An indictment of the US for human rights abuses by the Korean Central New Agency

KCNA Accuses U.S. of Human Rights Abuses

Pyongyang, May 23 (KCNA) -- The KCNA Tuesday issued an indictment accusing the U.S. of its unethical human rights abuses.

The indictment said:

The political rights of the majority of the toiling masses are being wantonly violated by money and power in the U.S. styling itself "Heaven of liberty and democracy".

An election in the U.S. can be described as a contest in wasting money.

The midterm election held in November 2010 was reported to be the most expensive election in the U.S. history as 3.98 billion U.S. dollars was squandered for it.

The presidential election to be held this year is also expected to be a competition in money. U.S. President Obama, candidate from the Democratic Party, raised 45 million dollars in February and 53 million dollars in March. The fund for reelection of Obama is estimated to be 120. 01 million dollars.

Freedom of speech, secrecy of correspondence, inviolability of human body and other civic rights are openly violated under the pretence of "national security" in the U.S.

The U.S. Senate adopted an act on protecting cyber space as national property on June 24, 2010. In February last year BBC recalled that the U.S. frequently cried out for ensuring freedom of internet, labeling those countries taking measures to control internet "closed society". It accused the U.S. of contemplating making a legitimate framework to control internet in its mainland.

U.S. airports introduce full-body scanners for travelers under the pretext of security.

The U.S. authorities' brutal suppression of participants in Occupy Wall Street demonstrations across the U.S. last year vividly showed the reality of the U.S., tundra of human rights.

The police authorities responsible for protecting rights of citizens of the U.S. are earning an ill fame as main culprits of violence and human rights abuses.

U.S. prisons have turned into medieval torture chambers and hells on earth.

The rights to food, clothing and housing, the most elementary human rights, are mercilessly suppressed in the American society where money is everything and the jungle law governs.

According to a survey of the U.S. Census Bureau, the number of the people living under poverty line across the country reached 49.1 million as of the end of 2011. The number of homeless people who cannot afford to live in their own houses because of high housing rent reached 636 000 last year. It is said that more than 51 000 people sleep under the open sky every day in Los Angeles City, California, known as "a city of homeless people".

The number of the unemployed in April this year stood at 12.5 million owing to the ever-deepening economic crisis. Among them 5.1 million people are the long-term unemployed.

According to a report released by the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation on Sept. 19, 2011, more than one million crimes of violence were committed in the U.S. in 2010.

"Equality for all" much touted by the U.S. is nothing but a deceptive slogan and all forms of discrimination getting pronounced in the U.S. wantonly with each passing day mercilessly trample down upon the equality of people.

The consequences of deeply rooted racial discrimination are vividly manifested in all fabrics of social life.

Women and children in the U.S. are withering in the mire of social evils.

Ceaseless violence against women fully betrays the fin de siecle tendency in the barbarous American society.

The number of the poor children across the country is more than 15 million.

The number of those children subject to violence every year is over three million, counting only those formally registered.

The U.S. human rights abuses spilled over to different parts of the world, imposing immeasurable misfortunes and sufferings upon other countries and nations.

The U.S.-led "anti-terror war" that has lasted for more than a decade is unprecedented state-sponsored terrorism and hideous human rights abuse.

This is clearly proved by the "anti-terror war" now engulfing Pakistan in the wake of Afghanistan and Iraq. This has become a war of genocide as it takes the lives of guiltless civilians.

The U.S. is maltreating and torturing prisoners after setting up secret prisons abroad. This is the wanton violation of the international laws on human rights and humanitarianism.

The U.S. has cruelly trampled down upon the freedom of religion and faith of other nations.

It ceaselessly resorts to the moves to bring down governments of other countries and terrorism against democratic figures of various countries. They constitute a wanton violation of national rights and human rights abuses.

The U.S. organized more than 40 terrorist groups specializing in subversive acts and murder in a bid to stifle the Cuban revolution and financially backed them.

For more than a century, the U.S. hatched plots to overthrow governments of many countries including Nicaragua, Philippines, Puerto Rico, Honduras, Guatemala, Chile, Grenada, Panama, Afghanistan and Iraq to realize its ambition for domination.

In the period from 1961 to 1976, it conducted at least 900 assassination and terror operations against world famous politicians and foreign government officials.

The U.S. is the worst rogue state in terms of human rights abuses as it has perpetrated the most serious human rights abuses at home and abroad.

This being a hard reality, the U.S. is apt to kick up human rights rackets in the international arena and politicize human rights issues, build up public opinions over them and internationalize those issues in a bid to use them as a lever for pressurizing other countries. This is like "the guilty party filing the suit first".

It is none other than the U.S. which should be brought to the world human rights court. -0-
