US Flew Bombers Over Korean Peninsula Late Tuesday, South Korea Says

World War 3

Two supersonic USA bombers flew over the Korean Peninsula, officials said Wednesday, in a show of force amid growing tensions with North Korea over its nuclear weapons program.

"Thus far, the suspected North Korean actions are consistent with a desire to demonstrate a deterrent capability rather than a prelude to an unprovoked first-strike in cyberspace; however, North Korea linked actors are bold, have launched multiple cyber attacks created to demonstrate national strength and resolve, and have little concern for potential discovery and attribution of their operations", FireEye researchers said in a blog. The South has taken an increasingly aggressive stance toward the North's belligerence amid back-and-forth threats of war between North Korea and U.S. President Donald Trump.

China, North Korea's closest ally, has suggested that Pyongyang freeze its nuclear missile development while the United States stop conducting military exercises with the South that raise fears in North Korea.

However, the South Korean defence ministry has refused to comment about this allegation.

Seoul and Washington have been on alert over a possible North Korean long-range missile test in line with this week's anniversary of the founding of the reclusive state's ruling party.

Sarnia's Sears Store Included In Closure Plans
The embattled retailer has been operating under the Companies' Creditors Arrangement Act since June. It also adds to the list of retail bankruptcies this year.

Russia's TASS news agency quoted North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho as saying: "With his bellicose and insane statement at the United Nations, Trump, you can say, has lit the wick of a war against us".

The statement by South Korea's Joint Chiefs of Staff also revealed that the two bombers carried out air-to-ground missile drills in waters off the east coast of South Korea, then flew over the South to waters between it and China to repeat the drill.

Robert Lee, a cybersecurity expert who consults with the industry, told NBC News that "any targeting of infrastructure by a foreign power is a concerning thing", but that North Korea and other adversaries "are far from being able to disrupt the electric grid".

Tensions between North Korea and the United States have risen in recent weeks over Pyongyang's nuclear weapons and missile programs.

"They likely remain committed to pursuing targets in the energy sector, especially in South Korea and among the USA and its allies, as a means of deterring potential war or sowing disorder during a time of armed conflict". North Korea routinely denies responsibility.
