No Force Can Bring down DPRK: KCNA Commentary

Pyongyang, December 25 (KCNA) -- In the closing days of 2017 the world is clearly seeing the image of the DPRK that has towered as a new strategic state.
The U.S. journal National Interest in a commentary on Dec. 15 wrote that 2017 was a special year for north Korea in which it possessed direct deterrence to the nuclear blackmail of the U.S.
It added that the most important lesson drawn this year is that north Korea is firm in its will at nuclear possession and it is ready to risk anything to this end. Threat would never stop north Korea. If there is anything Trump taught us this year, it is the fact that north Korea would never abandon its nuclear program.

The Washington Post, the British weekly magazine The Week and other Western media and experts in Korean issue have become strong in their assertion that the DPRK is now possessed of nuclear deterrence and there is nothing the U.S. is able to do with this and that the U.S. should recognize the DPRK's nuclear possession.

The former foreign minister of Poland on Dec. 17 said that the DPRK is a nuclear power and it will further consolidate its position.
This is the unanimous acknowledgement of the international community of the undeniable tremendous might and unchangeable strategic position of the DPRK.

Acknowledgement is the basis of thinking and a starting point of action.
The U.S. has so far drunken bitter cups in decades of stand-off with the DPRK because it took the DPRK wrong.

Whether it took the DPRK as a weak nation or a subject country which moves at the beck and call of a big power or as a government which would collapse out of its own accord, it is all prompted by the U.S. ignorance of the DPRK, its inveterate repugnancy against the DPRK and arrogance looking down on others.

Today the U.S. and hostile forces are taken aback by the tremendous might of the DPRK. But if they understand the ideology, history and tradition of the DPRK, they will admit that it is the inevitable result.

This year the DPRK has made rapid progress beyond imagination in completing the state nuclear force and realizing the cause of building a rocket power under the wise guidance of the respected Supreme Leader.
Finally, an end is put to the days when the U.S. used to threaten the DPRK with nuclear weapons, and the theatre of the final battle between the DPRK and the U.S. has definitely moved to the U.S. mainland across the Pacific.

A fundamental change has also been brought about in the international community's perspective and acknowledgement of the overall state might and strategic position of the DPRK.
Through this year's struggle, the Korean people keenly realized once again the validity of the Workers' Party of Korea's line of simultaneous development of the two fronts, and they will advance with confidence along the road of socialism despite manifold difficulties and hardships.

No force on the earth can bring down the powerful DPRK.
The U.S. has to make a bold decision to write a new chapter of the DPRK-U.S. relations, by setting in order its thought though belatedly.
This is the best advice given to the U.S. on the New Year. -0-

KCNA Commentary on Disgraceful S. Korean Authorities

Pyongyang, December 5 (KCNA) -- Which is the worst colony of modern version in the world and who is its "master"?
The answer can be found in the recent meeting of the Joint Committee on "Status of Forces Agreement" (SOFA) between the U.S. and south Korea.
At the meeting on SOFA which stipulated the status of the brigandish U.S. imperialist aggression forces in south Korea, the U.S. refused to meet south Korea's demands at all over the discussed issues.

The U.S. denied opening of the contents of the meeting under the pretence of "military secrets" and turned down the issues of the reparation for the victims of the crimes committed by GIs and sharing burden for de-pollution of the U.S. imperialist aggression forces' bases in south Korea, talking about "intensifying preventive effort" against GI crimes and the "constructive discussion".
In a word, the meeting, which was run through with pressure and submission, proved that the relations between the U.S. and south Korea are master-servant relationship from A to Z.

South Koreans from all walks of life strongly denounce the humiliating behavior of the authorities who kept mum about the U.S. arbitrary practices at the meeting.
Now the U.S. forces are present in not a few countries and regions and there are agreements on the status of forces. However, such slavery document can hardly be found in the world as the U.S.-south Korea SOFA.

Under this humiliating "agreement", the GIs present in south Korea have enjoyed extraterritorial privileges beyond imagination for more than half a century and the sufferings of south Koreans from it are untold.
Typical is the death of Sin Hyo Sun and Sim Mi Son, two schoolgirls of south Korea who were driven over by an armored car of the U.S. imperialist aggressor forces.

Under the pretence of "military need" the U.S. have installed in different parts of south Korea military bases and facilities at its will, turning the areas into a barren land. Furthermore, it has deprived south Korea of money running into astronomical figures every year, under the name of "defence cost sharing".
South Korea is suffering all sorts of humiliation and sacrifice under the slavery "agreement" in the present era of independence. This is a disgrace and insult to the nation.

The present south Korean authorities bragged that they would talk something necessary to the U.S. But now they keep mum in bad shape at over such issues related to the life and safety of people as reparation for victims of GI crimes and cost for de-pollution. Until when does south Korea suffer such disgrace?

What is more shameful is that the south Korean authorities advertise about "joint efforts for the strengthened alliance" though they got a cold reception at the meeting.
They are pro-U.S. sycophantic lackeys without an iota of soul of the nation as they turn away their face from the reality, in which the aggressors legitimately commit inhumane evils under SOFA, and beg for "alliance".

It is the mindset of the south Korean public to abrogate the humiliating unequal "agreement" and drive the U.S. imperialist aggression forces, root cause of misfortune and sufferings, out of south Korea.
The south Korean authorities should clearly understand the demand of candlelight demonstrators desirous of independence against the U.S., far from getting hell-bent on confrontation with the compatriots while begging for the permanent U.S. military presence. -0-

KCNA Commentary on Wretched Plight of U.S. Facing Imminent Ruin

Pyongyang, November 25 (KCNA) -- World media are having a field day carrying the U.S. miserable defeat in the DPRK-U.S. nuclear stand-off as special news.
Russian internet homepage Patrioti Moskva in an article titled "Position of the DPRK as a nuclear power" wrote that the U.S. which was boasting of its advantages in nuclear weapons is reeling after the emergence of a new nuclear power in the world, adding:

The DPRK is a small country in its territory and population.
Such a country has so far been exposed to harsh nuclear threats from the U.S.
The world's first and biggest nuclear weapons state U.S. has deployed huge nuclear hardware and nuclear weapons in south Korea and staged all sorts of nuclear war exercises including Team Spirit and Ulji Focus Lens every year and even officially declared the DPRK as a target of a preemptive nuclear attack.

This compelled the DPRK to opt for the path of nuclear possession and the path of bolstering nuclear deterrence for self-defense.
The DPRK, which had access to nuclear weapons to terminate the U.S. nuclear threat, carried out even H-bomb test to defend the sovereignty of the country and the right to existence of the nation and guarantee the peace on the Korean peninsula and the security of the region, thus ranking itself with dignity among the world's six nuclear powers.

It would be realistic and wise for the U.S. to accept the assertion of Bandow, senior fellow at the Cato Institute in the U.S. and former special assistant to President Ronald Reagan, that the option for the U.S. has to be holding dialogue with the DPRK and withdrawing the U.S. forces from Northeast Asia.

The British newspaper Daily Star and the U.S. newspaper The Hill and other media also reported that U.S. Strategic Command Head John Hyten officially said that he would not obey Trump's order for a nuclear attack on north Korea and that lots of netizens of the U.S. supported him.

The French AFP commented that the clarification of their possible denial of the president's order for nuclear attack in breach of law by U.S. Strategic Command Head John Hyten in the wake of the former U.S. Strategic Command head has something in common with the moves of Congress to restrain the U.S. president's right to use nuclear weapons.

The former senior director of the U.S. National Security Council who is an expert on nuclear weapons and non-proliferation wrote on a website of the Carnegie Foundation for International Peace that Americans may query what does it mean when they hear that the U.S. is still not be able to intercept two north Korean missiles as they have squandered tens of billions of U.S. dollars for more than 30 years, but to our regret, the U.S. has to admit this fact.

Lots of media of the world report that "the DPRK advanced into the stage of perfecting the smaller nuclear weapons of the highest level in the world", "DPRK's H-bomb is ultra-modern nuclear warhead developed in Korean style, not by the way employed by the U.S. or Russia", and "it is able to turn such big cities of the U.S. as Eastern New York and Washington into ashes at a single shot".

As was commented by the international community, the more zealously the U.S. resorts to the anachronistic hostile policy toward the DPRK, the bitterer shame and destruction the "world's only superpower" will face. -0-

KCNA Commentary Blasts Japan's Military Moves

Pyongyang, November 20 (KCNA) -- The Japanese reactionaries are getting hell-bent on military provocations targeting the DPRK.
On Nov. 11 and 12 the Japan Maritime "Self-Defense Force" staged large-scale joint military drills in league with U.S. nuclear aircraft carrier task forces.

Japan Defense Minister Onodera, commenting on the drills involving USS Ronald Reagan, Theodore Roosevelt and Nimitz, and MSDF's escort warships Ise, Makinami and Inazma, said "the drills were effective ones which clearly showed the strong will of Japan and the U.S."
Meanwhile, Japan is stepping up the deployment of the new type missile defense system Aegis Ashore in Akita and Yamaguchi prefectures under the pretext of coping with ballistic missiles of the DPRK.

It is about to import SM-3 and F-35As and warships equipped with an Aegis combat system from the U.S., according to a report from the recent press conference jointly held by Trump and Abe.
All facts clearly prove that the Japanese reactionaries, buckling down to realizing their wild ambition for launching an overseas invasion, have gone beyond the red line in their risky military moves.

Japan seeks to secure a pretext for deploying its SDF troops on the Korean peninsula under the excuse of "threat" from the DPRK and thus bring into reality its old dream of "Greater East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere" by justifying its reinvasion of the Asia-Pacific region.
This is just the invariable wild ambition being sought by the reactionaries of Japan.

Although over seven decades have passed since Japan's defeat, the Japan militarists' wild ambition has never changed but is being revived by their descendents.
The present ruling quarters of Japan put into force the "security law" in March 2016, thus providing the SDF with the power to exercise "the right of collective self-defense" and dramatically expanding the sphere of the SDF's overseas activities.

They have modeled Japan on fascism in haste by instituting a series of evil laws like those on protecting specified secrets and punishing organized crimes. Recently, they are busy pushing ahead with the scenario for retrogressively revising the existing Constitution as a final phase for realizing its wild ambition for overseas invasion.

