Let the Entire Party, the Whole Army and All the People Conduct a Vigorous Forest Restoration Campaign to Cover the Mountains of the Country with Green Woods-KIM JONG UN

In a few days' time we will be greeting the Tree-Planting Day, a meaningful day when the great President
Kim Il Sung kindled the flames of the movement of planting trees.
    Busy as he was leading the building of a new country after national liberation, the great leader climbed Moran Hill on March 2, 1946; seeing the mountains and rivers of the country damaged by Japanese imperialist colonial rule, he unfolded a far-reaching plan to turn all the mountains into thickly wooded places of people's resort by having trees planted in large numbers.
    Forests are precious resources of the country and a wealth to be handed down to posterity. Our country has been called a land of golden tapestry for the mountains thick with forests and the fields covered with beautiful flowers. However, as people have felled trees at random since the days of the Arduous March on the plea of obtaining cereals and firewood and, worse still, as no proper measures have been taken to prevent forest fire, the precious forest resources of the country have decreased to a great extent. As the mountains are sparsely wooded, even a slightly heavy rain in the rainy season causes flooding and landslides and rivers dry up in the dry season; this greatly hinders conducting economic construction and improving people's standard of living. Despite this, our officials have confined themselves to reconstructing roads or buildings damaged by flooding, failing to take measures for eliminating the cause of flood damage by planting a large number of trees on the mountains.
    At present, the forests of the country can be said to have reached a crossroads–whether to perish for ever or to be restored. We can no longer back off from the issue related with the forests. As long as the forests are left as they are, no one can claim that he is a master of the country nor can he speak about patriotism.
    Grieved for the decreasing forests of the country, the great General Kim Jong Il worked out a plan for covering the whole country with trees and flowers, and devoted great efforts until the last days of his life to translating it into reality. I cannot forget what he would say when he saw on the road of Songun-based leadership mountains bare of trees; he said it was also an aftermath of the Arduous March, earnestly instructing that we should plant a large number of trees of good species on the bare mountains so as to turn the misfortune into a blessing and hand down to the coming generations beautiful mountains thick with forests. We can never hand down to the coming generations bare mountains, earth piles.
    It is the unshakable determination and will of our Party to turn all the mountains into thickly-wooded "treasure mountains," into "gold mountains," within the coming ten years true to the intentions of the great President and General.
    The entire Party, the whole army and all the people should conduct a vigorous forest restoration campaign to make the mountains of the country thick with forests.
    Forest restoration is a challenging and complex undertaking of raising young trees, transplanting them and then cultivating them year in, year out in the face of harsh challenges of nature; it is a gigantic nature transformation project to turn all the mountains of the country into "treasure mountains," into "gold mountains." The forest restoration campaign is a war to ameliorate nature.
    What is important in conducting this campaign is to push ahead with forest planting and conservation simultaneously.
    We should bring about a sweeping revolution in forest planting.
    Forest planting should not be done in such a way as planting some trees ceremoniously on tree-planting days or transplanting fully-grown trees, as was done in the past. It should be done in the way of raising young trees in large numbers and enlisting all the people in transplanting and cultivating them.
    For effective forest planting, first of all young trees should be raised and supplied in sufficient numbers.
    Raising young trees is the first process of forest planting; success of the forest restoration campaign depends on how nurseries provide young trees. Nurseries are to a forest restoration campaign what munitions factories are to a war just as one cannot emerge victorious in a battle if he is not provided with ammunitions, so we cannot conduct the forest restoration campaign successfully if nurseries fail to grow young trees in sufficient numbers.
    The Central Nursery and other nurseries should mass-produce various young trees of good species.
    At the time when the country was in a very difficult condition, the General, with a far-sighted plan, had the Central Nursery built as a modernly-equipped producer of young trees, and bequeathed it to us as part of his legacy. The Central Nursery should raise the level of scientification, industrialization and intensification in growing young trees and overfulfil its production plan, thus taking a significant share in the forest restoration campaign.
