Dangerous Tie-up for Aggression
Some days ago, a U.S.-Japan Security Consultative Committee held a meeting in Tokyo and adopted a joint statement.
In the joint statement the United States openly supports Japan's intention to strengthen its military power including its exercise of the right of collective self-defense.
Many countries of Asia and other parts of the world are expressing serious concern about it.
The statement is a document of wrecking peace in Northeast Asia. It is nothing short of a declaration of aggression.
The joint statement extended the sphere of military operation of the U.S.-Japan military alliance and made it more offensive. It totally nullified Japan's "pacifist constitution" which was adopted after World War II and opened a way for it to become a war state.
Through the statement Japan obtained the support of the U.S. to delete article 9 of its constitution and exercise the right of collective self-defense.
The U.S. seeks to use Japan as a shock force of aggression in realization of its domination of Northeast Asia.
Now the U.S. is curtailing military expenditure due to serious economic crisis. It tries to find a way out of it in allowing Japan to exercise the right of collective self-defense and remit greater military responsibility to Japan.
The joint statement reflects the common interests of the U.S. and Japan and their respective ambitions.
If Japan frantically stages military activities together with the U.S. in Northeast Asia, the regional situation would develop to the worst state.
The U.S. and Japan are seeking to turn the bilateral military alliance to a more offensive and aggressive one and seize military supremacy in this area with joint efforts.
What is more serious is the fact that the spearhead of the alliance is directed first to the DPRK.
Japan's reinvasion of Korea is not assumption, but reality.
Our army and people are watching with vigilance the rash acts of the U.S. and Japan against our Republic.
The U.S. and Japan are well-advised to look at the reality aright and not to act rashly.
