  • Did Owner of Million Dollar US Home Help North Korea Evade Sanctions

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.

"The word that came out past year was decapitation because we were being threatened by North Korea having done nuclear tests and missiles, so we took those two events very seriously", said the Asan Institute's Choi.

That sparked a grim warning by President Donald Trump that Washington could rain "fire and fury" on the North.

But this year's exercises come just as North Korean leader Kim Jong Un actually de-escalated tensions by putting put on hold a plan to fire intermediate range ballistic missiles toward waters near the USA territory of Guam.

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".

It is becoming increasingly clear an all-out war could erupt on the peninsula.

"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.

During last year's Ulchi drills, North Korea test-fired a submarine-launched ballistic missile that flew about 310 miles in the longest flight by that type of weapon. The United States should take the initiative in pursuing such talks.

North Korea also stated calls for dialogue ring hollow in the face of sanctions, and peace and stability would only prevail when the "United States ends its policy of North Korea invasion".

"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.

Speaking in Beijing, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said North and South Korea and the United States all needed to make more effort to ease tension.

S&P said it would lower South Korea's credit rating if geopolitical tensions related to the DPRK escalate to a point that affects the country's economic, fiscal or external performance.

How has North Korea reacted?

Military exercises in which U.S. forces essentially rehearse and practice attacking the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) "are not amusing to [North] Korea", Radio Sputnik Loud & Clear host Brian Becker said Tuesday.

Kim said he would consider sending missiles into the waters off the coast of Guam in "mid-August".

It involves tens of thousands of South Korean soldiers.
