Rodong Sinmun Tuesday says this in a bylined article.
The group of traitors on the deathbed is making last-ditch efforts by resorting to more challenging methods for escalating confrontation against reunification, the article says.
It goes on:
The situation has now reached the phase that can no longer be overlooked. To cope with this situation the revolutionary armed forces of the DPRK issued a solemn notice that resolute special actions would soon be launched to mercilessly destroy the bases of provocations. The special actions would represent a patriotic and just war for firmly defending the dignity of the supreme leadership of the nation and realizing the cherished desire of all the Koreans at home and abroad for the nation's reunification, peace and prosperity.
The will of the DPRK to launch a resolute retaliatory war is to root out the source of war and confrontation from the Korean Peninsula.
Too clear is that no threatening words can work on such traitors as they are seized by the ambition of escalating confrontation between social systems and kicking up war hysteria to invade the DPRK, clean indifferent to the national reunification and the destiny of the nation.
The Lee group of conservatives is steeped in sycophantic treachery to the marrow of their bones and born with vicious nature against the nation and the people. As long as it is allowed to stay in power, it would be impossible to realize the desire of the people for independence, democracy and reunification.
The just retaliatory war will rid the Korean nation of the military demarcation line and bring reunification to it.
Those who dare hurt the dignity of the supreme leadership of the DPRK and its social system will never go scot-free, whoever and wherever they are. The enemies of national reunification fated to be wiped out by the army and people of the DPRK are just a handful and no time will be taken in throwing them into the dustbin of history. -0-
