Pyongyang, February 25 (KCNA) — The U.S. and Japanese warmongers staged “combined air-defence and missile-shielding drill” from Feb. 16 to 23.
In the war gamble they went frantic with joint detection, tracking and interception of the DPRK’s ballistic rockets and fighters through the coordinated operation of the air-defence networks of the U.S. and Japan, interception drill of Patriot missile units under the Japan Air “Self-Defense Force” and the emergency sortie drill of fighters.
Rodong Sinmun in a commentary Sunday says that the U.S. and Japanese reactionaries’ reckless act is the dangerous military provocation for spoiling the hard-won atmosphere for improvement of the north-south relations and peace on the Korean peninsula and provoking a war.
Noting that it is the headache for the U.S. obsessed with its stratagem for dominating Asia-Pacific and Japanese reactionaries going frantic with moves for reviving militarism and reinvasion that the situation on the Korean peninsula is eased, it goes on:
The U.S. is working hard to realize its ambition for hegemony at any cost by building up armed forces in the Asia-Pacific region and staging frantic war exercises under the pretext of the “threat” from someone.
The Japanese reactionaries are also foolishly trying to realize their old dream of the “Greater East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere” with the backing of their U.S. master overheated with war fever.
The U.S. and Japanese reactionaries’ reckless war hysteria clearly proves who the arch criminal bringing clouds of a nuclear war to hang over the Korean peninsula is while disturbing the reconciliation and unity of the Korean nation.
Tiger moth fond of playing with fire is bound to perish in the flames.
The U.S. and Japanese reactionaries should stop acting rashly, properly understanding who their rival is.
