US President Bush, during a visit to Canada sometime ago, unveiled the so-called "three great goals" of US foreign policy. He said that the three great goals of US foreign policy are "building a multilateral structure, strengthening the war on terrorism, and promoting democracy." Bush then babbled that he "hopes to foster a wide consensus" in the international community on these three great goals of the United States.
There is no room for even debating that the three great goals of US foreign policy recently announced by Bush are aimed at pacifying the growing international criticism and denunciation of the United States for giving itself up to hegemonism and unilateralism and at further expanding and reinforcing its moves of aggression and interference against other countries even more blatantly. It is outrageous that Bush should have talked about "building a multilateral structure and promoting democracy" while blabbering about "strengthening the war on terrorism." The "war on terrorism" carried out by the United States is a product of its unilateralism and military strong-arm policy and constitutes a flagrant infringement on democracy. The United States' "war on terrorism" is a vicious doctrine of aggression for propagating the US style "democracy" in the international community by force.
The great leader (suryo'ng), Comrade Kim Il-song (Kim Il Sung), taught the following:
"Imperialism is the root cause of war and the destroyer of peace. Imperialists are ceaselessly perpetrating the moves of aggression and war and disturbing peace in every part of the world."
There is no change in the US imperialists' ambition to realize their domination of the world by force, yesterday or today. The United States is employing every possible means and method, including political and economic pressure and interference, and military aggression, to achieve its ambition to dominate the world. The United States' maneuvers to realize its rule over the world are growing increasingly vicious and crafty with each passing day. A clear manifestation of this is found in the maneuvers to propagate the US style "democracy" in the international community by expanding and strengthening the "war on terrorism" in a bid to Americanize the world and establish a unipolar rule and order controlled by the United States.
The United States is reinforcing the maneuvers for propagating the US-style "democracy" through the means of force in the anti-US independent countries and the countries that refuse to meekly comply with what it tells them to do, and in the countries and regions of political and economic strategic importance.
The United States' "war on terrorism" is currently being used as the US imperialists' new doctrine of aggression for propagating the US-style "democracy" throughout the world by force.
The infamous "war on terrorism" is what the United States contrived as a new doctrine of aggression for realizing its ambition to rule the world by cunningly taking advantage of the changed trend in the international situation in the new century and propagating the US style "democracy" with strength.
After the "September 11 incident" in 2001, the United States used this as an opportunity to exploit the "fight with terrorism" as the leverage and means for propagating the US style "democracy" in the world by force in the new century.
The United States raised the curtain on the "war on terrorism" by launching the Afghan war under the cloak of "wiping out" the "Al-Qa'ida" stronghold. The bellicose Bush forces publicized that the "war on terrorism" is for the "security" of the United States, for the "repression of terrorism," and for the "peace" of the world. They then threatened that the countries that do not support the United States in this "war on terrorism" would be "perceived as being on the side of terrorism." This indeed was a manifestation of extreme arrogance. As time passed, however, the reactionary essence and illegal nature of the United States' "war on terrorism" came to be laid bare completely. What the United States sought was to deceive the world's public opinion with what sounds like plausible talk on "anti-terrorism," so as to expand its military and political dominance over major areas of natural resources and strategically important regions, and propagate the US-style "democracy" with strength. Positive proof of this is the nonsense Bush uttered during a press conference, prattling that the "mission of the war on terrorism lies in wiping out terrorism elements with military means and also in propagating democracy" and that the "wars the US forces are carrying out in Afghanistan and Iraq are precisely the wars for propagating democracy."
Through the Afghan war and the war of aggression against Iraq, the United States was able to assume control of these strategic areas it has long been after and also achieve military infiltration and expansion of its sphere of influence in Central Asian countries and the Middle East.
The US style "democracy" touted by the Bush gang is a doctrine of repressing human rights and seeking domination that has nothing to do with genuine democracy.
The US imperialists' aggression against Iraq and the Iraqi realities under the occupation of the US forces clearly reveal the reactionary and deceitful nature of the US style "democracy." Due to the United States' brigandish war of aggression, Iraqi cities and villages have been severely destroyed, and countless people have been killed or injured. According to the latest foreign news reports, more than 100,000 Iraqi civilians have been killed in less than two years since the Iraqi war began. A vicious cycle of terrorism and retaliation persists, and the people's right to existence and political freedom have been ruthlessly violated. While the United States was clamoring for "anti-terrorism" and "propagation of democracy," countless of innocent children and women were killed, spilling blood, due to the US occupation forces' offensive operation against Fallujah in Iraq. It is apparent to anyone that they could not have been the "enemy of democracy," much less "elements of terrorism."
The US imperialists are indeed the heinous forces of aggression, the destroyer and annihilator of human civilization, and the world's worst violator of human rights that wantonly violate international law and universal ethics and morality of mankind and attempt to turn the world into a unipolar world ruled by the high-handedness and hegemonism of the United States under the cloak of the "war on terrorism."
The "war on terrorism" the United States is babbling about can never coexist with genuine democracy. In the places where the United States wages the "war on terrorism," the democratic freedom and rights of the people are repressed and obliterated and the sovereignty of countries and nations is violated without any exception.
The United States' "war on terrorism" and its acts of infringement upon the autonomy of sovereign states and the atrocities of abusing human rights are arousing strong opposition and denunciation from the international community. Voices criticizing and denouncing the United States' unilateralism and "war on terrorism" are emerging strongly even from its allies. While Bush was emphatically stressing the three great goals of US foreign policy at the Canadian Parliament, countless people assembled around the Parliament House and staged anti-US, anti-Bush protests, carrying placards that read: "Bush is a war criminal." This starkly showed that the United States' "war on terrorism" is a target of international criticism, denunciation, and curses.
Despite these facts, the United States continues to expand the "war on terrorism" and further increases the intensity of its military threat and blackmail, and political, economic, and diplomatic pressure against other countries on the basis of the "terrorism issue" and the "human rights issue." Bush has said recklessly that (the United States) would "take measures of action against 'terrorism' and 'rogue states' when deemed necessary." This was actually no different from officially declaring that the United States would not hesitate to commit acts of aggression, including a military preemptive attack, for the "propagation of democracy" against any country at any time it believes to be necessary.
This is why the United States, while picking a quarrel with the "human rights situation" of other countries, blabbers about "taking firm measures" if its "demand to improve the human rights situation is not met."
The United States' offensive for propagating the US-style "democracy" in the world by force is being carried out even more viciously against our country. The US imperialists are reinforcing their "human rights" offensive aimed at "system overthrow" and "propagation of democracy" of US style, while arrogantly denouncing our country as part of an "axis of evil" and a "rogue state."
Sometime ago, the United States persisted in cooking up the so-called "North Korean Human Rights Act," despite opposition at home and abroad. This "Act" is filled with extremely vicious and toxic anti-DPRK clauses that include a stipulation on disbursing huge funds from the US Government budget to the organizations and individuals that participate in the activities seeking to "overthrow the system" of our country in the name of "improving human rights." The United States is also scheming to make our country collapse from within and to "destroy" our style socialist system by increasing the hours of anti-DPRK broadcasts and massively smuggling portable radios and impure publication and propaganda materials into our country.
The aggressive essence and reactionary nature of the United States' "war on terrorism" and the "propagation of democracy" of US style are being brought to light all the more clearly with each passing day.
All the countries that aspire for independence should check and rupture the aggressive "war on terrorism," clearly seeing through the criminal and dangerous nature of the US imperialists' maneuvers to propagate the US-style "democracy" in the world by force.
