Japan's Submission to US under Fire
Pyongyang, June 29 (KCNA) -- Some days ago, the Japanese foreign minister vociferated about the "need" to "tighten the Japan-U.S. alliance" under the pretext of "threat" from someone. He, referring to the issue of the transfer of the Futenma U.S. forces base, jabbered that the "strength of Japan is not enough to protect the lives of its people," adding that "it must borrow the strength of the U.S." and the "view that the Japan-U.S. alliance is important was carried forward by the new regime" and the like.

Rodong Sinmun Tuesday observes in a signed commentary in this regard:

This is an anachronistic act of the Japanese government to keep invariably pursuing the policy of toeing the U.S. policy, turning its face away from the people's mindset.

It goes on:

It is the only way for Japan to get rid of security unrest caused by the continued presence of the U.S. forces in its territory to drop its stand of toeing the U.S. line and put an end to the above-said military presence.

The Japanese public is strongly demanding the withdrawal of the U.S. forces from Japan.

The Japanese rulers had better properly understand their people's mindset and behave themselves before crying out for tightening the above-said "alliance" under the pretext of the fictitious "threat" from someone. It is a damned silly attitude for them to seek to administer state affairs without knowing about the mindset of the people of their country. The Hatoyama regime publicly declared that it would transfer the Futenma U.S. forces base outside Okinawa Prefecture or the country but short-lived as it yielded to the U.S. in betrayal of people. This teaches a serious lesson to the politicians of Japan.

They have not yet come to their senses but seek to please the U.S. Japan is the only country in the world which blindly kowtows to the U.S.

If they continue depending on the "Japan-U.S. alliance," the master-servant relations, Japan will never get rid of its position as a servant of the American master.
