Objective Assessment of Validity of DPRK's Access to Nuclear Weapons: KCNA Commentary

Pyongyang, October 2 (KCNA) -- The British magazine The Week in a recent article said that the north's access to nuclear weapons plays the role of a shield deterring the U.S. from attacking north Korea, asserting that the DPRK's option was right in the light of the deplorable situation in Mid-east countries.
    The magazine said that after the September 11 incident the U.S. attacked Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Yemen, Somalia and other countries, but not North Korea as it is possessed of nuclear weapons.
    This can not but be an objective estimation of the justice of the DPRK's possession of nuclear weapons that was prompted by the constant nuclear threat and threat of military aggression from the U.S.
    As known, the worldwide Cold-War has lasted for the past seven decades and wars, big or small, broke out in various regions but not in nuclear weapons states.
    In the past nuclear powers including the U.S. committed indiscriminate interference in the internal affairs and arbitrary practices against non nuclear states by abusing the partial international political structure.
    Those countries that sought to bolster capability for self-defence and have access to nuclear deterrence were subject to threat and blackmail through military pressure and economic sanctions. In the meantime, they were taken in by economic aid and propaganda for rapprochement.
    Even before the Iraqi war, the U.S. pressurized Iraq into destroying military hardware and facilities including missiles that formed the core of its armed forces. Then the U.S. started the war and swallowed Iraq up.
    Libya scrapped its decades-old nuclear program, pinning hope on big powers and yielding to their pressure and appeasement, and abandoned its nuclear deterrence. In the end it fell victim to aggression. The tragic situation of several countries including Libya teaches a serious lesson.
    Some countries on the Balkans and in Mideast fell victim to the interference in internal affairs and aggression by the U.S. and other Western forces because they neglected the work of increasing the defence capability.
    If a country is weak, it can not protect its sovereignty and dignity nor can it achieve the people's happiness and prosperity.
    The U.S. and other hostile forces are now loudly speaking of denuclearization, while getting busy to realize international cooperation in stand-off with the DPRK.
    Their last-ditch efforts to force the DPRK to scrap its nuclear deterrence clearly prove that the nuclear deterrence is the best means for defence that guarantees peaceful environment and stable conditions for the development and prosperity of the country and the nation.
    The aim sought by the U.S. is to force the DPRK to dismantle its nukes and overthrow its social system by employing every possible means and methods.
    The hostile forces have to clearly understand that the DPRK is neither Iraq nor Libya.
    The measures for bolstering up its military muscle, a legitimate right to self-defence, will remain unchanged no matter what others may say and no matter how the situation may change.
    The army and people of the DPRK will hold more tightly the treasured sword of nuclear weapons and pave a wide avenue to prosperity in the face of the U.S. imperialists' ever-increasing moves for military pressure, blockade, appeasement and deception.
    The DPRK will continue to bolster its nuclear deterrence for self-defence unless the U.S. rolls back its outdated hostile policy toward the DPRK. -0-
