Pyongyang, September 19 (KCNA) -- The U.S. is busy pushing ahead with the moves to build up its arms.
Shortly ago, the U.S. Navy announced that it would additionally
deploy newly built Virginia-class attack nuclear submarine Illinois in
Asia- Pacific. In its wake it opened to public its plan to equip
aircraft belonging to the U.S. marines with laser weapons.
The Missile Defense Agency of the U.S. Department of Defense
disclosed that it would put missile detectors into the space and
allocate 400 million U.S. dollars for their development and test.
The U.S. arms buildup is aimed to physically and thoroughly contain
regional powers in a bid to carry out its strategy to dominate the
At present, the U.S. regards the Asia-Pacific region as the main front of realizing the strategy of its hegemony.
It is the U.S. calculation that establishing its control over the
Asia-Pacific region will lead to the implementation of the world
strategy as big powers, potential rivals are concentrated in the region
and it has the biggest population and leading economic potentials.
The U.S. has unchallenged military edge over Russia and China in the
region by reinforcing such strategic assets as nuclear strategic
bombers, nuclear submarines and THAAD. Consequently it is bringing a new
Cold War era and nuclear arms race.
This is evidenced by the assertions made by the U.S. administration and military as regards the arms buildup.
The director of the Missile Defense Agency of the U.S. Department of
Defense underscored the need to put missile detectors into the orbit of
the space, noting that regional powers are making increased efforts to
develop ultra supersonic missiles.
The director of the Underwater Operation Bureau of the U.S. Navy
claimed that it is more urgent to boost the underwater striking
capability such as that of Illinois under the situation that potential
rivals are developing new type weapons and sound detecting technology at
a fast tempo and deploying for actual battle precision guided
ship-to-ship missile with the firing range of more than 900 miles.
World military experts commented that the U.S. arms buildup will bring big burden to China and other big powers.
As was reported, the U.S. is the chief criminal pushing the regional
situation to the brink of a war and posing a threat to global peace and
This being a hard reality, the U.S. insists its arms buildup and war
drills are aimed to "preserve peace". This is hypocrisy and mockery of
the international community.
The people in the region are following the ever more escalating U.S.
military action with vigilance and strongly reacting against it.
The U.S. arms buildup for realizing its anachronistic ambition for
world domination would only invite stronger military counteraction of
the regional countries. -0
