US Arms Sale to South Korea Flayed

Pyongyang, September 7 (KCNA) -- An "annual report on the military aid" published by the U.S. Department of Defense recently revealed that the U.S. has massively delivered all type weapons and military equipment to south Korea. It sold to south Korea latest war hardware to the tune of 462 million U.S. dollars last year alone.

Minju Joson Tuesday observes in a signed commentary in this regard:

The U.S. increased arms sale to south Korea betrays its sinister intention to sharply increase its delivery of sophisticated weapons to south Korea in a bid to prepare the puppet forces as independent war forces, round off the preparations for a second Korean war and tighten the military alliance between the U.S. and south Korea.

The U.S. is the arch criminal driving the puppet forces to the escalated confrontation with the DPRK and disturbing the peace and stability on the Korean Peninsula, the commentary notes, and goes on:

The U.S. moves to bolster up its combat capability have turned south Korea into a hotbed of a new war, a nuclear war and created a touch and go situation on the Korean Peninsula.

U.S. nuclear weapons are densely deployed in south Korea and in its vicinity and the interests of powers are intermingled with each other on the Korean Peninsula. In case a war breaks out there, it will quickly develop into a world thermonuclear war.

Defusing the tension and ensuring peace on the peninsula are not only a regional problem but also the most important and responsible task to save the world from a nuclear war disaster.

If the U.S. shuns the conclusion of a peace treaty and seeks to bring down the DPRK by force of arms from the stand of strength to stifle the DPRK, the hostile relations between the DPRK and the U.S. will fester and a war on the peninsula will be unavoidable.

Whether a war is averted and peace is ensured on the peninsula or not entirely depends on the U.S. attitude.

It will be a beneficial option for the U.S. to defuse the danger of a war and make a bold decision to build a new peace-keeping regime on the peninsula.
