Mad-cap Ssangyong Drill Goes On in S. Korea
Pyongyang, April 1 (KCNA) -- The U.S. imperialist aggression forces and their followers are staging Ssangyong landing operational drill in real earnest as part of the largest-ever Foal Eagle joint military exercises, according to the south Korean internet paper Thongil News on March 31.

Involved in the drill that started on March 27 are more than 7,500 marines of the U.S. imperialist aggression forces, over 2,000 south Korean puppet marines and over 130 Australian soldiers, over 12,500 in all.

On March 31 the warmongers staged a naval drill under the simulated conditions of mounting an attack on a coast of the north with naval and air forces including landing craft, destroyers, escort ships and logistic support ships with various missions as well as transport planes and helicopter gunships involved in the area of Phohang, North Kyongsang Province.

The forces involved in the drill are several times bigger than the previous ones. It is expected to last till April 7 with an additional program for air attack on the north added to it.

The warmongers bluffed that the on-going military exercise is the second biggest in scale after the Team Spirit joint military exercises and opened the drill to public.

They describe the drill as "defensive and annual" though aggression and war means move to places simulating areas in the DPRK, firing bullets and shells. Their lame excuses will convince no one. These madcap war exercises self-expose that the U.S. imperialists and the puppet military group are the harassers of peace and provocateurs of war.
