KCNA Commentary Blasts Park Geun Hye Group's Political Terrorism

Pyongyang, February 3 (KCNA) -- It was disclosed that the Park Geun Hye group has suppressed and persecuted personages of different social standings after secretly putting them on black lists.
The above-said lists, alias "black list," "blue list," and "list of enemy force", included personages of all social standings and even conservative figures who did not support Park or had even slight grievances against her.

Those people are subject to illegal surveillance and excluded from the list of persons to be promoted and expected to receive "government" subsidies.
This is a blatant challenge to the public as it is fascist terrorism, hideous encroachment on democracy and human rights abuses just the same as that prevailed in the era of "yusin" dictatorship characterized by the unprecedented dark rule.

Those "persons on the black lists" subject to the tyranny and arbitrary practices of the Park group include personages in the fields of culture and arts, education, media and sports and all other social circles. Officials of Chongwadae, the Intelligence Service (IS) and administrative bodies were involved in the act of mapping out those lists reminiscent of scenarios for modern-day witch hunt.

The recently disclosed case of blacklisting persons of literature and arts is a product of the cynical ploy of the puppet regime to throw many progressive persons of literature and arts behind bars after putting them on the black list in a bid to quell the anti-"government" sentiments and weather its ruling crisis.
For instance, the "black list" contained the names of 9 473 persons of literature and arts who either took part in the signature campaign to demand the repeal of the "government ordinance on ferry Sewol" or supported the declaration on the ferry disaster or voted against candidates from the ruling party in the "presidential" and Seoul mayoral elections but for candidates from opposition and independent camps.

It was Park Geun Hye who sponsored the illegal barbarous terrorism.
It is the instinctive physiology of Park to revive the repressive machinery dating back to the era of "yusin" dictatorship and enforce the intelligence-based terror politics as she wrested power the way her father, a fascist dictator, did.

In addition to intelligence and investigation institutions such as IS, the Ministry of Employment and Labor, the Ministry of Public Health and Welfare, the "Office of National Tax Administration" and other "government" offices and local power bodies were hurled into such indiscriminate political surveillance. The Park regime went the lengths of working out a document called "incumbent mayor of Seoul's leftist administration and orientation of counteraction" and conducting political surveillance aimed to check his influence.

A secretary of the Intelligence Committee of the puppet "National Assembly" was reported to have openly claimed in his radio broadcasting appearance that the security organs had nothing to be blamed as the IS conducted wiretapping and surveillance over civilians once in every four months with the permission of Park.

Consequently, south Korea has turned into a dark society where freedom and democracy and even people's elementary freedom to express their will and conduct political activities are mercilessly trampled down. This is an inevitable product of the barbarous intelligence-based politics and fascist repressive rule of traitor Park.

The puppet regime is, indeed, a group of criminals and political gangsters who make no scruple of committing any base and heinous actions for staying in power.
They are fated to go to ruin as they brandish swords of dictatorship against all compatriots, regarding them as "enemy" and "those" to be eliminated. -0-


KCNA Commentary Ridicules S. Korean Authorities' Solicitation Diplomacy

Pyongyang, January 19 (KCNA) -- The south Korean puppet forces are vying with each other to win favor of the new boss of the White House from the outset of the year, bringing bitterer shame and disgrace.

Those of Chongwadae and the puppet Foreign Ministry visited the U.S. one on the heels of the other. Shortly ago, the chief of the security office of Chongwadae had confabs with coteries of the new U.S. administration at which he begged for "close cooperation in coping with the north" while talking about "gravity and urgency of the nuclear issue of the north". Those of the defense ministry also applied for visit to the U.S. in a bid to escalate confrontation with the north.

This is a foolish act of the confrontation maniacs to keep the bankrupt campaign for garnering "cooperation in pressurizing the north" afloat with the help of their master as it is last-ditch efforts of the pro-U.S. stooges seized with fear that its hostile policy toward the DPRK may be deterred by the ever-rising strategic position of the DPRK, a nuclear power in the East.

The DPRK is making a long drive, defending peace and security of the Korean peninsula and the region as befitting its strategic position as a nuclear power of the world.
All the fellow countrymen in the north and the south and abroad have turned out in the movement for Korea's reunification, deeply moved by the noble patriotic will of the peerlessly great man to put an end to the tragic history of national division and usher in a new era of independent reunification and peace and prosperity by lifting the north-south relations from a stalemate.

