Ulterior Aims of S. Korean Authorities Laid Bare

Pyongyang, October 19 (KCNA) -- Rodong Sinmun on Friday in a bylined article discloses the ulterior aims sought by the south Korean authorities in spreading the fiction about "provocation from the north".

It says:

The anti-DPRK racket kicked off by the south Korean puppet regime under the signboard of "provocation from the north" is nothing but a sinister ploy to justify its "policy toward the north" and escalate the confrontation with the north.

Whenever it found itself in a serious ruling crisis, the puppet regime sought a way out of it in loudly trumpeting about "provocation" from the north and escalating the anti-DPRK campaign. This is a trite trick of the conservative forces of south Korea.

It is their calculation to justify their confrontation policy by floating the story about "provocation from the north" and thus evade the responsibility for the collapse of the north-south relations and, at the same time, secure a justification for escalating the confrontation racket.

Pursuant to this scenario, the Lee Myung Bak regime orchestrated such an extremely dangerous provocation as firing bullets and shells at foreign fishing boats under the pretext of "the north's repeated trespassing on the northern limit line" and is now becoming evermore vociferous about "provocation from the north" in a bid to build public opinion on it.

The anti-DPRK campaign is nothing but a sinister move to turn the situation before the upcoming "presidential election" favorable for them through fabrication of a new "north wind" and realize their wild ambition to stay in power.

Growing stronger in south Korea at present are voices calling for the punishment of the Lee conservative regime with this election drawing closer.

The story about "provocation from the north" spread by the puppet group these days is nothing but a crafty intention to create a security crisis and mislead public opinion under the pretext of the new "north wind" and thus garner votes in the election.

The Lee group would be well advised to apologize to the nation for all its crimes committed against it and step down without delay instead of working hard to prolong its remaining days through such long bankrupt cheap propaganda.
