The military exercises are “dangerous war rehearsals which fully reveal their aggressive nature” as the United States said plans to examine the feasibility of including a “beheading operation” in the drills, according to a statement issued by the spokesman for the DPRK Foreign Ministry.
The statement warned that in case a war should break out, it would neither be limited to the Korean Peninsula nor be a conventional war.
No one can guarantee that confrontation between the Untied States and the DPRK will not escalate into a global thermonuclear war, it added.
The statement threatened that the DPRK will turn its military counter-actions into “preemptive attacks” as the situation has reached “an uncontrollable grave phase.”
A decisive preemptive attack is the only way for the DPRK to beat back surprise attacks by U.S. ultra-modern military hardware and special forces, it said.
Annual military drills code-named “Key Resolve” and “Foal Eagle” will be jointly staged by South Korea and the United States from March 7 to April 30. The exercises this year are reported to be carried out on the largest-ever scale, mobilizing the highest-tech weapons. Enditem
