KCNA Commentary Blasts U.S. Preparations for Cyber Attack on DPRK
Pyongyang, February 24 (KCNA) -- A recent revelation puts it that the U.S. has secretly been making preparations to mount a large-scale cyber-attack on the DPRK before making a military attack.
The February 15th issue of the U.S. magazine Foreign Policy disclosed that the Trump administration put all the intelligence agencies including the CIA and the DIA on a high alert to get them ready to launch a large-scale cyber attack as the first phase of the practical military option toward the DPRK, while countering the nuclear and missile threats from it with "word bomb".
The magazine also disclosed that the U.S. had pushed forward the preparations for the attack in top secrecy for the past six months in south Korea, Japan and other places, had already invested funds running at billions of U.S. dollars and trained necessary experts, and that the U.S. military intelligence analysts were accordingly put on standby to be followed by the posting of elite Korean peninsula experts to intelligence arms under the DIA.
CIA Director Pompeo and former and incumbent officials of the U.S. bluffed that the U.S. preparations for the cyber war targeting the Korean peninsula and the intelligence agencies' preparations for the operation have reached the unprecedented level of an all-out charge, adding that the first bullet will be shot by cyber.
Timed to coincide with this, the NBC, Blumberg News, The Washington Post and other U.S. media have now become vociferous about "cyber terrorism" and "threats" from the DPRK.
This proves that the U.S. war moves against the DPRK have reached the phase of practical implementation.
One of the means for the preemptive attack which the U.S. values as much as the nuclear stick and dollars in realizing its hegemonic strategy is the cyber warfare.
The U.S. has so far poured huge human and material resources on strengthening the cyber war capabilities since the 1990s, considering the cyber space as the fifth area for realizing its world domination after the land, sea, air and space.
In May 2010 it set up the Cyber Command and in October 2012 it issued the president's secret order to mount a preemptive attack on any country without advance warning, with the mobilization of all means for hacking attack.
It is not a secret that, under this plan, the U.S. introduced a great number of cyber warfare experts into various types of DPRK-targeted war drills including Key Resolve and Foal Eagle joint drills and has systematically conducted the cyber attack drills against the DPRK.
It is an unpardonable terrorist act and a shameless war provocation for the U.S. to spur the preparations for large-scale cyber attack on the DPRK through even the intelligence agencies.
For the U.S. to get vociferous about "cyber terrorism" and "hacking" by someone is nothing but shameless sophism aimed to cover up its despicable nature as a hacking empire and kingpin of cyber terrorism and justify its moves for a war against the DPRK.
Amid the controversy about the resumption of the U.S.-south Korea joint military exercises, nuclear war groups including the nuclear carrier have already taken their positions in and around south Korea, ready for advance. Under such situation the U.S. plans to commence even large-scale cyber attack. This proves that the curtain for the second Korean war has already been lifted.
The U.S. had better judge what horrible consequences it can face in case it fires the first bullet by cyber.
The DPRK is fully ready to counter any war mode of the U.S. as it has everything in hands and is ready for everything.
The U.S. should properly understand its rival and should not run amuck. -0-
