Background: Pro-American demonstrators in Seoul, S. Korea, July 18, urged the U.S. and Britain to accept them as volunteers for the Middle East.
With banners proclaiming support of the U.S. dispatch of Marines to Lebanon, a mass rally, organised by the Federation of Patriotic Organizations, asked to be allowed to take part in the "anti-Communist crusade in the Middle East."
The rally adopted messages to be sent to the heads of the three Western Powers, S. Korea and Jordan assuring wholehearted support of the U.S. action in Lebanon and the U.K. action in Jordan.
