On August 28, Huan Qiu Network of China carried an article contributed by a security expert at the Institute for International Strategy in Bangladesh, entitled “Why Should U.S. Army in South Korea Withdraw”.

At the beginning of the article, he noted that the stationing of U.S. troops in south Korea cannot be deemed to be a just bid to defend south Korea or to defend the values of “democracy”.

He went on as follows:

The continued stationing of U.S. troops in south Korea has always been a factor obstructing the diplomatic solutions and disturbing the stability in the region; and the U.S. has constantly been taking issue with the nuclear and missiles activities of the DPRK so as to accelerate the arms race in the region.

If only the U.S. had made an attempt at normalizing the DPRK-U.S. relations, lifting sanctions and concluding peace agreement, and if only the U.S. had withdrawn its troops from south Korea, the situation on the Korean peninsula would have taken a different course. Likewise, if it hadn’t pursued the hostile policy towards the DPRK, the nuclear issue on the Korean peninsula wouldn’t have been generated in the first place.

Today, the relentless reinforcement of the U.S. troops in south Korea and in the region is now turning into the means for implementing the disastrous U.S. strategy to contain China. The U.S. has set the formation of alliance against China as its greater goal and is using the nuclear issue to drive a wedge between the north and the south.

The current Ukrainian crisis shows how dangerous consequences might ensue from such restricting measures and military reinforcement. Now is the time to stand against the catastrophic phenomenon of militarization which is spiraling out of control day by day.

His claim makes perfect sense and it is only the tip of the iceberg of world public opinion on the aggressive nature of the U.S. troops in south Korea.

The U.S. is actually and deliberately aggravating the tension in the region by bringing in a large number of latest military equipment such as Terminal High Altitude Area Defense System (THAAD), the weapon that well transcends the Korean peninsula in its radius of action and by defiantly staging various kinds of aggressive joint military drills in south Korea. On the other hand, the U.S. is scheming to expand the scope of its operation and enhance the role of the U.S. troops in south Korea, making a fuss about the possible “Taiwan emergency”.

The reality clearly shows that the U.S. troops in south Korea are resident armed forces of aggression for maintaining military supremacy in the region and the cancer-like being which only causes tension and undermines peace and stability, not the troops deployed for “defending” its ally.
