U.S. South Korea Madcap Sabre-rattling Denounced

U.S.-South Korea Madcap Joint Sabre-rattling Denounced

Pyongyang - The dangerous large-scale "Ulji Focus Lens" joint military exercise started by the U.S. imperialists together with south Korea under the simulated conditions of an actual war against the north is a grave challenge and an unbearable provocation against the DPRK which stands for dialogue, peace and reunification of the country, says Rodong Sinmun today in a signed commentary.

It goes on:

No sooner had the August 15 function for reunification closed than the U.S. launched a large-scale aggressive war exercise against peace and reunification, the drill aimed to fan up confrontation and a war atmosphere between the fellow countrymen in the north and the south. This proves that the U.S. loudmouthed "dialogue" is nothing but an artifice to mislead the public opinion and it only seeks to escalate the moves for confrontation and war and isolate and stifle the DPRK.

Under what it called "arms buildup plan" the U.S. has recently brought into south Korea from overseas some of its first rapid deployment brigade of the U.S. army equipped with a new type of high performance and ultra-modern precision weapons for their drill of getting familiar with its local conditions. It announced even the extremely adventurous "operation plan 5030" aimed at invading the DPRK, driving the situation to the brink of a war.

The "Ulji Focus Lens" joint military drill brought the U.S. wild ambition to invade the DPRK into bold relief.

No one can vouch that the U.S.-launched dangerous war exercise will not lead to an actual war. If the U.S. keeps to the road of confrontation and war, refusing to give up its wild ambition to invade the DPRK, the latter will have no option but to take corresponding strong self-defense measures.

The south Korean authorities should bear in mind that if they go reckless, cooperating with the outside forces in their moves to exterminate the Korean nation, they would get nothing but the nation's curse and denunciation.
