the iron-heel of Japanese colonialism and thwarted the fascistic Yankee imperialists attempt to conquer the DPRK in the 1950s. The great leader generalissimo was known as the gifted military strategist and ever-victorious iron-willed brilliant commander.

        The great leader comrade KIM IL SUNG upheld the banner of anti- US ,anti -imperialist struggle when others preached 'peaceful co-existence ' , co-operating with imperialism . He upheld unity against division when others split the international communist movement and socialist camp. The great leader comrade KIM IL SUNG upheld the red flag of socialism when others abandoned it. He was a great revolutionary true to his faith until the very last moment.
  Upholding the maxim the "People Are My God " the great leader comrade KIM IL SUNG built a socialist people's paradise in Korea.  A perfect socialism centred on the popular masses came into being.  The great leader comrade KIM IL SUNG ensured that Rightist and Leftist deviations were avoided in the construction of socialism. Moreover socialism in Korea was not a copy of another country but Korean-style socialism, an independent Juche socialism. The DPRK upheld socialist principles when others introduced capitalist-style methods.
            The great leader President KIM IL SUNG put forward  correct policies for independent national reunification as well for the south Korean revolution. The great leader President KIM IL SUNG also put forward brilliant lines and strategies for the world revolution and achieving independence.
                                     Today we , the ASSPUK and JISGE, remember the great leader President KIM IL SUNG as the eternal leader of the Korean people and WPK , the author of the Juche idea, the benevolent liberator of the Korean people, the ever-victorious iron-willed commander and the outstanding of the world revolution.  We are confident that the ideas and cause of the great leader President KIM IL SUNG is being faithfully carried forward by dear respected leader  Marshal KIM JONG UN

UK KFA Picket of US embassy 25th of June 2015





A successful picket (double the number of people as before) of the US Embassy was held at 4pm on the 25th of June  to mark the start of the Month of Solidarity with the Korean people and the 65th anniversary of the start of provocation of the great Fatherland Liberation War. It was organised by the UK Korean Friendship Association supported by the ASSPUK , JISGE and the New Communist Party . It was attended by UK KFA members  and supporters, Spanish KFA members resident in London, members of the JISGE and ASSPUK , the New Communist Party  including general secretary Andy Brooks and CC member Theo Russell . Members of the RCPBML and CPGBML were also present.
Dermot Hudson UK KFA chairman and Chairman of the JISGE made a short speech introducing the picket explaining it was part of the Month of Solidarity with the Korean people and it was to mark the 65th anniversary of the start of the Korean War (Fatherland Liberation War ) . US troops still occupy south Korea today. Comrade Hudson said that KFA Ireland were also  picketing the US embassy in Dublin.
                        Dermot Hudson also said  " The US imperialists, the ringleader of the world imperialism and international reactionaries, provoked a war in Korea on the 25th of June 1950 by instigating their south Korean puppets to attack the young Democratic Peoples Republic of Korea. The US imperialists were hungry for profits and conquest. The US imperialists fought an unjust aggressive war against the Korean people. The US imperialists launched a war of conquest against the DPRK , a war to destroy the Juche-based people's democratic system in the DPRK as well to destroy socialism in Asia and the world.
The Korean people led by the great revolutionary leader Marshal KIM IL SUNG, a true military strategic genius and ever-victorious iron-willed brilliant fought a fierce anti- imperialist, anti- US struggle against US imperialism and the allied forces of international reaction. It was a fierce class struggle against the enemies of the people. The Korean people fought a national liberation war against the Yankee imperialist invaders, a war of justice for independence and freedom and also a war to reunify the sacred motherland. The Fatherland Liberation War of the Korean people proved to  a crucible of the Songun idea.
                   We condemn the appalling barbarity of the US imperialists during the Fatherland Liberation War . We denounce their crimes of massacring civilians, use of biological and chemical weapons. 35,383 people were murdered by the US at Sinchon -ri and 1,050 people at Susan-ri (one third of the population of the area),  just to give a few examples.  The US imperialists tried to exterminate the Korean people by carrying out the war that they long planned . History will curse forever the US imperialists as sub-human savages and criminals as well as an enemy of humanity and progress. Indeed US imperialism is the ringleader of aggression and war. As proved by the recent racial violence and oppression of black people. it is the US that is the biggest human rights violator in the world.
                         The US imperialists continue to occupy south Korea to these very  day ,ignoring the will of the Korean people and the voices of world progressives. The US imperialists have committed crimes in south Korea too numerous to mention but these include  murder,rape and theft. They are exploiting the south Korean people by taking huge sums of money in  so-called "upkeep expenses". The US imperialists have introduced anthrax into south Korea in order to commit genocide against the Korean nation . This is a horrendous crime. The US imperialists have also tried to stifle the DPRK using the "human rights " issue and used the UN against the DPRK."

