America and North Korea

The Us is the worst human  rights abuser and yet styling itself an ‘‘international judge’’, it continually dishes out data on human rights violations in North Korea while going to bully as to dub the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) as an ‘‘authoritarian state’’. ‘‘2016 country report on human rights’’ published by the US State Department on March 3—an annual ritual—has cited numerous facts collected from the North Korean defectors, to justify US claim that North Korea is a totalitarian state, having no respect for democracy and human rights.

But North Korea strongly rejects the "US Human Rights Report" aimed to threaten the political stability of a country and bring down its social and political system under the "human rights standard" based on the American view on value.

Aggression and interference in the internal affairs of other countries and nations are justified on the international arena at present under the "human rights standard" set by the US.

Prompted by their unilateral geopolitical interests, the US took issue with human rights situation in other countries through prejudice and fabrication guided by the American-style "human rights standard" as before. They want to destroy North Korean social system and so this gospel of human rights violations by Pyongyang. If they allow American multi-nationals to plunder their natural resources then the human rights issue will never arise.

But the US brought down legitimate states through "color revolution" and spawned the worst-ever refugee problem while wantonly interfering in the internal affairs of sovereign states under the signboard of "defence of human rights".

It is ridiculous for the US to publish the report faulting the human rights performance in other countries while styling itself international arbiter being unaware of where it stands.

Polaris, a flesh traffic information body, made public a report that flesh traffic in the US in 2016 increased 35.7 percent as compared with that in the previous year, a clear proof of the poor human rights performance there.

The US is heading towards chaos due to the extreme gap between the rich and the poor and all sorts of social evils prevalent there. However, it is faulting Korean-style socialist system where the working masses refuse to subscribe to American way of life [Amway].

No country considers that the US is making "efforts" to work out "human rights reports" on other countries out of its true concern about human rights performance.

The US "human rights report" is just a tool for aggression for bringing down the ideology and system of other countries and attaining its hegemonic aims.

A clear proof of this is the human rights abuses perpetrated by the US soldiers in the Middle East, particularly in Iraq as also in Afghanistan.

The US has no elementary moral qualifications to talk about "human rights issue" of the DPRK as it threatens the right to existence of the Korean people to the extremes through the unprecedented blockade-type "sanctions" pursuant to its vicious hostile policy toward the DPRK.

All the countries on earth have the right to exercise their right to realise their own independent desire under the institutional and legal guarantees provided by the state where they reside.

The "human rights report" annually made public by the US for decades is aimed to infringe upon the sovereignty of other countries.

The US will get nothing through the "human rights" smear campaign, part of its hostile policy toward the DPRK.

Human rights can never be a playing thing of the US.

Meanwhile, the US secretary of State Rex Tillerson warned of armed action against North Korea. The Korean peninsula has no respite from being hauted by war—anything can happen anytime. Human Rights issue is a prelude to attack North Korea.
