South Korea, U.S. to hold joint naval exercise


Recommended Posts

CNN World:

South Korea and the United States will conduct a joint anti-submarine warfare exercise starting Sunday, the U.S. military announced Friday.

The exercise, the second in a series of combined maneuvers, is scheduled to end Thursday. It will be held in the waters west of the Korean Peninsula.

Units from the U.S. Navy will include the guided-missile destroyers USS Curtis D. Wilbur and USS Fitzgerald and the ocean surveillance ship USNS Victorious. Also participating will be a fast attack submarine and P-3C Orion aircraft.

The exercise is the second to be held since the March 26 sinking of a South Korean naval vessel in which 46 sailors drowned. A multinational investigation blamed North Korea for the sinking, but the communist nation denied any involvement.

The first joint exercise was held in late July and drew condemnation from North Korea.
I am beginning to think we are trying to provoke NK into making a move.
