US touted "Missile Threat" from DPRK Dismissed

Pyongyang, February 20 (KCNA) -- The U.S. is now asserting that the allocation of 9.9 billion U.S. dollars for the implementation of the plan for establishing the missile defense (MD) system is meant for "coping with the missile threats" from such countries as the DPRK and Iran.
Minju Joson Saturday observes in a signed commentary carried in this regard:
The U.S. is making much fuss as if something very serious had happened, grumbling it is afraid of missiles of small countries. This sounds very funny from every angle.
The symptom of serious "missile allergy" shown by the U.S. which boasts of being relatively advanced in the field of strategic offensive weapons only betrays its sinister purpose and calculation.
The U.S. is now going in the direction of throwing a missile defense network worldwide.
It is the U.S. military strategy to cover the whole world with its missile defense network in a bid to beat its rivals in the field of strategic offensive weapons and go unchallenged and establish a definite military domination over other countries.
It is the U.S. calculation that its campaign for spreading the fiction about "threat", pulling up such countries as the DPRK and Iran, would help justify its arms race. This is nothing but a foolish daydream.
With nothing can the U.S. justify its wild ambition to act an international gendarme, lording it over the world after putting it under its military control. It will never be able to escape due rebuff and denunciation from the international community.
