KCNA Commentary Blasts U.S. “2018 Nuclear Posture Review”

Pyongyang, February 13 (KCNA) — Recently the U.S. released “2018 nuclear posture review”.

In the review the U.S. said that the DPRK together with China, Russia and Iran constitute “serious threats” to the U.S. and its allies, adding that it would start modernization of strategic nuclear weapons and the development of “low-intensity smaller nuclear weapons”. Referring to the use of nuclear weapons, it said it would make counteraction when the U.S. and its allies are exposed to attack by non-nuclear weapons, to say nothing of nuclear weapons.
The review also said that they would never tolerate nuclear attack on the U.S. and countries friendly to it by north Korea, stressing that in no case can one exist after using nuclear weapons and that any attack by north Korea would lead to the “end of its regime”.
This is a deception and mockery of humankind desirous of peace and security and an open declaration of a rogue state not to rule out a preemptive nuclear attack targeting the world including the Korean Peninsula.
Now the new trend for the improvement of the north-south relations and detente has been created on the Korean Peninsula thanks to the proactive and compatriotic measure taken by the DPRK, arousing great support and interest from the public at home and abroad.
But the U.S. is leading the situation to a touch-and-go nuclear war phase by massively shipping into and around south Korea nuclear strategic hardware including nuclear carrier Carl Vinson and nuclear strategic bombers B-2, B-52.
Timed to coincide with this, the U.S. announced that it would expand the scope of the use of nuclear weapons so that they can be used at a time when it and its allies are exposed to attack by conventional weapons.
To threaten to use nuclear weapons as conventional weapons on the Korean Peninsula, the world’s biggest hotspot area, is little short of declaring the start of a new thermo-nuclear war.
The former special aide for disarmament and nuclear non-proliferation of the U.S. National Security Council said that the greater number of nuclear weapons would increase the possibility of the outbreak of a nuclear war, branding the recent review as something foolish. An American nuclear expert, too, contended that this can easily cause an all-out nuclear war.
Figures of the U.S. political, military and academic circles expressed concerns about the danger of the Trump administration’s nuclear policy, and Senator Dianne Feinstein from the Democratic Party rejected it, saying that there can never be a limited nuclear war.
The international community is denouncing the review, commenting that the U.S. can lead the whole world to Cold War again, the low-intensity nuclear weapons can become a train for a nuclear war as it has high possibility of being used for an actual war, and that Trump has chosen a reckless path.
The “nuclear posture review” is, in essence, little short of “preemptive nuclear attack order” and “nuclear war instruction” which clearly disclosed the U.S. sinister intention to realize its ambition for world domination based on unchallenged nuclear upper-hand.
The U.S. has to always bear in mind that its assertion that one can not exist after using nuclear weapons is apt for its own empire going reckless, being carried away by nuclear ambition.
The DPRK values peace but will never beg for it and will resolutely counter any act of harassing peace and stability on the Korean Peninsula.
Those fond of fire are bound to perish in flames and the more attachment to the nukes of tyranny the U.S. has, the more dangerous the security and future of the “only superpower” will be.
