U.S. Had Better Cogitate about Nuclear Stand-off with DPRK: KCNA Commentary
Pyongyang, August 7 (KCNA) -- Locklear, commander-in-chief of the U.S. forces in the Pacific, at a recent emergency press conference said the U.S. is ready to cope with the worst situation including a nuclear threat from the north, while describing its nuclear and missile capabilities as a serious challenge to the international community.

This is sophism to justify Washington's hostile policy toward the DPRK, and self-confidence of those who are utterly unaware of who their rival is.

The actual provocation and threat to the Korean peninsula at present are a product of the U.S. hostile policy toward the DPRK and the former's belligerent nuclear strategy.

Recently the U.S. officially announced it would apply "tailored deterrence strategy", a scenario for a preemptive attack on the north, into Ulji Freedom Guardian joint military exercises it plans to stage from mid-August after conducting joint naval maneuvers with the puppet army with a flotilla of nuclear carrier George Washington involved.

The daily increasing nuclear threat and challenge of the U.S. compels the DPRK to bolster the nuclear force qualitatively and quantitatively to protect the dignity and security of the country and the nation and guarantee peace on the peninsula.

The Voice of Russia recently commented that the policy of ignoring the DPRK's stand is, in the final analysis, little short of helping it become a nuclear power.

The DPRK's access to a powerful nuclear force was a just option for defending its sovereignty and peace.

The U.S. persistent nuclear threats compel the DPRK to steadily bolster its nuclear deterrence.

Given that the U.S. and the puppet forces of south Korea continue staging nuclear war exercises against the DPRK, in particular, the DPRK will take countermeasures for self-defence which will include missile launch, nuclear test and all other programs.

Units of the ground, naval, air and anti-air forces of the Korean People's Army including the strategic forces are staging without let-up exercises for bolstering the nation's capability for self-defence under simulated conditions including the firing of super-precision tactical rockets and artillery firing drills with various missions. These are part of those countermeasures.

The army of the DPRK is reliably protecting the dignity and security of the country and the nation, tightly holding such treasured sword of justice as strategic rockets tipped with nuclear warheads powerful enough to strike the U.S. mainland. This reflects the firm will of the army and people of the DPRK.

The U.S. had better to think twice over the nuclear stand-off with the DPRK.
