North Korea: U.S. Double Standards Policy on Nuclear Issue under Fire
U.S. President Obama declared in the Czech Republic in last April that the United States would take the lead in making a "nuclear arms reduction" and "bringing about a world without nuclear weapons." During his trip to France made later he uttered he would pursue the goal of "working toward a world without nuclear weapons."
But when he was meeting former Japanese Prime Minister Abe, Obama claimed that the U.S. "nuclear disarmament should not be a hurdle in providing a nuclear umbrella to its allies."
Rodong Sinmun Tuesday observes in a signed commentary in this regard:
As seen above, the U.S. is double-tongued and applies double standards as regards the nuclear issue.
The U.S. unreasonably brands the DPRK, Iran and other countries incurring its displeasure as "nuclear criminals" by taking issue even with their legitimate nuclear activities for peaceful purposes. But it shuts its eyes to the nuclear issues of the countries and forces that meekly obey and follow it and keep mum about them.
It is an open secret that the U.S. sent nuclear experts to Israel, its ally, to help Israel in its nuclear development and delivered highly enriched uranium to it and sold a lot of equipment for developing nuclear weapons to that country. In short, the U.S. is a conspirator and helper of Israel in its nuclear weaponization. The U.S. pretends not to know the fact that Israel has hundreds of nukes in place.
The U.S. also shuts its eyes to Japan's wild ambition to go nuclear.
An international committee, describing Japan as "the only non-nuclear weapons state producing plutonium," disclosed that there is a factory capable of producing plutonium enough to produce 1,000 nuclear weapons every year by reprocessing spent nuclear fuel in Rokkasho in Aomori Prefecture, Japan.
This being a hard reality, the U.S. pretends to be ignorant of this fact for the mere reason that it is its junior ally. This clearly suggests that the U.S. loud-mouthed "world free from nuclear weapons" is nothing but sheer hypocrisy.
Now that the U.S. is keen to mount a preemptive nuclear attack on the DPRK and stifle it through the application of the above-said double standards the DPRK is left with no option but to bolster up its nuclear deterrent and take strong counter-measures.
