DPRK denounces U.S. 'strategy for supremacy'


08:58, February 09, 2012

PYONGYANG, Feb. 8 (Xinhua) -- The U.S. was accused of seeking to put the Asia-Pacific under its military control in a commentary issued by KCNA, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea's (DPRK) official news agency, on Wednesday.

According to the KCNA, the South Korea-based U.S. 8th Army's recent joint military maneuver in Japan was part of a "strategic flexibility" scenario aimed at maintaining and expanding U.S. military domination of the Asia-Pacific by using its forces in South Korea as a flexible task force.

The "strategic flexibility" pursued by the U.S. was a military strategy, a war strategy for realizing its invariable ambition to put the Asia-Pacific, including the whole of the Korean Peninsula, under its military control, with South Korea as a stronghold, the commentary said.

The U.S., which regarded the Asia-Pacific as a key to carrying out its strategy for world domination, had increased the role of its forces in South Korea with the aim of intensifying moves for a new war of aggression in the peninsula and its vicinity, it said.

That the U.S. kept deploying high-tech military hardware in the region while intensifying joint military drills with forces of its allies indicated its intention to contain and pressurize other powers and stifle its "rivals" through collective military actions by putting the Asia-Pacific under its military control, the KCNA said.

"The U.S. scenario for realizing its strategy for supremacy is bound to go bust," it said.

The commentary said it had been reported the U.S. had set up in Hawaii a new command post for rapid deployment force capable of deploying thousands of troops within 48 hours in case of a "contingency" on the peninsula and other areas. Command of the 8th Army, the core of the U.S. forces in South Korea, was transferred to the Commander of the U.S. Army in the Pacific from the commander of the U.S. forces in South Korea, it said.
