US Moves for Missile Shield Slashed

Pyongyang, March 2 (KCNA) -- Shortly ago, the United States had a test of intercepting ballistic missile by use of ABL, which is a declaration of new missile and arms race, Rodong Sinmun Tuesday says in a signed commentary.
This will add a new strong missile shield system to the U.S. nuclear means not only in the Asia-Pacific region but also in Europe and other regions, thus totally upsetting the balance of strategic arms and creating a complicated structure of confrontation and serious danger of war, it says, and goes on:
The U.S. missile defense system is aimed to reinforce its strategic capability for preemptive strike with new ultra-modern weapons and realize its ambition to dominate the world by the absolute military edge.
If the U.S. rounds off MD, a replica of the "Star Wars" project, China, Russia and other strategic rivals will have no other choice but to make themselves more dependent on nuclear arms. The U.S. imperialists seek in this to drag other big powers into arms race and lead them to bankruptcy by heavy burden.
By drawing as many countries as possible into MD, the U.S. intends to make them dependent on it militarily and tide over its economic crisis.
What cannot be overlooked is that the U.S. imperialists are talking about "threat" from the DPRK as a pretext for MD.
Their scheme for MD is just a product of the wild ambition to stifle the DPRK by force of arms.
Therefore, the DPRK has no choice but to take strong countermeasures including the war deterrent buildup.
It is the exercise of the right to legitimate self-defense for the DPRK to bolster up its war deterrent.
