US WILL FACE DPRK'S TOUGHEST COUNTERACTION: FM SPOKESMAN
Pyongyang, December 15 (KCNA) -- The spokesman for the Foreign Ministry of the DPRK Monday gave the following answer to the question put by KCNA as regards the U.S. madcap "human rights" racket against the DPRK:
The U.S. has recently become all the more pronounced in its "human rights" offensive against the DPRK.
In the last one week alone, the U.S. secretary of State, the assistant secretary of State for East Asian and Pacific Affairs, the assistant secretary of State for Democracy, Human Rights and Labour, the "special envoy for human rights issue of North Korea" and the U.S. special representative for North Korea policy vied with each other to unhesitatingly let loose a string of invectives against the DPRK, taking issue with it over its "human rights issue".
The U.S. Department of State announced a detailed standard to provide funds to the anti-DPRK "human rights" organizations and the U.S. Congress adopted a "bill" calling on the administrator of the U.S. State Intelligence Agency and the U.S. secretary of State to spy on the internal affairs of the DPRK and gather information critical of it, becoming all the more undisguised in their moves to escalate confrontation with the latter over "human rights".
Such moves go to prove that the U.S. is regarding the "human rights" racket against the DPRK as a lever for bringing down its ideology and social system, politicizing it and stepping up it in a premeditated manner.
These actions mean that the U.S. reneged on the September 19 joint statement of the six-party talks which calls for respect for sovereignty and peaceful coexistence between the DPRK and the U.S.
Now that the U.S. is leaving no means untried to bring down the social system of the DPRK, the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula will completely lose its meaning.
The DPRK agreed on denuclearizing the Korean Peninsula not to allow the U.S. to swallow it up but to have the nuclear threat of the U.S. to the DPRK defused and peace and security on the peninsula ensured.
Now that the confrontation between the DPRK and the U.S. over human rights is high on the agenda, any dialogue on the nuclear issue is meaningless.
The U.S. is talking this or that about the release of Americans who had been detained in the DPRK. But the release was nothing but a cleaning work done by it to start confrontation with the U.S. over human rights, not to want dialogue with it.
In fact, the DPRK has more things to talk over human rights than the U.S.
It is the U.S. that is finding itself in a tight corner due to the disclosure of brutal tortures practiced by the CIA and the scandals of racial discrimination perpetrated by white policemen. It is again the U.S. and its lackeys who suffered shame while floating wild rumors about youngsters of the DPRK who returned home after being abducted by flesh traffickers.
This time U.S. Secretary of State Kerry made such disgusting gesture as openly praising a swindler, defector from the north, whom he has used for the anti-DPRK "human rights" racket. This clearly proved that he is going reckless, keen on moves hostile to the DPRK.
Former U.S. Secretary of State Powell was taken in by lies told by the CIA engrossed in gathering intelligence and inventing pretexts through tortures. But today Kerry is behaving like a fool, believing in the lies told by a "defector from the north."
The DPRK has already sent a video clip disclosing the true colors of the above-said swindler to Kerry through a relevant channel.
Washington's policy aimed to topple the social system of the DPRK over its "human rights issue" is no more than a daydream.
The U.S. will have to experience the toughest counteraction of the DPRK against its hostile policy towards the DPRK and be held wholly accountable for the derailing of the denuclearization on the Korean Peninsula.

US CITIZEN INTERVIEWED IN DPRK
Pyongyang, December 14 (KCNA) -- Arturo Pierre Martinez, a U.S. citizen staying in the DPRK, was interviewed by domestic and foreign press persons at the People's Palace of Culture here on Sunday.
He said at the interview:
Foremost I would like to thank the DPRK for allowing this press conference to take place as I requested. I would also like to express my gratitude to all the reporters who are in attendance. My name is Arturo Pierre Martinez, I am 29 year old citizen, a U.S. citizen born and raised in the city of El Paso, in the state of Texas. I have taken up a risky journey to the DPRK, so that I could pass along some very valuable and disturbing information, I felt its government would appreciate. It all started with first failed attempt to cross over from South Korea's Han River, and continued with my second attempt taken from China's own Yalu River in Dandong. The DPRK is the one of a kind nation and has held most true to its Socialist ways and has honorably continued to defend its people from the exploitive influence of America's imperial might and so I have chosen this nation to provide what I learned so that they might defend themselves from the imminent threat posed by the US government's most modern methods of destruction and assassination.
I would like to offer a sincere apology to the leadership of the DPRK, for knowingly having violated its nation's laws and boundaries by illegally entering as I did in such a foolish way, and am extremely grateful for having been pardoned from the punishments given to violators of these laws, and for the most generous reception I have received.
I am also deeply ashamed and regretful for not having seeped out other secure and alternative means of delivering the information I have provided nor able to visit this great nation and Socialist success story in a legal and proper manner.
Now I would like to reveal some facts about America's imperialistic influence and dominance as well as much of its corrupt and threatening practices through which it has proven itself to have little to no regard for human rights or serving the greater good.
Throughout its history, the United States of America has been a conqueror of nations. It has built its prosperity upon the domination of other people who have been unable to defend themselves militarily or politically. The illegal war carried out against the nation of Iraq serves as a perfect example of how the US government acts much like a Mafia Enterprise, but criminally plundering entire nations of their resources, strategic reserves and economies instead of smaller scale business and individuals, and does so without a code of ethics, easily killing numerous amounts of innocent people without accountability alongside the countless noble soldiers and armies which would stand in its way. For those countries it does not conquer militarily, it does so in a politically and economic manner.
America portrays itself as a friend of these emerging economies and put into power, corrupt politicians, who systematically dismantle their own country's power and potential through the Neo liberalization of their economies and the privatization of State Owned Natural Resources and Industries for the benefit of American Corporations and their associates. Domestically private industries and companies are then pit against the corporate giants of America in a losing battle through unfair trade agreements. This corrupt politicians then move on to have their governments take out needless and wasteful loans as directed by the IMF and World Bank, which further weakens the value and power of their nation's currency and make everything more expensive for the consumers.