The speaker referred in detail to the US atrocities at Sinchon Ri.

Andy Brooks general secretary of the New Communist Party thanked everyone for coming saying it was a very successful. He said that US had caused the nuclear issue on the Korean peninsula by reneging on agreements with the DPRK.
The following slogans were shouted;
US OUT OF KOREA
YANKEE GO HOME
KOREA IS ONE
LONG LIVE THE WORKERS' PARTY OF KOREA
LONG LIVE MARSHAL KIM JONG UN
LONG LIVE THE WORKERS PARADISE OFTHE DPRK
DOWN WITH US IMPERIALISM
DOWN WITH THE FASCIST AMERICAN REGIME

The banner of the UK KFA was displayed  together banners opposing US sanctions on the DPRK . The DPRK flag was raised and also the Korean reunification flag.

Ryan Hermman UK KFA Organisation said picket was successful that they would  picket US embassy be back again !
Dermot Hudson made a concluding speech and the picket ended.

DPRK Will Never Pardon Park Geun Hye Group's Provocation: CPRK Secretaria

Pyongyang, June 27 (KCNA) -- The Secretariat of the Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of Korea (CPRK) issued its information bulletin No. 1097 on Saturday denouncing the south Korean puppet group for kicking off the racket for confrontation with the DPRK. It said:
    On June 26 the Park Geun Hye group blustered that it would opt for "putting stronger pressure on the north to allure it to change", revealing independent "financial sanctions on the north" this time after joining the U.S. and UN in their "sanctions on the north".
    Though the DPRK government in a statement clarified the will for improving the inter-Korean relations, the puppet group is keen to intensify military tie-ups with the U.S. and Japanese masters, while vociferating about "nuclear threat from the north" and its "human rights issue" almost every day. The puppet group including Park Geun Hye, the puppet prime minister and the foreign minister claimed that "north's nukes will bring isolation and sanctions only" and it is "anachronistic", malignantly slandering the DPRK's line of simultaneously developing the two fronts.
    With the June 25 Korean war as a momentum, the puppet military warmongers once again test-fired ballistic missile aimed at "striking the whole of the north" and introduced U.S. nuclear submarine Michigan to Pusan, opening its interior. Recently, they dared bluster that they would turn "concept for operating military muscle" into the orientation to mount preemptive strike at core facilities of the north.
    Such confrontational racket kicked off by the Park group is a heinous one blatantly challenging the principled stand of the DPRK and a treacherous crime driving the north-south relations into the uncontrollable worst phase.
    The situation prevailing on the Korean peninsula is reaching a hair-raising crisis of war due to the reckless moves of the puppet group.
    The DPRK will never pardon the provocative moves of the Park group deliberately foiling the inter-Korean relations and inciting a war fever in order to attain its despicable political purpose but sternly punish it in the name of the entire nation. Provokers will face merciless punishment and miserable ruin. -0

