KCNA Commentary Advises U.S. to Think with Reason

    Pyongyang, November 29 (KCNA) -- There are politicians in the U.S. who have still an unrealistic way of thinking about the DPRK.
    Antony Blinken, U.S. deputy secretary of State, claimed that "north Korea cannot be recognized as a nuclear weapons state and its access to nukes should not be allowed," negating the assertion made by the director of National Intelligence of the U.S. that the denuclearization of Korea is a failure.
    In this regard an expert on Korean affairs in an article contributed to NK News said that the man styling himself a politician is still claiming Pyongyang's denuclearization to be the goal of the U.S. because of little experience in the Northeast Asian issue, adding that Blinken seems to live in the juvenile world.
    This is jeering at the anachronistic and trite way of thinking of the man who has no elementary ability to face up to the reality.
    It is long since the theory of "DPRK's possible dismantlement of its nukes" touted by the U.S. and some other countries went bust due to the world's recognition of the changed strategic position of the DPRK.
    The U.S. and many other Western media which had taken a hostile approach towards the DPRK are giving wide publicity to the public demands for the earliest possible drop of the bankrupt hostile policy towards the DPRK, asserting that it is not necessary to expect north Korea to dismantle its nukes.
    Recently Michael Hayden, former director of CIA, in an article contributed to the U.S. paper "The Hill" confessed to the fact about the denuclearization of Korea being an impossible goal was the view already unofficially shared among the U.S. intelligence authorities a decade ago. This created big sensation.
    All these facts objectively prove that the U.S. finds itself in such tight corner that it has no choice but to change its strategic option.
    It is great irony that Blinken is still sticking to the unrealistic way of thinking against this backdrop.
    The completely failed policy towards the DPRK being a stark fact, it is not only foolish but an extremely dangerous option to persistently resort to the completely failed strategy.
    The U.S. should not persist in something impossible.
    The successive U.S. administrations from Truman to Obama have squandered funds running into astronomical figures for pursuing their policy to stifle the DPRK for several decades. The U.S. needs to seriously reflect on what it gained from such policy.
    The pig-headed stand of persistently denying the strategic position of the full-fledged nuclear power in the East would only result in impairing the position of the superpower tight-cornered over the Korean issue.
    Washington would be well advised to face up to the reality.
    It can take a wise option only when it proceeds from a realistic way of thinking. -0
