Pyongyang, April 28 (KCNA) -- The U.S. test-launched a Minuteman-3 ICBM at an airbase in California at dawn of Wednesday, simulating a "strike on Pyongyang," amid the tensions running high on the Korean peninsula.
The test-fire, timed to coincide with the earlier-than-scheduled deployment of THAAD equipment and the arrival of the Carl Vinson nuclear aircraft carrier at the East Sea of Korea, makes the world see once again who is to blame for the deteriorating situation on the Korean peninsula.
It is just the U.S. which has pushed the situation on the peninsula to the brink of nuclear war by staging the largest-ever aggressive joint military drills against the DPRK for the past two months after bringing all sorts of nuclear strategic assets to south Korea.
The DPRK already filed complaints with the UN Security Council more than once against the U.S. hostile policy which compelled the DPRK to have access to nukes, and the nuclear threat and blackmail vividly manifested in the U.S.-led provocative and aggressive large-scale military drills targeting the DPRK.
However, the UNSC turned down every complaint but adopted a "resolution" prohibiting the DPRK from taking steps for self-defence without any ground in the light of international law. Worse still, it has neither taken issue with the U.S. over its nuclear threat to other country and missile attack on a non-nuclear state nor faulted its frequent ICBM test-launches.
It is, indeed, preposterous for the U.S. and its vassal forces to urge the DPRK to "cogitate" while condemning the step taken by the DPRK to bolster its nuclear deterrent for "self-defence" as a "threat" and sidestepping the root cause of the critical situation on the Korean peninsula.
No one in the world welcomes a gangster blackmailing the owner with a dagger.
It is an entirely legitimate right to self-defence for the DPRK to further increase its war deterrent to cope with the prevailing grave situation on the peninsula.
The present reality clearly proves that the DPRK was so right when it made a crucial decision to strengthen its nuclear force in quality and quantity under the uplifted banner of simultaneously developing the two fronts.
The nuclear force of the DPRK is a treasure sword of justice and reliable war deterrent to defend the sovereignty and dignity of the country and global peace from the nuclear war threat posed by the U.S.
In case a war breaks out on the peninsula, the U.S. will be held wholly accountable for it, no matter who made preemptive attack. It is because the U.S. has caused troubles by bringing a lot of nuclear strategic assets and special warfare means to strike the DPRK, not content with steady escalation of its hostile policy toward the DPRK.
Nonsensical and absurd is the policy of "maximum pressure and engagement" worked out by the Trump administration without any elementary sense about reality.
The Trump administration had better not forget the fact that the reason of the failure of all DPRK policies of its predecessors, notably the hard-line hostile policy, lie in their misjudgment of the DPRK, and that what they faced for the wrong policies were bitter defeats only.
The U.S. sustained the first defeat since its foundation for igniting a war in the 1950s, being ignorant of its opponent. It was made to sign a written apology for the first time in its history. They were all natural outcome of the DPRK-U.S. standoff.
How can one call the U.S. a normal country as it desperately persists in hostile policy toward the DPRK despite bitter defeats?
The more desperately the U.S. resorts to its moves hostile to the DPRK, the stronger the latter becomes. The U.S. ever-increasing military threat makes the latter's fortitude and retaliatory capability get stronger.
If the U.S. persists in playing chicken to test the will and perseverance of the DPRK, it will be made to actually experience what a real war is like. -0-
