Minju Joson on Danger of War in Korea

   Pyongyang, August 22 (KCNA) -- The joint military exercises "Ulji Focus Lens", a product of the U.S. ambition for invasion of the DPRK, indicate that the U.S. moves to stifle the DPRK are going over to the phase of using force from the phase of economic blockade, says Minju Joson today in a signed commentary. The exercises may go over to an all-out nuclear war against the DPRK any moment as they are now under way according to the "OPLAN 5027", the key point of which is to mount a preemptive attack on the DPRK with nukes, the commentary warns, and says:
    The U.S. intention is to weaken the DPRK through economic blockade and swallow it up by force. What is serious is that the south Korean authorities are zealously joining the U.S. in its moves to provoke a war against the DPRK. This tells that they are going against the June 15 joint declaration.
    Recently, inter-Korean ministerial talks were deadlocked and projects for humanitarian aid suspended due to the south Korean authorities' servile attitude toward the U.S. to deteriorate the north-south relations.
    It is a wild daydream for the U.S. to seize the DPRK by force. The army and people of the DPRK are keeping sharp eyes on the U.S. war moves and will never allow the aggressors to intrude into the sky, land and waters of the DPRK even an inch. The U.S. should stop the adventurous war exercises against the DPRK at once and the south Korean authorities should stop depending on outsiders and take the road of national independence, though belatedly.
