Rodong Sinmun Terms UFG Prelude to New War
|Pyongyang, September 3 (KCNA) -- The Ulji Freedom Guardian joint military exercises staged by the U.S. and the south Korean puppet forces were reckless maneuvers to ignite the second Korean War.
Rodong Sinmun Monday says this in a bylined article.
The article explains the reason why the recent saber-rattling was actual maneuvers for invading the DPRK and a curtain raiser to a new war.
A few years ago the number of the U.S. forces involved in the UFG was far less than that mobilized this year, the article says, adding:
But the recent war maneuvers involved more than 30 000-strong U.S. forces, 56 000-strong south Korean forces and hundreds of thousands of civilians of south Korea.
Those exercises were very likely to turn into an actual war in view of their nature, programs, scale and duration.
It is the strategic goal of the U.S. to contain the DPRK by force of arms by provoking another Korean War and, furthermore, establish a military domination over Asia.
The U.S. imperialists have steadily reinforced strategic weapons including nukes around the Korean Peninsula while staging madcap war maneuvers targeted against the DPRK with south Korean puppet forces and troops of their allies involved in a bid to ignite a new war on the peninsula at any cost.
It is under this scenario that the U.S. is stoking the inter-Korean confrontation and driving the DPRK-U.S. hostile relations to the worst phase while deliberately straining the situation on the peninsula.
The U.S. and the south Korean puppet forces seek to provoke the DPRK through war drills but with nothing can they browbeat its army and people.
The U.S. would be well advised to coolly face up to the situation and drop its foolish scenario to contain the DPRK by force. If the U.S pushes the situation on the peninsula to an extreme phase despite the warnings of the DPRK, it will face a strong counter-action of Korean style, warns the article.
