North Korea: US 'begging' for war with 'largest ever' joint aerial drill

The two countries are set to begin their largest ever co-operative air exercise - dubbed Vigilant Ace - on Monday, with 230 aircraft, including F-22 Raptor stealth jet fighters, ready to take flight.

The KMA said the quake is a natural one but is presumed to have occurred in the aftermath of the nuke test.

That the missile is likely longer and heavier than its predecessors is evidenced by the sheer size of the transporter, which had nine axles instead of eight previously seen in North Korean transporters, he said.

A parliamentary committee on defense on Saturday approved a resolution to condemn North Korea's latest long-range missile test and its violation of an armistice agreement that ended the 1950-53 Korean War.

"We're asking China not to do us or anybody else a favor", he said. "This would be the most destabilizing development I think in the post-World War II period".

North Korea has repeatedly rejected accusations of human rights abuses and blames sanctions for a dire humanitarian situation.

"Denial means pre-emptive war as a last resort".

Victoria's Secret models slammed for using n-word at show
Social media users have pointed out that there are no black people in the room, so the word should not have been used. Victoria's Secret has not commented about the video.

The United States has demanded tougher global sanctions in response to the latest missile tests, including cuts in oil shipments to the isolated state.

"What is clear is that every time he conducts a missile launch, a nuclear test, he gets better", McMaster told Baier, "Whether it's a success or failure isn't as important as understanding that over the years he's been learning from failures, improving, and thereby increasing his threat to all of us".

North Korea, meanwhile, has been on a tear, undeterred by worldwide pressure.

"What matters is the fact that the drill simulating an actual war is to be staged at a time when insane President Trump is running wild", a commentary carried by the official Korean Central News Agency said. "The Chinese are trying, but ineffectively", he said. North Korea conducted its sixth nuclear test at the site on September 3.

The North says the Hwasong-15 missile fired on Wednesday can be tipped with a "super-large heavy warhead" capable of striking the whole United States mainland.

But analysts remain unconvinced that it has mastered the advanced technology to allow the rocket to survive re-entry to the Earth's atmosphere.
