U.S. Urged to Cancel Its Projected Sabre Rattling

Korean Central News Agency of DPRK via Korea News Service (KNS)

    Pyongyang, March 16 (KCNA) -- The warlike forces of the U.S. and south Korea are expected to stage large-scale joint military exercises with south Korea as their operational theatre. The exercises will be a combination of RSOI aimed at boosting the capability to promptly hurl the U.S. forces in the mainland and overseas into the Korean Peninsula in case of emergency and help them familiarize with the procedures to support the south Korean forces and Foal Eagle exercise to be conducted with main emphasis on a field mobile exercise. Minju Joson Wednesday observes this in a signed commentary. It goes on:
    Nobody can predict when those RSOI and Foal Eagle joint exercises which will mainly involve such military actions as mobile, landing and surprise air raid drills will go over to an actual war.
    This is undeniable given the fact that the U.S. listed the DPRK as "an outpost of tyranny" at the outset of the year and adopted it as a policy not to co-exist with it.
    A crisis on the Korean peninsula is inevitable as the U.S. is persistently working to carry out its policy to bring down the system in the DPRK and its line of war of aggression against the DPRK.
    We desire peace but never beg for it. It is the faith and will of our army and people to emerge victorious in the confrontation with the U.S. and give vent to the pent-up grudge of the nation at any cost should a war break out on the Korean Peninsula.
    The bellicose forces of the U.S. and south Korea should cogitate about the serious consequences to be entailed by their rash war moves and cancel at once their plan for the saber rattling.
    The U.S. demonstration of its military muscle will never work on the DPRK.