Japan is crazy about the joint military drills with the main forces of the U.S. imperialist aggression army to be involved in the future Korean war deployed on its mainland, terming the DPRK's entirely just measures for self-defense "threats." This is just war hysteria to ignite a fresh Korean war in league with the U.S.

However, it will be good for Japan not to run wild, obsessed with megalomania.
Japan itself will not be safe once a war breaks out on the Korean peninsula. Everything of Japan to be involved in the war may disappear at once together with the U.S. military bases in Japan.
Japan's crazy ride on a militarist chariot will only make it fall into a pitfall of ruin. -0-

KCNA Commentary on World's Appreciation of Victory of DPRK

Pyongyang, November 4 (KCNA) -- The international community is becoming vocal praising the DPRK which records only victories while foiling the U.S. and other hostile forces' reckless nuclear war moves and despicable sanctions and pressure.

Newspapers Sunday Express and Telegraph of Britain and its BBC and Nepali internet magazine Nepal Today, Indian newspaper Statesman and other world media, reporting respected supreme leader Kim Jong Un visiting the Pyongyang Cosmetics Factory, commented in unison that his composed attitude blew off the threat of nuclear war from the U.S. with a smile.
The Austrian ORFTV heaped praises, saying that it is something unusual and something amazing that the Supreme Leader of north Korea visited the cosmetics factory at a time when the DPRK and the U.S. still remain acute in their military stand-off.

This is high appreciation of the personality of Kim Jong Un as a great man who brought about a great victory in the confrontation with the U.S.-led imperialists, and at the same time, the derision of the inglorious failure of the U.S. hostile policy toward the DPRK.

The greatness of a country and a nation is decided by its leader.
The unshakable revolutionary faith of the leader and his matchless pluck and courage serve as the source of the mightiness of a nation, and also become the best weapon more powerful than A-bomb.
The army and people of the DPRK are putting into practice the beautiful dreams and ideal while brilliantly accomplishing the historic cause of building a state nuclear force by dint of their single-minded unity around their leader.

Trump kicked up the war hysteria, stressing that war will be fought on the Korean peninsula and deaths will be on it even though there would be thousands of deaths, only to invite international shame and denunciation.
Even at this moment, the U.S. is kicking up war hysteria after introducing three nuclear carrier strike groups and other nuclear strategic assets into the Korean peninsula and into waters around it.

But the U.S.-style bluffing can never work and certain is who will win and who will lose.
Trump's Asian junket is a loser's mendicant junket as he thinks of getting help even from his junior allies and neighboring countries after he was put into trouble in the world eyes.
It is the biggest victory to contain war and defend peace and security with great mental power and strategy. -0-

U.S. Warmongers' Reckless Action Denounced

Pyongyang, October 20 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the National Peace Committee of Korea Thursday issued a statement in denunciation of the reckless military action of the U.S. warmongers obsessed with the anachronistic ambition for stifling the DPRK which is reaching the extreme line.

According to the statement, on Oct. 10 brass hats of the U.S. military at the Department of Defense reported to Trump the military options toward the DPRK. They focused on military options that ensure an intensive and surprise, preemptive attack, avoiding a total war as much as possible and minimizing their losses.

Of those options, the "decapitation operation" accompanied by a cyber warfare was chosen as the best way. Under this plan, they reportedly discussed for a long time on the issues of accurate location of north Korea's supreme leadership by such latest spy means as satellites and drones, precision strike by long-distance attack means including nuclear strategic bombers, destruction of core facilities and nuclear and missile bases in the north by infiltration of highly trained special operation forces and cyber warfare based on vicious virus Stuxnet, etc.

This shows that the U.S. started a war against the DPRK without declaration under its most dangerous war scenario, the statement said, and went on:
After all, the Korean peninsula is now put into the worst situation in which the outbreak of a nuclear war can never be averted.
It is the invariable and resolute counteraction method of Juche Korea to mercilessly punish the war maniacs with fire.

Those who dare challenge our supreme leadership should be found out and wiped out to the last one wherever they may be. This is the strong and fixed will of the army and people of the DPRK.
As been already declared, we will take the unimaginable toughest counteraction to bring the bitterest end and total destruction to the U.S. mainland, not "minimum loss", if Trump finally ignites a war, obsessed with illusion of "decapitation" and paralysis of commanding system by cyber warfare.
In case the present situation of the Korean peninsula goes to the worst phase, the U.S. is entirely to blame for it. -0-

U.S. Reckless Military Moves Compel DPRK to Take Action: Researcher of Institute for American Studies

Pyongyang, October 13 (KCNA) -- Kim Kwang Hak, a researcher at the Institute for American Studies of the DPRK Foreign Ministry, released the following commentary titled "The U.S. reckless military moves compel the DPRK to take action" on Friday:

Recently the Trump group is making military bluffing against the DPRK, while introducing nuclear strategic equipment into areas around it one after another.
According to foreign reports, Trump met top military officers at White House on October 10 to have a confab over military counteraction against the DPRK. Meanwhile, the U.S. staged nocturnal flight exercises with Japan Air "Self-Defense Force" and the south Korean puppet airforce fighters after introducing two B-1B nuclear strategic bombers into the sky above the East Sea of Korea at night on the same day.

The Trump group is also inciting military pressure on the DPRK while introducing nuclear submarine Michigan into the Pusan Port of south Korea and planning to dispatch nuclear carrier Ronald Reagan into the waters around south Korea in mid-October to hold "high-intensity" joint exercises with the puppet forces.

What should not be overlooked is that such military moves have been conducted at a time when the Trump group posted on twitter such letters reading that the U.S. failed to handle north Korea for the past 25 years and only one thing will prove effective, while frequently hinting at "military option" backed by such rubbish as "a calm before a storm" and "total destruction".

The Trump team is trying to provoke the DPRK through such reckless military provocations as dispatch of B-1B, nuclear submarine and nuclear carrier into the waters around the Korean peninsula. Such military acts compel the DPRK to take military counteraction.

Its senseless military provocations make us keenly realize once again that we were quite right when we decided to bolster the nuclear deterrence for self-defense in every way, and harden our conviction that we have to keep to this path forever.

We have already warned several times that we will take counteractions for self-defense including a salvo of missiles into waters near the U.S. territory of Guam, an advance base for invading the DPRK, where key U.S. bases are located, as the U.S. has resorted to military actions in sensitive regions, making the waters off the Korean peninsula and in the Pacific restless.

The U.S. military action hardens our determination that the U.S. should be tamed with fire and lets us take our hand closer to "trigger" for taking the toughest countermeasure.
In case any shocking case occurs on the Korean peninsula, the U.S. will be made to hold responsibility as it is pushing the situation on the peninsula to the point of explosion while going reckless, being carried away by ill-advised bravery. -0-

KCNA Commentary Rejects U.S. Double-dealing Standards

Pyongyang, September 23 (KCNA) -- The situation of the Korean peninsula goes to clearly prove the brigandish double-dealing standards of the U.S. and its vassal forces.
The UN Security Council did not utter even a single word about the joint military drills staged by the U.S., the source of vicious cycle of tension in the Korean peninsula and the region, and its vassal forces. But, it cooked up such anti-DPRK criminal documents as "sanctions resolutions" and "press statements" one after another over the DPRK's measures for self-defense.
This is a mockery at mankind aspiring after justice and peace and the height of double-dealing standards.

In an article contributed to the Canadian internet paper Global Research on Sept. 16, Carla Stea, its correspondent at the UN, said:
There is now a discernible pattern to the U.S. manipulation of the UNSC. On Sept. 9, the NATO chief said north Korea is a global threat and requires a global response; and that, of course, also includes NATO.

North Korea needs nuclear defenses to protect itself from violent aggression by the south Korea-U.S. axis.
The U.S. ambassador, many of the Security Council members, willingly or unwillingly and many others elsewhere are, it seems, deliberately refusing to respect, nor take responsibility for the horrifying massacre of 3-4 million north Koreans between 1950-1953, and ignore fact that the ongoing menace of south Korean and U.S. military threats are inflicting an unendurable state of terror upon north Koreas.
This is a fair comment on what is happening on the Korean peninsula.

The anti-DPRK "sanctions resolutions" and "press statements" adopted at the UNSC are criminal documents as they contained the U.S. sinister intention to isolate and stifle the DPRK at any cost from A to Z, far from justice to be regarded as a legal foundation and the principle of respect for the rights and duties prescribed in international treaties.

Neither UN Charter nor international law stipulates judicial ground that nuke and ballistic missile tests pose a threat to global peace and security.
As a matter of fact, those countries which conducted such tests much earlier than the DPRK have never been put into question at the UNSC.
The U.S. is seeking to bring down the ideology and social system chosen by the Korean people by disarming the DPRK and suffocating it economically through the UNSC's "sanctions resolutions" which lacks any propriety of international law.

The DPRK's steps for bolstering up the nuclear deterrent do not pose any threat to global peace and security, but the U.S. reckless saber-rattling for igniting a nuclear war getting on the serious nerves of our state is the threat to global peace and security.

If the U.S. is allowed to realize its ambition to dominate the world by applying the double-dealing standards on the international arena, justice and truth will be stamped out and the world turned into a mayhem of jungle law.
Such unjust action to trample down the sovereignty of the DPRK with double-dealing standards can never be allowed. -0-

KCNA Commentary Blasts S. Korean Regime's Reckless Moves

Pyongyang, September 5 (KCNA) -- The south Korean puppet forces are talking about "conception of offensive operation" against the DPRK.
Recently, the chief executive of south Korea grumbled about the delayed establishment of the "triad strike system" and impossible exercise of OPECON despite the rapidly developing nuclear and missile capabilities of the north. He cried out for stepping up the structural renovation of the army to help it carry out an "offensive operation" in case the north makes a "beyond-the-red-line provocation" or attacks the "capital area."

The puppet military of south Korea is hyping the establishment of "conception of executing an offensive war on the Korean peninsula."
This is no more than an outcry and stupidity of losers stunned by the DPRK's nuclear force bolstered in quality and quantity.
The puppet forces are ridiculously bluffing, unaware of the strategic position of the DPRK and their wretched position.

The DPRK, advancing under the great banner of the line of simultaneously developing the two fronts, is demonstrating its might as a dignified nuclear power and world-famous military power.
Its ballistic rockets are soaring into the sky one after another to strangle the U.S., despite the harshest sanctions and pressure.

