The fact is the ROK would not have existed, if it wasn't for the intervention by the US in the K ...
The UN, which was dominated by the west in the 1950s
To me it doesn't matter who it was dominated by. It was the only international entity worthy of declaring anything, and in this case it declared north's act an illegal invasion of the south, and reacted accordingly.
If the US withdrawal [from UN] comes to pass, would you say that the US is an illegal country?
Of course not. Being a member of the UN or not has no role in determining the validity or legality of a country. Countries are validated by other countries recognizing them.
However, I believe that UN has and should have the authority to condemn actions of nations, whether those nations are members in UN or not. If USA does withdraw, it does not give them license to go on illegal rampages any more than they did while in UN.
Did you hint that your country folks were in the habit of jumping ship as you pleased? Not a good predisposition, if it is true.
Then you should be interested to find out, that in WW2 Finland was allied with Nazi Germany, because it was seen as necessary choice to stop Soviet invasion. Lesser of two evils, and the right choice, as history since then has proved.
In these kinds of decisions most sovereign nations choose their paths as they please.
However, when Finland went from Sweden to Russian domination, that sovereiignty did not exist.
The people in Finland had little say in the matter (although it is generally considered a lucky chance for Finland). It was an arragement between Sweden and Russia - my country (or what would later be established as such) was just a pawn in a game of then-powers in northern Europe.