U.S. Moves against DPRK Censured: DPRK FM Spokesman

    Pyongyang, June 26 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the Foreign Ministry of the DPRK gave an answer to a question put by KCNA Friday condemning the U.S. Department of State for slandering the dignified DPRK once again in its "annual report on human rights". He noted:
    The assistant secretary of the U.S. State for Democracy, Human Rights and Labor in a special press conference on June 25 talked about "change", malignantly taking issue with the DPRK over its "human rights issue".
    He revealed once again the U.S. sinister attempt to carry out its ambition for bringing down the Korean-style socialist system centered on the popular masses at any cost under the pretext of "protecting human rights".
    The U.S. is dreaming a foolish dream that any "change" may take place in the DPRK, no more than jargon provoking a side-splitting laughter.
    But it will only see the DPRK's military muscle increasing in every way and its people enjoying a happy life under socialism.
    Now that the U.S. persists in the hostile policy toward the DPRK, it will take tougher countermeasures.
    The world will clearly see how the DPRK will smash the U.S. moves for isolating and stifling it. -0-

http://www.uk-songun.com/index.php email juche007@yahoo.co,uk
        London 26th of June Juche 104(2015)
The Association for the Study of Songun Politics UK(ASSPUK) , the Juche Idea Study Group of England(JISGE) and the UK Korean Friendship Association (UK KFA) issued the following joint statement in support of the statement of the Committee For the Peaceful Reunification(CPRK) of Korea issued on Wednesday 24th of June;

The setting up of the so-called "UN Human Rights Office for the DPRK " is an extreme affront to the dignity of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea  and wanton infringement of the DPRK's  independence and sovereignty !

As the statement of the CPRK says "    As for the "UN office for human rights performance in the north", it is an illegal, plot-breeding tool the U.S. and its followers invented by abusing the name of the UN in an aim to stifle the DPRK, frightened at the invincible might of Korean-style socialism centered on the popular masses." Basically the UN Human Rights Office in Seoul is a centre for the overthrow of socialism in the DPRK, a den of intrigue and conspiracy to undermine and stifle people-centred socialism in Korea.
                            We reiterate that there is no 'human rights issue' in the DPRK and nothing for the UN to investigate there and thus no need for such an office in south Korea.
                   The creation of such an institution on south Korean soil is an act contrary to the  June 15 declaration , the October 4th Declaration and the whole spirit of "By Our Nation Itself " . Indeed it is an unspeakable act of co-operating with the enemies of the Korean nation and allowing outsiders to intervene in the affairs of the Korean nation and disrupt moves towards reunification.

We support the correct stand of the CPRK of the DPRK not to have any further dealings with the south Korean puppets .

Campaign against U.S. and S. Korean Warmongers' Moves for War against DPRK Called for

  Pyongyang, June 26 (KCNA) -- The Information Bureau of the Central Committee of the Anti-Imperialist National Democratic Front issued an appeal to all south Koreans on June 25, 65th year since the U.S. imperialists ignited a war of aggression against the DPRK, according to the website Kuguk Jonson.
    The appeal said:
    The Korean war was a horrible war of aggression and an unprecedented war of genocide against the Korean nation as the U.S. fought with the involvement of more than 2 million troops including the U.S. forces, armies of its 15 satellite countries and south Korean puppet army and huge latest war hardware for the purpose of occupying the whole of Korea and realizing its world domination.
    In the whole course of the war the U.S. mobilized huge quantities of war hardware and ran the whole gamut of man-killing methods baffling human imagination but it was forced to kneel down before the army and people of north Korea who turned out in the struggle for protecting the dignity of the nation and the country's sovereignty.
    The U.S. imperialist aggressors should have pulled out of south Korea, drawing a due lesson from its bitter defeat in the Korean war. They are, however, watching for a chance of invading the north while reinforcing its latest war hardware and staging ceaseless moves for a new war with its wild ambition to occupy the whole of Korea.
    The south Korean warmongers and conservative group hell-bent on sycophancy towards the U.S. and confrontation with the fellow countrymen in the north are working hard to ignite a war of aggression against compatriots as a colonial shock brigade of the U.S. while blustering that south Koreans should not forget a war even in peace time.
    Another June 25 war is not a fiction but is becoming a reality on the Korean peninsula due to the south Korea-U.S. warmongers' reckless war hysteria against the north.
    The appeal called on all south Koreans to launch an intensive campaign to shatter the U.S. and its satellite warmongers' reckless moves for a war of aggression against the north in a do-or-die spirit and with faith in sure victory and thus usher in a new era of peace and reunification. -0-

