Democracy and Class Struggle say the Socialism in words and Imperialism in deeds - the Social Imperialist character of Chinese Regime is now obvious - it does not represent the people of China just its elite - time for the people of China to step forward and rectify the shameless position on North Korea.
Chinese Media's Shameless and Impudent Acts Blasted
Pyongyang, September 22 (KCNA)
Following is the full text of a signed article "Rude Deed of Shameless Media":
Some media of China are seriously hurting the line and social system of the DPRK and threatening the DPRK at a time when the U.S. and its vassal forces have reached the extremes in their frantic moves to impose sanctions and pressure on the DPRK over the DPRK's just exercise of its right to self-defence.
The Chinese People's Daily and its sister paper Huan Qui Shibao and websites People's Network and Huan Qui Network insulted the DPRK, saying "it pricked its own eyes with its own hands" and "it was a noose put around its own neck" while shunning the legitimacy of the DPRK's possession of nuclear weapons and the self-defensive nature of its measure for bolstering the national nuclear force. Not content with this, they said "it would face the fate of sun setting in the western sky" and set forth such presumptuous "initiatives" as "international solidarity" and organization of "forum international think-tank" for settling the nuclear issue of the DPRK.
As for the "sanctions resolution" against the DPRK, the dirty excrement of the reactionaries of history, they spouted such extremely ill-boding words that China "did not target the normal living of the people in the DPRK" and "DPRK is fortunate to have China as its neighbor".
In a word, their comment meant that the small country DPRK put itself and the international community as a whole at a "peril" for standing against "the world's superpower" with the manufacture of nuclear weapons, and that there is nothing to be displeased over the step of decrease of food taken to make the DPRK, "chief culprit rendering the world restless" get exhausted.
This can not be construed otherwise than an act of the blind whose eyes are open and the deaf and dumb who look outwardly normal as they can not understand the essence of the nuclear issue of the Korean peninsula nor can they properly see, hear and express the changed international political situation in the wake of the DPRK's possession of nuclear weapons.
Moreover, the news media openly faulted the line of other sovereign state. This makes one think that it was quite natural for them to lose trust from people of their own country and the international community to not a small measure due to their self-complacence and prejudice.
Even though they can be pretexts to shield their clumsy plight of getting dragged on by the U.S., we can not connive at their acts of dare hurting the dignity of the state and people of the DPRK.
As was already emphasized, the DPRK's access to a nuclear deterrence was pursuant to the strategic decision of the party and state of the DPRK to fundamentally terminate the decade-old U.S. hideous hostile policy toward the DPRK and nuclear threat and blackmail, and this finally led the DPRK to possess H-bomb for ICBM, the absolute weapons on the earth.
Even at this moment, the U.S. hatches sinister scheme of provoking a nuclear war and is holding dangerous secret war confab after introducing to the Korean peninsula and the region huge strategic hardware enough to fight several wars while openly calling for "totally destroying north Korea".
History and reality teach a serious lesson that only powerful strength can defend oneself from the tyrannical nuclear weapons.
The military attack on Syria committed in the eyes of neighboring big powers including China in April last showed the world in practice what the "peace by strength" touted by the Trump administration meant, and Beijing might have felt not a great deal.
What matters is that how can The Chinese People's Daily and media under it which had trumpeted about "sovereignty and independence in the road for social progress" and "peculiar sovereign position" spout principle-less nonsense that are mocked even by Trump's twitters.
If they are not novice reptile media devoid of insight and their own view to the international politics, they should be well aware of themselves before commenting on others.
Now heard from DPRK-China border are reflective complaints on who became hopeless as the consequences of the U.S.-manipulated "sanctions resolution" on the DPRK.
A Chinese businessman who was left empty-handed in the trade with the DPRK said: I don't know politics and diplomacy. But one thing is clear. Korea, not a big country, is talking what it wants to say and does what it wants to do while standing against the U.S., the superpower. It's hard to understand what's wrong with China. Lots of minor businesses in three northeastern provinces of China are suffering huge losses. Then why does it kowtow to the U.S. I really feel shame. I am more afraid of the corruption of the state than the corruption of people.
This is the public mindset.
Literally speaking, media styling themselves speaking for the people had better use their heads to read the people's mindset and speak for the people of their own country, rather than admonishing others.
If it is the organ of a party styling itself the initiator of "principle of non-interference" outside, it can stand with dignity before the world people only when it maintains this principle.
As for "good neighbor", the DPRK has much more to say about it.
When the Soviet Union and the U.S. and the whole world released denunciation statements over the first nuclear test carried out by China in the 1960s, it was only the DPRK, good neighbor, which actively supported it and encouraged it through government statement.
