KCNA Commentary on Purpose of Japan's Provocative Military Drills

Date: 19/02/2020 | Source: KCNA.co.jp (En) | Read original version at source

Pyongyang, February 19 (KCNA) -- Of late, Japan has frequently staged provocative military drills together with the U.S.

Days ago, tens of fighters belonging to its Air "Self-Defense Force" conducted a joint drill around Japan with U.S. Air Force fighters including two B-52s.

Mainichi Shimbun said it seems that the recent drill, largest ever in history in terms of scale, is designed to contain the DPRK and China.

This year has witnessed one U.S.-Japan joint military exercise after another on the ground, in air and in the seas such as joint parachuting drill involving the Ground SDF and the U.S. forces in Chiba Prefecture, large-scale joint drill involving the Ground SDF and the U.S. marines in Hokkaido and other areas, joint drill involving the transport planes at the U.S. Futenma Air Base in Kumamoto Prefecture and first landing drill involving the amphibious task force of the Ground SDF, which is the marines of the Japanese version, and the U.S. marines in Okinawa Prefecture.

This bellicose move of seriously threatening the regional situation shows Japan's intention for a military giant and reinvasion getting more undisguised.

The Japanese reactionaries seek to increase the capability of the SDF for an actual war and complete the preparations for reinvasion by taking the advantage of the U.S. policy for hegemony.

Japan still remains unchanged in its inveterate habit of drawing water to its mill with the backing of a big country while kowtowing to it.

It was thanks to the support of the U.S. that Japan, which had been defeated in the war while running amuck for realizing its wild ambition for overseas expansion, could revive and systematically accelerate its scheme for a military giant and revival of militarism.

Japan has revived and grown by stealth under the U.S. positive patronage and backing after its defeat. It has steadily developed the ground, maritime and air SDFs into the forces of aggression well known to the world in violation of the principle of "exclusive defence" stipulated in its constitution.

It frantically conducts U.S.-Japan-south Korea joint military exercises unprecedented in scope alongside independent military exercises under the simulated conditions of overseas invasion while perfecting the commanding system, composition and deployment of the SDF for a war of aggression.

Recently the Japanese politicians including the prime minister, defense minister and chief Cabinet secretary termed the Japan-U.S. alliance a "firm pillar" and the one playing a "role of cornerstone" while calling for strengthening it. The transfer of the Futenma Air Base of the U.S. forces to Henoko has also been stepped up to meet the demand of the U.S. All this is a revelation of their sordid intention.

It is by no means fortuitous that military experts say the U.S. is trying to use Japan as its shield in containing China in Asia-Pacific, and that Japan is getting all the more undisguised in the wild ambition to increase the combat power of the SDF through the offensive drills and become a normal state capable of conducting a war.

Japan, far from making an apology and remorse for the unheard-of crimes against the Korean people and other Asian peoples and mankind, is getting desperate in its try to repeat the history of aggression with the backing of its master. Japan is, indeed, a shameless and barbarous country.

If Japan over-heated with the daydream of "Greater East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere" continues to take the road to a military giant and reinvasion, it will get nothing but destruction.
