Rodong Sinmun Calls for Smashing U.S. Strategy for Preemptive Attack

    Pyongyang, April 11 (KCNA) -- The Bush administration recently announced a "national security strategy report", which outlines its main foreign policy on national security, diplomacy, military affairs, etc. for the present. In the "report" the U.S. revealed its intention to mount a preemptive attack on the independent countries and those countries disobedient to its assertion, listing them as "outposts of tyranny". Rodong Sinmun today observes in a signed article in this regard: This is little short of a brigandish document declaring a war as it stated that the U.S. would brand as "enemies" without exception those countries refusing to follow the American view on value and would not rule out even a war to overthrow them. The U.S. strategy for preemptive attack is very dangerous as it will spark a new arms race and threaten and wreck the global peace and security, the article points out, and goes on:
    The U.S. should not be allowed to threaten and blackmail those anti-imperialist independent countries and list them as targets of its military attack for the mere reason that they refuse to follow its policy.
    In the "report" the U.S. pulled up China over the increase of military capability in an "untransparent manner". It also threatened Russia, claiming that "democracy is retrograding" there. The failure to foil the above-said strategy would not only leave the independence of sovereign states seriously violated on international arena but adversely affect the human cause of independence and peace.
    All peoples aspiring after independence and peace should mount collective attacks on the U.S. imperialists. Defence capability should be increased to smash the U.S. strategy for preemptive attack.
    The U.S. imperialists in the "report" listed the DPRK as the main target of their preemptive attack. It is made the primary target of their preemptive nuclear strike. However, such strategy can never work on the DPRK equipped with modern offensive and defensive means. The powerful revolutionary armed forces of the DPRK have all countermeasures to cope with any possible preemptive attack from the U.S. imperialists. The army and people of the DPRK will mercilessly wipe out the U.S. imperialist aggressors if they dare provoke it.
    The more frantic the U.S. imperialists get in their moves for preemptive attack for aggression, the further they will stand rebuffed and isolated worldwide only to meet the fate of self-destruction.
