S. Korean Authorities' Wretched Plight Derided

A spokesman for the Consultative Council for National Reconciliation in a statement on September 15 derided the south Korean authorities who were driven into a tight corner in the face of a flurry of criticism of their "north policy" at home and abroad.

There is nothing for them to get embarrassed with and they should not blame others for it, the statement said, and went on:

As for the present south Korean authorities' "north policy", it is blamed as "an uncertain policy devoid of clear target", "policy for currying favor with master", "policy carrying false and intrusive assertions" and "policy shunning the desire and requirements of the nation".

By nature, the present south Korean authorities' "north policy" is full of troublesome and controversial points and is devoid of essence that it is destined to get scrapped.

"Simultaneous realization of dialogue and pressure", its alleged keynote point, is enough to prove its nature as extremely contradictory and unrealizable sophism.

The puppet authorities' "north policy" is nothing different from the one-sided policy of confrontation pursued by the Lee Myung Bak and Park Geun Hye conservative regimes.

Question is what the south Korean authorities met for pursuing the futile "north policy".

The north-south relations plunged into a stalemate even before making a start and the south Korean authorities faced a wretched plight, being snubbed and rejected everywhere they went.

What matters here is that the south Korean candlelight demonstrators who played a key role in the emergence of the present regime began to turn their backs on the regime, displeased with the things done by it.

The south Korean authorities should come to their senses, though belatedly, and draw a due lesson from their wretched plight.

They have to make a responsible option-whether to pursue the policy for confrontation with the fellow countrymen through sycophancy toward the U.S. while reading the face of the U.S. and the puppet conservative group only to meet miserable ruin or whether to join hands with the fellow countrymen and opt for improving the north-south relations from the stand of national independence as wished by all the Koreans and the candlelight demonstrators.
