Actions Called for Putting End to Lee Myung Bak Group's Treachery
Pyongyang, March 24 (KCNA) -- The Lee Myung Bak group of traitors will certainly be forced to pay for such hideous acts of treachery as escalating the confrontation with fellow countrymen and running wild to start a war of aggression against the DPRK in collusion with foreign forces, swimming against the trend of the times towards national reconciliation and unity.

Rodong Sinmun Tuesday warns this in a signed article.

Accusing the group of traitors of staging the provocative Key Resolve and Foal Eagle joint military exercises in collusion with foreign forces despite the repeated warnings of the DPRK and all Koreans' strong protest and denunciation, the article stresses it is impossible to improve the relations between the north and the south nor is it possible to achieve lasting peace on the Korean Peninsula and national independence and reunification as long as the group is allowed to stay in power.

Citing facts that the Lee group has blocked reconciliation and cooperation between the compatriots and brought the inter-Korean relations to stalemate quite contrary to the nation's desire for reunification, the article terms the Lee group ferocious warmongers keen to realize the wild ambition for achieving "unification by invading the north," backed by foreign aggressors.

It goes on:

It is due to the adventurous rackets kicked up by the bellicose Lee regime to provoke a war of aggression against the DPRK in collusion with foreign forces that the June 15 era of reunification is facing a blatant challenge and the situation on the Korean Peninsula remains so tense that a war may break out any moment.

It is as clear as a pikestaff that the longer the Lee group stays in power, the further the inter-Korean relations will be strained and the Koreans will suffer a nuclear war disaster in the end.

The Korean nation desirous of national reconciliation and unity and peace and reunification should not tolerate the acts of treachery of the Lee regime going against the times and the desire of the nation.
