KCNA Commentary Blasts Protracted U.S.-S. Korea Military Exercises
Pyongyang, March 22 (KCNA) -- The U.S.-south Korea joint military maneuvers, Foal Eagle, are assuming protracted nature.
Foal Eagle, large field mobile exercises aimed at invading the DPRK, was reported to go on till late in April though Key Resolve was over. This is arousing serious concern among the members of the international community.
As already known to the public, Foal Eagle is a comprehensive drill for a preemptive nuclear attack to realize the ambition for invading the DPRK after igniting an all-out war through surprise attacks on strategic targets in its depth and its main bases.
This protracted nature of the on-going saber-rattling proves its bellicose nature, above all.
In the past U.S.-south Korea joint military exercises were staged according to OPLAN 5027 under the pretence of coping with someone′s "invasion of the south." But, this year′s saber-rattling is underway according to OPLAN 5029 mainly under the pretext of coping with "contingency".
OPLAN 5029 is a very dangerous war scenario as it classifies somebody′s "contingency" into six categories and calls on the U.S. and south Korean warmongers "to go over to a military intervention" in case of "contingency."
The on-going saber-rattling cannot be interpreted otherwise than very dangerous war maneuvers for mounting a three-dimensional surprise attack on the DPRK with all means including nukes involved under the pretext of coping with "contingency".
The above-said protracted war maneuvers are aimed, to all intents and purposes, to steadily escalate the pressure upon the DPRK and the military tension to realize the scenario of the U.S. and south Korean puppet forces to start a war of aggression against it.
The situation remains so tense on the Korean Peninsula that a war may break out anytime due to the arrogant aggressors who respond to the positive efforts of the DPRK for dialogue and peace with war maneuvers.
The U.S. and the south Korean authorities will never evade the responsibility for this grave situation.
The war maniacs should never miscalculate. It is a daydream for them to seek to hurt the DPRK through war exercises.