But the puppet group of traitors, keen on sycophancy toward the U.S. and confrontation with the fellow countrymen, are challenging the DPRK's sincere proposal and efforts for improving the north-south relations and independent reunification by imploring for "cooperation in putting pressure on the north," getting increasingly dependent on the U.S.

The worst catastrophe of the north-south relations is attributable to the puppet forces' sycophancy and policy for confrontation with the fellow countrymen.
The Park Geun Hye group brought south Korea the present disaster due to their "pivot to America diplomacy." They are, however, still dreaming a pipedream of stifling the fellow countrymen in the north, pursuing a foolish ambition. This only reveals the true colors of the traitors that can never change.

The nation's anger at the group of traitors keen on sycophancy toward the U.S. and confrontation with the fellow countrymen is now running high. Such betes noires as well as traitor Park Geun Hye deserve the people's judgment for going crazy in confrontation with compatriots, still crying out for "sanctions on the north" and "maintenance of posture of counteraction".
All Koreans should send the group of these confrontation maniacs to their graves as early as possible. -0-


KCNA Commentary Reveals Filthy Nature of Park Geun Hye Regime

Pyongyang, December 26 (KCNA) -- The Park Geun Hye regime is in a pretty fix due to sexual scandals that break out nonstop inside and outside south Korea.
A south Korean puppet diplomat working in Chile busied himself making public a letter of apology and facing justice after a video dealing with his sexual assault on a minor of the country was posted on internet. The incumbent ambassador to a Mid-east country was revealed to have been punished on charges of sexually molesting a woman employee earlier in August. This has disgraced south Korea so much, making them unable to even go out.

The series of hideous corruption and irregularities are witnessed among high-ranking officials and all kinds of sexual scandals are rampant in society. This has become a frequent occurrence even among puppet diplomats. This proves the nature of the filthy Park regime.
Muddy spring will have muddy streams. Those who have become immoral under Park can not behave otherwise.

Park in her early 20s had had secret love affairs with Choe Thae Min, a man 40 years older than her. Sexual scandals disclosed in the puppet regime are just a tip of iceberg.
Sexual scandals run through the Park regime's diplomacy. Yun Chang Jung, former spokesman for Chongwadae, when he accompanied Park during her first junket in May 2013, was reported to have had an indecent sexual conduct with a south Korean woman in her 20s residing in the U.S., an intern at the south Korean puppet embassy in the U.S. He exposed himself to public disgrace and was dismissed from the post.

South Korean diplomats who were punished for sexual scandals number five this year and three out of ten diplomats who were punished for the past five years are reported to have been related with sexual affairs.
The sex-related crimes, committed within the puppet army, climbed to 66 percent during the Park regime.
Like master, like man. All the sexual scandals disclosed one after another have something in common with the political scandal harassing the Park regime.

This proves that the regime should have taken to the garbage ground of history long ago.
Irony is that this regime is fooling around in a bid to tarnish the dignified DPRK.
It is the height of folly for the matchless hooligans and yes-men of the coarse regime to point an accusing finger at others.
Having any dealings with the indecent regime will only bring shame and disgrace. -0-


KCNA Slams U.S. Double-dealing Nature

Pyongyang, December 13 (KCNA) -- The U.S. is craftily working, much upset by the massive struggle of the south Korean people to fundamentally transform the corrupt pro-U.S. conservative political landscape.
Since the motion on the impeachment of Park Geun Hye passed through the puppet "National Assembly", the U.S. has been busy letting high-ranking politicians pretend to express sympathy with the struggle of the south Korean people from all walks of life, asserting that "they are staging peaceful actions in a calm and responsible manner" and underscore the need to keep "invariable U.S.-south Korea alliance" and "cooperation".

The White House and the U.S. departments of State and Defense, in particular, put emphasis on "consistent" and "sustained" policies including THAAD deployment and "cooperation in the campaign against the north," shamelessly asserting that it is the U.S. stand "not to interfere" in the south Korean politics.

This double-dealing attitude of the U.S. is a product of its sinister scenario to prevent the campaign to oust Park Geun Hye from developing into an anti-U.S. struggle and prolong the pro-U.S. conservative regime in south Korea.

Looking back on history, the U.S. has left no means untried to maintain and strengthen the colonial ruling system since it installed a pro-U.S. regime in south Korea.
It was the U.S. which cooked up the first colonial regime in south Korea through "separate elections and the installing of separate government", backed the military gangsters in the operation to grab power through a bloody coup. It was again Washington which openly intervened in each presidential election in a bid to let the pro-U.S. conservative forces come to power and stay in office generation after generation.

