As one of the so-called "important Asian allies" of the United States, South Korea has been cautiously defending the favor of the United States. A decision made on the 11th is a naked humiliation for South Korea.
According to Observer.com on July 11, citing Yonhap News, the US-led "United Nations Command" is advancing the approval of Japan to join the United Nations troop-contributing country.
reported that multiple sources in the South Korean government said that the United States is actively seeking ways to make the "United Nations Command" play a greater role. For this reason, the United States hopes to make the "United Nations Command" 7 rear bases. The host country, Japan, has also joined the ranks of troop-contributing countries and can send troops and equipment to the peninsula in an emergency.
In addition, the U.S. Army Command in South Korea released the "2019 Strategic Outline of the U.S. Army in South Korea" on the same day. In this outline, for the first time, the content of "cooperating with Japan in providing military support" was written. It is believed that in the event of an emergency, other troop-contributing countries of the "United Nations Army" will gather their forces in Japan, and Japan should also join it.
In fact, there are two issues involved first. As early as 1975, the United Nations General Assembly passed Resolution 3390 to dissolve the "United Nations Command", but the U.S. military has not been disbanded; this decision by the United States now means that as long as the United States agrees, the Japanese Self-Defense Forces can be deployed directly Korea.
This is undoubtedly a great humiliation to South Korea, not only because the Self-Defense Forces are stationed in South Korea, but South Korea itself cannot say no; more importantly, because Japan has announced restrictions on the export of semiconductor and OLED materials to South Korea. , Resulting in a mess between South Korea and Japan, and the hostility towards Japan has become more intense.
In fact, when the trade dispute between Japan and South Korea started, South Korea took a variety of measures to deal with it. Among them, South Korea most hoped that the United States would intervene. However, South Korea did not wait to come to the United States to pull a hand, but was stabbed severely, and then stepped on!
Of course, the United States did this for a purpose. Although Japan also has its own small ninety-nine, Japan is not willing to give in too much in the US-Japan trade dispute; but compared to South Korea, Japan obviously has to cooperate Many, especially in how to serve President Trump, Abe is more knowledgeable than Moon Jae-in.
In contrast, South Korea now has too many ideas of its own, such as wanting to lead the development of the peninsula, wanting to fight for more autonomy, and even South Korea’s first lady wearing an "anti-THAAD" badge to Trang in person Putting his face on the face, wait; now the United States wants to let South Korea know what status he is.
In fact, The United States wants a lot of things from South Korea, such as the Joint Defense Treaty of the United States, Japan and South Korea, an unequal trade agreement in which the United States occupies a 100% advantage, and a South Korean government South Korea's US military expense sharing agreement, and South Korea's attitude that it will never go against the will of the United States on any international issues , etc.
In fact, when the South Korean government learned that the United States was going to allow the Japanese Self-Defense Forces to deploy South Korea without hiding the Blue House, Moon Jae-in probably already knew what the United States wanted, but could he afford it? ?