    The nurseries in provinces should be renovated as well.
    They should be modernly equipped like the Central Nursery. Whatever the amount of investment, we should provide ample conditions for laying out the young tree production bases. Now at the provincial nurseries, greenhouses for raising young trees are not in good shape; they should be renovated. Modern greenhouses are essential to putting young tree production on a scientific, industrial and intensive footing. Each province should build a model greenhouse in conformity with the characteristics of growing young trees and their uses, and generalize it. The provincial nurseries should be provided with diverse material and technical conditions necessary for producing young trees in sufficient numbers.
    Nurseries should obtain seeds of good species, improve the fertility of young tree fields, introduce advanced growing methods in a positive manner and take all possible precautions against damage from blights and insect pests. The officials and employees there, fully aware of the important duty they assume in the forest restoration campaign, should strive to boost production in the same manner as they would display when making bullets and shells for those on the battlefield.
    Trees should be planted with care.
    Otherwise, the precious young trees that have been raised with so much effort will wither away, and forests cannot be restored as early as possible. Every year trees are planted on such occasions as the Period of General Mobilization for Land Administration and the Tree-Planting Month in Spring. But the forests of the country show little signs of amelioration; it is because the survival rate of the transplanted trees is low as a consequence of their careless planting. It is important to plant many trees, and it is all the more important to plant them with care and increase their survival rate.
    A lot of people in several sectors are to be enlisted in tree-planting, so they should be given proper guidance to work according to technical regulations. It is necessary to inform the officials, service personnel, workers, students and other young people thus enlisted, of the specific planting methods, and make exacting demands on them so that they will plant trees according to technical regulations.
    After planting trees, it is important to manure and cultivate them properly.
    Young trees require much effort and care to grow into big ones. Technical regulations should be strictly observed in the processes of growing them such as watering, maturing and removing weeds and shrubs. It is necessary to regularly conduct the work of weeding out ailing and useless trees in time and planting other trees instead. A rigid system should be established whereby organs and enterprises take responsibility for the survival of the trees they have planted.
    It is important in the forest restoration campaign to lay out forests of economic value, forest reserves and scenic forests in a rational way. Afforestation should be done on the principles of planting the right trees in the right soil and in the right season and planting ten after felling one. Mixed forest and agroforestry should be actively introduced, and afforestation should be done by combining transplanting and natural regeneration appropriately to meet actual conditions.
    We should make great efforts to conserve the forests of the country.
    We should push forward this undertaking with a viewpoint that forest conservation precisely means protection of land, ecological environment and the economy. Just as the public health sector takes prophylactic measures to protect people against diseases, so we should conserve the forests on a regular basis to prevent damage to them.
    Random felling of trees in mountains must be prohibited.
    Now some people climb mountains and cut down trees to obtain firewood or timber without permission as they do not care a bit about the country's forests. Unauthorized felling of trees is tantamount to treachery. All the people on this land should treasure and protect even a blade of grass and a tree of their country. They should be encouraged to take part in forest conservation efforts in a manner befitting masters with a lofty sense of civic duty and law observance, so as to eliminate any practice of damaging forests.
    Pest control is important in conserving forests.
    To this end it is essential to intensify preventive observation of insect pests so as to detect their appearance and take measures in good time to preclude them from spreading. A mass-based pest control drive should be conducted from March to May every year. Damage by insect pests should be prevented by various methods such as applying biological and chemical pesticides or protecting and increasing the numbers of their natural enemies.
    Thoroughgoing measures should be taken to prevent damage from forest fire.
    Forest fire reduces to ashes in an instant forest resources created through long, painstaking efforts. The state should establish a system of watching forest fire, raising an alarm and mobilizing people, make necessary material and technical preparations for promptly putting out forest fire once it breaks out, and build fire belts as required by the regulations and maintain them on a regular basis. People may climb mountains in spring and autumn for collecting medicinal herbs or various other purposes; they should be educated to strictly observe the set order. In particular, scrupulous measures should be adopted against forest fire during the seasons when it may break out easily.
