US-S. Korean Warmongers' Anti-submarine Exercise Blasted
Pyongyang, September 28 (KCNA) -- The south Korean puppet forces and the U.S. imperialist aggression troops kicked off a five day-long DPRK-targeted provocative joint anti-submarine exercise in the West Sea of Korea on Sept. 27. Involved in this saber-rattling are huge armed forces of the U.S. imperialists and south Korean puppet forces including destroyers, escort ships, ocean-observation ships, high-speed assault submarines and patrol planes.
Rodong Sinmun Tuesday observes in a signed commentary in this regard:
The warmongers are describing the maneuver as a drill to cope with "submarine infiltration" by somebody, but this is nothing but a subterfuge.
The above-said joint anti-submarine exercise is a dangerous provocative saber-rattling to steadily escalate military confrontation and tensions on the Korean Peninsula in a bid to bar the inter-Korean relations from improving and drive the situation to an extreme phase.
The DPRK has recently taken such an initiative as advancing a series of positive proposals for improving the inter-Korean relations and made positive efforts to put them into practice in order to defuse the touch and go situation on the peninsula.
The provocative war exercises being staged by the south Korean war-like forces in collusion with the U.S. are increasing the military threat to the DPRK and escalating tensions. These anti-dialogue and anti-peace actions diametrically run counter to the trend of times.
South Korea's "military policy toward the north" is making an undisguised switchover to a dangerous strategy for a preemptive attack. The gentries of the "Grand National Party" are becoming increasingly assertive for defining the DPRK as the "principal enemy" in the "defense white paper".
Should the south Korean authorities persist in their provocative war exercises in conspiracy with foreign forces, peace and stability will never settle on the Korean Peninsula but confrontation and distrust between the north and the south will further fester and this will lead to the outbreak of a nuclear war.
They had better pay heed to the demands of the nation and face up to trend of the times and stop at once their moves for a war of aggression against the DPRK which are harmful to them either.
