It could have achieved unification of Korea by military force if it, had been allowed to go forward last summer American and other allied United Nations military commanders have never been sure of their ability to unify Korea by force of arms, as long as there is Chinese and Russian Intervention. Also, UN commanders have doubted the ability of the South Koreans to hold their country together, even if It were unified by force of arms. South Korea's President Syng- man Rhee himself has said his country would need a million men under arms to restore order throughout the country and protect its Yalq River boundary on the north.
