Pyongyang, November 21 (KCNA) -- There is increasing criticism in the U.S. of the Obama administration's "policy of strategic patience" toward the DPRK.
On Nov. 12 the internet homepage of UPI quoted experts as saying
that "strategic patience" policy will not help solve the nuclear issue
of the Korean peninsula, it is unrealistic to expect the early collapse
of north Korea and it is funny for the U.S. to think the security of
nuclear arsenal would be guaranteed once north Korea collapses.
This has something in common with a series of criticism of the
present administration's DPRK policy and such comments as "delinquent
policy" and "totally failed policy that compelled the north to
strengthen the social system and to have access to nuclear weapons" made
by American institutes for policy studies in recent years.
The Obama government's DPRK policy is accelerating the decline of the U.S. as it is a totally failed policy.
After its emergence the Obama administration adopted the "strategic
patience" policy, a copy of the preceding government's hostile policy
toward the DPRK, as its foreign policy for isolating and stifling the
DPRK and has implemented it.
Pursuant to its "waiting strategy" the U.S. has pressurized the DPRK
to "dismantle its nuclear weapons first" and isolated the country
militarily, economically and diplomatically, escalating its moves to
The U.S. denied the sovereign state's legitimate right to develop
space and cooked up "resolution on sanctions" by manipulating the UN
Security Council and pursued a harsh hostile policy toward the DPRK.
The U.S. has persisted in its blockade and nuclear blackmail against
the DPRK, turning down all the constructive proposals made by the DPRK
for ending the instable situation on the peninsula and the sincere
requests made by it to discuss a series of issues including the
denuclearization of the Korean peninsula and the world.
Under the serious situation where the country's supreme interests
were encroached upon, the DPRK had no other choice but to have access to
The responsibility for pushing the DPRK to the access to nuclear
weapons and powerful nuclear strike means rests with the U.S.
Quite contrary to the Obama government's intention to bring down the
DPRK by "strategic patience" policy, the DPRK has demonstrated its
might as a country capable of manufacturing and launching satellites and
producing nuclear weapons.
The line of simultaneously pushing forward economic construction and
the building of a nuclear force has been codified to further bolster up
the nuclear force for self-defence. This has provided an all-powerful
treasured sword for building a people's paradise as early as possible.
The U.S. policy-makers failed to calculate the consequences to be
entailed by the above-said policy. This is their miscalculation.
The longer the U.S. whiles away time with the "waiting strategy",
the more sophisticated the nuclear deterrence of the DPRK will become.
Now at the end of its term after wasting time with the "strategic
patience" policy, the Obama administration has become no longer able to
remain composed as it has become certain that the denuclearization of
the Korean peninsula is nowhere close.
It will benefit the U.S. for its security to boldly roll back its
outdated hostile policy toward the DPRK and respond to Pyongyang's
proposal for concluding a peace treaty at an early date.
It would be wise for the U.S. to judge the situation with cool head
and make a policy decision in line with the trend of the times. -0