The economic crisis that Mexico experienced in the 80's and Argentina experienced in 2001, clearly identify the outcome of surrendering. Mexico itself could have been a major economic power and great influence in global affairs through its natural geographic advantage which places it between the US and the rest of Latin America, but instead has had its industries and their wealth creation dominated by American corporations who leave its citizens nothing more than low wage positions with uncertain futures. Very dangerous criminal organizations have in in turn, offered doors of opportunity for those who have few, which has resulted in an epidemic of violence and substance abuse. Drug additions, murders, rapes, extortions, kidnappings and tortures have become the norm, and its effect on society has been reflected through the pop culturification of criminality as represented by the overwhelming amount of famous musicians who play songs dedicated to the drug cartels and their way of life, that in turn, shape the minds of Mexico's youth.
Politicians and law enforcement officials take part in the corruption and criminality of Mexico by taking bribes and even being members of the drug cartels themselves. America's own police forces while not as bad as their Mexican counterparts are regularly involved in acts of police brutality. Suspects, who give their law enforcement captors trouble, are regularly beaten by these officials and are at times, even killed by these excessively violent cops.
Many of these victims have psychological disorders which contribute to their disorderly conduct and are at many times deprived of the medical treatment they required. Acquittal of criminal charges against these law breaking policemen is almost guaranteed as has been recently demonstrated regarding the case against law enforcement personnel of the city of Ferguson in the state of Missouri. The state of Arizona's own law enforcement personnel, has openly engaged in racial profiling against Hispanics, targeting these individuals on ethnicity and appearance alone, and going well beyond their jurisdictional authority by taking up the role Federally Limited to other authorities such as the immigration and customs enforcement and US Border Patrol. Other states have followed in their steps and made a nation built by immigrants, hostile to immigrants and minorities themselves. Human rights abuses such as these, are not the only the examples of what is truly disappointing about the US government.
The electoral system of the United States of America is unfairly built for the benefit of the wealth through the necessity of costly fundraising for political candidates seeking office. The democracy of this nation is nothing more than an illusion and its representative’s act as power brokers for those who can offer them. This government is bought out from the very beginning and does not serve the people but the Aristocracy that supports it.
The capitalistic power of wealth can be best experienced through its momentum, as the rich grow richer and the poor only more so.
This is true of both nations and individuals, as made evident in the overall decline of America's lower and middle classes while the wealthy have thrived during this past decades and justified by the self-centered Randian ideology of objectivism so many of America's elite follow.
These billionaires in power are nothing short of sociopathic megalomaniacs on the path to absolute world domination, and many of them would wish to empower themselves as kings with direct rule of the people, through the complete privatization of government as proposed by the ideology of Elitist libertarianism, it being the purest form of capitalism and the Utopic dream of the American billionaire brothers, Charles and David Koch. If this nightmarish vision were to ever become real, there would be no laws nor regulations protecting the people from the abuses of those with power, Darwinian survival of the fittest would become the law of the land, and those who cannot provide nor fend themselves, would simply be at the mercy of the wealthy, or lack thereof, and their existence would only fade into an obscure fate or nothingness itself.
The value for human life has already been lost through the privatization of America's prison system. A growing number of jails now produce profits for individual owners and shareholders who make money off of these badly managed facilities and are more concerned with maximizing profit than reforming the minds and behavior of its inmates or little more caring for their safety.
Criminal gangs have taken over and made these places very dangerous for their rivals and even far more so for those who lack any affiliation with these groups. The end result is that those who are* incarcerated for breaking the law, end up becoming more dysfunctional, violent and threatening to society upon their liberation as a result of their stay in these Capitalist Death Traps. It is known that at least one tenth of all prisoners in the US, are now in these privately owned prisons which annually produce profits amounting to billions of dollars.
The US government has also experienced the privatization of its military through companies such as Blackwater, which itself has utilize its position as a non-governmental entity to break international laws limiting the use of military personnel as well as participating in the bribing of Iraqi officials, during the occupation of Afghanistan and Iraq since 2001. The CIA itself is no exception to having gone on to more lucrative ventures by forming their own Shadow CIA corporations and offering their expertise and intelligence services directly to transnational corporations and foreign governments well connected to America's elite. I would highly urge you read the book, Confessions of an Economic Hitman by the author John Perkins, to better understand how these two types of organizations functions. One such owner of the Shadow CIA Corporation is Mike Baker, who is an ex-CIA employee that regularly appears on the Fox News Channel as a correspondent and is the host of the television program, America Declassified, as well as the proud of owner of the Shadow CIA Corporation Transience and former owner of its precursor, Prescience.
One can only wonder what these intelligence companies do with their personnel's top secret clearances, contacts in the Pentagon, and all these internationally illegal surveillance data they have gathered, as exposed by the whistleblower Edward Snowden.
This violation of our privacy is but one of many examples in which the US government has proven itself a continual violator of our human rights, human dignity and human potential. What has yet to be disclosed or leaked in a thorough and public manner is the existence of extremely dangerous and subversive technologies. The first I would like to discuss, are the Unidentified Flying Objects otherwise known as UFO's. This phenomenon has been reported by countless individuals the world over for many years now, and its origins are said to be pertaining to outer spaces great beyond and or a curious little military base located in the state of Nevada's desert known as area 51. One common characteristic of what has been reported are the unusual flight patterns and flight capabilities of these flying vessels. It is said they are capable of switching directions in an instant and moving at high velocities, capable of navigating through the skies and spaces itself and therefore must be the technology of extra-terrestrials. Quad and Octocupters technology already exist and is available to anyone who has at least a few hundred dollars in their pockets. What ought to be questioned is not what not where theses unidentified flying objects are coming from, but what they are doing violating our air spaces and satellite orbits and if it is truly all that difficult to weaponize them.
Do the idiots remotely flying these top secret governmental toys really need to practice their maneuvering and skilled in front of the public and if so, what can be said regarding the mantle capacity of their military and intelligence leadership? I would like to excuse these people by proposing the possibility that they have merely figured out a quicker, more direct and sophisticated method of transporting and delivering their drug shipments. Regardless of the answer these weaponized satillital Octocopters clearly have the capability of rapidly destroying other satellites and soon disabling a nation's military and commercial communications systems while easily intercepting the contents of their transmission.
All that is left to discover is what other technologies have also been integrated into the Unidentified Flying Objects, a few examples being the utilization of jet engines for trajectional velocity, solar panel shells for recharging batteries while in orbit, and non-obtrusive camouflage and light absorbing cloak covers and mechanisms to go about their paths undetected. The other technologies I feel the need to speak of are the various uses of radio and electromagnetic frequencies.
