The New York Times published report from the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) that alleges North Korea of having “secret” bases and deceiving the peace-lovers of the world is a COMPLETE LIE and proves the US media and “think tanks” are PUSHING FOR WAR, while the South and North Korea are working for peace not only for the millions of their people, but for Asia as a whole.

The war propaganda article of the New York Times articles has been:

“UNANIMOUSLY CONDEMNED” by Asia specialists, saying…”the NY Times-CSIS article is “misleading, incomplete, and dangerous as it could support a case for what would be a disastrous war.”

Short history of recent developments that prove the New York Times article is baseless and malicious:

The Trump and Kim Peace Summit last June only produced a broad statement of four realistic goals:

  1. The United States and the DPRK commit to establish new U.S.–DPRK relations in accordance with the desire of the peoples of the two countries for peace and prosperity.
  2. The United States and the DPRK will join their efforts to build a lasting and stable peace regime on the Korean Peninsula.
  3. Reaffirming the April 27, 2018 Panmunjom Declaration, the DPRK commits to work toward complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.
  4. The United States and the DPRK commit to recovering POW/MIA remains, including the immediate repatriation of those already identified.

In the meantime, the understanding between the two countries is a “ freeze for freeze —a freeze in missile testing by North Korea for a freeze in U.S.-South Korean military drills. There was no agreement on the cessation of nuclear weapons development.

If any actor is to blame for violating the current deal, it is the United States, which conducted military drills with South Korea earlier even after the US-DPRK Agreement

Even South Korea says there is “NOTHING NEW” in the New York Times report, also pointing out that North Korea never pledged a promise to abandon all missile sites.

The US has known about the sites for decades.  After the US-DPRK meeting, Trump asserted that the North Korean nuclear arsenal was no longer a “threat,” he never claimed that all the arms were eliminated.

The US has gotten more from North Korea since the US-North Korea Peace Negotiations. To pursue peace and development, North Korea, as promised, had already

  1. Returned the remains of 55 US soldiers.

  2. Suspended missile launches and had already shut down a major nuclear test site.

In return, North Korea got…

  1. Continued US military activities in the Korean peninsula, a clear violation of the agreement.
  2. US preventing South and North Korea to build a train to connect the two countries and help North Korea develop economically, as the US also agreed to do.

Why is the New York Times and Center Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) reporting on news based on manufactured and outdated data that can spiral into a dangerous war?
