    Pyongyang, March 15 (KCNA) -- Bell, commander of the U.S. forces in south Korea, at a hearing of the U.S. Senate Armed Services Committee some time ago let out a shameless sophism that the military power of north Korea poses a serious and constant threat to the security of south Korea and other U.S. allied countries and Northeast Asia. Commenting on it, Minju Joson today says:
    Describing the DPRK military power for defending peace and security of the Korean Peninsula as a "threat" is a distortion of reality and an intolerable provocation against the DPRK.
    The United States is the real threatening force which coils up the situation of the Korean Peninsula and the area surrounding it and increases the danger of war. After the Second World War the United States occupied south Korea by force of arms and provoked the war against the north. For scores of years after the war it has consistently kicked up war rackets against the DPRK. Its moves to invade the DPRK are now getting evermore pronounced under the pretext of the "relocation" and "strategic flexibility" of the U.S. troops in south Korea.
    The U.S. imperialists are instigating the south Korean army to confrontation with the fellow countrymen, while stepping up their preparations for armed invasion of the DPRK.
    The U.S. imperialist warmongers persistently distort the reality and mislead public opinion to slander the self-reliant military power of the DPRK. It is their constant and ulterior intention to ignite a war against the DPRK at any cost and occupy the Korean Peninsula.
    If a nuclear war breaks out in the peninsula, the Korean nation will be the first to suffer disasters. Therefore, the fellow countrymen in the north and the south of Korea should turn out as one to prevent a war of aggression and the U.S. imperialists should repeal its hostile policy towards the DPRK without delay.
