Situation of Korean Peninsula and U.S. Anti-DPRK Policy: News Analyst
Pyongyang, December 13 (KCNA) -- The touch-and-go situation has persisted on the Korean Peninsula all the year round, due to the U.S. vicious hostile policy toward the DPRK.

This year the Obama administration has become evermore undisguised in its hostile moves against the DPRK, wantonly violating its sovereignty and dignity.

At the beginning of the year, the U.S. prodded its allies to adopt UN "resolution" No. 2087 against the DPRK's peaceful satellite launch, thus driving the situation of the Korean Peninsula to an uncontrollable crisis.

Under such grave situation, the DPRK could not but take practical countermeasures to defend its sovereignty and security.

Nevertheless, the U.S. and its followers cooked up another UN "resolution" No. 2094 on sanctions against the DPRK, describing its countermeasures as an "act of damaging the security of the Korean Peninsula" and a "provocation to the world peace".

With this as an occasion, the situation of the Korean Peninsula developed into an acuter state.

The U.S. has openly escalated nuclear threat to the DPRK.

It more frequently dispatched to south Korea and its vicinity latest nuclear war equipment and striking means, including nuclear-powered carriers Nimitz and George Washington, nuclear-powered submarine Cheyenne, B-52 strategic bombers, B-2 stealth strategic bombers, F-22 stealth fighters, putting its military threat on the most dangerous level, nuclear blackmail.

The U.S. together with the south Korean puppets staged on a regular basis large-scale nuclear war drills against the DPRK like Key Resolve, Foal Eagle and combined antisubmarine drill with nuclear bombers, nuclear-powered carriers and submarines and other nuclear war equipment involved.

The "tailored deterrence strategy" was officially confirmed by the U.S. and south Korea in a bid to mount a preemptive nuclear strike at the DPRK.

The U.S. escalation of tension on the Korean Peninsula is a link in the chain of its stratagem for world domination by keeping its military supremacy in the Asia-Pacific region.

In order to provide the political and military circumstances favorable for it in the Asia-Pacific region, a strategic pivot in the 21st century, the U.S. has deliberately aggravated the situation on the Korean peninsula, a gateway to the continent.

It is speeding up the amassment and redeployment of its armed forces to contain "potential enemies" and expand their domination in the region, advertising the theory of "Pacific State" and "security" while shackling its followers including Japan and south Korea to the fetter of its war strategy.

Under the pretext of coping with the "missile attack" from the DPRK, the U.S. has pushed ahead with the relocation of missile defence system (MD). The main points of the relocation are to deploy 14 interceptor missiles in Alaska and a radar station in Japan, the second of its kind in Japan, and build the third tunnelled interceptor missile base in its mainland after canceling the establishment of 4th stage MD system in Europe. The relocation is aimed to make the U.S. ready to neutralize the strategic forces of other powers.

As regards the serious development on the Korean Peninsula and its surroundings due to the U.S. moves, a scholar of the Institute of Oriental Studies of Russia said that the worse situation on the Korean peninsula would be a war outbreak, but there is no one who vouches that the clash would not expand.

A scholar of an institute of security and sustained development in Hawaii said U.S. redeployment of B-52 bombers on the Korean Peninsula would apparently be tantamount to declaring a nuclear war against the DPRK.

The U.S. persistent hostile policy towards the DPRK reveals that the ruling quarters of the U.S. have a poor understanding about the DPRK.

Its hostile policy including military threat and economic sanctions against the DPRK only compels the latter to beef up the deterrent for self-defence, its war deterrent.

From the geographical point of view, the Korean Peninsula is situated in what is decisive of the situation in the Asia-Pacific region.

If the U.S. remains persistent in its fruitless hostile policy towards the DPRK, it would get nothing but the loss of its political influence and economic rights as well as the total bankruptcy of its strategic interests in the region.

The U.S. is well advised to make a bold decision to drop its anachronistic hostile policy toward the DPRK as early as possible. Doing so will be a good choice for the world and the U.S. itself.
