Rodong Sinmun Terms U.S., S. Korean Authorities Arch Criminals of Escalated Tension
Pyongyang, June 25 (KCNA) -- All Koreans in the north and the south are living in an unstable situation, neither war nor peace. The U.S. and the south Korean "government" authorities aligned with it are entirely to blame for the tense situation in the Korean Peninsula and the rest of Northeast Asia.

Rodong Sinmun Monday says this in a bylined article.

The U.S. and the Lee Myung Bak group are trumpeting about "provocation" and "threat" from the DPRK louder than ever before in a bid to give impression that they are interested in peace and security on the Korean Peninsula, the article notes, and goes on:

Shortly ago, the U.S. and south Korean puppet forces held the second foreign and defense ministerial talks in Washington. At the talks the warmongers at home and abroad agreed on the joint operation of the anti-missile system to cope with "missile threats" from the DPRK.

The joint statement signed there stipulated the U.S. sustained provision of the "extended nuclear deterrence" to south Korea.

The unprecedented joint maneuvers of warlike forces at home and abroad are projecting the danger of a new war on the Korean Peninsula.

What should not be overlooked is that the U.S., Japan and south Korea are openly staging joint military exercises. This poses a great threat to the DPRK as well as other countries in Northeast Asia.

If the U.S. and Lee group ignite a war of aggression again on this land, the provokers will face more merciless punishment than that in the past war.
