Reckless U.S. Nuclear War Scenario

Recently, the Korean Central News Agency published the following articles concerning the revised U.S. nuclear war strategy.

The Bush Administration reportedly ordered the Defense Department to work out an emergency plan to use nuclear weapons against at least seven countries and manufacture small nukes for this. A confidential report of the Defense Department submitted to the Congress on January 8, according to the scenario, points to the nuclear attack on the DPRK and six other countries, and to three circumstances where nuclear weapons can be used.

The report, signed by U.S. Defense Decretary Rumsfeld, is reportedly used by the U.S. strategic command in preparing the scenario.

This indicates that the Bush administration is working in real earnest to prepare a dangerous nuclear war to bring nuclear disasters to our planet and humankind.

This testifies to the fact that it is by no means accidental that the U.S. hardline hawkish groups have become all the more undisguised in their belligerent moves to resume the cold war before and after the emergence of the Bush administration. The U.S. nuclear war scenario is an inhuman plan to spark a global nuclear arms race and bring the political and military situation in the world, including the Korean peninsula, to an extreme pitch of tension as it is a grave challenge to the peace and stability of humankind.

It is a well-known fact that the U.S. nuclear blackmail policy has been one of the basic principles to govern the cold war policy the United States has pursued for over half a century since it developed A-bombs in the middle of the 20th century and used them against Japan that was close to its defeat in the second world war, for the first time in history.

However, the successive U.S. administrations, taking into consideration the world public opinion, have stressed that the U.S. nuclear weapons are a war deterrent force while advocating their nuclear policy.

In the current report the Bush administration made a policy switchover from its criminal plan to make a nuclear strike on any target of specific countries anytime according to its unilateral judgement to a "realistic" policy, free from the past cumbersome diplomatic commitments to nuclear weapons.

Commenting further, the DPRK Foreign Ministry issued a statement which said:

The Bush group's plan for a nuclear attack is a daydream of the reckless persons who do not hesitate to stifle the DPRK even by use of nuclear weapons and, to this end, eliminate the whole Korean nation from the earth by imposing a nuclear disaster upon it.

Under the present situation where nuclear lunatics have taken office in the White House, we are compelled to examine all the agreements with the U.S.

In case the U.S. plan for a nuclear attack on the DPRK turns out to be true, the DPRK will have no option but to take a substantial countermeasure against it, not bound to any DPRK-U.S. agreement.