Then, what about the plight of the puppets? They are no more than colonial servants and cannon fodder of the U.S.
In that context, the chief executive's grumblings about impossible exercise of OPECON sound like an acknowledgment of that poor plight and an expression of his discontent about the present U.S.-south Korea relations.

The puppet forces should get an approval of the U.S. if they want to increase a bit their missile range or weight of warheads, to say nothing of OPECON.
It is a great irony that the puppet forces, which cannot fire even a single bullet without an approval of the U.S., are talking about "executing a war" on their own initiative.
Although south Korea takes over OPECON, the U.S. will command its air force and navy in contingency. That means the U.S. forces will take the core right to command.

Skeptical is about what the puppet forces would do on their initiative under that situation.
They should know where they stand and behave with prudence.
It only provokes a side-splitting laughter that the puppet forces lacking power dare talk about "offensive operation" now that even their master U.S. is having a hard time, exasperated by the tremendous might of the DPRK.
Their reckless moves only reveal their weakness. They should be mindful that their talk about "offensive" will only lead them to destruction. -0-

UNSC Is Bargaining Ground of Interest-seeking Powers: KCNA Commentary

Pyongyang, August 22 (KCNA) -- The situation on the Korean peninsula has rapidly aggravated after the adoption of the anti-DPRK "sanctions resolution" 2371 at the UN Security Council under the manipulation of the U.S.
The DPRK government flatly denied the "resolution", aimed to completely block its economic development and improvement of people's livelihood, as a wanton violation of the sovereignty of the country and clarified its will to make the toughest counteraction against it.

Meanwhile the U.S. started large-scale joint military exercises, flexing its military muscle, thus driving the situation to a catastrophic phase.
After all, the UN Security Council has discarded its basic mission and this has made it unable to evade the responsibility for putting the peace and security in the Korean peninsula, the region and the rest of the world in peril.

Those countries which voted for the sanctions against the DPRK are now going busy, calling for "restraint" and "peaceful solution". This is a clear indication of the embarrassment they have faced over the development of the situation.
It is truth repeatedly proven in history that sanctions would never help solve the problem and they are not beneficial to anyone.

However, the UNSC cooked up the illegal and unprecedented inhuman "sanctions resolution" against the DPRK again. This clearly proves its nature as a means for executing the White House's policy hostile toward the DPRK and its position as a political waiting maid serving the U.S.
What should not be overlooked is the fact that the UNSC has turned into a behind-the-scene bargaining ground of big powers for meeting their interests.

Before voting for the "resolution", its permanent members had shown off principle and faith, saying that sanctions themselves are not the purpose and they should not impinge on the usual economic activities and people's living in the DPRK. But they made a U-turn overnight. This is not a secret.
Do the permanent member nations have the face to trumpet about independent right, guarantee of security and international justice, and can they be called responsible big countries in the true sense of the words as they went impudent as to place their own interests above the existence and security of a sovereign state.

After yielding to the U.S. high-handed and arbitrary practices and to meet their imminent interests, the big powers trampled the sovereignty and rights to existence and development of a sovereign country. This could have "impressed" the U.S. but the response to it by the international community is unusually negative.

The Turkish newspaper Daily Sabah on August 10, noting that "countries taking issue with the nuclear weapons of north Korea are nuclear powers", commented "nuclear powers are closely watched as they invade and bomb other countries, get themselves ready to destroy the third world countries and brand those countries as 'dangerous elements' while pushing them into a tight corner".

This report represents the perspective of the international community on the arrogant powers.
Such outdated international order as the UNSC system can no longer guarantee the future of humankind. -0-

KCNA Commentary on Wrong Decision of S. Korean Court

Pyongyang, August 8 (KCNA) -- Shortly ago, the puppet Seoul Central District Court of south Korea gave a decision on light punishment upon the culprits of the case of blacklisted persons of culture and arts, sparking uproar of different social standings.
The case which jolted whole south Korea is that of fascist suppression and violation of human rights unprecedented in history. The south Korean authorities put more than 8 000 progressive persons of culture and arts on the blacklist and suppressed them under the direct instruction and control of traitor Park Geun Hye.

The puppet Seoul Central District Court sentenced to light punishment seven persons responsible for the case, including Kim Ki Chun, former presidential chief of staff of Chongwadae, and Jo Yun Son, former minister of Culture, Sports and Tourism, saying that "the state administration's keynote of the Park Geun Hye regime calling for removal of the leftists and aid to the rightists has not been recognized as illegality". Even it set free Jo under the pretext of probation.

The unfair decision on the top-class criminals who organized and implemented political terror shading the modern witch hunting is an intolerable mockery and wanton challenge to the mindset of the candlelight demonstrators.
Through the decision, the puppet court revealed once again its true colors as political waiting maid serving the fascist dictatorship forces, the conservative group of traitors.

The puppet judicial authorities staged illegal trials in the whole period of traitor Park Geun Hye's office.
Here are typical examples. They are the case of rebellion plot of Ri Sok Gi, a lawmaker from the former Unified Progressive Party, on the sedition charge and the case of the Intelligence Service's interference in the presidential election which gave a verdict of not guilty to the director of IS for the illogical reason that he did not involve himself in the election but intervened in politics.

After the regime change, the puppet judicial authorities continue to read the face of the conservative group of traitors, pretending to follow the mindset of the candlelight demonstrators.
Dismissing the arrest warrant for the vice-president of Samsung Electronics, accomplice of the case of influence peddling in the "state affairs" in January, and the formal decision on the culprits of the current case of blacklisted persons of culture and arts are a revelation of the sinister attempt to affect the trial of traitor Park Geun Hye to reduce her crimes and dodge heavy penalty.

The puppet court is one of the evils to be removed as it imposed heavy penalties upon the people who conducted just acts for independence, democracy and reunification and showed leniency to the rascals who committed crimes against democracy and human rights.
The puppet court should clearly see the mindset of the angry public contending that "the court should give proper decision before another candlelight action" or "the popular masses will turn out in the drive for judicial reform." -0-

KCNA Commentary on Transfer of U.S. 8th Army Command in S. Korea

Pyongyang, July 18 (KCNA) -- Days ago, the U.S. and south Korean puppet army transferred the Command of the U.S. 8th Army present in south Korea to the area of Phyongthaek, Kyonggi Province, before holding an "opening ceremony of new building".

The commander of the 8th Army in his "welcoming speech" praised the south Korean lackeys, terming the move an "event demonstrating the solid south Korea-U.S. alliance". He added that the transfer of the U.S. base would improve the defense capability and combat preparedness of the U.S. forces.

The transfer, related with the attempt to perpetuate the U.S. military presence in south Korea, is a revelation of the foolish intention to save its troops only in the confrontation with the DPRK.
The goal of the U.S. Asia policy is to occupy the whole of Korea with south Korea as a stepping stone and realize the ambition for world domination.

Accordingly, the U.S. forced the Korean nation to suffer the most miserable disaster of the Korean War in the 1950s. And it has imposed upon the nation all sorts of misfortunes and sufferings for several decades.
Far from drawing a due lesson from the Korean War in which the myth of the "mightiness" of the U.S. was shattered as it misjudged its rival in the beginning, the U.S. has stationed its troops in Ryongsan of Seoul and different parts of south Korea and staged various drills of war against the DPRK.

Frightened by the tremendous might of the Korean People's Army rapidly strengthening these days, the U.S. chose the best way to move its aggressor forces bases in south Korea to the areas south of the River Han.
It is the American style way of existence to save its own destiny without caring about its face as superpower. This vividly showed what the "solid south Korea-U.S. alliance" is.

The situation of the empire declining to the downward can never change by transferring its military bases now.
It is very easy to wipe out the U.S. imperialist aggressor forces and south Korean puppet army under the very nose of us as we are all prepared to make the U.S. mainland into ashes.

It is very ridiculous for the U.S. to advertise that the U.S. base in Phyongthaek is the biggest overseas U.S. military base in the world.
The bigger target will further improve hit-rates and fire-influence.

The south Korean warmongers can never escape from the sight of the DPRK as they are hell bent on the confrontation racket devoting the worthwhile place and big taxes from the south Korean people to the U.S., which is aiming at annihilating the Korean nation.
The aggressors and provocateurs can never be safe under the sky no matter whether they are located in Ryongsan and Phyongthaek or in the U.S. mainland. -0-

KCNA Commentary Blasts Terror Plotters

Pyongyang, June 30 (KCNA) -- The hideous state-sponsored acts of terrorism against the supreme headquarters of the DPRK have been recently revealed one after another to infuriate all the servicepersons and civilians of the DPRK.
In the wake of the arrest of a heinous terrorist group who were infiltrated into the DPRK by CIA of the U.S. and the south Korean Intelligence Service to commit state-sponsored terrorism against the supreme leadership of the DPRK with chemical substance, it was disclosed that Park Geun Hye together with the IS pressed for an operation for "eliminating the leadership of the north" during her tenure.

This can never be pardoned as it was the worst provocation to remove the priceless spiritual mainstay of our army and people and deprive them of their rights to living.
The revelation of hideous terrorist attempts by the U.S. and south Korean intelligence agencies is shocking the world community.

They hatched such plots as the case of "association for bringing down statues", the "precision missile strikes" at the monuments for immortalizing the great leader in different parts of the DPRK, "beheading operation" and the "precision strike at the office of supreme leadership" in the new century.

The plot hatched by Park for terrorism based on internationally banned radio-active material and biochemical substance was the worst crime in history.
The recently revealed "operation for eliminating the leadership of the north" and "assassination plot" are hideous organized crimes that can never be pardoned.

It is crystal clear to everyone that another hideous terrorism will be attempted if those devils are allowed to be at large.
It is the resolute will of our army and people to find out at any cost and mercilessly punish those who dare challenge to the supreme leadership.
If the south Korean authorities truly want the north-south ties to be improved, they should do what they have to do with regard to the hideous state-sponsored terrorist attempts.

Not only those human scum who hatched such terrorist plot but also those who have any intention to challenge the supreme leadership will never go scot-free for a single day.
Those who dare challenge to the sun are fated to meet the divine punishment. -0-

S. Koreans Closely Watch Authorities: KCNA Commentary

Pyongyang, June 13 (KCNA) -- The U.S. has buckled down to taming the south Korean authorities in an undisguised manner.
Sending government delegation, Congressional delegation and individual politicians to south Korea in succession, the U.S. is inquiring into the stand of its stooges to the north-south relations and THAAD deployment issue, stressing that "dialogue with the north is only possible under proper precondition" and "THAAD deployment should not be withdrawn as it was under the decision made between allies."

