Rodong Sinmun Blasts Projected U.S.-S. Korea Military Exercises

Pyongyang, February 20 (KCNA) -- The U.S. and the south Korean bellicose forces are going to stage again provocative joint military exercises Key Resolve and Foal Eagle. This saber-rattling will also involve a large scale Ssangryong joint landing drill.

Rodong Sinmun Monday observes in a bylined article in this regard:

The announcement of the Key Resolve and Foal Eagle clearly proves that the U.S. and the south Korean authorities are the wrecker of peace and the arch criminal escalating the tensions on the Korean Peninsula, the article notes, and goes on:

The U.S. military presence and domination over south Korea are the main source of military confrontation and tensions on the peninsula and a wanton violation of the sovereignty of the Korean nation.

The ceaseless joint military exercises which the south Korean conservative group is staging together with outsiders are a clear manifestation of their invariable ambition to invade the DPRK.

The joint military exercises projected by it at a time when the Korean people are still grieving over their great loss are acts of treachery unimaginable for the Koreans.

It is entirely thanks to the powerful war deterrent built by the DPRK and its firm will to defend peace that no war has broken out despite reckless saber-rattling on the part of the U.S. and the south Korean warmongers.

If the war-like forces at home and abroad ignite a war, misjudging the DPRK's will for defending peace, they will perish in the flames kindled by themselves.
