U.S. and South Korea Hold Large Scale Military Exercises as War Fears Grow AP

North Korea issued threats in advance of a planned aerial drill on December 4 involving US and South Korean forces in the region, but America and its ally have responded by going right on ahead with it.

The drills, which will end Friday, include simulated attacks on a "a mock North Korean missile launch site with mock North Korean radars", CNN reported, citing a South Korean official.

The drills follow reports last week that North Korea had successfully conducted another ballistic missile launch across Japan as the country continues to pursue its nuclear ambitions, as it continues to threaten both the USA and South Korea with wholesale nuclear destruction. Its official KCNA state news agency said at the weekend that U.S. President Donald Trump's administration was "begging for nuclear war" by staging the drills.

North Korea hates such displays of American military might at close range and claimed through its state media on Tuesday that the "U.S. imperialist war mongers' extremely reckless war hysteria" has put the region at risk of a nuclear war.

The article didn't name North Korea or any other military power, despite their proximity.

It lists the five destructive forces of a nuclear detonation: electro-magnetic pulses, early nuclear radiation, blast waves, light radiation and radioactive pollution, reports the Independent.

In comments attributed to an unnamed Foreign Ministry spokesman, North Korea also claimed high-ranked US officials, including CIA Director Mike Pompeo, have further confirmed American intent for war with a series of "bellicose remarks".

North Korea, which denounces such drills, said at the weekend that the recent war game pushed tensions on the peninsula toward "a flare-up".

North Korean Vice Foreign Minister Pak Myong Guk met Feltman on Wednesday in the North Korean capital, Pyongyang, and discussed bilateral cooperation and other issues of mutual interest, KCNA said.

The U.S. Air Force will send a number of B-1B Lancer bombers to South Korea on Wednesday to take part in a week-long joint military exercise following Pyongyang's latest missile test, according to Yonhap News Agency.

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

It has imposed a series of sanctions on South Korean firms and banned Chinese tour groups from going to the country in moves seen as economic retaliation.

Tensions have been running high since the missile launch late last month, which triggered global condemnation and a warning from the U.S. that the North Korean regime would be "utterly destroyed" if war broke out.

North Korea isn't the only one hot under the collar about the South Korea-U.S. joint aerial drills.
