September 1950
New Republic;9/25/50, Vol. 123 Issue 13, p5
The article reports on the implications of Korean war. The forces of United Nations (UN) are advancing and it seems that Koreans cannot hold out for long. The chance of keeping China and Russia out of the Korean war may turn on the kind of Korea that the UN decides it is fighting for. The Republic of Korea holds a third of the UN lines. Its casualties are heavy. Its claims are strong. The peace aims of its government are clear. It insists on its right to govern all Korea after the unconditional surrender of the North Korean forces has been secured. The United Nations, by the assembly resolution of November, 1947, and all succeeding resolutions and reports, has committed itself irrevocably to the unification of Korea.
