ASSPUK, JISGE and UK KFA slam the participation of UK in Foal Eagle and Key Resolve

               London 12th of March  Juche 104(2016)
The Association For the Study of Songun Politics UK(ASSPUK), the Juche Idea Study Group of England(JISGE) and the UK Korean Friendship Association(UK KFA) today issued a statementtotally and without reservation condemns the participation of armed forces from the UK in the aggressive war exercise of the US imperialists "Foal Eagle " and "Key Resolve".
   "Foal Eagle" and "Key Resolve " are not defensive exercises but a dry run for invading the DPRK  and achieving "regime change ". The exercises are large in scale and scope involving more than 15,000 US imperialist troops and include so-called 'beheading operations' aimed at the murder of the Supreme leadership of the DPRK as well strikes on nuclear and rocket facilities of the DPRK.  It is a sheer disgrace that UK troops should be involved in this blatantly imperialistic aggressive warmongering exercises thousands of miles from the shores of the UK.
It is also amazing that at a time when the UK budget deficit is spiralling out of control, public spending is being deeply cut and millions face austerity that money can somehow be found to join in the gung-ho war-games of the Yankees.
   It is also hypocrisy for the UK to noisily condemn the DPRK over the recent nuclear test but to then participate in nuclear war-games against it.
   "Foal Eagle " and "Key Resolve" along with the UNSC sanctions against the DPRK have brought the situation in Korea to a state of near war. It is the British government happy to sacrifice the lives of it soldiers just as it was in Afghanistan and Iraq.
   Instead joining the US war games against the DPRK Britain should pursue an independent policy and respect the independence and sovereignty of the DPRK.   The British government must break with the hostile anti-DPRK policies and not repeat the tragic past history which included British troops acting as mercenaries for US imperialism in the past Korean war. This action in fighting against the Korean people , holding back reunification brought shame and dishonour on the UK.
   Our organisations, the ASSPUK, JISGE and UK KFA, denounce the UK government for its support for the reactionary and draconian UNSC santions against the DPRK.
     The labour, progressive, peace and anti imperialist movement of the UK must campaign against the UK's participation in "Foal Eagle " and "Key Resolve".
            No to UK participation in "Foal Eagle" and "Key Resolve"  ! Cancel US war exercises in Korea at once ! No to UNSC Sanctions
