S. Korean Warmongers' Unabated Provocative Saber-rattling under Fire
| Pyongyang, March 6 (KCNA) -- A touch-and-go situation is prevailing on the Korean Peninsula due to the U.S. imperialists and the south Korean puppet forces' madcap drills for a nuclear war against the DPRK.
Key Resolve and Foal Eagle, Ulji Freedom Guardian, Hoguk and other joint military exercises staged by the south Korean puppet group in league with the U.S. every year, creating constant danger of war on the Korean Peninsula, were aimed at invading the DPRK. Their purpose was to put OPLAN-5027, OPLAN-5029 and other war scenarios into practice.
Recently, they worked out a scenario for "stabilization operation" which calls for "occupying and ruling" the DPRK and made reckless provocations, crying out for "mounting a preemptive attack on Pyongyang."
At the outset of the year the puppet forces escalated confrontation with the DPRK, malignantly taking issue with its satellite launch for peaceful purposes. In the meantime, they staged ceaseless war exercises targeted against the DPRK.
On Jan. 2 all units under the 3rd field army fired bullets and shells from the area along the Military Demarcation Line. From Jan. 14 to 18 huge forces of 25th, 26th and 30th divisions of the puppet army staged large-scale mobile exercises and field tactical and mobile exercises in Kyonggi Province and Cholwon of south Korean Kangwon Province.
From Jan. 15 to 17 the artillery force of the 2nd division of the U.S. imperialist aggression forces in south Korea and the 7th artillery brigade of the puppet army conducted a live shell firing drill in Ryonchon County, Kyonggi Province.
The 8th and 21st divisions of the puppet army staged military exercises for increasing the capability for mounting a preemptive attack on the DPRK by mobilizing tanks, armored cars and other war hardware in Cholwon of south Korean Kangwon Province and Phochon of Kyonggi Province from Jan. 21 to 25.
The U.S. 7th Air Force and the air force operation command of the puppet army conducted a drill for making preparations for war-time operations from Feb. 12. The puppet navy staged a large-scale maritime mobile drill with dozens of warships involved in the waters of the East and West seas of Korea from Feb. 13. The 2nd artillery brigade of the puppet ground force was busy staging a firepower strike drill in the artillery firing range situated in the central sector of the front in south Korean Kangwon Province from Feb. 15.
The 20th and 55th divisions of the puppet ground force conducted South Han River-crossing drill in Ryoju and Yangphyong areas of Kyonggi Province from Feb. 18 to 22 with huge forces, tanks, artillery pieces and other combat equipment involved while the U.S. imperialist aggression forces and the naval forces of the puppet army staged a large-scale anti-submarine exercise in the waters of the East Sea of Korea from Feb. 19 to 24.
The above-said madcap military exercises fully reveal the bellicose nature of those who seek to deliberately strain the situation over the DPRK's legitimate and just satellite launch and nuclear test and provoke a war of aggression against it in league with the U.S.
