US B-1B bombers from Guam drill off SKorea coast

US B-1B bombers from Guam drill off SKorea coast”

Defense Secretary Jim Mattis told the annual convention of the Association of the US Army on Monday that they should "be ready" with military options should diplomacy fail with North Korea.

The latest alleged cyberattack comes as the United States struggles to harden cyber defenses against adversaries such as Russia, China and North Korea, who have outpaced USA efforts to fold cyber weapons into conventional military operations.

The North Korean communist regime held drills to infiltrate the South Korea-U.S.

European Union ambassadors last month agreed new sanctions against the North, according to diplomatic sources, including a ban on investments in North Korea and on European Union exports of oil.

"We've got to be ready to ensure that there are military options that our President can employ if needed", he said.

US Deputy Secretary of State John Sullivan will hold a strategic dialogue with South Korea's Vice Foreign Minister Lim Sung-han on October 18.

A U.S. Air Force B-1B Lancer bomber, flanked by South Korean F-15K Slam Eagle fighters, drops a 2,000-pound live munition at Pilsung Training Range, South Korea, as a part of a show of force mission in response to North Korean unsanctioned intercontinental ballistic missile tests, September 17, 2017. Neither you nor I can say.

North Korea's nuclear weapons program has become the most urgent national security issue during the Trump presidency.

The U.S. military conducted another show of force to North Korea today as long-range B-1 bombers flew a nighttime mission over the Sea of Japan accompanied by Japanese and South Korean fighter aircraft.

There were "no risk-free options" when it came to North Korea, the general added, but said the danger it poses should not be underestimated.

Current and former USA officials have said the United States also must be more proactive in launching and openly discussing cyber offensives and retaliations, including in May, when retired Navy Adm. James Stavridis, the former commander of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation forces, told lawmakers "we should advertise them accordingly" to demonstrate ability and solve.

"Preparation for war is very expensive", Milley told troops.

North Korea has been found responsible for a number of high-profile attacks over the years, and is still technically at war with the US and South Korea.

To hide their location, hackers typically launch cyberattacks from computer servers far from home. In the past decade, it has been blamed for numerous cyberheists and other hacking attacks in South Korea and elsewhere.

Kaspersky is one of the world's top cybersecurity firms, providing popular anti-malware protection to computers at homes and companies worldwide.
