U.S. War Exercises Staged in S. Korea Flayed

    Pyongyang, March 28 (KCNA) -- Foal Eagle and RSOI joint military exercises staged by the U.S. bellicose elements in south Korea were in every respect a military adventure perpetrated to launch military intervention not only against the DPRK but against other countries in the Asia-Pacific region. Rodong Sinmun Monday says this in a signed commentary.
    It goes on:
    These exercises were staged at a time when the moves had been stepped up to reorganize the U.S. troops in south Korea into "task forces operating in the wide region."
    Having chosen the strategy of preemptive attack as the U.S. military doctrine, the U.S. bellicose elements seek to reorganize the U.S. troops in south Korea into the above-said forces aimed at mounting a preemptive attack on the DPRK and maintaining military supremacy in the Asia-Pacific region and thus using them as forces for aggressive preemptive attack to pressurize and contain the countries around Korea by force of arms.
    Precisely for this reason they are massively shipping latest war equipment capable of conducting long-range operations and making long-range strikes into south Korea and areas around it while further tightening the military alliance between the U.S. and south Korea and between the U.S. and Japan.
    The U.S. reckless and undisguised policy aimed at military domination and its military exercises are seriously threatening peace and stability in the Korean Peninsula and the rest of Northeast Asia and extremely straining the situation there.
    All these facts clearly prove that the United States is chiefly to blame for the mounting tensions on the Korean peninsula and the rest of Northeast Asia.
    But for the U.S. military occupation of south Korea, its arms build-up and threat of nuclear preemptive attack, the nuclear issue would have not surfaced on the Korean peninsula, the political structure in Northeast Asia would not have become complicated nor would the situation have become so tense as today.
    The U.S. bellicose elements should give up their ambition to stifle the DPRK by force and stop seeking criminal military domination over the Asia-Pacific region.
