U.S. Termed Heinous Human Rights Abuser
Pyongyang, December 2 (KCNA) -- The United States should make an apology to the international community for its human rights abuses before talking about "human rights issues" of other countries. Rodong Sinmun Wednesday urges this in a signed article.

It goes on:

The U.S. behaves as if it were an "inspector" and "judge" privileged to deal with the human rights issues of the world. It announces "annual report on human rights" every year critical of "human rights performance" of other countries.

This "annual report" claiming "assessing" the human rights situation of the world has sparked off complicated problems worldwide as it was a smear campaign little short of interfering in the internal affairs of other countries.

In the 1980s the U.S. attacked Grenada and Panama by force of arms and in the 1990s made an indiscriminate air raid on Yugoslavia. They were all committed under the slogan of "safeguarding human rights."

Civilian death by the U.S. occupation troops is reported in an unbroken chain in Afghanistan and Iraq under the pretext of "purging terrorists."

These days the world is becoming increasingly assertive calling for unveiling the human rights abuses committed by the U.S. in overseas secret prisons and closing the prison at the U.S. naval base of Guantanamo. This is a manifestation of anger and resistance of the international community against the U.S. hideous human rights abuses.

The hypocritical and deceptive nature of U.S. sophism of "protection of human rights" is clearly proved by the poor human rights record in the U.S.

It is a revelation of the extreme impudence and arrogance for the U.S. to dare take issue with other countries' "human rights issues" while shelving its own human rights abuses although it is beset with such innumerable cases of human rights abuses as aggression upon sovereign states and killing of civilians.
