KCNA Blasts US Human Rights Abuses

KCNA Blasts US Human Rights Abuses

Pyongyang, October 5 (KCNA) -- Amnesty International recently published a report bitterly denouncing the U.S. forces for torturing and insulting Iraqi prisoners.

According to the report, the U.S. forces stationed in Iraq put at least 30,000 prisoners to beating and mental torture without trials. They handed them to the Iraqi side as they were, when pulling back from the country.

In face of criticism the U.S. forces side claimed that they questioned prisoners in keeping with international law and handed them to the Iraqi side, strictly observing the law. But a gimlet in a bulging bag is bound to protrude.

Hideous are the human rights abuses being committed by the U.S. against other countries and nations under the signboard of "anti-terrorism" to say nothing of countless human rights abuses perpetrated in its mainland.

The U.S. is committing ceaseless human rights abuses in different parts of the world including Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Japan and south Korea.

The U.S. forces made indiscriminate air raids against peaceable inhabitants of Afghanistan last year, killing at least 100 innocent people in a single air raid.

According to a recent disclosure, 12 GIs dispatched to Kandahar of Afghanistan brutally killed guiltless peaceable Afghans in 2009 and were reported to have kept bones of fingers, heads, feet and teeth of the slain people as "souvenirs."

These monstrous crimes remind one of the American cannibals who massacred Indians and kept their head skins as "souvenirs."

The number of the civilians killed in Afghanistan this year reached more than 1,300 and many of them were killed in the indiscriminate assaults made by the U.S. forces led-allied forces.

Some days ago, drones of U.S. forces mounted a missile attack on the area of Northern Waziristan of Pakistan, killing 12 innocent inhabitants and wounding 5 others.

The inhuman treatment and cruel tortures committed by GIs against prisoners in detention camps and prisons in different countries and regions of the world on charges of "involvement in terrorism" are recorded as international human rights abuses.

The human rights abuses committed by the U.S. forces against prisoners in the Abu Ghraib Prison in Iraq and the prison of the Guantanamo U.S. naval base are well known to the world as monstrous crimes that make even animals blush.

As disclosed and denounced in international arena such as the 64th UN General Assembly held in 2009, the U.S. put prisoners to such cruel tortures baffling human description as covering their faces with cloth and pouring water on it a little by a little to cause them the same pain as drowning in prisons in Iraq and other countries.

This information is just a tip of iceberg of the human rights abuses committed by the U.S. in wanton violation of sovereignty of other countries and nations.

It is quite ridiculous for the U.S. to take issue with human rights records of other countries and regions while behaving as if it were an "international human rights judge."

The U.S., the world's worst human rights abuser, would be well advised to mind its own business before talking about others' "human rights issues".
