US Troops Spotted Doing Drills With South Korea

On March 29, over 2,200 American Marines gathered for a tactical offensive exercise off the coast of Pohang, South Korea. High-tech weapons and amphibious vehicles were used for training by the troops, which appeared to be a simulated beach invasion. Officials maintained that the combined drills were regular but the action followed rumors that North Korea was increasing the size of its nuclear arsenal.

The US military hadn’t practiced the move in five years prior to the rehearsal on Wednesday. The military endeavor was first put on hold for diplomatic reasons, but the health crisis in 2020 further slowed things down. North Korea and the western nation are still at odds, and the revival of tactical preparedness drills like this does little to ease tensions. The timing in this situation could seem especially poor.

According to the Daily Mail, North Korean leader Kim Jong-un recently unveiled a set of photos showing him “inspecting” a fresh batch of nuclear bombs, which the socialist leader threatened his soldiers could use “anytime and anywhere.” He said that his military had discovered a way to produce more versatile nuclear devices that were smaller than those seen in earlier missiles.

According to NBC News, North Korea could create miniature warheads for eight different kinds of platforms, such as missiles and submarines. An ally of North Korea, Russia, has also frequently conducted weapons testing there.

According to a separate NBC News report, approximately 800,000 North Koreans have indicated they would join or rejoin the military if their nation felt the need to “counter” the United States. According to a local news source, the youth’s fervor showed their “unshakeable will of the younger generation to mercilessly wipe out the war maniacs, whom they claim are making last-ditch efforts to eliminate its precious socialist country.” 

Rand claims that North Korean officials have informed the US that they will regard any potentially aggressive action, including the deflection of a missile that is being fired at it, as “an act of war.”
