US Imperialists' Germ Warfare during Korean War Slammed
| Pyongyang, March 31 (KCNA) -- Media of different countries of the world are giving wide coverage to the recent disclosure of new evidence proving that the U.S. imperialists waged the germ warfare during the last Korean war.
According to them, in September 1951 the then chairman of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff issued an order to "start a large-scale field experiment to examine the effect of special microorganism during the operation".
Rodong Sinmun Wednesday observes in a signed commentary carried in this regard:
This is historical evidence laying bare the cruel and brutal nature of the U.S. imperialists.
The commentary cites facts to prove that the U.S. imperialists adopted the germ warfare as one of the basic means of war and indiscriminately perpetrated it against the peaceable inhabitants.
They developed germ weapons to kill more innocent people and unhesitatingly used these weapons against them during the war. This was the thrice-cursed atrocity which could be committed only by the U.S. imperialists, the brutes in human shape and with inborn wolfish nature, the commentary says, and goes on:
The U.S. has committed the worst massacres and human rights abuses but is loudmouthed about "humanitarianism" and "respect for human rights," thus deceiving and making a mockery of human consciousness.
Shortly ago, the U.S. in "its country reports on human rights practices for 2009" took issue with "the human rights record" of this country or that one.
The U.S. is behaving as if it were "an international human rights judge", impudently advocating the "defense of human rights" even at the U.N. forum.
No matter what sleight of hand the U.S. may employ, shamelessly disguising itself as "a champion of human rights", this will get it nowhere.
The U.S. would be well advised to honestly admit the germ warfare waged against the Korean people during the last Korean war and redeem its crime.
