ABSTRACT
In this article the author focuses on arguments against operational control (OPCON) transition that revolves around the lack of readiness within the military command structure of the Republic of Korea (ROK). He notes the significance of the transition to underline the military and economic strength of South Korea. The likeliness of wartime control as a symbol of ROK sovereignty which counters the accusations of American puppeteering to North Korea is cited.
