KCNA Commentary Condemns Japan for Getting Vocal over "Security Crisis"

Pyongyang, February 26 (KCNA) -- Japan is pushing ahead with arms buildup.

Shortly ago, the Japanese Ministry of Defense announced that it would develop and introduce new jamming equipment, citing the DPRK's "ballistic missile threat", and described the planned deployment of surface-to-warship guided missile in Okinawa as a "development of a deterrent force to cope with threat from China".

This is a hackneyed method resorted by Japan preoccupied with the ideas of a military giant and reinvasion under the pretext of "security crisis".

Since its defeat in World War II, Japan has rushed headlong into militarism, raising the clamor of the "security crisis".

For the revival of militarism, Japan, taking the advantage of the escalation of tension on the Korean peninsula and the region, has expanded the operation sphere of the "Self-Defence Forces" (SDF) to all parts of the world and even to space, after shaking off the veil of "exclusive defence" and emerged as an entity possessed of the greatest offensive capability next to the U.S. in the West.

Nevertheless, the island country is shamelessly justifying its moves for turning itself into a military giant by describing the DPRK, China and Russia as the states which pose threat" to Japan.

This year has witnessed one war exercise after another on the ground, in the air and in the seas of the archipelagoes with the support from the U.S. such as drills simulating the defence and recapture of remote islands.

Days ago, the Air "Self-Defense Force" conducted a large-scale joint air drill with B-52s belonging to the U.S. Air Force, emphasizing the goal was to contain the DPRK and the surrounding states.

The crafty trick of the Japanese reactionaries is to secure a legal justification for "security defence" by disguising Japan as a victim before the international community.

Now besides the thoughtless remarks of individual politicians that they should take land away from others by way of igniting a war, such gangster-like logic as describing other country's territorial sovereignty as an illegal one and claiming Japan's responsibility for solving the problem is being heard even within the Diet.

No wonder military experts express serious concerns over Japan getting all the more undisguised in its wild ambition to increase the combat capability of the SDF and become a normal state capable of fighting a war.

It is a pipedream for the Japanese reactionaries to regain the post of the old colonial suzerain state by containing surrounding countries by force and becoming the "leader of the East".

A foolish act always invites a miserable end. -0-
