On the 85th birthday of North Korea’s army, dictator Kim Jong-Un saluted the army as it practiced for war by firing hundreds of rockets and torpedoes at mock enemy warships on Tuesday.
Meanwhile, on Wednesday, the U.S. installed a missile defense system in South Korea.
It was reported that South Korea also conducted joint military live-fire drills with the United States at a training field located near the border with North Korea.
A U.S. guided-missile submarine docked in South Korea as the USS Carl Vinson aircraft carrier moves toward the peninsula for more joint exercises with South Korea.
Envoys from the United States, Japan, and South Korea are currently deciding what to do about the growing threat posed by North Korea’s nuclear weapons and missiles program.
On Monday, President Donald Trump said that the North Korean dictator is just blowing smoke as he admonished members of the United Nations Security Council for letting the situation fester, stating that the “status quo” on North Korea is “unacceptable,” and “the council must be prepared to impose additional and stronger sanctions.”
Critics are now warning that a serious crisis could be looming if threats between the United States and North Korea continue to escalate.
“We could stumble needlessly into what would be the biggest crisis in East Asia since the United States intervened in the Korean War in 1950,” said senior analyst Jonathan Pollack from the Brookings Institution.
“The situation prevailing on the Korean Peninsula is so tense that a nuclear war may break out due to the frantic war drills of the U.S. imperialists and their vassal forces for aggression,” warned senior North Korean military officer, Gen Pak Yong Sik.
U.S. commercial satellite images have recently shown a flurry of activity around North Korea’s nuclear test site, and dictator Kim has claimed that his military is in the “final stages” of launching an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM).
