Pyongyang, May 19 (KCNA) -- The DPRK's successful underwater test-fire of ballistic missile from a strategic submarine instilled the confidence in certain victory and optimism into not only the Korean people but also the revolutionary people of the world and struck terror into the hearts of the U.S. and its allies, says Rodong Sinmun Tuesday in an article.
It goes on:
The acquisition of the underwater launching technology of ballistic
missile from a strategic submarine is of strategic significance which is
no less than satellite launching as the DPRK came to conduct any
underwater operation with world-level strategic weapons capable of
striking and wiping out in any waters hostile forces scheming to hurt
its sovereignty and dignity.
The DPRK is ready for any kind of war, operation and battle wanted
and opted by the U.S. imperialists and has access to strategic and
tactic guided missiles and nuclear deterrence capable of seizing the
initiative in a war by conventional armed forces or any other modern war
including a nuclear war and completely fighting down the enemies.
If the U.S. imperialists and the south Korean puppet warmongers dare
do harm to the DPRK, it will turn their bases for aggression into ashes
through its first strike. This is the immutable stand of the powerful
revolutionary Paektusan army.
If the U.S. is persistently standing against the just cause of the
DPRK's army and people, oblivious of tremendous might of Songun Korea,
the U.S. will meet an unheard-of miserable end in its mainland. -0-
