KPA Supreme Command Orders All Its Servicepersons to Be Fully Combat Ready

Pyongyang, March 9 (KCNA) -- The Supreme Command of the Korean People's Army released the following report on Monday as regards the madcap Key Resolve and Foal Eagle joint military exercises for aggression kicked off by the gangster-like U.S. imperialists and the warmongers of the puppet military of south Korea:

The joint military exercises to be staged from March 9 to 20 will reportedly involve more than 26,000 U.S. imperialist aggression troops present in south Korea and overseas and hundreds of thousands of troops including the army corps, fleet command and units as big as flying corps of the puppet army of south Korea, super-large nuclear-powered carrier George Washington and Stennis task force of the U.S. imperialist aggressor navy made up of four Aegis cruisers, seven destroyers and nuclear-powered subs.

Prior to the exercises, the U.S. imperialists brought 12 F-16 fighter bombers and more than 400 air force personnel to the Suwon air force base in south Korea from their mainland earlier than scheduled and deployed dozens of overseas-based various type aircraft including fighter bombers, pursuit assault planes, electronic jamming planes and refueling tankers in the Osan and Kunsan air force bases.

B-52Hs, B-2As and F-22As have been deployed on Guam and other places around the Korean Peninsula to be ready to promptly go into action.

The U.S. imperialists and the warmongers of the south Korean puppet military more than doubled the period of the exercises as compared with that last year.

The exercises are something unprecedented in the number of the aggressor forces involved and in their duration. They are extremely adventurous ones for attack operation as they are characterized by arms buildup, infiltration into the rear, ground attack, coastal landing and surprise attack operations in contingency on the Korean Peninsula. They are, at the same time, a test war and nuclear war exercises for mounting surprise preemptive attacks on the DPRK from the land, sea and air.

A war will break out if the U.S. imperialists and the warmongers of the south Korean puppet military hurl the huge troops and sophisticated strike means to mount an attack on the DPRK while staging the above-said exercises.

The madcap Key Resolve and Foal Eagle are extremely adventurous and dangerous military provocations which can be seen only on the eve of a war and an undisguised military threat to the DPRK and a sort of a declaration of a war.

The revolutionary armed forces of the DPRK have grown stronger thanks to the Songun politics under the care of the great illustrious commander of Mt. Paektu. They will never remain a passive on-looker to the prevailing situation now that dark clouds of war are gathering to hang over the homeland and armed clashes are imminent.

The KPA Supreme Command issued an order to all the servicepersons to be fully combat ready and follow every move of the aggressors with vigilance in view of the grave situation prevailing in the country and deal merciless retaliatory blows at them, should they intrude into the sky and land and seas of the DPRK even an inch.

This is a just measure for self-defence for protecting the sovereignty and dignity of the nation and Korean-style socialism as firm as an iron wall and a resolute stand and firm will of the strong revolutionary armed forces of Mt. Paektu to cope with the moves of the U.S. and the south Korean puppet warmongers to start a new war.

The army and people of the DPRK love peace and do not want confrontation and war.

Whenever the U.S. and the south Korean puppet authorities staged joint military exercises targeted against the DPRK, it drew their attention to their danger and served them warnings enough to help them understand it, repeatedly urging them to stop their reckless preparations for a war.

They, however, responded to our sincerity by blatant challenge and finally started the said madcap exercises aimed at launching the second Korean war.

All facts go to clearly prove that "stability" and "peace" on the Korean Peninsula touted by the U.S. imperialists are nothing but sophism and they are war maniacs seeking the escalated tension and war only and the arch criminals prodding the north and the south into armed conflicts.

This clearly proves once again that the pro-U.S. conservative group and warmongers of the puppet military of south Korea are a group of traitors seized with confrontation and war hysteria, staking their fate on outsiders in utter disregard of reconciliation and unity among Koreans, peace and reunification.

War maniacs should be dealt with arms, not with words.

Upon receiving the order of the KPA Supreme Command all the servicepersons of the KPA are fully determined to throw overboard the rubbish of history by fully displaying the inexhaustible mental power of the strong revolutionary army of Mt. Paektu and the might of the powerful arms built up under the Songun leadership.

There is no limit to the retaliatory measure of the KPA and no one can predict or evade it.

If the warmongers dare launch a war of aggression defying our repeated warnings, our revolutionary armed forces will counter it with resolute and merciless just war for reunification.
