Nature of Japanese Militarists Remains Unchanged

Aggressive and Predatory Nature of Japanese Militarists Remains Unchanged

Pyongyang, February 23 (KCNA) -- It is 60 years since the Japanese imperialists suffered a defeat while going wild with aggression and war but there is no change in their aggressive and predatory nature. On the contrary, their deep-rooted militarist ambition is growing wilder, increasing its danger. Rodong Sinmun Wednesday says this in a signed article. Noting that aggression and plunder are invariable nature of the Japanese militarists and means for their existence, the article goes on:

The Japanese militarists regard overseas aggression and pillage as the only way out for Japan to exist and calculate that by doing so they can realize their old dream of the "Greater East Asia Co-prosperity Sphere" to emerge a political and military giant. It is their strategic goal and ambition to translate the dream for world domination in the 21st century into reality at any cost.

Japan's annual military spending exceeds 50 billion US dollars and most of it is being spent for the modernization of the "Self-Defense Forces" (SDF).

The Japanese government formally decided on seven bills related to the "emergency" including the "bill on the protection of the people" at a Cabinet meeting. It is set to adopt them and finalize the readjustment of the "emergency legislation."

The visit to the "Yasukuni Shrine" has been placed on an official and popular basis.

The dispatch of SDF to Iraq and its military activities under the pretext of "support to the anti-terrorist war", "logistic support to the U.S." and "assistance to reconstruction of Iraq" diametrically run counter to Japan's "pacifist constitution" prohibiting any war. It is an intention of the Japanese militarists to realize their ambition for overseas aggression and world domination at any cost.

The DPRK is made the primary target of their attack. Japan's moves to perfect the "emergency legislation," the reorganization of SDF's combat units and their deployment to implement the "strategy of attaching importance to the western part of the country" to cope with the "emergency on the Korean Peninsula" and intensified war exercises of the SDF in the regions near the peninsula, etc. are designed to mount armed attacks on the DPRK.

The predatory nature of the Japanese militarists also remains unchanged.

Because of this aggressive and predatory nature they are utterly indifferent to the interests of the international community, those of other countries.

They try to retain their grip on other countries as their markets, suppliers of raw and other materials and places for their investment by intensifying their economic infiltration into those countries.

By doing so, Japan seeks to intensify its economic exploitation and plunder of other countries and, furthermore, establish its political and military domination over them, using them as springboards.

The aggressive and predatory nature of the Japanese militarists will never change. If there is any change, their methods of aggression and plunder will get more crafty and vicious.
