Struggle for Peace against War Called for

Pyongyang, April 3 (KCNA) -- The United States is getting frantic in its moves to ignite a war against the DPRK in order to stem the trend of the Korean nation's history toward reconciliation and reunification and realize its ambition for domination over the whole of Korea. In order to shatter the vicious moves of the U.S. imperialists for a war of aggression and bring about steady progress of the era of independent reunification, all the Koreans at home and abroad should wage a vigorous struggle under the banner of peace against war. Rodong Sinmun Monday says this in a signed article. Their ambition to invade the DPRK and dominate the whole of Korea remains unchanged and is becoming all the more pronounced than ever before, the article notes, and goes on:
The U.S. Korea policy is a hostile policy and a criminal policy for a war of aggression. The U.S. imperialists' moves for a war against the DPRK have always been frantic. Their dangerous and brigandish nature has reached the worst phase since Bush came to power. Since the outset of office his bellicose group has systematically escalated its moves against the DPRK, extremely antagonizing it and listing it as a target of preemptive nuclear attack. The U.S is now persisting in its campaign to do harm to the DPRK and pressurize it while barring the six-party talks from resuming. This is, in fact, aimed at inventing a pretext to provoke a war against the DPRK. To struggle against the outside forces' moves for aggression and war under the banner of peace against war is a sacred duty of the Korean nation to achieve the independent national reunification.
An atmosphere of peace is a prerequisite to independent national reunification. Dialogue and war exercises can never go together. If ceaseless joint military exercises with foreign forces are allowed to go on in south Korea against fellow countrymen as now, it is impossible to hold north-south dialogue nor is it possible to expect any desired results from the talks to be held by the north and the south in an atmosphere of mutual distrust and confrontation.
It is the habitual method of the U.S. imperialists to chill the ardent desire of the Korean nation for reunification and obstruct the cause of national reunification through the moves for a war against the DPRK. By escalating such provocative war maneuvers on the Korean Peninsula in particular, they seek to deter the north-south relations from favorably improving and keep the movement for national reunification from making progress.
The Korean nation should never allow them to go on with their reckless war exercises to invade the DPRK.
