    Pyongyang, March 21 (KCNA) -- The United States is a nuclear criminal as it does not hesitate to bring a nuclear holocaust to humankind and a nuclear rogue bereft of reason, preoccupied by nuclear hysteria, says Minju Joson Tuesday in a signed commentary accusing the U.S. of its dangerous moves to maintain an unchallenged edge in the field of the nuclear armed forces and realize its ambition to dominate the world. Drawing attention to the U.S. moves to round off the preparations for a preemptive nuclear attack on the DPRK through the modernization of nuclear weapons, the news analyst goes on:
    The U.S. developed new-type nuclear missiles capable of penetrating underground aimed to destroy underground military facilities in the DPRK and has already decided to deploy them in south Korea on a priority basis. Now it is busy with its moves to develop and deploy the missile defence system (MD) as a prerequisite to realizing its attempt at a preemptive nuclear attack.
    It decided to deploy 20 interceptor missiles in Alaska and two more of them in California by 2007 under the pretext of countering "missile attack" from the DPRK. This cannot be interpreted otherwise than a serious development as the true objective of its moves to bolster MD is to neutralize the defence capability of the DPRK and mount a preemptive nuclear attack on it without much difficulty. The DPRK will increase its war deterrent in every way to foil the U.S. hostile policy toward it and Washington's escalated moves to provoke a new war.
