U.S. Reorganization of Its Troops in S. Korea Assailed

    Pyongyang, March 26 (KCNA) -- The U.S. imperialist aggression forces in south Korea are being reorganized into combat forces with a new mission. Commenting on this, Minju Joson Saturday says:
    The U.S. intention is to convert its troops in south Korea into a "task force" equipped with new ultra modern weapons and medium- and long-range offensive means, make a preemptive nuclear attack on the DPRK and dominate the whole of Korea.
    The second division of the U.S. army constitutes the main unit of the U.S. troops in south Korea, which is the first to be reorganized and relocated.
    Originally, the U.S. has planned to reorganize its troops in south Korea including the second division into combat forces with a new mission by 2007 and increase their capacity to fight a war according to the arms buildup plan of its forces in south Korea. But it hastened the conversion of the above-said ground division whose majority was infantry into a "task force" equipped with strong fire power and high maneuverability two years earlier than scheduled and its relocation into the place of strategic importance.
    This is a clear proof that the U.S. is giving spurs to its moves to prepare for a preemptive nuclear attack on the DPRK.
    The U.S. had better pull back its forces from south Korea at an early date, not recklessly resorting to the reorganization of its troops for increasing their capability to carry out a war.
