US Accused of Straining Situation on Korean Peninsula

Pyongyang, June 1 (KCNA) -- The U.S. authorities are busy everyday taking the lead in the anti-DPRK smear campaign, groundlessly asserting that the sinking of warship "Cheonan" was a "provocation" of the DPRK, it "should pay dearly for the case" and "its act will entail adverse consequences" and the like. U.S. Congress is making much fuss, "adopting a resolution condemning north Korea" and "pushing forward a bill on financial sanctions against it." The U.S. went the lengths of vociferously crying out for tightening "sanctions" and increasing pressure upon the DPRK through the UN Security Council.
In this regard Rodong Sinmun Tuesday says in a signed commentary:
Such action indicates that the U.S. scenario for a war of aggression against the DPRK designed to tighten the international siege to the DPRK and isolate and stifle it with the above-said warship case as a momentum is now assuming unprecedentedly grave and dangerous nature.
It is a stereotyped trick of the U.S. to spark off conflict and trouble between fellow countrymen in a bid to fish in troubled waters.
The U.S., regarding the recent sinking of the south Korean puppet warship as a golden opportunity to ignite the second Korean war, zealously egged the puppet gang on to orchestrate a farce unreasonably branding the DPRK as "a suspect."
It is the ulterior aim of the U.S. to internationalize sanctions against the DPRK in a bid to stifle it and use south Korea as a servant for carrying out Washington's Asian strategy.
The U.S. Department of State held that the sinking of the warship was the matter irrelevant to the transfer of the "right to command wartime operations", but it is clear that the case is a product of the moves to justify the permanent presence of the U.S. forces in south Korea.
The case of the warship sinking also helped the U.S. settle the controversial issue of the U.S. military base in Futenma with ease.
The madcap anti-DPRK smear campaign of the U.S. and the south Korean puppet forces has created a touch-and-go situation on the Korean Peninsula and put the process of denuclearizing the peninsula on the verge of collapse. The whole buck stops with the U.S. and the south Korean puppet regime, concludes the commentary.
