Aggressive Nature and Danger of Realignment of U.S. Forces Disclosed

   Pyongyang, May 27 (KCNA) -- With no crafty moves can the U.S. imperialists conceal the aggressive nature and danger of the realignment of their forces frantically stepped up under the pretext of "troop reduction" to dominate the world, observes Rodong Sinmun Saturday in a signed article. What the U.S. seeks in pushing ahead with its military realignment under that signboard is to introduce a new method of waging a blitzkrieg by mobilizing its units relatively small in size but fast in maneuverability, unlike the method of conducting a large war by deploying its forces along vast fronts as it did in the past, the article notes, and goes on:
    The United States is talking about "troop reduction" in some areas but shifting its forces to other places instead of cutting down its overall forces.
    It is the invariable intention of the U.S. to put the areas of military strategic importance and major areas rich in natural resources in the world under its control.
    It is setting up its military bases in different parts of the world and forward-deploying its forces for aggression there in a bid to put military pressure upon and attack those countries with differing ideologies and social systems.
    Northeast Asia is drawing special attention in the realignment of the U.S. forces overseas.
    The U.S. imperialists are staging the farce of flexibly relocating their forces in south Korea for the purpose of getting them swiftly involved in regional disputes under the signboard of "strategic flexibility". Moves are being stepped up to reorganize the U.S. Second Division in south Korea into a "task force operating in vast region" capable of conducting an "independent long-distance operation".
    The danger of the relocation of the U.S. forces in south Korea lies in that it is aimed to expand its operation sphere not only to the Korean Peninsula but to the Asia-Pacific region so as to mount a preemptive attack on countries in the region.
    The relocation of the U.S. forces in south Korea presupposes a preemptive nuclear attack. The U.S. bellicose forces are getting frantic in their moves to modernize nuclear weapons and establish the Missile Defense system while massively deploying task forces in and around south Korea.
    The realignment of the U.S. forces aimed at holding military hegemony in the Asia-Pacific region finds its manifestation in beefing up its forces in Japan.
    Lurking behind this realignment is its aim to use Japan as a shock force for igniting a new Korean war.
