US-S. Korea Joint Naval Maneuvers Blasted

Pyongyang, July 26 (KCNA) -- The south Korean puppet group at last kicked off anti-DPRK joint naval maneuvers together with the U.S. imperialists under the pretext of "defending" it from somebody's "provocation", but this is no more than a deceptive farce which can convince nobody, Rodong Sinmun says in a signed article Monday.

It goes on:

The group described the DPRK-targeted saber-rattling as "defensive" even though it is getting hell-bent on the racket for confrontation and war against its fellow countrymen in collusion with the U.S. imperialists. This is nothing but rigmarole to cover up the danger of the joint maneuvers, which may render the situation in the Korean Peninsula and its surrounding areas extremely tense and lead it to the brink of war, and justify its frantic anti-DPRK war provocation moves.

The saber-rattling is a prelude to the second Korean War, to all intents and purposes.

What should not go unnoticed here is the danger of the joint exercises now underway in the East Sea of Korea by the U.S. and south Korean warmongers with huge armed forces involved. They are military exercises in word but, in fact, a three-dimensional test war for mounting an all-out attack on the DPRK.

The puppet forces plan to stage at least 10 joint military exercises with the U.S. one after another till the end of this year, including Ulji Freedom Guardian and anti-submarine exercises in the wake of the on-going joint naval maneuvers.

The reality goes to clearly prove that the warlike forces at home and abroad made it a fait accompli to provoke the second Korean War and they can launch the war of aggression against the DPRK any time.

It is quite natural that the domestic and foreign public opinions strongly urge the U.S. and the south Korean authorities to stop the joint naval maneuvers, vehemently denouncing them for bringing dark clouds of a nuclear war to hang over the Korean Peninsula.

They will have to pay a dear price if they persist in the criminal act of harassing peace and security on the peninsula, defying our repeated warnings and turning a deaf ear to the domestic and foreign demand for the settlement of outstanding issues of the peninsula in a peaceful way through direct talks and negotiations.
