KCNA Commentary on U.S. Reckless Nuclear War Provocations
Pyongyang, October 20 (KCNA) -- The U.S. military provocations are now going on a more dangerous stage.

On October 17, the U.S. deployed air strategic assets including B-52 nuclear strategic bomber and F-22 Raptor stealth fighter in the region of south Korean puppets.

It is the first time that the U.S. core air combat force has been deployed in the Korean peninsula simultaneously and B-52, a typical strategic bomber of the U.S. air force capable of carrying nuclear weapons, landed in the puppet region.

All these U.S. air strategic assets committed provocations in the sky above the area near the Military Demarcation Line on the day and B-52 strategic bomber of the U.S. forces and F-35A fighters of the puppet air force staged even a large-scale joint air drill targeting the DPRK.

What merits a more serious attention is that the U.S. air force commanders including the commander of the U.S. Pacific Air Force and the commander of the 7th Air Force, together with their stooges including the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the chief of the Air Staff of the puppet forces, appeared at the Chongju air force base where B-52 is landing on October 19 and openly vociferated violent remarks of preemptive strike that the deployment of nuclear strategic assets "shows the firm will to implement their commitments for providing the extended deterrence" and "hints that nuclear delivery to the north is possible in case of emergency".

Moreover, the U.S., Japan and the puppet forces are going to stage a joint air drill with the U.S. nuclear strategic bomber B-52 for the first time in history in the sky above the vicinity of the Korean peninsula from Oct. 22.

This is the intentional nuclear war provocative moves of the U.S. driven into a tight corner at home and abroad.

As everybody knows, the U.S. adventurous policy for realizing its strategy for hegemony has faced bankruptcy due to disputes in Europe and the Middle East and the aftermath of them, and the internal affairs of the U.S. has gotten into utter confusion due to sharp conflict among domestic political forces.

The present U.S. administration's external influence and position are increasingly falling due to new contradiction and discord between big powers and allies.

The U.S. is scheming to pave the way for its resurrection in the Korean peninsula, regarding the nukes of tyranny as an almighty solution, but its attempt can never be realized.

Whether the introduction of all nuclear strategic assets including strategic nuclear submarine, nuclear carrier and nuclear strategic bomber while actually operating the nuclear war mechanism is a "cordial" to "ease" the puppet forces who are in constant security uneasiness or a revelation of the sinister intention to open an overseas way out by escalating tension on the Korean peninsula, the armed forces of the DPRK regard it as a grave military movement of preemptive nuclear attack aimed at physical removal of the DPRK and closely watch it.

The U.S. would be well aware that the Korean peninsula is in a state of war by law and its strategic assets deploying in the puppet region are the first targets of destruction.

The period when the right to preemptive attack was the "monopoly" of the U.S. has already come to an end.

Now that the U.S. and gangsters of the "Republic of Korea" have committed a provocation of nuclear war against the DPRK, the DPRK will take corresponding option.

The closer the target and the greater the target, the more vividly it looks and the higher the degree of danger increases.

We recall once again that the DPRK has enacted the policy of nuclear force which allowed the necessary procedures of action in case an attack on the state by nuclear weapons was launched or drew near is judged, and then specified it as far as the constitution.

The U.S. had better understand at an early date that the more frequently the misjudgment is repeated, the more desperately the critical moment of the American continent will be approached.

An irrevocable regret follows a reckless act.
