Pyongyang, March 21 (KCNA) — Some time ago, high-ranking officials of the U.S. administration including Bush and Rice vied with each other to raise a hue and cry over the “human rights situation” in the DPRK as part of its smear campaign against it.
This is nothing but a ridiculous “human rights” racket kicked off by the worst human rights abuser, a base mudslinging and a sinister political provocation against the DPRK. Rodong Sinmun Tuesday observes this in a signed commentary. It goes on:
The U.S. has neither right nor face to talk about human rights.
It is a typical inhuman society where people are denied elementary right to existence and human rights are wantonly violated.
The U.S. has blatantly abused human rights not only in the international arena but at home. The U.S. imperialists invaded and occupied Iraq in a brigandish manner defying the UN and the world public protest, cruelly killing innocent Iraqis. They made no scruple of using even chemical weapons in Iraq to burn many civilians including children and women to death in gross violation of international law and conventions.
This being a hard reality, the U.S. claims to be a “defender of human rights” and a “human rights judge”, shamelessly paying lip-service to human rights. This is an insult to the genuine human rights and human conscience.
The U.S. loudmouthed “human rights issue” is nothing but a political fiction aimed at intensifying its interference in the internal affairs of other countries and its operations to overthrow their governments and stifle them. The “human rights” racket launched by the U.S. against the DPRK on the basis of the above-said fiction would get it nowhere.
The U.S. would be well advised to immediately halt the politically-motivated “human rights” racket against the DPRK.
