Pyongyang, August 22 (KCNA) — The U.S. imperialists are massively introducing latest weapons and military equipment into south Korea while readjusting their military strategy targeted against the DPRK behind the scene of the six-party talks, says Rodong Sinmun Sunday in a signed article.
It goes on:
The U.S. is contemplating the increase of the spending of 11 billion U.S. dollars envisaged for the implementation of the plan for bolstering up its forces in south Korea to 13 billion in 3-4 years to come. It has massively introduced into south Korea all types of high performance weapons and latest equipment in less than one year since the announcement of the plan.
It intends to deploy two Aegis destroyers equipped with ultra-modern missile systems in the East Sea of Korea on a permanent basis and two battalions of “PAC-3” and three squadrons of F-117 Stealth fighter bombers of the U.S. Air Force in south Korea within this year. It has already completed the development of new type missiles capable of destroying underground facilities of the DPRK and is going to supply them to its forces n south Korea before any others.
What merits a serious attention is that the U.S. Navy is planning to deploy a latest nuclear aircraft carrier flotilla of John Stenis in the waters off the Korean peninsula.
The U.S. imperialists’ escalated moves to bolster up their forces in south Korea suggest that they will work more desperately to round off their preparations for a new war against the DPRK, increase the military tensions on the Korean peninsula and throw more obstacles in the way of the six-party talks.
The ulterior aim of the U.S. is to neutralize the DPRK’s capacity to carry out its military operations through a surprise preemptive attack and thus conclude the second Korean war through blitz warfare by mobilizing the U.S. forces in Japan, the U.S. reinforced forces including rapid task force from the Pacific region including Guam and Hawaii and the U.S. mainland, its forces in south Korea and the south Korean army in case of “emergency.”
The U.S. imperialists’ ambition to mount a preemptive attack on the DPRK and dominate it remains unchanged.
Under the present situation where the DPRK and the U.S. are technically at war a preemptive attack cannot be a monopoly of the U.S.
The representative of the Panmunjom Mission of the Korean People’s Army in a recent letter sent to the UN secretary general said: We solemnly declare once again that we will not remain a passive onlooker to the U.S. frantic arms buildup and not wait with folded arms till the U.S. side winds up its preparations for attack and occupies the starting position and mounts a preemptive attack. This is the fixed stand of the KPA toward the war and the enemy.
More desperate and reckless arms buildup of the U.S. for a preemptive attack on the DPRK will only harden the principled stand of its army and people on the war and the U.S. imperialists.