KCNA Commentary Censures U.S. Germ Warfare

 Pyongyang, June 26 (KCNA) -- A Japanese American newspaper reporter recently published an article titled "South Korea MERS Emerged Out of the PENTAGON's Biowarfare Labs".
    A series of evidence has been disclosed to prove that spread of MERS is linked with the research into virus now under way under the U.S. Department of Defense's germ operation plan.
    With MERS threatening the whole of south Korea, there are suspicions about the U.S. forces' experiment of anthrax with more than 90 percent of mortality rate and botulinus 100 000 times more poisonous than anthrax.
    A recent disclosure of a report on germ warfare by the U.S. during the June 25 war proves the U.S. attempt at a germ warfare against the DPRK.
    The U.S. unhesitatingly used germ and other chemical weapons against Koreans in wanton violation of international law and war norms during the last Korean war.
    It pushed forward the preparations for germ warfare in top secrecy while mapping out a war scenario for invading the DPRK.
    UP reported on March 25, 1952 that the U.S. strategists focus on germ warfare next to A-bomb as a lethal weapon.
    After the Japanese imperialists' defeat in the Second World War, the U.S. imperialists buckled down to collecting research data of the ill-famed Japanese army unit 731 and in 1947 they signed a secret agreement to the effect that chief of the unit Shiro Ishii and other murderers would not be brought to Tokyo war criminal tribunal, in return for handover of germ warfare and chemical warfare experts and all data on experiments of guinea pigs from the unit.
    According to the agreement, the U.S. took over data on more than 8 000 germ and toxic gas experiments conducted on more than 3.6 million guinea pigs as well as all kinds of reference data, photos, film-slides, germ shell designs, germ research institutes and facilities in Japan.
    At the instruction of MacAthur, the then commander of the U.S. forces in the Far East, war criminals of Unit 731 including Shiro were involved in the research into germ weapons of the U.S. forces.
    In the subsequent period, the south Korean authorities systematically took over from the U.S. technical data about study and development of germ weapons including the technology of cultivating and extracting more than 20 kinds of germs and viruses causing cholera, smallpox, yellow fever, pest, epidemic hemorrhagic fever and typhoid that were developed by Unit 731 and widely used by the U.S. imperialist aggression forces during the Korean war.
    In 1976 the U.S. brought to south Korea a detached force of a microorganism research institute under of Unit 406 of the U.S. army germ weapon research institute in Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan. It set up germ institutes in Korea University and Kyunghee University and experimented the germ of epidemic hemorrhagic fever, a malignant epidemic disease of high fatality, among south Koreans and students, proving its pervasive effect.
    The U.S. also set up a germ laboratory at Osan U.S. Air Force Base and made preparations for a germ warfare while operating germ warfare special unit. It has pushed forward them under the codename of "Jupiter scenario" in recent two years.
    Those with normal thinking faculty will never be taken in by shameless sophism of the U.S. ruling quarters who deny the atrocity of large-scale germ warfare that was committed and is being committed in Korea.
    The germ warfare committed by the U.S. against the Korean people is recorded as the most barbarous and inhuman genocide in world history.
    The international community has to bring the U.S. to international war criminal tribunal for the hideous crimes it committed by taking lives of a number of Koreans and polluting the land of Korea. -0-

ASSPUK , JISGE and UK KFA support white paper of DPRK National Reunification Institute

