Japan Should Think twice of Consequences of Possession of “Capability for Counterattack”

Japan has been speeding up its moves towards the possession of the “capability for counterattack”.

It is a universal knowledge that “capability for counterattack” is only a term devised for covering up the aggressive nature of the “capability to attack enemy base”, the prerequisite of which is preemptive strike on the opponent.

Japan specified the possession of the “capability for counterattack” in its “2022 White Paper on Defense” for the first time. And it is seeking to legalize this as its state policy by specifying it in its “national security strategy” as well, to be amended by the end of this year.

Japan is gradually hastening its schemes for amendment of the constitution, increased defense expense and arms build-up in revenge for its defeat under the pretext of “total defense”. It is crystal clear that if it even possesses the “capability for counterattack”, it will emerge as dangerous force of reinvasion destroying peace and stability in the region.

More serious is the fact that Japan spreads far and wide rumors about the non-existent “threat” from us, and with this as justification, it seeks to possess the “capability of counterattack”.

In recent days, an official of the Japanese defense ministry said: Big advance in North Korea’s nuclear and missile technology cannot be overlooked at least for the sake of security of Japan and the region; all options inclusive of the “capability of counterattack” are currently under review.

This clearly is a warlike act to legalize the possession of capability of preemptive strike and aggressive strike aiming at us.

Being engrossed in finding an excuse for preparation of its reinvasion, Japan might not have time to think whom it is now provoking.

Our country is no longer Korea of a century ago when Japan used to violate its sovereignty at will, and our people’s animosity towards Japan is growing with each passing day.

Japan would be well-advised to think twice of the consequences to be entailed from stabbing at the open wound of our people, driven by its inveterate repugnance towards our Republic.
