U.S. AND S. KOREAN AUTHORITIES WARNED OF THEIR RECKLESS ACTS
Pyongyang, July 21 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the Policy Department of the National Defence Commission of the DPRK on July 20 issued a statement condemning the U.S. and its followers for kicking up a campaign over the DPRK's legitimate measures to bolster up its capability for self-defence.
The statement said:
Strategic force units and other units of the ground, naval and air and anti-air forces of the Korean People's Army have recently conducted a series of drills with various missions under the simulated conditions of an actual war to bolster up the capability for self-defence such as the ones for ultra-precision tactical rocket firing and firing drills of diverse artillery pieces.
The service personnel and the people of the DPRK are greatly encouraged by the signal successes made in these drills of KPA units. The peace- and justice-loving people in the world are expressing admiration at the shining successes of the service personnel and the people of the DPRK.
It is against this backdrop that only the U.S. and its ally the Park Geun Hye group and some other undesirable forces are behaving mischievously, revealing their sinister intentions. The U.S. grumbled as if tactical rockets of the KPA had gone into actions to strike its mainland, claiming "north Korea is posing an unusual and special threat to the U.S."
It is terming the routine drills of the KPA a politically-motivated low-profile provocation and successive military threats to the allies in the region. The south Korean authorities are echoing the U.S. claim by asserting the tactical rocket firing and firing drills of artillery pieces by the KPA are a retaliation against their refusal of the DPRK's special proposal and its government's statement, a dangerous provocation to escalate the military tensions and a deliberate threat to them. They went the lengths of letting the UN Security Council, a mechanism which has lost its impartiality long ago, kick up much fuss in a bid to mislead public opinion. 

Some weak-willed countries are blindly joining in such odd charade. Clinging to the malodorous coattails of the U.S., they are going so reckless as to vie with each other to hug poor-looking Park Geun Hye.
In view of all these ridiculous ruckuses being staged by making profound confusion of right and wrong, the Policy Department of the NDC of the DPRK once again serves a strong warning to the U.S. and the south Korean authorities, their prime movers, reflecting the voices of the service personnel and the people of the DPRK.
The U.S. and the south Korean authorities should properly know what words "provocation" and "threat" mean before wagging their tongues. If the tactical rocket firing of the KPA is a "provocation" to the U.S. and a threat to regional stability and peace, then what should be said of the countless number of strategic missiles launched by the U.S. and the DPRK-targeted war drills frequently staged by it together with the south Korean military gangsters after bringing its forces to other country?
The real provocations and threats made to the Korean peninsula are the whole gamut of political and military moves being pushed forward by the U.S., pursuant to its hostile policy toward the DPRK and its belligerent military strategy. In other words, the reckless intrusions into the waters of the DPRK side perpetrated by the warmongers of the south Korean military almost every day at the instigation of the U.S. are typical provocations.
The U.S. and the south Korean authorities should not resort to brazen-faced brigandish acts reminiscent of a thief brandishing a club. The U.S., an arch criminal making provocations and threats, is kicking up high-intensity war drills for aggression every day in the land, waters and sky of other country. The U.S. and the south Korean authorities who are hell-bent on confrontation with the compatriots in the north at the former's beck and call are terming the military drills for self-defence conducted by the DPRK in its own land, waters and sky a "provocation" and a "threat." What are suitable words to accuse such impudent and brigandish behavior?
This is nothing but a shameless act of a burglar rudely behaving in face of the master of a house trying to protect his house by himself. Such hooliganism may work somewhere else but can never work in this land being safeguarded by the service personnel and people of the DPRK.
The more desperately the U.S. and the south Korean authorities resort to gangster-like hostile acts, the more deadly retaliatory actions of Korean style they will face. This will be like a bolt from the blue.
The DPRK has already done everything it could to mend the north-south relations and achieve the reunification, peace and prosperity of the country through its crucial proposal and open letter in January, special proposal in June and government statement in July. What remains to be done at present is to make a final choice. 

