Pyongyang, March 27 (KCNA) — The U.S. imperialists are staging RSOI and “Foal Eagle” large-scale joint military exercises in south Korea under the simulated conditions of an “emergency” on the Korean Peninsula despite the strong opposition of the public opinion in Korea and other parts of the world.
In this regard Rodong Sinmun Monday in a signed commentary observes: The on-going war exercises are aimed at threatening and pressurizing the DPRK by force of arms and bringing the situation on the Korean Peninsula to the brink of war.
The U.S. is making poor excuses to veil the danger and gravity of this saber-rattling against the DPRK. These war exercises once again clearly indicate that the U.S. loud-mouthed “peaceful settlement of the nuclear issue” and “talks” are nothing but hypocrisy to deceive the public opinion at home and abroad and it is invariably pursuing confrontation and war.
RSOI and “Foal Eagle” are a test nuclear war, a preliminary war against the DPRK in view of its scale, nature and contents. Nuclear-powered carrier “Abraham Lincoln” is involved in these war maneuvers for the first time. It was active in the military operations against Iraq. Its operation in the East Sea of Korea for the current war maneuvers discloses the real intention of the U.S. imperialists to ignite a nuclear war on the Korean Peninsula at any cost.
These war exercises are fraught with the increasing danger as they started right after the U.S. published the new “national security strategy report” in which it re-clarified the “strategy for preemptive attack” as a state policy.
Now that the U.S. has revealed its clear objective to seize the DPRK, its dialogue partner, by force of arms at any cost, in violation of the spirit of the September 19 joint statement in which it committed itself to mutual respect and peaceful co-existence the army and people of the DPRK will strongly react to it with their own traditional mode of actions.
The U.S. should know that a preemptive attack is not its monopoly.
