Failed "Offensives" of US Imperialists in Korean War

Pyongyang, July 26 (KCNA) -- In the period of the Fatherland Liberation War (June 1950-July 1953), the U.S. imperialists resorted to every sort of desperate plots and attempts to make up for repeated defeats they suffered from the first period of the war.
They mobilized elite divisions which were armed with modern combat and technical equipment and well "experienced" in a number of aggression wars, and inveigled even forces of its fifteen satellite countries into the war.
They, availing themselves of their numerical and technical superiority over the Korean People's Army, launched a "summer offensive" in August 1951, but met with a setback.
Later, they staged an "autumn offensive", called "command operation", but it was also doomed to failure, confronted by a heroic fight of the KPA.
After failing in ensuing attempts such as "suffocation operation", "scorched-land operation" and "Kimhwa offensive" they prepared a new offensive, "Eisenhower Offensive", in 1953 in the hope of retrieving themselves from a series of defeats.
As part of the offensive, they organized a battle on Jonghyong Hill as a "model battle" by mobilizing forces much more than defensive forces of the KPA.
Their failure to occupy the hill, however, augured the ruin of the offensive.
The same held true for other offensives they unleashed afterward.
