U.S. Should Take Proper Strategic Option


Extremely provocative remarks are heard in the U.S.

Brass hats of the U.S. military said that the largest-ever Key Resolve and Foal Eagle joint military drills would be kicked off in south Korea before long and they were examining the proposal to massively mobilize nuclear strategic assets including nuclear-powered carrier Carl Vinson, nuclear strategic bombers B-52 and B-1B and stealth fighter F-22.

This goes to clearly prove that the U.S. policy toward the DPRK to bring down the latter by force of arms remains unchanged and the U.S. wants a war, not peace.

The U.S. is groundlessly pulling up the DPRK over its measures for self-defense while talking about "provocations and "threat". This is nothing but a cynical ploy to cover up its true colors as wrecker of peace and shift the blame on to the DPRK.

It is the consistent stand of the DPRK to oppose the confrontation of force and preserve peace on the Korean peninsula through dialogue and negotiations.

However, the DPRK cannot take only a fence-sitting attitude towards the U.S. working with bloodshot eyes to swallow up the former.

Unless the U.S. makes a switchover in its policy toward the DPRK and stop the saber-rattling to invade the DPRK, the DPRK will steadily bolster up its capability for self-defence with the nuclear force as a pivot.

The U.S. would be well advised to face up to the reality and stop going reckless and take a proper strategic option with deep thought. This would do the U.S. good, too.
