Preemptive Nuclear Strike Is Not Monopoly of U.S.: Rodong Sinmun

Pyongyang, March 29 (KCNA) -- AP reported that north Korea's declaration that a nuclear warhead explosion test and a test-fire of several types of ballistic rockets capable of carrying nuclear warheads will be conducted in a short time sounds plausible and Washington should cautiously approach the former's nuclear development capability.

A newspaper of Japan said that the U.S. should not interpret as a simple threat a successful simulated test of atmospheric re-entry of a ballistic rocket opened to the public by north Korea on March 15.

Foreign media including UK and Canada reported that north Korea's declaration on the miniaturized nuclear warheads and the access to atmospheric re-entry of a ballistic rocket was by no means hypocrisy but truth. Therefore, it goes to clearly prove that Washington's estimation was wrong as it ignored the nuclear development capability of north Korea.

Rodong Sinmun Tuesday says in a commentary in this regard:

Western media's assertion is little short of a slap in the face of the U.S. intelligence institutions which have underestimated the DPRK's military capability.

The U.S. escalating nuclear threat and blackmail, sanctions and pressure only redouble the DPRK's muscle.

The DPRK had access to the world's greatest nuclear deterrent not to ignite a nuclear war. It is aimed to prevent the constant danger of a nuclear war prevailing on the Korean peninsula.

The army and people of the DPRK remain unchanged in their iron will to decisively retaliate against the U.S. imperialists and other hostile forces as long as they are making desperate efforts to plunge the space of existence of the DPRK into a nuclear disaster by igniting hysteric war. Preemptive nuclear strike is by no means a monopoly of the U.S.

The Obama administration would be well advised to come to its senses, though belatedly. -0-
