Rodong Sinmun Calls for Putting End to Lee Group's Moves to Escalate Confrontation of Social Systems
Pyongyang, October 2 (KCNA) -- Rodong Sinmun Tuesday in a bylined article calls for putting an end to the south Korean Lee Myung Bak regime's confrontation of the social systems.

The confrontation of the social systems is the root cause of the collapse of the north-south relations, the article says, and goes on:

The north-south relations that had favorably developed were brought to a collapse entirely because the Lee Myung Bak group enforced the ill-famed confrontation policy of "no nukes, opening and 3 000 dollars" in denial of the inter-Korean declarations after it came to power.

The Lee group's desperate moves for the confrontation of the social systems put the inter-Korean relations into the worst phase of collapse without any dialogue and cooperation.

This confrontation is bound to trigger off a military standoff.

The Lee group has worked hard to realize its ambition through military provocations and threat, taking an extreme hostile approach towards the ideology and social system in the DPRK. The "Cheonan" warship sinking case and the Yonphyong Island shelling incident broke out due to this wild ambition.

The group's moves to escalate the confrontation of the social systems are main hurdle in the way of achieving national reconciliation and unity and improving the north-south relations.

As long as the Lee group is allowed to stay in power, the north-south relations can never get rid of the abyss of collapse.

The root cause of misfortune should be removed in good time and poisonous plants be rooted out without fail.

To wage a nation-wide struggle for foiling the Lee group's moves and severely punish the horde of traitors is the only way for bringing about a new phase in independent reunification.

The conservative forces in south Korea are making desperate efforts to stay in power with the "presidential election" close at hand.

The south Korean people suffered too much under the rule of the Lee group. The confrontation maniacs should no longer be allowed to stay in power. The tragic history of north-south standoff should not be allowed to repeat itself.
