Rodong Sinmun Exposes Reactionary Nature of Western-Style "Democracy"
Pyongyang, January 15 (KCNA) -- Western-style "democracy" is the most reactionary and unpopular politics mercilessly trampling down the aspiration and demand of the popular masses for freedom and democracy, says Rodong Sinmun Wednesday in an article.

"Democracy" touted by the U.S. is the slogan for aggression and interference to realize its ambition for dominating the world, the article says, and goes on:

Those keen on violating the sovereignty of other countries at random under the pretext of protecting the "freedom of individual character" are criminals who stamp out the basic right and freedom of the popular masses.

Bombs are exploding and people killed in streets almost every day in Iraq, which the U.S. is putting forward as an "example of democracy". Iraq has turned into a theatre of destruction, plunder and massacre. This goes to clearly prove the true appearance of "freedom" and "democracy" the U.S. is trying hard to impose on other countries.

The U.S. is regarding it as one of the major goals of its foreign policy to promote "freedom and democracy" in different parts of the world. It is considering that it is natural for all the members of the international community to follow its political mode.

It is forcing other countries and nations to follow the Western-style political mode and order of life and accept them. This is nothing but a high-handed practice to deprive the people of other countries of the right of choosing idea and ism and it is also little short of denying and violating democracy itself.

The U.S. persists in imposing "color revolution" on other countries. This is aimed to create uneasiness in relevant countries, quench social harmony and, in the long run, destroy all the achievements made by the people.

To oppose Western-style "democracy" is an important issue to defend the sovereignty and dignity of the countries and nations and ensure true democracy.