There have been numerous reports of individuals having been harassed by governmental agents using seemingly otherworldly means of causing their bodies discomfort and their muscles to move involuntarily, while also forcing them to hear audio and voices they alone were able to listen to.
The former pro wrestler and ex-governor of the state of Minnesota, Jesse Ventura, did a wonderful job at bringing these victims to the light on the Brain Invaders episode of his television program, conspiracy theory. While the GWEN tower explanation this program offered for the government agent's source of other worldly powers failed to provide a clear and scientific understanding, existing and known technologies can fill in the details regarding how these processes were carried out.
Infrasonic generators are the leading candidate for being the source for the bodily discomfort and involuntary muscle movement of the victims, as they have the ability to cause all matter to experience pressure and be moved or shaken at specific frequencies unique to the type of matter being targeted. Infrasound operates at the lowest frequencies of the radio spectrum and is inaudible to the human ear and can only be felt, not heard. Ultrasound on the other hand, operates at the highest of frequencies of the radio spectrum and can be heard with very unique attribute.
One such example of its implementation can be found in a product sold in the market and referred to as the Audio Spot light. It utilizes the special characteristics of ultrasound to direct a beam of audio directly at a target without the audio affecting anything outside of the desired locations. The usage of a device similar to this product may very well be responsible for the voices and audio the victims of the
se government officials were subjected to. Mimicking the partially muted sound of our internal voice could also lead to implantation of thoughts subconsciously accepted as our own, thus leading to confusion, misinform beliefs, and behavioral manipulation. If this secretive governmental weapon is capable of infrasonic and ultrasonic frequency generation, then perhaps X-ray emitting capabilities are also another one of its features. Several leftist Latin American presidents were struck by cancer within a period of less than 5 years including Evo Morales of Bolivia, Christina Fernandez Kirchner of Argentina, Lula Silva and Dilma Rouseff of Brazil and most notably, Hugo Chaves of Venezuela, who stood as the fiercest opponent of America's Imperial Power and was killed by these cancer causing technologies. Infrasonic frequencies themselves could cause cardiac arrest by disrupting the hearts natural rhythm, and could also destroy delicate blood vessels in our brains, leading to permanent brain damage or even death.
The most difficult aspect of utilizing these weapons in such a sinister and subversive manner is the limitations regarding their size and portability. Fortunately for the government with the highest military budget in the world, Nano technology can be easily incorporated into the construction of these devices to most significantly reduce the size of its components, making the said devices far easier to conceal as well as transport. Utilizing them against the targeted individuals would require their being embedded into the surroundings of the target and can be most easily achieved through subterranean means, making them virtually undetectable and unreachable.
If these weapons have been utilized against civilians as well as the
enemies of the US government and the Americans Aristocracy if serves, where does this government truly stand in relation to the defense of human right and the international agreements such as Geneva Convention and why should its opinion, let alone its intervention on the matter, be of any credibility of relevancy? Let us not forget the inhumane treatment the prisoners of the cage prisons in Guantanamo Bay have received, which includes sexual, humiliation, torture and murder by US military personnel, and only begin to imagine what we have yet to become aware of, that has taken place inside of the CIA's secretary prisons throughout the world. The CIA has always acted outside the boundaries of domestic and international laws and the unaccounted for prisoners and victims of this network of spies, will never experience any protection from these laws. What we should ask ourselves is who is truly capable of overseeing the full range of activities the CIA has carried out throughout its existence, and more so, those of their graduated and privatized Shadow CIA Corporate equivalents, and what of holding them accountable? If there is no accountability, then what prevents them from utilizing their secrecy and power throughout the globe to become leaders of its criminal underworld? We have already bared witness to their involvement in the drug trade through their relationship with Manual Noriega of Panama. Could it be possible they played a role in the capture of Mexico's most notorious drug dealer and leader of the Sinaloan Cartel, Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman, by Guatemala's special forces, the Kaibilles, only to have him illegally released from the Mexican Penitentary he was held in, so that he may serve as an informant and financial asset of the CIA and its leadership? A certain plane belonging to a CIA front company and carrying over a ton of pure cocaine belonging to the Sinaloan Cartel, I would like to say so, but is unavailable for comment due to its crushing in a Central American Nation I believe to be Costa Rica, some years back.
Do you truly believe the CIA and the highest ranking of the U.S Military have had no role in reaping the profits off the most profitable heroin trade which has flourished in Afghanistan since it was first invaded? How many costly American Military Bases are found throughout the world, and do the governments of the Nations which host the bases, have the ability to scrutinize what takes place inside, and is also transported into and out of them, that is, if they themselves are not complicit in the multi-billion dollar drug trade? Afghanistan is not alone in harboring these hubs of criminal activity, as the coca cultivating nations of Colombia and Peru are also occupied by America's Military and its bases.
The third and final of these cocaine exporting nations, Bolivia, has fortunately caught on to the pattern of criminality and abuse of power, and has expelled the hostile presence of America's Forces under the brave leadership of its socialist president, Evo Morales. I strongly urge the rest of the world to follow his example in removing the U.S Military's exploitive Geographical foothold from their sovereign lands and defending their people from the violent tyranny of this Imperial Power.
It is surprising how so few people in the world actually have an accurate understanding of how the DPRK truly is. The main reason for this is because the Western media has never presented this country in a favorable fashion. A majority of the media empire including Television Stations, newspapers, radio stations and popular news websites are owned by a handful of very large corporations who are obviously hostile to socialism and anyone supporting such a cause, let alone anyone who would have succeeded in its realization so wonderfully.
This media outlets consistently deceive its audience by painting the DPRK as a completely impoverished country run by a military dictatorship which would stand to prevent its desperate citizens from fleeing a failed state, while the reality is, Korea was liberated from the Japanese imperial occupation by the heroic Great Leader Kim II Sung, and his brave army which fought a 20 year war beginning in 1925 and succeeding in 1945 with the nation's founding. Despite the tragic loss of his family members, including his father and siblings during the course of the war, the Great Leader's smile never faded and his resilient and cheerful demeanor and great legacy continued inspiring the lives of millions of those he led to freedom. This very same enthusiasm has been reciprocated by Korean peoples for the leadership of the Dear Leader Kim Jong II and the Kind Leader Kim Jong Un. The citizens of the DPRK have built a very strong and capable domestically owned and operated industry which produces everything from auto mobile, trains and the rails they ride on, impressive feats of architecture and construction, wood, steel, and stone product, textile, furniture, clothing and delicious soda alongside the best herb made toothpaste I have ever had the privilege of using, just to name a few examples.
