KCNA Commentary Urges U.S. to Properly Understand Root Cause of Grave Situation in Korea

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

Pyongyang, April 17 (KCNA) -- The U.S. is becoming craftier in its moves to stifle the DPRK.

Having rapidly deployed huge armed forces for aggression on the Korean Peninsula and in its vicinity and rounded off the preparations for attack through Foal Eagle joint military exercises, the U.S. is now pretending to be interested in detente in a bid to mislead the public opinion.

Its high-ranking officials vied with each other to assert that "the U.S. keeps the door of dialogue with north Korea open," while disclosing before media that "planned military actions have been shelved" and "military-related meetings put off."

This is another poor charade to conceal its criminal nature as the arch criminal who created a touch-and-go situation on the peninsula. It is a product of base intrigues to shift the blame for tension on to the DPRK and invent a pretext for igniting a war.

What matters is that those following the U.S. are dancing to the tune of its farce.

As shown by history, truth cannot be voted down by a hand-raising machine.

If one truly wants to defuse the tension on the peninsula, one should properly understand its root cause.

The worst situation on the peninsula is entirely attributable to the U.S. vicious policy and hostile acts against the DPRK. It is pursuant to the U.S. sinister scenario to stifle the DPRK at the early stage of its historical turn.

To this end the U.S. stirred up an atmosphere of confrontation, terming the DPRK's legitimate satellite launch for peaceful purposes "a ballistic missile launch".

It kicked up much fuss over "provocation" though the DPRK's successful satellite launch was scientifically confirmed by the U.S. Space Command and academic circles.

When the DPRK conducted a nuclear test for self-defence to cope with the U.S. brigandish actions, it prodded the UN Security Council into cooking up "resolutions on sanctions" by using its hand-raising machine inside it. It staged Key Resolve and Foal Eagle war maneuvers, pushing the situation to the brink of war.

Much upset by the DPRK's declaration of an all-out action to put an end to the showdown with the U.S., nullification of the Armistice Agreement and a series of other toughest measures taken by it, the U.S. began to hatch new plots. This is evidenced by the "demonstration of armed forces against north" under the motto of provision of "nuclear umbrella" and diplomacy for international "pressure" under the pretext of so-called implementation of the UN "resolutions on sanctions".

In pursuance of its scenario, the U.S. is egging the Japanese reactionaries and south Korean puppet forces on to commit all provocations and smear campaigns extremely rattling the nerves of the DPRK.

Unlike frantic provocations of south Korean stooges the U.S. is busy orchestrating a charade to create an "atmosphere of dialogue" and meetings for "close touch and joint reaction" with neighboring counties in a bid to convince the international community of "belligerency" of the DPRK.

The U.S. is, however, seriously mistaken. With no rhetoric can it evade the blame for the grave situation on the peninsula.

This only goes to prove that the U.S. remains unchanged in its policy for stifling the DPRK and its scenario for a new war is being pushed forward at its final phase.

This is clear from the fact that the U.S. is playing a petty trick to slacken the alertness of the DPRK while talking about "peaceful atmosphere in Pyongyang", and taking much pain to spy on the intention of the DPRK while vociferating about someone's "propaganda warfare" and "psychological warfare". This will, however, no longer work on the DPRK.

As long as the U.S. hostile policy persists, peace and stability will not settle on the peninsula but will be put at greater peril and this will compel the DPRK to take tougher countermeasures.

The only way of settling the situation there is for the U.S. to roll back its hostile policy.

The U.S. would be well advised to bear in mind that it can never evade the blame for the grave situation prevailing on the Korean Peninsula.
