Ellsworth airmen show force after latest North Korean missile launch

Theresa May the Prime Minister

U.S. heavy bombers and stealth jet fighters delivered a show of force directed at North Korea in a live-fire drill Thursday, two days after Pyongyang's provocative test-launch of a ballistic missile that flew over northern Japan.

South Korea is seeking to revise it, reportedly with an aim to double the warhead weight limit to produce more powerful missiles.

The latest resolution, which aims to cut North Korea's $3 billion annual export revenue by a third, bans North Korean exports of coal, iron, iron ore, lead, lead ore and seafood.

Hours after the announcements by Washington and Seoul, North Korea's official Korean Central News Agency issued a short statement calling the exercises a "rash act of those taken aback" by North Korea's recent missile launch.

But despite Pyongyang's propaganda in favour of the ICBM Hwasong-14, the weapon of choice has recently been the intermediate range ballistic missile (IRBM) Hwasong-12.

The North apparently wanted to show off its resolve and ability to carry out the threat of striking waters near Guam in "enveloping fire", the ministry said.

"There's a possibility of strategic provocations, including additional ballistic missile launches and a sixth nuclear test", the ministry said. "This complex mission clearly demonstrates our solidarity with our allies and underscores the broadening cooperation to defend against this common regional threat". "I think if the person was talking about attacking the Hainan Island in China or talking about attacking Kamchatka Peninsula in Russian Federation, they might look at it a little differently", he said.

Asked why there was no defensive military action taken over the launch, Mattis suggested that U.S. and Japanese forces nearly immediately knew the missile, which landed far out into the Pacific Ocean, was not targeted at anyone. -South Korean war games.

South Korean analysts said North Korea's threat against Guam and the launch over Japan on Tuesday are likely attempts to make launches over Japan an accepted norm and win itself greater military space in a region dominated by enemies.
