A spokesman for the DPRK Foreign Ministry on June 15 (Wednesday) said the country would “further bolster up in quality and quantity the nuclear deterrence for self-defense in face of the US’ reckless war moves and thoroughly foil any slightest military provocation of the enemies with the Korean-style mode of merciless counteraction” in response to a “precision air raid.”  According to KCNA, the Foreign Ministry spox also said:

A strategic information consulting company of the US recently worked out and made public a report titled “Military counteraction to the nuclear issue of north Korea”.

The five-chapter report envisages “precision air raid operation” against nuclear and military facilities in the DPRK to disenable its nuclear capabilities.

The report chose nuclear facilities in Ny’o’ngby’o’n, construction site of an atomic power plant, uranium mines and enrichment facilities as targets of air raid, and envisions making a simultaneous precision air raid on ballistic missiles of the strategic force, bombers of the air force and facilities of making submarines in the DPRK to destroy them at one blow.

To this end, scores of B-2 nuclear strategic bombers and F-22 stealth fighters loaded with large underground penetration bombs are supposed to be mobilized and several Ohio-class nuclear submarines and destroyers are to launch hundreds of Tomahawk cruise missiles.

The open discussion of “precision air raid operation” against the DPRK in the US reveals its undisguised ambition for a war of aggression against the DPRK that has entered an extremely reckless phase.

The publication of the extremely provocative report on precision air raid on nuclear facilities and nuclear force of the DPRK is a clear proof of the fact that the surprise preemptive attack and armed invasion against the DPRK are in the full-dress process of examination and preparation as it is just an extension of the U.S. administration’s extreme sanctions and pressure on the DPRK and moves for a nuclear war against it.

What should not be overlooked is that the dangerous “war scenario” against the DPRK was made public with the U.S.-south Korea joint military exercises due in upcoming August just at hand.

The gravity of the situation lies in that the U.S. is just about to fight a large-scale war for militarily stifling the DPRK, foreseeing that its “precision air raid operation” will inevitably spill over to an “all-out war”.

The U.S. aggressive war moves which are becoming a reality on the Korean peninsula clearly prove once again the validity and the inevitability of the line of the Workers’ Party of Korea on simultaneously pushing forward economic construction and the building of nuclear force.
