U.S. Had Better Not to Miss Opportunity: KCNA Commentary

Pyongyang, May 11 (KCNA) -- There are a series of assertions that the Obama administration should boldly make a policy switchover now that the balance of force between the U.S. and the DPRK has changed.
The U.S. magazine Foreign Policy on April 27 carried an article on the Obama administration's failed policy towards the DPRK.
Recalling that in 1994 the Clinton regime made such agreement with north Korea as the DPRK-U.S. Agreed Framework, the article blamed the Obama regime for having blocked the channel of negotiations with north Korea only to push Pyongyang to further developing its nuclear weapons and missile program.
If the Obama administration sticks to the principle of not taking the lesson drawn from the 1990s into consideration at all nor engaging north Korea, it will miss the opportunity for good, it held.
As seen above, it is the requirement of the present developing situation that the U.S. should make an immediate switchover in its policy toward the DPRK as it compelled the DPRK to have access to a strong nuclear deterrent.
The U.S. is chiefly to blame for the escalating tensions on the Korean peninsula, the hottest spot in the world.
For more than half a century the U.S. has staged ceaseless mad-cap nuclear war drills for a nuclear attack on the DPRK after deploying a lot of nuclear weapons.
It has resorted to undisguised nuclear threat and blackmail against the DPRK after turning south Korea into the world's biggest nuclear arsenal and outpost for a nuclear war.
Washington openly put the DPRK on the list of targets of preemptive nuclear attack, made it its policy never to co-exist with the DPRK and has gone so reckless as to threaten to use nuclear force against it.
The present Obama regime set it as the pivot of its policy toward the DPRK to deny dialogue and wait with "patience" until the DPRK shows a sign of change in its actions like dismantlement of its nukes and has persistently pursued it since its emergence while imposing pressure and "sanctions" upon it.
Pursuant to it, joint military drills involving all types of lethal war hardware and huge aggressor troops have been staged every year in south Korea and its vicinity to seriously threaten the security of the DPRK, thus escalating the military threat seeking the "collapse of its social system."
The DPRK was entirely just and legitimate when it had access to nukes to protect its sovereignty and dignity of the nation from the ceaseless nuclear threat and blackmail and aggression by the U.S.
As the world's biggest nuclear weapons state U.S. has antagonized the DPRK and escalated nuclear threat, the DPRK was compelled to have access to nukes, and the Obama administration's DPRK policy pushed it to having access to H-bomb.
It is the undeniable stark reality that the DPRK, one of the advanced nuclear powers, is standing in confrontation with the U.S. by dint of its strong military muscle.
If the U.S. persists in its policy hostile to the DPRK, paying no heed to anyone's advice, the nuclear deterrent of the DPRK will be steadily bolstered up both in quality and quantity to defend the sovereignty of the country, vital rights of the nation and peace on the Korean peninsula and in other parts of the region.
Opportunity will not be given to the U.S. at all times. -0-
