CFRK Warns S. Korean Warmongers of Merciless Punishment
Pyongyang, February 20 (KCNA) -- The Secretariat of the Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of Korea Sunday issued information bulletin No. 990 in connection with the plan of the south Korean warmongers to stage a grave military provocation against the DPRK again in the West Sea of Korea.

The information bulletin said:

The enemy side keen on the moves for a war against the DPRK appeared at Panmunjom on Feb. 19 and notified over loudspeaker that it would stage a live shell firing drill targeted against the waters of the DPRK side from Paekryong, Yonphyong and other islands in the West Sea from 10:30 a.m. on Feb. 20.

This is a very dangerous play with fire to ignite a war against the north as it is a clear declaration of war against it.

The U.S. and the south Korean puppet warmongers announced their plan to stage the above-said drill targeted against the waters of the DPRK side again in the wake of their open declaration of the projected large-scale joint military exercises like Key Resolve at a time when the Korean people are still grieving over the big loss to the nation. This fully revealed their true colors as ferocious war maniacs.

Worse still, the puppet group is going to perpetrate such military provocation with U.S. imperialist aggression forces involved after inviting even an international observers group. Lurking behind this scenario are sinister aims to justify their moves for a war against the north, make the existence of the illegal "northern limit line" an established fact, escalate the military tension and draw public attention to it in a bid to reverse the unfavorable trend of the situation with the approach of the election.

This is the last-ditch effort of the Lee Myung Bak group to get rid of the abyss of ruin into which it has been thrown by the total failure of its domestic and foreign policies and the people's rebuff.

The projected saber-rattling of the U.S. and the puppet warmongers more clearly proves who is the wrecker of peace on the Korean Peninsula and the arch criminal responsible for the escalating tension and the deterioration of the inter-Korean relations.

The enemies try to judge our reaction through this military provocation but the answer to them is clear.

If the puppet warmongers preempt reckless firing despite our warning, they will not escape punishment thousands-fold severer than the past Yonphyong Island shelling.

It will also lead to a complete collapse of the inter-Korean relations and invite the most miserable self-destruction of the puppet group.

The issue of how the situation on the Korean Peninsula will develop will entirely depend on the U.S. and the puppet group.

We remain unperturbed in face of any declaration of war and should they come in attack on us, we will beat them.

We are fully prepared for both a local and total war.

The provokers will have to pay a dear price for it.
