The main context of the papers from the case to the theory. Summarize some laws in the practice of international relations, and then promoted to the theory from case studies. The case is the US-South Korea nuclear relationship between theory League contradiction. US-South Korea nuclear relationship is part of the US-ROK alliance relationship, and which the performance of the more dramatic features more obvious part of this article is extracted from the US-South Korea nuclear relationship features some of the contradictory qualities of alliance. US-South Korea nuclear relationship practice, including the content and impact of the US-South Korea nuclear relationship. US-South Korea nuclear relationship between the content of South Korea, the United States both to protect and constraints. US-South Korea nuclear relationship alliance functions show the unity of opposites. On the one hand, the functionality of the League of confrontation and conflict. On the other hand, the function of the League is also a unified, regional security on the Korean Peninsula, the United States hopes to achieve through this alliance structure. The impact of the US-South Korea nuclear relationship indicates that the U.S. nuclear protection of South Korea is an important factor leading to North Korea's nuclear development. Affect troop withdrawal in the balance after the mid-1970s, respond to the perceived North Korean offensive posture, and abatement Korea's nuclear motivation factors together, the USFK strengthen the momentum of the nuclear threat, and this trend of North Korea important role in promoting nuclear project start. So far, the post-Cold War extended nuclear deterrence provided by the United States to South Korea but also to promote one of North Korea's continuing nuclear development factors. In order to ensure that South Korea not to develop nuclear weapons, the United States recognized the nuclear umbrella to South Korea, this block of South Korea's future nuclear development, but also to prevent North Korea an important factor in the future of nuclear abandonment. The impact of the US-South Korea nuclear relationship showed the same alliance affect the complexity and contradiction. Allies get more security efforts will cause opponents more insecure, the interaction then led alliance parties unsafe. US-South Korean nuclear relations practice research alliance contradictions theoretical research provides an important revelation. US-South Korea nuclear relationship can be summarized as alliance function contradictory. This paper argues that, before 1945, the contradictory nature of the alliance function is not obvious, the league basically against external threats of military blocs. In 1945, the alliance function of the contradictions start obviously manifested internal constraint functions of the alliance began to rise for the league's another important function. This paper argues that the changes in the international power structure, the strengthening of the alliance control the cost of change and interdependence degree main factors League contradictory changes. Confederate contradictions theory after the Cold War, NATO's survival and development, strengthening of the US-Japan alliance functions, and the alliance nonproliferation constraints phenomenon to explain. The impact of the US-South Korea nuclear relationship can be summed up the impact of the alliance contradictions. Proposed alliance complex effects on the basis of summing up the US-South Korea nuclear relationship and the US-ROK alliance affect two-run path: First, the opponents of the \- Opponents unsafe path. Strengthen the cause of the post-Cold War eastward expansion of NATO and the United States-Japan alliance security dilemma problem, you can use the first path to explain. US-Soviet detente in the 1970s then turn to the case of confrontation, you can use the second path to explain. Similarly, after cycle analysis of the contradictions in the U.S. and South Korea - North Korea Mutual Security abstract alliance affect the the contradictions cycle model. The fact that American and European Union of the Cold War with the Soviet Union Mutual Security and after the Cold War, NATO's eastward expansion and Russia interactive, you can use the contradictions of the alliance affect circulation model to explain. This paper also proposed alliance concept of steady state and impact factors to assess league contradictory. League steady state can be divided into three levels of fit for the league, the league swing and alliance crisis. Alliance of common interests and interdependence League fundamental determinants of the steady state. The alliance between institutional arrangements to some extent, restricted the conversion between the Confederate States. Allies recent behavioral factors is a direct reflection of the alliance an important indicator of the steady state. This article using the steady state of the alliance metrics assess the extent of the contradiction between the U.S. and South Korea, the United States and Britain, the United States and France, virtue, the US-Japan alliance. Alliance contradictory theories on the settlement of the DPRK nuclear issue is an important revelation. The United States needs to recognize that it makes Korea feel safe behavior, and allows North Korea feel strongly unsafe. Only to recognize their historical responsibility, the United States will promote the settlement of the DPRK nuclear issue and sincerely. North Korea needs to realize that the behavior of the United States is sometimes not necessarily for myself, but to appease Korea. This point a deep understanding will increase the confidence of North Korea's security. South Korea need to recognize that, when the United States tried to easing by the United States and North Korea to resolve the security issues, South Korea needs to overcome the worry about being abandoned by the United States. Alliance contradictory theory of our future alliance strategy for the use of some inspiration. China will be possible in the course of future growth will gradually alliance strategy to deal with the affairs of the surrounding. Take an open alliance strategy will lead against the national discontent. Vague, informal alliance strategy, internal management functions while emphasizing the alliance will diminish mistrust and suspicion of some potential rival countries. Of course, too much emphasis on the alliance's internal functions easily lead to a decline in the cohesion of the alliance and allies centrifugation. Therefore, the use of the alliance strategy requires a high diplomatic skills to balance the external and internal features of the League. This is the only way to make a contribution to a positive role of the alliance strategy for China's peaceful development.
