Nowadays the Korean Peninsula is in a constantly high tension in which a war might break out at any moment due to the US’s reckless policy of military aggression and pressure.

On April 6 this year the US carried out a surprise cruise missile attack on Syria and advertised it as a strong warning signal to the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea. Then, it hurled massive strategic means into the Korean peninsula talking of its separate military measure to cope with the DPRK like a pre-emptive strike. At the same time, the nuclear-powered aircraft carrier Carl Vinson-led target force, which was on its way home after it had participated in the Key Resolve and Foal Eagle 17 joint military exercises in south Korea, was dispatched back to the surrounding waters of the Korean peninsula. It was followed by the nuclear-powered aircraft carrier Nimitz-led target force, which had been staying off the west coast of the USA. All in all, three nuclear-powered aircraft carriers-based task forces were deployed in the operating zone off the peninsula, when the Ronald Reagan-based task force is included.

DPRK policy decided by the Trump Administration is aimed at: first, applying maximum sanctions and pressure against the DPRK, secondly, permanently deploying tactical nuclear weapons in south Korea, thirdly, carrying out separate military actions geared to “beheading operation” and “preemptive strike.”

At their inception the Trump Administration admitted Obama’s “strategic patience,” a hostile policy against the DPRK, as a failed policy or a finished policy, and considered varieties of hostile conceptions regarding the DPRK policy. They betrayed their true colour by conducting the Key Resolve and Foal Eagle 17 joint military exercises all across the south Korean territory. They openly advertise that the DPRK policy decided by the Trump Administration is aimed at: first, applying maximum sanctions and pressure against the DPRK along with somebody else; secondly, permanently deploying tactical nuclear weapons in south Korea; thirdly, carrying out separate military actions geared to “beheading operation” and “preemptive strike.” Based on the policy, the US House of Representatives passed a new act on sanctions against the DPRK with which to extend the scope of separate sanctions to the maximum and impose sanctions on foreign enterprises, organizations and individuals if they have economic transactions with the DPRK or employ its workers. Soon the US military launched two intercontinental ballistic missiles for test in a little over a week from April to May last. “Maximum pressure and engagement,” Trump’s anti-DPRK strategy, has turned out to put Obama’s “strategic patience” in the shade.

From the Trumen Administration, which drove the DPRK into ravages of war on the pretext of “communist threat,” to the Obama Administration through the Bush government which marked the DPRK arbitrarily as  “axis of evil” and “rogue state,” the US’s persistent DPRK policy has been aimed at aggression against the DPRK and overturn of its government.

Experts and media from around the world argue that the US military attack against the DPRK is no more than a crazy attempt which will cause an irrevocable disaster.

How about the reality, though? Sixty-four years ago the US troops, who had been proud of their 100 years of aggression, bit the dust in the DPRK. The Bush Administration tried their best to suffocate the DPRK but pushed the country to become a nuclear nation, and later Obama thrust the country into the status of Hbomb power. Experts and media from around the world argue that the US military attack against the DPRK is no more than a crazy attempt which will cause an irrevocable disaster. Actually, the DPRK is putting almost an unbearable pressure on the US by successful launches of a new type of ground-to-ground intermediate-range strategic ballistic rocket Hwasong 12, which can carry a large and heavy-duty nuclear warhead, and a similar rocket Pukguksong 2. In April last the Korea Asia-Pacific Peace Committee declared that the DPRK would not mind making any choice that it decides is needed to safeguard the peace of the Korean peninsula and the local region.

The Trump Administration is driving the US into the ruin with the hostile DPRK policy. Then, has Trump chosen a policy good for the US?