ASSOCIATION FOR THE STUDY OF SONGUN POLITICS UK
http://www.uk-songun.com/index.php email juche007@yahoo.co,uk
                       London 25th of June Juche 104(2015)
The Association for the Study of Songun Politics UK(ASSPUK) , the Juche Idea Study Group of England(JISGE) and the UK Korean Friendship Association (UK KFA) issued the following joint statement in support of the White paper of the National Reunification Institute of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea concerning the deplorable state of south Korean workers ;


South Korea is known throughout  as the  "republic of the Chaebols ".  Chaebols being large monopoly corporations and conglomerates. In south Korea the big monopolies dominate life and control everything . The rich get ever richer and the poor get ever poorer. South Korea is rent by the class and social contradictions and the people suffer because of the anti-popular rule  of the Park Geun Hye regime and the ruling elite  as well as the exploitation of the US imperialists and multi-national corporations.


Unemployment is a big problem in south Korea . As the DPRK National Reunification Institute White Paper says "The number was over 3.5 million in 2013 which rose to at least 4.5 million in 2014 and more than 500 000 of them gave up employment. And the number of underemployed increased to 10 million from 8 million in the period.". Even university graduates cannot find work with over 2 million of them unemployed. This shows the disastrous effects of puppet rule in south Korea and the contradictions of the capitalist system .

Part time workers in south Korea face discrimination and ill treatment.

South Korea workers suffer from many industrial accidents. As the NRI points out " The number was over 3.5 million in 2013 which rose to at least 4.5 million in 2014 and more than 500 000 of them gave up employment. And the number of underemployed increased to 10 million from 8 million in the period."

South Korea is also known for having the longest working hours in the world according to the UN ILO  but at the same time have the shortest holidays for workers.

All these facts show that south Korea is a living hell on earth in which the rights of workers are violated all the time . South Korea is a society where the 1 per cent exploit the 99 per cent . It is a corrupt and rotten society which should be overthrown at once ! South Korea should not criticise the DPRK over human rights and slander the most advantageous socialist  system in the DPRK where genuine popular policies are enforced  and there is no unemployment.

KCNA Commentary on Cause of Outbreak of MERS in S. Korea

   Pyongyang, June 26 (KCNA) -- More and more south Koreans are getting increasingly skeptical about the authorities' explanation of the cause of outbreak of MERS in south Korea which is now spreading there at a rapid tempo.
    It was reported that in the earliest phase of the south Korean outbreak, 100 south Korean military personnel were quarantined at the Osan U.S. Air Force Base, following the MERS infection of a serviceman.
    This indicates that the Osan Base may have been the starting point of the MERS outbreak, not a south Korean who visited a Mideast country.
    As already reported worldwide, there is a laboratory for germ warfare of the U.S. forces at the Osan Base.
    The U.S. used to conduct dangerous biochemical experiments under the pretext of a military biological surveillance program, etc. in south Korea.
    The U.S. openly announced that it recently conducted an experiment of anthrax at the base under the pretence of coping with the "biochemical threat from north Korea".
    This fact alone proves that south Korea may turn into a horrible epidemic area and hell of death any time due to the U.S. scenario.
    In April 2014, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency inaugurated its Biological Technologies Office with MERS research as its top priority. This Pentagon-funded program outsources biowarfare-related research to dozens of biotech companies and civilian labs at institutes and universities in the U.S. and abroad.
    A U.S. naval research unit based in a country subsequently deciphered the genetic code of MERS.
    The U.S. is getting frantic to realize the sinister ambition to dominate the world with the horrible biochemical weapons at home and abroad. No doubt, the U.S. will perpetrate such acts without hesitation in its colony south Korea.
    The first MERS infection was reportedly pinned on a man in Kyonggi Province where the Osan Base is located.
    Now south Korean people unanimously raise questions as to the outbreak of epidemic timed to coincide with the anthrax experiment made by the U.S. forces.
    A Japanese American newspaper reporter on June 18 said in an article:
    "The shipment was possibly organized to falsely attribute any death of Korean military personnel to anthrax rather than MERS in order to conceal the weaponization of MERS."
    The U.S. has always been behind a lot of misfortunes and sufferings of mankind.
    The truth behind the suspicious epidemic outbreak is clear and those responsible for it can never escape a severe punishment. -0

