Pyongyang, April 18 (KCNA) — The reorganization and redeployment of the U.S. troops around the Korean Peninsula now under way under the pretext of the “threat” from the DPRK are nothing but the forward-deployment of attack
forces according to a new war scenario to invade the DPRK, says Rodong Sinmun Monday in a signed commentary.
The commentary goes on:
The U.S. war scenario is aimed to deploy nuclear-armed task groups strong in offensive power and fast in maneuverability and thus stifle the DPRK by a preemptive attack and seize the whole of Korea. In carrying out this scenario the U.S. pins a big hope on Japan.
There are many U.S. military bases in the Japan proper and Okinawa near from the Korean Peninsula. They are operating as advance bases for the U.S. troops in Northeast Asia. Without using Japan the U.S. would hardly deploy huge aggressor armed forces to launch military actions in Northeast Asia.
For this reason, the U.S. intends to keep its marine forces in Okinawa and transfer the command of the first army corps to Camp Zama in Japan from the U.S. mainland in a bid to round off the system of the operation command over the U.S. troops stationed there.
Herein lies the U.S. dangerous attempt to retain its grip on Japan as a strategic stronghold for mounting a preemptive attack upon the DPRK and maintaining and strengthening its military supremacy in the Asia-Pacific region and to use Japan as a shock brigade.
Under the grave situation where the country stands at the crossroads of a war or peace, the DPRK has made its all efforts to bolster its national defence capability to prevent the war and defend the sovereignty of the country.
The DPRK’s nuclear weapons serve as main deterrent to avert a war and ensure peace and security in the Korean Peninsula and the rest of Northeast Asia.
