KPA Command Order Army to Keep High Alert

Pyongyang, March 8 (KCNA) -- The Supreme Command of the Korean People's Army released the following report on Monday as regards the kick-off of the Key Resolve and Foal Eagle joint military exercises for aggression by the U.S. imperialists and the south Korean puppet forces:

In a statement already issued, a spokesman for the General Staff of the Korean People's Army strongly demanded the U.S. imperialists and the south Korean puppet warmongers stop at once the projected criminal and reckless Key Resolve and Foal Eagle joint military exercises, branding them as war exercises for aggression, test nuclear war maneuvers aimed at mounting a preemptive surprise attack on the DPRK.

Nevertheless, the U.S. imperialists and the south Korean puppet forces finally launched the joint military exercises for aggression on March 8, defying this just demand of the DPRK.

Pursuant to the emergency order issued that day, huge armed forces of the U.S. imperialist aggressor troops stationed in south Korea and other overseas bases started to move and the troops of the three services of the puppet forces, local administrative organs, the "Homeland Defense Reserve Forces", the "Civilian Defense Corps", police and military and civilian enterprises of south Korea are ready to go into action all at once.

Prior to the start of these war maneuvers, the U.S. imperialists deployed many groups of warships including guided-missile destroyers, nuclear-powered submarines and dock landing craft in the east, west and south seas of Korea, and these groups are ready to stage combined naval maneuvers, landing operation exercises and exercises for countering maritime intrusion in coordinated operations with the first, second and third fleets of the south Korean puppet navy.

Fighter-bombers and pursuit-assault planes are flying into south Korea one after another from their bases in Japan, and flying corps of the U.S. 7th Air Force present in south Korea are staging madcap exercises for intensive strikes at targets in the depth of the DPRK, close air support, air battle and naval support in coordinated operations with flying corps of the puppet air force, inciting a war atmosphere.

This evermore undisguised adventurous saber-rattling is creating such tense situation on the Korean Peninsula that a war may break out anytime.

The Supreme Command of the KPA issued the following order to cope with the grave situation prevailing in the country:

1. The men and officers of the KPA on the frontline and coastline and those standing on air guard should reliably defend the outposts of the country so as to repel at a single stroke any attempt of the aggressors to make a preemptive strike.

2. The units of the three services of the KPA should keep themselves fully ready to go into action in order to blow up the citadel of aggressors once the order is issued.

3. All the men and officers of the KPA and the members of the Korean People's Security Forces, the Worker-Peasant Red Guards and the Young Red Guards should undergo intensive training in the spirit of Mt. Paektu in each drill ground with the will to wipe out the enemy and keep themselves highly alerted to mercilessly crush the aggressors should they intrude into the inviolable sky, land and sea of the DPRK even 0.001 mm.

4. All the people across the country should make a great leap forward in the general charge to build a thriving socialist nation, their hearts burning with hatred against the enemies, each holding a rifle in one hand and a hammer or a sickle in the other.

The order of the KPA Supreme Command is the most just measure for self-defence to devotedly protect the headquarters of the revolution and the prosperity of the country and the eternal happiness of the people from the reckless moves of the war maniacs for aggression.

The revolutionary armed forces of the DPRK who regard the dignity and sovereignty of the nation as dearer than their own lives will clearly show what miserable end the U.S. imperialists and the south Korean puppet warmongers will meet if they dare ignite a war of aggression.