CPRK Assails south Korean regime anti DPRK Human Rights racket

Pyongyang, June 25 (KCNA) -- The south Korean puppet group set up at last a "UN office for human rights performance in the north", an anti-DPRK plot-breeding tool, in Seoul on Tuesday despite the repeated warnings of the DPRK and the strong opposition of people at home and abroad.
    In this regard, the puppet authorities and rowdy elements of south Korea now say about "historic landmark", "useful aid and cooperation" and the like and the conservative group including the "Saenuri Party" is attempting to pass the "bill on human rights in the north" staying at the "National Assembly".
    The U.S. and other hostile forces have shown "welcome" to it, revealing their intention to stifle the DPRK.
    The Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of Korea (CPRK) on Wednesday issued a statement branding this as the most hideous political provocation to the DPRK.
    The statement said:
    The CPRK, in the name of the entire Korean nation, bitterly condemns the establishment of the plot-breeding tool by the south Korean puppet group under the wire-pulling of the U.S. as a blatant challenge to the dignity and social system of the DPRK and an open declaration of war against it.
    All Koreans ardently wish for earlier improved north-south relations, hailing the statement of the DPRK government issued on the occasion of the 15th anniversary of the historic June 15 North-South Joint Declaration. At this time the Park Geun Hye group of south Korea staged a foul confrontation racket in total ignorance of the DPRK's magnanimity and sincerity as well as of the fellow countrymen's expectation and desire. This is a never-to-be-condoned treachery.
    As for the "UN office for human rights performance in the north", it is an illegal, plot-breeding tool the U.S. and its followers invented by abusing the name of the UN in an aim to stifle the DPRK, frightened at the invincible might of Korean-style socialism centered on the popular masses.
    That is why various circles of south Korea have strongly opposed the establishment of the "office" intended to incite confrontation of social systems, spoil the north-south relations and invite a war, branding the "office" as an "anti-north plot-breeding body in the guise of the UN" and a "deceive human rights tool for interference".
    Many countries and Western media, too, have strongly rejected the UN's "report on human rights in the north", "resolution on north Korean human rights performance" and "office for human rights performance in the north" as deceptive since they were prompted by extreme prejudice and insidious political aims without any creditability.
    The DPRK had already warned that the "office" would become a target of merciless strike from the moment it puts up nameplate.
    It is no longer need to deal anything with those keen only on hysteric confrontation racket and what remains to be done is only the final showdown. This is the fixed will of all servicepersons and civilians in the DPRK.
    The Park Geun Hye group will have to entirely take the blame for all the ensuing catastrophic consequences in the north-south relations from this moment. -0-

ASSPUK, JISGE and UK KFA support statement of DPRK NDC on War Moves of the US

ASSOCIATION FOR THE STUDY OF SONGUN POLITICS UK
http://www.uk-songun.com/index.php email juche007@yahoo.co,uk

                       London 25th of June Juche 104(2015)
The Association for the Study of Songun Politics UK(ASSPUK) , the Juche Idea Study Group of England(JISGE) and the UK Korean Friendship Association (UK KFA) issued the following joint statement in support of the statement of the National Defence Commission of the Democratic People's Republic  on the 65th anniversary of the start of the great Fatherland Liberation War :

