Pyongyang, March 7 (KCNA) -- The National Defence Commission of the DPRK issued a statement on Monday in connection with the fact that the U.S. imperialists and south Korean puppet forces decided to kick off the largest-ever joint military exercises Key Resolve and Foal Eagle 16 today.
They are claiming that the joint military exercises amount to "a
crucial pressure" pursuant to the unreasonable UN "resolution on
sanctions" faked up by them under the groundless pretext of the DPRK's
self-defensive first H-bomb test and its legitimate launch of earth
observation satellite Kwangmyongsong-4.
The enemies, seized with extreme frenzy for invading the north,
threw off even the deceptive mask "annual and "defensive ones".
The situation is getting ever more serious as the enemies decided to
stage the Key Resolve and Foal Eagle 16 joint military exercises by the
way of fighting an actual war involving the thrice-cursed "beheading
operation" aimed to remove the supreme headquarters of the DPRK and
"bring down its social system" pursuant to the extremely adventurous
The statement solemnly clarified the following principled stand as
regards the fact that the prevailing situation reached a dangerous phase
which should not be overlooked any longer:
1. The army and people of the DPRK will launch an all-out offensive
to decisively counter the U.S. and its followers' hysteric nuclear war
moves to plunge the space of the DPRK's existence into a nuclear
disaster, not content with wantonly encroaching upon the sovereignty and
security of the dignified DPRK.
Tragedy is that the U.S. and its followers have not yet realized how
the illegal and outrageous "sanctions" make this land boil like a
crucible of battle for wiping out the enemies and into what great fury
their war frenzy for invading the north with nuclear threat is lashing
all the service personnel and people of the DPRK.
As the enemies are foolishly resorting to military means including
nuclear attack on the DPRK, all its service personnel and people will
turn out in the general offensive to fully demonstrate the tremendous
military muscle with nuclear force as pivot which they have built under
the slogan of wiping out the U.S. imperialists and their lackeys to the
2 . The army and people of the DPRK will take military counteraction
for preemptive attack so that they may deal merciless deadly blows at
the enemies under the grave situation where they are working with
bloodshot eyes to infringe upon the dignity, sovereignty and vital
rights of the DPRK.
We have the Juche-based mode of military counteraction to defend the
socialist country as firm as a rock from any aggression and war in the
As the joint military exercises to be staged by the enemies are
regarded as the most undisguised nuclear war drills aimed to infringe
upon the sovereignty of the DPRK, its military counteraction will be
more preemptive and offensive nuclear strike to cope with them.
The indiscriminate nuclear strike to be made by the DPRK will
clearly show those keen on aggression and war the military mettle of
Preemptive nuclear strike of justice is to be made in the order
specified by the Supreme Command of the Korean People's Army in its
3. If the enemies dare kick off even the slightest military action
while vociferating about "beheading operation" aimed to remove the
supreme headquarters of the DPRK and "bring down its social system", its
army and people will not miss the opportunity but realize the greatest
desire of the Korean nation through a sacred war of justice for
We have a military operation plan of our style to liberate south
Korea and strike the U.S. mainland ratified by our dignified supreme
Pursuant to it, offensive means have been deployed to put major
strike targets in the operation theatres of south Korea within the
firing range and the powerful nuclear strike means targeting the U.S.
imperialist aggressor forces bases in the Asia-Pacific region and the
U.S. mainland are always ready to fire.
If we push the buttons to annihilate the enemies even right now, all
bases of provocations will be reduced to seas in flames and ashes in a
moment and the U.S. imperialists' nuclear strategic means on which the
puppet forces depend as "saviors" turn into piles of scrap iron whether
they are in the air, seas and land.
The time will prove how the crime-woven history of the U.S.
imperialists who have grown corpulent through aggression and war will
come to an end and how the Park Geun Hye group's disgraceful remaining
days will meet a miserable doom as it is keen on the confrontation with
the fellow countrymen in the north.
The army and people of the DPRK will make the gunfire of
provocateurs in the reckless war of aggression sound as a sad dirge. -0-
