Pyongyang, September 18 (KCNA) -- The south Korean puppet forces are stepping up military show-down with the DPRK after creating the touch-and-go situation on the Korean Peninsula by staging joint military drill Ulji Freedom Guardian.

They staged coordinated firepower combat drill in Phochon, Kyonggi Province on September 13 with the involvement of motorized unit of the ground force and air force.

Involved there were more than 1 500 troops of 17 units and over 130 war means of 15 kinds including tank, armed car, airplane, MLRS and gunship.

The warmongers held demonstration firing exercise of all firepower weapons and let the 7th corps specializing in mobile operations wage attack operation and firing drill.

They even organized the watch of the drill by military personnel of various countries, citizens in Kyonggi Province and even students of primary, secondary and high schools, fanning up anti-DPRK war hysteria.

The puppet forces are frequently holding the DPRK-targeted war drills with increasing intensity despite the warnings issued by the DPRK several times.

The UFG was followed by the big mobile drill and drill for coping with local provocation by the 7th and 17th divisions of the ground force, ground exercises in the area of Phaju City, Kyonggi Province by ground force units early in September.

There was also a firing drill by the marine corps in the area of Yonphyong Island on September 12 with the involvement of mortar and machine gun.

The 8th corps clarified that it will hold anti-infiltration joint drill in Ryongdong area of south Korean Kangwon Province on September 18 and 19.

The warmongers are coming out with the "basic plan for national defense reform 12 -30" while crying out for "structural reform" to cope with "changed security environment".

The core of the plan is to round off the puppet forces' offensive structure, develop and deploy missiles for "striking north's nuclear facilities and missile bases and other core facilities" and drastically beef up ultra-modern attack weapons.

The military moves of the Lee Myung Bak regime constitute a dangerous seed of a war as they are aimed to increase the capacity for preemptive attack and ignite a new war on the Korean Peninsula at any cost.

It was quite just for the southwestern front command of the Korean People's Army to release a press release under the prevailing situation.

The revolutionary armed forces of the DPRK are now on high alert to launch an over-all counter attack to promptly retaliate against the enemies and achieve the great cause of national reunification.

The will of the army and people to devotedly safeguard the country is running high.

The warmongers will meet destruction if they dare preempt.
