Mastermind of Terrorism and Destruction
In July last Jon Yong Chol was arrested while trying to commit terrorism against statues of the great persons of Mt. Paektu, which are symbolic of the supreme dignity of the Korean people. At a news conference, Jon confessed that the United States provides funds and means of destruction to a statue destruction group under the “Liberation Front for the Northerners” he had belonged to and even examines the group’s plans before giving an approval.
The US has ceaselessly committed terrorist acts in Korea. Occupying south Korea in September 1945 the US aggressors completely stifled the local atmosphere of democracy and reunification by terrorizing democratic figures and pro-reunification personages there at random.
Under the American instigation the pro-American traitor Syngman Rhee assassinated on a crossroads of Seoul in broad daylight in July 1947 Ryo Un Hyong, head of the Popular Party in south Korea who was opposed to the “US Military Government” and insisted on building an independent and democratic, unified state, and in June 1949 murdered Kim Ku, a democratic figure who was working to realize reunification in alliance with the north by forming a front against US imperialism for national salvation. The US aggressors murdered Jo Pong Am, head of the Progressive Party in south Korea, and Sin Ik Hui and Jo Pyong Ok, both presidential candidates of the Democratic Party in south Korea, all regarded as troublesome political rivals in establishing a pro-American dictatorship system.
Like this the US employed terrorism as an important means in turning south Korea into its colony and went so far as to commit political terrorism against the supreme leadership of the DPRK out of an ambition to hold sway over Korea as a whole. On March 1, 1946, when a South Phyongan Provincial meeting was taking place on Pyongyang Railway Station Square to commemorate the 27th anniversary of the March First Popular Uprising, the US masterminded a terrorist explosion against the supreme leadership of the DPRK there in the venue. After unleashing the Korean war in 1950 the US used spies who had stolen into the DPRK to spy out the whereabouts of the KPA Supreme Command, sent terrorists into the place and even made an indiscriminate bombing raid on it. Other numerous heinous acts of terrorism have been recorded in the nearly 70-year-long history of the US’s occupation of south Korea and aggressive attempts against the DPRK.
All kinds of terrorism committed in Korea are the result of the US’s Korea strategy to occupy the entire Korean peninsula. With south Korea it has already occupied as a stepping-stone, the US intends to occupy the DPRK so as to check the neighbouring powers and seize the hegemony of the Northeast Asian region.
The Americans affirmed in the DPRK-USA Joint Communiqué published in October 2000 and in the Joint Statement announced on September 19, 2005 by the six-party talks that they had no hostile intention against the DPRK and that they had no desire to attack or invade the country.
Nevertheless, the US has kept threatening the DPRK by conducting, jointly with south Korea, military exercises such as Key Resolve, Foal Eagle and Ulji Freedom Guardian for a preemptive nuclear strike against the socialist country while trying to stifle it by enacting laws of sanctions against it in succession and by forming an international system of sanctions against it by means of the UN.
The US has long fixed a special allocation in the state budget for the purpose of providing a huge sum of money to anti-DPRK plot-breeding groups which thus have escalated the anti-DPRK smear campaign and the operations for harassing it from within. In June last a “north Korean human rights special envoy” of the Department of the State flew to south Korea and announced that the US would offer US$ 10 000 000 to the groups active to “harass north Korea from within.”
The recent extra-villainous terrorist attempt against the DPRK proves once again that the US does not hesitate to commit a mean act of terrorism to harm the supreme dignity of the DPRK and disrupt the spiritual mainstay of the Korean people in order to realize its ambition of domination.
