US Criticized for Scheming to Launch Military Exercises: Rodong Sinmun
Pyongyang, January 20 (KCNA) -- The U.S. decided to soon deploy a mechanized infantry unit composed of 40 latest tanks and 40 armored cars near the Military Demarcation Line of Korea

It also announced that it will launch Key Resolve and Foal Eagle joint military exercises from late February to late April.

Rodong Sinmun Sunday in a commentary said that this is a dangerous war racket to ignite the 2nd Korean War at any cost by reinforcing aggression forces.

Washington, however, is claiming that its military drills assume the "defensive nature" to cope with someone's "threat" and "provocation", the commentary noted, and went on:

It is a scenario of the U.S. to stigmatize the DPRK as the "threatening forces" in a bid to justify its moves for invading the DPRK and carry out its sinister goal.

Key Resolve and Foal Eagle are a test nuclear war and a preliminary war to mount a preemptive attack on the DPRK from A to Z.

The U.S. is taking issue with the DPRK groundlessly, talking about "threat" and "provocation". This is nothing but a brazen-faced and base ploy to cover up its true colors as a wrecker of peace, provocateur and aggressor and lay the blame for it at the door of the DPRK.

It is a daydream for the U.S. to try to provoke the DPRK by force. No force can settle any issue but it will only drive the situation into a catastrophe.

If the U.S. ignites a nuclear war, the DPRK will have no choice but to take a thousand-fold strong self-defensive measure as it regards the sovereignty of the country and the dignity of the nation as its life.

The U.S. would be advised to clearly understand the will of the army and people of the DPRK and make a right option, though belatedly.
