THE WORLD SEES THE US IN THIS WAY
The United States styles itself as an “apostle of peace,” “human rights judge” and “international police.”
But the US as the world community sees is quite different.
“Most Dangerous Country”
A reporter from New York Times exposed in one of his books that the United States maneuvered during the previous 100 years a lot of plots against governments in many countries of the world, including Hawaii, Nicaragua, Panama, Grenada, Afghanistan and Iraq.
It is well known that the United States, since its founding, has committed wars of aggression and armed interventions without letup, wrecking peace of the world and bringing untold misfortunes on humankind.
In the last few years alone it waged wars of aggression against such countries in the Middle East and North Africa as Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria and Libya, and interfered in their domestic affairs, fomenting serious social disorder and ruining economy in these countries.
On the Korean peninsula in the East it is conducting recklessly nuclear war manoeuvres against the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, entailing a risk of thermonuclear war unprecedented in human history.
For this reason the international community dislikes the US, which always makes mankind restless and even pays no heed to the existence of the planet.
According to the data of public-opinion survey released in March 2013 by the American Gallup office, the universal disapproval rate of the United States went up by 4% over 2009. The proportions of Pakistanis and Palestinians who expressed negative views about the US rose to 79% and 77% respectively.
The US is also losing favour with its allies.
It has revealed the “pivot-to-Asia-Pacific” strategy and insisted on European countries siding with it and sharing expenses in defence. However, the European countries took frigid, hesitant, indifferent and discontented attitudes toward the US proposal.
The recent Snowden incident is now having a snowball effect on the allied countries’ distrust of the US, which conducted acts of wiretapping across the world, and, worse still, of the statesmen of its allies, including the German Chancellor.
Even the US citizens are opposed to the policy of imperialism and dominationism pursued by their own country. In December 2013 the Pew Research Center published the survey result that 80% of the Americans showed negative views about the excessive interference of the US into international affairs.
According to the Gallup survey of 70 000 people in 65 countries, many of them replied that the United States is the “most dangerous country.”
“Most Detestable Country”
Recently an American film that defiles Muhammad, the Prophet of the Islamic religion, as a “fraud” and Islam as the “religion of malice” was screened in the United States, and it offended the Islamic people. A church in Florida, the US, held a mock court against the Quran as its defendant, declared it guilty and burnt it.
The Human Rights Watch exposed that the GIs in Iraq held tens of thousands of people in detention and deprived them of the elementary rights. They forced the Iraqi detainees to undress and build human pyramids and set the dog on them. American female investigators stripped the Iraqi male prisoners naked and sexually assaulted them, while male investigators sexually abusing and raping women prisoners, and, worse, committing outrages on them to have sexual intercourse with animals.
Not only the Islamic people but many people across the world are shaking their heads in denial of the US. Anti-American sentiments are growing stronger in many parts of the world, and the United States is becoming the major target of attack. Many American soldiers and citizens in Iraq and Afghanistan are being attacked by resistant forces. In Libya the US ambassador and several other Americans were killed.
An article carried in Newsweek pointed out that the US has so far brought to other countries and regions of the world only destruction, disorder, misfortunes and disasters, instead of peace and stability, and that is why the whole world dislikes the US.
KIM JONG UN GIVES FIELD GUIDANCE TO NOVEMBER 2 FACTORY OF KPA
Pyongyang, August 24 (KCNA) -- Supreme Commander of the Korean People's Army (KPA) Kim Jong Un, first secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea (WPK) and first chairman of the National Defence Commission of the DPRK, gave field guidance to the November 2 Factory of the KPA.
He went round the newly built room dedicated to the history of the factory.
He said that the room was arranged well, adding the factory has a long history.
Going round the zeppole, bread and confectionery workshops and other places of the factory, he learned in detail about the technical updating of production processes and production there.
He expressed great satisfaction over the fact that the officials and employees of the factory put all production processes on an automatic and unmanned basis ranging from preparation of foodstuff to production and packing of products to carry out the tasks assigned by the party.
The greatest achievement made by the factory is that it completed by its own efforts and with indigenous technology the updating of technical processes even those countries which claim developed in food industry dare not to do.
He highly appreciated the feats the technicians of the factory and teachers and researchers of Pyongyang University of Mechanical Engineering have performed by most accurately implementing the line of the party on updating the production processes in such a manner as to fully ensure the hygienic safety of foodstuff, cut down manpower and drastically reduce production cost.
