Rodong Sinmun Accuses U.S. of Sparking Reckless Arms Race
Pyongyang, April 3 (KCNA) -- The U.S. is mulling test-firing ultra-modern supersonic missiles capable of striking any targets in the world within an hour as part of its desperate move to build a European missile shield.

This is a revelation of the U.S. reckless scenario to realize its wild ambition to dominate the world at any cost, backed by its military supremacy, says Rodong Sinmun Thursday in a commentary.

The U.S. moves to build the missile shield in Europe and develop supersonic missiles are bringing a new Cold War to the world, the commentary notes, and goes on:

Early in this year China test-fired a supersonic missile the highest speed of which is 10 times that of sound. Russia is reportedly developing ultra supersonic weapons and India has also joined in such a race. The facts prove that a new arms race has already started.

The U.S. seeks to put spurs to such worldwide arms race by conducting another ultra supersonic missile launching test.

The number of those countries seeking to develop ultra supersonic missiles is poised to increase in the future to accelerate the arms race.

What the U.S. should know is that such reckless moves for military supremacy will only lead to its self-ruin.

It is a well-known fact that the U.S. has serious financial doldrums.

It is, therefore, the U.S. which will suffer from the escalated worldwide arms race.

The U.S. had better stop running riot, aware of where it stands.

It would be well advised to behave with reason if it doesn't want to fall into decay and ruin and meet the same miserable fate as that of the second Roman Empire.