The massive resistance against special class stooge Park Geun Hye whom the U.S. has wire-pulled after helping her seize power through intrigues is striking terror into the heart of the U.S. master.
With no rhetoric can the U.S. prop up the collapsing pro-U.S. conservative regime and hide its cynical ploy to keep south Korea as its permanent colony.

The "invariable U.S.-south Korean alliance" touted by the U.S. only reveals its brigandish scenario to preserve the master-colonial servant relations and serve its interests such as THAAD, remaining utterly indifferent to the miserable fate of its lackeys.
The candlelight actions against Park now going on in different parts of south Korea are an eruption of the pent-up grudge and anger at the group of traitors and the U.S.
This double-dealing tactics of the U.S. will only further awaken the south Korean people. -0-


S. Korean Foreign Minister's Anti-DPRK Rhetoric Blasted

Pyongyang, December 6 (KCNA) -- Yun Pyong Se, puppet Foreign Minister of south Korea, who traveled Australia days ago and talked nonsense that "provocation of the north" constitutes a direct threat even to Australia, not just south Korea. He even begged for support for settling "nuclear and human rights issues of the north".

Minju Joson Tuesday in a commentary derides this as a clich? he used to make while traveling abroad together with traitor Park Geun Hye and her yes-men to elicit international "cooperation for stifling the DPRK", and rhetoric that reveals the nature of the sycophants and traitors who can subsist only by relying on outsiders.

The commentary says:
Yun, a waiting guy for Park Geun Hye, a Ri Wan Yong of modern version and the quisling who should be finished off along with Park, is still resorting to the sinister farce for "cooperation" abroad. This is a thrice-cursed act of treachery meant to fan up the atmosphere for sanctions and pressure on the DPRK and stand up against the DPRK to the last. His despicable bid is just a desperate effort of a man more dead than alive.

The Park group of traitors have now gone desperate to prolong their remaining days in defiance of the people's strong demand for immediate resignation. But no matter what cunning sleight of hand they may employ, they can never escape the miserable end already sealed.
The broad segments of south Koreans who took to the streets holding candlelight will never pardon the group of traitors including Park and Yun. -0-


Park Geun Hye Group Can Never Escape Severe Punishment: KCNA Commentary

Pyongyang, November 14 (KCNA) -- At a time when the whole of south Korea is thrown into appalling confusion due to the "Park Geun Hye, Choe Sun Sil scandal," the U.S. and the Park regime are playing a poor trick to quell the opposition of the local people to the projected THAAD deployment.
Finding themselves in a pretty fix from all sides, the Park group are craftily working to blind the south Korean people and stop their ears and get THAAD deployed at any cost at the prodding of their U.S. master who blustered that it would "press ahead with THAAD deployment with strong will".

The group of traitors are orchestrating the farce even with discharged soldiers involved to show that THAAD does no harm to human bodies and environment. At the same time, they are staging such burlesque as granting special benefits to Kimchon City and Sonju County at huge financial expenses.
This is an absolutely risky gambling for Park troubled with a serious political crisis and financial difficulties. It is little short of a third-rate farce to calm down the mounting anti-"government" sentiments of the local people and rally again the conservative supporters who turned their backs on her.

Park is now called "vegetable president" as she allowed the woman who is no more than a witch to monopolize "state affairs." It is a sheer caricature for Park to talk about what she called measures to help the local inhabitants.
Even if the puppet regime offers "compensation running into astronomical figures" to the local people, it can never help the discharged soldiers to be dispatched to Kimchon City get rid of the enormous mental and physical harm and alleviate the pain and losses the inhabitants in Songju County have to suffer due to the loss of the position as "long-standing watermelon producer."

The co-representative of the Kimchon No-THAAD Measure Committee said the electronic waves produced by THAAD radar would penetrate into Kimchon, adding that "it would be Kimchon City which will be exposed to the first gunfire in the case of a war between China and the U.S. as reported by the Chinese People's Daily.
If THAAD is deployed in Kimchon City, the political, economic and security consequences wouldn't be confined to the city but the south Koreans would face unimaginably serious disaster.

All south Koreans, to say nothing of the people in the said areas, are categorically rejecting the projected THAAD deployment, holding that "it should not be allowed to be deployed anywhere on the Korean peninsula". This is a just voice not to tolerate the traitorous actions of the Park regime.
The Park group of traitors will never escape the nation's stern judgment as they are playing with the lives of the south Koreans and keen to turn the peninsula into a theater of big powers' scramble for bringing it under their thumb, relying on outsiders, stuck in the bottomless quagmire. -0-


U.S. Collapse Is Its Fate in History- KCNA White Paper

Pyongyang, November 6 (KCNA) -- The Korean Central News Agency on Nov. 6 issued a white paper in connection with the fact that the U.S. is being driven into the worst crisis in history. It exposed the total failure of the Obama administration and the U.S. collapse thereof.

