Rodong Sinmun Terms Realignment of U.S. Forces Offensive Redeployment of Forces
Pyongyang, May 25 (KCNA) -- The realignment of U.S. forces in the Asia-Pacific region is obviously an offensive redeployment of forces aimed at world domination, says Rodong Sinmun Friday in a bylined article.

It goes on:

The U.S. and Japan recently made public a joint document on the review of the relocation plan of U.S. forces in Japan.

According to this plan, 9 000 out of 19 000 U.S. Marines in Okinawa will be transferred to Guam, Hawaii, Australia, etc.

The U.S. seeks to lay a network of siege linking Okinawa,Taiwan, etc. and deploy U.S. Marines in Guam, Australia and Hawaii on a rotation basis in a bid to round it off.

It is the scenario of the U.S. to complete a siege to other powers in the Asia-Pacific region and promptly hurl its forces any time it deems necessary in a bid to achieve its military purpose.

The U.S. deployed six aircraft carriers out of 11 in the Asia-Pacific region and more than 200 warships of various types and over 6 500 nuclear weapons, etc.

Pursuant to its air battle-oriented war methods, the U.S. deployed strategic bombers and other assault aircraft in Japan and other regions and keeps them combat-ready.

It admits of no argument that the realignment of U.S. forces in Asia-Pacific is nothing but a redeployment of forces for containing the regional countries and mounting a preemptive attack on them any time.

What matters is to where the spearhead of U.S. military attack is directed. The DPRK is the primary target of its attack.

Under "OPLAN 5027", a scenario for a war against the DPRK, the U.S. imperialists seek to hurl 690 000 troops, 160 warships, 2 500 fighters, etc., after starting a war, pursuant to "the plan for dispatching reinforcements in wartime," a plan calling for a prompt deployment of U.S. forces on the Korean Peninsula in case of "contingency".

The U.S. intends to bolster the mobile strike power and long-range operation capability of the U.S. forces in south Korea and stifle the DPRK with its unchallenged military edge and advance into the continent.

It is, however, an anachronistic daydream for the U.S. to calculate that it can achieve its objective by a preemptive attack-oriented war method.
