No One Will Survive DPRK's Retaliatory Strike: Rodong Sinmun
Pyongyang, March 28 (KCNA) -- The revolutionary armed forces of the DPRK will blow up the strongholds of aggression on the earth through precision strikes no matter where they are.
Rodong Sinmun Thursday warns this in a bylined article.
The prevailing situation compels the army and people of the DPRK to make a courageous decision not to pardon the arrogant aggressors but wipe them out through decisive military counteractions.
It is necessary to return fire for fire. If the aggressors brandish a nuclear stick, the Korean People's Army should react to them with a precision nuclear strike. It will reduce those enemies who talk about striking the "base of provocation and commanding forces" to ashes in a twinkle, not giving them a breathing spell.
The U.S. imperialists and their followers had better take serious the capability of strategic missiles that can blow up any target at a single blow under any circumstances and the offensive spirit and might of the revolutionary armed forces who storm the enemy positions and destroy them at a lightning speed.
The U.S. should not overestimate such weaponry as B-52. The KPA has already taken a military measure to counter it.
The aggressors should not feel relieved for being in the mainland or on the other side of the ocean. Gone are the days when there was a verbal exchange.
Not only the U.S. forces and south Korean puppet forces involved in the joint military exercises Foal Eagle but other countries hostile to the DPRK will not be able to escape merciless retaliatory strikes of the KPA.
The high precision strike means of the KPA have coordinates for all enemy targets so that they may strike them any time.

Rodong Sinmun Calls for Punishing Provocateurs
Pyongyang, March 28 (KCNA) -- It is the legitimate right of the DPRK to punish all warmongers crazy in their moves for provocation and war and start a final decisive battle for achieving the country's reunification, says Rodong Sinmun Thursday in a bylined article.
It goes on:
The service personnel and the people of the DPRK who are stronger in independent faith and regard the dignity dearer than their own lives will never allow their dignity to be infringed upon.
The U.S. utterly indifferent to international law and convention on sovereignty is mobilizing "its three major nuclear strike means" in a bid to invade the DPRK and realize the ambition to dominate it. This is an open nuclear blackmail against it.
Shortly ago, the commander of the U.S. forces in south Korea signed a "joint plan to cope with the provocation of a local war" drafted by south Korean military gangsters, giving assurances that should the puppet army commit a military provocation, all the U.S. forces in the mainland and the Pacific would be involved in an all-out nuclear war, using it as a pretext.
The south Korean hooligans, encouraged by the backing of the U.S. master, are kicking up war hysteria, crying out for "a ten-fold punishment." Not content with this, they are making no scruple of hatching a thrice-cursed plot to bring down statues of great Generalissimos Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il, the symbol of the supreme dignity of the DPRK.
Such reckless actions are an intolerable insult to the army and the people of the DPRK who regard the supreme dignity dearer than their own lives.
Gone are days when there was a verbal exchange. Now is the time to finally settle accounts with the aggressors who dare hurt the sovereignty and the supreme dignity of the country and pose a threat to the nation's destiny, and put a definite end to the history of politically-motivated military provocations and tension on this land.
KCNA Commentary on DPRK's Will to Punish Provokers
Pyongyang, March 28 (KCNA) -- The army and people of the DPRK are trembling with towering anger at the U.S. and the south Korean military hooligans who dare insult the dignity of the supreme leadership of the DPRK and go desperate in their moves for confrontation and war.
As disclosed, the "south Korea-U.S. combined forces" operational plan that went public recently contained a sordid plan for hurting the dignity of the supreme leadership of the DPRK by using lethal strike means and methods in possession of the U.S. imperialist aggressor forces and the south Korean puppet army.
The military hooligans are even blustering that they would launch the operation in an "offensive way".
This is a hideous provocative act aimed to hurt the lifeline of the DPRK and break its single-minded unity.
The dignity of the supreme leadership of the DPRK represents the absolute authority of President Kim Il Sung, leader Kim Jong Il and Supreme Commander Kim Jong Un and the primary life of the army and people of the DPRK. This is a well known fact.
The victorious and glorious yesterday and today of the army and people of the DPRK are unthinkable apart from the peerlessly great men of Mt. Paektu. The same can be said of the bright tomorrow of the DPRK.
Therefore, they are hardening their will to build human fortress around the peerlessly great men and devotedly defend them.
The U.S. and the south Korean military gangsters do not hesitate such hideous politically-motivated terrorism targeting the unbreakable single-minded unity in the DPRK.
They dared point their fingers at the dignity of the supreme leadership of the DPRK, the worst provocation and an open declaration of a war against it.
We can no longer remain an onlooker to the grim situation in which the sovereignty of the country and the dignity of its supreme leadership are ruthlessly violated and the U.S. nuclear threats and blackmail are turning into a reality.
The DPRK will demonstrate its tremendous military capacity and take the toughest counteraction to show the world what a miserable end those who provoke even a bit the dignity of the supreme leadership of the DPRK meet.
The provokers will never be able to survive but meet the fate of forlorn wandering spirit in the face of merciless punishment by the arms of Songun.

Kim Jong Un Has Photo Session with Participants in Meeting of Information Workers of Whole Army
Pyongyang, March 28 (KCNA) -- Supreme Commander of the Korean People's Army Kim Jong Un, first secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea and first chairman of the National Defence Commission of the DPRK, Thursday had a photo session with the participants in the meeting of information workers of the whole army.
When he appeared in the photographing site, all the participants enthusiastically welcomed him with rousing cheers of "hurrah!," looking up to him, who is leading the all-out action for defending the sovereignty of the country and the dignity of the nation to victory after making a final decision to demonstrate the resolute will of the KPA with practical military actions to cope with the grave situation where the U.S. anti-DPRK hostile acts have reached the brink of a nuclear war.
