Pyongyang, November 8 (KCNA) — Rodong Sinmun today in a signed commentary lashes out at the U.S. for releasing results of the opinion poll on the issue of “dispatching the U.S. forces in case of ‘attack’ against Japan by North Korea” and putting forward “guidelines” for pushing “diplomatic and security policies concerning its biological and chemical weapons.”
The commentary says:
The opinion poll conducted by the U.S. on the issue of “attack against Japan by North Korea” and its talk about the dispatch of its forces to “defend Japan” are intended to accelerate the arms buildup on the absurd pretext of “threat” from the DPRK, and, furthermore, stifle the DPRK by force of arms.
The United States has many military bases in South Korea, Japan and other areas around the Korean peninsula where more than 100,000 strong forces are deployed. Not content with this, it seeks to hurl more sophisticated operational equipment including nuclear weapons and aggression forces into there.
The United States is trying to justify its arms buildup in Japan by spreading the theory of “threat” from the DPRK and calm down the anti-U.S., anti-war spirit daily mounting among the Japanese people and get Japan more deeply involved in the execution of its policy of aggression by creating the impression that the DPRK poses a “threat” to the security of Japan.
“Diplomatic and security policies concerning biological and chemical weapons of North Korea” peddled by the U.S. bellicose forces are nothing but a sinister plot to deploy more biological and chemical weapons along with nukes for a new Korean war.
The U.S. loudmouthed peace on the Korean peninsula and improved relations are no more than rhetoric.
If the U.S. continues to behave as now, it will be impossible to avoid a war, much less defusing the tensions on the Korean peninsula.
Its bellicose forces are well advised to ponder over the consequences to be entailed by the policy of stifling the DPRK and behave properly.
