U.S. Air Force EA-18G Growler fighter jets fly over the Osan U.S. Air Base in Pyeongtaek South Korea Monday Dec. 4 2017. Hundreds of aircrafts including two dozen stealth jets began training Monday as the United States and South Korea launched their

B-1B Lancers, supersonic bombers carrying the largest conventional payload of guided and unguided munitions of any Air Force bomber, and F-22 Raptors and F-35 Lightning II Joint Strike Fighters, elite stealth fighters, participated in a simulated bombing exercise with South Korean F-15K and KF-16 fighter jets at Pilsung Firing Range in Taebaek, Gangwon Province, South Korea, which is near the border between the two Koreas, NK News reports. -South Korean military exercises that North Korea has denounced as pushing the peninsula to the brink of nuclear war, as tension mounts between the North and the United States.

Military observers, in fact, took notice recently when parasites were discovered in the stomach of a North Korean soldier who defected to South Korea, suggesting even front-line troops are enduring bad conditions as they operate near the DMZ.

The South Korean army's adoption of drones on the battlefield follows the footsteps of the US and Chinese armed forces, which have already adopted swarming drone tactics.

On Wednesday, a U.S. B-1B bomber joined the joint U.S.

The article didn't name North Korea or any other military power, despite their proximity. The Chinese Air Force said it will conduct high-sea exercises under combat conditions on a regular basis, as it aims to improve readiness and safeguard the country's "strategic interests".

Such a pattern appears to indicate that China will not simply sit by and watch as the U.S. partners with South Korea and Japan to carry out exercises that China regards as shows of force.

"Just spoke to President XI JINPING of China concerning the provocative actions of North Korea".

North Korea, which regularly threatens South Korea, the United States and their allies, has denounced the exercises.

B-1 flights represent the US's go-to response for North Korean provocations, such as missile tests, and the bomber flights draw a strong, sometimes dangerously escalating response from Pyongyang.

North Korea said that further escalation through joint drills "will only invite more bad retaliation and precipitate their self-destruction".

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. It comes days after North Korea launched its most powerful ballistic missile yet.
