Japan's Scheme to Introduce MD System under Fire


    Pyongyang, December 16 (KCNA) -- Japan is heading for the introduction of the missile defense system, raising terrific outcries over fictitious "threat from north Korea" in an effort to hasten its conversion into a military power and overseas aggression under this pretext, says Minju Joson today in a signed commentary. It goes on:
    When it was finding its way to the introduction of the MD system jointly with the United States, it tricked the international community, saying that it would confine itself to the stage of researches. But now it is inventing new pretexts, finding it hard to hide its scheme to introduce the MD system any longer.
    The Japanese reactionaries are shouting themselves hoarse that they should have their own MD system to cope with "the missile threat from north Korea" and putting up military alliance with the U.S. as a subterfuge. But they can never conceal their sinister intension with these pretexts. The missile of the DPRK is a self-defensive means to protect its security and dignity from the hostile forces' moves to stifle it. Therefore, the missile of the DPRK would not be a threat to Japan, if it had no hostile designs against the former.
    It has become obvious that the Japanese reactionaries are working hard to drive the world into the holocaust of another war of aggression by employing every conceivable tactics. So it should be perfectly clear that its surrounding countries would not remain passive onlookers. This immediately means an arms race.
