KCNA Commentary Urges U.S. to Boldly Roll back Its Outdated DPRK Policy

  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 stifle it.
    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 nuclear weapons.
    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