This industry suffers not from a lack of development but from all the economic sanctions the nations of the world as directed by the US, have taken against it, severely starving this county's wealth creation and economic potentials. If anyone would dare defy this economical assault by allowing their nation to begin trading with the DPRK, the US and its followers would respond by having all economical aid ceased against it indefinitely and raised their own economic sanctions.
This sort of strategy is nothing short of engaging in war with the forces of socialism themselves, and doing so is suppressing the power of human possibilities in favor of protecting elitist privilege for the few.
Imagine a world where every man was considered equal, and only further defined by his merit. This is the vision of the Socialist Brotherhood and the Communist form of governance takes it to the greatest of height. There is no other nation on Earth that has built up and dedicated itself to the Socialist ideal as much as the DPRK has, and for that I must congratulate and thank them for all they have accomplished and made possible. I would like to note the leadership of this nation has done an outstanding job at preserving the cultural integrity of its society and building strong and united families and communities, where its people are fiercely protected from negative influences such as substance abuse and criminality. The peoples of the DPRK have successfully achieved over a 99% Literacy rate for its population, and have built an excellent and thriving film industry I myself have been able to experience on their publically broadcasted state television station.
The military and civilian population and ways of life have also been harmoniously integrated with one another, and its army has been and still stand as one of the finest the world has ever known. Only this country has defended its lands and people from the imperial invasion and hostile influence of the American Empire as victoriously as the DPRK. Under the leadership of the Great Leaders, the DPRK has successfully constructed a truly Socialist State which serves the people and acts as an inspiration for all progressive minded individuals seeking a brighter future for mankind.
While capitalism has no soul and at its most basic form, acts as a force of exploitation, Socialism itself was built upon the foundation of serving the greater good and empowering the workers. This most noble ideology and movement fight against the segregation of social classes and the unbalanced distribution of wealth and influence. Socialism has taken up many forms, including the milder, social democracy, which taxes corporations and the wealthy in a far more fair manner, as well as nationalizes strategic natural resources and industries so that their wealth creation may be invested in infrastructure and social programs that assist those in need. Communism takes it to the highest form by eliminating social classes through complete nationalization of all resources and industries which in turn, most evenly distributes the wealth produced by a nation so that the majority of its people may become empowered as a result.
Only this compassionate form of governance can save our nations and its people from the great social and economic decline capitalism would lead us towards. May the people of the world join together under this common cause and keep this hope alive by embracing and upholding the socialist path.
Then, he answered questions put by reporters.
A reporter of KCNA asked why he chose the DPRK as he claimed came to the country to expose what he knew about the human rights situation in the U.S., and whether he would go back to the U.S. or not.
He answered: "I have chosen the Democratic People's Republic of Korea. It is due to it is not only socialist state in place and it is due to its very powerful military. It continues to fight America's power throughout its history.
After, I am going to, witnessing directly, going to seek a political asylum in the country Venezuela." A reporter of Minju Joson asked why human rights are not ensured in the U.S. and if he had been affected by human rights abuses in the U.S.
The answer was: "No. I haven't been personally affected by the human rights abuses in the United States. But I know many people who have been affected, such people who are regarded as prisoners. These prisons are very dangerous in the United States. In a very recent situation, many people have to endure harasses and violence as criminal does. And this is all due to America's, you know, basically, not invested enough in infrastructure in prisons as it is part of privatization. And there is actually violence. I consider the U.S. prisons are high in this regard. And the U.S. basically has been very critical in this matter. I also have known people who have been affected by the racist immigration policies in Arizona who have been harassed openly by the policy, the racist policy that the police force in Arizona State has done. And they have that particular role that has been federally limited to other authorities, such as immigration, customs enforcement as well as U.S. Border Patrol."
A reporter of the Central Broadcasting Committee of Korea asked what he thinks about the U.S. smear campaign against the DPRK and other countries over "human rights" situation.
He answered:
"I do believe that the arguments or accusations the U.S. has been making against the DPRK are completely unfounded. During my stay here I witnessed how happily the nation is. There have been many accusations against the DPRK. People here are very happy. People are taken as a priority. Even they were treating me well."
Xinhua correspondent to the DPRK asked what he thinks about the December 9th report by the U.S. Senate on the harsh tortures practiced by the CIA against terrorist suspects that has been evoking big repercussions around the world.
Arturo answered: "Basically, I believe this is what happens in the U.S. It has been done usually. CIA is actually holding this game. This is basically to pull off all discussions regarding this matter. I do believe the situation regarding CIA prisons is not good. It has become popular in all the countries. It has become an issue, even other countries. Even allies of the U.S. have regarded this question. I do believe nothing good will comes of it."
ITAR TASS correspondent in Pyongyang asked how he had been treated in the DPRK and if he had been feeling anything inconvenient during his stay here.
The answer was: "Absolutely not. I have been treated most humanitarianly and generously as possible. Actually I have been staying at a very nice hotel while I was investigated.
They just have been investigating me concerning my illegal entry to the nation, and for all the basically obvious information. It has been very awesome experience. Having been able to see Pyongyang, I had certain experience to see the nation with my own eyes. And this basically has truly opened my heart to see how secret the U.S. media has been against socialist nations such as the DPRK. I do believe that you have to look at the great nation. Korea is socialist nation that has built such a great industry, and equal happiness and very unified leadership of the great leader. I just had overall, amazing and real experience."
A reporter of Choson Sinbo of the General Association of Korean Residents in Japan asked what he had witnessed and felt during his stay in the DPRK.
He replied: "I was just left most impressed by the people having accomplished just the overall state of happiness of living as well as the accomplished state of industry. Industry is so large enough. It is absolutely amazing, cars, trains, automobiles; all things are produced under economic sanctions through the leadership of the U.S. I think if economic sanctions are lifted, you would see how far the economy would grow. I think this system is engaged due to all the people having been swayed, politicians swayed by the U.S. government. So they do attack the people in the socialist country. I have been very much impressed. It's been a really amazing trip, very important."
