N. Korea says Trump `begging' for nuclear war with drills

04 Декабря 2017

"The US aircraft that have landed on South Korea include six F-22s, six F-35s, six EA-18Gs", the official said.

Sen. Lindsey Graham said Sunday that he believes it's time to start moving the families of American military personnel out of South Korea as North Korea pushes the USA closer to a military conflict.

News about the launch comes within days of North Korea launching a new type of intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM).

The five-day Vigilant Ace drill - involving some 230 aircraft including F-22 Raptor stealth jet fighters - begins on Monday, five days after the North test-fired an intercontinental ballistic missile believed capable of hitting the USA mainland in a fresh challenge to President Donald Trump.

In the resolution, the National Assembly strongly denounced North Korea's nuclear and missile programs and called on the North to immediately end any act that sparks military tensions on the Korean Peninsula.

The missile is said to have flown almost 2,800 miles high and for a distance of more than 600 miles.

North Korea said the USA is "begging" for a nuclear war by planning the "largest-ever" joint aerial drill with South Korea just after concluding an exercise with nuclear-powered aircraft carriers.

"North Korea is continuing to pursue its ICBM in a methodical and pragmatic manner, making progress in incremental steps", said Joseph Bermudez from 38 North, a Washington-based North Korea monitoring project.

The Rodong Sinmun commentary said the aerial wargames show "the enemies' moves to start a nuclear war have reached a unsafe stage". "And I don't mean 'Big for North Korea.' Only a few countries can produce missiles of this size, and North Korea just joined the club".

North Korean monitoring group 38 North said the tremors could be an indication of "Tired Mountain Syndrome" - a condition where rock becomes increasingly permeable following a below-ground nuclear blast.

It is likely the ballistic missile, fired higher than any previous North Korean missile, broke up as it re-entered Earth's atmosphere, the official said. "But what we want to do is convince others, it is in their interest to do more", McMaster said.
