U.S. Forces in S. Korea Stage Evacuation Drill of Noncombatants

    Pyongyang, November 4 (KCNA) -- The U.S. forces in south Korea staged an exercise of evacuating noncombatants to Japan allegedly to cope with a contingency, according to the south Korean KBS. They evacuated noncombatants including GI families to the U.S. air base in Iwakuni of Japan by clippers and by air on Oct. 28 and brought them back to south Korea two days later. This was disclosed by "The Stars and Stripes" published by the U.S. Department of Defense.
    The recent drill was staged at a time when the U.S. is holding a war confab with the south Korean trigger-happy elements after working out "OPLAN 5027-04", a new war scenario to mount a preemptive nuclear attack on the north. This clearly indicates that the U.S. preparations for a war of aggression have already reached a final phase.
    The U.S. should stop at once such reckless war moves designed to chill the atmosphere of the forthcoming 5th six-party talks.
