KCNA Commentary: ‘U.S. Pacific Century’ and Korean Peninsula
The U.S. recently made public a new defense strategy the keynote of which is to maintain its “position as a world leader”.
Timed to coincide with this, the U.S. military warlike forces made the story about “provocation and threat” from the DPRK an established fact, talking about “worst scenario” and “uncertainty”.
What does this mean?
The Asia-Pacific region is now becoming a center of world forces.
The U.S. is keen to make the 21st century a “U.S. Pacific Century” in a bid to emerge an emperor of the world.
The “U.S. Pacific century” is, in essence, a new version of the U.S. foreign policy to monopolize the political and economic interests in Asia-Pacific region.
In a word, the U.S. announcement of its new defense strategy is aimed at formally spelling out a war strategy of putting importance to Asia-Pacific and directing its spearhead to the DPRK and China.
Its goal is to intensify the military infiltration and interference in the region by sparking a crisis and escalating the tension on the Korean Peninsula. Its ultimate purpose is to pressurize China, its biggest strategic rival, by force of arms and control Asia-Pacific and keep world supremacy.
It is part of the U.S. scenario that it is providing military support and encouragement to south Korea, Japan and other allies, while overstating “threat” from the DPRK.
The dangerous and reactionary nature of the U.S. new defense strategy lies in its moves to deter other powers from exercising their influence over the region and enlarging their beat by force and build an order of U.S.-led imperialist domination.
The U.S. unlimited imperialist greed and military adventures are posing a grave menace to peace and stability in the region and increasing the danger of a new Cold War there.
The U.S. is seriously mistaken if it thinks it can make the 21st century a U.S.-led ‘Pacific century” from an outdated hegemonic viewpoint.
The U.S. would be well advised not to forget the historical fact that it drank a bitter cup of defeat in Korea last century.