After summoning Chongwadae and Foreign Ministry authorities to Washington, the U.S. enticed them not to say anything offending at the south Korea-U.S. summit meeting due in the latter half of June, uttering such honeyed words that when the south Korean chief executive visits the U.S., it would "treat him with utmost courtesy".

Lurking behind this is the U.S. inveterate repugnancy to the democratic and pro-reform forces in south Korea, as well as the uneasiness about the a serous obstacle that may be created in the way of realizing its DPRK policy and strategy for domination over Asia-Pacific with the emergence of the present "government" in south Korea.

The U.S. has tamed the democratic forces to keep pace with it with utmost vigilance whenever they rose to power in south Korea.
During Kim Dae Jung and Roh Moo-Hyun days, it ran the whole gamut of cynical ploy, summoning the south Korean ambassadors to the U.S., browbeating them into maintaining "alliance" with it and pressurizing them to accept the U.S. policy.

It is, therefore, clear that the upcoming "south Korea-U.S. summit meeting" would serve as an "open process for brainwashing" the south Korean chief executive.
What matters is that the present chief executive of south Korea, who caught interest of the public for his remarks that "he would always say 'no' to the U.S.", has now gone servile to the U.S., saying that "dialogue will be possible only when there is change in the north" and that "investigation into THAAD does not mean to change the existing decision", being frightened.

This is an evident submission to the U.S. and an act of treachery against the desire of the fellow countrymen for the improvement of the north-south relations and rejection of outsiders.

The south Korean authorities will be mistaken if they think they can maintain their political life by yielding to the U.S.
Servility to outsiders would lead to ruin and swimming with the mindset of the people is the only just way for existence and justice. This is the truth of history.

The successive conservative forces ranging from traitor Syngman Rhee to traitor Park Geun Hye were ousted from office before their expiry. It was because they were hell-bent on misrule against reunification and people at the beck and call of outsiders, while swimming against the will of the people.

A phrase referring to the present south Korean authorities as owner of ship and the public as water is in vogue among the south Koreans infuriated by the shameful submission to the U.S. now. This means that the water can keep the ship afloat or overturn it once they are enraged.

The south Korean authorities have to make clear their stand to this question of whether they would follow the people's mindset or would submit to the U.S.
The people are closely watching the authorities. -0-

American-style Bluff No Longer Workable: KCNA Commentary

Pyongyang, May 29 (KCNA) -- The U.S. is making desperate efforts to ignite a nuclear war against the DPRK on the Korean peninsula.
Recently the U.S. and the south Korean puppet group extended the period of joint drill with USS Carl Vinson nuclear powered carrier involved till the end of June, groundlessly taking issue with the DPRK's just step for bolstering its military capability for self-defence. And they plan to stage the largest-ever naval joint military drill of their nuclear carrier strike groups from early June with introduction of another nuclear carrier Ronald Reagan.

This is a dangerous military action driving the acute situation of the Korean peninsula to the point of explosion, an indication that the U.S. and south Korean warmongers' scheme for invasion of the north has reached to the extremes.

The U.S. bluffed that the drill would display the strong will to deter the possible military provocation from the DPRK. This shows that its talk about "dialogue" is nothing but deception and that the ambition of the aggressors for a nuclear war against the DPRK has remained unchanged. Earlier, the U.S. said that it has no intent to invade and replace the regime in the north but will guarantee its system.

Clouds of a nuclear war are hanging heavily above the Korean nation owing to the reckless war drills staged one after another in the sky, land and sea of south Korea.

The U.S., together with south Korea, had conducted the joint military exercises Key Resolve and Foal Eagle 17 across south Korea for more than 60 days from March 1, with large nuclear strategic assets, including the above-said nuclear power carriers, and more than 300 000 aggressor troops involved.

The U.S. is busy mulling to form a special task brigade for "beheading operation" in contingency within this year, after deploying Apache attack copter unit of the U.S. forces in south Korea in the hotspot waters in the West Sea.

Watching a flock of birds flying towards the south, the south Korean puppet forces fired hundreds of machine gun bullets into the DPRK side, claiming they spotted "unidentified flying object crossing the Military Demarcation Line".

The U.S. and south Korean warmongers should stop the reckless acts aggravating the situation, mindful that they would bring only final destruction to them.
The U.S. advertises that a nuclear powered carrier strike group is capable of carrying out a whole war. Its scheme for joint military exercises with such two strike groups involved will only make the DPRK's nuclear weapons target the mainland of the U.S.

The DPRK will remain unperturbed even in the face of all the U.S. nuclear strategic assets coming to attack.
The American-style bluff is no longer workable. -0-

KCNA Commentary Condemns S. Korean Conservatives' Scheme to Stay in Power

Pyongyang, May 2 (KCNA) -- The south Korean group of conservatives cries out for "retaking power", cheating the public under the spurious signboard of "reasonable and pure conservatism" ahead of the imminent "presidential" election.

The "Liberal Korea Party" and the "Parun Party" have buckled down to taking initiative, trading insults with each other though they originated from the former "Saenuri" Party. They are making last-ditch efforts, talking about "great unity of conservatives" and "single candidate from conservative parties" in a bid to prevent the opposition forces from taking power.

This is a clear proof of the desperate efforts of the remnants of the pro-Park Geun Hye cult to prolong their remaining days and stay in power though they are on the verge of ruin after being sternly punished by history.
Conservatism in south Korea just serves as a "lever for preserving interests" only as it has neither philosophy nor political view, not being the one as thought and ideology.

One can easily judge what the conservative group, a group of disgusting philistines and human scum, would do if they stay in power from the fact that the preceding puppet conservative regimes of south Korea were all enemies of reunification and the nation.

The conservative regimes regarded it as a "state policy" to remain desperately opposed to communism, the north and reunification. Such a policy served as the "most valuable one" of pro-U.S. conservatism.
When the national division and the inter-Korean confrontation festered, the U.S. and the pro-U.S. conservative group of south Korea worked hard to take advantage of it.

The conservative regimes mercilessly cracked down on the progressive democratic forces and pro-reunification patriotic forces by branding them as "pro-north leftist forces," crying out for achieving "unification by overthrowing or prevailing over communism" and "unification of social systems."

The Syngman-Rhee regime set it as a "principal state line" to persist in anti-communism. The Park Chung-Hee military fascist regime ruthlessly nipped in its bud the spirit of democratization growing among the south Korean public with the April 19 popular uprising as a momentum and quenched the public desire for reunification mounting with the July 4 joint statement as an occasion by pursuing the "yusin" fascist dictatorship. The brutal Chun Doo Hwan and Roh Tae Woo regimes cruelly suppressed the righteous public campaign for independence, democracy and reunification, turning Kwangju City into a sea of blood.

The Kim Yong Sam regime pushed the north-south relations to a complete catastrophe by rubbing salt into the wounds of the compatriots in the north who lost their great leader. The Lee Myung Bak and Park Geun Hye regimes caused havoc in the June 15 era of reunification by chilling the atmosphere for national unity and independent reunification.

As seen above, the conservative regimes in south Korea were all keen on doing evils only.
Shortly ago, Hong Jun Phyo, "presidential candidate" from the "Liberal Korea Party" openly cried out for "introducing tactical nuclear weapons", welcoming THAAD deployment. What he uttered are just reckless outbursts of a thrice-cursed traitor seized with the conservative ill habit of escalating confrontation with the compatriots in the north.

It is quite natural that if such conservative elements stay in power, the north-south relations already plunged into a catastrophe will come to total collapse and the Korean territory will turn into a theater of nuclear war of outsiders.
Now south Korean people are criticizing the behavior of the conservatives keen on committing frauds under the pretext of "security" as a "risky gambling on the lives of 50 million south Koreans" and "war game of political philistines for taking power."

The conservative group is just dregs of the times and reactionary one of history as it goes against the trend of times.
To eliminate the hateful conservative remnants to the last one is the only way out for the south Korean people. -0-

KCNA Commentary Slams Wall Street Journal for Vitriol

Pyongyang, April 3 (KCNA) -- Days ago, the U.S. newspaper Wall Street Journal of the right conservative forces hurled mud at the DPRK again.
The March 27th issue of the paper let out such flurry of nonsense that the U.S. should set a regime change in the DPRK as a clear-cut policy target in order to check its nuclear development and discuss on the matter with someone.

For the DPRK this sounds as nothing but a scream made by those frightened by the invincible might of the DPRK making a long drive as the days go by as it is the last expedient conceived by the strategic losers in the DPRK policy.
The single-minded unity of the army and people around the leader and the party, powerful military muscle with nuclear force as its pivot and world-startling self-development capability are fully guaranteeing the invincibility and solidity of the government of the DPRK.

However, the U.S. fails to understand this reality acknowledged and envied by the world. It is the main cause of the repeated political and military setbacks the U.S. has sustained for the past several decades.

The DPRK shattered the myth about the "mightiness" of the U.S. and brought about the beginning of its downhill turn for the first time in history in the Korean War in the 1950s, the confrontation of rifles and nukes. And now it has emerged a nuclear power which no one can provoke.

No matter what rhetoric the undesirable forces in the U.S. may let out, failing to properly understand the highest strategic position of the DPRK, utterly insensitive to reality, its nuclear attack capability will grow stronger.
The U.S. is wholly accountable for the DPRK's access to nukes and their bolstering.

It was the U.S. that compelled the DPRK to have access to nukes and pushed it to their modernization so that it is possessed of H-bomb and standardized nuclear warheads. It has posed constant nuclear threat to the DPRK, pursuing an anachronistic hostile policy toward it.

The DPRK legitimately opted for having access to nukes for defending sovereignty, dignity and vital rights of the country in the present world where justice, equality and respect are violated and highhanded and arbitrary practices stalk.
The DPRK keenly realizes how just it was when it bolstered up the revolutionary armed forces for self-defence pivot of which is the nuclear force whenever it watches the U.S. and its vassal forces dare taking issue with its nuclear treasured sword of justice.

