S. Korean Authorities' War Drills against DPRK under Fire
Pyongyang, February 27 (KCNA) -- Key Resolve and Foal Eagle joint military drills are scheduled from late February to late April in south Korea with more than 200 000 troops of U.S. imperialist aggressor forces and the south Korean puppet army and huge latest war hardware involved. And the biggest joint landing exercises of the U.S. and south Korean marines are set to be staged in and around Phohang in March in 23 years. The joint landing drills had been part of the Team Spirit joint military exercises.

Rodong Sinmun Monday says this in a bylined article.

The drills reveal once again the warlike nature of the Lee Myung Bak group of traitors intent on provoking a war against the DPRK and bringing it down by force of arms through military nexus with the U.S., the article says, and goes on:

The war drills reflect the deep rooted ambition of the south Korean puppet group and its desperate attempt to escape from ruin.

The Lee group plunged south Korea still deeper into the U.S. in political, military and economic dependence through matchless sycophantic and treacherous politics. It also mercilessly violated not only the democratic freedom and rights of the people but also their right to existence with fascist dictatorship.

The south Korean ruling forces are being shaken to their very foundation by south Korean people's unflinching struggle to smash the sycophantic, anti-reunification and unpopular moves of the traitors and achieve the right to existence and democracy.

Much upset by this, the Lee group is trying to find a way out from it in military provocation campaign against the fellow countrymen in the north. Through the military exercises the group plans to escalate tension, divert public attention and turn the "election"-related political situation in its favor by clamoring about "security crisis".

But it will only bring ruin to it. The history clearly showed what a miserable fate awaited the traitors who betrayed the nation and ran reckless to stoke confrontation with the fellow countrymen.
