U.S. Imperialists' Reckless Arms Buildup under Fire

  Pyongyang, September 14 (KCNA) -- The United States recently deployed in Japan the latest 10,000-ton class Aegis cruiser Shiloh equipped with a ballistic missile defense system. It plans to begin deploying PAC-3 in its air force base in Kadena of Okinawa this month as the second-phase step and make it partly operational by the end of this year. Rodong Sinmun Thursday in a signed commentary carried in this regard observes:
    The U.S. imperialists' reckless arms buildup and their moves to undertake military provocations against the DPRK are very dangerous as they push the situation on the Korean Peninsula to the point of explosion.
    It is the strategic goal of the U.S. to invade the DPRK and lay a military siege to China and Russia and, moreover, establish domination over Asia.
    Now the U.S. imperialists consider it as a key and most important task for implementing their aggressive Asia-Pacific strategy to put the DPRK under their military control. To this end they seek to use Japan as a shock brigade for waging the second Korean war. In a word they are contemplating using Japan as their advance and logistic bases and a combined war commanding post to carry out their scenario for invading the DPRK. The U.S. bellicose forces' additional deployment of the Aegis in Japan is part of their moves to round off the preparations for a new Korean war.
    After designating the DPRK as part of an "axis of evil" and a target of their nuclear attack the war-like Bush forces are working hard to put their scenario for a war of aggression against the DPRK into practice under the signboard of "ensuring security" and "defending" their allies.
    The Japanese militarists overheated with their wild ambition to stage a comeback to Korea are zealously cooperating with the U.S. in its moves to ignite a new Korean war. In case a war breaks out on the Korean Peninsula, Japan is bound to automatically involve itself in the war.
    The U.S. is rushing headlong into a war, pursuant to its reckless hostile policy toward the DPRK. This is an unpardonable crime as it is aimed at starting a dangerous war to put the whole of Asia under its control.
