Projected DPRK-targeted Joint Military Exercises Blasted

Pyongyang, March 1 (KCNA) -- Key Resolve and Foal Eagle joint military exercises to be staged by the U.S. imperialists and the south Korean puppet army from March 8 to 18 are a dangerous large-scale test war from A to Z as they are aimed to provoke an all-out nuclear war and bring down the DPRK by force of arms.

Rodong Sinmun Monday observes this in a signed commentary.

It goes on:

The warmongers are talking about "annual exercises" and "improvement of defense capability" when referring to the joint maneuvers, but they are nothing but hypocrisy to mislead the public opinion at home and abroad.

Key Resolve is aimed to ensure the rapid introduction and deployment of the U.S. reinforcements on the Korean front in "emergency" and to perfect the procedures for coordinated operations with the puppet army.

Foal Eagle is typical offensive exercises to launch an all-out war against the DPRK through large-scale "preemptive nuclear attacks".

The joint war exercises are so aggressive and provocative that with no rhetoric can the United States and warmongers of the south Korean military justify them no matter how desperately they may let loose a spate of such rubbish as "annual exercises" and "defense".

We can never remain a passive onlooker to this grave situation created on the Korean Peninsula by the aggression forces against the DPRK.

Our answer to the exercises is merciless and annihilating retaliation. If the United States and south Korean puppets launch the joint military exercises, ignoring our warnings, we will react to them with our powerful military counteraction to clearly show the aggressors how merciless and decisive our sacred retaliation war for justice is, the commentary concludes.
