KCNA Commentary Slams U.S.-S. Korea Joint Landing Drills Targeting DPRK

   Pyongyang, April 4 (KCNA) -- The U.S. and the south Korean puppet forces have kicked off large-scale joint naval maneuvers as part of Foal Eagle war games, further escalating tension on the Korean peninsula.
    Involved in the drills staged under the signboard of "improving the capabilities for joint landing operation" were naval forces of the U.S. imperialist aggressor forces and the south Korean puppet army and marines, more than 7 600 in all, over 30 warships including landing craft, transport ships, Aegis destroyers and submarines, more than 80 aircraft and at least 40 amphibious armored vehicles.
    Those forces for a preemptive attack staged such offensive drills as the ones for naval infiltration and coastal reconnaissance and the one for large-scale naval bombardment and air strike for wiping out forces in a targeted area.
    A drill for mobilizing civilian ships for the transport of landing forces and the one of copters of the U.S. marines for taking off from and landing on transports of the south Korean puppet army and rehearsal of hurling south Korean marines into a targeted area were staged only to bring to light the aggressive nature of Foal Eagle joint military drills being termed by the U.S. and the south Korean puppet forces "annual and defensive".
    In a nutshell, the above-said joint naval maneuvers were aimed to test large-scale landing operations under the simulated conditions of an actual war, the scenario for having ground forces and marines of the U.S. and the puppet south Korean army landed on the coasts of the DPRK.
    Such grave maneuvers being staged as part of Foal Eagle aimed at "occupying Pyongyang" are being censured by the international community as a blatant challenge to regional peace and security and dangerous military actions of warmongers to ignite a nuclear war at any cost.
    Nevertheless, the U.S. and the puppet warmongers are so ridiculous as to describe their DPRK-targeted war drills as the ones for seeking "an opportunity of tightening joint military posture" and "contributing to regional peace and security in the long run."
    As known, Foal Eagle war games are the largest of the south Korea-U.S. joint military drills as they are combined field mobile rehearsals aimed at mounting a surprise guerilla attack upon the DPRK.
    Foal Eagle war games this year are assuming ever more provocative nature in the light of their programs and forms as they are being staged in the sky, ground and sea of south Korea for a pre-emptive attack on the DPRK, pursuant to the tailored deterrence strategy.
    The trigger-happy forces are working with bloodshot eyes to realize the scenario for mounting a sudden preemptive attack upon the DPRK through rapid hurling of U.S. imperialist aggressor forces, their forward deployment and use of south Korea-U.S. combined forces.
    Now peace and security on the Korean peninsula and other parts in the world are seriously harassed by the ceaseless DPRK-targeted war drills of the U.S. and the south Korean puppet war maniacs.
    Now that the defusing of tension on the peninsula and mending of north-south relations are more urgently required than ever before, the above-said landing drills are lashing its service personnel and people into great fury.
    The service personnel and people of the DPRK will never allow the U.S. and the south Korean puppet forces' war moves to infringe upon the sovereignty and dignity of the DPRK.
    The saber-rattling of the U.S. and the south Korean puppet forces will only precipitate their final ruin. -0-