The revolutionary armed forces of the DPRK, keeping the evil groups talking about "regime change" in the DPRK or echoing it within their sight, are fully determined to deal deadly nuclear blows at them.
The Wall Street Journal would be well advised to halt its foolish propaganda to hurt the dignity of the supreme leadership of the DPRK and think about when or how the U.S. may disappear from the surface of the earth. -0-

U.S. Slightest Misjudgment of DPRK Will Lead It to Final Doom: KCNA Commentary

Pyongyang, March 13 (KCNA) -- The U.S. administration is floating a rumor that it is examining a way of mounting a preemptive attack on the DPRK.
Various media including VOA, CNN and the Wall Street Journal carried articles to the effect that the White House is now examining strategies targeting the DPRK ranging from preemptive attack to regime change, anticipating a military conflict on the Korean peninsula within a month or two.

It is against this backdrop that experts on the Korean issue are commenting in unison that the U.S. planned military attack on the DPRK is a crazy act of inviting irrevocable disasters.

Harry J. Kazianis, room chief for defense studies of the Center for the National Interest and researcher for national security of the Potomac Foundation, warned that attack aimed at removing the regime in north Korea will invite an irrevocable disaster. He asserted that military invasion of north Korea is a crazy act, adding north Korea, which is well aware of foolishness of Saddam Hussein who allowed the deployment of the world's most powerful war forces just at its doorstep, would not miss an opportunity but mount an attack by mobilizing all possible forces under its possession in case there is a sign of deployment of armed forces. He also said that if the U.S. is true in its decision to "overthrow" the regime in north Korea, there can be no reason for north Korea to tolerate, stressing that what should be taken into consideration is that north Korea has maintained its social system for over six decades to counter possible invasion by the U.S.

Researcher of Defense Priorities Bonnie Kristian in a commentary titled "No, let's not invade north Korea" said that the plan for a preemptive attack on north Korea will bring diverse disaster as it is a big blunder rather than a wise alternative. The commentary said that north Korea will decide on a powerful nuclear strike the moment it senses an imminent attack by the U.S., adding that it will be very stressful for the Trump administration to try to find out a solution to the issue of north Korea but military option will entail much greater danger let alone interests.

The chairman of the U.S. Council of Foreign Relations when interviewed by media, warned that the Trump administration is at crossroads of crucial choice of whether to co-exist with north Korea possessed of capabilities of attacking the U.S. or disable nuclear and missile capabilities of north Korea by use of military force.

This cannot but be wise advices to the Trump administration's hard-line stand toward the DPRK.
The present U.S. administration is repeating senseless policy of nuclear blackmail which would bring only defeat, from the outset of its office, far from drawing a lesson from the failed north Korea policy of the preceding regimes.

It has gone foolish to plan a preemptive attack while pushing the situation on the Korean peninsula to the brink of a nuclear war by staging joint military drills with the south Korean puppet forces with the involvement of nuclear strategic assets like carrier task force, nuclear submarines, B-1B, B-52, B-2 strategic bomber triad.

The U.S. had better stop the foolish act of pricking its eyes with its own fingers.
Nothing can undermine the strategic position of the DPRK that has reached the highest level.

Now that the U.S. started dangerous nuclear war drills again, the DPRK has no option but to counter it with the toughest measures for bolstering the nuclear force as it had already declared.
If even a single shell is fired into the territory in which the sovereignty of the DPRK is exercised, the bases of aggression and provocation will be reduced to such debris that no living thing can be found.
The U.S. should properly understand that its slightest misjudgment about the DPRK will lead it to final doom. -0-

KCNA Commentary Slams Scrapping of Business Mobile Phones of High-ranking Officials in S. Korea

Pyongyang, February 15 (KCNA) -- It was recently disclosed that business mobile phones of high-ranking officials in south Korea are being physically scrapped, sparking off great furor.
Documents were massively destroyed at Chongwadae, the Intelligence Service and other power bodies of south Korea in the past, but it is the first time that even the business mobile phones of ministers and chiefs of agencies are scrapped.
Such farce of the south Korean puppet group is a cunning artifice conceived by Park Geun Hye and her yes men to destroy evidence proving their crimes being disclosed almost everyday.

As well known, not a few serious crimes of Park and her lackeys were proved by records in mobile phones after the outbreak of "Park Geun Hye-Choe Sun Sil scandal".
The contents of records in the mobile phone of Jong Ho Song, former chief secretary affiliated to Chongwadae, disclosed the true colors of Park, a puppet of female shaman Choe Sun Sil. The vice-chairman of the "National Federation of Businessmen" and An Jong Bom, former chief secretary for policy coordination of Chongwadae, responded to the investigation by the prosecution only after scrapping their mobile phones containing conversations and messages in a bid to destroy evidence proving their crimes.

With the doomsday of the Park regime drawing nearer, it is going busy with the above-said ruckus.
This is a mean attempt being made by those with guilty conscience.

It is hard fact that most of the incumbent ministers and chiefs of agencies who scrapped their mobile phones before any others are those who have shielded Park and Choe or have been suspected of being involved in the hideous scandal. This goes to prove that Park and her yes men are running the whole gamut of sinister intrigues to seek a way out.

South Korean opposition parties and personages of different social standings bitterly denounce the scrapping of mobile phones, branding it as "a stopgap measure to dodge the special investigation".
Nevertheless, a relevant person of the puppet Intelligence Service made excuses in a bid to fool the public, claiming that some of the numbers of former and incumbent high-ranking officials' phones leaked at the time of hacking attack of the north against the south Korean defense ministry in December last year and it proposed the replacement of business mobile phones to prevent the repetition of damage." However, south Koreans are spitting at the poor and disgusting behavior of the Park group vociferating about the "threat from the north" at the death-bed.

It was none other than the Intelligence Service which organized the mobile phone scrapping campaign and forced high-ranking officials to do so from the end of last year.
The IS has played the role of a shock brigade to check the impeachment of Park Geun Hye under the pretence of "coping with the north's hacking", and this brought to light that Chongwadae is the center of all criminal operations and conspiratorial plots.

It is the conservative group that should be thrown overboard to the last man as it is forsaken by the people.
The Park group's base campaign is only precipitating its doomsday. -0-

Possession of Powerful Strength Is Truth for Defending Sovereignty-KCNA Commentary

Pyongyang, January 27 (KCNA) -- Japan launched military satellite Kirameki-2 on Jan. 24.
Kirameki-2, the first independent satellite of the Defence Ministry, will be reportedly used for commanding and controlling all units of the "Self-defence Forces" and information sharing among them.
Now the Japanese reactionaries insist that the purpose of the satellite launch is to contain the DPRK but it is clear to even a mere child that it is targeting the neighboring countries.

What matters is that the U.S. and its vassal forces, which cried out for "sanctions" after branding the DPRK's launch of satellite for peaceful purposes as a "provocation" and "threat", are keeping mum about the military satellite launch of Japan.
Under the double-dealing standard unilaterally set by the U.S., the bullying forces term the DPRK's legitimate exercise of satellite launch for peaceful purposes "illegal" and "provocation" but tacitly connive at some countries' satellite launch for clear military purposes. This is a common practice on the international arena at present.

The world political arena today turned into a theater of violence centered on big powers in which justice, truth, conscience, obligation, equality and respect gradually disappear and injustice, strong-arm politics, hegemony, arbitrary practices, aggression and domination prevail and the most elementary principle governing the international relations set by humankind under agreement are disregarded.

The U.S.-led imperialist forces resort to undisguised domination and interference, openly violating weak and small nations' sovereignty and the right to existence.
They insist on the jungle logic that other countries must not do what they do and even take issue with the sovereign states' legitimate right and legitimate exercise of sovereignty.

The "privileged" forces who lord it over the UN and other arenas of the world unilaterally handle all the issues to meet their interests in wanton violation of the independent requirements and interests of majority of the developing countries.

The trend of the situation surrounding the DPRK clearly reflects the epitome of the extremely unfair world politics.
The DPRK has been exposed to unprecedented nuclear threat and blackmail and political, economic and military pressure for decades for the mere reason that it has not yielded to the U.S. high-handed and arbitrary practices.

In recent years the U.S. openly cried out for "regime change" and "collapse of social system" while describing the DPRK's declaration of its possession of smaller H-bomb and its military measures for self-defence as "serious threat" and "provocation" to the world peace and security and hurling huge nuclear strike means into the Korean peninsula.

In the world which sees the rein of the jungle law whereby justice is branded as injustice if one is weak, the DPRK had access to nuclear weapons, prompted by its noble sense of obligation to defend the sovereignty and dignity of the nation more valuable than one's own life in the face of the high-handed and arbitrary practices of the U.S. and other big powers and usher in the historic era of independent reunification and peace and prosperity for all the generations to come by its own efforts.

It is the truth proven by history that one has to build up one's own strength in order to protect the dignity and sovereignty of the nation. -0-

KCNA Commentary on Unfair Double-dealing Standard

Pyongyang, January 17 (KCNA) -- Some countries are vying with each other to test-fire inter-continental ballistic rockets and all other types of rockets.
The international community is taking note of the fact that the U.S. and the UN Security Council have kept mum about those test-fires while cooking up brigandish "sanctions resolutions" over the regular rocket test-fire by the army of the DPRK and its exercise of the right to launch satellites for peaceful purposes, justified by international law, after labeling them "provocation" and "threat."

Acting by the double-dealing standard unilaterally set by the U.S. in its interests, the UN brands the legitimate exercise of the sovereignty by an independent country as "illegal" and its measure for self-defence "provocation". But some countries are allowed to conduct such test-fires, unhindered.
This is a reality on the UN arena at present.

This cannot but be the height of partiality and double-dealing standard and an expression of serious prejudice.
Each country and nation has the same commitments and the same right to exercise in international relations before the international community.

The application of double-dealing standard amounts to hideous arbitrary practices and it is nothing beneficial to the development of international relations at present.

A sovereign state's measures for bolstering up its military capabilities to defend its independence and territorial integrity can never be subject to criticism and interference by the world body under any circumstances.
However, the U.S. has unhesitatingly used its double-dealing standard against those countries aspiring after independence against imperialism with differing ideologies and social systems, utterly disregarding the mission and role of international law and international organizations in pursuance of world hegemony.

Owing to the U.S. reckless moves for bolstering up its nuclear force and modernizing them, the instability and danger of a nuclear war are now escalating on the earth and nuclear weapons states are improving their strategic nuclear forces both in quantity and quality to cope with them.
It was inevitable and entirely just for the DPRK to have had access to nuclear deterrent for self-defence and bolstered up it as it is always exposed to the direct nuclear threat of the U.S. at a time when even those countries having vast territories and big populations and huge economic potentials are giving top priority to the measures for reinforcing nuclear forces for state development and security.

