The U.S. and the south Korean puppet warmongers decided to stage the anti-DPRK joint military exercises, Key Resolve, across south Korea from the latter part of February despite the strong protest at home and abroad.
This is an unpardonable grave military provocation to the sovereignty of the DPRK and a wanton challenge to the international community’s desire for peace and stability in the Korean Peninsula.
The Key Resolve is a nuclear war rehearsal for aggression on the DPRK aimed to occupy the whole of the Korean Peninsula by force of arms.
Huge armed forces of the U.S. and south Korea will be hurled into the exercises and means for preemptive nuclear attack and naval operation groups deployed in south Korea and its surrounding waters.
It is as clear as noonday that the exercises will deteriorate the critical inter-Korean relations and drive the tension of the Korean Peninsula to the brink of war.
The U.S. and the puppet warmongers have asserted that the rehearsal does not pose threat to anyone as it is “annual and defensive one.”
But, such assertion is a foolish trick to cover up its aggressive and provocative nature and evade the accusation against them as mastermind in disturbing the peace and stability of the peninsula.
More intolerable is the fact the rehearsal is to be staged when the people of the DPRK are still mourning over the great loss to the nation. Herein lies its gangster-like nature.
The army and people of the DPRK will mercilessly punish those gangsters who rush into a house of mourning with flaming torch of aggression.
