The Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of Korea (formerly known as the Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of the Fatherland) released a report on March 23 (Wednesday) concerning “the reckless military provocation of the US and Park Geun Hye (Pak Ku’n-hye) group of traitors of south Korea against the DPRK” that have “gone beyond the tolerance limit.” The CPRK is under the management of the Workers’ Party of Korea [WPK] United Front Department which is currently headed by former military intelligence boss Kim Yong Chol (Kim Yo’ng-ch’o’l). CPRK statements, reports and communiques are a form of Pyongyang’s tactical rhetoric which are provocative reactions to external statements or activities that augment the country’s strategic rhetoric (i.e. statements and reports that originate with the National Defense Commission [NDC] or Supreme Command), a kind of rapid response to the ROK that is not intended to advance the DPRK’s strategic position or telecast substantive policy positions.
According to KCNA, the CPRK said:
At the instigation of the US imperialists the south Korean warmongers dared stage an outrageous “precision strike drill” aimed to destroy the office of the supreme headquarters of the DPRK on March 21 with 16 fighter bombers carrying air-to-surface guided missiles involved.
This is a thrice-cursed provocation to the dignity of the supreme leadership of the DPRK and intolerable hideous confrontation action.
From this moment all the actions of the revolutionary armed forces of the DPRK including the regular units of the Korean People’s Army (KPA), the Workers-Peasant Red Guards, the Young Red Guards and all people will be oriented to launch a retaliatory battle of justice in order to resolutely eliminate the Park Geun Hye group of traitors on this land and under this sky.
The battle to be fought by the DPRK will be the sacred one for devotedly defending the leader and the one for annihilating the enemy without mercy.
We do not hide the fact that it may start inside the Ch’o’ngwadae or near it.
We had already declared that all the dens of the enemy in south Korea including the Ch’o’ngwadae are the primary targets of the ultra-precision strike means of the Strategic Force of the KPA ready to go into action.
The powerful large-caliber multiple rocket launching systems of the invincible KPA artillery units are highly alerted to scorch the Ch’o’ngwadae bossed by Park Geun Hye in a jiffy. Once their buttons are pushed, it is bound to be reduced to a sea in flames and ashes.
The KPA units behind enemy lines to be deployed in the operational theater of the southern part of Korea are fully ready to start a storm operation, lightning operation to conquer the Ch’o’ngwadae and other major targets at one blow any time and mercilessly wipe out Park Geun Hye and other south Korean warmongers.
The US imperialists and the Park group should clearly understand the will of all the service personnel and people of the DPRK to annihilate the enemy as they regard their supreme headquarters and dignity dearer than their own lives.
There’s a limit to our patience.
The US imperialists and the Park group of traitors had better pay heed to the DPRK’s warning that it has done everything required after having access to everything necessary. They would be well advised to behave prudently, if they wish to spend their remaining days.
Once it is determined, the DPRK will launch a preemptive attack operation of Korean style to wipe out not only the Park Geun Hye group of traitors but all big or small strongholds of aggression the way the world has never known.
What the DPRK warns is not hot air.
It will be clearly proved by the miserable end the US and the Park group will meet while going reckless.
