Rodong Sinmun Slams Key Resolve and Foal Eagle Joint Military Drills
Pyongyang, March 6 (KCNA) -- Key Resolve and Foal Eagle joint military drills being staged by the United States and south Korea are provocative saber-rattling simulating a preemptive nuclear attack upon the DPRK, says Rodong Sinmun Thursday in an article.

It goes on:

The focus of the joint military drills is directed to increasing the combined and joint operation capabilities of the U.S. imperialist aggressor forces and units of the south Korean army and finally rounding off all the preparations for a war as required by the scenario for mounting a preemptive attack upon the north.

What merits a more serious attention is that the warmongers are seeking to apply their "tailored deterrence strategy" to the on-going drills for the first time and to prove its effectiveness.

The "tailored deterrence strategy" is a dangerous war scenario which calls for mobilizing all military means including nuclear weapons and making a preemptive attack on the north after dividing somebody's posture of nuclear action into the phase of threat, the phase of imminent use and the phase of using nukes, etc.

It is the height of shamelessness that they are painting such drills for aggression as "defensive" now that they clearly assume the nature of preemptive attack on the north and all-out war.

The joint military drills are undisguised exercises for a nuclear war against the DPRK because they are not "annual defensive drills" to cope with "threat and provocation" from someone but for posing a serious military threat to it while bringing the tension on the Korean peninsula to an extreme phase and, at the same time, vitiating the atmosphere of improving the inter-Korean relations and achieving the independent reunification.

The U.S. had better stop letting loose rhetoric about "defensive drills" and halt at once Key Resolve and Foal Eagle as unanimously demanded by the Korean nation.
