Japan's Sycophantic Attitude to US Assailed
Pyongyang, January 4 (KCNA) -- Minju Joson, a leading newspaper of the DPRK, today criticizes Japan for its sycophantic attitude toward the U.S. over the relocation of the U.S. military airfield in Futenma.

When visiting Okinawa Prefecture recently Prime Minister of Japan Naoto Kan said that he "apologizes" for the failed transfer of the U.S. Futenma airfield outside the prefecture and feels ashamed to show himself to the people in the prefecture.

Meanwhile, Chief Cabinet Secretary Sengoku underlined the "significance" of the U.S. military base in Okinawa. And he tried to convince the inhabitants of the transfer of the military base within the prefecture, saying that they would ask for the prefecture's "acceptance" to bear the expenses for the base and that it is unavoidable for the prefecture to share the expenses.

Commenting on the facts, the newspaper says:

The Japanese authorities are ridiculed by the world people as an incompetent political dwarf kowtowing to the U.S.

When the ruling Democratic Party of Japan bluffed that it would turn the U.S.-Japan relations into "horizontal" from "vertical" the world people had dismissed it as a boast of indiscreet Japan.

Down through generations, Japan has asked the U.S. for "its security" while offering its territory as military bases for the U.S.

That is why Japan can not express its own view, browbeaten by the U.S., even in international arena.

The authorities of Japan, therefore, become a butt of the world people's ridicule, as it has to maintain itself by sycophancy and yielding to the U.S.

This is an inevitable fate of Japan, a servant of the U.S.
