A spokesman for the Strategic Force of the Korean People's Army gave an answer to the question raised by KCNA Friday over a recent mock ICBM shoot-down test of the U.S. imperialists.
The U.S. imperialists conducted a test Tuesday simulating the interception of an ICBM from the DPRK at the Vandenberg Air Force Base in California State, the spokesman said, and went on:
This is just a serious military provocation that brings to light the U.S. imperialists' wild ambition for igniting a nuclear war.
Such risky act is a sign that their preparations for unleashing a nuclear war against the DPRK have reached the final phase.
Their foolhardy moves go to clearly prove that the DPRK's step for bolstering the nuclear force for self-defence is entirely just.
They are now bluffing, bragging about the "success" in the test and the efficiency of the missile interception system. But the DPRK considers it just as a foolish act of those driven to despair.
They are sadly mistaken if they think such missile interception system can prevent the shower of nuclear strike by the Strategic Force of the KPA.
The last-ditch gambling of the Trump administration for a nuclear war will only bring earlier the day when the U.S. mainland will turn into ashes.
