Korea Issues More Threats as Drills Continue on Korean Peninsula

08 Декабря, 2017, 09:28 | Author: Valerie Burke
  • U.S. Air Force EA-18G Growler fighter jets fly over the Osan U.S. Air Base in Pyeongtaek South Korea Monday Dec. 4 2017. Hundreds of aircrafts including two dozen stealth jets began training Monday as the United States and South Korea launched their

-South Korea aerial exercise here this week.

The aircraft entered the Korean Air Defense Identification Zone (KADIZ) over the waters south of Jeju Island and conducted simulated bombing drills over the Yellow Sea near North Korea and China, according to the official, cited by Yonhap. Around 12,000 USA service members, including from the Marines and Navy, will join South Korean troops.

Japan is said to have expressed interest in Lockheed Martin's Joint Air-to-Surface Missile, which can strike targets on the Korean peninsula from 600 miles away.

Seoul and Washington have been conducting a massive air combat drill known as "Vigilant Ace".

"The threat here on the peninsula is very real, and countering that threat needs to be in the forefront of our minds", 51st Fighter Wing Commander Col. William Betts said in a release.

Those areas overlap with Japanese and South Korean airspace.

Quoting a document posted on the Chinese social media platform Weibo, the report also reported that Changbai County in Jilin Province-located just across the border with North Korea- plans to set up five shelters for North Korean refugees to prepare for a possible war on the Korean Peninsula.

"If "freeze for freeze" is going to work, then North Korea has to accept the verification process", Woo said.

"What the president's saying is, we all need to take care of it", National Security Advisor Lt. Gen. HR McMaster told Fox News on December 3.

The United States and South Korea deployed THAAD, a USA missile defense system, that is strongly opposed in Beijing.

The Trump Administration does not seem to consider the North Korean dictator to be a rational actor, and therefore, seems to believe he can not be deterred.

"The overall scale of forces helps contribute to a realistic site picture for those participating, especially with regard to air assets integrating in a war-time scenario with their support personnel and equipment", the US military said.

"And as you know, this is a regime that's never met a weapon that it hasn't proliferated".

"It's insane to send thousands of children to South Korea, given the provocation of North Korea", Senator Lindsey Graham said on CBS's Face the Nation. That led to events such as the Able Archer incident in 1983 where the Kremlin mistook a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation exercise as preparations to launch a nuclear first strike against the Soviet Union-the closest Washington and Moscow ever came to World War III.

China has condemned North Korean nuclear tests and gradually distanced themselves from their once-close ally, even backing United Nations sanctions against the fellow socialist country in September following a test of their nuclear program.
