Pyongyang, March 19 (KCNA) — Some days ago, the Japanese reactionaries termed the DPRK and China “states posing threat to Japan” in its “white paper on disarmament” for 2006.
Rodong Sinmun today observes in a commentary in this regard:
It is not hard to guess what the Japanese reactionaries seek in attacking others like a thief crying “Stop the Thief!”.
Japan earmarks 50 billion U.S. dollars as military expenditure every year, thus becoming the world’s second largest in military spending. By spending such stupendous amount of money as military spending every year Japan has equipped its “Self-Defence Forces” with latest military hardware and ultra-modern military technology.
Of late the Japan Defence Agency decided to spend billions of Yen for the purchase of computers to be provided to members of the SDF out of its 2005 budget under the pretext of taking the best measure for information handling.
The Japanese reactionaries are taking an active part in the U.S. development of the missile defense system.
Timed to coincide with the Japanese reactionaries’ announcement of the white paper, the commander-in-chief of the U.S. Forces in the Pacific at a hearing of the U.S. Senate Armed Services Committee disclosed that the U.S. plans to ensure stronger “triangular military cooperation” with Japan and south Korea in order to cope with the “threat of north Korea and China and terrorists” in Asia. The Japanese reactionaries have already agreed with the U.S. on the tightened military alliance and the common use of the bases of the SDF and the U.S. forces bases.
It is the plan and target of the Japanese reactionaries keen on re-aggression to become a “leader” of Asia and stage military operations to materialize the “Greater East Asia Co-prosperity Sphere” at the zealous instigation of the U.S. and under its patronage. To this end, they seek arms buildup, massive production of up-to-date military hardware and the legalization of the combat activities of the SDF under the pretext of coping with the “military threat” from the DPRK and China.
The Japanese reactionaries would be well advised to stop their rash acts, bearing in mind that they will meet a miserable end only if they run amuck, seized by their ambition for overseas aggression.