The gist of the white paper is as follows:

The Obama regime which called for bringing a "great change" to the U.S. after shaking off the dust of history is about to be marginalized as bubble of the times, leaving the dishonor of "completely failed regime" and the worst heritage called the "U.S. collapse".

During Obama's rule the U.S. has faced the worst political and military disadvantages in history.
All kinds of external strategies set forth by the Obama regime for world hegemony have been attacked in different parts and pushed the world strategic structure that was already posing threat to the U.S. into a more unfavorable phase.

The plan for "building a world without nuclear weapons" which was set forth by Obama in the early period of his office and which helped him win a Nobel prize was put into a cesspool of history, being condemned by the world, as it fully revealed the U.S. ambition for nuclear monopoly.

The pivot to Asia-Pacific strategy put forward by the Obama administration as a core of its external strategy faced ruin from the beginning.
The Obama administration's hostile policy toward the DPRK and its strategy for dominating Asia are going totally bankrupt by the toughest counteraction of Songun Korea to terminate the empire of evil.

The moves of the Obama regime to stifle the DPRK which surpass the successive regimes have steadily pushed the DPRK to bolster up its nuclear force, making it have access to even H-bomb called "absolute weapon" on this planet.
The U.S. strategy for dominating Asia aroused immediate political and military counteraction from big neighboring powers.
Several countries of Asia have risen up against the U.S. in protest against the Obama's policy of gravely encroaching upon the dignity and interests of the sovereign states.

The failure of the Obama regime's policy toward Middle East is making the U.S. position more miserable.
The attempt to build independent armed forces which the EU has pushed forward outside NATO from the 1990s has gained strength thanks to the UK's secession from the EU, the country which has spoken for the U.S. Europe policy so far. This has made the U.S. military domination in Europe reach a phase beyond control.

The U.S. moves for domination are being rejected in Africa due to the joint actions of African countries resolutely countering the imperialist moves for aggression and intervention into internal affairs.

The U.S. is being pushed to the margin by the actions for independence against the U.S. in Latin America which was called "tranquil backyard" and dominated politically and militarily by the U.S.

The Obama's policy led the "empire of dollars" to the uncontrollable collapse.
Russia and many other countries have turned their back on the present monetary system centering on dollars and are expanding the scope of use of national currencies against the U.S. keen on dominating the financial field of other countries.

BRICS formally built their first financial bodies in July last year, squarely challenging the U.S.-led international financial system.

As regards the three year-long negotiations for TTIP on which the Obama administration has focused all efforts while advertising the building of the "largest-ever free trade zone in the world" in a bid to make the highest "achievement" in its foreign policies, the EU recently declared that Europe cannot submit to the U.S. demand, making all the U.S. efforts go for nothing.

In the period of the Obama administration, the U.S. deeply plunged into the spiritual and moral destruction and turned into the world's biggest human rights criminal state.
A decadent material life, poor mental and cultural life and reactionary political life have reached the worst phase for the first time in history.

The unethical crimes the Obama administration committed in different parts of the world made the U.S. the target of curse all around the world.
The U.S. committed the heinous massacres in Afghanistan and other parts of the world under the deceptive signboard of "defending freedom and democracy", "combating terrorism" and "protecting human rights".

The U.S. set up wiretapping facilities in more than 80 places of the world and committed illegal acts against the world ranging from ordinarily people to heads of state and from hostile states to its allies including the UN secretary general.

Owing to the criminal policy of Obama, the U.S. is on the verge of the worst political, military and economic inferiority, cultural and moral destruction and denunciation and isolation at home and abroad. Therefore, the U.S. has no future.

Not content with the "most indecent seminar on presidential election" and the "most dirty to-and-fro conflict" unprecedented in the history of the U.S. that provoked derision of the world, the U.S. is still fighting blistering presidential election race. It can be seen from this that there is neither man nor ideology nor spiritual and moral foundation to protect the country from destruction.

The complete defeat of the Obama regime foretells the collapse of the U.S.
Independence is the trend of the era and history.

The U.S. internal and external policies based on high-handed and arbitrary practices, aggression and interference, exploitation and oppression are going against the trend of history.
Therefore, they are being rejected as anachronistic policies and even its fate is being pushed into collapse.