Acknowledging their enthusiastic cheers, he extended a warm salute to all information workers who are registering great achievements in improving and strengthening the ideological work in the KPA, bearing deep in mind the noble mission and duty they assumed before the times and the revolution.
The meeting marked a historic occasion in providing a new landmark for bringing about a great turn in the ideological work of the KPA as required by the modeling of the whole army on Kimilsungism-Kimjongilism, he said, adding that at the meeting the enthusiasm of information workers to remain loyal to the WPK's line on turning the KPA into the army strong in ideology was fully manifested.
Warmly congratulating the participants in the meeting on having successfully carried out their work amid high enthusiasm and earnest participation, he had a photo taken with them.
He expressed expectation and conviction that all the information workers of the KPA would conduct more dynamic frontline-style information and agitation activities to make the hearts of the KPA soldiers burn with the towering resentment at the brigandish U.S. imperialists and the south Korean puppet group of traitors, the will to annihilate enemies and ardent desire for national reunification.
Present there were Choe Ryong Hae, Hyon Yong Chol, Kim Kyok Sik, Kim Kyong Ok, Son Chol Ju, Ryom Chol Song and Jo Kyong Chol.
CPRK Spokesman Issues Statement
Pyongyang, March 28 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of Korea (CPRK) on Thursday issued the following statement:
Shortly ago, the U.S. and south Korean puppet group cooked up a "joint plan to cope with the provocation of a local war," escalating the danger of a war.
The joint plan signed by the commander of the U.S. forces in south Korea and the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff of south Korea calls on the U.S. forces to automatically get involved in the conflict in case of the north's "provocation of a local war" and thus jointly counter it together with the south Korean puppet army.
The plan for aggression elaborates on the contents of the operation and proposals on joint counteraction.
In this regard, the south Korean puppet group claims that a legal and institutional mechanism has been provided to ensure the U.S. forces' automatic involvement in the local war, the U.S. agreed with the principle on striking not only the base of provocations and supporting and commanding forces and that it has become possible to make a prompt and decisive counteraction against any provocation by the north.
All these facts brought the U.S. hypocrisy to daylight and proved that the U.S. and south Korea are the root cause and chieftain of the provocation of a local war.
The above-said joint plan is a very dangerous document for invading the DPRK and an open declaration of a war of aggression against it.
Any conflict on the Korean Peninsula will immediately lead to an all-out war and a nuclear war, not confined to a local war.
The Armistice Agreement, the north-south agreements on nonaggression and the joint declaration on denuclearization of the peninsula were totally nullified due to the grave provocations of the U.S. and the puppet group. Consequently, there is no mechanism to deter a war.
Worse still, the U.S. and puppet warmongers are openly hatching sinister plots to bring down the statues of the great Generalissimos and monuments to them, symbols of the dignity of the supreme leadership of the DPRK. In order to counter these moves, the Supreme Command of the Korean People's Army has already declared military actions against the U.S. mainland and the bases of the U.S. imperialist aggressor forces in Hawaii, Guam and the Pacific, to say nothing of the military targets and enemy ruling institutions in south Korea.
Have the U.S. and puppet warmongers imagined what catastrophic consequences to be entailed by the "joint plan for countering the provocation of a local war" at this time?
They are seriously mistaken if they try to threaten the DPRK with such farce.
The hatred and resentment of the DPRK's army and people are running high.
The signing of the plan will increase the justice of practical military actions of the DPRK which keeps not only Chongwadae in Seoul but the White House in Washington within the coordinates of high precision strikes. It is a foolish dream for the puppet group to seek a way out by clinging to coattails of the U.S.
The U.S. nuclear umbrella will never help protect the puppet group as it will prove ineffective in face of the powerful nuclear strikes of the DPRK.
The DPRK's army and people which launched a final sacred war to defend the sovereignty of the country and the dignity of its supreme leadership will make a clean sweep of the U.S., the ringleader of aggression, and the pro-U.S. puppet warmongers from the surface of the earth.
Rodong Sinmun Accuses U.S., S. Korea of Their Joint Operational Plan
Pyongyang, March 28 (KCNA) -- The U.S. and the south Korean authorities signed a "joint plan for countering the provocation of a local war" on March 22 under the pretext of coping with a "provocation" from the DPRK.
The keynote of the war scenario called "joint operational plan" is that the south Korean puppet forces and the U.S. imperialist aggression forces would jointly counter the DPRK's "provocation of a local war."
Rodong Sinmun Thursday in a bylined commentary terms this a product of a dangerous conspiracy between the U.S. and south Korea to ignite a nuclear war on the Korean Peninsula at any cost.
The new document for aggression worked out by them to expand the local war to an all-out war proves that the attempt of the warmongers at invading the DPRK went beyond the danger line to reach the war phase, the commentary says, and goes on:
A nuclear war on the Korean Peninsula has become an established fact.
The above-said "plan" can serve as a fuse of a nuclear war.
In actuality, the U.S. and the puppet warmongers are working hard to provoke a nuclear war against the DPRK.
Short time ago, the U.S. let B-52 formation deployed in Anderson air force base on Guam and nuclear-powered submarine make sorties into the Korean Peninsula and opened to the public their drills unprecedentedly, kicking up war hysteria.
The puppet forces are also going on the rampage, crying out for "striking the commanding forces, to say nothing of provocation base" while calling for "punishment."
Their war hysteria has reached the phase of even revealing their thrice-cursed plot targeting the monuments to the immortality and to the achievements of the leaders erected in different parts of the DPRK.
The U.S. and the puppet forces should clearly know that they can never frighten the DPRK with such "plan."
Their "plan" would only precipitate their final ruin.
