Pyongyang, August 24 (KCNA) — The war game “Ulji Focus Lens-04” started by the war hawks within and without is a grave military provocation that pushes the peace process on the Korean peninsula far back and drives the situation to the brink of a war, says a Rodong Sinmun analyst Tuesday.
He goes on:
The point in question is that the U.S. bellicose forces have launched the adventurous military rehearsal for a war against the north at a time when the sentiments of the Korean nation for reconciliation and reunification are running high and the DPRK and the U.S. are in the process of the 6-party talks for the settlement of the nuclear issue. The reunification movement and the military racket, the dialogue and the war drill can not go together.
The joint military drill is an offspring of the U.S. policy towards the DPRK intended to expand its domination to the northern half of Korea by starting a war against the north through a preemptive attack. It is a test war and preliminary war before the start of a war against the north. It is designed to verify the effectiveness and feasibility of the “operation plan 5027-04” through a computer-aided mock drill.
So dangerous are the background of the drill and the scheme lurking behind it.
It must not go unnoticed that the south Korean authorities are joining in the U.S. imperialists’ moves to provoke a war of aggression against the DPRK.
It is high time to smash the aggression moves of the outside forces, defend the security of the nation and revitalize the reunification movement with the might of national cooperation. The south Korean authorities should immediately stop such anti-national act as joining in the U.S. war drill against the north with independent viewpoint and will of reunification.
After terrorizing the Iraqi power with its military club, U.S. is now floundering in slough in face of the rebuff of the resistance forces. If it unleashed a war on the Korean peninsula it could never escape an annihilating retaliatory blow and not a war provocateur could return alive from this land. The U.S. should understand that this warning is not an empty word and discontinue its adventurous play with fire and retract its hostile policy towards the DPRK.