    In order to conserve forest resources, we should solve the people's problem of fuel.
    Positive measures should be taken to solve this problem, including creating forests for firewood in every place and increasing the production and supply of coal for the people's living. There are several units which have solved the fuel problem with biogas, fly ash or ultraanthracite. By actively popularizing their experience, we should ensure that all regions solve the fuel problem on any account by their own effort.
    Various sectors should take measures to use a smaller amount of timber so as to lower the degree of reliance on forest.
    We should direct close attention to developing forest science and technology.
    We can also successfully promote forest planting and conservation when we rely on science and technology.
    Forest science and technology institutes should study and solve scientific and technological problems arising in tree breeding and in forest planting and conservation. They should focus on breeding and widely proliferating good species of trees that are of economic value and suitable to the climatic and soil conditions of our country. Along with this, they should conduct scientific research for perfecting the methods of planting and tending trees as suited to the geographical features and actual conditions of our country. They should develop the method of planting trees all the year round. They should also solve the problems arising in creating forests in a prospective way and conserving and maintaining them.
    We should take measures to introduce and widely disseminate the global achievements of the advanced science and technology related to forest planting and conservation. As there are not many good species of trees in our country, we should bring in such trees from foreign countries and widely proliferate them after acclimatizing them. We should grow large numbers of the trees like P. strobes, which the General spoke highly of, and spread them across the country.
    We should be effective in disseminating forest science and technology among officials and working people. As all the people are enlisted in forest planting and conservation, they should know the methods of planting and tending trees of different species. Centres for disseminating science and technology have been laid out in various parts of the country; based on these centres, a brisk drive for disseminating forest science and technology should be waged to keep people abreast of the world trend of development of forest science and technology.
    In order to develop forest science and technology, we should build up the Academy of Forest Science. Some officials are now neglecting the work of building up the academy, claiming that the effort to develop forest science and technology does not pay off in a year or two. They should not do so. We should refurbish the Academy of Forest Science into a world-class academy. And we should build up the forest science institutes in provinces.
    We should tighten supervision and control over forest planting and conservation.
    Since a powerful national forest supervision organ has been organized in accordance with a measure taken by the Party, it should effectively conduct forest supervision and control in a unified way.
    We should intensify legal control over forest planting and conservation. If legal control is weak, violation of law may not be discontinued. The state should tighten legal controls over forest planting and conservation so that negative elements cannot appear. Random felling should be made a serious issue of whatever the unit concerned is and whoever the person concerned is. Units should be properly rewarded or punished according to their deserts with regard to forest planting and conservation. We should build up the ranks of forest rangers and enhance their sense of responsibility and role.
    As forest restoration is a long-term undertaking that is carried on with an eye for ten years hence, we should carry it through to the end with perseverance.
    We cannot achieve success in our effort for forest restoration if we work like a flash in the pan. Officials should cherish deep in their minds the General's aphorism that one should live not merely for today but for tomorrow, and persevere with forest planting and conservation regarding it as their constant task.
    The plan for forest restoration should not remain in figures or charts on a piece of paper. We should turn all the mountains into "gold mountains" covered with thick woods and thus show through reality that Korea does what it is determined to do.
    We should set forest restoration as a major task for the Party, the state and the army and forcefully push ahead with it by enlisting all forces and means.
    Forest restoration is an important political work for implementing the instructions of the President and the General and one of the greatest patriotic undertakings for the development of our country, our nation, and the prosperity of posterity. Because forest restoration is a very important undertaking, the Party ensured that its Central Committee, the DPRK National Defence Commission and the KPA Supreme Headquarters issued a joint resolution calling on the entire Party, the whole army and all the people to turn out in a dynamic forest restoration campaign, and strong headquarters for the campaign were organized.
