Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD)

U.S. Chemical Warfare in Iraq under Fire

    Pyongyang, November 23 (KCNA) -- An Italian TV recently disclosed that the U.S. imperialist aggression troops used chemical weapons against civilians during their siege and assault operation against Fallujah City in Iraq last year. In this regard Rodong Sinmun Wednesday in a signed commentary says that the U.S. use of chemical weapons in Fallujah clearly reveals the true colors of the U.S. imperialists as the worst human rights abusers, most brutal man-killers and incarnation of evil.
    The commentary goes on:
    The above-said operation conducted by the U.S. forces against the citizens of Fallujah was a criminal act quite contrary to the Geneva convention on protecting civilians in wartime, which bans the indiscriminate attack causing massive casualties, and the convention banning chemical weapons signed by the U.S. in 1997.
    The U.S. is the biggest possessor of nuclear and biological and chemical weapons in the world. It has stockpiled at least 30,000 tons of chemical weapons. During the Balkan war, the U.S. imperialists used more than 41,000 depleted uranium shells in southern Kosovo, Serbia and Montenegro and other areas. They also used at least 300 tons of depleted uranium shells in the Persian Gulf War in 1991 and over 311,000 depleted uranium shells in the Iraq war. Their use of chemical weapons took lives of many civilians and severely destroyed ecological environment in the world. Their indiscriminate use of even chemical weapons to invade and plunder other countries is an unpardonable crime against humanity as it threatens the very existence of humankind. Nevertheless, the U.S. imperialists, keeping mum about their monstrous crimes, are raising a hue and cry over other countries' "possession of weapons of mass destruction" and "production of biological and chemical weapons" in a bid to blackmail and threaten them.
    What is more intolerable is that the U.S. dares pulls up the DPRK over its non-existent "human rights issue" in an effort to increase its sanctions and pressure upon it.
    The U.S. would be well advised to admit its crimes and kneel down before the international community to beg for forgiveness if it wishes to escape stronger protest and denunciation from the world people.
