Japanese Reactionaries' Moves to Establish MD under Fire

   Pyongyang, May 8 (KCNA) -- The Japanese reactionaries are displaying feverish activities to establish the Missile Defence System (MD) at the earliest date possible while acting separately, not fully depending on cooperation with the United States in this matter.
    Commenting on this, a Minju Joson analyst Tuesday says:
    Japan's frantic push for the establishment of the MD which the world considers needless is aimed to achieve its long-pursued design to convert the country into a military power.
    Japan, a defeated nation, is not allowed to possess more armed forces than needed for self-defence. It is for this reason that the Japanese reactionaries seek to build a military giant and launch overseas expansion by pulling up others. Hence they came out with the MD doctrine allegedly to cope with the "missile threat" from the DPRK.
    The true nature of the MD will never change, no matter how heatedly the Japanese reactionaries may make irrelevant remarks over the missile threat from the DPRK. The MD is considered nowadays to be indispensable requisites to a preemptive attack on a targeted object.
    What the Japanese reactionaries seek is to establish the MD as early as they can and thus hold an unchallenged edge in strategic offensive weaponry and launch a preemptive attack for militarist overseas aggression at an early date.
    No country will allow Japan to freely brandish the sword of aggression just as it did in the past.
    Japan would be well advised to behave with discretion, clearly mindful that its every move is under the close watch of the international community. It should also drop the bad habit of seeking its own interests by pulling up others.