The U.S. and the south Korean authorities should no longer behave recklessly, daring talk about "provocation" and "threat" from someone. If they persist in doing so, all the self-defensive deterrent forces of the DPRK will keep themselves fully ready to punish all undesirable forces in the world, strikingly demonstrate its invincible might and strongly counter their moves through its practical retaliatory actions of justice.
DPRK FOREIGN MINISTRY BLASTS UNSC'S PRESS STATEMENT CRITICAL OF ITS LAUNCH OF SHORT-RANGE MISSILES
Pyongyang, July 19 (KCNA) -- The UN Security Council at its informal consultative meeting held on July 17 staged a farce of publishing a press statement terming the DPRK's launch of even short-range missiles a "violation of its resolutions."
The Foreign Ministry of the DPRK in a statement on Saturday said all the military measures taken by the Korean People's Army including tactical rocket firing are an exercise of the right to self-defence to protect the sovereignty of the country and the security of the nation from the U.S. nuclear threats and moves for aggression from A to Z.
This year the DPRK made a series of positive peace proposals ranging from the crucial proposal of its National Defence Commission and its special proposal to the statement of its government and has taken practical measures pursuant to them, the statement noted, and continued: The U.S., however, staged Key Resolve and Foal Eagle joint military exercises in succession together with the south Korean puppet forces and kicked off the largest-ever combined aerial drill in the wake of the large-scale joint landing exercises since 1993.
The UNSC persistently overlooked the U.S. madcap war maneuvers for aggression and nuclear threat and took issue with the inevitable option taken by the DPRK to cope with them and censured it. This is absolutely intolerable. If the UNSC is to perform its mission for ensuring global peace and security, it should call into question the offensive, threatening and provocative joint military exercises of the U.S. and the south Korean puppet forces.
How the UNSC approaches the said exercises will be a yardstick to assess its impartiality and judge whether it can contribute to global peace and security both in name and in reality or not. Now that the UNSC serves the purpose of the U.S. hostile moves against the DPRK, bereft of its impartiality, the DPRK is left with no option but to bolster up its muscle to protect itself by its own efforts.
No matter how fair-minded and just one may be, one is bound to fall victim to big powers if one is weak, and it is possible to protect genuine peace only when one builds its muscle strong enough to deter any force from provoking one. This is the lesson and truth taught by history. 
The further the U.S. escalates its nuclear threat and blackmail, the greater efforts the DPRK will channel into bolstering up its nuclear deterrence for self-defence. As long as the U.S. and the south Korean puppet forces persist in their joint military exercises for aggression, the DPRK's counter-actions will be put on an annual and regular basis.

Any conflict which may take place in the course of the Korean People's Army's tactical rocket firing and other intensified retaliatory drills to cope with the U.S ceaseless war maneuvers in south Korea and its vicinity may spill over to a war. In case an unpredictable situation is created on the Korean peninsula, the U.S. and the UNSC which instigated and patronized it will be wholly responsible for the development as it compelled the DPRK to take such inevitable option.
Kim Jong Un Provides Field Guidance to Songchongang Net-Weaving Factory and Plastic Tube Shop
Pyongyang, July 18 (KCNA) -- Supreme Commander of the Korean People's Army (KPA) Kim Jong Un, first secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea (WPK) and first chairman of the National Defence Commission (NDC) of the DPRK, gave field guidance to the Songchongang Net-weaving Factory and plastic tube shop of Enterprise No. 1521 of the KPA.He looked round the mosaic depicting smiling President Kim Il Sung and leader Kim Jong Il.
He was pleased to see the mosaic erected by the officials and employees at their enterprise with profound reverence and the yard in front of it and its environment face-lifted. He went round the newly arranged room dedicated to the history of the enterprise. He said that the enterprise established under the far-reaching plan of the President made a great contribution to the development of the national economy under the loving care of Kim Jong Il in the past period.
Noting that the appearance of the net-weaving factory and plastic tube shop at the enterprise helps the enterprise emerge a general factory playing a big role in the building of a rich and powerful nation, he recollected the day he visited it last year. Going round the net-weaving factory and plastic tube shop, he acquainted himself in detail with production there and management activities.
