Rodong Sinmun on Failure of U.S. "Anti-Terrorism War" Strategy
Pyongyang, December 30 (KCNA) -- The U.S. "anti-terrorism war" strategy for aggression faces failure and collapse this year, says Rodong Sinmun Thursday in a bylined article.
The U.S. is trying to gain the hegemony over the world by containing its rivals and the anti-imperialist and independent countries through its criminal "anti-terrorism war" strategy for impure purposes, but this is just a pipedream, the article says, and goes on:
It is already well-known that the U.S. poured an enormous amount of money on the wars against Afghanistan and Iraq in the past. This squandering put the U.S. at a serious political and economic crisis and its predominant position decreased as never before. This year the U.S. fell into a quagmire.
Just like the failed Iraq-"pacification" strategy, its Afghanistan-"pacification" strategy has become impossible to be carried out. This year witnessed the biggest death toll of U.S. troops in Afghanistan since the start of the war.
This year the U.S. moved the main theatre of its "anti-terrorism" war from Iraq to Afghanistan and reinforced its troops to intensify the military operation. But such efforts resulted in only great loss. Many Americans protest against their government, regarding the Afghanistan war as an unnecessary war which is not worth fighting.
Those countries drawn into the "anti-terrorism war" strategy of the U.S. are trying to withdraw from it and the movement against this strategy is getting hotter on a global scale. This clearly shows that the strategy of the U.S. is in trouble.
The criminal "anti-terrorism war" strategy on the verge of bankruptcy augurs the downfall of the U.S.
