Pyongyang, May 11 (KCNA) — The United States is chiefly to blame for sparking a new space arms race and it is the world’s biggest war force. The U.S. should stop its criminal moves for space militarization and arms race at once. Rodong Sinmun Wednesday says this in a signed commentary.
It goes on:
The Bush warlike forces are contemplating going ahead with a program to develop satellites equipped with interceptor missiles. This is a dangerous military move as it will spark a new space arms race.
They have already deployed ground interceptor missiles in Alaska and California. As if it were not enough with this, they are going to spend an exorbitant amount of money for pushing ahead with the above-said development program. This is aimed at building missile bases not only on the ground and the sea but in space as well in a bid to cover the world with a dense network of missiles, threaten, blackmail and contain other countries with its unchallenged military edge and realize its ambition for world supremacy.
The U.S. stepped-up moves to develop satellites equipped with interceptor missiles and establish the missile defence system (MD) are designed to establish a military monopoly on space and secure an absolute strategic edge and an unchallenged position there. Through this it seeks to aim at any region and country of the world from its space military bases and mount a preemptive attack on them any time without difficulty in a bid to establish world supremacy. Herein lies the reactionary and dangerous nature of the above-mentioned U.S. moves.
If the Bush warlike forces persist in their frantic moves to develop and deploy new-type space arms, obsessed by an anachronistic daydream, this will compel other countries to take actions against them. Then this will no doubt trigger off a new space arms race.
