'Puppets' Given 48 Hours to Remove Giant Speakers (Rodong Sinmun, North
Is the Korean
Peninsula 'inching toward the brink of war,' as the Kim Jong-un
regime says today? Incensed that South Korea has installed massive loudspeakers
on mountains facing the North across the Demilitarized Zone, and after an
exchange of fire across the zone, Pyongyang has delivered an ultimatum to the
South warning that unless the devices directing news and information at the
North are immediately halted within 48 hours, full-scale war will ensue. This is today's report
on Thursday's 'emergency meeting' of North Korean military commanders and
others headed by boy despot Kim Jong-un.
The war maniacs of the puppet south
Korean military have made another grave provocation in the central western sector of
the front [the DMZ] on Thursday afternoon.
They perpetrated reckless actions like firing 36 shells
at Korea People's Army civil police posts under the absurd pretext
that the KPA fired a single shell at the south side. Six
shells struck an area near KPA civil police posts 542
and 543 and the other 15 shells fell near KPA civil
police posts 250 and 251.
There were no victims of the shelling provocation. However, such
reckless shelling of the DPRK's military posts and
its inviolable territory is a serious provocation that can never be pardoned.
Korean despot Kim Jong-un,
apparently frustrated that his troops
are now able to hear broadcasts from the South all too clearly with the
installation of new and more effective loudspeakers on the southern
side of the DMZ, is threatening war unless they are immediately turned
off. Of course, this could have more to do with his weak hold on power,
making it necessary to whip up yet another military confrontation.
The gravity of the situation is that the south Korean puppet
military didn't hesitate to make this provocation even before
confirming where a shell allegedly fired by the KPA
came from and where on its side it fell. Furthermore, they are unaware of whether it was an AA gun
shell, a bullet, a rocket or none of the above.
Shortly ago, the puppet war maniacs resumed broadcasting psychological
warfare across all sectors of the DMZ under the pretext of a doubtful mine
explosion. On Wednesday, they fired shells en masse toward the territory of the DPRK without scientific grounds. All of this is prompted
by a desire to provoke on the part of the south Korean military war maniacs.
In view of the prevailing situation, an enlarged emergency
meeting of the Central Military Commission of the Workers' Party of
Korea was convened Thursday night.
Kim Jong-un Guides Emergency Meeting
Due to continued anti-DPRK
political and military provocations by the U.S. imperialists and south Korean puppet forces, the situation in the country is
now inching toward the brink of a war.
Anti-DPRK psychological war broadcasting,
resumed by the south Korean puppet military gangsters across all sectors of the
front [DMZ or Demilitarized Zone] on the pretext of a questionable "mine
explosion" said to have occurred on August 4 in the western sector of the front
continues day and night. Meanwhile, leaflet-scattering
operations against the DPRK, launched by die-hard
reactionary organizations, has gone beyond tolerable limits.
Psychological war against the DPRK
is in essence an open act of war.
In this regard, the Korean People's Army General Staff, on
August 20, delivered an ultimatum to the puppet south
Korea Defense Ministry that strong military action would immediately be
launched unless anti-DPRK broadcasting halts and all psychological
war equipment is removed within 48 hours.
Nevertheless, the gangsters of the south Korean puppet
military are again frantically provoking the DPRK with
the invented a case of a "shell fired by the north" on the afternoon
of August 20, and under that pretext, have fired dozens of shells on the inviolable
territory of the DPRK - a reckless military action.
Political and military provocations like these on the part
of the south Korean puppet military gangsters are
driving the country into a military crisis.
Given the grave situation, an enlarged emergency meeting of
the Central Military Commission of the Workers' Party of Korea was convened on
the evening of August 20.
The meeting was presided over by Kim Jong-un,
first secretary of the WPK, chairman of the WPK Central Military Commission, first chairman of the DPRK National Defense Commission and supreme commander of

Present were members of the WPK
Central Military Commission, commanding operations officers of the KPA General Staff, commanders of the KPA's
frontline combined units, senior officials of the state security and people's
security organs, leading officials of the WPK Central
Committee and officials in charge of external affairs.
The meeting heard a report of the General Reconnaissance
Bureau of the General Staff of the KPA on how the
enemies committed the military provocation in central western sectors of the
front on the afternoon of Thursday. It examined preparations for launching
operations by the frontline combined units of the KPA
as of 23:00 on Thursday and discussed plans for political and military
counteractions to foil the enemies' moves for war. The meeting also examined
and ratified offensive operational plans of the KPA
Front Command to launch an unavoidable retaliatory strike and counterattack across
the entire length of DMZ.
The Central Military Commission of the WPK
also approved a decision of the KPA General Staff to
send the puppet south Korean Defense Ministry an ultimatum on 17:00 on Thursday,
warning that the KPA would launch a strong military response
unless psychological broadcasting toward the north and the dismantling of all
means for psychological warfare were dismantled within 48 hours.

At the meeting, Kim Jong-un issued
an order to the Korean People's Army supreme commander that the frontline combined
units of the KPA enter a wartime status and are battle
ready to launch surprise operations, and that the area along the front be put in a quasi-war status as of 17:00 on Friday.
Commanders were appointed and dispatched to the relevant
sectors of the front to command military actions to destroy all means for pursuing
psychological warfare unless psychological broadcasting be
halted by the enemies within 48 hours.
The meeting discussed measures to put the party, working
people's organizations, state security, people's security and judicial and
prosecution organs, factories, enterprises, cooperative farms and other units
in relevant areas into a quasi-war stance.
It also set forth the duties and tasks of officials in
charge of external affairs lay out the truth of the prevailing situation caused
