    Pyongyang, March 23 (KCNA) -- The bellicose elements of the United States are working hard to reorganize its forces in south Korea into "task forces operating in the wide region" while speeding up the moves to modernize nuclear weapons and build the missile defense system. This is a dangerous criminal act to seriously threaten the peace and stability in the Asia-Pacific region and permanently preserve its military supremacy over the region. Rodong Sinmun Wednesday observes this in a signed commentary. It goes on:
    The commander of the second division of the U.S. forces in south Korea disclosed that an intensive work is now under way to reorganize the division into a "future-oriented division" capable of conducting a long-range operation at an army corps-level.
    This brought to light the dangerous attempt of the U.S. bellicose forces to reorganize the U.S. forces in south Korea into the above-mentioned forces in a bid to take hold on the Korean Peninsula as a strategic vantage point and maintain its military supremacy in the Asia-Pacific region.
    The U.S. replaced its strategy of "deterrence and blockade" dating back to the Cold War era by a strategy for preemptive attack. Pursuant to this strategy, it seeks to mount a preemptive nuclear attack on the DPRK, Russia and China, if necessary. Precisely for this reason the U.S. bellicose forces are getting frantic with their moves to modernize nuclear weapons and build the missile defense system while massing task forces in and around south Korea.
