KPA General Staff Spokesman Blasts Hostile Forces' Anti-DPRK Racket
Pyongyang, April 18 (KCNA) -- As already clarified, the Korean People's Army will consider sanctions to be applied against the DPRK under various names over its satellite launch or any pressure to be put upon it through "total participation" in the PSI as a declaration of undisguised confrontation and a declaration of a war against the DPRK.

A spokesman for the General Staff of the Korean People's Army declared this in an answer given to a question put by KCNA on April 18 denouncing the Lee Myung Bak group of traitors for doing evils over the DPRK's launch of the satellite for peaceful purposes.

The news that the DPRK scientists and technicians correctly put the satellite Kwangmyongsung-2 into orbit at one go by a multi-stage carrier rocket Unha-2 is being unanimously praised and hailed not only by all the Koreans in the north and the south and abroad but by progressive humankind, stirring up the world, the spokesman said, and went on:

It is only the U.S. and Japanese aggressors and the Lee Myung Bak group of traitors that are making uproar over the DPRK's successful satellite launch as if a nuclear bomb had been dropped over their own lands and kicking up an unprecedented anti-DPRK racket, raising a hue and cry over the violation of a UN resolution, sanctions and the like.

The Lee group of traitors is so hateful as to take the lead in such racket in particular.

It found itself frustrated in the racket it kicked up after dispatching even a destroyer of the puppet navy in a bid to intercept the DPRK's satellite together with interceptor warships of the U.S. and Japanese aggressor forces. This group is unhesitatingly revealing its sinister intention not to rule out even a war, setting in motion even the bellicose elements of the puppet military to cry out for sending a strong and unanimous worldwide message to the DPRK and blustering that a practical pressure would be put upon the DPRK through south Korea's "total participation" in the PSI.

It is a far-fetched logic of traitor Lee Myung Bak and the bellicose elements of the puppet military that either a satellite launch or a rocket launch is a violation.

There are not a few countries in the world that launched satellites.

But none of them has put a satellite into space by blowing, instead of using a rocket.

The group of traitors is ridiculously asserting that the satellite launches by its masters U.S. and Japan do not pose any problem but the one launched by the DPRK where its fellow countrymen live is problematic. This is nothing but vituperation and sophism which can be let loose only by traitors steeped in flunkeyism and submission to the marrows of their bones.

The Lee group should have sincerely hailed the admirable event to be proud of in the history of the nation as it demonstrated the dignity and wisdom of the nation to the world. It is, however, working hard to stifle fellow countrymen in collusion with outsiders, the sworn enemies of the Korean nation. This is an unpardonable crime against the nation, reunification and peace.

Now that the group officially declared confrontation and war against the DPRK, its revolutionary armed forces will opt for increasing the nation's defence capability including nuclear deterrent in every way, without being bound to the agreement adopted at the six-party talks.

The army of the DPRK has never pinned any hope on the six-party talks from their outset but closely followed the moves of the U.S. and Japanese aggressors and the Lee group of traitors.

The revolutionary armed forces of the DPRK are always keeping themselves fully ready to go into action any moment to mercilessly punish anyone who encroaches upon the sovereignty and dignity of the DPRK even a bit.

There is no limit to the strike to be made by the revolutionary armed forces of the DPRK.

The Lee group of traitors should never forget that Seoul is just 50 km away from the Military Demarcation Line.

The persistent anti-DPRK confrontational racket kicked up by the group over the DPRK's satellite launch will only bring disgrace and destruction to it.
