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
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
