U.S., S. Korea Stage Military Drill Simulating Nuclear War
Pyongyang, January 17 (KCNA) -- The U.S. imperialists and the south Korean puppet warmongers staged at the U.S. Pacific Command in Hawaii on Jan. 14 and 15 an exercise for operating the extended deterrence under the simulated conditions of a nuclear war on the Korean peninsula.

At the drill watched by officials concerned with military and diplomatic affairs the warmongers were reported to have estimated their nuclear and non-nuclear capabilities for carrying out the "tailored deterrence strategy" and discussed the counterproposal based on a nuclear war, kicking up war hysteria.

The U.S. imperialists and the puppet group kicked off this drill in 2011 with main emphasis on getting familiar with the procedures to operate extended deterrence such as nuclear umbrella and missile defense system.

They applied to this drill for the first time the "tailored deterrence strategy", a dangerous war scenario calling for mounting preemptive attack on the DPRK by mobilizing all military means such as nuclear weapons in the event that there is the slightest sign of using nukes and missiles by it.

The above-said reckless actions go to clearly prove who is the arch criminal keen to ignite a nuclear war on the Korean peninsula.
