China's air force drills warn US, South Korea

Image of North Korea's latest test launch of an intercontinental ballistic missile or ICBM. According to him, the exercise was also attended by the South Korean air force F-15Ks and KF-16s.

The massive week-long simulated air warfare exercise will include no less than a total of 230 aircraft including six stealthy top-of-the-line Lockheed Martin F-22 Raptor air superiority fighters and six-possibly as many as 18-Lockheed Martin F-35 Joint Strike Fighters.

"The threat here on the peninsula is very real, and countering that threat needs to be in the forefront of our minds", 51st Fighter Wing Commander Col. William Betts said in a release.

But while Beijing is openly opposed to the North Korean nuclear program, they are certainly not in favor of the United States invading North Korea, putting an end to the Kim government, and either reunifying North Korea with the US-friendly South or installing a US-friendly regime in North Korea. "We will ensure we have no regrets if we find ourselves executing contingency operations". This threat came in retaliation for President Donald Trump's speech at the U.N. General Assembly in which he threatened to "totally destroy" North Korea, which the country branded a "declaration of war".

"What the president's saying is, we all need to take care of it", National Security Advisor Lt. Gen. HR McMaster told Fox News on December 3.

During the Korean War that began in 1950 and is still technically ongoing, China came to the aid of the communist Northern Korean factions against the USA and their Southern allies, repaying the fledgling North's contribution to their own civil war, which the Chinese Communist Party had only won the previous year with Korean communist help. The exercise provides realistic air combat training for the United States and Republic of Korea, testing and refining the readiness and interoperability of US-ROK forces to deter aggression and provide a rapid response to attack.

The Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs on Wednesday expressed concerns over the continued deployment of US strategic assets. "Its intentions are to use that weapon for nuclear blackmail, and then, to, quote, you know, "reunify" the peninsula under the red banner".

North Korea's foreign ministry responded to the exercises by accusing President Donald Trump of making an "extremely risky nuclear gamble" and "driving the situation of the Korean peninsula to the brink of crisis".

Officials in Pyongyang have described the exercises as the US president "begging for a nuclear war". The exercises have been condemned as a provocation by the isolated North.
