Joint Military Exercises to Be Staged in S. Korea

Pyongyang, July 26 (KCNA) -- The U.S. imperialists and the south Korean puppet warmongers announced that they would stage Ulji Freedom Guardian joint military exercises from August 16 to 26, according to south Korea's Yonhap News.

They, caught by war fever, scheme to hurl into the forthcoming exercises more huge armed forces than the preceding exercises, asserting that the exercises are "part of the counteractions to the north's attack on warship 'Cheonan'" and they are intended to "increase the alliance capacity."

UFG has been so far conducted under the baton of the south Korean puppet army, with more than 10,000 effectives of the U.S. forces involved.

But the forthcoming exercises will be staged under the baton of the south Korea-U.S. "Combined Forces Command", with at least 30,000 U.S. troops stationed in south Korea and overseas and a large number of south Korean puppet troops involved.

The warmongers already launched the frantic joint naval exercises in the East Sea of Korea under the pretext of the case of sunk warship "Cheonan" and are going to stage another exercises aimed at invasion of the DPRK. Such military provocations evidently show what was the real intention sought by the U.S. and the Lee Myung Bak group of traitors in cooking up the anti-DPRK conspiratorial case.
