U.S. Accused of Bringing Nuclear Carrier for Maneuver
Pyongyang, October 27 (KCNA) -- The United States brought even its nuclear-powered carrier "George Washington" to be involved in the recent joint military maneuver it staged with the south Korean military authorities in the West Sea of the Korean Peninsula. This was another grave military threat to the DPRK. Minju Joson Tuesday observes this in a signed commentary.

It goes on:

As far as the West Sea of Korea is concerned, it is a very sensitive area where there is the danger of frequent conflict between the armed forces of the north and the south and they are standing in acute military confrontation.

By introducing the above-said carrier into the waters fraught with such great danger that it is listed as a hotbed of a war, in fact, the U.S. brought to light its strategic scenario to mount a preemptive attack on the DPRK in contingency and stifle it by force of arms.

This bellicose action taken by the U.S. at a time when the world is working hard to find a solution to the issue of ensuring peace on the Korean Peninsula is nothing but a blatant challenge to the efforts of peace-loving humankind.

The U.S. is regarding its military threat and frantic armed intervention as "the most effective and reliable option" and a mainstay of "its strategy towards the DPRK."

The DPRK can never remain a passive onlooker to this dangerous development as the country's security is gravely threatened by the U.S. and the situation on the Korean Peninsula is deteriorating.

The DPRK is left with no option but to bolster up its war deterrent in every way under the present situation where the U.S. is adamantly refusing to roll back its hostile policy towards the DPRK for the purpose of ensuring peace and security on the Korean Peninsula and the DPRK's dignity and security are exposed to a threat.

The U.S. would be well advised to face up to the present situation, judge it with reason and take a right option.
