    Pyongyang, March 18 (KCNA) -- The United States brought to south Korea a carrier flotilla, a nuclear strike force, and other forces after announcing a plan for large-scale combined war exercises aimed to invade the DPRK at a time when the nuclear issue between the DPRK and the U.S. has reached an extreme phase. This reveals its hostile attempt to threaten and stifle the DPRK by force of arms at any cost. It is a criminal act against peace and the nation as it is driving the situation on the Korean Peninsula to the brink of a war. Rodong Sinmun Friday says this in a signed commentary. It goes on:
    What should not be overlooked is that the south Korean authorities are following and colluding with the U.S. in its frantic moves to ignite a nuclear war against the DPRK.
    They are unhesitatingly joining the U.S. in its dangerous play with fire aimed at aggravating the military confrontation on the Korean Peninsula and pushing the inter-Korean relations to the phase of catastrophe in disregard of the interests of the nation and in violation of the June 15 joint declaration, not away from flunkeyism towards the U.S. and submission to it.
    The nuclear stand-off between the DPRK and the U.S. has reached an extreme phase and the latter is working hard to launch a nuclear war against the DPRK at any cost, taking advantage of this. This being a hard reality, the south Korean authorities are joining the U.S. in its large-scale combined war exercises to invade the DPRK, challenging the unanimous desire of the nation for peace and reunification. This is intolerable because this means becoming war servants for outsiders to kill their fellow countrymen and colluding with them in their nuclear war to destroy the inviolable territory of Korea.
    The south Korean authorities should abandon their servility to the U.S. and the anti-north confrontational stand and stop at once their reckless collusion with it in its war moves.
