The Institute for American Studies of the DPRK Foreign Ministry released a white paper on Tuesday, detailing the extensive atrocities and economic damages inflicted by the United States on North Korea since the Korean War ceasefire over 70 years ago. The document underscores the scale, persistence, and viciousness of these actions, revealing a determined resolve among the North Korean people to seek retribution.

According to the white paper, the U.S. caused unprecedented human losses in North Korea, brutally killing numerous peaceful civilians. Official data cited in the report indicates that the U.S. massacres resulted in 5,060,770 victims, including 1,247,870 deaths, 911,790 abductions, and 391,740 missing persons. Considering the victims' potential earnings and compensation interests, the calculated damages are estimated at over $26 trillion.

The U.S. is held accountable as a war criminal state by the DPRK government and people for these crimes, which are deemed unforgivable under international law and human morality. The white paper further discloses that the U.S. inflicted catastrophic material and economic damage on North Korea, exceeding the devastation of World War II. The property damage during the war alone is estimated at over $16 billion.

Post-war actions by the U.S., including the systematic infiltration of terrorists and saboteurs into North Korea, have caused additional property damage of $21.266 million. The economic damage due to U.S. sanctions and blockades from 1945 to 2017 is estimated at more than $29 trillion, increasing daily.

The white paper also highlights the indelible wounds left on the Korean people due to the U.S.'s nuclear threat and blackmail. The U.S. declared its intent to use atomic bombs during the Korean War, following its use in Japan, killing hundreds of thousands of innocent people. This spawned a nuclear issue on the Korean peninsula, with the U.S. escalating its nuclear threat over the decades through various military exercises aimed at North Korea.

The document details the ongoing U.S. military drills, such as Ulji Freedom Shield, which aim to conduct a nuclear war targeting North Korea. These actions, under the new "operational plan 2022," reveal the U.S.'s schemes for a preemptive strike on North Korea's nuclear facilities and military bases.

The DPRK's white paper emphasizes the uncompensated mental damage suffered by the Korean people due to the U.S.'s ever-escalating nuclear threat. It concludes with a powerful statement reflecting the North Korean people's desire for retribution: "Blood for blood!" This norm represents the DPRK's unwavering resolve to seek irreconcilable compensation for their losses and to administer retaliatory punishment against the U.S.
