Rodong Sinmun Terms Japan's Moves to Emerge Military Giant Grave

Pyongyang, February 20 (KCNA) -- The Japanese defense minister was reported recently to have begged his U.S. counterpart to render cooperation in Japan's efforts to deploy ultramodern stealth fighter F-35 in Japan as planned.

Rodong Sinmun Monday observes in a bylined commentary:

The ulterior intention of Japan is to realize its wild ambition to emerge a military giant and launch overseas expansion at any cost with the help of its American master.

Japan has worked hard overtly and covertly to realize its sinister scenario for legalizing the SDF's overseas military operation, etc. under the pretext of "cooperation with the U.S."

The SDF is now set to expand its operational sphere to vast areas of the Asia-Pacific region and acquire the capability of undertaking any combat action, single-handed.

The Japanese reactionaries seek to take the initiative in the Asia-Pacific region, a region of strategic importance where the interests of powers are intertwined.

In case this scenario of Japan becomes a reality, Asia will be exposed to overseas aggression to be launched by a new militarist war state.

Herein lies the serious and dangerous nature of the Japanese reactionaries' moves to turn their country into a military giant as exemplified by the induction of F-35 into the Air "Self-Defence Force."

Watching for a chance to take revenge for the defeat, the Japanese reactionaries are keen to revive the appearance of empire, staking their destiny on becoming a military giant.

But it is a daydream of Japan to realize its shameless wild ambition for emerging a military giant, backed by the U.S.