We applaud this excellent statement issued  by the National Defence Commission of the DPRK . The militancy of the statement is a great encouragement to all those throughout the world who stand against US Imperialism and struggle against it . It is a daring and courageous statement !
                  It is 65 years since the US imperialists provoked the war against the Korean people in a bid to not only destroy people's democracy in north Korea but to conquer Asia and roll back the gains of socialism in the Soviet Union and the People's Republic of China. The US imperialists also wanted to seize the rich material resources of Korea and turn its people into slaves of world monopoly capital. Despite the passage of several decades  the US imperialists aim remain unchanged and they still persist with their designs against the DPRK.
                 Moreover they are actually intensifying their moves against the DPRK . As the statement of the DPRK NDC aptly puts it " The U.S. ambition still lingers on the Korean peninsula as a ghost of aggression and war.
    This is reflected in the U.S. hostile policy toward the DPRK, war acts pursuant to it and strategic move for laying a siege to the Asian continent.
    The U.S. design to politically isolate and stifle the DPRK has reached extremity pursuant to the strategy.

                         Far from drawing a lesson from the defeat in the war in the 1950s, the U.S. has intensified isolation, blockade and suffocation of the DPRK in a bid to ignite the second Korean war"

The DPRK NDC explain that the DPRK will not sit with folded arms but will wage  a strong nationwide anti-US struggle. If the US wants to belatedly make amends for its criminal wrongdoing on the Korean peninsula , it should raise a white flag and kneel down before the Korean people.

Our organisations strongly support the appeal of the DPRK NDC for the world people to wage  e worldwide anti-U.S. struggle to dismember the gangster U.S. imperialists ! We are pleased to support this appeal. It is an inspiration that a ruling party of a socialist country has taken such a stand and this is a most laudable initiative that deserves support . The DPRK is the only country in the world to take such a strong anti-US stand !
                     The US imperialists are the most shameless chieftain of aggression and ringleader of international reaction as well as the bulwark of neo-colonialism and the biggest international exploiter . Lets turn out in the worldwide anti-US, anti-imperialist struggle !
LONG LIVE THE DPRK !
VICTORY TO THE KOREAN PEOPLE !
DOWN WITH US IMPERIALISM

KCNA Commentary Blasts Opening of "UN Human Rights Office" in Seoul

 Pyongyang, June 25 (KCNA) -- The hostile forces including the U.S. and the south Korean puppet forces set up the "UN office for human rights performance" in Seoul.
     This shows that they have reached an extremely provocative phase in their moves to stamp out the ideology and social system in the DPRK under the pretext of "human rights issue".
     The "office" is an illegal organization which the south Korean puppet forces and their followers cooked up in order to do harm to a sovereign state in wanton violation of the UN Charter and international law, being pursuant to the U.S. scenario.
     We have warned more than once that the opening of the "office" would be an unpardonable anti-DPRKcriminal act of escalating tension on the Korean peninsula and in the region and inciting confrontation.
    However, the setting up of this ghost-like "office" is a hideous politically-motivated provocation blatantly challenging the dignity and social system of the DPRK.
     The hostile forces claim the opening of the "office" is pursuant to the "resolution" of the UN Human Rights Council but they can never hide their conspiratorial nature.
     The U.S. and the south Korean puppet forces seek to make south Korea a base of breeding plots over "human rights" and internationalize the anti-DPRK "human rights" racket with the "office" as a centre. They organized the UN "seminar on human rights in the north" and "seminar attended by defectors from the north" in New York as part of arrangements for the opening of the "office" and made a string of nonsense against the DPRK in a bid to do harm to its inviolable sovereignty and dignified social system.
     The "office" is nothing but a tool for executing the U.S. hostile policy toward the DPRK and a plot-breeding center collecting misinformation fabricated by the riff-raffs for money. It, therefore, regards anti-DPRK activities as a means for its existence.
     Anti-DPRK "human rights" campaign is the only mission of the "office".
     The puppet forces allowed the establishment of the "office" which is rejected by other countries, a clear indication that their inveterate repugnance against the ideology and social system of the fellow countrymen and deep-seated ambition for escalating confrontation have reached the extremity.
     It is a pipe dream for the U.S. and the puppet forces to try to bring down the DPRK by such despicable means and methods as the opening of the "office".
     The opening of the "office" has touched off towering indignation of the army and people of the DPRK.
     The hostile forces will be forced to pay a dear price for setting up the "office". -0-

