Pyongyang, March 25 (KCNA) -- Japan is making much fuss after hearing the news that Hwasong artillery units of the Strategic Force of the Korean People's Army staged a ballistic rocket launching drill on March 6.
The Japanese authorities do not conceal their uneasiness about the fact that the U.S. bases in Japan are well within the DPRK's striking range of ballistic rockets and are going busy taking countermeasures.
High-ranking authorities, including the prime minister, the foreign minister and the defence minister, vied with each other to make shrill cry that "it is a threat on a new stage" and "it is crucial for the international community to take counteractions." They are making haste with the examination of THAAD deployment while stepping up the moves for the deployment of the system for intercepting missiles at the maximum altitude of 1 500 km.
There was citizens' evacuation drill, the first of its kind since World War II, in Akita Prefecture on March 17 under the simulated conditions of the DPRK's ballistic missile launch.
Spreading in the Japanese society is the assertion that the sphere of military activities of the Self-Defence Forces should be extended in the light of the extreme danger that no one can predict which might be flown from the DPRK.
This is just like a burnt child dreading the fire.
The DPRK does not hide the fact that the ballistic rocket launching drill was conducted to target the bases of the U.S. imperialist aggressor forces in Japan in contingency as it was the one to cope with the U.S.-led aggressors' nuclear war rehearsals against the former.
It is because of guilty conscience that Japan is making such fuss about the drill conducted by the DPRK as the latter has never fired a single bullet at territories of other countries beyond its territorial waters for self-defense.
The DPRK does not forget the fact that Japan was reduced to rear and logistic bases of the U.S. forces when they ignited the Korean War in the 1950s.
The then U.S. Ambassador to Japan Murphy said that Japan turned into a great logistic base at a marvelous speed, adding that if Japan had not done so, the U.S. would have been unable to fight the Korean war.
The Japanese reactionaries remain unchanged in their ambition and strategic goal to launch reinvasion with the DPRK as their stepping-stone backed by the U.S.
The ruling quarters of Japan are offering their land as a logistic base of the U.S. forces in zealous pursuance of the U.S. strategy to dominate Asia-Pacific.
Timed to coincide with the Key Resolve and Foal Eagle, the largest-ever U.S.-south Korea joint military drills for nuclear war against the DPRK being staged on the Korean peninsula, Japan launched a spy satellite against the DPRK and staged joint naval maneuvers with the U.S.
Japan had better stop acting rashly.
If the SDF launches reinvasion together with the U.S. aggressor forces, it will certainly meet setbacks.
The war maniacs are disturbing peace on the Korean peninsula and stability in the region and leading the situation to the brink of a nuclear war. Should they fire even a single shell into the inviolable territory of the DPRK, Japan will not escape fatal disaster.
Japan had better not invite constant disaster by recklessly toeing the U.S. line and escalating its moves against the DPRK. -0
