Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) on Monday warned of
preemptive nuclear attacks at the United States and South Korea as their
joint military exercises are scheduled to kick off Monday.
The DPRK's National Defense Commission said in a statement carried by
the state media KCNA that the army and people of the DPRK "will make
military counter-action for preemptive attack" and "launch an all-out
offensive" to cope with joint military drills conducted by South Korean
and U.S. troops.
The DPRK's military counter-action will be "more preemptive and
offensive nuclear strike" to cope with the enemies' "most undisguised
nuclear war drills aimed to infringe upon the sovereignty of the DPRK,"
the statement stressed.
Preemptive nuclear strike "is to be made in the order specified by the
Supreme Command of the Korean People's Army in its crucial statement,"
The Supreme Command of the KPA has threatened in its crucial statement
that the first attack target will be South Korea's presidential office
Chongwadae and the second target be the White House and the U.S.
The situation is getting more serious as the war exercises include the
"beheading operation" that aims to remove the DPRK's leadership, said
the statement. The KPA and the people will turn out in the general
offensive to "fully demonstrate the tremendous military muscle with
nuclear force as pivot," it said.