"The scientific and technological achievements made by the factory prove that it is possible to bring about world-startling miracle and innovations when high technical goals are set as required by the era of the knowledge-based economy and its employees are powerfully encouraged to hit them", he said, instructing other foodstuff factories to earnestly learn from the experience gained by it.
He emphasized the need for the factory to work hard to attain a higher goal of putting the production environment on a sterilized and dust-free basis, not resting content with the successes already achieved.
He repeatedly expressed his satisfaction, saying that he was pleased to look round the factory and that it was the one to be proud of, it was impeccable in all aspects, and it was the factory he liked to visit.
He earnestly instructed the officials of the factory to increase the production of varieties of tasty and nutritious foodstuff for soldiers in the future too.
He was accompanied by KPA Vice Marshal Hwang Pyong So, director of the KPA General Political Bureau, KPA Col. General So Hong Chan, first vice-minister of the People's Armed Forces, and Han Kwang Sang, department director of the C.C., the WPK.
SCIENTISTS STREETS IN PYONGYANG
Scientists’ streets have recently mushroomed in Pyongyang, the capital of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea.
Unha Scientists Street
Built in a spacious area in a suburb of Pyongyang, Unha Scientists Street consists of 21 multi-storeyed apartment buildings of over 1 000 flats, schools, hospital, nurseries, kindergartens and other public establishments, 16 children’s and other small parks and various public welfare service facilities.
A green environment presented by good species of trees, beautiful flowers and green turf surrounding wide roads and apartment buildings makes every one feel the freshness of natural ecology.
Flats, boasting of modern architectural beauty, are provided with all conditions for scientific study. Living rooms are furnished with up-to-date furniture and other household articles. Kitchens, toilets and other parts of the interior are so designed as to provide scientific study.
These luxurious flats have been provided to ordinary scientists and technicians gratis.
Supreme leader Kim Jong Un of the DPRK proposed building the street and guided the construction project. Saying that there is nothing to spare for scientists and technicians who are devoting themselves to building up the national power, promoting economic construction and improving the people’s standard of living, he went over its project plan and designing and went to the construction site several times to take every possible measure for the construction.
The construct project was implemented just seven months after its groundbreaking.
He visited the residential district for scientists in September 2013 built on the occasion of the 65th founding anniversary of the DPRK and named it Unha Scientists Street.
WISONG SCIENTISTS STREET
Kim Jong Un on a visit to the State Academy of Sciences in January 2014 said that a lavish investment should be made to achieve successes in scientific research, and unfolded his plan to have a modern street built for scientists in the Unjong scientific district as Unha Scientists Street was built the previous year. In the sense that the scientists and technicians of the country that had manufactured and launched satellites would live there, the street should be named Wisong (satellite) Scientists Street, he added.
Accordingly, a gigantic project involving construction of tens of apartment buildings of over a thousand flats, school, hospital, health complex and scientific research bases is now under way.
Under the close concern of the Workers’ Party of Korea and the government, their framework construction and plastering of their exterior and interior have been finished only a few months since the groundbreaking and the project is now close to completion.
Mirae Scientists Street
In August 2013 Kim Jong Un planned a construction project for lecturers and researchers at Kim Chaek University of Technology while looking round the construction site of apartment buildings for educationists at Kim Il Sung University in downtown Pyongyang. To this end, he gave detailed guidance to the designing of the apartment buildings and took all necessary steps.
He visited the construction site in mid-May 2014. Looking at the 46-storeyed, twin apartment buildings on the bank of the picturesque Taedong River, he said that as outer walls of the buildings are curve-shaped, they look like sailing boats on the Taedong and that they are fancy structures of a peculiar style. He stressed that nothing should be spared for educationists who are devoting their life to the training of competent personnel for the country and that it is the intention of the Workers’ Party of Korea to build more such apartment houses for lecturers and researchers in future.
He went on: 500 more flats for the university educationists and public service facilities should be built on the bank of the Taedong River with those under construction as axis. Then, a full street will be formed. It would be advisable to name the new street Mirae (future) Scientists Street.
Under his guidance, the street is making its magnificent appearance as a community of structures of modern architectural beauty.
Scientists streets built or under construction in Pyongyang give a glimpse into the steadfast idea and line of attaching importance to science and technology of Kim Jong Un, who is opening the gate of a thriving country with science and technology as a propellant.
Encouraged by his special love and trust, scientists and technicians in the DPRK are redoubling their efforts to continuously present achievements of cutting-edge science and technology.
