U.S. PERIODICALLY RENDERS SITUATION OF KOREAN PENINSULA STRAINED: KCNA COMMENTARY
Pyongyang, April 4 (KCNA) -- The UN Security Council recently committed an act of "denouncing" the DPRK's justifiable rocket launching drills at the baton of the United States. This is an outrageous deed and a serious challenge to the universal understanding of the international community since the UNSC, which should regard impartiality as its principle of action, sided with the U.S., an assailant who sued the victim. Anyone can easily discern the reversed logic, if she or he approaches with unbiased view of the situation prevailing on the Korean Peninsula. In fact, it is none other than the U.S. that has cyclically and intentionally screwed up the situation of the Korean Peninsula. Now the danger of war comes from the massive shipment of military hardware into south Korea and the ceaseless nuclear war exercises there, the outcome of the U.S. hostile policy towards the DPRK. As was known, an atmosphere of detente had prevailed in the Korean Peninsula in recent months, thanks to the goodwill steps taken by the DPRK for regional peace and stability and improved north-south relations. But the U.S., displeased with such developments, kicked off the Key Resolve and Foal Eagle joint military exercises with the south Korean puppet forces after introducing its huge aggression troops and lethal weapons into south Korea. Worse still, on March 27 they launched the Ssangryong drill, mainly aimed to "occupy Pyongyang," with the largest-ever forces since 1993 involved. So, it is quite natural for the DPRK's army to have made full preparations under the prevailing grave situation as its mission is to protect the security of the country and its people and defend peace. In particular, the rocket launching of the DPRK was part of the regular self-defensive military drills of its army to cope with the U.S. hostile policy toward the DPRK that has persisted for decades century after century and its intensified nuclear war games. The U.S. defends its joint military exercises in other's land as "regular" while condemning the self-defensive drills of the DPRK army in its land "provocative". Such gangster-like assertion is not workable on anyone. The U.S. should not run amuck. If a catastrophic event occurs on the Korean Peninsula, the U.S. will never flee from the responsibility for it.
