KCNA Commentary Lambastes U.S. Logic of "Disarming DPRK" and "Bringing down Its System"
Pyongyang, September 12 (KCNA) -- U.S. Secretary of State Hillary again cried out for "changes" and "reforms and opening" in the DPRK.

She at a huddle with traitor Lee Myung Bak of south Korea on September 9 accused the DPRK, claiming that "reform without denuclearization cannot be an alternative."

What she uttered cannot be overlooked as it reflected the present U.S. administration's policy toward the DPRK. Her remarks are nothing but rhetoric urging the DPRK to make a "policy change" such as "abandonment of nuclear weapons" and opt for "reform and opening" allegedly aimed at "improving the standard of people's living and recovering the economy" and calling for intensifying the offensive against the DPRK to pressurize it to do so.

These are very provocative outbursts as they only reveal the U.S. scenario to "disarm" the DPRK and "bring down its social system." This is evidenced by recent new developments inside and outside the U.S.

After regarding south Korea as an outpost for carrying out its Asia-Pacific strategy pursuant to its new defense strategy, the U.S. is bringing to light its attempt to stifle the DPRK through steady arms buildup in the Korean Peninsula and its vicinity and tightened alliance for a war, etc. New voices such as "concern over north Korea's possible use of bio-weapons" are heard one after another.

The commitments to the policy toward the DPRK made by the ruling and opposition parties of the U.S. and their candidates in the run-up to the presidential election are enough to prove this.

The Democratic Party of the U.S. in its new political guidelines said that "north Korea should take a crucial option: to take a verifiable step for denuclearization or pay a dear price after being further isolated in the international community."

The same can be said of the Republican Party side. It went the lengths of talking about even "steps after the collapse of the DPRK" in the wake of openly setting it as the target of its policy to "disarm the DPRK."

Facts go to clearly prove that the U.S. policy toward the DPRK remains unchanged and its intention not to antagonize the DPRK is no more than hypocrisy making a mockery of the international community.

"Policy change" and "reform and opening" touted by the U.S. only betray its utter ignorance and sinister design against the DPRK. The U.S. intensified hostile policy toward the DPRK will only prompt it to take stronger countermeasures including bolstering of nuclear deterrent and precipitate the U.S. final ruin.

The U.S. would be well advised to roll back its anachronistic policy toward the DPRK.