He highly praised the enterprise for waging a dynamic drive to keep the production going at a high rate at the modern factory and shop newly built under the leadership of the party. He said that the factory and shop producing nets, ropes and plastic tubes badly needed by various fields including the fruit growing, fishery industry and construction are the nation's precious assets, though they are not big in their scale.
Saying that the demands for nets, ropes and plastic tubes are on the daily increase, he instructed the enterprise to boost their production depending on the production foundation already laid. "It is advisable for the factory and shop to improve the quality of products and their packing to be favored by the users and newly arrange a products show room," he said.
Going round the remodeled cultural hall, he asked how many seats it has and how it is being operated and appreciated its successful remodeling. Watching the visual aid materials displayed on the walls of the corridor of the hall, he underscored the need to effectively conduct the education of employees in various forms and by diverse methods and direct efforts to the education aimed to implant the anti-imperialist, anti-U.S. class consciousness into their minds as required by the prevailing situation, in particular.
He was accompanied by KPA Vice Marshal Hwang Pyong So, director of the KPA General Political Bureau, and Han Kwang Sang, department director of the C.C. the WPK, and Army Lieut. General Ma Won Chun, director of the Designing Department of the NDC.

Kim Jong Un Guides Performance of KPA Art Squad
Pyongyang, July 18 (KCNA) -- Supreme Commander of the Korean People's Army (KPA) Kim Jong Un, first secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea and first chairman of the National Defence Commission of the DPRK, guided the performance given by the art squad of the large-combined unit of KPA 324.
Put on the stage were colorful numbers of diverse forms such as male chorus "Revolutionary Armed Forces Uphold Leadership of Marshal Kim Jong Un Only", female solo "Voice of My Heart", poem recital "Marshal on Frontline", female sextet "Joy of the People" and trumpet and song "'I Know It,' Answer of Loyalty ".
The performers impressively represented the invincible might of the revolutionary armed forces of Mt. Paektu grown to be matchlessly strong army under the leadership of the supreme commander and the ardent loyalty of the service personnel serving the army with longing to see him. He said that the members of the art squad presented numbers of great ideological and educational values, expressing expectation and belief that the creators and artistes of the art squad would dynamically conduct revolutionary and militant performing activities in the future, too.
Noting art performances with strong influence and appeal are of weighty significance in the ideological education of the service personnel, he gave instructions which would serve as guidelines for the performing activities of the KPA.

U.S. and S. Korean Authorities Warned of Their Reckless Acts
Pyongyang, July 21 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the Policy Department of the National Defence Commission of the DPRK on July 20 issued a statement condemning the U.S. and its followers for kicking up a campaign over the DPRK's legitimate measures to bolster up its capability for self-defence.

Kim Jong Un Guides Match for Examining Men's Football of National Sports Team
Pyongyang, July 20 (KCNA) -- Kim Jong Un, first secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea, first chairman of the National Defence Commission of the DPRK and supreme commander of the Korean People's Army, guided a match for examining the men's football of the National Sports Team which will take part in the 17th Asian Games.
The National Sports Team played the match with the Jebi Team.
It trounced its rival 12:0.
Kim Jong Un expressed satisfaction over the fact that the men footballers of the National Sports Team fully displayed high football technique, mental power and persevering fighting spirit and had a photo taken with them.
The men footballers of the National Sports Team have conducted good training to take part in the games, he said.
Great are expectations and interest of our people in the games, he said, adding: "Sports persons should take part in the games and give full play to the noble spirit of sports, the stamina of the nation and the spirit of fair play and thus positively contribute to promoting reconciliation and unity of fellow countrymen, friendship and peace with various countries of the world."
"The participation of the DPRK's players in the 17th Asian Games offers an important occasion in improving the relations between the north and the south and removing distrust between them", he said, adding "it is our principled stand that the inviolable sports should not be a political bargaining chip of the undesirable forces".
He expressed expectation and conviction that sports persons of the DPRK including the men footballers of the National Sports Team who will take part in the games would put greater spurs to training.
Among the spectators were Choe Ryong Hae and Kim Yang Gon, secretaries of the C.C., the WPK, Hwang Pyong So, Ri Yong Gil, Hyon Yong Chol and other commanding officers of the KPA.

