Why communists love the World Cup

The following commentary by Foster Richards is from Fight Back! News:

Hands off Korea!

The following article is from the Communist Party of Great Britain (Marxist-Leninist):

On Friday 26 March, a south Korean navy vessel, the Cheonan, split into two and sank. At the time, the vessel was 8 miles off the coast of the DPRK and 150 miles from the south Korean mainland. However, it was very close to the island of Baengnyeong, which, while clearly part of north Korea geographically, is in fact held by south Korea, having been bartered during the 1953 armistice talks in exchange for some land, greater in area, south of the 38th parallel to be incorporated into the DPRK.

The sinking of the Cheonan: Another Gulf of Tonkin incident

The following analysis of recent US/south Korean accusations against Democratic Korea is by Stephen Gowans, from his blog, What’s Left:

While the South Korean government announced on May 20 that it has overwhelming evidence that one of its warships was sunk by a torpedo fired by a North Korean submarine, there is, in fact, no direct link between North Korea and the sunken ship.