History proves that the confrontation and war have no future and that if the people are degenerated, society gets corrupt and even politics gets degenerated, the country will naturally ruin.
The U.S., source of all kinds of evils, will certainly be buried. -0-


U.S. Should Face up to Reality: KCNA Commentary

Pyongyang, August 29 (KCNA) -- The U.S. war racket against the DPRK has reached an extremely risky phase.
The U.S. kicked off the largest-ever Ulji Freedom Guardian joint war exercise in league with the south Korean puppet forces despite the strong opposition of all Koreans and the world public.

The war rehearsal is a serious challenge to the efforts for peace and stability in the region as it is a military provocation aimed at a preemptive nuclear attack on the DPRK, to all intents and purposes.

The U.S. desperate bid to cover up its belligerent and risky nature of the war drumbeats will only betray its despicable colors as a harasser of the regional peace and stability.

It was well illustrated by the strong voices raised by the international community critical of the war racket when it was kicked off.
A Russian expert asserted that regime change and collapse of the DPRK seems to be set by the masterminds of the war drill as its general objective. He warned such war drumbeats may screw up tensions with an accidental outbreak of conflict and that premeditated escalation of military actions may lead to the second Korean war.

Xinhua also commented that the war drill simulating an all-out attack on the DPRK will cause Pyongyang's more offensive stance and worsen the already fragile and instable situation on the Korean peninsula.

Claiming the U.S. should think twice about the drill with south Korea, experts of the U.S. said north Korea would not abandon its present nuclear arsenal. It turns out, in the long run, that north Korea threatens the U.S. as the latter threatens the former, they added.

Many media and experts in the world are advising the U.S. to halt foolhardy sanctions and joint war drills and drop its wild dream of confrontation.
As claimed by the international community, the on-going war rehearsal is an aggressive and offensive one aimed at "toppling the social system" of the DPRK. Its danger and gravity are that it may further increase the possibility of armed clash in the region and cause a disastrous nuclear war, in particular.

It is the unanimous conclusion drawn by the public that the U.S. should be held wholly accountable if situation turns out worse.
This is also a warning to the U.S. that it has to behave with prudence, not running riot being ignorant of the trend of the times.

The service personnel and people of the DPRK have solemnly declared that they are capable of dealing a preemptive nuclear strike at the nuclear war maniacs attempting to deprive them of the cradle of their life and bring down their social system that represents their destiny.

The preemptive strike will be a merciless, deadly and final one.
The U.S. might not have imagined its mainland, on which no bomb has so far been dropped, reducing to ashes in a moment due to its provocation during the nuclear war drill on foreign soil.
Lamentation and regret over destruction always come too late.

The world-startling rapid development of the nuclear force of the DPRK physically guarantees its will and practice.
Now is just the time for the U.S. to face up to the reality and behave with discretion.

The U.S. persistent policy hostile to the DPRK being manifested in the nuclear war drills and increase of factors of nuclear threat will only precipitate the former's self-destruction, while making the DPRK steadily bolster its nuclear attack capability. -0-


No Haven for U.S. Pursuing Policy Hostile to DPRK- Rodong Sinmun

Pyongyang, August 10 (KCNA) -- Experts on Korean affairs and media of the U.S. and other countries in the West are deriding the Obama administration's wretched plight of plunging itself into an abyss due to its anachronistic policy hostile to the DPRK.
Commenting on this, Rodong Sinmun Wednesday says:

The above-said fact exposed once again that the hostile policies pursued by the successive chief executives of the U.S. against the DPRK, specifically the "strategic patience" policy of the present Obama administration, all have gone belly-up.
Nevertheless, Obama who has mocked the international community by touting a "world without nuclear weapons" is persisting in nuclear intimidation against the DPRK though he has already sustained a real flop while pursuing his ill-minded "strategic patience" policy.

The U.S. seeks to persist in posing nuclear threat to the DPRK by staging nuclear war drills but it is just the U.S. itself which will be struck by bigger uneasiness and horror.
What remains to be done now by the U.S. is to make a strategic choice only: whether to terminate its policy hostile to the DPRK or to face a nuclear disaster and make its mainland disappear on this planet.

The longer the policy-makers of the U.S. persist in their wild dream, the stronger the DPRK's nuclear deterrent for self-defence and merciless strike capability will get to blow up the den of aggressors.

