KCNA Commentary Blasts U.S. Sophism about “Unification by Communizing South”

Pyongyang, February 24 (KCNA) — The Trump group, which has been vocal about the DPRK’s nuclear weapons for self-defence by branding them as a “threat” to the world, is now describing them as the ones for “unification by communizing the south”, only to provoke the laughter of the world people.

Dan Coats, director of National Intelligence, CIA Director Pompeo and other top officials of the intelligence agencies of the U.S. at official appearances including the congressional hearing said that the DPRK’s ultimate goal is to unify Korea by “communizing the south” with use of nuclear weapons.
McMaster, assistant to the president for National Security of the White House, also said the DPRK’s nuclear weapons “aim at intimidation for the purpose of unifying the Korean peninsula under the red flag”.
Commander-in-Chief of the U.S. Armed Forces in the Pacific Harris, who has been designated as the U.S. ambassador to Australia, claimed at the House of Representatives Armed Services Committee that the DPRK’s nuclear possession is for “reunifying the Korean peninsula under the communist system” and that even though dialogue is held with it, a focus must be set on removing nuclear weapons from the Korean peninsula.
What matters is that this sophism was presented at a time when there is widespread opinion in the international community that the DPRK’s nuclear possession is a decisive option taken due to the U.S. nuclear threat and hostile policy and at a time when there opened a dramatic phase for reconciliation on the Korean peninsula thanks to the proactive measure taken by the DPRK in the new year, in particular.
In a word, the sophism is a card played as last-ditch efforts, being upset by the development. The signboard of “unification by communizing the south” was the one oft-repeated by the south Korean conservative group.
This eloquently proves the wretched situation of the U.S.
Clear is its aim. It seeks to brand the DPRK’s nuclear weapons as the ones for “unifying Korea by communizing the south”, justify arms buildup in and around the Korean peninsula, incite hostility toward the DPRK in south Korea and chill the atmosphere for the improvement of the inter-Korean relations under the pretext of “protecting” its alleged ally south Korea.
But the U.S. is gravely mistaken.
The DPRK’s state nuclear force never targets the fellow countrymen as it is the strategic asset common to the nation for guaranteeing the peace and security on the Korean peninsula.
It will be enough to provoke laughter to think that the DPRK built the nuclear force and even have had access to the inter-continental ballistic missile, risking everything just to put palm-size south Korea only under its nose under control.
The DPRK’s nuclear weapons are targeted against the U.S. and if the U.S. shows even the slightest sign of provocation, the whole U.S. mainland will face resolute and merciless nuclear blow.
The Trump group had better understand its position and make a wise option of withdrawing the hostile policy toward the DPRK before provoking the laughter of the world.
