Deployment of USA carrier groups raise nuclear war threat: North Korea

  • North Korea has already fired 22 missiles

South Korean officials detected signs recently that North Korea's military was preparing for winter drills. South Korea was keeping its "full combat readiness against North Korea's possibility provocations", its military said Monday. "Dead stop. The flourishing ends, and the prison state of North Korea sadly begins".

South Korea and the United States were also conducting joint military drills in the East Sea utilizing three US aircraft carriers. That includes a stern speech delivered in South Korea's National Assembly on Tuesday, in which he said: "Do not underestimate us".

In a response to North Korea calling Trump's speech in South Korea "reckless remarks by an old lunatic", Trump tweeted from Hanoi on Sunday morning: "Why would Kim Jong-un insult me by calling me 'old, ' when I would NEVER call him 'short and fat?'" The regime has interpreted America's past restraint as weakness.

Trump and Kim have engaged in name-calling in recent months as tensions between the two countries increase and North Korea continues expanding its nuclear program.

North Korea complained to the United Nations on Monday about joint military exercises by the United State and South Korea, describing it as "the worst ever situation" because USA nuclear war equipment had been deployed ready to strike.


The three flattops are the USS Ronald Reagan, Nimitz and Theodore Roosevelt.

Visiting Asia, the president has tried to bring the world together in pressurising North Korea's nuclear weapons programme, something that's proving somewhat of a tough task.

The statement, which called the country's nuclear program "righteous and inevitable", continued: "He boasted about the "overwhelming superiority of USA power" and 'peace through strength.' But he needs to be well advised that it is the stand of the DPRK to defend our sovereignty and rights to existence and development by keeping a real balance of force with the U.S".

Three US aircraft carrier strike groups have been involved in the joint exercise in the Western Pacific in a rare show of force as President Donald Trump visits Asia.
