Korean lawmaker says N. Korea hacked war plans

Korean lawmaker says N. Korea hacked war plans

The constant threat of war against North Korea's adversaries is so integral to Kim Jong Un's regime that state media are dominated by it and national events are marked with military parades and missile tests.

On Saturday, a US nuclear-powered Los Angeles-class attack submarine arrived in South Korea.

Two US B-1 bombers carried out a training exercise today with Japanese and South Korean military aircraft in the vicinity of the Sea of Japan, the US military said, amid growing tension over North Korea's missile and nuclear programs.

South Korean analysts say the nighttime flights, and also the decisions by Washington and Seoul to release the itinerary of the warplanes, are aimed at sending a clear warning to North Korea and demonstrating capability for surprise attacks.

Mr Ri also said the North's nuclear programme is a "precious fruition of the Korean people's bloody struggle for defending the destiny and sovereignty of the country from the protracted nuclear threat of the U.S. imperialists and a treasured sword of justice". "The worldwide community won't accept North Korea as a nuclear power".

"The focus of the efforts of the U.S., South Korea, Australia and others are to ensure that maximum political, diplomatic, economic pressure is placed on North Korea so that is changes its course", Foreign Minister Julie Bishop told reporters at the truce village of Panmunjom in the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ).

A spokesman for the South's Joint Chiefs of Staff said its military was closely monitoring the movements of the North Korean army and maintaining full readiness.

"Our prime minister has made very clear our support for the US (policy), but more importantly, our support is for regional stability and security", Payne said. Some military experts believe that power supply problems make it hard for North Korea to turn on its air defense radars for 24 hours a day and also that the systems might struggle to effectively track advanced warplanes such as B-1Bs, which have low radar-cross sections.

'Carpool Karaoke' taped before Chester Bennington's death released
Six days before his death , though, Bennington and members of Linkin Park taped an episode of Carpool Karaoke: The Series . Series creator James Corden previously said that the late singer's family would decide if the episode would air.

Jimmy Carter, the 93-year-old former United States president, has reportedly indicated that he is willing to travel to Pyongyang to meet North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un in an effort to head off a military clash in Northeast Asia.

The newspaper described Gates as expressing profound concern during a speech relayed live at an International Bar Association conference in Sydney, citing Trump's tweets about North Korean leader Kim Jong-un as becoming excessively inflammatory. But Kim, the third generation of his family to rule, is officially revered in the North, and any suggestion of removing him from power is taken extremely seriously in Pyongyang.

Last week, the North Korea propaganda web site Meari indicated operations have resumed at the Kaesong facility, and another propaganda web site, Uriminzokkiri posted a comment saying, "It is nobody's business what we do in an industrial complex where our nation's sovereignty is exercised".

Lee said that 235 gigabytes of military documents were taken, but the military has yet to identify 80 percent of the documents that were compromised.

CNN reported that depending on the level of detail in the stolen plans, the hack could pose serious challenges for the US-South Korean alliance.

Australia expects North Korea will continue with its provocative behavior in the near future, "but the stronger the worldwide community's response is. the less options North Korea would have", she also said.

North Korea has yet to comment on either the bombing drills or the hacking claims.