The U.S. will never be able to sleep a sound sleep unless it lifts its policy hostile to the DPRK.
There is no haven for those attempting to stifle the DPRK.
U.S. politicians would be well advised to face up to the changed reality and behave with reason if they don't want to see the terrible destruction of the U.S. -0-


KCNA Slams Japan for Denying Its Past Crimes

Pyongyang, July 18 (KCNA) -- Shortly ago, Germany finished the first-stage project for joint edition of the history textbook which has been pressed ahead with Poland since 2006 and held a book-releasing ceremony of Vol. 1 of the textbook dealing with the periods up to the Middle Ages.

The two countries decided to wind up the joint edition of the textbook dealing with the modern history by 2020.
Germany jointly edited the history textbook dealing with the periods after the Second World War with France and is editing the textbook dealing with the European history during the periods before the 20th century.

These developments go to prove that Germany which inflicted the untold misfortune and pain upon other European countries through two world wars is striving to liquidate its inglorious past and promote reconciliation with its neighboring countries and ensure peace in Europe.

On the contrary, Japan which imposed tremendous damage and sufferings upon the Asian people in the last century is getting more frantic in its moves to distort history, far from making an apology and reparation for its past crimes.
Japan's behavior is quite different from Germany's one.
Japan is now openly distorting history to deny its past crimes and justify them in the eyes of the world and getting more frantic in its moves for reinvasion to repeat its crime-woven history.

In last December, Japan concluded a deceptive "agreement" on the issue of the sexual slavery for the Imperial Japanese Army with the south Korean puppet forces with a petty amount of money in a bid to twist the essence of the issue of the sexual slavery a proper solution of which is demanded by the world and evade the responsibility for its hideous crimes.

Not content with this, Japan kicked up much fuss, distributing the book which totally denies the sexual slavery among scholars across the world and letting the foreign ministry open to public a document which claims that "no evidence proving the forcible drafting of the comfort women by the Japanese army or under the control of the state has been confirmed".

In the so-called "statement issued in last August seven decades since Japan's defeat from the Pacific War", the present ruling forces openly clarified their criminal stand that there should be no apology for the past history, asserting that "Japan should not oblige the postwar generations to make an apology as they had nothing to do with the war ". Of late, they invited the U.S. president, their master, to visit Hiroshima in an effort to justify Japan's despicable history of crimes before the world and paint it as a "victim."

By shamelessly working to distort history the Japanese reactionaries seek to implant militarism into all fabrics of the Japanese society and thus create a climate favorable for realizing their ambition for reinvasion.

It was against the backdrop of the mounting campaign for distorting history in Japan that the new security legislation was put into force in Japan to pave the way for launching a war of aggression and to further step up arms buildup for reinvasion.

The Japanese reactionaries' moves for distorting history are, indeed, a blatant challenge to the desire of mankind for peace and security and criminal acts that deserve denunciation.
The Japanese ruling quarters are sadly mistaken if they calculate they can realize their ambition for reinvasion through such ridiculous campaign as that for tampering with history.

History teaches that those who fail to feel ashamed of their wrong past and draw a lesson from it and those who are keen to dominate the world by invading other nations are bound to meet ruin without exception.
Japan would be well advised to stop acting recklessly, bearing in mind that its wrong attitude to cover up its past crimes only precipitates its self-ruin. -0-


KCNA Slams U.S. Anachronistic Policy of Strength

Pyongyang, June 13 (KCNA) -- The U.S. is getting ever more frantic in its moves to develop ultra-modern weapons despite the opposition and rebuff by the international community.
The U.S. recently opened to public the test of new electromagnetic-orbit gun (Electromagnetic Railgun) in the wake of its long-diving test of the double-mode submarine not long ago.
Electromagnetic Railgun which fires a shell without powder explosion by using the character of the electromagnetic field was developed by the U.S. Navy with an investment of hundreds of millions of dollars. It is a weapon of mass destruction as it is called a "weapon capable of intercepting missiles of China and Russia" in the territory of the U.S.

The U.S. frantic development of the above-said weapons amid global nuclear arms race is a revelation of its anachronistic policy of strength to contain its major rivals with an unchallenged military edge and prevent its position as a "superpower" from sinking.
It is long since the position of the U.S. as the "only superpower in the world" sank owing to its criminal moves for world domination.

When the U.S. was saddled with huge national debt and in the grip of the crisis caused by economic slump due to its reckless "anti-terrorism war" and moves for establishing the system of unipolar domination, the Asia-Pacific region rapidly emerged a hub of world development in the 21st century.