    The entire Party, the whole army and all the people should be enlisted in the forest restoration campaign.
    Only when the whole country and all the people are involved, can the forest restoration campaign bear fruit. The whole Party, the entire army and all the people should turn out in the campaign as they conducted reconstruction after the war. "Let the entire Party, the whole army and all the people be enlisted in a vigorous forest restoration campaign!"–this is the militant slogan our Party puts forward today.
    The People's Army should take the lead in the campaign to restore forests.
    As in all other undertakings, it should play the vanguard role in this campaign. Political commissars of the army units at all levels should take direct charge of forest planting and conservation and push ahead with them.
    In the campaign the army and people should make concerted efforts to fully display the might of the great army-people unity.
    Mass-based movements should be launched to ensure the campaign a success.
    It is our Party's traditional method of work to propel the revolution and construction by means of mass-based movements. As they launched the Chollima Movement after the war, Party and working people's organizations should conduct vigorously the movement to create Forest of Socialist Patriotism and to win the title of Model County in Afforestation. Youth league organizations, in particular, should wage a movement to create Youth Forest and Children's Union Forest and tend them properly so as to lead all the youth and students to contribute to covering their home villages and mountains with forests.
    Information and motivation work should be launched vigorously to arouse the entire Party, the whole army and all the people in the forest restoration campaign.
    If we kindle all the service personnel and people with patriotism and enlist their spiritual strength through effective information and motivation work, there is nothing in the world we cannot perform. The biggest reserve in every undertaking is the spiritual strength of the masses. We should conduct an energetic information and motivation offensive to give fullest play to the spiritual strength of officials and working people.
    Kim Jong Il's patriotism should be displayed to the full in the forest restoration campaign. In the course of carrying on the campaign people's patriotism can be evaluated. It is said that a large number of trees have been planted annually in recent years, but creating forests is not progressing as it should; this shows that our people have not worked heart and soul, only paying lip service to their patriotism. Patriotism is a lofty spirit of valuing even a tree in the country and devoting one's sweat and sincerity to tending it, and one's patriotic feeling develops while he plants and tends even a tree by himself. All officials, service personnel, working people and youth and students should be encouraged to keep in mind that forest planting and conservation is one of the greatest patriotic undertakings for the future of the motherland, so that they can turn out in the forest restoration campaign with soaring patriotic enthusiasm.
    All sectors and all units should conduct frontline-style information and motivation work to ensure that the whole country brims over with revolutionary ardour and vigour as it did in the days of postwar reconstruction. Party and working people's organizations should conduct intensively and ceaselessly the information and motivation work related with forest restoration. Newspapers, broadcasts and all other means of information and motivation work should be enlisted.
    The forest restoration headquarters should improve their role. Whether or not the forest restoration campaign is carried on successfully in line with the Party's intention depends largely on their role. They should work out long-term, stage-by-stage and yearly plans properly, and make scrupulous arrangements and exercise effective command to carry out the plans. No deviations should be revealed during the campaign.
    Officials should stand in the vanguard of the forest restoration campaign. They should not just check statistics hanging around in their offices, but go out to the pulsating fields like the commanding officers of the People's Army and lead the masses in the campaign, shouting the order, "Forward after me!"
    As we have achieved one victory after another in the confrontation with the hostile forces including the US imperialists not firing a single shot, we should achieve a brilliant victory without fail in the forest restoration campaign to eliminate the aftermath of the Arduous March and hand down lasting wealth to posterity.
    I believe that our officials, service personnel, working people and youth and students, who have always been faithful to the calling of the Party, will turn out as one in the forest restoration campaign, a noble patriotic cause, in hearty response to the call of the Party Central Committee. -0-

Post title DPRK to Fight Merciless Sacred War against U.S.: Rodong Sinmun

    Pyongyang, February 27 (KCNA) -- The DPRK will wage a merciless sacred war against the U.S. now that the latter has chosen confrontation, says Rodong Sinmun Friday in an article.
