Per the Yalta Agreement this occupation was supposed to be temporary by both
the United States and the Soviet Union, lasting only until all Japanese had
been repatriated to Japan and a central government, elected by Koreans in
both northern and southern areas, could be formed...........
Lee Sik Man (Sygman Rhee) in what now became "South Korea."
"Shortly thereafter the North Korean Central Committee (North
Korea's ruling body) decided that since they couldn't take over the south
by subversion, they would use force and they decided this invasion had to
take place before South Korea could develop an effective army."
Sounds like a standard history from the Pentagon's textbook!
I would give only "C" grade for the report.
The division of Korea at the 38th Parallel was not decided at Yalta!
It was unilaterally drawn by the US State-War-Navy Coordinating Committee a
days before Japan's surrender to prevent Soviet forces from
occupying the whole Korean peninsula.
The correct name for the pro-US Korean leader is Syngman Rhee(This was
his English name he used).
What is your source of info for the conclusion that N.Korea's ruling party
decided on invasion? (The correct name is Korean Labor Party)
