  • Dear Myung Back Lee for president.

    Greetings.

    In my opinion, the Korean people must vote first whoever their candidate is. If Mr. Myung Bak Lee is elected, he should be investigated and follow the results it he was wrong. we must have a good and clean government. These candidates should be also checked if any of them has questionable records.

    I would like to point out important aspects of my national defense policy.

    Needless to say our country is still separated North and South.

    We all pray that unified happy days’ one Korea would come to us sooner.

    Meantime, I wish you to know that our country owes very much to other United Nations members during the Korea War who came to save our lives and our South Korea.

    Now we are prosperous because of our hard work and the early days’ friendly economic aids from United States and other countries. We never foreget their humanitarian aids given to us when we were in the communist mascara and in agony. We thank you for the people of the friendly nations that helped us. Seventeen nations come to help us. Especially the United States sent largest army among them suffered largest number of casualties. We thank American people sanctified for us so much.

    I believe time has come for us to help other people in hardship of war and disasters.

    Now I have a dream to reflect our historic national experiences as a form of the national morality to international community as a civilized nation.

    Now we become an economically strong among the advanced nations. We have to try to pay back our debts of love and peace to other nations.

    One way to do is to send our people to help other people in disaster of other lands. This mission is humanitarian mission to help the needy people because they helped us when we suffered during the cruel Korean War.

    Our Korean army fought bravely against the enemies. We thank them.

    In a way, the Korean military force could act as humanitarian army for peace and love for international relief tasks.

    Now Koreans become respectable as we can pay back our debts to other people. So that we could maintain the national prosperity and international peace. To do these we need a strong and humanitarian army for us all.

    We need a strong national army to accomplish our people’s goal.

    Thank you again for those who helped us during the war and peace. Merry Christmas Happy a new year.

    We thank you them

    UN member nations

    Sincerely yours,

    Chae S. Sone
