Pyongyang, April 27 (KCNA) — U.S. Secretary of State Rice, while
justifying the Iraqi war started by the U.S. recently, blustered that though the information about north Korea’s nuclear program is insufficient, the whole world should strongly react to it. These reckless remarks come under fire by a signed commentary of Rodong Sinmun Wednesday.
Her remarks reveal the U.S. efforts to create an international atmosphere for putting pressure upon the DPRK over the nuclear issue and its design for mounting a preemptive attack on it, the commentary observes, and goes on:
Given the fact that Rice is the chief architect of the U.S. foreign policy, her outcries provided the army and the people of the DPRK with an opportunity to clearly reconfirm the Bush administration’s purpose of its policy towards the DPRK.
“Insufficient information about north Korea’s nuclear program” and “the whole world’s strong counter-action” touted by Rice are intended to shift the U.S. blame for having compelled the DPRK to have access to nuclear weapons onto the international community and mobilize multi-national forces for mounting preemptive attacks on it.
To this end, the U.S. imperialist warlike forces worked out “OPLAN 5029-05,” a new concrete version of the existing war scenario against the DPRK, and drew up a “plan to bomb nuclear facilities” in the DPRK and a “plan for blockading its coastal areas and airspace.” This means they are leaving no means untried to stifle the DPRK by preemptive strikes. Their talk about “the whole world’s strong counter-action” is little short of a declaration of a preemptive attack on the DPRK.
The army and people of the DPRK remain undeterred by any outbursts of the U.S. as they are strong in the spirit of independence and pluck. They will pay no heed to “the whole world’s strong counter-action” and so on. Their message to the Uncle Sam is that it may do as it pleases. But the U.S. should bear in mind that the option of a preemptive attack is not its monopoly.
It is the mode of counter-action of the army and people in the DPRK to counter the attack by a stick with a rifle and the rifle firing with artillery firing. The U.S. would be well advised to ponder over the disastrous consequences to be entailed by its preemptive strike at the DPRK.