When high-spirited White House owner set out on his trip to China, its neighbor DPRK released a worldwide aphorism that Nixon's China visit was not a march of victor but a trip of loser with a white flag in his hand, thus helping the big neighbor save shame and maintain its face. China might know this sincere neighbor more than itself.
Then why is it going under the armpit of the U.S. while holding a white flag to blame the good neighbor.
Nixon, suffering from disease from wrath by the unusual principle and resourcefulness of the DPRK which stopped the historical disgrace which could have been a shame on the socialist camp, had called for a "war with China" till the last day of his leave from office. This is quite alike the act of Trump who is teasing Beijing, caught in the trap of "world economy", under the pretext of "nuclear issue of Korea". It is seen by the whole world.
The DPRK knows which way it should follow.
The DPRK does not have to lie on its face just as China did when it visited the U.S. and there is no need for China to force the DPRK to learn it.
History proved that the path covered by the DPRK for nearly one century has been an un-trodden path through thick and thin but it was far-sighted and promising option as this helped the country escape the tragic events witnessed in Eastern Europe which was mentally disarmed in the face of the imperialists, and as this helped others to evade clumsy situation of not breathing properly being caught in the noose of dollars.
The Korean people have learned the might of unity and happiness even though they did not lead a plentiful life and they have the perspective and generosity of looking far into the dawning tomorrow in the darkness.
As for the fortune of the DPRK, its people are not such ignorant people who foresee their fortune by money or divination sign.
Though small in territory and population, the people of the DPRK have such fortune which no other country and nation has and therefore, we feel sorrowful at the neighbor seeking money only without its own soul even though it is big.
Lots of countries and peoples of the world are keenly realizing where lies the genuine fortune of each country and nation while viewing the admirable DPRK greeting the great change in its destiny and standing against the "world's only superpower" while taking the lead of the struggle to defend peace of the region and the world, although it had its territory totally usurped by big powers keen on scramble and was trampled down under them in the past because it was weak in strength.
Truly frustrating is the perspective of the political hangers-on who are just satisfied to have their rice bowl safe even though the neighbor is thieved while considering Korea just as a front yard and "buffer zone" for holding back the invasion by robber.
It is the U.S. and other dishonest and hostile forces who are taking issue this or that way while doggedly shunning the reality of Juche Korea.
The light act of China's media openly resorting to interference in the internal affairs of other country, being oblivious of the mission of media which should regard objectivity and impartiality as their lifeline, would be little short of driving a wedge between the two countries and the two peoples, pursuant to the U.S.
The party organ of the socialist country bragging long history denounced socialist Korea so maliciously in collusion with the imperialists. This leaves us think that whether they can be entitled to enter the coming party conference hall only when they register the dirty reptile records of betraying the peoples of the two countries.
The Chinese media had better watch how the DPRK smashes the hostile forces' arrogance and high-handed practices, rather than kowtowing to the ignorant acts of the Trump administration.
They had better mind their own businesses, before impudently pointing an accusing finger at others.
Korea is a land of rising sun as its name implies and one has to turn one's head toward China to watch the sun setting in the western sky in Korea.

Kim Jong Un Calls President Trump 'Mentally Deranged' After Threat to Destroy North Korea and schools him on English Language
Democracy and Class Struggle says Kim Jon Un is taking Trump to school in his latest statement introducing words like dotard (old and senile) to describe Trump a man of tremendously limited English vocabulary
(UNITED NATIONS) — North Korean leader Kim Jong Un called President Donald Trump "deranged" and said in a statement carried by the state news agency that he will "pay dearly" for his threats.
Kim said that Trump is "unfit to hold the prerogative of supreme command of a country." He also described the president as "a rogue and a gangster fond of playing with fire."
"I will make the man holding the prerogative of the supreme command in the U.S. pay dearly for his speech calling for totally destroying the DPRK," said the statement carried by North's official Korean Central News Agency in a dispatch issued from Pyongyang on Friday morning.
DPRK is the abbreviation of the communist country's official name, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.
The statement responded to Trump's combative speech at the U.N. General Assembly on Tuesday where he mocked Kim as a "Rocket Man" on a "suicide mission," and said that if "forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea."
Kim characterized Trump's speech to the world body as "mentally deranged behavior."
He said Trump's remarks "have convinced me, rather than frightening or stopping me, that the path I chose is correct and that it is the one I have to follow to the last."
Kim said he is "thinking hard" about his response and that Trump "will face results beyond his expectation."
It is unusual for the North Korean leader to issue such a statement in his own name.
It will further escalate the war of words between the adversaries as the North moves closer to perfecting a nuclear-tipped missile that could strike America.
In recent months, the North has launched a pair of intercontinental missiles believed capable of striking the continental United States and another pair that soared over Japanese territory.
Earlier this month, North Korea conducted its most powerful nuclear test to date drawing stiffer U.N. sanctions
