U.S. officer's private memo paints a doomsday scenario for Korea

SEOUL — U.S. military officers in Korea are privately saying that North Korea has succeeded in its campaign to turn the South Korean public against the United States and break up the once rock-solid U.S.-Republic of Korea military alliance.

A senior U.S. officer, in a private memorandum to a network of friends and pro-U.S. contacts in Korea, predicted that in the next one to five years the Combined Forces Command, responsible for U.S.-ROK operations and training, will be dissolved while the United Nations command, set up in 1950 at the outset of the Korean War, will move to Hawaii.

The implications, he suggested, are dire for South Korea's ability to cope with a crumbling, heavily-armed communist North Korea with powerful anti-U.S. allies in the neighborhood.
