The comments come amidst a series of large-scale joint military drills being carried out on the Korean Peninsula by the USA and South Korean military, showcasing immensely powerful aircraft such as four B-1B Lancer strategic bombers and six F-22 Raptor stealth fighter jets. Other U.S. assets include two B-1B bombers and six Growler electronic warfare jets, as well as dozens of F-15s and F-16s.

The South Korean Air Force deployed F-15K, KF-16 and F-5 fighter jets.

U.S. B-1B Lancer bombers and advanced stealth fighter jets conducted joint bombing drills in South Korea on Wednesday, as a part of ongoing air drills this week with South Korea.

Two dozen US stealth fighter jets took part in the drills, six of them F-22s, six of them F-35As, as well as a dozen F-35Bs, marking the first time the highly-advanced jets have cruised the skies above Korea at the same time.

The Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs on Wednesday expressed concerns over the continued deployment of USA strategic assets. "The ones that will suffer the most are ordinary people", Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said.

USA military drills on the Korean Peninsula were always a fairly common occurrence, and one which fuels a lot of tension.in the region.

North Korea hates the B-1 bomb runs, and have threatened to shoot the plane down.

Former LSU cornerback Saivion Smith commits to Alabama
Alabama landed a commitment from one of its biggest targets in the 2018 class in former LSU cornerback Saivion Smith on Wednesday. Smith played at Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College in 2017, recording 31 tackles and two interceptions.

Quoting an unnamed spokesman from the Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of the Country of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (CPRC and DPRK, respectively), KCNA referred to the US and South Korean military might as "puppet forces" and warned that a planned December 4. aerial drill is a "war rehearsal [that] is just a grave military provocation".

"Through the exercise, the South Korean and USA air forces have demonstrated the alliance's strong will and capability for strong retaliation against North Korea's nuclear and missile threats", the South Korean military said in the statement, adding that the exercise also improved the two air forces' readiness to deploy "a rapid response force".

But amid North Korea's and the US's escalating rhetoric and military pressure, one option has emerged that's only slightly less desirable than all-out combat: perpetual brinkmanship.

'We do not wish for a war but shall not hide from it, and should the United States miscalculate our patience and light the fuse for a nuclear war, we will surely make the USA dearly pay the consequences with our mighty nuclear force which we have consistently strengthened'.

United States national security adviser H.R. McMaster said at the weekend the possibility of war was "increasing every day". The two countries kicked off their largest ever joint air exercise on Monday.

"Series of violent war remarks coming from the US high-level politicians amid such circumstances have made an outbreak of war on the Korean peninsula an established fact", the spokesperson said.

North Korea says war is now inevitable between Washington and Pyongyang.