Concluding his speech, Arturo Martinez said: "I would like to thank the members of the audience for attending this conference as well as those other people. I possible would like to thank the government of the DPRK. They were all too generous and showed humanitarian treatment and I conclude I hope people would open their eyes and see all the life and the media organizations to see the socialist system through the inspiration. I also hope governments and people of the world would become aware of toxic weapons that are of so dangerous to leaders, nations and people and take measures so that they are not used against them such as what has occurred in nations in Latin America."

KIM JONG UN INSPECTS KPA NAVY UNIT
Pyongyang, December 13 (KCNA) -- Supreme Commander of the Korean People's Army Kim Jong Un, first secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea and first chairman of the DPRK National Defence Commission, inspected KPA navy Unit 189 honored with the title of O Jung Hup-led 7th Regiment.
He went round the monument to the field guidance of leader Kim Jong Il and the room for education in the revolutionary history.
Seeing with keen interest the historic data in the education room, Kim Jong Un recalled the undying feats the great Generalissimos Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il performed in organizing and developing the unit.
He learned in detail about the ongoing combat and political training for the New Year, watching soldiers engaging themselves in such drills as torpedo charge at an underwater combined training room.
Underlining the need to do away with formalism in indoor training and conduct it in an efficient way under the simulated conditions of real battles, he instructed that advanced training methods should be employed and a work to invent and introduce training equipment in a view of war should be done in a creative and active manner.
If the captains are to skillfully command any operations at sea even under complicated sea route and unfavorable weather conditions and various situations, they should acquire the abilities to organize and command naval battles and the skills to operate their warships under simulated conditions of real war, he said.
He stressed the need to have a thorough knowledge of sea bottom of the operational theatre and put big efforts into working out reasonable combat plans in advance to cope with possible situations.
Guiding the maneuvers of subs, he set forth the tasks and ways for rounding off sub unit's war preparations.
He called for making 2015, the 70th anniversary of the WPK, a year of bringing about a fresh turn in the strengthening of the navy, urging the servicepersons of the unit to effect a collective innovation in the training for the New Year, well aware of the intention of the WPK Central Committee.
The Supreme Commander went round a library, soldiers' hall and other places of the unit to acquaint himself with its politico-ideological education.
It is needed to supply the must books to libraries on a regular basis and encourage reading among servicepersons so that they can have versatile knowledge and high cultural attainments, he said, adding: A shortcut to turning the whole army strong in the politico-ideological and moral aspects is to strictly establish a habit of studying hard as the anti-Japanese guerrillas did.
Praising the unit for having spruced up the soldiers' hall, he instructed it to concentrate efforts on intensifying the five-point education set forth by the Party--education in the traits of the peerlessly great persons of Mt. Paektu, Kim Jong Il's patriotism, faith, working-class viewpoint and morality.
He also showed warm care for the seamen's living conditions, touring barracks, education room and mess hall of the seamen of submarine No. 720 under the unit.
Seeing various raw foods on the kitchen counter, he asked the cooks to serve well the submarine seamen, valued by the party, with sincerity and posed for a picture with them.
He said that officers should work hard to provide those seamen with good material and cultural living conditions, mindful of the teachings of Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il that the supply services constitute a political work.
He gave the servicepersons of the unit a pair of binoculars and an automatic rifle as gifts and had a photo session with them, expressing belief that they would intensify their training the way the anti-Japanese guerrillas did in Mt. Paektu and bring about a fresh improvement in managing the unit.
Accompanying him were Choe Ryong Hae, Hwang Pyong So, Ri Yong Gil, O Il Jong and Han Kwang Sang


CHARACTERISTICS OF KIM JONG UN’S POLITICS

What are the characteristics of the politics pursued by Kim Jong Un who leads socialist Korea along the road of victory, remaining unflinching amid the challenges from allied imperialist forces led by the US and upheavals of history?
First, his is a politics refined through his philosophical thoughts. This is clearly illustrated by his first open address which drew the attention of the world in April 2012.
In the address he said:
The geopolitical position of our country is the same as ever, but the weak country of yesterday which was trodden underfoot as a theatre where the big powers fought to expand the sphere of their influence, has now been turned into a proud political and military power and our people are demonstrating their dignity as an independent people whom no one dares to provoke.
“This miraculous transformation in the destiny of our nation is no fortuitous event which resulted from the passage of time but an inevitable historical outcome brought about by the great President Kim Il Sung and General Kim Jong Il, who pioneered and led the Songun revolution.”
It can be said that this statement is based on his profound political analysis of Korea’s history and the reality of the international community that if a country is weak in its military power, it cannot defend its independence, right to existence, and will end up falling victim to the imperialists as well as on his conclusive political judgement that as long as there remains imperialism, the only way to safeguard the sovereignty and dignity of the country and nation is to direct great efforts to consolidating military power and realizing Songun politics.
Then he declared:
“The permanent strategy of our revolution and its final victory lie in marching straight along the road of independence, the road of Songun and the road of socialism, as indicated by President Kim Il Sung and General Kim Jong Il.”
His declaration shows the road socialist Korea should take. It is his political creed that as it has won one victory after another for several decades along the road of independence, Songun and socialism in the face of all trials and difficulties, his country will be ever victorious when it follows the road invariably.
“Single-hearted unity and invincible military might plus the industrial revolution in the new century together make a thriving socialist country.”
This proposition of his has also a profound meaning. As is recognized by the whole world, Korea is a politico-ideological power whose people and service personnel are united as one in their leader’s ideology and will and a military power with a strong military might fostered by Songun. It is his political ideal to make Korea a thriving socialist country by giving importance to science and technology and waging a forceful campaign to break through the cutting edge and, on this basis, capturing the target of building an economic giant.
Second, his politics is characterized by firm determination and staunch faith.
Developments before and after the country’s launch of Kwangmyongsong 3-2, an artificial earth satellite, in December 2012 are a clear testimony to this. The situation in and around the Korean peninsula was extremely serious due to the arbitrariness of the US and its vassal forces that made reckless attempt to check the launch, describing it as a missile launch. Nothing daunted, however, Kim Jong Un guided the launch at the launching site, demonstrating once again Korea’s will that it does what it is determined to do.
Ubiquitous in Korea, the slogan “Korean does what it is determined to do!” reflects the staunch faith of the country’s leader and unshakeable will of its people and service personnel to realize his determination without fail.
