A spokesman for the National Peace Committee of Korea (NPCK) issued a statement Saturday over the fact that the south Korean ruling quarters take irresolute attitude toward the issue of THAAD deployment.
Noting that the struggle of people from all walks of life demanding the cancellation of THAAD deployment is now getting intensified in south Korea, the statement said:
However, the "Liberal Korea Party" and other conservative groups and political philistines assert that the withdrawal of THAAD may undermine the south Korea-U.S. alliance and cause "division of public opinion", and the new south Korean authorities are taking an ambivalent approach to the public demand for the withdrawal of THAAD under such pretexts as "prudent solution" and "procedures of approval by the National Assembly".
To deploy THAAD or to withdraw it would serve as a cornerstone discerning the acts of sycophancy toward outsiders from the stand of prioritizing the nation, and there should be no compromise here, the statement said, clarifying the following principled stand:
1. THAAD deployment is a traitorous act of leaving the land of south Korea as the eternal advanced military base for the U.S. realization of strategy for world domination.
The south Korean authorities have to make its stand clear, well aware that the deployment is a senseless and traitorous act of drawing water to the U.S. mill for a nuclear war and providing it with a foothold for aggression.
2. The deployment is a thrice-cursed act of treachery that would reduce the Korean peninsula into a theatre for nuclear war of big powers and invite unprecedentedly terrible disaster.
If the south Korean authorities approves the deployment to toe the U.S. line, it will be recorded as a treachery putting the "Ulsa (1905) five traitors" into the shade.
The south Korean authorities have to make a bold decision of withdrawing THAAD without delay, mindful that the nation is seriously watching them.
3. The deployment constitutes a crime against the nation as it is aimed to remove the nuclear sword of justice that would guarantee the dignity, security and eternal prosperity of the nation, with the help of aggressors.
The south Korean authorities should bear deep in mind the fact that the act of the conservative group to get rid of the nuclear treasured sword of justice by introducing THAAD is just a foolish and traitorous deed.
THAAD deployment is one of the worst evils done by the Park Geun Hye group and its withdrawal is a strong demand of the candlelight demonstrators and the irreversible trend of the times.
Anyone who allows the U.S. THAAD deployment for aggression would be forsaken and sternly punished by the nation just like the group of conservatives.
