22 Août, 2017, 09:54 | Author: Claudine Rigal
North Korea had threatened to fire a missile into the waters off Guam, a United States territory that holds two major U.S. military bases. This year, 17,500 members of the USA military and almost 50,000 servicemembers from the South Korean military are taking part.
The North responded by threatening to fire missiles towards the US Pacific island territory of Guam, but later said it was holding off while it waited to see what the United States would do next.
"In order to make a nuclear weapon deployable it has to be small and light, but North Korea doesn't seem to have this technology", he said.
That sparked a grim warning by President Donald Trump that Washington could rain "fire and fury" on the North. The exercise involves 17,500 American troops and 50,000 South Korean soldiers, according to the USA military command in South Korea and Seoul's Defense Ministry.
-South Korean computer-simulated defensive exercise set to kick off tomorrow is meant to strengthen joint efforts for the defense of South Korea, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said today.
"No one can vouch that these huge forces concentrated in South Korea will not go over to an actual war action now that the military tensions have reached an extreme pitch in the Korean peninsula", the statement said.
The 11-day exercise will be the first major exercises since North Korea test-fired two intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) last month (July) that appeared to bring much of the USA within range.
Today's warning came a day ahead of the ten-day Ulchi Freedom Guardian military, a joint exercise with the US and South Korea. What's worrisome is that mainstream US media like The New York Times and Washington Post also began to join the chorus.

"North Korea will conduct a sixth nuclear test in order to bring the United States to negotiations", said Yoo Ho-yeol, professor of unification and diplomacy at Seoul's Korea University.
The United States and South Korea also hold larger war games in the spring, called Key Resolve and Foal Eagle, which involve live-fire exercises and training with tanks, aircraft and warships.
It's nearly certain that this year's drills will trigger some kind of reaction from North Korea.