The U.S. should have given up its ambition for domination which is precipitating its doom.
However, it is foolishly trying to contain China making rapid economic growth in Asia and Russia which recovered the position as a power and to dominate the Asia-Pacific region, far from drawing a lesson from its difficult position, blinded by its scenario for world domination.

Against this backdrop the U.S. came out with the pivot to Asia-Pacific strategy in which it adopted large-scale arms build-up in the region as its policy. It is part of its scenario for carrying out this strategy to step up the development of ultra-modern weapons while modernizing nuclear weapons.

This is clearly proved by the fact that on Feb. 25 the U.S. deputy secretary of Defense blustered that in the wake of test-fire of ICBM Minuteman 3, it was aimed to send a message that the weapon is capable of making a nuclear strike at big powers in the Asia-Pacific region, and U.S. reptile media are billing the electromagnetic-orbit gun as a "weapon of dream" for containing Russia and China.

It is as clear as pikestaff that the arms race and political and military tension are bound to escalate in the Asia-Pacific region due to the U.S. development of WMDs and arms build-up.

The U.S. policy of strength remains unchanged. Consequently, the moves for multi-polarization against it are sure to be stepped up.
It is self-evident that the U.S. ridiculous policy of strength can never help realize its "dream" of conquering the world.
The U.S. anachronistic strategy for domination is bound to go bust. -0-


Rodong Sinmun Accuses S. Korean Authorities of Their Moves to Increase Capability for Preemptive Attack upon DPRK

Pyongyang, May 16 (KCNA) -- The south Korean warmongers are mulling deploying four transport planes for special infiltration until next year, while seeking to secretly introduce special warfare forces and equipment in a bid to make a "surprise preemptive attack" upon the nuclear and missile facilities of the DPRK.

Meanwhile, they disclosed their intention to gradually introduce four ships supporting a special warfare for naval infiltration and 20 special infiltration crafts from 2020 while talking about operation for "disabling nuclear and missile facilities."
They are also mulling introducing global hawk while trumpeting about the "quick detection" of signs of "nuclear and missile provocations".

Rodong Sinmun Monday in a commentary denounces this as an impudent provocation to bolster up the capability for a preemptive strike at the DPRK.
The reality clearly proves that the south Korean ruling forces do not want detente and peace on the Korean peninsula and stability in Northeast Asia but work hard to lead the situation to an extreme phase of a nuclear war, the commentary says, adding:

The DPRK has stood for the peace and security on the peninsula and made positive efforts to achieve them.
But, the south Korean warmongers have resorted to military provocations while challenging the DPRK's will to preserve peace.

It is not hard to guess the consequences to be entailed by them.
The south Korean authorities should drop a foolish daydream and stop at once reckless provocations to escalate the tension and ignite a nuclear war. -0-


Nuclear Arms Race Hot among Big Powers-KCNA Commentary

Pyongyang, April 26 (KCNA) -- A nuclear arms race is getting hot among big powers to gain a strategic edge worldwide.
Recently U.S. media and military experts claimed that a new Cold War era is in the offing due to the imbalance of nuclear force among big powers including Russia and China as the Obama administration is putting increased spurs to the development of ultra-modern supersonic delivery means, while miniaturizing nuclear warheads.

According to the New York Times on April 17, the U.S. scenario to bolster up the nuclear force is to produce smaller nuclear warheads and improve the stealth capacity of delivery means and strike accuracy. Pursuant to this scenario, the U.S. is pressing forward the plan to develop five types of new nuclear warheads including the development of supersonic warheads and their delivery means.

The U.S. Center for Strategic and International Studies said in a report released last year that the U.S. should have in place nuclear warheads of diverse power fit for use at every phase of increasing nuclear threat.
The U.S. publicly declared that it would put greater spurs to the modernization of nuclear weapons including nuclear warheads-tipped missiles, nuclear strategic bombers and nuclear-powered submarines by investing 1 trillion dollars in 30 years to come, sparking off a new nuclear arms race.

The U.S. has been loudmouthed about the "nuclear disarmament" so far. This was nothing but a hypocritical slogan to weaken its strategic rivals, while covering up its moves to modernize nuclear weapons.

Russia is not hiding the fact that it is not interested in the unilateral nuclear disarmament any longer and goes its own way, now that it has become clear the U.S. has an axe to grind while playing a trick as regards the issue of nuclear disarmament.
Russia has begun to deploy long-range ballistic missiles of the new generation tipped with four smaller nuclear warheads and the Russian Navy is going ahead with the development of submarine nuclear strike means capable of reducing coastal cities to debris through radioactive contamination by exploding smaller nuclear weapons in coastal waters of the rival forces.