Generalissimo Kim Il Sung

July 27 this year marks the 61th anniversary of the victory of the Korean people in the Fatherland Liberation War or the Korean war (1950-1953). Greeting the day the world people remember with emotion the achievements Generalissimo Kim Il Sung (1912-1994) made in defeating two imperialisms in one generation.
Kim Il Sung defeated Japanese imperialism which militarily occupied Korea (1905-1945) and liberated his country.
In 1925 when he was in his teens he went to an alien land, firmly determined not to return before Korea became independent. On April 25, 1932 he founded the Anti-Japanese People’s Guerrilla Army, the predecessor of the present Korean People’s Army, in Antu County,Northeast China, thus, declaring the anti-Japanese war.
A showdown between the elite troops of Japan, which posed as “the leader” of Asia and one of the five military powers in the world, and the Korean guerrilla army which had neither the state rear nor the support from a regular army and was actually “a drop in the ocean” as was called by the Japanese, surpassed all established ideas.
Kim Il Sung, however, frustrated the enemy’s numerical and technical superiority by means of the political and ideological, strategic and tactical superiority. He put the one-million-strong Japanese Kwantung Army on the defensive by creating and applying skilfully his unique tactics, including rear-harassing operations, active operations of combination of large-unit activities with small-unit ones, attacking the west while sounding in the east, allurement, ambush and circular tactics.
Under his adroit command, the AJPGA dealt a heavy blow to the enemy in every battle. The Japanese army and police screamed that General Kim Il Sung employed the art of compressing space and Korea’s guerrilla army fought a war with tactics which could not be found in any books on military science.
At last the Japanese imperialists were defeated and the historical cause of Korea’s liberation was achieved on August 15, 1945.
Kim Il Sung displayed the national sovereignty and dignity to the world by defeating in the Korean war (1950-1953) the US imperialists who boasted of being “the strongest” in the world.
On June 25, 1950 the US provoked a war against the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, which was less than two years since its founding. It hurled into it a huge armed force over two million strong, including its ground, naval and air forces, troops of 15 vassal states, the south Korean puppet army and the remnants of the former Japanese army, and enormous amounts of war supplies worth over 73 million tons. In those days the US generals bragged that the war would be finished within a few days. The world people worried over Korea’s destiny.
However, the war ended against everybody’s expectation. The young DPRK defeated the US-led imperialist allied forces.
The miraculous victory of the Korean people was attributable to Kim Il Sung’s outstanding strategies and tactics, unique military art and adroit command.
In his radio address Go All Out for Victory in the War delivered on June 26, 1950, the next day of the start of the US armed invasion, President Kim Il Sung inspired the entire army and people of Korea to wipe out the enemy, and ordered the KPA units to switch over to an immediate and all-out counteroffensive. True to his order the KPA units checked the enemy’s advance and went over to the counteroffensive several hours after the start of the war and liberated Seoul, the capital of south Korea, after three days. They liberated over 90 per cent of the territory and 92 per cent of the population in the south in a little over a month.
During the war he put forth various tactics as required by the situation, such as the formation of the second front by a regular army, the strengthening of the action of striking the enemy behind, night warfare, mountain warfare, actions of surprise attacks, snipers’ and separate heavy-machine-gun teams, movements of aircraft- and tank-hunting teams, and tactics of applying direct-firing guns and attacking by torpedo boats, thus constantly annihilating and weakening the enemy. Military and technical superiority of the US was smashed to smithereens by Kim Il Sung who applied diversified and flexible strategies and tactics suited to the situation, always taking the initiative. At last the US knelt down before the Korean people.
Mark Clark, UN forces commander, who signed the Korean Armistice Agreement similar to the documents of surrender of the US, on July 27, 1953, confessed that the success of the Korean army was attributable to the talented command of General Kim Il Sung.
After the war Kim Il Sung developed the DPRK into an invincible socialist country by leading the fierce confrontation with the US imperialists to victory.
