Beijing & Moscow ‘Will Make Washington Rue the Day It Deployed THAAD to Korea’

Having made the decision to deploy their THAAD anti-ballistic missile system, the US is deliberately undermining stability in Northeast Asia and across the globe, causing the just indignation of China and Russia, says a recent editorial in the People’s Daily, the official organ of China’s ruling Communist Party.

Last month, the United States and South Korea concluded an agreement to deploy the US Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) missile defense system on South Korean territory. Washington cited increased tensions on the peninsula over North Korea’s nuclear and missile program for the deployment.

Subject to an inevitable barrage of sharp criticism from Pyongyang, which claimed that the system was being deployed to try to decapitate the country’s top leadership, the US-South Korean decision has also raised significant concern in China and Russia.

Late last week, the People’s Daily issued a scathing criticism of the US move, warning that China and Russia would be forced to take “unexpected” but justified “countermeasures that the US and South Korea cannot afford.”
