Ulterior Aim Sought by US-S. Korea in Extending Transfer of OPCON Blasted

Pyongyang, July 3 (KCNA) -- Traitor Lee Myung Bak during his recent foreign trip committed such treachery as begging U.S. President Obama to extend the "transfer of wartime operation control (OPCON)" till 2015 and wresting an agreement on the proposal.
Rodong Sinmun Saturday observes in a signed commentary in this regard:
The above-said action betrays the scenario for a war of aggression pursued by the United States and the south Korean puppet group against the DPRK as it was a product of the sordid collusion and tie-up between the American master and his servant.
As a matter of fact, the extension of the transfer of the OPCON is little short of completely giving up the command over the armed forces of south Korea.
The group created a "security crisis" under the pretext of the warship case and adamantly opposed the transfer of the OPCON, giving the impression that something very serious would happen if south Korea received it from the U.S. under that pretence. But this is nothing but sheer sophism to cover up its traitorous nature and an unpardonable mockery and insult to the south Korean people.
It is the U.S. that got windfall from the extension of the transfer of the OPCON. The Obama administration behaves as if it had done for south Korea great favor at the south Korean puppet authorities' "request" though it was its commitment to transfer it. Lurking behind this is a sinister aim of the U.S.
It is by no means fortuitous that the above-said action created rumor that the U.S. has an initiative in all aspects such as the issue of concluding "a free trade agreement" with the south Korean puppet authorities, the issue of "sharing the upkeep for the U.S. forces " and the issue of dispatching troops to Afghanistan and the south Korean people have come under all the ensuing enormous burdens.
Having the south Korean authorities in its tight clutches in the wake of the extension of the transfer of the OPCON, the U.S. is now seeking to use the conservative group as a shock brigade for igniting a war of aggression against the DPRK.
Through its imploration and dirty bargaining for the extension of the transfer of the OPCON the Lee group self-exposed in the eyes of the world that it is the most faithful lackeys of the U.S., concludes the commentary.