In order to cope with the evermore escalating U.S. nuclear threat and blackmail, the DPRK succeeded in the test of first H-bomb, test-fire of various offensive means and nuclear warhead explosion and entered the final stage of the preparations for the inter-continental ballistic rocket and achieved signal successes in the field of strategic nuclear force.

The DPRK's measures for bolstering up nuclear force are self-defensive ones to cope with the U.S. vicious nuclear threat and blackmail. They reflect the determination of the army and people of the DPRK to counter nukes and ICBM in kind.
The DPRK has never recognized the unreasonable resolutions adopted by the UNSC against it with the U.S. double-dealing standard.

As long as the imperialists and hegemonic forces scheme to bring down the socialist system in the DPRK, it will further increase its military muscle, protect the peace and security of the country by its own efforts and invariably pursue its line in the future, too. -0-

KCNA Commentary Ridicules Hysteric Actions of S. Korean Military

Pyongyang, December 20 (KCNA) -- The south Korean warmongers are going ever more crazy with arms build-up in a bid to escalate confrontation with the compatriots in the north.
The south Korean puppet military purchased German-made air-to-ground missile Taurus while talking about the "precision attack on Pyongyang" in the wake of introduction of a U.S. nuclear submarine.

They are nothing but hysteric actions to get rid of extreme uneasiness caused by the ruinous situation at home and the reckless confrontation racket to seek a way out in escalating the tension.
The candlelight actions to judge Park Geun Hye now sweeping across south Korea are getting fiercer day by day to make a clean sweep of all traitors engrossed in sycophancy and acts of treachery, confrontation with compatriots and unpopular rule.

The south Korean military is seized with uneasiness and fear, foreseeing the tragic end of Park Geun Hye more dead than alive.
The puppet warmongers took the lead in selling off the nation's interests as evidenced by their acts of pushing the inter-Korean relations to the worst confrontational phase and leaving OPECON to the tender mercy of outside forces for an indefinite period at the instructions of Park, marionette of a shaman.

Much upset by the angered public pushing the Park group to the court of history hour by hour, the puppet military is working hard to seek a way out in escalating the tension at the instigation of its master.
Even in the grip of the worst crisis caused by the hideous scandal, the puppet military rapidly concluded an agreement on protecting military intelligence with Japan, the sworn enemy, and is working hard to conclude an agreement on logistic support with Japan.

Despite strong opposition to the THAAD deployment at home and abroad and the serious consequences to be entailed by it, the warmongers announced that they would complete it before May next year as demanded by their American master.
Meanwhile, they are staging ceaseless anti-DPRK war drills aimed at deliberately creating "security crisis" and "security unrest" in a bid to divert the public criticism elsewhere.

No sooner had the motion on impeachment of Park passed through the "National Assembly" than brass hats of the puppet military appeared at forefront units every day to make such war drumbeats as "strong and resolute counteraction" against the DPRK's "surprise provocation".
They held one war confab after another to cry out for "establishing mental and physical readiness" and beg the U.S. to "provide increased force for monitoring the north's moves" allegedly to cope with its "possible provocation."

At a time when its U.S. master is unable to sleep in peace for fear of the DPRK's powerful nuclear deterrent, the puppet military is getting frantic with the moves to escalate the tension and ignite a war. This reminds one of desperate wriggling of tiger moths before perishing in flames.
The warmongers would be well advised to ponder over their miserable end. -0-

KCNA Commentary Ridicules Japan, Human Rights Abuser

Pyongyang, December 10 (KCNA) -- The missing Japanese who were reportedly abducted by the DPRK are appearing one after another.
According to Sankei Shimbun, the public security department of the Tokyo Metropolitan Police Agency announced on Dec. 1 that Masanori Katsuki, who went missing in Etogawa District, Tokyo, at the age of 36 in Feb. 1985 and had been believed to be kidnapped by north Korea, was found in Japan in the latter half of November when he is 68 years old.

Earlier in June last the Fukui Prefectural police disclosed that Kazuya Miyauchi whom they claimed to be abducted by north Korea in 1997 at the age of 32 was found in Japan.
Japan has become reckless in the human rights campaign against the DPRK over the "abduction issue" already settled.
The appearance of the missing persons in recent years glaringly reveals truth about Japan's serious human rights abuses in the eyes of the international community.

It is a well-known fact that whenever an opportunity presented itself, Japan behaved mischievously under the guise of a "victim of abduction".
The Japanese government has taken the lead in the anti-DPRK campaign, extending the sanctions against the DPRK every year which were imposed on it under the pretext of the "abduction issue." It is evading its apology and reparation for its unprecedentedly hideous crimes against humanity in a bid to calm down the voices of the international community demanding it redress them.

In fact, Japan is a serious human rights abuser who is not entitled to take issue with the DPRK.
In the past Japan forcibly drafted over 8.4 million young and middle-aged Koreans to force them to slave labor or hurled many of them into shambles of war of aggression as cannon fodder and massacred more than one million Koreans in cold blood. Moreover, it forced 200 000 Korean women into sexual slavery for the imperial Japanese army, violating their chastity.

This notwithstanding, Japan played a leading role in the fabrication of the U.S.-sponsored anti-DPRK "human rights resolution" in the UN, becoming more talkative about "human rights" than anybody else.
Japan is styling itself "champion of human rights" though it made not only the people of Korea but also other Asian nations shed blood. This reminds one of a wolf pretending to be a lamb.
Japan would be well advised to reflect on itself as it is bereft of any elementary moral justification and decency. -0-

KCNA Commentary Warns Japan of Its Revival of Militarism

Pyongyang, November 28 (KCNA) -- Japan decided to give a task for going into urgent action under the "security legislation" to the unit of the Ground "Self-Defense Force" to be dispatched to South Sudan at the ministerial meeting on Nov. 15. According to the "urgent action," it will start its operation from December 12.

This is a part of the reckless moves of the Japanese reactionaries to revive militarism escalating under the signboard of "peace-keeping activities."
Now the Japanese authorities claim that the new task is to "ensure peace and security in the region and it is a new step in the history of Self-Defense Forces (SDF) for international peace-keeping cooperation."

This is a serious mockery of the international community.
Explicitly speaking, Japan has no qualifications to talk about world peace and security. Japan is the war criminal state which imposed immeasurable misfortune and pain upon mankind in the first half of the last century and caused disastrous consequences to ensuring world peace and security.

Japan is the only country which has not yet sincerely admitted its crimes but evaded its obligation to make reparation to the victims.
Furthermore, Japan is going reckless obsessed with the daydream for becoming "the leader of East" by enforcing a law on war.

Japan expanded the sphere of action of the SDF which had been limited to surrounding areas of Japan to worldwide and made it possible to conduct military actions anywhere under the pretext of military support for the U.S. and other allies by amending the "Japan-U.S. Defence Cooperation Guidelines" and adopting the "security legislation".

The "law on the readjustment of peace and security legislation," one of the main contents of the "security legislation", is paving the way for SDF to join in a war ignited by the U.S. forces and other allied forces anywhere in the world.
That is why the "security legislation" is inviting strong opposition at home and abroad.
The Japanese reactionaries advertise that the "security legislation" is a peace law, but the Japanese people branded it as a law of war and oppose any action pursuant to it.

According to a recent opinion poll conducted by Kyodo News, most of the respondents said "no" to the task for "urgent action" in South Sudan.
Meanwhile, the participants in the rally held in Misawa City, Aomori Prefecture, strongly protested against the dispatch of forces to dangerous strife-torn areas abroad, saying that it is to make the government acquire concessions through war.

This reflects the instable mindset of the Japanese people that Japan would be embroiled in a war again through the revision of the constitution and overseas dispatch of the SDF being pushed forward by the Abe ruling quarters.
The international community neither asks nor wants Japan, which is reviving as an extremely dangerous aggression force and war force, to make contributions to world peace.

The new task for urgent action given to the Ground "Self-Defense Force" is a "new step" for war, not "international peace", revealing the militarist picture of Japan in the reckless moves once again.
The world people should heighten vigilance against Japan's bid to revive militarism, clearly understanding its danger. -0-

KCNA Commentary Assails U.S. Moves to Step up Deployment of THAAD in South Korea

Pyongyang, November 11 (KCNA) -- The U.S. is putting spurs to the moves for deploying THAAD despite the scandal-ridden political climate in south Korea.
Against the backdrop of the ceaseless disclosure of evidence of the scandal called "Choe Sun Sil Gate" that has driven traitor Park Geun Hye to a pretty fix, high-ranking officials of the U.S. Departments of State and Defense are noisily trumpeting about the projected THAAD deployment in south Korea.

The U.S. assistant secretary of State for East Asia-Pacific affairs was reported to have said at a press interview in Washington on Nov. 3 that "U.S.-south Korea alliance would remain strong as has been for 60 odd years despite any political climate in Seoul" and "there would be no change in the major priority tasks of the alliance including the projected deployment of THAAD."

The commander of the U.S. forces in south Korea reaffirmed at a lecture in Seoul on Nov. 4 the earlier deployment of THAAD though it had been scheduled for late 2017, asserting "the U.S. is strongly willing to push ahead with the deployment of THAAD in south Korea and it is expected to be deployed in 8 to 10 months to come." He openly blustered the scale of THAAD to be deployed in south Korea would be bigger than the one on Guam.
This reveals the greedy nature of the Yankee "gentlemen" persistently seeking their strategic interests only even at a time when their hand-raised Park's regime is on the verge of collapse.

For the U.S., traitor Park is no more than a dog-like colonial slave fawning upon her master to prolong her remaining days.
The U.S., being indifferent to the plight of Park who is more dead than alive after being forsaken by the people and to the chaos of the south Korean society, seeks to deploy THAAD earlier at any cost by pressurizing her regime and thus turn south Korea into a hotbed of nuclear war.

THAAD deployment is part of the foolhardy arms buildup of the U.S. to secure absolute military edge over major big powers.
The U.S. concedes that it cannot hold political and military hegemony in the region unless it sets up a perfect MD system and modernizes its forces to be strong enough to neutralize the attack capability of the rapidly developing regional powers.

The projected THAAD deployment is a risky move to invite a new Cold War in Asia-Pacific as it will upset the strategic balance in the region, directly containing China and Russia by force of arms.

