Meanwhile, a U.S. Air Force F-16 takes off Monday on the first sortie of a week-long operational readiness exercise at Osan air base, South Korea.

About 9:30 a.m. Pyongyang time Thursday, the Korean Central Broadcasting Station transmitted the following message:

We inform all soldiers and residents! This is an air raid warning. This is an air raid warning. This is an air raid warning. Military units and units of all levels must quickly take measures to prevent damage from the enemy’s air strikes. This is an air raid warning. This is an air raid warning. This is an air raid warning. Military units and units of all levels must quickly take measures to prevent damage from the enemy’s air strikes. This is the Korean People’s Army Broadcasting Station.

An hour passed before KCBS followed up that report with this:

This is the Korean People’s Army Broadcasting Station. We inform all residents and soldiers: The air raid warning is lifted. The air raid warning is lifted. The air raid warning is lifted.

Heck of a way to start your day, no?

In the past, such warnings have been restricted to a cable-distributed system piped into homes, not over the public airwaves. The move suggests North Korea’s evident concern over recent B-52 flights, U.S. intelligence analysts say.

North Korea is concerned because of US violations of the Armistice Agreement.  The United Nations and North Korea are still in a state of war. The 1953 Armistice Agreement was supposed to presage a peaceful settlement and the withdrawal of all foreign troops.

agreement excerpt:
 ** with the objective of establishing an armistice which will insure a complete cessation of hostilities and of all acts of armed force in Korea until a final peaceful settlement is achieved,**

The U.S persists in conducting acts of armed force in Korea for no other reason than to provoke North Korea. The armed forces of ROK and Japan greatly out-number the forces of the impoverished DPRK so there is no reason for US forces to even be there. Except to feed the Pentagon, that is.
