here is the story
In its latest missive against ongoing U.S. and South Korean joint military exercises, a statement issued by North Korea's state-run KCNA called the
war games a "grave situation" and hit out at a U.S. military build-up in the region.
"The [Korean People's Army] side has exercised its utmost patience and restraint, repeatedly urging the U.S. forces side to stop the arms buildup
and large-scale military exercises, threats to the DPRK," the statement said. DPRK is the abbreviation for the Democratic People's Republic of
Korea, the formal name of North Korea.
"However, the U.S. forces side transferred nuclear-powered carrier [USS] Carl Vinson, several F-117 stealth fighters, and a wing of F-15 fighters to
South Korea under the pretext of their participation in the ... joint military exercises now under way in South Korea."
The statement accused the United States of conducting aerial espionage of North Korea almost daily, "thus totally breaching the [armistice agreement]
and putting its attempt at a preemptive attack on the DPRK into practice step by step."
this is another of the long series of NK hostilities i say. and nothing more. however, the best time for a nk first strike is coming soon, once
the war in iraq peaks. then they will have the clearest window through which to see their war realised.
