China Accuses the U.S., Japan, and South Korea of Defaming North Korea

On December 24, 2010, Huanqiu republished an article from China Youth Daily (Ed. note: the original article cannot be found on China Youth Daily) titled “Targeting the PLA: the U.S. Army Expands in the West Pacific Areas with a Combination of Air and Sea Combat Forces.”

The article states that talk of a nuclear confrontation on the Korean Peninsula is no longer alarming. The United States, Japan, and South Korea are eager to issue new sanctions against North Korea. “Undoubtedly, the scheme is to ruin the DPRK’s reputation in the world, so as to call for the power of the whole world, in the same way that Saddam Hussein was treated, in the name of justice, to force North Korea into submission.”

“However, the DPRK is not Iraq. This scheme of the United States, Japan, and South Korea will actually be very difficult to carry out.”
