Rodong Sinmun Warns U.S. of Arms Race
Pyongyang, April 22 (KCNA) -- The U.S. bellicose forces recently announced their plan to spend 1.45 trillion dollars for the development and operation of F-35 for more than five decades to come. Timed to coincide with this, two fighters of the same type were inducted to the U.S. Marines for the first time. The Defense Department decided to increase the number of drones to 650 by 2021, 85 of which will be deployed in the fiscal 2013.

Rodong Sinmun Sunday observes in a bylined commentary in this regard:

This is a revelation of the U.S. imperialists' invariable policy of strength to realize their ambition for world domination through unchallenged military edge.

The above-said moves of the U.S. imperialists cannot be interpreted otherwise than an anachronistic act of going against the desire of the people for global peace and stability and the trend of the times, the commentary notes, and goes on:

The U.S. war-thirsty forces are talkative about "peace" and "stability" but their deeds do not agree with their words.

These words, in essence, are nothing but a pretext to maintain a military edge.

The U.S. imperialists are the arch criminals escalating the arms race and tensions worldwide and wrecking global peace and stability.

If the U.S. is allowed to persist in the development and production of new type weapons as now, the world will find itself in a vortex of arms race and this will compel other countries to bolster up war deterrent to counter it.

The U.S. arms race will only end up throwing itself into a pitfall.

The U.S. imperialists are bound to meet their end due to the arms race sparked by themselves. Time will prove this.
