Japan which resorts to every possible means in order to realize its wild ambition has revealed once again its true nature.
Just ahead of the New Year, NHK reported that a "north Korean missile fell in the waters 2 000 kilometres east of Hokkaido". And 20 minutes later, it corrected its report, saying it was a "mistake" and a "misreport", thus stirring the world.
The aim of such "misreporting", which frequently happens in Japan which boasts of its possession of so-called high technology, is too dangerous to be taken just as a mere mistake or misunderstanding.
It is a clear expression of the ulterior motive of Japan to incite a terror-charged atmosphere against the DPRK in its country and take advantage of it to hasten the modernization of its armed forces for reinvasion.
This was proved by the revelation of the Japan's media coinciding with the "misreport" incident that the Defence Ministry of Japan was planning to update the existing anti-missile defence complex loaded with medium-range surface-to-air missiles from 2020 and complete it within a few years.
Japan has so far "steadily" laid a stepping stone to become a military giant for reinvasion under the pretext of coping with someone's threat. Now it is buckling down to completing the preparations for it.
The dangerous attempt of the Japanese reactionaries running amuck to make the island nation a war state again is being denounced by the public.
In November 2019, a nationwide demonstration against the constitutional revision was launched in Japan on the occasion of the Day of Promulgation of the Pacifist Constitution and there was an assertion that the "Pacifist Constitution that prohibits war and the possession of armed forces must be maintained", which is a typical example of the public denunciation.
Eliciting social support for the revision of the constitution is emerging as the most urgent task for the Japanese reactionaries who are preoccupied with the wild ambition for militarism to recover the past position of a colonial suzerain state and for Prime Minister Abe who set the constitution revision as his greatest political aim.
It is just the "misreport" racket that the Japanese reactionaries conceived out of their intention to kill two birds with one stone by arousing the public sentiment.
Saying that NHK had once made the similar false report in January 2018, foreign media unanimously commented that the "probability that all of these are deliberately created by the Abe regime to maintain its hostile stance against the DPRK cannot be ruled out."
They strongly criticized that it is hard to understand that such a "whopping mistake" was made by the state-run media of Japan and that the "irresponsible mistake" must not be treated lightly at the acute moment now that such a false alarm might touch off an armed dispute.
The trickeries of the Japanese reactionaries to incite terror and repulsion towards the DPRK among the Japanese and divert the attention of the international community anywhere can never work.
If Japan, obsessed with the ambition of reinvasion, behaves just like a guilty party filing the suit first, it will precipitate its destruction.KCNA