He put forward the line of simultaneously carrying on the building of the economy and defence in the early years of the 1960s when the situation on the Korean peninsula became aggravated by the moves of the US imperialists to provoke another war. He also advanced the self-defensive military line whose main contents are to train the whole army into a cadre army and modernize it, to arm all the people and fortify the whole country. Thanks to those lines, the KPA was developed into the armed force whose every member is an equal to a hundred foes, and the whole country turned into an impregnable fortress
He wisely led the service personnel and people of the DPRK to crush the constant military provocations by the US. A typical example was the Pueblo incident in January 1968.
When its armed spy ship Pueblo was captured by the KPA navy after having intruded into the territorial waters of the DPRK, the US deployed a huge armed force including a nuclear-powered aircraft carrier on the coastal waters of Korea and drove the situation on the Korean peninsula to the brink of war, talking boisterously about “a powerful military countermeasure” and “retaliation” just like a thief crying “Stop thief!”
At that time Kim Il Sung declared that the Korean people and army would retaliate for the “retaliation” of the enemy and return an all-out war for an all-out war and saw to it that the KPA was fully prepared for combat.
Suppressed by his matchless courage and grit, the US solemnly apologized to the DPRK for the espionage and hostile acts the Pueblo had committed and signed a document on assuring no more violation of the territorial waters of the DPRK by any warship in the future. As the then US President Johnson deplored, it was the first letter of apology in the history of the US.
The immortal military achievements of Generalissimo Kim Il Sung will shine for ever in the world history of the anti-imperialist struggle.


Korea’s V-Day
July 27 is a significant day in the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea. This day 61 years previously the United States, which had boasted of being “strongest” in the world, surrendered to the Korean people.
Day of Victory
Early in the morning of June 25, 1950, the United States started the Korean war by instigating the south Korean puppet army, in pursuit of its wild ambition of securing a bridgehead leading to its realization of world supremacy.
To this end, it hurled into the war a huge armed force two million strong, including its armed forces, troops of 15 vassal states, south Korean puppet army and even the remnants of the former Japanese army. It vouched that the destiny of Korea would be “finished within 72 hours” at the outset of the war.
However, the Korean war produced an event worthy of special mention in the war history of mankind.
The US suffered tremendous losses in the war: over 1 567 120 soldiers, including some 405 490 US soldiers, were killed or captured, and over 12 220 aircraft, 3 250 tanks and armoured vehicles, 13 350 vehicles, 560 warships and vessels of various types, 7 690 guns, 925 150 small arms and other war equipment were destroyed. The loss it suffered was nearly 2.3 times as much as that it had suffered in the four-year Pacific War during WWII. It had boasted of having won in more than 110 wars of aggression previously, but was defeated for the first time since its founding.
The DPRK, a small country in the East, wrought a miracle unprecedented in history of the world of repulsing the multinational force in disguise of the “United Nations Forces.”
The army and people of the DPRK defeated the enemy’s numerical and technical superiorities by means of their ideological, strategic and tactical ones. Such adroit strategies and tactics as immediate and decisive counteroffensive of the Korean People’s Army, strategic temporary retreat and the formation of the second front by the regular army, position and tunnel warfare, ambush, and movements of aircraft- and tank-hunting and snipers’ teams smashed to smithereens the military and technological superiorities much vaunted by the West.
The United States had no other option but to sign the Korean Armistice Agreement, similar to their surrender documents, on July 27, 1953. The then US President Dwight Eisenhower spoke through the radio 59 minutes after the AA was signed that it was tragically bitter.
July 27 was marked as the day of great victory for the Korean people who shattered the myth of “mightiness” of the US and reliably defended freedom and independence of the country.
History of Victory
The United States, instead of drawing due lesson from the past Korean war, has aggravated the tension on the Korean peninsula through ceaseless military provocations.
Typical is the incident of the US armed spy ship Pueblo that occurred in January 1968.
The armed spy ship of the US navy, having intruded into the territorial waters of the DPRK, was captured by the Korean People’s Army navy. When this happened, the United States made such a racket as to immediately start a war, deploying a large armed force in and around the Korean peninsula. US politicians demanded the DPRK should apologize and return the Pueblo. If the latter would refuse to do so, they threatened, nuclear weapons would be used.
