American General Douglas MacArthur (center)

accepts the flag of the United Nations Command for

his momentous service in the KOrean War of 1950.

The Korean War, which began on June 25, 1950, with a

surprise attack on the unprepared South by

overwhelmingly superior forces from the Communist

North, was a direct result of the ill-advised division of the

nation after Japan’s defeat in World War Two.

Moreover, the fanatical northern regime- encouraged and

equipped by Stalin-schemed to take over the entire

peninsula.

Their sudden onslaught was blunted and reversed by

expeditionary forces dispatched by sixteen United Nations

members after the Security Council approved the

intervention.

But Communist China sent its forces into the fray, resulting

in an eventual stalemate along approximately the old line

of division.

Truce talks dragged on in the midst of bldood spilled in

inconclusive fighting until a fragile armistice, which still

continues, was signed on July 27, 1953.

The most lasting damage from the Korean War though-still

felt today-was the hardening of the division and animosity

between South and North Koreans.

lt is time to strengthen the Korea-US military alliance.

While there has been controversy between conservatives

and progressives toward the US troops stationed in Korea,

US-Korea relations have soured to the point where it is a

source of worry. Now within the US government, there is a

strong movement no longer to share stratgic information

with Korea.

Many issues, including North Korea’s nuclear weapons,

security of the Korean peninsula, GPR (Government

Policy Review),and Korea’s sudden reliance on China,

have created friction with the US government.

lt is very disappointing that there has been a cooling off of

relations between Korea and the United States, especially

from the MacArthur period where the US and Korea were

such great allies. ls it possible for Korea to ensure its

bright future with such a cloud overhead? The Korean

government and people should know that a strong US-

Korea military alliance is a secure long-term investment

and directly relates to the credibility of Korea in the world.

By recognizing this, l believe that the current government

should try to improve relations with the US through better

military cooperation and diplomacy.
