Minju Joson Urges U.S. to Make Switchover in Policy towards DPRK

Pyongyang, September 7 (KCNA) -- In recent days experts on Korean affairs and media of the world share the views that the DPRK has made very rapid progress in the strategic offensive force.

Commenting on this, Minju Joson Wednesday observes:

Just as analyzed by experts and media, the fate of the U.S. is under the thumbs of the DPRK however hard the former tries to deny it.

What matters is that the U.S. neither recognizes this stark reality nor drops its foolish dream, sticking to its old-fashioned way of thinking.

The U.S. is absorbed in an old-fashioned confrontational concept, failing to seek a reasonable solution from an objective point of view. This stereotyped attitude can help anyone guess the intellectual level of the politicians of the U.S. styling itself "the only superpower."

This tells that a country cannot become a big power for having a huge territory and large population.

If a country wants to claim to be a big power, it should pursue politics befitting it and have a way of thinking as such.

If the U.S. persists in the policy of strength, preoccupied with the confrontational concept of the Cold War era, failing to notice the changed reality as now, it will never escape policy failures but become a laughing stock of others.

If the U.S. persistently infringes upon the sovereignty and dignity of the DPRK, the latter will proudly stand up against the U.S. and inflict a disgraceful setback upon it.

The U.S. would be well advised to come to its senses, though belatedly, drop its wild dream of stifling the DPRK and make a bold decision to make a policy switchover. -0-
