Korea Campaign Criticised [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Daily Mercury — 11 July 1950
Korea Campaign Criticised SIR.— The real state of affairs in Korea is revealed by the statements' ..of Lieut.-Colonel Thomas MacClure, of the U.S. Air Force Reserve, who has ' just , returned from Korea after four Describing the hard battle the U.S. would have to suppress the Korean people/he said 'One of the main reasons is , that the South Koreans hate us . . . the South Koreans will work in the rice paddies during the day just as peaceful as you please. But at night they will form into gangs of marauders, crippling equipment, killing every Ameri can. they can.' He also states (what is obvious from the 'performances' of the 'South Korean army) that . the South Koreans are not inter ested in fighting their brothers. So it turns out that the American Army is not only fight ing the North Koreans, but also the South Koreans — that is, the whole Korean people, who desire their country to be united, to be independent, and who want nationalisation of industry to be carried out and land t...
Mr. Fackender In Reply [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Daily Mercury — 11 July 1950
Mr. Fackender In Reply SIR. — Your correspondent, 'Dinkum Aussie', indicated by his complete disregard for facts regarding Korea that he would indeed be injudicious . to enter into public debate on the sub ject. Mav I draw hi« attention to a few of the many facts which indicate where the blame for aggression in Korea lies? 1. A number of threats of ag gression have recently been made by Southern leaders. An example appeared in Press re ports on November 1, 1949, which stated: 'The South Korean Defence Minister, Sihn Sung Mo announced yesterday his army was 'ready and wait ing' to invade Communistcon trolled North Korea, but was be jng restrained by U.S. officials.' The same report quoted Presi dent Rhee as saying that his (government would not tolerate a divided Korea much longer. 'If we have to settle this thing by war we will do the fighting needed ? we are strong enough to march 'up and take the Communist capital within a 2.

'Common Cause' On Korea [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Daily Mercury — 11 July 1950
'Common Cause' On Korea SIR.— Will you spare me just a little space in your valuable journal to draw attention to a very ominous happening? Southern District miners will view with sincere disgust and alarm the attitude taken by the individuals responsible for the set-up : of the miners' official organ, 'Common Cause,' which came out last week with scream ing headlines of 'Hands Off Korea.' * . The mining community of this district, were prepared, a few years ago, when another aggres sor had designs, on this coun try, to do all in their power and make any ' sacrifice, along with all other members of the com munity possessed of the small est spark of pride of race, to stem the progress of a savage aggressor, and if I am any judge, have no more desire to have their families subject to the savagery and bombs of Russian and Kor ean Communists tha,n they had for those of the Japanese and German Nazis. Those who are responsible for the 'Hands Off Korea' cam paign .are the 1 very people who...
Miners' Attitude To Korea [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Daily Mercury — 12 July 1950
Miners' Attitude To Korea SIR — If the letter over the nomde plume 'Southern Miner' in your issue of Tuesday, July 11 was designed to bring me in, it has achieved its objective. If, ! however, it was designed to con vey to the public the idea that Southern District miners were in favour of war, it has failed dismally. 'Common Cause' the ollicial organ of our organisation, never at any , time appears with screaming headlines, but at all times puts forward the policy of the Miners' Federation as de termined by convention, Central Council and the rank-and-file themselves. Consequently, any disgust that Southern District miners may have at the present mpment could anly be directed to some person who apparently has not the intestinal fortitude to sign his own name over his public statement, and it must be obvious to anyone who reads his article that he is NOT a miner. The mining community of this uiainot was [n^atuu, ti years ago, and will always be prepared to fight any aggressor who ha...
