KCNA Flails Entry of Kitty Hawk into S. Korea

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

    Pyongyang, March 16 (KCNA) -- U.S. carrier Kitty Hawk entered Pusan Port in south Korea on Mar. 14 to participate in south Korea-U.S. joint military exercises, according to a news report. The Kitty Hawk task force was escorted by six cruisers and destroyers.
    The carrier, backbone of the U.S. naval flying units, can accommodate 60 aircraft including F-18 Super Hornet and thousands of personnel.
    The U.S. is mobilizing not only its forces in south Korea but its elite units in its mainland and overseas and nuclear strike means including Kitty Hawk for large-scale war exercises to be staged under the simulated conditions of "an emergency" on the Korean Peninsula. This can not but be a very dangerous development.
    The U.S. can not deny the fact that the portcall of the nuclear-powered carrier is a prelude to the war of aggression against the DPRK, when recalling the historical fact that it has always dispatched carrier flotilla to waters off a certain country before launching a war of aggression against that country.
    This goes to prove that the second-term Bush administration's hostile policy toward the DPRK which it had designated as an "outpost of tyranny" has reached the phase of a real war, after going beyond the phase of military pressure.
    The DPRK policy pursued by the U.S. now has been focused on creating an environment favorable for igniting a nuclear war against it and securing leverage for putting pressure upon it.
    The U.S. seeks to finally round off its preparations for a Korean war by staging large-scale joint military exercises in south Korea after massing huge forces in areas around the Korean Peninsula.
    The U.S. loud-mouthed talk about "a peaceful solution to the nuclear issue" and "six-party talks" is nothing but a red herring and its policy to invade the DPRK remains unchanged.
    The U.S. is talking about "dialogue" while leveling a gun at its dialogue partner after dispatching even the carrier flotilla. This clearly reveals its gangster-like intention to force the DPRK to disarm itself and topple it in the end.
    The DPRK has already clarified its principled stand that it would not refuse to participate in the six-party talks if the U.S. retracts its vituperation against the dialogue partner and behaves to win his trust.
    However, the U.S. responded to the DPRK's just demand with the large-scale nuclear war exercises.
    This is an outright challenge to the sincere efforts exerted by the international community and parties concerned as well as the DPRK for a negotiated peaceful solution to the nuclear issue and a perfidy to them.
    The reality irrefutably proves that the U.S. is entirely to blame for having escalated the nuclear crisis on the Korean Peninsula and driven the situation there to an extreme phase of confrontation and war.
    A military action can never go together with dialogue. The U.S. should clearly understand that its negotiating logic that "diplomatic persuasion can prove successful only when it is backed by military counteraction" and American style diplomatic doctrine that "war is the best diplomacy" can never work on the DPRK.
    The DPRK can never remain an on-looker to such military actions of the U.S. behind the scene of the six-party talks.
    The U.S. had better clearly understand who its rival is.
