At the end of last year, the Japanese reactionaries made public the newly revised "defense programme" and "Midterm Defence Capability Buildup Outline," a detailed arms supply plan for the programme.

Making them public, the Japanese reactionaries betrayed their intention to put spurs to the arms buildup, while pulling up the DPRK and talking about "weighty and most serious threat".

A commentary of Minju Joson Tuesday says this reckless act fully shows the craftiness of the Japanese reactionaries who seek their own profits, while taking issue with others, and the brutality of the descendants of samurais who work hard to realize their militarist ambition at any cost.

The commentary continues:

The Japanese reactionaries have left no stone unturned to justify the history of aggression, implant poisonous militarist idea in society and to make Japan a "war-capable country" through the revision of even the "Pacifist Constitution".

Their revision and announcement of the "defense programme" and the "Midterm Defence Capability Buildup Outline" were part of their desperate efforts.

They openly unveil their attempt to build the "Self-Defense Forces" into aggression forces of offensive nature, after throwing off the deceptive veil of "exclusive defense".

It is as clear as noonday that if their moves for the revival of militarism and aggression are left intact, the descendants of samurais will reinvade the Korean peninsula and other parts of the Asian region under the "flag of rising sun shedding rays" interwoven with crimes.
