Ahead of the U.S. presidential election, North Korea criticized President Barack Obama's administration for driving the U.S. to the worst crisis in history. The Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) issued a white paper Sunday criticizing Obama's regime for bringing a "great change" to the U.S.
North Korea's leader Kim Jong Un believes the U.S. has faced its worst political and military disadvantages in history under Obama's rule. The strategies set forth by the Obama's administration had "pushed the world strategic structure that was already posing threat to the U.S. into a more unfavorable phase," the KCNA paper said.
The paper slammed Obama's plans for "building a world without nuclear weapons," his Asia-Pacific strategies, the administration's hostile policy toward the DPRK (Democratic People's Republic of Korea, the official name for North Korea) and its strategy for dominating Asia.
"The moves of the Obama regime to stifle the DPRK which surpass the successive regimes have steadily pushed the DPRK to bolster up its nuclear force, making it have access to even H-bomb called 'absolute weapon' on this planet," KCNA reported, citing the white paper. "The U.S. strategy for dominating Asia aroused immediate political and military counteraction from big neighboring powers."
According to North Korea, the U.S. committed the heinous massacres in Afghanistan and other parts of the world under the deceptive signboard of "defending freedom and democracy", "combating terrorism" and "protecting human rights." Pyongyang believes "the U.S., source of all kinds of evils, will certainly be buried."
Meanwhile, on Monday, South Korea's military said it was on high alert as Pyongyang may fire an intermediate-range ballistic missile in time with the U.S. presidential election to be held Tuesday. Concerns over the launch grew as military officials believe Pyongyang may want to send a strong message to the new U.S. president.
"We are closely watching every move by the North Korean military at its Punggye-ri nuclear test site and other possible missile-launching sites. The military is fully prepared to respond to any provocative acts by the North," an official from Seoul's Joint Chiefs of Staff told reporters in a briefing, according to Yonhap news agency.