    As the Obama group is escalating its smear campaign against the DPRK and ratcheting up harsh sanctions and pressure upon it and the group's war maneuvers against it are gaining in scope and strength, the army and people of the DPRK will intensify their counteraction of justice without limit, the article notes, and goes on:
    The U.S. imperialists' hostile actions against the DPRK have reached an extreme phase.
    The successive administrations of the U.S. have thrown stumbling blocks in the way of peacefully settling the issue of the Korean peninsula. The U.S. has pursued only a scenario to stifle the DPRK by force. It is busy whetting a sword of aggression, watching for a chance to swallow up the DPRK.
    Much upset by the fact that there may be a sign of detente on the Korean peninsula thanks to the DPRK's initiative and efforts to achieve peace this year, the U.S. is set to stage again Key Resolve and Foal Eagle joint military exercises.
    The army of the DPRK has never pardoned the enemies trying to hurt its dignity and social system.
    Nuclear weapons are not a monopoly of the U.S.
    The U.S. is seriously mistaken if it thinks its mainland is safe. -0-

Kim Jong Un Publishes Work Calling for Turning Mountains of Country into Thick Woodland

Pyongyang, February 27 (KCNA) -- Marshal Kim Jong Un published work "Let Entire Party and Whole Army and All People Conduct a Vigorous Forest Restoration Campaign to Cover Mountains of Country with Woods" on Feb. 26.
    Saying the tree-planting day is just a few days off, Kim Jong Un recalled that President Kim Il Sung climbed Moran Hill on March 2, 1946 and unrolled a far-reaching plan to turn all the mountains into people's paradise in thick verdure by planting lots of trees.
    Leader Kim Jong Il advanced a plan to turn the whole country into thick woodland and greenery and worked heart and soul for it till the last moments of his life, Kim Jong Un said.
    Noting that bare mountains and earth-covered ones should never be handed to posterity, he stressed it is the firm determination and will of the Workers' Party of Korea to turn all the mountains of the country into mountains of treasure and gold clad in thick verdure in a decade to come, true to the intentions of Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il.
    Calling on the entire party and army and all the people to turn the mountains of the country into thick woodland through a vigorous campaign to restore forests, he specified tasks and ways for doing so.
    The campaign to restore forests is like a war with nature, he noted, underscoring the need to simultaneously push forward the work for creating forests and the work for conserving them.
    He said the work for creating forests should not be done in such a way as planting a few trees or transplanting overgrown trees in a ceremonial manner on the tree-planting day as what happened in the past but all people should turn out as one to plant trees and tend them after raising lots of saplings.
    The Central Tree Nursery and other tree nurseries should massively produce a variety of tree saplings of good species and it is necessary to plant trees qualitatively, he noted, and went on:
    As many people in various fields are mobilized for tree-planting, it is important to provide proper guidance to make sure that technical regulations are observed in planting trees.
    There should be a strict system whereby trees are taken care of in a responsible manner by organs, enterprises and units which planted them.
    Economic forests, forest reserves and scenic woods should be arranged in a rational way while conducting the campaign to restore forests.
    The work for protecting forests should be pushed forward from the standpoint that protection of forests precisely means the protection of land, ecological environment and economy.
    In order to protect forest resources, it is necessary to take positive measures to settle the fuel issue including the ones of creating firewood forests in regions and increasing coal production and supply for residents.
    Forest scientific research institutions should study and settle the scientific and technological issues arising in raising trees and creating and conserving forests.
    It is imperative to take steps for introducing the world's advanced science and technology on creation and protection of forests and widely disseminating them.
    The Academy of Forestry should be built up into the world's first-class academy. At the same time, forest science institutes in provinces should be built up well.
    The work for restoring forests should be tenaciously pushed forward as it is a long-term work which should be done, foreseeing ten years.