In the face of the US blackmails the DPRK gave a resolute answer that it would “retaliate for the ‘retaliation’ of the enemy and return an all-out war for an all-out war” and became fully prepared for an all-out confrontation with the US. Overpowered, the US could not but sign a document on apologizing to the DPRK for the espionage and hostile acts the Pueblo had committed and assuring no more violation of the territorial waters of the DPRK by any warship in the future.
The then US President Johnson deplored that it was the first letter of apology in the history of the US.
Afterwards the US constantly committed provocations, such as the incident of its large espionage plane EC-121 in April, 1969, Panmunjom Incident in August, 1976, the first nuclear crisis on the Korean peninsula between 1993 and 1994 and the recurrent nuclear crisis in the new century, driving the situation on the Korean peninsula to the verge of war. All the incidents, however, ended in its failure and in victory of the Korean people.
Recently the US has continuously conducted manoeuvres of war provocation jointly with south Korea by enlisting huge armed forces and military hardware, including nuclear-powered submarines, such as Key Resolve and Foal Eagle war rehearsals.
To cope with the ever more undisguised anti-DPRK policies and nuclear war games by the US, the DPRK has taken resolute measures. One of them was the missile launches taken place in the DPRK.
The Korean army and people hold it as their steadfast principle and firm will to answer the provocation with immediate counterattack and return a sacred war of national reunification for a war of aggression.
The DPRK knows no idle talk and is countering the nuclear threats by the hostile forces with nuclear weapons, and their missiles with the same ones.
July 27, V-day of the Korean people, will shine forever along with the DPRK’s ever-victorious showdowns with the US.

KIM JONG UN GIVES FIELD GUIDANCE TO CONSTRUCTION SITE OF TERMINAL OF PYONGYANG INT'L AIRPORT
Pyongyang, July 11 (KCNA) -- Supreme Commander of the Korean People's Army Kim Jong Un, first secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea and first chairman of the National Defence Commission of the DPRK, gave field guidance to the construction site of the Terminal of Pyongyang International Airport.
After being briefed on its construction in front of the maps showing its bird's eye view and development and ichnography, he went round the exterior and interior of Terminal No. 2 to learn about the progress made in it.
Noting that the soldier-builders have successfully carried out the construction of the terminal as intended by the party, he said he was pleased with their work. Praising them for having done a lot of work, he indicated the tasks to be fulfilled to wind up the construction and ways to do so.
Stressing that the Terminal of Pyongyang International Airport is like a gateway to Pyongyang and the face of the country, he underscored the need to build it as a proud edifice in the era of the Workers' Party both in architectural style and contents and as befitting the appearance of the highly civilized socialist nation.
It is important to firmly preserve the Juche character in architecture, he said, instructing officials to introduce the world trend and good experience of other countries into the construction of the terminal and, at the same time, make sure that national identity is preserved in it.
He underscored the need to build the arrival lounge, the lounge for departure formalities, departure lounge, resting lounge, interview room and restaurant, etc. for the best convenience of passengers and to be impeccable in the aspects of architectural beauty and formative art.
He underlined the need to equip the terminal with all modern facilities and build service facilities in a peculiar manner and make thorough arrangements for service from now. He proposed a measure for preparing the staff to improve the service and specified tasks and ways for doing so.
He called for building more service facilities including hotel and bus stops near the terminal and energetically pushing forward a project for face-lifting the environment of the area of Sunan where the terminal is located.
He stressed the need for the soldier-builders to enhance their responsibility and role and for the Cabinet, the ministries and national institutions to render positive material and moral assistance to the builders in order to finish the construction of the terminal as scheduled.
Noting that the construction of Terminal No. 2 of the airport is the project to which the party pays particular attention, he expressed expectation and conviction that the soldier-builders would successfully complete the project qualitatively and thus build the terminal as an impeccable monumental edifice in the era of Songun.
