U.S. Loudmouthed "Missile Threat" Refuted

U.S. Loudmouthed "Missile Threat" Refuted

Pyongyang, October 1 (KCNA) -- The U.S., which had vociferated that the DPRK would declare nuclear status on the occasion of its 55th anniversary, is now spreading a rumor that north Korea is posing a big threat to the U.S. by developing a new-type long-range ballistic missile. In this regard Rodong Sinmun today in a commentary says that lurking behind this diatribe is a U.S. black-hearted design to hype the "missile threat" from the DPRK and thus achieve its sinister purpose.

By floating the rumor that the DPRK's missiles may strike different parts of the world, the U.S. bellicose forces seek to lure their allies into supporting and cooperating in the efforts to establish the missile defence system (MD) in a bid to secure necessary funds and technology and calm down the international criticism of the MD, the commentary observes, and goes on:

Another aim of the U.S. is to increase its profits through missile export by forcing other countries to buy more missiles from it.

The U.S. escalated smear campaign over the "missile threat" from the DPRK is, in the final analysis, aimed to kill two birds with one stone. The U.S. bellicose forces are set to ignite a new war on the Korean peninsula anytime under the pretext of "military threat" from the DPRK.

The U.S. desperate efforts to achieve its sinister purpose through its undisguised false propaganda about the "missile threat" from the DPRK are nothing but an anachronistic dream.
