Imperialists' Sanctions Termed Trite Methods of Aggression

Pyongyang, November 15 (KCNA) -- Sanctions and blockade are the trite methods of aggression persistently employed by the imperialists, Rodong Sinmun Monday says in a signed article.

It goes on:

In the past the U.S. forced other countries to accept the Western-style political and economic modes, taking issue with their political systems and economic modes, when deeming them as contradicting its purpose of domination and plunder and asserting that "human rights" and "democracy" are problematic. But today it is slapping sanctions and blockade on those countries which incur its displeasure under horrendous charges of "terrorism" and "proliferation of WMD" and working hard to justify them.

The U.S. describes the economic sanctions as ones for ensuring global "peace and security", "democracy" and guaranteeing "human rights", but with no sophism can it hide the injustice and aggressive nature of its sanctions.

In recent years the U.S. has worked hard to lay an international siege to the DPRK, trumpeting about the "danger of the proliferation of WMD". It has run the whole gamut of methods including "appeasement", pressure for disarmament and military pressure in a bid to stifle the DPRK. When the U.S. found it not caving in to the former, it takes much pain to get something through sanctions. It is, however, a foolish pipe dream for the U.S. imperialists and their followers to try to browbeat the people of the DPRK with such sanctions and attain their sinister political and military aims.

If the confidence that international law and the Armistice Agreement and other mechanisms can deter a war sinks, there will be an inevitable demand for other deterrent.

It is self-evident that the DPRK will never remain a passive onlooker now that the U.S. and its lackeys' moves to slap harsher sanctions upon the DPRK are obviously deliberate and premeditated provocations aimed to ignite a war.
