USA to Enhance Military Presence in Asia Pacific - Vice President Pence

Galeno Paniagua | 21 Abril, 2017, 02:11

It would be the end of North Korea.

North Korea said in February that it had successfully tested a new type of medium- to long-range ballistic missile, the Pukkuksong-2, propelled by a solid-fuel engine.

North and South Korea are technically still at war because their 1950-53 conflict ended in a truce, not a peace treaty.

Pence told reporters that the North Korean people and military "should not mistake the resolve of the United States of America to stand with our allies", calling the alliance "iron-clad".

North Korea has accelerated its nuclear and missile tests in recent years, despite global condemnation and United Nations sanctions.

In his New Year's address, Kim Jong-un warned that the regime was close to testing an ICBM.

Despite those changes on the local and state level, the federal government continues to categorize marijuana as a Schedule I drug. A June 2015 Fairleigh Dickinson University/Public Mind Poll found 49 percent support personal pot use, 46 percent opposed it.

However, a display of military might coinciding with the celebration fizzled, as a North Korean missile exploded shortly after being launched. According to US officials, the missile exploded four to five seconds after being launched from a location near a North Korean submarine base in Sinpo along the country's eastern coast.

George Washington University professor Henry Nau, who served on the National Security Council staff in the Reagan administration, said the tough talk was primarily aimed at getting the attention of rogue elements in various parts of the world that have acted with impunity in the past.

There are also chances that USA might convince Japan to use its own missile-defense capabilities against a ballistic missile test traversing Japanese waters.

"If we notice any sign of assault on our sovereignty, our army will launch merciless military strikes against the U.S. aggressors, wherever they may exist, from the remote United States lands to the American military bases on the Korean Peninsula, such as those of Japan and elsewhere".

There has been some confusion over the whereabouts of a U.S. aircraft carrier group after Trump said last week that he had sent an "armada" as a warning to North Korea even as the ships were still far from Korean waters.

In Beijing, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi made a fresh appeal for calm. They agree it's their first choice.

In an interview with BBC on Tuesday, North Korea's Vice Foreign Minister Han Song-ryol said, "If the United States is reckless enough to use military means it would mean from that very day, an-all-out-war".

The next step would be to bring home the 54,000 US troops stationed in Japan and another 25,000 troops in South Korea. As the brown bomber jacket-clad vice president was briefed near the military demarcation line, two North Korean soldiers watched from a short distance away, one taking multiple photographs of the American visitor.
