Pyongyang, January 16 (KCNA) -- Outgoing Obama and his gentries are making desperate efforts to keep afloat their hostile policy toward the DPRK which has gone totally bankrupt before leaving the White House.
They let the Department of State release "second report on human rights in north Korea" and put seven individuals and two institutions of the DPRK on the list of additional targets of sanctions on January 11, pursuant to the step of the Department of Treasury.
This is nothing but Washington's last resort to tarnish the image of the DPRK in the light of the present DPRK-U.S. relations as the contents of the sanctions call for prohibiting the entry of its personnel into the U.S. and trade with Americans, freezing of their assets there, etc. This is the last-ditch efforts of those whose days are numbered.
The U.S. has never suffered such miserable setback and shame as today in the long-standing political and military confrontation with the DPRK.
In lieu of drawing a lesson from the footsteps of the Bush administration which pushed the DPRK to have access to nuclear weapons, the Obama administration has pursued its hostile policy towards the DPRK and persistently resorted to the worst nuclear threat and blackmail and the harshest-ever sanctions against it.
It had a pipedream that the DPRK will yield to it with the passage of time and "north Korea will collapse" when time comes. But the result was catastrophic beyond the U.S. imagination.
The DPRK reacted to the U.S. extreme hostile moves against the DPRK by codifying the line of simultaneously pushing forward economic construction and the building of nuclear force and channeled all efforts into implementing it.
The DPRK succeeded in diversifying, miniaturizing and standardizing nuclear warheads and increased the types of their delivery means and diversified them, perfectly bolstering up the military capability to mercilessly wipe out aggressors and bringing the nation's strategic position to the highest level.
The DPRK foiled the hostile forces' racket for sanctions by dint of the single-minded unity and the great spirit of self-development displayed by the service personnel and people and achieved miraculous victories on all fronts for building a socialist power, thus demonstrating once again the might of Juche Korea before the world.
The U.S. strategies of making preemptive nuclear attack and slapping extreme sanctions and pressure against the DPRK have become a source of threatening the security of its mainland.
The Obama group can hardly have a sound sleep, seized with the extreme uneasiness after facing the undeniable strategic setback. Worse still, they are hit hard by the public.
Much upset by this situation, the Obama group have gone so foolish as to kick up the "human rights" racket against the DPRK.
They seek to recover from a heavy setback and get rid of their pretty fix by tarnishing the image of the DPRK at any cost.
The U.S. is not qualified to talk about somebody's "human rights" as it is the world's worst human rights abuser and a tundra of human rights.
Obama would be well advised not to waste time taking issue with other's "human rights issue" but make good arrangements for packing in the White House. He had better repent of the pain and misfortune he has brought to so many Americans and other people of the world by creating the worst human rights situation in the U.S. during his tenure of office.
The DPRK will protect Korean-style socialism to the last no matter what others may say as it thoroughly embodies the popular masses-first principle, the crystal of the Juche-oriented outlook on the people, the philosophy on them.
