North Korea missile launch 'IMMINENT' as United States deploy nuke detection plane


South Korea expects more provocative acts by North Korea next month, to coincide with the North Korean communist party's founding anniversary and China's Communist Party Congress.

Moon said the South Korean military should become strong enough to retake its wartime control from the Americans and to "play a leading role in establishing a stronger and more stable combined defense system" together with the United States.

Alongside the 300-kilometer-range Hyunmoo II-A and 500-kilometer-range Hyunmoo II-B, the Hyunmoo II-C is expected to boost South Korea's pre-emptive strike capability against North Korea by putting most of its territory within its range.

Although neither side specified a date for the transfer, an opposition lawmaker said Friday that Seoul is seeking to take back OPCON during President Moon Jae-in's five-year term. And the North's leader, Kim Jong-un, has been trading increasingly bellicose threats with Trump.

The Pentagon has kept bombers in the Pacific for years at Guam's Andersen Air Force Base, perhaps one of the main reasons that the North Korean regime has threatened to strike the US island territory.

According to the assessment of the North Korea situation in the RUSI paper, a potential "preventive war" waged by US President Donald Trump would probably escalate quite swiftly.

This report claims that citizens in North Korea sought to become a member of the army to defend socialism and the leader and crush the imperialists from the US who run amuck to destroy the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.

"The independent sortie of a US B-1B Lancer strategic bomber squadron over worldwide waters in the East Sea is an extremely risky act, created to drive the situation of the Korean Peninsula to extremes and an anti-Pyongyang provocation that can not be overlooked in the least", the state-run Uriminzokkiri said in a commentary on Friday.

"What is most important for now is for the worldwide community to unite", Amano said.

The US and South Korea are technically still at war with North Korea because the 1950-53 Korean conflict ended with a truce and not a peace treaty.

US and South Korean bomber and fighter jets fly near the North Korean border earlier this month.

He also insisted, "If you add to that, dislocation of global economy, consequences of nationalism in China and for the U.S. role in the Pacific for the next 50 years - all of these are unimaginably heavy consequences of conflict with North Korea".

The United States regularly sends aircraft carriers, as well as Los Angeles-class submarines, to South Korea during annual joint military exercises.

Military airstrips in South Korea are not long enough for big, heavy B-52s, and the United States does not want its high-tech fighter jets sitting within North Korean artillery range, he said.
