United States of America and South Korea Start Largest-Ever Joint Air Force Drills

United States of America and South Korea Start Largest-Ever Joint Air Force Drills

North Korea suggested the drills they will push the area to the "brink of war".

The article didn't name North Korea or any other military power, despite their proximity.

The nuclear war threat was carried by the official Korean Central News Agency this morning, hours after the United States flew its B-1B supersonic bombers over South Korea as part of a massive combined aerial war game involving hundreds of warplanes.

People in a Chinese province bordering North Korea have been offered a nuclear survival guide by the local state-run newspaper. -South Korean drills are preparation for invasion.

A South Korean ruling party lawmaker said Thursday that President Moon Jae-in and Chinese President Xi Jinping share an understanding that suspending North Korea's nuclear and missile development and joint South Korea-U.S. military exercises at the same time is the most realistic way to start resolving the standoff.

"The great success in the test-fire of ICBM Hwasong-15 is a priceless victory won by the great and heroic people of the DPRK who have upheld the WPK's line on the simultaneous development of the two fronts with loyalty", North Korea said in a statement, "without the slightest vacillation, despite the vicious challenges by the USA imperialists and their followers and manifold difficulties".

It did nothing to stop Pyongyang carrying out its biggest intercontinental ballistic missile test to date earlier this week, alongside claims that the weapon was capable of hitting the U.S. mainland.

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

China moves to control natural gas prices amid shortages
Chinese energy officials have admitted the resulting demand for natural gas had been underestimated. It's not only the shortage of natural gas that's causing problems.

Previously, North Korea threatened to shoot down B-1s flying even outside its airspace and to loft missiles at Guam, where the B-1s are based.

Yang Uk, a senior fellow at the Korea Defence and Security Forum, said B-1Bs would be key to any strike targeting major North Korean facilities.

The US's F-22 is fully stealth and North Korea likely can't hope to down it.

Both sides insist they don't want war, while saying they will act to defend themselves.

On Wednesday, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, raised doubts about USA participation in the Olympic Winter Games in South Korea in February, telling Fox News that Washington was concerned about its citizens.

North Korea regularly threatens to destroy South Korea and the United States and says its weapons programmes are necessary to counter USA aggression.

The New York Post quoted physicist David Wright, who estimated that the missile could have traveled 8,100 miles and would have "more than enough range to reach Washington, D.C., and in fact any part of the continental United States".

Meanwhile China, North Korea's neighbour and lone major ally, again urged calm and said war was not the answer.