An arms race and a new Cold War are looming in Asia-Pacific with the projected THAAD deployment as a momentum.
That's why the countries around the Korean peninsula are exerting efforts to bolster their military capability to cope with the deployment of THAAD, keeping high vigilance against it with growing concern.

No wonder, China and Russia have opted for an all-out offensive to halt the deployment, contending that THAAD would seriously upset the strategic equilibrium in the region and disturb their strategic security and interests.
U.S. politicians had better drop their anachronistic wild ambition for dominating the world, though belatedly, if they are far-sighted. -0-

KCNA Commentary Accuses Obama Group of Invective Hurting Dignity of DPRK

Pyongyang, October 29 (KCNA) -- The Obama group before retirement are expending their last efforts in their campaign to hurt the dignity of the DPRK.
Warlike boss Obama at the UN General Assembly cried out for forcing the DPRK to pay a "high price." The U.S. secretary of State and the assistant secretary of State called the dignified DPRK "illegal and illegitimate regime".
Evil words spit by the ignorant Obama group obsessed with ill-intended inveterate repugnancy toward the DPRK are very hackneyed ones mouthed by them as chronic ill during the whole period of their term.

Great irony is the poor image of the Obama group grumbling about the DPRK just before retirement as people say that habit is a second nature.
A string of invective let out by the Obama group is nothing but gibberish talked by those who are more dead than alive as they are in a miserable position to leave its failed policy towards the DPRK to the next administration, after suffering bitter setbacks in the political and military standoff with it.

As its hostile policy toward the DPRK proved to be a total failure, the Obama administration has no alternative but to leave the issue of "its legacy" called "DPRK capable of mounting a nuclear attack on the U.S. mainland" to be settled by the next administration.
Obama has persisted in nuclear blackmail and military threat and unprecedented sanctions against the DPRK, with the wild ambition for stifling it. This only pushed the DPRK to nuclear weaponization at a high level and emergence of a full-fledged nuclear power with the strongest nuclear strike capability.

After all, the reckless remarks made by the Obama group from the beginning of his term ended up admitting and hyping its heavy defeat.
"Due punishment" of someone much touted by Obama since he took power is now directed to the U.S. mainland. It has forced the DPRK to make a "cool option", but the latter is now dictating the former to choose between rolling back its hostile policy toward the latter and going to ruin.
Even American politicians sharply criticize almost every day the Obama administration, saying that its policy for invading the DPRK called "strategic patience" has gone totally bust as it pushed the DPRK to "strengthening its system" and "taking nuclear weapons".

It is the nature of a silly dog to bark at the jaw of death.
The more malignantly the Obama group lets out invective to save its face under the eyes of the world, the more saliently it will reveal the wretched and pitiable plight of the loser.
The Obama group would be well advised to behave with prudence and self-control and pack and leave the White House earlier in order not to suffer bitterer shame and setback.
The American politicians had better draw a lesson from the policy failures of the Obama administration. -0-

Japan's Moves to Emerge Military Giant Should Not Be Allowed: KCNA Commentary

Pyongyang, September 24 (KCNA) -- Japan's moves to emerge a military giant have reached a grave phase.
Recently the Defense Ministry of Japan formally announced that the first joint drill of fighters of the Japan Air "Self-Defense Force" and the UK Air Force would be held in the sky above Japan from the middle of October.

This is part of the moves of the Japanese reactionaries to convert Japan into a military giant as they are working hard to realize their militarist ambition at any cost with the backing of the U.S. keen to dominate the world. They are naturally arousing high vigilance among regional countries.
No matter what fig-leaf Japan uses to hide the nature of the projected drill, no country in the region would be taken in by it.

Japan is a war criminal which imposed immeasurable misfortune and pain upon the Asian people including Koreans through ceaseless wars of aggression in the last century.
Japan is the only shameless country in the world which has persistently denied its state obligation to make an apology and reparation to those countries which suffered from its aggression, refusing to admit its crimes in the past.

Nevertheless, Japan is putting spurs to the moves to turn itself into a military giant though it is the defeated nation which is banned from having any right to belligerency or right to participate in a war and a regular army by its Constitution.
Japan expanded to worldwide the scope of actions of its "Self-Defense Forces" (SDF) which had been limited to its vicinity through the revision of the "Japan-U.S. Defense Cooperation Guidelines" and adoption of "security legislation". It is now allowed to exercise the "right to collective self-defense" under the pretext of military support to allies.

The present Japanese government is going busy developing and purchasing modern weapons and equipment. It shaped a defense budget for fiscal 2017 amounting to 51.6 billion U.S. dollars, an all-time high in its history. Its SDF is staging ceaseless military drills in the sky and on the ground and sea.

Japan has never dropped its wild ambition for becoming "leader of East Asia" with the backing of big powers. Just as Japanese public disclosed, "the ulterior goal of the Abe Cabinet is to fight a war alongside the U.S., unhindered overseas."
In-fight tankers will be massively involved in the upcoming joint drill, going beyond the scope of "defending the territory." This fact clearly shows Japan's militarist ambition for reinvading Asian countries.

It is as clear as noonday that what horrible misfortune and pain will bring to humankind if Japan ignites a war of aggression again.
Japan is, indeed, a destabilizing factor and fascist state in the East as it is creating military tension in Asia and gravely threatening world peace and security.

What should not be overlooked is that the UK is joining in the criminal moves of the Japanese reactionaries.
The UK's intention to let its fighter jets fly in the sky above the areas around the Korean Peninsula thousands of kilometers away from its mainland is a very dangerous action zealously spurring Japan's militarization and helping realize its ambition for reinvasion.

The UK suffered huge damage due to fascism in the last century and was subject to disgrace of offering cannon fodder to the U.S. during the Korean War. However, it is acting in concert with Japan under the baton of the U.S. again, oblivious of the lesson taught by history. This is an act of tarnishing its image itself.
And it is as good as betraying the international community opposed to fascism and war.
Japan's above-said moves will only face stronger rebuff and opposition from the peoples of Asia and the rest of the world. -0-

EU Countries' Arms Sale to Mideast Will Only Stoke Instability and Confrontation: KCNA Commentary

Pyongyang, August 15 (KCNA) -- European countries' recent massive arms sales to the Mideast countries where the situation remains complicated are arousing concern of the international community.
Shortly ago, Germany announced a plan to sell torpedo boats, submarines and tanks worth billions of euros to Egypt, Kuwait, Oman and other countries in the wake of its approval of sale of 48 patrol boats to Saudi Arabia. France made contracts with Qatar, Egypt, Kuwait and other countries last year on sale of fighter jets, attack copters and frigates worth about 8 billion euros and began the delivery of the jets. Bulgaria, Romania, Slovakia and other east European countries sold various type weapons worth 1.2 billion euros to dispute-torn Mideast countries including Syria and Yemen.

According to a report released by international survey organizations, a lot of weapons exported by east European countries for the past 4 years are being used by terrorist organizations like "Islamic State".
The European public and media are terming the arms sales of European countries an "act of exporting death." They comment that the situation in the war-torn Mideast including civil wars in Syria and Yemen are tragic consequences of the irresponsible arms export policy by the governments of European countries.

This goes to prove that the reckless arms sales of European countries have become another factor of increasing tensions and fostering human rights abuses in the dispute-torn Mideast.

The above-said increasing arms sales are illegal and unethical acts quite contrary to the codes concerning arms export established by them and the ardent desire of humankind for peace and stability.
EU arms export regulations stipulate that export of military technology and supplies should be banned in case they may be used for sparking or prolonging armed clashes and escalating tensions in the country which purchased them.

Laws of European countries concerning arms control ban arms sale if weapons create the danger of wrecking peace or being used for a war.
As European countries massively sold weapons to dispute-torn Mideast for raking up profits in disregard of those regulations, the situation is getting tenser and the refugee crisis is now beyond control.
Their sale of offensive weapons to south Korea, in particular, is resulting in escalating reckless confrontation to disturb regional peace and security.

In the past European countries talked about "stability of situation" and "peace" louder than any others. Politicians of Europe said that Europe would make a positive contribution to bringing about detente and promoting the peace process on the Korean peninsula.

It is, indeed, preposterous for European countries to take issue with the DPRK over its just steps for self-defence, terming them "violations of international law."
European countries would be well advised to keep mum if they are not in a position to do anything helpful to ensuring peace on the Korean peninsula. -0-

Korean People Will Surely Force Japan to Pay for Its Crimes down through Generations- KCNA Commentary

Pyongyang, August 12 (KCNA) -- It is 71 years since the defeat of the Japanese imperialists who inflicted untold misfortune and pain upon the Korean nation and other Asian people.
Japan is, however, adding to its past crimes, refusing to redeem its crime-woven past even now.

The Japanese imperialists invaded Korea and desperately worked to exterminate the Korean nation in a sinister bid to realize its wild dream of "Greater East Asia Co-prosperity Sphere."
The Japanese imperialists' massacres of Koreans were the most heinous and shuddering crimes against humanity that baffled human imagination.

They mercilessly killed in all brutal manners the Koreans who resisted against their invasion of Korea.
They made no scruple of reducing even peaceable inhabitants to victims of their scenario for dominating Asia.

Their massacre of Koreans in the wake of the Kanto great quake was clear evidence proving Japan's mass killings of Koreans committed out of chauvinism.
According to data of the Japanese "government-general in Korea" only, at least 23 000 Koreans were killed in the wake of the quake.

The Japanese imperialists forcibly took more than 8.4 million young and middle-aged Koreans to battle fields for aggression and slave labor sites. They abducted 200 000 Korean women, forcing them into sexual slavery. Many of them were mercilessly killed.
They made no scruple of committing such shuddering cannibalism as eating flesh of young Koreans in shambles of war during the Pacific War.
More than a million young and middle-aged Koreans lost their lives in battle fields and slave labor sites of the Japanese imperialists.

The horrible massacres committed by the Japanese imperialists were vividly manifested in mercilessly killing 146 000 out of 200 000 Korean women forced into sexual slavery.
The massacres committed by the Japanese barbarians were the most hideous crimes against humanity unprecedented in history of any country in the world.

The unimaginably thrice-cursed massacres were not perpetrated by them during the modern times and their colonial rule over Korea only.
Their brutal massacres of Koreans dated back to the period of Koryo Kingdom when they launched invasion of it and their ferocity and brutality reached their height during the Imjin Patriotic War (1592-1598).