Deplorable State of S. Korean Workers Disclosed

  Pyongyang, June 24 (KCNA) -- The National Reunification Institute issued a white paper Wednesday disclosing the miserable state of south Korean workers attributable to the puppet forces' unpopular rule.
    The number of the unemployed has shown an exponential increase in recent years, becoming a serious social problem, the white paper said, and went on:
    The number was over 3.5 million in 2013 which rose to at least 4.5 million in 2014 and more than 500 000 of them gave up employment. And the number of underemployed increased to 10 million from 8 million in the period.
    What is all the more serious is the problem of jobless young people.
    Earlier this year the rate of young people without job was 21.8 percent, an increase from the time of massive unemployment that was caused by group bankruptcy after 1997 currency run. The rate was estimated to be higher than the average unemployment rate among the member nations of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development and regions.
    University graduates without jobs showed a record high of 2.75 million.
    The severity of youth unemployment in south Korea can be seen in the fact that youth are giving up love, marriage and childbirth plus housing and getting relations with people.
    This notwithstanding, the present chief executive is enticing young people into going abroad, saying they can get jobs only when they go abroad.
    But young south Koreans only meet national humiliation and contempt and miserable death.
    The proportion of part-time workers under less than a year contract has reached 37.1 %, the highest among major capitalist countries and in the region.
    What is all the more deplorable is the pervasive "status system" which says children with part-time worker parents have to be part-timers.
    The white paper revealed the fact that south Korean workers are doing labor under extremely poor working conditions.
    According to data underreported by the south Korean relevant authorities, the number of victims of industrial disaster was over 90 900 or more than 240 on a daily average across south Korea last year and among them the number of those who suffered from accidents were more than 83 200 and victims of occupational disease by harmful materials were over 7 600.
    The mortality rate due to industrial disaster topped the world list being 2 or 4 times higher than that in major capitalist countries.
    CNN in an article introducing south Korea in August last year said weekly work hours of workers in south Korea is 12 hours longer than an average work hours of people in other parts of the world, adding daily sleeping hours of south Korean workers are less than six hours.
    Yet, they fail to get even the minimum wages for doing hard work.
    In south Korea where the jungle law prevails, employment crime whereby the rights of workers are mercilessly violated is ubiquitous.
    What is all the more serious is that teenagers, the disabled and women are taken as "labor force easy to be hired with meager wage".
    Child labor is internationally banned but teenagers are subject to harsh forced labor in south Korea today.
    74.2 percent of teenagers working in the service fields in Seoul are doing slave labor without contract. Exploitation of the disabled is making people tremble with horror as it is beyond human imagination.
    According to a report released by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, the rate of women taking part in economic activities and their employment rate, ages 25 to 54, are 62.8 percent and 61.2 percent each, the lowest among the member countries and in the region.
    What is all the more problematic is the serious sexual violence committed against women workers at work sites.
    In March this year the British magazine Economist ridiculed at the worst discrimination against south Korean women in the world.
    A broad segment of the toiling masses of south Korea are protesting against the present authorities' unpopular labor policy that benefits the big businesses.
    More than 20 workers committed suicide unable to stand suppression of trade unions and lay-off after the present regime took office.
    Workers are staging sit-ins, risking their lives.
    Getting all the more fierce is protest of workers against the unpopular rule by the authorities keen on intensifying suppression.
    All facts go to clearly prove that south Korea is the world's worst tundra of human rights and a dark society where democracy and human rights can not be found.
    However, the present south Korean ruling quarters slander the most advantageous labor system in the DPRK where genuine popular policies are enforced and speak ill of those who are working abroad with an intention to be helpful to the system. This is a ridiculous provocative act.
    The puppet forces should clearly understand that their anti-DPRK "human rights" racket in collusion with outsiders will precipitate their destruction. -0-
