Pyongyang, August 29 (KCNA) -- The U.S. and the south Korean pupept forces are pressing for the additional THAAD deployment, much upset by the successive successes by the DPRK in its ICBM Hwasong-14 test-launches only to touch off stronger and fiercer struggle of south Koreans from all walks of life against THAAD deployment.

The committees for struggle in Songju and Kimchon, sites of THAAD deployment, and other civic organizations including the People's Action against THAAD Deployment have held rallies and demonstrations almost every day demanding the immediate withdrawal of the additional THAAD deployment, suspension of the assessment of THAAD impacts on environment, immediate suspension of the operaiton of THAAD hardware, probe into the truth behind the illegal THAAD deployment course and punishment of those responsible.

The Won Buddhism of south Korea formed a death-defying corps and have waged human shield action to check the introduction of THAAD launch pads and equipment of their groundwork.

Organizations of people from all other social standings also rose up, getting stronger in their denunciation that the present chief executive who seized power by taking advantage of the people's candlelight resistance is "increasing the danger of war through pressed-for additional deployment of THAAD" and "THAAD can not check the north's missiles, and it is a monster exposing the Korean peninsula to the danger of a war".

This proves that opposition to THAAD deployment has become the unanimous mindset of the south Koreans.

The THAAD deployment was planned by the U.S. to weaken and contain its regional potential rivals and realize its strategy for putting Asia-Pacific and, furthermore, the world under its control. The direct executor of the plan is south Korea, a stooge serving the U.S.

Then, question is would THAAD deployment be a real comfort for the U.S. and south Korea.

The U.S. is on jitters in fear that the nuclear-armed ICBM of the DPRK may fall on its mainland. It is easy to guess how much comfort THAAD can offer the U.S.

It is the unanimous comment of the world public, a fact also acknowledged by the people inside the U.S., that THAAD would not be enough to check the DPRK's ballistic rocket getting all the more intelligent and precision-based.

It is none other than south Korea which will be exposed to the greatest disaster due to THAAD deployment.

South Korea's introduction of THAAD, being pursuant to the U.S. has turned the land into the primary target of neighboring big powers and ballistic rockets and a theatre of a nuclear war.

In the final analysis, THAAD deployment brought to south Koreans an increasing danger of a war, extreme uneasiness over the life security and massive economic losses, not "iron-strong security".

It is quite natural that the south Koreans have turned out in the action against THAAD deployment, even shelving their earning for living, emphasizing that THAAD has to be checked even though they might risk their lives.

However, the U.S. and the south Korean puppet forces go crafty to quench the mounting spirit against THAAD, saying that "the THAAD interception rate has been estimated to be high", "there is high approval rate supporting THAAD deployment" and "THAAD radar has no effect on human body and environment."

The south Koreans from all walks of life have to turn out in the action to withdraw THAAD, war monster inflicting nuclear holocaust on the nation, from this land. -0-