The shuddering massacres perpetrated by Japanese murderers throughout centuries were genocides to exterminate the Korean nation and build a criminal state, kingdom of murderers on the land of Korea.

The Japanese murderers' mass killings were unprecedentedly monstrous crimes against humanity that put into the shade the Yankees' mass killings of Indians, Hitler fascist junta's genocide of Jews in the light of organized backing from the state, persistence and scale of killings and cruelty in their methods.

Nevertheless, the Japanese reactionaries, far from making a sincere apology to the Korean people and the world for their crimes against humanity, have persistently distorted history by denying and embellishing it and pursued their policy hostile to the DPRK.

In particular, the reactionaries are resorting to anti-DPRK "human rights" racket and the moves to isolate and stifle the DPRK, hyping the "issue of abduction" which was already settled by the DPRK-Japan Pyongyang Declaration. They openly reveal their wild ambition to launch reinvasion.

All facts go to prove that Japan works hard to evade its state responsibility for making apology and reparation for all crimes committed against the Korean people, while scheming to realize at any cost the old dream of "Greater East Asia Co-prosperity Sphere" by imbuing the Japanese society with hostility toward the DPRK and militarism.

The Japanese imperialists' colonial rule over Korea ended long ago but Japan's history of unethical crimes has not ended at all.
If Japan persists in its moves for reinvasion, far from drawing a lesson from its crime-woven history, it will commit more indelible crimes against humanity to which no statue of limitation is applicable.

Gone are the days when Japan occupied and dominated other's land in a brigandish manner.
The service personnel and people of the DPRK will surely force the sworn enemy Japan to pay dearly for its thrice-cursed crimes down through generations. -0-

KCNA Commentary Demands U.S. Roll back Its Hostile Policy toward DPRK

Pyongyang, July 4 (KCNA) -- Recently, a vice-director of an institute for international political and military studies in a Western country termed the row of "sanctions" being kicked up by the U.S. against the DPRK over the latter's access to nukes and rocket launches for self-defence the height of double and treble standards unreasonable in the light of international law.

Not a few Western media including Yahoo News and Reddit of the U.S. made analysis and comments, claiming that no matter how frequently the UNSC may release "sanctions resolutions" and press statements, they cannot hold anything in check, to say nothing of the DPRK's rocket launches, a proof that "sanctions" themselves prove unworkable.

This tells that the fair-minded international community is acknowledging the illegality of the U.S. "sanctions" against the DPRK and their inevitable bankruptcy.
With no rhetoric to paint its anti-DPRK "sanctions" as ones for peace and security can the U.S. put under carpet the criminal nature of its vicious hostile moves against the DPRK.

The U.S. kept mum about the satellite launch conducted by south Korea with other's help in January 2013. In 2012 it allowed south Korea to expand its missile firing range so that it might put the whole territory of the DPRK within its firing range and strike it.
The U.S. is getting desperate in its nuclear blackmail and modernization of its nuclear force in a bid to stifle the DPRK and dominate the world but is working hard to ratchet up the "sanctions" against the DPRK over its steps for self-defence which are just in the light of international law.

In a word, its "sanctions" racket is nothing but a hideous scenario for aggression as it is aimed to suffocate the economy of the DPRK and deteriorate the overall material and cultural life of its people under the pretext of scuttling its nuclear and missile programs and thus realize the wild ambition for stifling it, a main link in Washington's chain efforts for dominating the world.

It is quite natural that the U.S. illegal moves against the DPRK being stepped up pursuant to the outrageous hostile policy toward it are sparking strong protest and denunciation from the DPRK and the world public.
The service personnel and people of the DPRK have turned Juche Korea into the only independent, self-supporting and self-developing great power in the world despite the "harshest sanctions" of the U.S. imperialists and their vassal forces.

The DPRK has emerged a nuclear power in the East possessed of miniaturized, light and diversified nukes and the strongest military power with medium long-range strategic ballistic rocket of its own style.
The more desperate efforts being made by the U.S. to escalate its "sanctions" and pressure upon the DPRK would only compel the latter to further bolster up its capabilities for self-development and retaliatory nuclear strike.
The U.S. anachronistic hostile policy toward the DPRK will only precipitate its miserable self-ruin. -0-

KCNA Commentary Ridicules Park Geun Hye's Burlesque

Pyongyang, June 9 (KCNA) -- The south Korean chief executive Park Geun Hye who had expended all her energies for soliciting "cooperation in the campaign to force the north to dismantle nukes" during her recent junket to Africa was so seriously exhausted that she was administered intravenous drip injection and had a rest.

She had drip injections when she visited Canada and took part in the UN General Assembly in September, 2014 and when she visited American countries in April last year all to beg for cooperation in her moves for escalating confrontation with the fellow countrymen in the north. These became a laughing stock of the international community.

Touring African countries this time, too, Park cried out for "consistent reaction of the international community" while terming the nuclear development of the DPRK "a serious threat to the world peace". Her trip was clearly aimed at escalating confrontation with the DPRK as she disclosed her despicable intention to slander the fellow countrymen in utter disregard of to whom she was talking and how they are responding to her.

What she did during her junket to Africa touched off indignation and rage of all the Koreans as she stooped to any infamy to serve the purpose of garnering support for her policy for confrontation with the DPRK from outsiders and doing harm to her fellow countrymen through conspiracy with outsiders.

Sophism and vituperation of Park are just the symptom of confrontational maniac on the deathbed totally bereft of normal thinking and judging faculties. They are just hysteric fit to cover up the sacred mission and peace-loving nature of the nuclear weapons of the DPRK and to keep afloat the cooperation in the efforts to escalate confrontation with the DPRK.

She hurled mud at the DPRK's line for simultaneous development of the two fronts and its measure for bolstering capabilities for self-defence and worked hard to build up international public opinion over the non-existent "threat." By doing so she sought to justify her long bankrupt policy for confrontation with the DPRK and do harm to and stifle the fellow countrymen at any cost with the help of outsiders.

The DPRK's nuclear deterrence is neither a means for negotiations nor a bargaining chip for getting something.
Our nuclear weapons are a treasured sword for peace and stability on the Korean peninsula and peace in Northeast Asia and the rest of the world, and are also treasure common to the nation which guarantees the nation's reconciliation and reunification.

It is quite natural for the DPRK to bolster deterrence for self-defence in every way with the nuclear weapons as a backbone to cope with the open threat of war from the aggressors and provokers, and no one is entitled to slander this.
To deny the DPRK's line on simultaneous development of the two fronts and its measure for bolstering capabilities for self-defence is a denial of the political system in the DPRK and an insult to its dignity and sovereignty.

It is foolhardy for Park to dare try to do harm to the DPRK through mendicant diplomacy by frequently visiting outsiders. No matter how frequently she stages rackets for isolating and stifling the DPRK in collusion with outsiders, they will only bring her curse and denunciation from the nation and shame in the world eyes.
Park had better drop the unrealizable ambition for forcing "the north to scrap nuclear weapons" and properly face up to the world and behave herself. -0-

KCNA Commentary Censures Park Geun Hye for Pursuing Policies, Bogged down in Ditch

Pyongyang, May 2 (KCNA) -- Park Geun Hye, the nation's trouble maker, keeps pursuing disgusting policies, bogged down in a ditch.
Grudge is running high against traitor Park Geun Hye who totally failed in politics and economy and brought the inter-Korean relations to a total collapse. Against this background she recently brought together human scum as part of the charade to maintain the regime, bringing to light her despicable and disgusting true colors to make matters worse.

Of late south Korean media disclosed that Chongwadae instructed the "Oboi Yonhap", notorious ultra-rightist conservative body, through the executive officer of its office of the chief secretary for political affairs, to hold a meeting supporting the humiliating "agreement" on the issue of sexual slavery for the Imperial Japanese Army early this year and let the "National Businessmen's Association" (Jongyongryon), the group of plutocrats, and other organization to provide funds to the above-said body.

It was said that the amount of the funds the "Oboi Yonhap" received from Jongyongryon in the name of "operation fund" from September to November, 2014 reached 120 million won.
This is a true story about her foul politics.
Park's affection for the "Oboi Yonhap" deserves an ill-fame.
She is apt to call this ultra-rightist conservative group each time she makes a trouble as she finds it perfectly suited to her treacherous and unpopular political motive.

The south Korean puppet group struck a "deal" on the issue of sexual slavery for the Imperial Japanese Army at the talks with the Japanese foreign minister in Seoul late last year. This sparked off criticism among Koreans and other people of the world for being the "second south Korea-Japan treaty."

At the talks Japan, in fact, denied the responsibility for its past crimes and evaded the reparation for them by uttering the ambiguous word of "apology" and making the promise to offer a petty amount of financial aid while the south Korean traitors overlooked Japan's distortion of history and promised to remove the statue of a girl sexual slave for the Imperial Japanese Army standing in front of the Japanese embassy in Seoul and stop the accusation against Japan in international arenas, thrice-cursed acts of treachery.

The "agreement" made between the south Korean regime and the Japanese reactionaries was the height of the former's sycophancy towards Japan and craftiness and shamelessness peculiar to Japan.

When rallies and demonstrations demanding the total nullification of the criminal "agreement" took place in south Korea almost every day and the public became ever more vocal critical of it, the Park group gave an instruction to the "Oboi Yonhap" to hold a rally in support of the "agreement" and let the plutocrats give it a generous reward for the event.
Chongwadae has hurled a group of human scum into the operations for eliminating the public figures with different political views from it.

In January last year ultra-rightist conservative elements affiliated to the "Oboi Yonhap" thronged to the Seoul Central District Prosecutor's Office and demanded it impose a heavy penalty on Ri Sok Gi, lawmaker from the former Unified Progressive Party.
It was none other than the Park Geun Hye group of traitors who prodded the old members of the "Oboi Yonhap" and "the Society of Victims of Defoliants" and other ultra-rightist conservative gangsters into staging a "rally denouncing the followers of the north" in the heart of Seoul and conducting the operations for scattering leaflets against the compatriots in the north.

The Park group has been behind those who have zealously backed the conservative forces in their hysteric counteractions against the anti-"government" struggles of people of various circles in south Korea.
Park is a poor political charlatan keen on the trite political campaign by relying on the ultra-right maniacs forsaken by the public.
Her fate has already been sealed in the political landscape in south Korea becoming ever more corrupt with each passing day. -0-
