Two days ago North Korea launched a missile over the Japanese island of Hokkaido, with the missile landing in the sea. Pyongyang has stepped up their aggression to the United States and neighbours South Korea by threatening to launch a missile attack in Guam, where the US has its Pacific military based.
The mock-attack included a bombing drill across the Korean Demilitarised Zone, B-1 bombers flew over the Korean Peninsula in reaction to the successful missile tests from Pyongyang.
Speaking to CNN, General Terrence O’Shaughnessy of the Pacific Air Force said:
North Korea’s actions are a threat to our allies, partners and homeland, and their destabilising actions will be met accordingly
Tensions are rising in the Korean peninsular. On Tuesday, South Korea dropped eight large bombs in a show of military strength.
The world waits with baited breath to see how Kim-Jong-un and the North Korea regime will react.
