Hoguk War Exercises Assailed
Pyongyang, November 10 (KCNA) -- The Hoguk exercises staged by the south Korean puppet military together with the marines of the U.S. imperialist aggression forces with a total of more than 120,000-strong troops and huge modern war means involved were a dangerous DPRK-targeted saber-rattling aimed at mounting a preemptive nuclear strike at the DPRK and stifling it by force of arms, says Rodong Sinmun Monday in a signed commentary.

The Lee Myung Bak group is desperately stepping up military confrontation and the moves to provoke a war against the DPRK pursuant to its foolish ambition to invade the DPRK while negating the historic June 15 joint declaration and the October 4 declaration, great programmes for independent reunification of the nation, the commentary notes, and goes on:

The group is talking nonsense to give impression that it is interested in the development of the north-south relations and the peace of the country while paying lip-service to "dialogue" and "co-existence and co-prosperity". But in fact, it is working with bloodshot eyes to provoke a war against the DPRK while adamantly seeking to stifle the DPRK through confrontation and war.

The inter-Korean relations have reached the worst crisis since the publication of the June 15 joint declaration due to the Lee group's traitorous and anti-reunification racket of confrontation.

However, the puppet warmongers are conducting the large-scale Hoguk exercises simulating the invasion of the north in utter disregard of the destiny of the nation, thus revealing their bellicose design to escalate tension on the Korean Peninsula.

No matter how desperately the puppet warmongers may conduct the large-scale war exercises with the backing of outsiders, the DPRK will never be taken aback by them as it demonstrates its invincible might thanks to the great Songun politics.

The U.S. and the south Korean puppets should not run amuck, clearly understanding that the military provocation and the moves to launch a war of aggression against the DPRK will invite self-destruction.

Only shameful defeat and death await those who pursue confrontation and war.
