Pyongyang, July 18 (KCNA) — Shortly ago, the U.S. 8th Army Command present in south Korea was transferred from Ryongsan of Seoul into Phyongthaek of Kyonggi Province.
Rodong Sinmun Tuesday in a commentary slams the transfer of the U.S. military base as a vicious challenge to the desire of all Koreans to live in harmony in a reunified country as it was motivated by the U.S. imperialist aggressors’ scenario for permanent presence in south Korea.
Their sinister intention is to ignite a war against the north at any cost by reducing the south Korean puppet army into cannon fodder and fanning up the military confrontation between the north and the south, the commentary says, adding:
The U.S. military base, the root cause of disaster of the south Korean people, should not be transferred but removed.
The U.S. calculates that its choice of Phyongthaek in the coastal area as a new base of the U.S. imperialist aggressors present in south Korea is good to massively deploy armed forces through it in contingency and rapidly evacuate it when the situation turns unfavorable.
But this is miscalculation. If the U.S. calculates it can reduce its losses when it takes its aggression forces into the area south of the River Han and prepares to take flight, this is a foolish daydream.
The provocateurs and aggressors can never escape the mercilessly annihilating strikes within the sight of powerful revolutionary Paektusan army no matter where they are located and the U.S. imperialist aggressors present in south Korea will be the primary target of the Korean People’s Army’s strikes once it opens fire.
