and Miserable Punishment’ to Follow Interception of DPRK
Satellite (Rodong Sinmun, North Korea)
U.S., South Korea, Japan, China and Russia all wrong to oppose Pyongyang’s
launch of a satellite atop a rocket capable of delivering
a nuclear weapon? According to this commentary from North Korea’s state-run RodongSinmun, the U.S.,
Japan and the ‘group of traitors’ running south Korea had better reconsider plans
to intercept the rocket, which is expected to be launched this week, or face an ‘unimaginable’ counterstrike.
On April 5, a
spokesman for the Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of the Fatherland issued
the following statement:
The puppet forces
of south Korea recently bluffed about "intercepting"
a Kwangmyongsong-3 satellite of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea. This
is a fresh provocation.
aligned with the United States are saying that they will track the satellite
projectile’s orbit by mobilizing military hardware, including monitoring
devices, missiles, and an Aegis destroyer, in order to intercept the satellite to
prevent its debris from hitting anything.
meanwhile, is busy with an emergency transfer from Hawaii of an ultra-modern
maritime radar system called "Sea-based X-band Radar system" for the purpose of tracking and
monitoring the satellite and assisting in its interception. Japan is also making
reckless remarks about intercepting satellite if and when its propulsion
systems fall within the Japanese archipelago.
While talking up
the possibility of an "assault and provocation" from someone, the warmongers
of south Korea’s puppet military worked out their
"plan for striking corresponding targets." And without hesitation, they
let loose a spate of balderdash about "striking Pyongyang."
military warmongers, including puppet Defense Minister Kim Kwan-jin,
openly blustered about how they would strike Pyongyang if Seoul were attacked,
claiming that now it is possible to independently "punish" according
to the "right to “self-defense." In the past, their position has been
to blame regulations under the Armistice Agreement and relations with the "U.N.
Command" for having to “restrain themselves” in the face of an attack by
This reckless provocation
kicked up by the puppet group of traitors poses the danger of triggering an
all-out war and is the last-ditch effort of maniacs bent on persecuting others.
The peaceful launch
of the Kwangmyongsong-3 is for the purpose of further developing science and
technology. The legitimacy and transparency of the effort will be fully ensured
during the entire course of the launch. The world has already been made
well-aware of it.
launched its first satellite, several decades have passed and thousands of satellites have
been put into low-earth orbit. And in all of that time, no one has stoked such
reckless confrontation by threatening to intercept a peaceful satellite.
As the saying goes,
"The stick is seen only by the crazy dog." Those obsessed by the idea
of creating confrontation and hostility toward the DPRK
appear to regard the satellite as a nuclear warhead.
But [to make
this mistake] and intercept a satellite launched for peaceful purposes is nothing
but an act of war, and is bound to entail great catastrophe. The question is, are the provocateurs concerned about the consequences?
The call for a
"strike on Pyongyang" is sheer hysteria on the part of the puppet warmongers.
No one should dare encroach on the skies over Pyongyang, the sacred capital of
the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea. Any such person would be gravely
mistaken to think they could survive such an offense.
Such an event
would trigger the miserable end of the puppet group of traitors and everything else
in south Korea.
the puppet group is kicking off a racket of military provocation under the
pretext of "interception" and "attack," asserting that in
league with its master, they would not rule out a war. This is a ridiculous bid
to prevent the satellite launch and comfort its clan, which fears the power of
a DPRK retaliatory strike.
all this are the puppet group’s ulterior motives: to intensify the smear campaign
against the DPRK to justify confrontation; calm discontented
south Koreans; divert public attention; and gloss over
south Korea’s governing crisis, creating a favorable atmosphere for the
shows that as long as such maniacal confrontationists as [South Korean
President] Lee Myung-bak are allowed to exist, people
in the south will neither be able to lead happy lives nor escape the danger of
The group of
traitors should be made well-aware of what policies such as "intercepting"
and "striking Pyongyang" would mean. The army and people of North
Korea will never forgive the reckless military provocations of the enemies.
intrudes on the air or sea territory of North Korea by even an inch, under any
pretext, and anyone who intercepts or collects the debris of its satellite, will
meet with immediate, resolute and merciless punishment from the DPRK.
mete out the most unimaginable and miserable of punishments to its rival if it
dares fire into the skies above the DPRK - Pyongyang,
The causes of
war must be mercilessly rooted out.
The group of
traitors had better bear in mind the grave consequences entailed with its
