Thrice-cursed crime provoking Korean war

STATEMENT
By DPRK NDC Spokesperson

The Korean war of aggression ignited by the U.S. imperialists and the south Korean puppet forces was the thrice-cursed crime.

On June 25, 1950 the U.S. imperialists instigated traitor Syngman Rhee to launch a surprise invasion against the DPRK and killed Koreans by the most cruel means and methods and reduced this land to debris.

More than 1.2 million guiltless peaceable civilians were massacred in cold blood by barbarous man-killers hell-bent on aggression and man-hunting and mountains and rivers were drenched with human blood. Planes of the U.S. imperialist aggressors indiscriminately dropped nearly 600 000 tons of bombs and napalm bombs on areas of the DPRK, reducing them to such horrible ashes that not a single house and a piece of brick were left undestroyed.

Human history records the cruelest and the most shuddering crimes committed by the Hitler fascist junta during the Second World War but the atrocities perpetrated by the Yankee imperialists during the Korean war put the Hitler fascists into the shade in brutality, cruelty and barbarity.

But the aggressors could not bring to their knees the heroic people who turned out in do-or-die resistance to defend the sovereignty of the country. Finally, they were compelled to sign the document of surrender before the army and people of the DPRK.

The U.S. imperialists have worked more desperately to ignite a new war in order to realize their scenario of aggression against the DPRK, far from drawing a lesson from the shameful defeat they sustained in the war.

The U.S. imperialists and their lackeys south Korean military gangsters are staging farces of extolling to the sky their war crimes, describing the last Korean war as "the war which checked the north's southward invasion."

All Koreans in the north and the south should courageously turn out in a sacred battle to deal sledge hammer blows at those enemies keen to bring the dark clouds of a nuclear war to the land.

The UN and other international organizations and the world peace-loving people should clearly understand who the arch criminal harassing peace on the Korean peninsula is and resolutely shatter the warmongers' reckless attempt to ignite a war of aggression.

The U.S. and the puppet forces should not run amuck, clearly mindful of the catastrophic consequences to be entailed by the second Korean war.