China has also mounted several smaller nuclear warheads on many long-range ballistic missiles and is stepping up the development of "ultra supersonic glider" capable of mounting a nuclear attack on any target in any place on the earth within one hour.
This means the start of a hot nuclear arms race in the 21st century among the U.S., Russia and China.

Recently the director of the CIA testified at the Senate Armed Services Committee it is highly likely that the nuclear arms race will be under way among the above-said countries in a manner similar to that in the Cold War era.
The prospect of the denuclearization of the world is becoming dimmer because the U.S. trumpeting about "nuclear disarmament" turned out to be hypocritical and a new nuclear arms race has become hot among big powers. -0-


KCNA Commentary Condemns Japan for Rushing Headlong into Militarism

Pyongyang, April 2 (KCNA) -- Japan obsessed with the ambition to revive militarism and launch overseas expansion has finally entered the phase of enforcing the "security legislation" on March 29 despite the strong protest and denunciation at home and abroad.

This means unhesitatingly embarking upon the road of overseas reinvasion, oblivious of the lesson taught by its defeat more than 70 years ago. It is a serious threat to the world peace and security and an unpardonable war crime.
Japan's enforcement of the "security legislation" in total disregard of the just voices demanding the abolition of the war law reveals before the world its true colors as a war state after completely discarding the mask of "peace-loving state" which it has worn for form's sake.

The ruling forces of Japan are now vying with each other to claim that the enactment of the law helps tighten the "Japan-U.S. alliance" and provides "a guarantee for the consolidation" of the defense system of Japan and "it is indispensable for Japan to prevent a war."

Japan, a state for aggression and war, is now driving the chariot of militarism at breakneck speed to reemerge "greater Japanese empire," backed by the U.S. keen to world domination.
It is the consistent ambition pursued by Samurai Japan to launch reinvasion to conquer the world with the backing the U.S. since its defeat in World War II.
Right after the defeat the Japanese reactionaries have made desperate efforts to remove legal and institutional mechanisms obstructive to overseas aggression.
Especially the present ruling authorities have become more undisguised in their moves to revise laws for justifying overseas aggression while talking about the "departure from the postwar system" and the revision of the "Pacifist Constitution".

They not only officially raised issues of turning Japan into a major military power and launching overseas aggression as state policies but also worked in real earnest to form the National Security Council and map out a strategy of the national security modeling after the U.S. war mechanism.

Abe, after naming a new Cabinet the "Cabinet challenging the future", dismissed 10 cabinet ministers from offices at a time and appointed his confidants to those posts in a bid to adopt the "security legislation".

It is by no means accidental that the public opinion at home and abroad is terming Abe's Cabinet the one which has realized the ancestors' long-cherished desire, branding it as the "war cabinet" and the "cabinet aimed at long-term office".
The present Japanese ruling forces are shouting "bravo" for the fact that they can further boost the military cooperation with the U.S. by enforcing the law.

But Japan is sadly mistaken.
The U.S. which Japan so deeply trusts is not the only superpower in the world and its bluffing is nothing but an ill-advised bravery of Hitler who brought about ruin by himself in return for going against the trend of the justice of history.

Only death and doom awaited Japan which has entered the road of world domination backed by the U.S. through the conclusion of "Katsura-Taft Treaty".
What is deplorable indeed is that Japan is rushing headlong into overseas aggression with outcries for the tightened alliance with the U.S., failing to discern between what is right and what is wrong in the past and properly understand the trend of the present situation.

What matters is that Japan is making profound confusing of right and wrong to mislead public opinion in a bid to create impression that the enforcement of the "security legislation" is to cope with the DPRK's "threat".
What should not be overlooked is the fact that Abe blustered the cooperation between Japan and the U.S. would be developed whenever the north Korea launches ballistic missiles by enforcing the law and the chief Cabinet secretary claimed the enforcement of the law helped guarantee the people's life and peaceful living under serious security environment surrounding Japan.

Japan has infringed upon the sovereignty of other countries so far but no country has invaded or threatened Japan.
Even now there is no country threatening Japan.
It is unpardonable that Japan turns a blind eye to such a reality and openly tries to join in the aggressive military moves of the U.S. which is technically at war with the DPRK under the pretext of coping with someone's "threat".

The DPRK's service personnel and people will never tolerate Japan keen to launch militarist reinvasion without liquidating the past crimes before the Korean people.
Japan which enacted the war law obsessed with the anachronistic ambition for reinvasion will meet a miserable war disaster again and will have to regret it forever. -0-
