U.S. Frantic Arms Buildup under Fire
Pyongyang, June 14 (KCNA) -- U.S. arms buildup is now being stepped up in real earnest in Northeast Asia, says Rodong Sinmun in a by-lined commentary.
Citing facts to prove this, the commentary goes on:
The U.S. imperialists' escalation of arms buildup in this region lays bare their extreme ambition for hegemony.
The U.S. is attaching particular importance to Northeast Asia in carrying out its strategy for aggression against Asia and its scenario for world domination and seeks an unchallenged edge in this region.
It is in pursuance of its scenario for hegemony that it is busy massively reinforcing and deploying modern arms and equipment in Northeast Asia under the disguise of preserving "security" and "keeping the command of air and giving spurs to the development of fighters of new generation.
The U.S. loudmouthed "security" is, in essence, a call for beefing up its forces and a doctrine of aggression.
It is the U.S. strategic calculation that it can realize its ambition to dominate the Asia-Pacific region and, furthermore, put the world under its domination only when Northeast Asia is put under its control by force of arms.
There has existed in Northeast Asia since the period of the Cold War a structure of confrontation between the reactionary forces led by the U.S. and China, Russia and other countries. Ever since the outset of the new century the U.S. has stepped up the establishment of the triangular military alliance involving the U.S., Japan and south Korea and forward-deployed modern arms and equipment in Northeast Asia, creating the danger of a new Cold War and arms race in this region.
Countries including China and Russia are following with high vigilance its arms buildup in Northeast Asia and taking steps to bolster the military capability to cope with the possible situation in the future.
Its reckless military actions only result in seriously disturbing peace and stability and increasing the danger of a war in the above-said region.
