US Scheme for Enhanced Offensive by Drone Blasted

Pyongyang, April 17 (KCNA) -- A legal advisor of the U.S. Department of State recently told that the U.S. government may use drones in armed conflicts with Al Qaeda, Taliban and other armed groups under the provision of "right to self-defence" stipulated in international law and that the U.S. precision strikes including drone-based attacks are conducted in "faithful obedience" to all applicable laws including the law on war.
Commenting on such reckless remarks, Rodong Sinmun Saturday says:
They are no more than shameless sophism that could be made only by the U.S. imperialist aggression forces engaged in war of aggression and killing.
With no justification can the U.S. cover up its foul colors as the chieftain of manslaughter.
To kill peaceable civilians by using drones is a never-to-be-condoned hideous crime as this new manslaughter warfare is in contravention of the requirement of international law including the UN Charter.
Nowadays the U.S. is seeking to attain its military aims through indiscriminate attacks by advanced war means strong in destructive and killing power while keeping its troops from closing in to fighting areas as much as possible.
It also intends to export such lethal weapons as drone to its allies in a bid to tide over the unfavorable situation of the "war on terrorism".
The U.S. is mistaken if it thinks it can retrieve its failure in the said war by expanding the area of drone attack.
The ceaseless crimes committed by the U.S. by killing civilians by the said means will result in nothing but intensified anti-U.S. resistance and denunciation against it in a worldwide scale. The U.S. would be well advised to judge the reality with cool head and stop its reckless act of harassing peace and killing people, the commentary urges.
