KCNA Commentary on Japan's Moves for Reviving Militarism

Date: 28/10/2020 | Source: KCNA.kp (En) | Read original version at source

Pyongyang, October 28 (KCNA) -- The Japanese reactionaries are openly pursuing the revival of militarism.

Suga, who took office as prime minister of Japan recently, made a ritual offering to the Yasukuni Shrine on the occasion of the autumn ancestral rite day.

This proves that the island country remains unchanged in its black-hearted design to leaving no stone unturned to instill venomous ultra-nationalism into the minds of the Japanese public, just as the former regimes did, and to launch overseas invasion by embellishing the crime-woven past and reviving the departed soul of militarism.

Dancing to the tune of him who revealed the ultra-right colors, other politicians of Japan were busy visiting and making offerings to the shrine and unhesitatingly spouting rubbishes inciting militarism.

Notably, the minister of Defense let out sophism justifying his visit to the shrine, and the boss of the bipartisan lawmakers federation said before journalists after his visit to the shrine that he visited the shrine full of a wish that Japan and the world would be peaceful.

This is an unpardonable mockery to the Korean nation and the Asian people who suffered pain due to Japan in the past.

Far from feeling shame on the thrice-cursed crime and the defeat it committed and sustained in the past and drawing a lesson from it, Japan, harboring extreme grudge, has worked hard to gloss over the international community's demand for its atonement for the hideous crime-woven past, while getting crazy about historical distortion and pursuing reinvasion like the scenario for turning Japan into a military giant.

The regime of Suga is following in the footsteps of the former regime which perpetrated unprecedented "sins."

The present regime has been praised by Abe for "making a very good start." Buoyed by this, it seeks to step up the final completion of the legal and military foundations for launching overseas invasion.

It set up draft-making commission within the Liberal Democratic Party in a bid to make the present constitution a war one. It seeks to shape the draft bill on revision until the end of this year, giving spur to the moves for possessing the "capability for attacking the enemy bases."

Madcap large-scale war drills of the "Self-Defense Forces" are being staged across the Japanese archipelago, waters off it and in the sky as preparations for overseas invasion under the pretext of getting familiar with the methods of operations for defending remote islands, space and cyber warfare and electronic warfare.

No matter how frequently Japan pays lip-service to "global peace" and justify the visits to the shrine and embellish the blood-stained past history, no country would be taken in by it.

Such moves of Japan to turn the world into a theater of aggression and massacre by reviving militarism will only evoke bitterer denunciation and repugnance of the international community.

No matter how much water may flow under the bridge and how frequently one generation may be replaced with another, the Korean nation and mankind will never forget the past crimes of Japan but surely force it to pay dearly for them.

Japan should face up to this and stop running riot. -0-
