“US/Japan Facing Threat from North Korea Armed with Nukes”: Another Sinister Strategy To Justify US Domination of Asia-Pacific
Pyongyang, August 18 (KCNA) — The U.S. is getting evermore vociferous about “threat from north Korea”.
The supra-partisan diplomacy and security experts group of the U.S. said in its “3rd Armitage Report” on Aug. 15 that the U.S. and Japan are facing the threat from north Korea armed with nukes.
Earlier, [Admiral Samuel J. Locklear], commander-in-chief of the U.S. forces in the Pacific, cried out for getting ready to protect security from north Korea’s provocations.
Walter M. Golden, deputy commander of the U.S. 8th Army, said that the mission to deter the threat from Pyongyang is becoming more important than ever under the present situation where the center of the U.S. forces is being shifted to the Pacific region.
The International Institute for Strategic Studies of the U.S. in a report worked out at the request of the U.S. Defense Department said that north Korea is the primary threat to the U.S. in Asia.
Lurking behind the trumpeting of the U.S. Administration and strategic think-tanks about the “threat from north Korea” is a sinister scenario to justify the implementation of the U.S. strategy for dominating Asia-Pacific.
There are big powers with military and economic potentials in Asia-Pacific. It is the scenario of the U.S. to expand its strategic interests in the region.
This is bound to lead to infringing upon the strategic interests of big powers and, consequently, spark off acute confrontation among big powers in the region.
The U.S. feels a more urgent need to maintain its military edge in the region than ever before.
The U.S. “talk about threat from north Korea” is no more than sophism to justify its arms buildup and military actions to contain the big powers in the region.
It is the U.S. calculation that it is most appropriate to brand the DPRK with strong anti-imperialist stand among those countries in the Asia-Pacific region and has long been in the hostile relationship with it as the force threatening its security and thus misleads public opinion.
The U.S. forces’ relocation aimed at laying a military siege to other big powers is making brisk progress behind the row over “threat from north Korea”.
The U.S. has already decided to station its marines in the northern part of Australia and is now holding military negotiations with some countries in Asia-Pacific for stationing its forces there.
The U.S. assistant secretary of Defense said that the U.S. formation of a siege to Asia has already become an established fact.
Owing to the U.S. undisguised hegemonic moves the military tension is escalating and the danger of a new war increasing in the region.
The Ulji Freedom Guardian joint war exercises to be staged with south Korean puppet army from Aug. 20 are war drills for aggression threatening peace and stability in the region.
It was reported that this saber-rattling would involve not only huge armed forces of the U.S. and south Korea but also military personnel of those countries which dispatched their troops to the front during the last Korean War and offensive means recently deployed in the area along the Military Demarcation Line.
No matter how vociferously the U.S. may talk about “threat from north Korea,” it can never cover up the deceptive and criminal nature.
The U.S. would be well advised to stop at once its long bankrupt trumpeting about “threat from north Korea” and cease its unjust military actions threatening the DPRK and other countries in the region.
The hostile actions persistently intensified by the U.S against the DPRK regarding it as forefront for implementing its strategy for dominating Asia-Pacific would only embolden the DPRK to bolster up its nuclear deterrent for self-defence.

Pyongyang, August 19 (KCNA) — The provocative Ulji Freedom Guardian joint military exercises are to be staged throughout south Korea from August 20. 30 000-strong U.S. imperialist aggressor forces, huge forces of the south Korean puppet army and service personnel of foreign countries including Australia, the U.K., Canada, New Zealand, Denmark, Norway and France will take part in the military drills.
Bodies of the DPRK made public a joint statement on August 19 as regards the touch-and-go situation prevailing in the Korean Peninsula.
They are the Central Committee of the Democratic Front for the Reunification of Korea, Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of Korea, National Peace Committee of Korea and the National Reconciliation Council.
The statement said that the military maneuvers are a serious challenge to the public at home and abroad hoping for the peace and detente on the peninsula, and an unpardonable military provocation to the DPRK. It is also a declaration of an all-out war against it.
The statement went on:
The U.S. and the south Korean puppet regime are working hard to attain their goal for aggression at any cost by resorting to the direct use of armed forces and unleashing a war after their unsuccessful sanctions and blockade and failed attempt to stifle the DPRK.
The prevailing situation clearly shows who is the root cause disturbing the peace and security in the peninsula and who is the source and provocateur of a war.
The DPRK has Kim Jong Il’s patriotism and single-minded unity more powerful than nukes.
Supreme Commander Kim Jong Un, great brilliant commander of Mt. Paektu, issued an order to the effect that if the U.S. imperialists and the south Korean puppet regime dare preempt reckless firing, it will not be confined to a local war and the DPRK will never miss the priceless golden opportunity but lead it to a sacred war for national reunification.
If they wage the reckless war games to invade the DPRK and even a single shell is dropped on its inviolable territory or waters, its revolutionary armed forces will deal a deadly counter-strike at them and wipe out the aggressors from this land through a nationwide holy war to give vent to the wrath and condemnation of all Koreans in the south and the north and achieve the historic victory in the great war for national reunification without fail.
The Koreans are undergoing all sorts of sufferings and misfortune due to the national division.