Firm is his resolve to build at the earliest date a civilized and thriving socialist country where all the dreams and ideal of the people are materialized, although the country’s economic situation is still difficult.
Under his guidance the country has recently built many monumental structures upholding the slogans of “Top and absolute priority to the people’s interests and convenience!” and “Everything for the people and everything by relying on them!” advanced by him. Typical examples are the Rungna People’s Recreation Ground, People’s Open-air Ice Rink, Breast Tumor Institute of the Pyongyang Maternity Hospital, Okryu Children’s Hospital, Ryugyong Dental Hospital, Changjon Street, Unha Scientists Street, Wisong Scientists Street, Munsu Water Park, Mirim Riding Club and Masikryong Ski Resort.
Kim Jong Un made painstaking efforts for their construction. According to materials made public, in 2012 alone he provided on-site guidance to their construction on about 140 occasions and examined 113 blueprints for the Munsu Water Park.
Third, his politics is characterized by its unpredictability and adroitness.
He throws the US into defensive in the ceaseless US-DPRK showdown by dint of his unfathomable and adroit tactics.
When the US waged a large-scale war exercise in south Korea, bringing dark clouds of nuclear war over the Korean peninsula, he unexpectedly visited the KPA post at Panmunjom on the Military Demarcation Line, to utter shock of the enemy. And he inspected KPA units defending islands on the frontier by a small wooden vessel. His limitless pluck and courage struck terror into the enemy’s hearts. His hard-line will to “counter provocation with an immediate counteroffensive, and a war of aggression with a war of justice for the country’s reunification” completely shattered the enemy’s will to ignite a war. It was made public that Korea made a plan to attack the US military bases in Guam, Hawaii and the US proper to cope with the reckless nuclear threats of the arrogant US.
The world is struck with admiration at the fact that Kim Jong Un, though young, holds the initiative in the US-DPRK showdown, knocking out of wits the veterans of the US which boasts of its long-standing experience in aggressive war.
An Internet homepage writes: The world has become aware of north Korean leader who solidifies the country’s political system and pushes ahead with military buildup and economic construction, while handling the US at his discretion; now it is possible to foresee the future of Kim Jong Un’s era.


IMMORTAL EXPLOITS IN SONGUN-BASED REVOLUTIONARY LEADERSHIP

On August 25, 1960 Kim Jong Il, eternal leader of socialist Korea, started his Songun-based revolutionary leadership. Since then, his half-a-century-long leadership ushered in a new era of prosperity unprecedented in the Korean history spanning some 5 000 years.
Kim Jong Il’s Songun leadership built up the country as a military power.
It was a century ago that Korea was reduced to the Japanese imperialist colony (1905-1945) for its weak military strength. It must be this grim lesson of history that impelled him to launch political activities with guidance over the Korean People’s Army.
Kim Jong Il paid primary attention to the thoroughgoing politico-ideological preparedness of the service personnel in his Songun-based leadership.
The principal factor in the victory in a war is not the latest military hardware but the soldier masses that handle them--this was his steadfast viewpoint.
He ensured that the political organs in the army enhanced their role to intensify ideological education of the service personnel and set forth militant slogans for them.
He saw to it that they emulated the examples of the anti-Japanese revolutionary fighters who fought for national liberation, battle heroes of the Fatherland Liberation War (1950-1953) and those who sacrificed themselves for the country and people. Whenever he inspected the army units he showed deep concern to newspapers, magazines and books the soldiers read.
Kim Jong Il put emphasis on strengthening military capabilities of the People’s Army.
He ensured that all the service personnel trained hard to be physically strong, well-versed in their weapons and possess excellent marksmanship.
He taught them original strategies and tactics while inspecting their military drills. He exerted great efforts into developing self-reliant defence industry capable of manufacturing any state-of-the-art military equipment as it wished.
From the mid-1990s Kim Jong Il held higher the banner of Songun and redoubled his effort to strengthening military capabilities. The US-led imperialist allied forces went to the extreme of anti-DPRK manoeuvres, taking advantage of the collapse of socialist countries.
To cope with them, he made energetic inspection tours of the army units for military buildup. He inspected over 5 200 units of the ministry of armed forces from the day of the start of his Songun-based revolutionary leadership until the last days of his life, and among them the units he visited from 1995 to December 2011 numbered 2 492.
Under his wise leadership the Korean People’s Army has developed into an invincible army fully prepared for both defence and attack and also possessed of a powerful nuclear deterrent.
Kim Jong Il turned Korea into a political and ideological power of the single-hearted unity by dint of his Songun-based revolutionary leadership.
He put forward the People’s Army as a pillar, main force, of the socialist cause.
He ensured that the entire people modeled after the revolutionary soldier spirit displayed by the service personnel of the People’s Army. Accordingly the identity of the army and the people in ideology, viewpoint and fighting spirit reached a higher level and so much consolidated was the traditional single-minded unity of the Korean community.
Kim Jong Il made all of the people further cherish their confidence in socialism through consistent enforcement of such socialist policies as free education and medical treatment, though the country was undergoing severe economic difficulties due to the economic blockade of the imperialist allied forces in the closing years of last century. Living up to the motto “The people are my God” throughout his life, he worked heart and soul for improving the people’s standard of living. Human history has not yet recorded a people’s leader but him, who passed away on the road of field guidance for the well-being of his people. His Songun-based revolutionary leadership made it possible for the army and people in Korea to achieve their single-hearted unity around the Party.
Kim Jong Il ushered in a new era of prosperity of building a thriving nation by his Songun-based revolutionary leadership.
In August 1998 Korea launched its first earth satellite Kwangmyongsong 1 which was made entirely by their own efforts and technology. It was a clear signal that Korea set about building a prosperous and powerful nation.
It was his ideal to establish a thriving socialist country with strong national power in which, everything prospers and its people live happily with nothing to envy in the world. For its materialization he set forth a line of economic construction in the Songun era that priority is given to the development of defence industry while simultaneously developing light industry and agriculture.
The line brought about eye-opening economic development in Korea. An iron-making system without using coking coal and scrap iron was established and the magnetite industry made Juche-based. The machine-building industry broke through the cutting edge and mass-produced CNC machine tools. The modernized fibre and fertilizer industries fed with domestic fuel and raw materials are greatly paying off. Radical progress is also made in light industry and agriculture. Gene engineering, bioengineering, information technology, nano technology and other cutting-edge technologies are making brisk headway. Farms of sturgeon, salmon, eel and errapin mushroomed in all parts of the country.
