Pyongyang, June 3 (KCNA) — The introduction of 15 F-117 Stealth fighter bombers and 250 maintenance personnel into south Korea from the U.S.
mainland proves that the U.S. plan for a preemptive nuclear attack on the DPRK has reached the phase of military action, no longer remaining on its table, says Rodong Sinmun Friday in a signed commentary.
It goes on:
This is little short of a state of emergency as it indicates that the Korean Peninsula is on the eve of a war.
Recently the U.S. ruling quarters did not bother to let loose a string of belligerent remarks pressurizing the DPRK and hinting at a military strike on it, while talking about any “sign of nuclear threat” and “a strategic initiative to cope with the situation after the collapse of the talks” and the like. The U.S. bellicose forces have already worked out “CONPLAN 8022-02” aimed at mounting a preemptive nuclear attack on strategic targets including nuclear facilities of the DPRK and hastened the preparations for its implementation.
It must not go unnoticed that the U.S. brought such dangerous means for nuclear attacks to south Korea at a time when a grand event for national reunification, the function common to the north and the south of Korea, is slated to take place on the occasion of the fifth anniversary of the June 15 joint declaration.
As a matter of fact, the U.S. introduction of the above-said types of bombers has chilled the atmosphere of the June 15 grand festival for national reunification overnight and created such a situation where it is hard to hold such festival.
The United States should pull military hardware including Stealth fighter bombers out of south Korea at once, stop the anti-reunification moves for a war against the DPRK and withdraw its aggression troops from south Korea at an early date.
The south Korean authorities should think twice if they can save their face when they participate in the festival after introducing those bombers into south Korea.
