U.S. and South Korea to Hold Huge War "Exercises"

The U.S. and South Korean military forces will soon stage the biggest war exercises on the Korean peninsula since the 1950-53 Korean war.

The "games" were announced on February 28, by the joint U.S.-South Korean Combined Forces Command (CFC). According to U.S. officials, hundreds of thousands of troops will take part in the maneuvers from March 21-27. The operation will be the first merging of the "Reception, Staging, Onward Movement and Integration" (RSOI) computerized war games and the annual "Foal Eagle" exercises.

Such exercises are another demonstration of the highly provocative actions taken by the U.S. in recent months, and reveal once again that the U.S. military forces in Korea remain the number one source of war and conflict on the peninsula. In addition to the numerous war games initiated by the U.S. recently, the U.S. has also sent huge amounts of new, highly sophisticated arms to the South Korean army and announced just recently that it is planning to sell the sophisticated "Aegis" anti-aircraft system to the South Korea military.

The U.S. is intentionally stirring up conflict on the Korean peninsula because it refuses to recognize the sovereignty of the Korean people and desperately wants to maintain its economic and strategic foothold in the region.
