U.S. Dangerous Sabre-rattling against DPRK Condemned

Korean Central News Agency of DPRK

    Pyongyang, March 22 (KCNA) -- As reported, the U.S. bellicose forces today launched large-scale war maneuvers against the DPRK, a combination of the "Reception, Staging, Onward Movement and Integration" (RSOI) and "Foal Eagle" joint military exercise with the front area of south Korea as an operational theatre. Rodong Sinmun Monday says in a signed commentary in this regard: RSOI and "Foal Eagle" are an open challenge to the whole Korean nation and the world peace-loving people desirous of detente and peace on the Korean peninsula as they are one more dangerous military provocation to the DPRK.
    Disclosing the offensive nature and danger of these plays with fire against the north evidenced by their scale, contents and methods involved, the commentary terms these joint military exercises a test nuclear war and a preliminary war against the DPRK as they are designed to make a preemptive attack on it.
    It continues:
    No sooner had the second round of the six-way talks closed than the U.S. announced its plan to stage large-scale war maneuvers against the DPRK in the sky, land and waters of south Korea. This clearly indicates that though the U.S. is talking about "dialogue" and "peace," it is, in fact, working hard to swallow up the DPRK by force of arms.
    It is nobody's secret that the U.S. has already worked out a "New Operation Plan-5026", a new dangerous war scenario for invading the DPRK. A dialogue can never go with a war maneuver.
    The danger of a nuclear war cannot be removed from the Korean peninsula nor can peace be preserved there as long as the U.S. persists in its moves to start a nuclear war against the DPRK in a bid to stifle it by force of arms. The DPRK will not remain a mere on-looker to these developments. Strength is not a monopoly of the United States.
