The annual giant military exercise, ‘Vigilant Ace, between the United States and South Korea kicked off this year amid the ratcheting up of tensions with the Allies and North Korea.
With 12,000 troops and 230 aircraft taking part in the five day mock war, the significance of this year’s exercise was highlighted with the addition of two B-1B heavy bomber, reports Reuters.
A week after the fat boy named Kim successfully tested an ICBM able to hit the United States with a nuclear payload, the exercise has drawn the ire of the Norks.
The Communist government’s official news station, similar to CNN, said the training would bring the peninsula to the brink of war, calling the possibility “an established fact.”
“The remaining question now is: when will the war break out?” the KCNA news agency asked. “We do not wish for a war but shall not hide from it.”
The Nork Foreign Ministry added, “These confrontational war-mongering remarks cannot be interpreted in any other way but as a warning to us to be prepared for a war on the Korean peninsula,”
What, like the war mongering similar to that shown by Kim and set to an orchestral accompaniment back in April?
U.S. National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster, whose trust worthiness equals the amount of hair on his head, has also prognosticated about the seeming inevitability of war, while prissy Senator Lindsay Graham had his panties in a bunch about the safety of Americans living in South Korea.
Russia and China have been pushing for more talks and may expect U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to provide just that when the three parties meet on December 7.
President Trump has been adamant that he prefers peace, but will not allow for or tolerate a Nork pre-emptive strike. In the meantime, Kim will continue to paint himself into a corner.