He was accompanied by Vice Marshal of the KPA Hwang Pyong So, director of the General Political Bureau of the KPA, and KPA Lieut. General Ma Won Chun, director of the Designing

SPOKESMAN FOR NDC POLICY DEPARTMENT DENOUNCES U.S., S. KOREAN AUTHORITIES FOR RECKLESS MILITARY MOVES
Pyongyang, July 12 (KCNA) -- The spokesman for the Policy Department of the National Defence Commission of the DPRK Saturday released the following statement:
The U.S. is always preoccupied with aggression and interference.
On Friday the U.S. suddenly hurled the flotilla of the nuclear carrier George Washington into the Pusan Port of south Korea again.
That day the group of Aegis Destroyer Kid under the Third Fleet of the U.S. imperialist aggression forces entered the Tonghae Port of south Korea.
What is surprising is that these pirate warship groups entered the south Korean ports at the earnest request of the south Korean puppet authorities and amid their noisy welcome though they should have thought twice before doing so.
It was reported that those groups would stage a "drill to intercept planes" accompanied by naval maneuvers targeted against the DPRK together with the south Korean naval force in the South and East seas of Korea from July 16.
From July 22 they mull staging a large naval joint drill in waters off Jeju Island with warships of the Japanese aggression forces involved.
What should not be overlooked is that these grave maneuvers are slated to take place in defiance of the special proposal sent by the NDC of the DPRK to the south Korean authorities for improving the north-south relations and ensuring peace on the Korean peninsula and a meaningful statement issued by the DPRK government.
The planned reckless military actions of the U.S. and south Korea are another open challenge to the sincere efforts of the army and people of the DPRK to defuse the tension on the peninsula and create peaceful atmosphere.
They are, at the same time, a blatant effrontery to chill the desire and wishes of all Koreans to mend the north-south relations and achieve national reconciliation and cooperation.
In February, too, the U.S. sent a formation of nuclear-capable strategic bombers to south Korea, deliberately creating a phase of confrontation when there was a sign of reconciliation between the north and the south.
Whenever there was a sign of improving the north-south relations and detente on the peninsula, the U.S. resorted to sinister interference and obstructions.
These actions on the part of the U.S. were prompted by its scenario to retain a grip on south Korea and Japan and lay a siege to the continent in a bid to keep an unchallenged edge in the Asia-Pacific region.
What matters is that the south Korean puppet forces steeped in sycophancy and submission are pursuing this sinister scenario of the U.S. and persistently introducing nuclear strike means of the U.S. imperialist aggression forces, making constant nuclear blackmail and posing serious threat to compatriots.
However, the army and people of the DPRK are not afraid of the U.S. nuclear blackmail and threat little short of its "gunboat diplomacy" in the last century.
The U.S. should properly understand that the more persistently it resorts to reckless nuclear blackmail and threat, the further the DPRK will bolster up its cutting edge nuclear force for self-defence always ready to go into action.
The south Korean puppet forces would be well advised not to miscalculate that their act of depending on the U.S. and toeing its line is the only way out for them. They should come to their senses and seek a way out from the standpoint of attaching importance to the nation and giving priority to it.
They should bear in mind that now is the time to make a proper option at the present when various issues between the north and the south are high on agenda.

The U.S. and south Korean authorities should always remember that the army and people of the DPRK together with the world people are watching with high vigilance their anachronistic reckless military moves.

THE ENDS OF THE “EVER-VICTORIOUS” GENERALS OF THE US
In the Korean War (June 1950-July 1953) the US, which had been boasting of being the “strongest” in the world, suffered a defeat, the first of its kind in its history. During the war the “ever-victorious” generals of the US met ignominious ends.
GENERAL DEAN BECOMES A POW
During the Second World War General Dean, commanding a division, killed and captured 30 000 German troops in Germany and Austria. In the Philippines he repulsed Japanese forces and entered Manila.
Leading the US 24th Division, famous as an “ever-victorious” division, he went to the Korean front ahead of others. To check the southward advance of the Korean People’s Army (armed forces of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea) and ensure the deployment of the main force of his division, he dispatched Smith-led task force to the Osan line as an advance party. When the task force was annihilated at the first encounter with the KPA forces, he lamented that it was a “shame for the United States of America,” and said that he would “earn confidence in Taejon by fighting a model battle.” However, the division was encircled and wiped out in Taejon by the adroit combat tactics of the KPA combined units. Without caring about the dignity of a general, Dean fled in the uniform of a private soldier before being captured by a rank-and-file soldier of the KPA.
