N. Korea says U.S. threats make war unavoidable

N. Korea says U.S. threats make war unavoidable”

The military exercises, called "Vigilant Ace", are created to enhance joint readiness and operational capability of United States extended deterrence, South Korea's Joint Chiefs of Staff said in a statement.

It is quite unusual for the U.S.to send its B-1B aircraft stationed in Guam to Korea on two consecutive days.

The US responded to North Korea's latest missile launch with a simulated bomb run from a B-1B Lancer bomber and an F-22, a marked escalation in military signaling.

The exercise was part of five-day-long air force annual exercise known as Vigilant Ace that started Monday in which 230 aircrafts are taking part in simulated strikes over South Korea.

It involves six F-22s, six F-35As and a dozen F-35Bs, along with more than 200 other fighter jets of the two nations and 12,000 personnel.

According to him, the exercise was also attended by the South Korean air force F-15Ks and KF-16s.

The Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs on Wednesday expressed concerns over the continued deployment of USA strategic assets.

North Korea has long spoken out against joint drills between the US and South Korea. "The ones that will suffer the most are ordinary people", Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said.

North Korean state media - which describes the B-1B Lancer as a nuclear strategic bomber - denounced the exercise over the weekend.

The combined B-1 and F-22 drill represents a step up in the normal tit for tat between the U.S. and North Korea.

Essentially, despite the deep differences bitter tensions, the U.S. and North Korea have deterred each other from attacking - much like the USA and the Soviet Union during the Cold War.

But North Korea has a problem there.

United States national security adviser H.R. McMaster said at the weekend the possibility of war was "increasing every day".

The North Korean spokesperson described the remark as an "alarming sign", given the statements were made amid the "largest-ever joint aerial drill". "It is a trite method employed by aggressors to mount a sudden preemptive attack while pretending to conduct war drills", the article said.

The unnamed Foreign Ministry spokesman said: 'The large-scale nuclear war exercises conducted by the USA in succession are creating touch-and-go situation on the Korean peninsula and series of violent war remarks coming from the USA high-level politicians amid such circumstances have made an outbreak of war on the Korean peninsula an established fact.
