The Supreme Command of the Korean People's Army made public the following report Monday as regards the U.S. imperialists and the Lee Myung Bak group of traitors kicked off the large-scale Ulji Freedom Guardian joint military exercises for aggression despite of the DPRK's repeated warnings and strong protest and denunciation of the public at home and abroad:I wonder how close we are to seeing threats of "merciless and prompt annihilating strike" in the Iranian press.
The adventurous war maneuvers for aggression to be staged from August 17 to 27 will massively involve more than 10,000 U.S. imperialist aggression troops based in south Korea and overseas, at least 56,000 troops of the puppet army including those of corps, fleets and air division-level commands and above them and, over 400,000 members of puppet administrative organs and military and non-military businesses and other huge forces and all sorts of lethal means.
What merits special attention is that the saber-rattling is base on the new scenario for more vicious joint operation to invade the DPRK replacing the "OPLAN 5027", scenario for the second Korean war of aggression.
The said provocative exercises are a blatant challenge and grave threat to the peace on the Korean Peninsula and the rest of Asia as they are aimed to launch aggression and mount a surprise preemptive strike on the DPRK in the light of their contents, nature and scale, to all intents and purposes.
The army and people of the DPRK will never remain a passive on-looker to the prevailing touch-and-go situation where dark clouds of a nuclear war are gathering to hang heavily over the inviolable territory of their country.
It is the invariable stand and attitude of the KPA to react to the enemy's arms with artillery pieces, "sanctions" with merciless retaliation and "confrontation" with an all-out confrontation.
The KPA Supreme Command issued the following order, proceeding from its sacred mission to defend the sovereignty and dignity of the nation and devotedly safeguard the socialist homeland of the DPRK:
1. The entire army, all the people and the whole country shall be put on a special alert from August 17, 2009.
2. The units of the KPA three services and all members of the Korean People's Security Forces, the Worker-Peasant Red Guards and the Young Red Guards shall closely follow all the moves of the aggressors with high revolutionary vigilance and make an immediate strong attack on perpetrators of any hostile act of intruding the sky, land and seas of the country.
3. All the people shall bring about a new leaping forward in the 150-day campaign to step up the building of a great prosperous and powerful socialist nation in tense and mobilized posture as required by the present acute situation.
The order of the KPA Supreme Command is a just self-defensive measure to protect the supreme interests of the country and nation from the reckless moves of the warmongers to invade the DPRK.
Should the U.S. imperialists and the south Korean puppets commit even the slightest military provocation infringing upon the DPRK's sovereignty, its revolutionary armed forces grown stronger with the might of Songun will mount a merciless and prompt annihilating strike at the aggressors with all offensive and defensive means including nuclear deterrent involved.

"KPA Supreme Command Orders Army, People and Country to Be on Special Alert"
I would say they are on "Red Alert," but they're communists: every alert is Red Alert. I like the bit about how they are ordered to make "a new leaping forward" "in tense and mobilized posture." Maybe they could leap farther if they relaxed a bit?