All other sectors including education, public health and physical culture and sports underwent marked developments, while the cities and villages being turned into socialist fairylands for the people to live in splendor.
Kim Jong Il’s Songun-based revolutionary leadership is now being carried forward by supreme leader Kim Jong Un.


KIM JONG UN INSPECTS PYONGYANG CHILDREN'S FOODSTUFF FACTORY
Pyongyang, December 16 (KCNA) -- Kim Jong Un, first secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea (WPK), first chairman of the National Defence Commission of the DPRK and supreme commander of the Korean People's Army (KPA), gave field guidance to the Pyongyang Children's Foodstuff Factory.
Going round the mosaic depicting President Kim Il Sung and the monument to field guidance provided by leader Kim Jong Il in the compound of the factory, he recollected with deep emotion the undying feats Kim Jong Il performed by visiting it on July 8, 2001 with loving care.
He said in an excited tone that the world knew no such great fathers as Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il who regarded it as the most important affair of the party and state to love children, calling them kings of the country and devoting everything to them all their lives.
He proposed erecting new mosaic depicting the President and Kim Jong Il with profound reverence so as to convey down to posterity their love for the children and future.
He went round the room dedicated to the history of the factory.
He recalled that the factory built under the care of the President turned into a comprehensive children's foodstuff production center for regularly producing and supplying foodstuff for babies in breast feeding and weaning periods such as powdered milk for babies, nutritious rice powder, varieties of powdered vegetables, powdered tangle and powdered fish, and soy-based milk and soy-based kefir good for the growth and development of children and pupils under the wise guidance of Kim Jong Il.
He told the officials and employees of the factory to intensify the education through the immortal exploits performed by Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il for its development so that they may keep production going at a high rate and their love for the children may always reach them.
He went round the product show room, soy-based milk shop, nutritious rice powder shop, the shop for powdered milk for babies and other places of the factory to learn about in detail the production and management of the factory.
He said the production should not be stopped at the factory even a moment because to put the production on a normal footing at the factory was not a simple economic and business matter but a matter concerning the sense of moral obligation towards Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il.
Noting that the hostile forces are working hard to prevent the laughter of children from being heard, he underscored the need to boost the production of children's foodstuff so as to show them how the DPRK protects the children's happy life and defends socialism.
He gave an instruction to raise the quality of foodstuff to the highest level and develop new varieties of foodstuff for the growth of the children by comparing the foodstuff of the factory with the world famous infant's food and making an analysis of them with an ambition for holding world supremacy in foodstuff production.
He underlined the need to put all production processes on an automated, unmanned, germ-free and dust-free basis by learning from the foodstuff factories of the KPA which turned into model and standard of foodstuff factory in the country. He called for perfectly updating the factory by the 70th founding anniversary of the WPK.
He had a photo session with the officials and employees of the factory.
Accompanying him were Choe Ryong Hae, secretary of the WPK Central Committee, KPA Vice Marshal Hwang Pyong So, director of the General Political Bureau of the KPA, An Jong Su and Han Kwang Sang, department directors of the C.C., the WPK, Ri Jae Il, first vice-department director of the C.C., the WPK, and Jo Yong Won, vice-department director of the C.C., the WPK.

US WILL FACE DPRK'S TOUGHEST COUNTERACTION: FM SPOKESMAN
Pyongyang, December 15 (KCNA) -- The spokesman for the Foreign Ministry of the DPRK Monday gave the following answer to the question put by KCNA as regards the U.S. madcap "human rights" racket against the DPRK:
The U.S. has recently become all the more pronounced in its "human rights" offensive against the DPRK.
In the last one week alone, the U.S. secretary of State, the assistant secretary of State for East Asian and Pacific Affairs, the assistant secretary of State for Democracy, Human Rights and Labour, the "special envoy for human rights issue of North Korea" and the U.S. special representative for North Korea policy vied with each other to unhesitatingly let loose a string of invectives against the DPRK, taking issue with it over its "human rights issue".
The U.S. Department of State announced a detailed standard to provide funds to the anti-DPRK "human rights" organizations and the U.S. Congress adopted a "bill" calling on the administrator of the U.S. State Intelligence Agency and the U.S. secretary of State to spy on the internal affairs of the DPRK and gather information critical of it, becoming all the more undisguised in their moves to escalate confrontation with the latter over "human rights".
Such moves go to prove that the U.S. is regarding the "human rights" racket against the DPRK as a lever for bringing down its ideology and social system, politicizing it and stepping up it in a premeditated manner.
These actions mean that the U.S. reneged on the September 19 joint statement of the six-party talks which calls for respect for sovereignty and peaceful coexistence between the DPRK and the U.S.
Now that the U.S. is leaving no means untried to bring down the social system of the DPRK, the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula will completely lose its meaning.
The DPRK agreed on denuclearizing the Korean Peninsula not to allow the U.S. to swallow it up but to have the nuclear threat of the U.S. to the DPRK defused and peace and security on the peninsula ensured.
Now that the confrontation between the DPRK and the U.S. over human rights is high on the agenda, any dialogue on the nuclear issue is meaningless.
The U.S. is talking this or that about the release of Americans who had been detained in the DPRK. But the release was nothing but a cleaning work done by it to start confrontation with the U.S. over human rights, not to want dialogue with it.
In fact, the DPRK has more things to talk over human rights than the U.S.
It is the U.S. that is finding itself in a tight corner due to the disclosure of brutal tortures practiced by the CIA and the scandals of racial discrimination perpetrated by white policemen. It is again the U.S. and its lackeys who suffered shame while floating wild rumors about youngsters of the DPRK who returned home after being abducted by flesh traffickers.
This time U.S. Secretary of State Kerry made such disgusting gesture as openly praising a swindler, defector from the north, whom he has used for the anti-DPRK "human rights" racket. This clearly proved that he is going reckless, keen on moves hostile to the DPRK.
Former U.S. Secretary of State Powell was taken in by lies told by the CIA engrossed in gathering intelligence and inventing pretexts through tortures. But today Kerry is behaving like a fool, believing in the lies told by a "defector from the north."
The DPRK has already sent a video clip disclosing the true colors of the above-said swindler to Kerry through a relevant channel.
