South Korean media has not shied away from the mounting tension between North Korea and the US.
But South Korea's Yonhap news agency reported the allies were mulling scrapping an initial plan to bring in two aircraft carriers to the peninsula to take part in the drill.

According to a press statement from Seoul's Defense Ministry, the drill is a "computer simulated defensive exercise created to enhance readiness, protect the region and maintain stability".
"North Korea must understand its repeated provocations are what is forcing South Korea and the USA to conduct the joint defensive drills, which in turn, keeps the vicious cycle going", Moon told a Cabinet meeting.
So far the US and South Korea have rejected this idea.

"Until somebody solves the part of the equation that shows me that 10 million people in Seoul don't die in the first 30 minutes from conventional weapons, I don't know what you're talking about, there's no military solution here, they got us", he told The American Prospect.