During the Second World War he used to say that to become a POW was the most ignominious thing for a soldier, and in the Korean war, he found himself becoming a POW.
 “GRAVE GENERAL” SMITH
Smith entered the Korean war, leading the 1st Marine Division, which had been called the “flower of the Marine Corps.” During the strategic and temporary retreat by the KPA, he advanced as far as Lake Jangjin in the northern part of the DPRK. The KPA forces encircled and attacked the division, killing its troops en masse. Smith had frozen earth dug by explosion and the corpses as well as his seriously injured soldiers buried there.
His division lost 12 000 troops in the area of the lake. On a vessel carrying the remaining soldiers, the division commander lamented that it had been unprecedented in the 175-year history of the US marines that a commander went his way, leaving so many corpses of his men behind.
It earned him the disgraceful title of “Grave General.”
GENERAL WALKER DIES WHILE FLEEING
Walker had earned fame during the Second World War while advancing to Austria after landing at Normandy.
In the early days of the Korean war he commanded the ground operations of the “UN forces” as the commander of the US 8th Army. He ordered his men: UN soldiers, your hands must not shake even though those who are in front of you are children or the elderly; kill them; by doing so, you will save yourselves from catastrophe and perform your duty as UN soldiers.
On his order, the US soldiers massacred innocent Korean civilians in the areas they occupied temporarily.
Though he clamoured that he would push the frontline to the northern border area of the Korean peninsula before Christmas, the 190 000-strong main force of the 8th Army crumbled. While fleeing with a heavy tank in front, he encountered the KPA’s Second Front units, which had buried land mines and encircled the US forces before attacking them. Eighty US officers, including Walker himself, were killed in the battle.
GENERAL MACARTHUR IS OUSTED
Allied Commander in the Far East, Douglas MacArthur commarded the UN forces from the first day of the Korean war. He enlisted in the Korean front vast amounts of materiel of the US, including the latest weaponry, and elite US forces. Organizing the General Christmas Offensive and other operations and drawing on the experience he had gained during the decades of previous wars, he made desperate efforts to conclude the Korean war in a short period. However, he found himself helpless in front of the counteroffensives offered by the KPA.
Judging that if they continued the war by placing confidence in him, they could be defeated, the US authorities fired him from his post in April 1951, less than one year after they ignited the war. Thus General MacArthur, who had been called a hero of the war in the Pacific, was ousted.
GENERAL RIDGWAY IS RECALLED
After MacArthur was ousted, Matthew Ridgway was appointed to the MacArthur’s post. In the US military circles he had been known as an officer possessed of a strong will and high commanding ability and as an ambitious man who would face death if it was for his career and fame.
He flew to the Korean front in field uniform with two grenades around his neck. He resorted to every means and method to change the tide of the war; he proposed truce negotiations to the DPRK, and at the back organized various military operations, including the summer and autumn offensives. Each time he had to drink a bitter cup: during the period of the Autumn Offensive, the US lost 147 000 troops, 279 tanks and armoured vehicles, 961 planes and other combat equipment. He even had bio-chemical weapons used despite being called “General Pest” and “General Cholera,” but the result was the same.
He was recalled to his country one year after his appointment.
GENERAL CLARK SHEDS TEARS
The US expected a great deal from Mark Clark, who succeeded to Ridgway, because he had received the surrender of the stubborn German forces in Italy and the Italian forces during the Second World War.
Soon after his appointment as commander of the UN forces, he declared that he would “wipe out” the 78 cities in north Korea from the map of the world, and unfolded the Operation Strangulation, aimed at destroying all, burning down all and killing all through carpet bombing. He organized the New Offensive as the last resort, but his dream of demonstrating the strength of the UN forces and win an “honourable truce” was shattered to smithereens. He could not but sign the Korean Armistice Agreement, a document which was as good as an instrument of surrender.

His mother, who received him at an airport, recalled as follows: The dignified mettle and pride were nowhere to be seen, and two streams of tears were trickling down his face.
