KCNA Commentary Censures U.S. Power Politics

Pyongyang, March 1 (KCNA) -- Shortly ago, U.S. Secretary of State Blinken stated that "if you're not at the table in the international system, you're going to be on the menu" at the Munich Security Conference (MSC), causing international sensation.

This Yankee slang means that if you have the strength, you devour others at the table; if you lack strength, you become the prey on the menu. The point is that the international order pursued by the U.S. is grounded in the law of the jungle, "the logic of power".

It's pretty regrettable that the chief diplomat of a "superpower" let out such shameful, nasty remarks at the venue of the international conference dealing with global security issues.

However, it is "helpful" that his bullshit once again made the world keenly realize that the "rules-based international order" trumpeted by the U.S. is a "jungle law" where the strong prey on the weak.

Commenting on this, the Russian foreign minister said that "the U.S. is coercing other countries into sharing its 'international system table', or else they will be on the 'menu'". The Chinese newspaper Global Times reported that "Washington's current official diplomatic rhetoric emphasizes the so-called 'rules-based international order,' but it is all used as tools to demand, restrain, and accuse others, or to cover up U.S. own hegemonic intentions".

As recognized by public at home and abroad, it is the U.S. that cannot survive without preying on the weak, in view of its origination and existence mode.

Built on the sea of blood of Indians, the U.S. staged over 114 big and small wars of aggression and more than 8 900 military interference actions for over 130 years until World War I, and expanded its territory by over ten times by annexing and subordinating other countries and nations.

After World War II, the U.S. has grown corpulent through many wars and military interference actions in the DPRK, Vietnam, Iraq, Syria and other parts of the world and maintained its privileged position.

Even in the present century when the unipolar world has been collapsing and a new, multi-polarized international order is being established, the U.S. is persistently pursuing its hegemonic and aggressive mode of existence and foreign policy, being obsessed with "overconfidence in its own strength", and is constantly breaking the security and stability of the world.

The present Middle East situation which has no sign of solution and goes bad to worse can be explained only by the logic of the animal instinct of the U.S.

The New York Times in an article titled "Understanding the Middle East through the Animal Kingdom" likened the U.S. going to become the "king of the Middle East jungle" to a lion and the Middle East countries to a "parasitoid wasp" or "caterpillars", and stressed the need for the U.S. to burn the whole jungle to kill the parasitoid wasp.

Hence, clearly proved are the true colors of the U.S. sacrificing the Middle East countries and the whole region for its ambition for domination.

In a nutshell, the U.S. is devouring others at the table, some countries and nations in the Middle East including Palestine are on the menu as the "fish and meat" and Israel is "skillfully cooking" to suit the taste of the U.S.

The outlook on the world based on the American-style jungle law and hegemonic foreign policy of the U.S. justifying aggression and war for existence can never be tolerated in the present era of human civilization.

The U.S. should no longer be allowed to devour the world at the table. -0-