Washington's policy aimed to topple the social system of the DPRK over its "human rights issue" is no more than a daydream.
The U.S. will have to experience the toughest counteraction of the DPRK against its hostile policy towards the DPRK and be held wholly accountable for the derailing of the denuclearization on the Korean Peninsula.

KFPD REJECTS ANTI-DPRK FORCES' ACCUSATIONS
Pyongyang, December 17 (KCNA) -- The hostile forces against the DPRK held a "hearing on the human rights situation in north Korea" at the British parliament on Dec. 10, World Day of Human Rights. They prodded such human scum as "defectors from the north" into asserting that a "systematic elimination of the disabled was taking place in north Korea" and spread sheer sophism that the DPRK is set to send its team to Paralympic Games, etc. to conceal its "policy of eliminating the people with disabilities".
A spokesman for the Central Committee of the Korean Federation for the Protection of the Disabled (KFPD) made public a statement on Tuesday in this regard.
This is an intolerable abuse of the DPRK and an unbearable insult and mockery of the disabled people, the statement noted, and went on:
The DPRK government has consistently respected the human dignity of the disabled and provided them with all conditions and circumstances so that they may enjoy equal social and political rights with the ordinary people and take active part in the state and social activities.
The Central Committee of the Democratic Blind Alliance of Korea was formed in February, Juche 37 (1948) and has since conducted brisk activities. Since its founding the DPRK has taken a series of legal and institutional steps for preferential state treatment and protection of the disabled and spared no investment in implementing them.
The Central Committee of the KFPD was founded in 1998 with an objective of sincerely helping the state shape and implement the policies of protecting the disabled and controlling and guiding the work for protecting the disabled in an integral manner.
Sanatoriums are found everywhere for the disabled so that they are given free functional rehabilitation service. The modern Munsu Functional Rehabilitation Clinic appeared in Pyongyang City in 2013 to render comprehensive functional rehabilitation service to the disabled.
The DPRK Law on the Protection of the Disabled adopted on June 18, 2003 and amended and supplemented in November, 2013 provides a legal guarantee for their rights.
It has been confirmed by foreign experts and media persons of AP, APTN and other Western media through their visits and news coverage activities that the rights, dignity and interests of the disabled are satisfactorily ensured both on a legal basis and in their life thanks to the correct policy of the DPRK government.
The hostile forces' racket over "issue of the disabled" is nothing but a poor attempt to stir up the atmosphere of international pressure on the DPRK over its "human rights" even by picking up a new "human rights issue".
The reckless trumpeting made by "defectors from the north" to get a petty amount of dollars is not worth even a passing note. But it is more ridiculous for politicians of Britain and other Western countries to chime in with their propaganda, utterly ignorant of the reality.
Those hostile forces had better stop at once their mean and poor smear campaign for meeting their sinister political purposes.

He provided undying ideological and theoretical guidelines promising the everlasting victory for the era of independence and Songun and enriched the treasure house of the history of human thought.
He laid powerful political, military and economic foundations for the rosy future of Songun Korea for all eternity.
It was his greatest exploit on behalf of the country and its people, times and history that he successfully settled the issue of succession to the leadership, the basic issue in accomplishing the revolutionary cause of Juche.
He provided the eternal foundation for the ever-lasting prosperity of the glorious era of Kim Jong Un and sowed seeds for the prosperity of the generations to come. These immortal exploits will shine forever with the triumphant advance of the great Paektusan nation.
Kim Yong Nam called on all the people to dynamically advance towards the final victory of the revolutionary cause of Juche under the wise leadership of Kim Jong Un, holding aloft the unfurled flag bearing the immortal beaming images of Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il.

FM URGES EUROPEAN COUNTRIES NOT TO PEDDLE "HUMAN RIGHTS ISSUE"
Pyongyang, December 17 (KCNA) -- The spokesman for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the DPRK answered a question raised by KCNA on Wednesday in connection with the disclosure of European countries' conspiracy with the U.S. in its human rights abuses.
At a time when cruel tortures committed by the CIA against inmates in its secret prisons were disclosed recently to come under fire by the international community, the information that European countries had conspired with the U.S. in them was brought to light. This is sparking great uproar.
According to it, 21 European countries including Britain actively cooperated with the U.S. in its human rights abuses as evidenced by the facts that they allowed the CIA to set up secret prisons and interrogation bases and Okayed inmates' passage through their territories and their stay there.
EU and European countries have so far often found fault with other countries over their alleged human rights violations, behaving as if they were a "model" in protecting the human rights. And they have zealously joined the U.S. in its "human rights" campaign against the DPRK.
But, this time, it was disclosed that most of EU member states became servants in the U.S. brutal human rights abuses. This brought to daylight the fact that the signboard of "human rights protection", which was professed as one of its major pillars of EU policies, was only ostentation and proved to be a smokescreen to conceal a political hypocrisy peculiar to Europe.
The European countries are now faced with a strong condemnation and pressure at home and abroad. There come strange voices from several European countries that they only gave a green light to CIA to operate secret prisons but did not grant a right to torture prisoners. There also comes a spate of discontent among them. Those countries grumble that they demanded the deletion of their cooperation in U.S. acts of torture but it was opened to public as it was.
In the final analysis, Europe has been reduced to a servant fated to sit in the dock for acting under the baton of the U.S. It scuttled the human rights dialogue with the DPRK, which had been smoothly under way a decade ago, under the wire-pulling of the U.S. over the DPRK's nuclear issue.
Recently alone, EU recognized the DPRK's will to seek an international cooperation in the field of human rights. But, pressurized by the U.S., EU behaved so recklessly as taking the lead in adopting the "human rights resolution" against DPRK, which is based on lies told by a few human dregs at the UN General Assembly.
European countries should be well aware of their own situations where they have lost even elementary qualifications to peddle the "human rights issue" of somebody. They would be well advised to bear in mind that they would only harm their own interests and lose their faces if they follow others without independent viewpoints.
If European countries are truly concerned for the protection of human rights, they should learn how to behave themselves and stop peddling "human rights issue" in the DPRK peppered with fabrications, though belatedly, and opt for calling the extra-large scale human rights violations by the U.S. into question at the UN and on other international fora.
By doing so, Europe can only redress its past and become a genuine champion of human rights as claimed by it.
