Planned War Game Flailed

Pyongyang, March 4 (KCNA) -- The U.S. imperialists and bellicose forces of the south Korean military announced that they would stage the RSOI and Foal Eagle, large-scale joint military exercises, from March 19 to 25, according to the south Korean KBS.
They declared that those exercises simulating a "contingency" on the Korean Peninsula would involve over 17,000 U.S. troops present in south Korea and overseas as well as the south Korean army.
Special attention should be paid to their announcement that the war rehearsals would draw the carrier Kittyhawk and the task force brigade from the U.S. mainland.
When making public the plan the warhawks openly hinted that they would repeat in the projected exercises nearly all the actions of last year's maneuvers in which they pressed close to the eve of a war, going beyond common sense. The aggressive nature of the war games is accentuated by the expected involvement of the task force brigade which has been knocked together as a link of the whole chain of the reorganization of the U.S. forces for aggression on the Korean Peninsula.
The United States branded the DPRK as an "outpost of tyranny" at the beginning of the year, making it its policy never to coexist with the latter. Now it is throwing away the mask of "dialogue" and "peace", revealing its aggressive nature again.
