U.S. Dangerous Nuclear Policy under Fire

    Pyongyang, March 15 (KCNA) -- The U.S. imperialists are the common enemy of humankind as they are bringing the dark clouds of a nuclear war to hang over the world and blocking social progress and independent development of countries and nations. Rodong Sinmun today says this in a signed article. It goes on: It is the unanimous demand of the peace-loving people of the world and an urgent task to be tackled by the times to completely eliminate nukes and realize nuclear disarmament. Nevertheless, the United States has put spurs to the development and production of new type nukes and bolstered up its modern nuclear forces, defying the worldwide demand for nuclear disarmament and going against the trend of the times towards it.
    It is the consistent military policy and the strategic target of the U.S. to beef up its nuclear forces and hold nuclear supremacy. The U.S. is pushing ahead with the production and development of new type nukes in real earnest in a bid to steadily bolster up its nuclear forces, retain its nuclear supremacy and carry out its nuclear war strategy. The U.S. nuclear tests are a link in the chain of its efforts to implement the strategy.
    Of late the U.S. carried out a sub-critical nuclear test at the Nevada underground nuclear testing site under the signboard of "guaranteeing the security of the existing nukes." It was the 22nd sub-critical nuclear test since 1997 and the 9th one since the emergence of the Bush administration.
    The U.S. imperialists pin great hope on nukes, regarding them as an all-powerful means in carrying out its strategy to dominate the world by force. It is the ulterior intention of the U.S. imperialists to dominate the world and nuclear blackmail and war are their basic military means for realizing it. A preemptive nuclear attack is the core of the U.S. imperialists' nuclear strategy. The DPRK is the major target of the U.S. imperialists' strategy of preemptive nuclear strike.
    The U.S. imperialists have staged ceaseless nuclear war drills against the DPRK by massing nuclear means in and around south Korea, openly talking about the use of nukes in the "event of contingency" on the Korean Peninsula. This has increased the danger of a nuclear war in this part of the world.
    They are contemplating bringing a nuclear-powered carrier to south Korea in the future. The commander of the U.S. forces in south Korea hinted at this at a recent hearing of the U.S. Senate Armed Services Committee. The U.S. imperialists plan to deploy a nuclear-powered carrier in Japan on a permanent basis. They are deploying in Guam more strategic bombers and other means for nuclear strike at the DPRK.
    Their evermore undisguised moves to mount a preemptive nuclear attack on the DPRK compel it to pay utmost attention to this development and maintain full readiness to foil it. The moves frantically escalated by the U.S. to unleash a nuclear war against the DPRK, pursuant to its theory of preemptive attack, will only give further momentum to the latter's work to bolster up its deterrent for self-defence.
