U.S. strategic bombers to train in South Korea

U.S. strategic bombers to train in South Korea

"The largest joint air force exercise ever can be seen as a way of putting pressure on North Korea and showing a military demonstration to stop any further actions from North Korea, such as a seventh nuclear test or ICBM tests", Kim Yong-Hyun of the Dongguk University Graduate School said. Among the aircraft sent by the us were a B-1B bomber, several F-22 Raptor stealth jets, F-35 stealth jets, and F-16 fighters. There were no details on when the drills took place, but Chen said the maneuvers involved "fighter jets, early warning aircraft and surface-to-air missile forces".

In a commentary Tuesday, the North's official Rodon Sinmun called the exercises "a trite method employed by aggressors to mount a sudden preemptive attack while pretending to conduct war drills".

North Korea has vehemently criticized the drills since the weekend, saying the exercise precipitates US and South Korean "self-destruction".

Responding to the announcement, North Korea's Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of the Country described President Trump as "insane" and claimed the drills would "push the already acute situation on the Korean peninsula to the brink of nuclear war".

Pyongyang has regularly denounced joint military drills between the United States and South Korea as acts of aggression, characterising them as preludes to an invasion. They come on the heels of North Korea's test last week of its most powerful long-range missile, which experts say puts all of the United States in targeting range.

The U.S. -South Korea drills coincide with a rare visit to the isolated North by United Nations political affairs chief Jeffrey Feltman.

China's latest military exercise may serve as a reminder to the U.S. that the two military powers could find themselves on opposite ends once again if North Korea is attacked.

The South Korean army's adoption of drones on the battlefield follows the footsteps of the USA and Chinese armed forces, which have already adopted swarming drone tactics.

It is the first time the fifth-generation jets joined the Vigilant Ace exercise.

China responded to an exercise involving the USA and South Korean militaries with one near the Koreas that it said had never been done before.
