From the KCNA Commentary U.S. Mocks at Scientific and Technological Achievements of Mankind:

Pyongyang, May 24 (KCNA) -- The U.S. is abusing internet as a means for realizing its ambition for world domination, sparking off uproar of the world community.

Russian President Putin recently termed internet as a project of the CIA and a product of U.S. overseas intelligence activities.

Today world economy and social activities are becoming increasingly dependent on internet. The number of internet users worldwide has already surpassed 1.5 billion in 2009.

As internet service has spread worldwide, the U.S. is raking up the greatest profits through internet in name and reality by using it as a means for putting the world under its control.

It is the U.S. calculation that if it operates internet, it can destabilize those countries courting its displeasure, put other counties under its political, economic and military control and realize its ambition for world domination with ease.

By using technology for disseminating modern information with internet as a core means, it is providing conditions for conducting ideological and cultural poisoning against governments of various countries and overthrowing them.

In an article contributed to magazine "U.S. diplomatic policy" in January, 2010, a U.S. senator said that the U.S. State Department should use new network technology for "the movement for expanding freedom" worldwide promoted by the U.S. and launch the so-called "campaign for greeting a new day." According to the act adopted by U.S. Congress in July, 2009, 30 million U.S. dollars were allotted to Persian broadcasting programs against Iran of Radio Free Europe and VOA and 20 million dollars allocated as funds for electronic education, exchange and report related to Iran in order to help Iranians escape internet censorship.

The U.S. orchestrated the Tunisian case in which the government was toppled through the spread of animation files about social conflict in December of 2010 through internet and great disturbances in North Africa and Mideast in its wake. These were typical examples of how Washington used internet as a new war means.

What happened in Ukraine is a product of the operation carefully worked out by the U.S. for a long period.

Special institutions of the U.S. have pushed forward a scenario for a coup in Ukraine through NGO organizations and internet since early in the 1990s for the purpose of carrying out the plan of NATO to expand to the east.

This is evidenced by the fact that the U.S. State Department made public that it earmarked 5 billion dollars for "democracy" in Ukraine.

A lot of evidence proves that the control and operation of internet have already become a basic means and a major way of dealing politically-motivated blows at various states of the world targeted by Washington and seeking the government overthrow.

Taking advantage of its special position in the management of internet, the U.S. considers cyber space as its fifth sphere after sky, ground, seas and outer space and is seeking an edge in it. According to data disclosed, a U.S. spy organ has conducted the operation of hacking computer networks by spreading malignant codes among news agency and computer networks of various countries with an investment of 652 million U.S. dollars.

The U.S. move to isolate and stifle the DPRK in various fields after designating it as a target of cyber attack is part of Washington's scenario.



The CIA has long carried out cyber attacks, providing every year more than 20 million U.S. dollars to the anti-DPRK plot-breeding bodies in south Korea including "the Citizens Alliance for Human Rights in North Korea" "Network for Democracy in North Korea" and "Duri Hana" by instigating "the National Foundation for Democracy" under the mask of a non-governmental body.

The U.S. should discard its anachronistic daydream.

The latest science and technology achieved by humankind is by no means a monopoly of the U.S.
