KCNA Dismisses US Reports on Human Rights Practices

Korean Central News Agency of DPRK via Korea News Service (KNS)

Pyongyang, March 18 (KCNA) -- The U.S. "Reports on Human Rights Practices for 2009" have been ridiculed by the international community.

The reports are nonsensical documents without any scientific accuracy as they grossly distorted human rights practices of many countries including the DPRK.

No country of the world recognizes such nonsensical documents and pays heed to them.

The U.S. claimed that it released the reports for "the protection of human rights." But it is a wanton violation of national sovereignty and a human rights abuse that the U.S. behaved as if it were "a human rights judge" in breach of the norm of international law calling for respect for sovereignty, though nobody entrusted such role to it.

It is none other than the U.S. that should be condemned for human rights abuses more bitterly than any others.

The U.S. is the worst country in the world where human existence and security are not guaranteed and elementary rights to social life are wantonly violated.

In 2008, U.S. residents experienced 4.9 million violent crimes and therefore, a lot of Americans suffered from them, according to a report published by the U.S. Department of Justice in September 2009.

In the U.S. it is the common life that individuals possess arms and kill each other. So, about 30,000 people die due to gun-related crimes and cases every year.

Unemployment, poverty and the homeless are very serious problems in the U.S. where working people's economic, social and cultural rights cannot be guaranteed.

Unemployment rate in the U.S. in 2009 was the highest in 26 years. And 39.8 million Americans were living in poverty by the end of 2008, an increase of 2.6 million over that in 2007. About 32,000 people commit suicides due to abject poverty in the U.S. each year, nearly double the cases of murder.

Dwelling houses should be cradles providing stable life and happiness to people. However, in the U.S. they have become objects of speculation and many people are left homeless in the same day. This is the American society where the people live in agony and despair due to the uncontrollable catastrophic financial and economic crises.

While vociferating about "freedom of speech" and "freedom of the press," the U.S. administration mercilessly abridges the freedom under various pretexts including that of "anti-terrorism."

The U.S. continued faking up information for the "war on terrorism" including the Iraqi war. This goes to patently prove how hypocritical and nonsensical the U.S. touted "freedom of the press" is.

After the U.S. invasion of Iraq in 2003, about one million civilians lost their lives in that country owing to the U.S. forces' military operations and violence, etc.

The "Abu Ghraib" prison bears witness to the shuddering human rights abuses being perpetrated by the U.S. forces in the "war on terrorism".

Americans' man-killing and human rights abuses are ceaselessly going on in Afghanistan and secret prisons in different parts of the world even today.

The U.S. is the country with the worst human rights record and the world's arch human rights abuser.

The U.S. interference in the internal affairs of other countries over human rights issues reminds one of a pupil trying to admonish his teacher.

How can the society where exploitation of man by man is institutionalized establish a correct conception on human rights? Is it possible to guarantee the genuine rights and ideal of the popular masses to lead a free and happy life in such unpopular country?

In the DPRK everything is made to serve the popular masses and the state enforces free health care and free compulsory education and provides them with de luxe houses free of charge. Is it conceivable in the U.S.?

As everything that cannot be dreamed of and everything impossible in the U.S. are becoming realities in the socialist society of the DPRK, its people devote themselves to the work for the country's prosperity and the victory of socialism with high pride and great attachment to it, and find worth and happiness in doing so.

No matter what rhetoric the U.S. may let loose, the army and people of the DPRK will confidently consolidate the Korean style socialist system centered on the popular masses that has grown stronger thanks to the Songun politics.
