U.S. Moves to Dominate World under Fire
The U.S. is contemplating building ultra-modern type nuclear-powered carrier "Ford" equipped with a new take-off system by spending a stupendous amount of fund, according to the "Janes Defence Weekly".
Commenting on this, Rodong Sinmun on March 12 observes:
The U. S. plan to build the above-said carrier is aimed at establishing unchallenged military supremacy and carrying out its strategy for world domination by force.
It is the invariable ambition and strategy of the U.S. imperialists to dominate the world by force.
The U. S. has an unchallenged edge in terms of military hardware.
It is putting spurs to the moves to militarize the space, too, in a bid to realize its wild ambition for world domination. Its ulterior motive is to secure the capability to establish a military monopoly on the space and strike any area any time.
To this end, the U.S. has attached great strategic importance to the establishment of the missile defence system.
It is the intention of the U.S. to destroy satellites of other countries by using means for shooting down satellites in case of "emergency" in a bid to go unchallenged in the space.
The U.S. imperialists´ reckless military hysteria is sparking off a new Cold War and arms race on the earth, increasing the danger of war and putting world peace and security at peril.
The U.S. would be well advised to face up to the trend of the changed world and the situation and stop its reckless military moves.
Struggle for Pullout of U.S. Troops from S. Korea Urged
The United States is getting evermore pronounced in the moves to intensify its military occupation and control over south Korea contrary to the Korean´s strong will for national independence and their desire for national reunification and thus realize its anachronistic design for aggression on the DPRK at any cost.
Rodong Sinmun in an article on March 12 cites data to disclose such moves.
Pointing out that the GIs present in south Korea, a field executor of the U.S. hostile policy for aggression on the DPRK, are a cancer-like entity blocking the Koreans´ patriotic struggle for national reunification, the article say:
The U.S. has frantically increased the combat capacity of its troops in south Korea, the main means for materializing the above-said policy, since the very day it occupied south Korea.
The U.S. arms buildup and risky war provocative moves in south Korea are entirely a revelation of the said policy.
The U.S. troops in south Korea are the root cause of the misfortune and sufferings the Korean nation is undergoing, and a cancer-like entity obstructing the co-prosperity of the nation as their presence is illegal and for aggression. 60 odd years of the U.S. troops´ presence clearly prove that they are not a "friend" but an aggressor and plunderer and a cancer-like entity blocking the Korean nation´s independent reunification, peace and prosperity.
In south Korea today there are many U.S. military bases, a hotbed of all sorts of terrible crimes, and it has turned into the biggest arsenal and advance base for nuclear war in the Far East, where huge latest type war means and equipment including various types of nuclear weapons are deployed.
If the U.S. troops´ presence in south Korea is allowed to continue any longer, it will be impossible to realize the Korean nation´s desire for independent reunification, all Koreans will keep suffering from the danger of war and the uniform development of Korea can never be expected.
The struggle for getting the U.S. forces withdrawn from south Korea is the way to ensuring the Korean nation´s dignity, peace and independent reunification.
All Koreans should turn out as one in the struggle to drive the U.S. forces of south Korea, shouldering the destiny of the nation.
