Korea Issues More Threats as Drills Continue on Korean Peninsula

Officials in Pyongyang have described the exercises as the USA president "begging for a nuclear war".

South Korea's Joint Chiefs of Staff said Wednesday the Guam-based bomber simulated land strikes at a military field near South Korea's eastern coast during a drill with US and South Korean fighter jets. During the Cold War, Soviet doctrine-which North Korean doctrine is based on-called for snap exercises to provide cover for mobilization efforts to go to war.

There's good reason why Pyongyang would not like these aircraft slipping under its radar. The aircraft conducted simulated bombing drills over the Yellow Sea.

Some analysts said that's not a coincidence.

In recent months, US and South Korean troops have undertaken many exercises created to show North Korea of their military strength, although all appear to have failed to calm the rogue state's nuclear ambitions.

The annual joint exercise, called "Vigilant Ace", has been created to enhance readiness and operational capability and to ensure peace and security on the Korean peninsula, officials have said.

The Chinese air force launched an exercise of their own concurrent to the enormous air drills being run by the US and South Korea, causing experts to speculate what, exactly, Beijing is trying to communicate to the West.

North Korea's state media confirmed the arrival of Feltman and his entourage late on Tuesday without offering more details. The fighter aircraft are participating in the pinensula-wide routine exercise, Vigilant Ace-18.

North Korea alleged last week that it had successfully conducted another ICBM launch, shortly before once again threatening nuclear destruction for both South Korea and the United States.

"I don't think you or anybody else is willing to bet the farm, or a US city on the decision-making-rational decision-making of Kim Jong Un", McMaster said.

A F-15 from Kadena Air Base, Japan, touches down at Gwangju Air Base, Republic of Korea, Dec. 01, 2017.

It says its weapons programmes are a necessary defence against USA plans to invade.

"If "freeze for freeze" is going to work, then North Korea has to accept the verification process", Woo said. This threat came in retaliation for President Donald Trump's speech at the U.N. General Assembly in which he threatened to "totally destroy" North Korea, which the country branded a "declaration of war".
