This scheme is a foolish trick aimed to incite the "theory of nuclear threat from the north" on the point of collapse, justify the nuclear war moves against the DPRK and divert elsewhere the public attention to win in the forthcoming elections.
The Lee Myung Bak group, which has become as good as dead after being isolated by south Koreans, tries to refurbish its image by holding a "summit" with help of the

We will never overlook such nuclear confab doing harm to the dignified DPRK and rendering the situation of the peninsula and region more strained but decisively smash the anti-DPRK nuclear racket by disturbers and wreckers of peace with the invincible might of Songun.
Pyongyang, February 27 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the Foreign Ministry of the DPRK in a statement Monday denounced the U.S. and south Korea for starting the provocative Key Resolve and Foal Eagle joint military exercises defying repeated warnings of the DPRK and neighboring countries.

No Limit to Striking Intensity and Range of Our Army and People: Spokesman for DPRK National Defence Commission
The Lee Myung Bak group of traitors has embarked upon the road of kicking off again DPRK-targeted Key Resolve and Foal Eagle joint military exercises in league with the brigandish
imperialists, defying strong domestic and foreign public protest and
Huge troops of the
U.S. imperialist aggressor forces and their
strike means have already been deployed in and in its vicinity and

Key Resolve and Foal Eagle are unpardonable war hysteria kicked up by the hooligans to desecrate our mourning period and an unpardonable infringement upon our sovereignty and dignity.
This is, at the same time, a blatant challenge to peace and security on the
and an undisguised act of disturbing them. Korean Peninsula
The on-going development goes to prove that the Lee group which is more dead than alive, forsaken by the times, is still resorting to the last-ditch moves for war, backed by its American master.
In view of the prevailing situation, the National Defence Commission of the DPRK clarifies the following principled stand internally and externally:
First. Our army and people will foil the moves of the group of traitors to the nation and warmongers at home and abroad for a new war with a sacred war of our own style.
We have so far made every possible effort to avert a war and defend peace with a high degree of patience and magnanimity.
The Lee group and the warmongers at home and abroad are, however, unhesitatingly plunging to the road of an adventurous war, dreaming of "Egyptian style change" and "Libyan style victory", ignorant of who their rival is.
War maneuvers staged against the belligerent party are, in essence, a silent declaration of a war.
The declaration of the war is bound to be accompanied by a corresponding physical retaliation.
Now that a war has been declared against us, the army and people are firmly determined to counter it with a sacred war of our own style and protect the security of the nation and the peace of the country.
The target of this war is the Lee group and hordes of warmongers at home and abroad.
The Lee group is hordes of traitors for all ages as it is rubbing salt into the wound of the compatriots grieving over the great loss to the nation through a renewed saber-rattling, not content with the high treason it had already committed during that period.
imperialists are the sworn enemy keen to launch another war of aggression to
impose "American style political mode" upon us, not content with the
painful tragedy of division forced upon our nation, the tragedy that has lasted
for more than half a century. U.S.
The sacred war will make a clean sweep of the Lee group and those warmongers from this land by the war mode of our own style, our strong striking means unknown to the world.
Second. The just struggle of the people in the south and overseas compatriots will be further intensified to bring down the Lee regime under the motto of peace against war.
The Lee group is nothing but human scum which had been forsaken by all Koreans already long ago.
"Myung Bak, quit" and "Let's judge the Lee Myung Bak regime and set up a new government for national reconciliation." This is the shout of the political and social circles in
and the mind-set there. south
The Lee regime is little short of a ship in distress which began sinking in face of the stormy waves of the angry public.
We admonished the group enough to make it understand and set an example in the four years of its office and showed it through an actual battle what our strike that turned waters into a sea in flames.
This being a hard reality, the Lee regime is still persisting in sycophancy, submission and treachery, failing to come to its senses.
That is why we branded the group of traitors as the one which should not be let to go scot-free.
In response to the mind-set in the south, our army and people will encourage and firmly back the people in the south and overseas compatriots in their nation-wide struggle to bring down the Lee regime in the idea of attaching importance to the nation and putting it above anything else and from a patriotic stand.
Third. Our army and people will show the
imperialist warmongers hell-bent on war of aggression and intervention what
their arms and real war are like. U.S.
It is the U.S. imperialist aggressors who are chiefly to blame for having driven into a phase of war the unstable situation on the peninsula where neither war nor peace has persisted for such a long period. It is again those warmongers who have staged ceaseless provocative war maneuvers in
and in its vicinity,
pursuant to their scenarios for a war of aggression against the north to
confirm their feasibility. south Korea
In view of the intensified moves of the U.S. imperialists to ignite a war against the DPRK, they will shatter reckless military provocations, arms build-up and war maneuvers with increased posture to fight a resolute battle against the U.S. and launch a struggle of high intensify to drive out of this land the U.S. imperialist aggressor forces, the main hurdle lying in the way of achieving peace and security on the peninsula.
They will always keep the bases of the
imperialist aggressor forces and centers for their military operations against
the DPRK within striking range and wipe them out at a single blow, should they
provoke us. U.S.
Nuclear weapons are not the monopoly of the
We have war means more powerful than the U.S. nukes and ultra-modern
striking equipment which no one has ever possessed. U.S.
mistaken if it thinks it is safe as its mainland is far away across the ocean. U.S.
There is no limit to the striking intensity and range of our army and people to wipe out the aggressors.
It is their unchangeable stand to show the enemy what their arms and real war are like.
The ongoing struggle to bury the group of traitors and warmongers at home and abroad is a patriotic struggle on which the destiny of the nation in the new century of Juche year hinges.
No force on earth can overpower the single-mindedly united army and people of the DPRK.
Under the leadership of the peerless brilliant commander of
they will usher in a new era of national reconciliation and peace and
prosperity proudly and forcefully, shattering every war move of the enemy. -0- Mt. Paektu
