U.S. Should Behave Itself: KCNA Commentary
Pyongyang, July 30 (KCNA) -- Strange is the assertion made by the U.S. as regards the statement issued by a spokesman for the Foreign Ministry of the DPRK on July 20 denouncing the U.S. for its criminal attempt to destroy statues.

A spokesman for East Asian and Pacific Affairs of the U.S. Department of State said that the U.S. has no hostile intent on the DPRK, adding it is hard to get anything through threat or provocation.

What he uttered means the U.S. has done nothing harmful but the DPRK is posing a threat to the U.S. and provoking it in quest of something.

The U.S. styling itself a super-power is deceiving the international community with very poor logic.

As already reported, the U.S. is the chief culprit deeply involved in the hideous state-sponsored terrorism.

The truth about it had already been proved by the testimony made by the arrested criminal and the confessions by those involved in the crime.

It is the typical method of aggression employed by the U.S. to instigate the operations to destabilize and undermine those countries which incur its displeasure and invent pretexts for carrying out military intervention and war against them.

The U.S. escalates the anti-DPRK psychological warfare and the operations every year, providing the anti-DPRK conspiratorial organizations with huge funds out of its annual special budget.

The U.S. decided to provide 10 million U.S. dollars to the bodies active for "destabilizing north Korea" this year.

This is a vivid expression of the U.S. hostile policy toward the DPRK as it is the most hostile action to bring down its socialist system.

The operation to destroy the statues, in particular, amounts to the most nefarious desecration of the dignity of the supreme leadership of the DPRK and insult to the mental mainstay of the Korean people and physical attack on it. This is little short of a war action as serious as invasion.

Now that the U.S. persists in its hostile acts, while saying it has no hostile intent on the DPRK, it is entirely just for it to bolster up its nuclear deterrence to guarantee the security of the country and the nation.

The U.S. has persistently pursued its hostile policy toward the DPRK including military threat, political pressure and economic sanctions for several decades. In recent years, it has become evermore undisguised in its moves to stifle the DPRK in international arena and is staging military drills against the DPRK every day in areas around the Korean Peninsula.

The U.S. disclosed its hostility towards the DPRK so fully that it is busy staging large-scale firing drills with DPRK flags as its targets. It is, however, working hard to create the impression that the DPRK threatens someone with nukes, saying that it has no hostile intent on the DPRK. This is nothing but rhetoric to justify its criminal hostile policy toward the DPRK.

The DPRK's deterrent force will steadily grow unless the U.S. rolls back its hostile policy towards the DPRK.

The U.S. would be well advised to behave itself in a responsible manner as regards the Korean issue.
