US Termed Arch Criminal Posing Nuclear Threat

Pyongyang, October 24 (KCNA) -- Documents proving the facts that the United States has attempted to use nuclear weapons against the DPRK for several decades were disclosed recently.

Minju Joson Sunday observes in a signed commentary in this regard:

These facts prove that the U.S. has long attempted to mount a preemptive nuclear attack on the DPRK, making clear who is posing a real nuclear threat to the Korean Peninsula.

With no rhetoric can the U.S. hide the recently disclosed facts as they were revealed by the U.S. government documents declassified on the lapse of 60 years since the start of the Korean War.

From the historical point of view, no nation in the world has been exposed to direct nuclear threat for such a long period as the Korean nation.

The U.S. imperialists started their nuclear blackmail against the Korean people from the 1950s. When the U.S. was driven into a tight corner after igniting the Korean War, it attempted to use even A-bombs to recover from its shameful setbacks.

After the ceasefire in the Korean War the U.S. massively shipped nuclear weapons into south Korea, threatening the DPRK with nukes.

The U.S. is becoming evermore undisguised in its nuclear threat to the DPRK. The U.S. published its "nuclear posture review" this year, too, posing an undisguised nuclear threat as evidenced by its listing of the DPRK as a target of nuclear attack. It is an undeniable true fact that the U.S. is the arch criminal posing a nuclear threat, gravely disturbing peace and security on the peninsula. It is the invariable intention of the U.S. to mount a preemptive attack on the DPRK with nukes to stifle it.

It was the only option for protecting the sovereignty of the country and security of the nation to counter "nukes" in kind as the U.S. brandished a nuclear stick and attempted to mount a preemptive nuclear attack on the DPRK. The U.S. extreme nuclear threat and blackmail persistently compelled the DPRK to have access to nuclear deterrent.

The present reality once again clearly proves the DPRK was entirely just when it had access to nuclear deterrence, concludes the commentary.
