U.S. Policy of Military Confrontation Would Get It Nowhere: Minju Joson
Pyongyang, February 2 (KCNA) -- Shortly ago, the U.S. Centre for Strategic and International Studies said in "Asia-Pacific Rebalance 2025" worked out at the request of the Pentagon that it is necessary to bolster up the missile defense capability in the Asia-Pacific region and discussed the deployment of THAAD in south Korea as one of the technical measures for it. Meanwhile, the U.S. military was reported to discuss in real earnest the issue of turning the ground for testing Aegis missile defense located in Hawaii into a base for exclusive use of missile defense.

Commenting on this, Minju Joson Tuesday says that it is the calculation of the U.S. to put under its control the Asia-Pacific region of ever- increasing strategic significance at any cost and thus turn the world into the unipolar one dominated by it.

The commentary goes on:

The Korean Peninsula is of important strategic value for the U.S. in carrying out its current Asia-Pacific rebalancing strategy for its geopolitical nature.

If the missile shield like THAAD is deployed in the Korean Peninsula, the U.S. can disable the strategic weapons of regional powers capable of challenging its strategic interests, to be precise Russia and China, hold military hegemony in the region and, furthermore, gain the possibility of establishing the U.S. dominating system in the Asia-Pacific region.

No country would remain a passive onlooker to the U.S. moves to seek military hegemony.

The rivals of the U.S. are bound to shape their strategies to achieve equilibrium of force in face of the U.S.

The U.S. would be well advised to roll back at once its foolish policy of military confrontation harmful not only to the interests of other countries but to its own security.
