Pushing Korean peninsula to constant danger of war

By KPA Panunjom Mission

The Panmunjom mission of the Korean People's Army on Wednesday released a detailed report condemning the U.S. for pushing the Korean peninsula to constant danger of a war and imposing unspeakable misfortune and pain on the Korean nation.

The U.S. has deliberately aggravated the situation on the peninsula by violating the Armistice Agreement, the legal mechanism to prevent the recurrence of a war.

The U.S. signed the "mutual defense treaty" with the south Korean puppet forces on August 8, 1953, thus legitimizing the permanent presence of the U.S. imperialist aggressors in south Korea. This was a blatant violation of Paragraph 60 of Article 4 of the AA which calls for withdrawing all foreign forces from Korea and peacefully settling the Korean issue.

It systematically breached Paragraph 13 d which bans the introduction into Korea of all arms and equipment, Paragraph 23 of Article 2 related to activities of the mechanism for monitoring and controlling military hostilities and the relevant paragraphs of the AA which call for ceasing all hostilities against the other party.

The U.S. moves to totally scrap the AA reached an extreme phase when it let a "general" of the south Korean puppet army having neither reason nor qualifications hold the post of a senior member of the "Military Armistice Commission" in 1991.

The mechanisms to supervise the implementation of the AA which were formed according to the AA ceased to exist due to the U.S. undisguised challenge and obstructive moves.

After getting AA buried in history, the U.S. began to direct all its efforts to committing vicious military provocations to invade the DPRK.

After diverting the basic orientation of its strategy for world domination to the Asia-Pacific region in the 1990s, the U.S. set the DPRK as the primary target of its "East Asia strategy." It steadily revised and supplemented all scenarios for a war against the DPRK including OPLAN 5027 and OPLAN 5030 and finally round them off.

To this end, the U.S. massively reinforced latest destructive weapons targeting the DPRK, perpetrated reckless military provocations and steadily intensified large-sale war maneuvers.

The U.S. has staged a total of at least 18 000 war maneuvers for invading the DPRK and joint military exercises in and around south Korea since the ceasefire, counting only those opened to public.

The situation prevailing on the Korean peninsula is so gravest that a nuclear war may break out any moment, the report said, and continued:

It was the period of the last Korean war that the Korean nation was exposed to the nuclear threat and blackmail for the first time.

The then war boss Truman made several attempts to drop A-bomb on the DPRK to recover from the repeated heavy setbacks in the Korean war.

The U.S. blackmailed the DPRK with nuclear bombs, threatening to reduce it to debris. This left towering grudge in the minds of Koreans. Since the end of the 1950s, the U.S. began to massively introducing nuclear weapons into south Korea.

As early as in the 1970s the U.S. turned south Korea into the area with the biggest density in the deployment of nuclear weapons in the world.

Early in the 1980s it brought even neutron bombs to south Korea.

After turning south Korea into the world's biggest outpost for nuclear attack and nuclear arsenal, the U.S. worked desperately to use those nuclear weapons with various missions in fighting a war of aggression against the DPRK.

Focus Retina, Freedom Bolt, Team Spirit, RSOI, Key Resolve, Foal Eagle, Ulji Freedom Guardian and all other joint military exercises which it has staged so far since the 1960s were all aimed to bolster the actual nuclear war capabilities in south Korea.

In fact, the U.S. attempted the direct use of nuclear weapons, while openly designating the DPRK, the non-nuclear state, as a target of a preemptive nuclear attack on several occasions.

In the "quadrennial defense strategy review report" the U.S. defined the DPRK as "state posing direct threat" and the "biggest rival" and blustered that in case its "deterrence strategy" fails, it will contain the DPRK by use of nuclear force. This revealed to what reckless phase its ambition to stifle the DPRK with nukes has reached.

Obama in a recent public appearance did not utter even a word about the moves of the U.S. as the arch criminal who spawned the nuclear issue of the Korean peninsula and posed the nuclear threat and blackmail but let loose a whole string of provocative outbursts that he would continue to pressurize the north to denuclearize, while groundlessly taking issue with the nuclear deterrence of the DPRK. This once again revealed its attempt to persist in the moves to ignite a nuclear war against the DPRK.

After the armistice mechanism became defunct, there took place hundreds of big and small talks and contacts including 16 rounds of general-level talks and more than 200 rounds of colonel-level working talks between the DPRK and the U.S. But no progress was made in the discussions on matters of establishing a new peace-keeping mechanism due to the deliberate and unjustifiable behavior of the U.S. forces side.

Only merciless punishment and fist, not word, will work on the U.S. as it regards aggression and war as the mode of its existence.

The army and people of the DPRK are waiting for the moment to settle accounts with the U.S. which posed constant nuclear war threat to the Korean peninsula and imposed untold misfortune and sufferings on it.