    Kim Jong Un said that the forest restoration campaign is an important political work to carry out the behests of Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il and the greatest patriotic work for the development of the country and the prosperity of the generations to come.
    He went on:
    "Let the entire Party, whole army and all the people be enlisted in a vigorous forest restoration campaign!" This is the militant slogan put up by the WPK at present.
    The Korean People's Army should take the lead in the forest restoration campaign and the army-people coordinated operation and the mass movement should be conducted positively.
    He stressed the need to dynamically conduct information service and agitation to arouse the entire party and army and all the people to the forest restoration campaign, increase the role of the headquarters of the campaign and for the officials to take the lead in the campaign.
    He expressed belief that officials, service personnel, working people and school youth and children would turn out as one in the forest restoration campaign, the noble patriotic cause, in hearty response to the appeal of the Party Central Committee. -0-

KCNA Commentary Blasts Japanese Dietman's Reckless Remarks over Central Hall of Chongryon

Pyongyang, February 26 (KCNA) -- Maehara, member of the House of Representatives from the Japan Democratic Party, at the House Budget Committee on Feb. 20 picked up the issue of the Central Hall of the General Association of Korean Residents in Japan (Chongryon) and charged it with "evasion of law".
    This was an intolerable and despicable act to stop Chongryon from using the hall by misleading the public opinion in Japan as it was revelation of an ulterior intention to prevent the long controversial issue from being smoothly solved.
    Maehara let loose such string of invectives at a time when everyone admits that the legal procedures and steps on the issue of the hall by Chongryon is not a breach of law. This makes one cast doubt about whether he has elementary thinking faculty as a human being, to say nothing of qualifications as a politician.
    He claims to have graduated from the law faculty of Kyoto University and held the post of foreign minister during the Democratic Party rule. But he found fault with the hall though it poses no problem from the legal point of view. This only proves that he is a political illiterate devoid of elementary international common sense and concept of law.
    The advance sale of the hall and its lease are a universal transaction pursuant to procedures recognized by law and, therefore, everything is done in a legitimate manner free from any "violation and evasion of law".
    Not only the legal circle but the political and media circles of Japan admit this.
    It is free for anyone to sell or lend a real estate which one purchased through auction. On the contrary, it is illegal to interfere in it without any justifiable reason.
    There were precedents in which purchaser of a real estate lent it to the debtor, its original owner, and such a precedent still exists at present.
    What merits a serious attention is that Maehara groundlessly attributed the bankruptcy of the Credit Association of the Korean Bank to the "remittance of funds to North Korea" and "the organized use by Chongryon of the DPRK", while crying out for tightening watch and investigation into it and demanding relevant data.
    This is an absolutely intolerable malignant accusation against the DPRK and Chongryon.
    As known, the bankruptcy of the Bank was caused because it failed to set up proper management strategy to cope with the bubble economy just as was the case with lots of banks and credit associations that went bankrupt in Japan.
    The then Prime Minister Koizumi on Dec. 2001 made it clear in a "reply to questions regarding the issue of Korean Bank operation fund" that "the government has not admitted the flow of fund to the North Korean authorities from the Credit Association of the Korean Bank and that there has not been information about a grant of fund."
    Even a "report by a person in charge of financial management" at the time of bankruptcy of the Bank mentioned insufficient counteraction and heavy loans but not the admittance of "organized use" when referring to the major causes of the bankruptcy.
    However, Maehara claimed that the "Resolution and Collection Corporation and the reserve insurance organization could seize lease fee by exercising all mandates and Chongryon should not be allowed to continue to use the Central Hall", a hysteric frenzy of a man steeped in bad blood towards the DPRK and Chongryon to the marrow of his bones.
    Such a despicable aim to physically deprive Chongryon, an organization defending the democratic national rights of Koreans in Japan, of the base for its activities and to stamp out the legitimate activities of Chongryon and Koreans in Japan can never be achieved.
