U.S. Arms Expansion Policy Blasted--Rodong Sinmun (KCNA)

U.S. Arms Expansion Policy Blasted--Rodong Sinmun

Pyongyang, January 29 (KCNA) -- The total amount of the U.S. defense budget for fiscal year 2011 is larger than that of the military expenditure of all other countries of the world. It is hardly understandable that the U.S. military expenditure is increasing at fast speed, in view of the present changed international environment. Rodong Sinmun Saturday said this in a bylined article.

This arms expansion is aimed to continue to intensify military intervention and aggression against other countries, the article noted, and went on:

The U.S. moves for arms expansion is sparking off a new arms race and plunging the world economy into chaos.

Other big powers are steadily increasing their military expenditure following the U.S. suit.

The Asia-Pacific region is the area of the fiercest arms race in the world.
Several countries are allotting big share of their state budgets to the defense field in fear of their state security being threatened.

Intensified arms race is increasing as much the danger of war.

The DPRK and Iran have actually become targets of next attack by the U.S. It is massively deploying its forces in areas around the DPRK and Iran.

The U.S. arms expansion is a criminal act against history and peace. It had better stop it, clearly understanding that its policy for arms expansion will do harm to the world, to say nothing of itself.
