Any Illusion and Fear of U.S. Imperialists Lead to Death: Rodong Sinmun
| Pyongyang, October 18 (KCNA) -- If a nation harbors illusion about the U.S. imperialists, taken in by honeyed words of "peace" and "cooperation", and trembles for fear of their horror strategy, it will be bound to become slaves and meet death, much less achieving independent development.
Rodong Sinmun on Thursday says this in a bylined article.
U.S. imperialism is by no means something to be frightened at, the article notes, and goes on:
The Korean war, the Vietnamese war, etc. in the last century proved that if the leadership, army and people get united single-mindedly and wage a staunch fight against the U.S. imperialists, they can surely defeat them and defend the national sovereignty and dignity.
However, the people who underwent tragedy failed to believe in their strength.
After the demise of the Cold War, those people were cheated by the plausible propaganda of the U.S. imperialists or were afraid of their nuclear blackmail and, accordingly, they failed to properly see through their true colors.
So, they accepted the American-style "view of value" under the pressure of the U.S. imperialists. They carried out "reforms" and "opened" their countries to the U.S. in political, economic, military and other fields.
Those countries suffered disasters in return for meeting the requirements of the U.S. imperialists. They brought these countries nothing but humiliation, disgrace, internal disorder and disputes.
What was more serious was that the army which should defend the security of the country and the people wavered.
Armies of those countries could not prevent their governments from collapsing under their very noses.
When the U.S. imperialists started invasion, service members of a certain country dropped their arms and fled the invaders.
This was the miserable fate of those countries which harbored illusion and fear of the U.S. imperialists.
In order to counter the U.S. imperialists' "appeasement" strategy with a revolutionary principle and independent one against imperialism and react to hard-line actions with the toughest stand it is essential not to have even the slightest illusion and fear of them.
Only when a country or nation achieves the unity of the leadership, army and people and bolster the capacity for self-defence, foiling the U.S. imperialists' ideological and cultural poisoning and psychological warfare, is it possible to be free from any illusion and fear of them and protect the sovereignty of the country and national dignity.