    Maehara's reckless remarks reflect his foolish attempt to fuel atmosphere of bitterness towards the DPRK and Chongryon in the Japanese society, chill the climate of the DPRK-Japan inter-governmental talks and improve his clout as a politician from an opposition party.
    By nature, he is an imbecile political philistine bereft of any political idea and ability and is like a political migratory bird who stoops to any infamy to gain his popularity in the political camp.
    As for the issue of improving the relations between the DPRK and Japan, he blustered that "no chance should be given to the former."
    He is a henchman and war servant for the U.S. steeped in sycophancy toward the U.S. While extolling the U.S. as a "guardian of peace" and "stability" in the Asia-Pacific, he said the U.S. sub-critical nuclear test was not in contravention of the "Prague address" made by the U.S. chief executive and voiced "understanding of it".
    He was also forced to step down as foreign minister as he violated the laws and regulations on political funds which ban the acceptance of political fund from foreigners.
    Such a human reject questioned the DPRK-Japan inter-governmental talks while raising the Central Hall issue and made remarks chilling the atmosphere of the talks, a vivid manifestation of his sinister political purpose to check the advance of the DPRK-Japan relations.
    Explicitly speaking, Chongryon is a genuine overseas Koreans' organization active for defending and realizing the democratic national rights of Koreans in Japan, and the Central Hall of Chongryon is an inviolable base for its activities as it plays the role of foreign mission in the absence of diplomatic relations between the DPRK and Japan.
    Maehara had better face up to the trend of the times and stop such folly as hurting his image. -0-

Resolution on US germ warfare and CIA torture adopted by the UK KFA Meeting 26 February

This meeting has been called to expose the phony human rights campaign of US imperialism against the Democratic People’s Republic (DPRK) and to expose the real “human rights violator “the US itself so it may be indicted before the court of history for its crimes against humanity. The
“Human rights “campaign against the DPRK it is not just hypocritical But it also serves as a smokescreen to divert attention away from real Human rights  abuses  in the USA.
                       These are far numerous to list as the  USA is known for
Invading  many countries and also for racial discrimination and for phone tapping and electronic eavesdropping . It is rightly known as a “land barren of human rights “ . However the most serious human rights abuses  committed by the US were the use of germ warfare during the Korean war against the DPRK and the torture carried out by the CIA in the years  2001-2006 .
The US imperialists waged biological warfare in Korea in the 1950-1953 in violation of the Geneva Protocol. The use of biological weapons was confirmed by an International Scientific Commission which included the respected British scientist Professor Joseph Needham and also by confessions of captured US personnel . In carrying out biological warfare against the Korean people the US imperialists utilised the services of Japanese war criminal Shiro Ishii of the notorious Unit 731.

During the  Korean war the US carried out over 800 germ warfare sorties . The death toll from the US germ warfare ran into thousands . This was a barbaric crime that was much worse than those committed by Hitler in the second world. We believe it is high time for the US to stop covering this crime and  come clean finally about it.

Recently, the US senate issued a report opening to the world torture committed by the CIA over a long period . Of course the CIA had long been infamous for assassination, terrorism, dirty tricks and  interference . It earned notoriety as the shock brigade of US imperialism , Its role was exposed in the 1970s by a defector from the CIA Philip Agee. However under  the guise of the so-called “war on terror “  the CIA became a major human rights violator committing torture and detaining suspects without  trial.
 The CIA operated a network of secret prisons around the world  and indulging kidnapping and  “rendition “ as part of its Detention and Interrogation Programme and carried out torture of detainees. The programme authorized CIA officers to use extreme interrogation techniques, including sleep deprivation, water boarding , painful stress positions, dietary manipulation, walling, 'rectal rehydration' or rectal feeding, etc. These techniques were most barbaric.

Thus the US stands condemned and guilty for crimes against humanity. We demand that the UN Committee on Human Rights and other international bodies organise a full and proper investigation into these crimes committed by the US. The UN must act in a fair and impartial way and must not be afraid of the US.
