Condemn US war fury in the Korean region
Due to the intervention of the USA in Korean region carried out on the pretext of the presence of nuclear weapons in North Korea has lead to a dialogue regarding a threat of war. North Korea has stated it would not hesitate to attack if its borders are violated.
Despite many countries possessing nuclear weapons, only the USA has used them against people in the history of mankind. It is also the country that maintains the largest nuclear arsenal. Also, it was the USA that dropped the ‘mother of all bombs’ – the most powerful conventional bomb in the American arsenal on Afghanistan. When considering Korean region it was the USA that invaded Korea, partitioned it and established US military camps in South Korea and even today more than 50,000 US troops are present in South Korea.
Also, the USA with South Korea carries out joint military exercises annually and the immediate reasons for the creation of the war tension in the region was the arrival of a US war ship to the region. By now a US military submarine too has been sent to the area. As such, it is clear that it is the USA that is carrying out provocations.
Despite North Korea being a country that has been using nuclear technology for more than 50 years, it has never used nuclear weapons against any country. They have never violated USA borders; nor have they deployed spy services against the USA.
Hence, the situation that has arisen in the Korean region is a military interference against a free sovereign state. We could identify several objectives the US imperialism hopes to accomplish through its moves.
• Impose more and more sanctions against North Korea to pressurize it as it cannot be made submissive
• Using the tension to place THAAD missiles network in South Korea that the US had not been able to install due to protests by the masses
• Simultaneously US has taken measures to install a radar system in South Korea to spy into Chinese and Russian territories
• Broaden the market for US weapons racket
• To suppress the opposition that has surfaced in South Korea and Japan in a bid to maintaining US military camps in those countries
• An attempt to conceal Donald Trump’s failure with regard to US economic crisis
As such, all progressive forces throughout the world should rally against the war fury and provocations of the US imperialism.
Condemn all interferences being carried out against Democratic People’s Republic of Korea!
Condemn US war fury which is a threat to world peace!
