Rodong Sinmun Urges U.S. to Face up to Changed Situation and Behave Itself
Pyongyang, August 1 (KCNA) -- The U.S. had better face up to the strategic climate newly created on the Korean peninsula and the trend of the times and behave itself, urges Rodong Sinmun Monday in a commentary.

It goes on:

The U.S. is persistently ignoring the changed situation on the Korean peninsula and desperately finding fault with the DPRK while resorting to nuclear threat and blackmail and war drumbeats. This is like the guilty party filing the suit first.

What the U.S. is now doing can never bring the present changed times back to those in the past.

The U.S. has long resorted to nuclear threat and blackmail against the DPRK for not yielding to its pressure while paying no heed to the latter's demand for denuclearizing the whole of the Korean peninsula.

The historical lesson prompted the DPRK to decide to have access to strong nuclear force, treasured sword of justice. And it emerged a great nuclear power admired by the world.

The U.S. is the arch criminal disturbing the denuclearization of the peninsula and sparking off a nuclear arms race as it has persistently posed nuclear threat and blackmail and staged ceaseless joint military drills, gravely threatening the security of the DPRK pursuant to its anachronistic hostile policy toward it. The U.S. can never evade the responsibility for them.

The U.S. increasing nuclear threat to the DPRK would only prompt the latter to escalate its nuclear threat to the former. The U.S., a nuclear rogue state, is only fated to suffer the nightmare of unending uneasiness and horror.

The U.S. maximization of threat to the DPRK by introducing nuclear strategic assets would compel the latter to spur the bolstering of nuclear deterrence.
